In the Series so far, racing in IRC 3 Machismo is first, followed by Light and the Pandanova. All three boats won a race. Sadly Pandanova suffered a bit of damage on the first day and had

It is for them that we designed the Sigma range." 25 years later the Sigma 38 is still living up to these challenges.

    The 2015 Chairman's Report

    Looking back over 2015, I cannot avoid characterising the last season as a consolidation year for the Sigma 38 Class. But everyone needs to step back, take stock and consolidate, every once in a while. It seems we are all getting older, starting to question the sanity of flashing round the cans in early spring, and even the decision to concentrate spring sailing into two the weekends of the Warsash Spring Championships is not
