The Key Yachting J-Cup is the largest meeting of J/Boats in Northern Europe, 52 teams have already entered with over 300 sailors taking part.

At least 12 examples of the J/Boats range will be in action, including National Championships for the J/70, J/111 and J/109 Classes. Mixed J/Boats will race under the IRC Rating Rule divided into several classes.

The organising authority is the world renowned Royal Ocean Racing Club. All competitors are invited to the RORC Cowes Clubhouse for the duration of the regatta.

"The Key Yachting J-Cup is a celebration of the J/Boats family and offers extremely good value for a truly enjoyable and memorable occasion," commented Key Yachting's Wayne Palmer, who will also be racing his J/99 Jam one of three J/99s in the regatta. "The three-day regatta is a proper J/Boats get-together with sailors ranging from Olympic medallists to complete novices and everybody in between. With three national championships, the competition on the water will be at the highest level, but there is something for everybody at the J-Cup. We have families, veterans, and youth teams racing. A big part of the regatta is getting together after racing, Key Yachting have daily prize-givings and great parties every day at the impressive RORC Clubhouse in Cowes."

Title sponsor B&G have supported the regatta for many years and will be providing big-ticket, hi-tech electronics as prizes. The regatta features a bevy of supporters delivering superb prizes including Cyclops Marine, Wight Vodka, Salcombe Gin, Fastnet Insurance, Grapefruit Graphics, Hambledon Vineyard, XV Stripes, Ocean Rope, Dolphin Covers, and Henri Lloyd. North Sails have also continued their generous support for the regatta, once again offering on the water coaching, drone footage, and an overnight sail repair service, as well as North Sails merchandise.
