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




Dear All

Welcome! This year we have more to celebrate than usual, our 20 th Anniversary, a really exciting
milestone in the life of this great event!

Scheduled from 14 th to 16 th September, the combined clubs’ Jersey Regatta is an open event designed to
provide fun and keen competition for all, experienced sailors and debutants alike. A full programme of
racing in the beautiful arena of St Aubin’s Bay and the Island’s coastal waters for cruiser, quarter ton,
sportsboat, dayboat, dinghy, sport-catamaran and windsurfer classes will be accompanied by a lively
programme ashore enabling all to enjoy the camaraderie and ever-warm welcome that awaits them in the

Of special note, the IRC Channel Island Regional Championship for the cruiser/racer classes will run
within the overall programme and will be of particular interest not only to our local skippers but also to
those joining us from Guernsey, France and the UK.

We are delighted that UBS AG Jersey, the leading provider of wealth management solutions in the
Channel Islands, is in the sponsor’s seat for the sixth year running and with us in this special year. Their
enthusiasm and outstanding support is a key element in the continuing popularity and success of this
‘flagship’ event, the undoubted star of the Island’s sailing programme.

Ports of Jersey, with us from the very start, will again be providing complimentary berthing and such other
assistance as is needed to help ensure that everyone has the best possible experience of the Regatta.
Condor Ferries is also on board, very kindly offering discounted rates to those wishing to ship boats to the
Island for the event. We thank them all for their fantastic support.

Those of you coming from ‘abroad’ will find a wealth of information about accommodation, sightseeing,
restaurants and night-life on the Visit Jersey website, www.jersey.com.
