Welcome to the Jersey Regatta … et soyez bienvenus nos amis français!
Welcome to the UBS Jersey Regatta! Here, you will find all the information you need to smooth your way to joining in the 19th combined clubs’ Regatta, scheduled from 14th to 17th September.
We are truly delighted to have UBS AG Jersey, the leading provider of wealth management solutions in the Channel Islands, as our sponsor for the fifth year running. UBS’ enthusiasm and outstanding support is a key element in the ongoing popularity and success of this ‘flagship’ event.
For the 19th year in succession, we also extend warm thanks to Ports of Jersey and Jersey Marinas for providing the complimentary berthing and much other support that will help ensure that everyone has a great experience over what promises to be a very fulfilling three days. We are likewise grateful to Condor Ferries for offering discounted fares to those wishing to ship their boats to the Island for the Regatta. (Please contact Condor direct if this applies to you).
The Regatta is, primarily, a sailing community event intended to provide fun and excitement for all, old and young, experienced racers and novices alike. With a dazzling array of silverware and innumerable place prizes at stake, competition will certainly be keen in the cruiser/racer, sportsboat, dayboat, dinghy, sport catamaran and Kona OD windsurfer classes. Having introduced the windsurfer class last year, we are delighted that Kona entrants will be racing for the British Championship this year.
Once each day’s racing’s done, a lively shore-side social programme will allow all to enjoy the camaraderie and ever-warm welcome that awaits them in the Clubs. We especially look forward to welcoming our regular visitors from Guernsey, France and the UK and to meeting those joining us for the first time.
Indeed, should you be planning to join us from ‘abroad’, you will find a wealth of information on the Visit Jersey website (www.jersey.com) about the Island and what it has to offer in terms of accommodation, sightseeing, restaurants and night-life.
The Notice of Race, with full details of what is on offer, and the sailing instructions are available under the ‘Race Administration’ button. This is where we shall, also, be posting any amendments to those documents. Please note that the absolute closing date for entrants is Wednesday 6th September.
Should you require further information, please contact the Regatta Office, c/o St Helier YC, either by e-mailing email@example.com or by telephoning 00 44 (0) 1534 732229, who will be pleased to help.
On behalf of the combined clubs’ organising committee, I wish you fair winds and good sailing. We look forward to seeing you at the UBS Jersey Regatta.
