to the Carey Olsen 26th Jersey Regatta, 13th – 15th September 2024

Carey Olsen Jersey Regatta Web Page update – 4th January 2024

Dear All

With fond memories of last September’s Silver Anniversary of the Carey Olsen Jersey Regatta ever fresh in our minds, we are pleased to be back on the starting blocks for the Island’s ‘flagship’ Regatta, the 26th edition scheduled for Friday 13th to Sunday 15th September. This is, as ever, an open regatta for local and visiting boats, alike, with a very warm welcome in store for all who will be joining us from the Channel Islands and beyond.

The Regatta gets underway on the Thursday evening with a reception followed by three days of fun and competitive racing for all classes. The racing schedule will follow the established format of three days’ racing for cruiser/racer, sportsboat, Quarter Ton, dayboat, dinghy and sport catamaran classes accompanied, each evening, by a lively programme hosted in the clubs.  Racing takes place over courses laid in the beautiful confines of St Aubin’s Bay, including coastal waters in case of the cruiser classes, under the auspices of independent race committees managing the cruiser and ‘small boat’ fleets.

The Notice of Race, soon to be published on www.jerseyregatta.com, will provide entry details and explain all that is on offer.

Now in its 11th year, we are proud that the GBR IRC Channel Islands Championship, open to all boats with a valid IRC Rating (www.rorcrating.com), continues to be the major feature in the IRC cruiser/racer programme. (Cruiser/racers without an IRC rating will race with RYA YTC ratings. (See http://swytc.org.uk )).

As we look forward to another exciting year, it gives me great pleasure to thank offshore law firm Carey Olsen (www.careyolsen.com), now in their fifth year in the sponsor’s seat, for their generous and keen support. We are most grateful, also, to Ports of Jersey (www.ports.je/jerseymarinas/ ) for providing complimentary berthing and the invaluable support provided through Jersey Marinas.

If you are joining us from abroad, we recommend that you take a look at www.jersey.com for information concerning accommodation, restaurants, nightlife and all that Jersey has to offer.

Should you need advance information, please contact the Regatta Office through info@jerseyregatta.com  or call ++ (0)1534 732229. We will be delighted to hear from you and pleased to help.

On behalf of our sponsors and the combined clubs’ organising committee, I wish you all a very happy, peaceful healthy and prosperous New Year.

Fair Winds
