If you have a J/Boat, you're invited!  If you are thinking of a “J”, you’re invited!  If you want to sail a “J”, you’re invited!

J/109s sailing J/CUP United KingdomBack at the Royal Southern in Hamble for 2016, racing will take place from Thursday 9th- Saturday 11th June. It will be the first time the J-Cup has taken place at its ‘home’ venue since the club unveiled their fabulous new Prince Philip Yacht Haven, which will accommodate most of the travelling fleet.

The programme includes up to eight races in the Solent, with daily prize-givings and themed suppers every evening, snacks on the pier after racing and, of course, the notorious prize-giving party on the final night, with local favorites “Groove Instinct” (a massively popular rock band in the U.K.) providing the soundtrack.
