The third annual New England J/Fest Regatta is being hosted by Sail Newport the weekend of August 9-11th 2019. This is the third New England J/Fest Regatta limited exclusively to J/Boat owners and crews with racing and social events scheduled throughout the weekend.

This event capitalizes on the very successful 2017 event and similar successful J/Fest Regattas held in other US regions where participation exceeded seventy boats. Event organizers anticipate more than seventy boats at the starting line for the 2019 New England J/Fest. Expected one-design classes include J/22, J/24, J/30, J/70, J/80, J/88, J/105, J/109, J/121. The 2019 event will also include a class for J/Cruisers.

Narragansett Bay is considered a special "home waters" venue for the New England J/Fest as many of the sailboats were locally built in Rhode Island. Once again, Sail Newport has been selected to host the 2019 J/Fest Regatta. Sail Newport has an active racing program that includes a fleet of club owned J/22's and counts numerous J/Boat owners as many of their most active members. Sail Newport is a State of Rhode Island resource that provides strong support for sailing and has the facilities to successfully host an event of this caliber. The shore side activities for the 2019 J/Fest will be held at the Sail Newport gorgeous new facilities located at Fort Adams.

J/Fest Registration is currently open.

Information regarding the regatta including logistics, mooring availability, social event signup and hotel accommodations are all located on the J/Fest New England regatta website.
