The annual regatta is exclusively for racing yachts of the J-Boats brand and all J-Boats models are eligible to compete. In 2012, the smallest boats taking part in the event were a fleet of J/80 Sportsboats, a number of which race regularly in the Port of Plymouth. The largest boat on the water was the J/133 which measures in at just over thirteen metres.
The event returns to Plymouth for the first time in six years, where the host club will again be the Royal Western Yacht Club. The Club did a superb job of ensuring the 2007 racing ran smoothly, and a team of over forty local volunteers and helpers were drafted in to guarantee a tremendous event for the four hundred plus sailors. Three days of racing are planned for 2013, with live music and entertainment for the competitors. The event culminates in a huge gala dinner and prize-giving ceremony on the final Saturday night. MDL Marinas and Royal Western Yacht Club are delighted to welcome the 2013 J-Cup back to Plymouth.
