to the Carey Olsen Jersey Regatta, 10th – 12th September 2021… et soyez bienvenus  nos amis français!

Carey Olsen Jersey Regatta – Web Page update – 30th March 2021 

Dear All 

Welcome to the 23rd edition of the combined clubs’ Jersey Regatta generously sponsored for the second year running by leading offshore law firm Carey Olsen. The company’s enthusiasm and keen support is a key element in the continuing popularity and success of this ‘flagship’ sailing jamboree.  

Scheduled to run from 10th to 12th September, the Regatta is an open event for local and visiting boats alikeVery sadly, last year’s Covid-19 restrictions in the UK, France and the Channel Islands meant that our sailors had the Regatta all to themselves. We certainly missed the bonhomie and keen competition that our visitors have provided in less troubled times. Let us hope for better things this year. Notwithstanding their absence and the obligatory abandonment of the social programme, nearly 100 boats turned out to provide some spectacular racing over the three days.  

Following a well-established format, the Regatta is designed to provide three days of fun and competitive racing over ‘round the cans’ courses within the beautiful confines of St Aubin’s Bay and in the Island’s coastal waters. There are classes to suit a wide range of tastes – IRC and NHC cruiser/racer, sportsboat, quarter ton, dayboat, dinghy, sport catamaran and windsurfer. Running concurrently within the Regatta, on Saturday and Sunday, RORC’s 8th IRC CI Championship is likely to be the top attraction for the IRC-rated cruiser classes.  

Covid permitting, we also look forward to running a lively social programme which includes receptions on the Thursday and Friday, the Regatta Party on Saturday and a bumper prize-giving on Sunday. There are rewards galore with trophies and place prizes in all classes on all three days, topped off by overall Best-in-Class prizes.  

The entry fees are, undoubtedly, modest and cover not only the race entry fee but, additionally, include attendance at all social events bar the Regatta Party for which tickets are sold separately.  

We are, as ever, truly grateful to Jersey Marinas who will be providing complimentary berthing in the week leading to the Regatta. Jersey Marinas has very kindly supported the Regatta since the very first edition in 1999. 

We are now open for entries! The Notice of Race is available through the ‘RACE ADMINISTRATION’ box at the top of this page whilst ‘ENTER HERE’ will take you to the entry form.   

Should you need further information, please contact the Regatta Office by e-mail at info@jerseyregatta.com or phone + 44 (0)1534 732229. We look forward to hearing from you. 

Fair winds and very best wishes from Carey Olsen and the Jersey Regatta team.
