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 from 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 the leading provider of wealth management solutions in the Channel Islands, UBS AG Jersey, as our sponsor for the fourth year in a row. Their enthusiasm and outstanding support is a key factor in ensuring the ongoing popularity and success of this leading Channel Islands event.

For the 18th year running, our thanks also go to Ports of Jersey who, through Jersey Marinas, will be providing complimentary berthing and a great deal of other assistance to ensure locals and visitors alike, enjoy the best possible experience.

As ever, this is a true community event in which we plan to provide three days of fun and competitive racing for all. A busy schedule will provide racing for cruiser/racer, sportsboat, dayboat, dinghy and sport-catamaran classes coupled with a lively social programme ashore, to give crews the opportunity to enjoy the camaraderie and ever-warm welcome that awaits them in the Clubs.

Cruiser/racer skippers, please note that boats will be racing either with a Spinlock IRC rating or, for those boats without a rating, a handicap derived from the RYA National Handicap for Cruisers (NHC) system. Boats without a rating wishing to race in an IRC class can obtain a low-cost, Single Event Rating (SER) from the RORC Rating Office (www.rorcrating.com). This facility is available to British and French boats, only.

We are very pleased to be hosting the Spinlock IRC Channel Islands Championships again this year. This, we hope, will encourage boats to take up the offer of an SER, if they do not already hold a Rating, to enable them to participate in the Championships.

The Notice of Race, with full details of everything the Regatta has to offer, will be released in March. Where needed, further information may be obtained from the Regatta Office, St Helier YC, either by e-mailing info@jerseyregatta.com, or by telephoning 00 44 (0)1534 732229.

For a wealth of information on Jersey, particularly in respect of finding accommodation, restaurants and night-life, we recommend the Visit Jersey website, www.jersey.com, as an excellent starting point.

On behalf of the organising committee, I wish you much happiness, good health, prosperity and great sailing in the year ahead.
