Welcome to the Combined Clubs’ Jersey Regatta, the Island’s flagship sailing event, sponsored for the second year running by leading global financial services company UBS AG.
With the Regatta taking place in and to the south of St Aubin’s Bay from 12th to 14th September, we are looking forward to three days of great racing for sportsboat, cruiser/racer, dayboat, sport-catamaran and dinghy classes. Last year saw more boats competing than ever with real growth in the number of young sailors. We were also delighted to welcome even more visitors and are looking forward to this trend continuing. Whilst the emphasis is on fun and competitive times afloat we have also planned for a busy and convivial time ashore with plenty of opportunity for visitors to meet local sailors and to sample the Clubs’ warm hospitality.
For the very first time, IRC sportsboats and cruisers will compete in the first Channel Islands Spinlock IRC Regional Championships and we hope that those owners who do not have an IRC rating might take advantage of the Spinlock IRC Limited Validity (LV) TCC. This is a lower-cost option intended for those who wish to do only one or two IRC events in a year. See www.rorcrating.com/lv-tcc for further information. As ever, cruisers without a rating will be accommodated in our Island Handicap class.
As ever, Jersey Marinas will be providing their customary warm welcome and free berthing for cruiser and dayboat entrants during the week of the Regatta whilst Jersey Tourism is a great starting point for those seeking hotel accommodation during what is a very busy time in the Island’s life.
The Notice of Race has been published and can be found under ‘Race Administration’. All news and updates will be posted here and in the yacht clubs. Should you need further information, please do not hesitate to contact us either by phone 0044 (0)1534 732229 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
Fair winds and best wishes for happy sailing in 2014. We look forward to seeing you at the UBS Jersey Regatta in September.
