Welcome to the Carey Olsen Jersey Regatta … et soyez bienvenus  nos amis français!


Season’s Greetings, one and all

With fond memories of last September’s Regatta still fresh in our minds, I am pleased to report that the combined clubs’ organising committee is off the starting blocks for the 22nd edition of the Island’s flagship sailing event, the first that will carry the name ‘Carey Olsen’, the well-known leading offshore law firm that will be sponsoring the Jersey Regatta over the next three years.

Slated for Friday 11th to Sunday 13th September, the Regatta programme is designed to provide three days’ of fun and competitive racing for cruiser/racer, sportsboat, quarter ton, dayboat, dinghy, sport catamaran and windsurfer classes all coupled with the traditional lively social programme ashore. Running over 12th and 13th, only, the 7th Spinlock IRC Channel Islands Championship will, undoubtedly, be the top attraction for the IRC-rated cruiser classes. (Go to www.rorcrating.com if you do not have a Spinlock IRC rating but would like to compete in the Championship).

The Regatta is open to all-comers and we look forward to providing a very warm welcome to our regular visitors and, especially, those joining us for the first time. Whilst the Regatta might seem a fair way off, now is the time to put the date in your diary.

We are most grateful to Jersey Marinas for confirming the provision of complimentary berthing and to Condor Ferries who will be providing discounted travel on all of their routes for those transporting boats to take part in the Regatta,

The Notice of Race will be published in March but please contact the Regatta Office, c/o St Helier YC, either by e-mailing info@jerseyregatta.com or by calling 00 44 (0)1534 732229 if you need further information, in advance. We will be delighted to hear from you and pleased to help.

On behalf of the combined clubs’ Carey Olsen Jersey Regatta, I wish you joy, good health, prosperity and fair winds in the year ahead
