Incorporating the Spinlock IRC Channel Island Championships

Welcome to the Jersey Regatta ... et soyez bienvenus à nos amis français!

Dear All

Welcome to the Jersey Regatta web site, home to results, reports and links to photos of previous Regattas and, as we progress, all the information that you will need to smooth your way to joining us for the 18th combined clubs’ annual Regatta, the ‘flagship’ event of the Island’s sailing programme.

We are truly delighted to have UBS AG Jersey, the leading provider of wealth management solutions in the Channel Islands, as our sponsor for the fourth year running.Their enthusiasm and keen support is key to ensuring the ongoing success and ever-increasing popularity of this great event.

Our thanks also go to Ports of Jersey who, through Jersey Marinas, will be providing complimentary berthing and much other assistance to help ensure that everyone has a truly enjoyable Regatta experience.

As ever, we plan to provide three days of fun and competitive racing for all, experienced racing folk and debutants alike. A packed schedule will provide racing  for cruiser, sportsboat, dayboat, dinghy, sport-catamaran and, for the first time in the Regatta’s history, Kona windsurfer classes (a hearty welcome to them!). The lively activity afloat will be coupled with a busy social programme ashore when all can enjoy the camaraderie and warm welcome that awaits them in the Clubs.

For cruiser skippers, this year sees the implementation of dual scoring using both IRC ratings and RYA NHC handicaps. In short, this means that boats in cruiser classes 1 and 2 will race with both their IRC rating (if they have one) and an NHC handicap to produce results under both systems.

In relation to this, we are delighted to be hosting the Spinlock IRC Channel Islands Championships again this year.  British and French boats without a rating who would like to compete in the Championships can obtain a low-cost  Single Event Rating (SER) from the RORC Rating Office (www.rorcrating.com).

This year, we are again pleased to be supporting the Jubilee Sailing Trust, a registered charity whose mission is to promote the integration of people of all physical abilities through the challenge and adventure of tall ship sailing aboard two very special ships, Lord Nelson and Tenacious.
