Dear All,

Welcome to the 20th edition of the Jersey Regatta, a true milestone in the life of this ‘flagship’ event and one that is looming ever larger as time moves on.

Please note that this year sees the introduction of on-line entry and payment. The Notice of Race, links to the entry form and parental consent form and the Sailing Instructions are available under the ‘Race Administration’ tab. (The ‘early bird’ fee facility will close on Tuesday 14th August after which the standard entry fee will apply until 7th September, when entries close).

As an open event, the Regatta is designed to provide fun and keen competition for all, experienced sailors and novices alike. We, especially, look forward to welcoming the customary huge turnout of local boats and those of you joining us from the UK, Guernsey, France and further afield. A packed programme awaits you!

In this 20th anniversary year, we are proud to be hosting both:

  • the Spinlock IRC Channel Island Regional Championship for Class 1 & 2 cruiser/racers and
  • the British Kona One Championship

Proceedings get under way with a reception on the Thursday evening whilst the opening coastal/offshore race for the sportsboat, cruiser/racer and Quarter Ton classes follows on the Friday morning. The programme for the dayboat, dinghy, sport-catamaran and windsurfer classes gets under way in the beautiful arena of St Aubin’s Bay that afternoon. Following a busy time on the water, a lively programme ashore will provide everyone with plenty of opportunity to enjoy the social programme, camaraderie and ever-warm welcome that awaits them in the Clubs.

We are delighted that UBS AG Jersey, the Channel Islands’ leading provider of wealth management solutions, is with us for the sixth year running. Their enthusiasm and outstanding support is a highly-valued and key element in the ongoing success of this outstanding event.

Ports of Jersey, unstinting supporters from the very start, will again be providing complimentary berthing and much other assistance to help ensure that everyone has the best possible experience of the Regatta.

We are, also, delighted that Condor Ferries is on board offering discounted fares for those wishing to ship their boats to the Island for the event; this very kind offer includes boats on trailers, towing vehicles and passengers on all of their routes. If you wish to take this up, please contact us in the first instance.

Should you require further information, please e-mail info@jerseyregatta.com or by phone the Regatta Office (St Helier YC) on 00 44 (0) 1534 732229.

On behalf of the combined clubs’ organising committee and our sponsors, I wish you fair winds, calm seas and great sailing. We look forward to seeing you at the Regatta.
