Carey Olsen Jersey Regatta
Welcome to the Jersey Regatta, kindly sponsored for the third year running by offshore law firm Carey Olsen. All is set for what we anticipate will be another truly enjoyable and memorable three days competition for all, novice and regular sailors, alike. As ever, this is an open event for local and visiting boats who are assured of a very warm welcome.
The Regatta gets under way on Thursday 1st September with a Commodores welcome followed by a reception and briefing in St Helier YC. The cruiser, sportsboat and Quarter Ton classes open the race programme with a coastal race on Friday morning whilst the dayboat, dinghy, sport catamaran and windsurfer fleets make their first appearance in St Aubins Bay later in the afternoon. These races are separate to the main Regatta carrying many trophies and prizes of their own.
Races held over Saturday and Sunday count for the Regatta prizes, trophies and class championships. Indeed, there are place prizes and trophies galore in all classes for each day. We are delighted that the prestigious GBR IRC Channel Islands Championship for cruisers (rorcrating.com) will, again, run in tandem with the cruiser programme and are grateful to Spinlock for donating prizes for this, the 9th edition of this great event.
