The build-up to the seventeenth combined clubs’ Jersey Regatta continues! All is going well as we eagerly anticipate three days’ of great racing, fun and camaraderie, the hallmark of this ‘flagship’ sailing event.
Now in their third year of sponsorship, we are truly delighted to have UBS AG on board again, their tremendous generosity, support and enthusiasm are greatly appreciated.
At the time of writing, entries are rolling in and we are looking forward to another bumper turnout. A coastal race for cruisers is an added attraction, this year. We hope that this will prove irresistible to those who might fight shy of the thrills and spills of round-the-cans and olympic course racing. Anyone who has yet to sign up will find everything that they need to know in the Notice of Race, available as hard copy in the Clubs and on the Race Administration button on the right of this page. Please note that the entry cut-off date is 1st September.
Well in excess of 100 boats raced last year, including many from Guernsey, France and the UK. Needless to say, visiting boats make the Regatta that bit more special and provide extra challenge and an additional element of excitement for Jersey’s racing fraternity. They will, most certainly, receive a very warm welcome and we wish them ‘bonne chance’ in their forthcoming attempts to prise the ‘family silver’ out of the locals’ hands.
Jersey Marinas are, again, generously providing complimentary berthing for entrants during the week of the Regatta. Visiting boats should contact us if they plan to arrive earlier. For anyone seeking accommodation, www.jersey.com is a very good starting point but early booking is essential.
This year, we are 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. Please help us to support them in the excellent work that they do.
Please contact us either by phone 00 44 (0) 1534 732229 or e-mail email@example.com should you need further information.
Fair winds, happy and safe sailing, we look forward to seeing you at the Regatta.
