Ullman Sails J/70 UK Nationals Preview

Ullman Sails J/70 regatta(Plymouth, England)- The J/70 UK Class Association is delighted that their 2016 Nationals will be hosted by the Royal Western Yacht Club in Plymouth, a popular venue amongst J/Boats sailors. The Commodore, Flag Officers and members are very enthusiastic about welcoming our visiting J/70 sailors to our beautiful sailing waters in the south west of England.

Racing will take place from Friday 2nd September to Sunday 4th September with a total of 11 races planned for the Championship. As long as weather conditions are suitable, sailing will be outside (south) of the Plymouth breakwater that is only a short sail from the RWYC and marina base.  The racing should be exciting, close and packed with action, with twenty boats currently registered from all over the UK.

Top teams include the Cowes Race Week winning team of Jack Davies on Team YETI.  Hoping to give them strong competition for top honors will be crews like Allan Higgs’ ESF ENERGY, Simon Cavey’s JUST 4PLAY, David McLeman’s OFFBEAT, Ian Wilson’s GILL RACE TEAM, Patrick Liardet’s COSMIC, Ripard/ Calascione’s HARLEQUIIN, and Clive Bush’s DARCEY.   For more Ullman Sails J/70 UK Nationals sailing information
