Royal Channel Islands Yacht Club Spring Regatta


The Royal Channel Islands Yacht Club is delighted to welcome Princess Yachts Channel Islands as the new sponsor of its annual Spring Regatta, scheduled to take place in St Aubin’s Bay on Saturday and Sunday, 25th and 26th April. As a major attraction in the Island’s sailing programme, the Regatta features two days of friendly though truly competitive sailing.

An open event, to which visiting boats are assured of a very warm welcome, the Regatta caters for sportsboat, cruiser/racer (both IRC and Jersey Island Handicap), dayboat, dinghy and sport-catamaran classes. This year sees the added attraction of RORC’s Rating Office’s Spinlock IRC Single Event Rating for both British and French sportsboats and cruiser/racers. This enables boats to race in an IRC class in the Regatta but at a lower cost than that of the full-blown Rating.(see

There is sure to be much action, across the board, with the Quarter Ton boats being particularly well-represented in the cruiser classes and with the Hobie Cat fleet out in force. Jersey is proud to boast one of, if not the, largest and most competitive Hobie Cat fleets in the British Isles. That coupled with strong support from St Catherine’s SC, in the dinghy classes, should ensure a lively weekend in the beautiful natural arena that is St Aubin’s Bay. Jersey’s NatWest Island Games candidates will, no doubt, be brushing up their skills in preparation for the challenges that await them. (The Games are being held in Jersey from 27th June to 3rd July).

As ever, each day’s racing is followed by social functions in the Clubhouse with the event coming to a close on the Sunday with the pesentation of overall winners’ trophies and place prizes.
