Carey Olsen Jersey Regatta update – 24th  September 2021 

Dear All 

Well, there goes the 23rd combined clubs’ Jersey Regatta. Well done and thank you to everyone who participated in any way whether it was as a competitor, member of the race committee, committee boat provider, RIB crew, administrator, shore-side helper or caterer, you all contributed hugely to the success of yet another super Regatta.  

Following last year’s Covid hiatus, we were delighted to see boats from Guernsey and France racing with us, once again. A special vote of thanks to them for joining us and well done for some excellent results! Visitors mean a lot. 

Over ninety boats raced over the three days with nearly all classes being well represented. The weather was reasonably kind, other than being the cause of a substantial delay on Sunday morning when the wind had a lie-in. Hearty congratulations to everyone who won trophies and prizes, especially those who achieved ‘Best in Class’ status and, of course, Killing Time for clinching the 8th GBR IRC CI Class 1 Championship.  

A huge vote of thanks goes to Carey Olsen for their generosity and enthusiasm throughout the firm’s second year in the sponsor’s seat. It is, indeed, a privilege to have them on board and a delight to know that next year’s Regatta will also sail under the Carey Olsen banner. 

Thankyou, too, to Ports of Jersey and Jersey Marinas who have very kindly supported the Regatta since its birth in 1999.  The provision of complimentary berthing and assistance helps so much with the organisation of the event and ‘customer’ satisfaction, in general. We are, also, very grateful to the Department for Infrastructure for accommodating the dinghy fleet in the car park adjacent to the RCIYC.  

Finally, a note for your diary, you are cordially invited to join us for the 24th edition of this ‘flagship’ event that will run from 1st – 4th September 2022. We look forward to your company! 

Should you require further information, please contact the Regatta Office, c/o St Helier YC, either by e-mail: info@jerseyregatta.com or by telephone + 44 (0) 1534 732229.  


Fair winds and good sailing 

Bill Harris (Chairman) 24h September 2021
