In the light of recent UK Government announcements, it has become clear that the 2020 Landsail Tyres J-Cup will be postponed and not take place in July.

The new date, confirmed by an amendment to the Notice of Race, will be 3-5 September 2020.

Whilst the current measures on social distancing have been eased, they are still in place. However, by early September, the UK Government may allow competitive sports for fully crewed yacht racing, which would allow the Landsail Tyres J-Cup to take place.

Key Yachting will continue to monitor the Government announcements and will keep the J Boat community updated with any relevant developments.
