J/80 Nationals 2017 – Entry Open!

The Royal Southern Yacht Club in Hamble will host the 2017 J/80 Nationals from 16th-18th June, and entry for the event is now open. This is likely to be a hugely popular event, as it comes less than four weeks before the J/80 Worlds – also hosted by the Royal Southern – and two months before Cowes Week. So it’s an ideal opportunity to hone your skills and gain valuable race winning experience on the Solent.

The Race Committee aim to hold up to 9 races with a maximum of 2 discards, so if you aren’t available on the Friday you can still compete.

The entry fee of £150.00 includes:

– Crane for launching and lifting the boat
– Berth in Royal Southern’s Prince Philip Yacht Haven during the event
– Trailer storage during the event

Daily refreshments will be available post racing and the Prizegiving will be as soon as possible after racing on Sunday 18 June.

The organisers anticipate a healthy showing of prizes, including the J/80 Class Open National Championship Perpetual Trophy which will be awarded to the overall winner.
