J/80 UK Nationals Announcement!

J/80s sailing off United Kingdom/ England/ Great Britain (Lymington, England)- The J/80 UK Class Association is delighted their 2016 Nationals will be hosted by the Royal Lymington Yacht Club. The racing will take place in Christchurch Bay, which is a great open water venue with minimal tidal influence. Courses will be laid by the highly experienced race team in the Bay with the option to race in the more sheltered Western Solent in the event of inclement weather. The Club is very enthusiastic about welcoming visiting J/80 sailors to join its newly expanded J/80 fleet for some great racing.

Racing will take place from Saturday 27th August to Bank Holiday Monday 29th August, with a total of 10 races planned for the Championship.

The fun social programme will be centered on the Royal Lymington Yacht Club’s delightful riverside clubhouse that has stunning views over the Lymington River and towards the Isle of Wight. A discounted three-night berthing package has been arranged with Berthon Marina in the center of picturesque Lymington and adjacent to RLymYC, and which is only a short sail to Christchurch Bay.

Lymington and the surrounding New Forest are popular tourist destinations, so early booking of accommodation for crews, supporters and families is recommended.  For more J/80 UK Nationals registration and sailing information
