Landsail Tyres J-Cup Announcement!

J/111 sailing JCup UK (Torquay, United Kingdom)- Key Yachting Ltd. and the Royal Torbay Yacht Club are thrilled to announce that entry is open for the Landsail Tyres J-Cup 2017 in Partnership with B&G Electronics!  The event takes place from the 17th to 19th of August, 2017.

Incorporating the National Championships for the J/88, J/97 and J/109, the J-Cup is quite simply three days of serious competition coupled with not-so-serious shoreside entertainment, with one design racing for almost everyone. If you have a J/Boat, you're invited!

The J-Cup returns to glorious Torbay for the first time since 2009. Gemma Dunn from Key Yachting commented, “When Torbay was announced as the 2017 venue, more teams pre-registered than ever before, demonstrating the love our sailors have for the West Country. The J-Cup falls in-between the Fastnet Race and the Torbay and Dartmouth regattas, so there’s potentially a full programme on offer before the return to work and school in September.”

J-Cup UK sailingUp to eight races will be sailed, with daily prize-givings and “themed” dinners every evening, and, of course, the notorious prize-giving party on the final night- with local favourites “Joey-The-Lips” providing the amazing, tub-thumping, slam-dancing, disco-madness soundtrack!

Bob Penfold, Commodore of the club said, “The club is looking forward to welcoming the J-Cup fleet to Torquay and to the fine sailing waters of Torbay.  Truly, the world's best sailing for our friends sailing on a variety of J/Boats in every class!”
