J/80 sailing Lake GardaThree Regattas, Three Cool Sailing Venues!
(Marion, MA)- Here is a personal invitation from Deb Gayle, the Co-Chair of the J/80 North American Championship and the Rear Commodore of Beverly Yacht Club.

“We are hosting this year's J/80 North Americans at the Beverly Yacht Club (BYC) in Marion, Massachusetts from September 7th to 9th.  We are located in Buzzard's Bay, famous for its big breeze and competitive racing fleets.

J/80s sailing downwindOn behalf of the organizing committee, I would like to personally extend an invitation to J/Sailors to participate in this Championship event.  We have a very seasoned race committee and promise exceptional racing and sailing.  Beverly YC is extremely welcoming and the membership is looking forward to once again hosting the J/80 fleet.  In addition to great racing and wonderful camaraderie, we are offering housing to those coming from a distance (first come- first served).

I would also like to let you know about the J/80 “Triple Play,” a terrific opportunity for racing, with three great J/80 regattas being held all two weeks apart from one another:
  1. Aug 24-26- J/80 East Coast Championship- Boothbay, ME
  2. Sep 7-9- J/80 North American Championship- Marion, MA
  3. Sep 21-22- J-Jamboree Regatta- Lake Winnipesaukee, NH
These events present an awesome opportunity for spectacular J/80 sailing and competition within a reasonable drive of each other.  Boats competing in the East Coast Championships in Boothbay can drive directly to Marion, MA.  We will store your boats and give you an opportunity to race during the intervening two weeks prior to the North American Championships.  Then, you can head up to Lake Winnipesaukee for the J-Jamboree for fall sailing on the most scenic mountain lake in New Hampshire!

We look forward to hosting you at the J/80 North American Championship.”  Register here today.  Please feel free to contact me with any questions. Deb Gayle at email -   For more J/80 class information Add to Flipboard Magazine.
