J/80 and J/70 inaugural UK National Championships entries now open
Mon, 7 Jan 2013
Entries for the J/80 and the inaugural J/70 UK National Championships, hosted by the Royal Yacht Squadron in Cowes, are now open. Registration will commence on Thursday 13th June, with racing from Friday 14th June to Sunday 16th June. The overall prizegiving will take place after the final race on Sunday.
The entry fee is £200 or £250 with berthing. To assist our owners and to help us with our planning, it is possible to pay a deposit of just £20 or £25 with berthing at this stage.
As the championships will fall on the same weekend as Isle of Wight Festival, we are advising our customers to book their accommodation as soon as possible, and to transport crew to the island via their J/70 or J/80 as opposed to the ferries, which can become very stacked up during this period.
To enter the UK National Championships and to view the Notice of Race, please visit the dedicated event website.
