Sailors that are considering or intending to take part in the combined clubs’ 15th Jersey Regatta, 13th to 15th September, will be interested to know that the Notice of Race has recently been published on the regatta website. This ‘flagship’ event in the Island’s packed sailing programme is sponsored by global financial services company UBS AG. Tom Hill, CEO of UBS Jersey, says that they are delighted to support this prestigious regatta.

Reporting on last year’s event, Regatta Chairman Bill Harris said that the organising committee’s aim is to at least match the excitement of last September’s record turnout when spectators were treated to the sight of well over a hundred boats racing off the south coast of the Island and in the picturesque confines of St Aubin’s Bay.

Accompanied by a busy social programme ashore and with three races back-to-back in most classes each day, the Regatta promises three days of fun and keen competitive racing for sportsboat, cruiser/racer, dayboat , sport-catamaran and dinghy classes. Whilst very much an Island sailing jamboree, organisers and local sailors alike are looking forward to providing an especially warm welcome to visitors from the sister islands, UK, France and even further afield.


Whilst the absolute cut-off date for entries is 10th September, entries received no later than 28th August are entitled to a discounted entry fee. With exception of the traditional Regatta party, sailors will find that the entry fee includes much in the way of hospitality.

September is a very busy tourism month and sailors requiring hotel or guest house accommodation are advised to book early. It is worth noting that the award-winning Jersey International Air Display is taking place over St Aubin’s Bay on the Thursday of Regatta week.

The Regatta is organised jointly by the Royal Channel Islands Yacht Club, St Helier Yacht Club and St Catherine’s Sailing Club. Prospective entrants seeking further information are invited to contact the Regatta office by phone 00 44 (0) 1534 73229 or by e-mail info@jerseyregatta.com Jersey Regatta website

What a start to 2017-18 Leg Zero has given us!
