Liberation Day Regatta – Amendment to Race Start Times

Due to tidal considerations races will be held back to back with the start time of the Beagle Open Handicap Race commencing as soon as possible after the finish of the Vega Pursuit Race and the Liberation Race likewise commencing as soon as possible after the finish of the Beagle Open Handicap Race.  An amendment to the Sailing Instructions detailing this change has been posted under General Sailing Information on the club website.

Lunch will be served after racing has finished for the day.


Liberation Day Regatta

The Liberation Day regatta takes place on Thursday, 9th May.  The Vega pursuit race starts at 10:00, so please arrive at 9am.  And then the sailors will come ashore for lunch.

The House committee will be serving a lunch of Chicken kebabs, Vegetarian quiche, New Potatoes and House Salads, along with Apple tart and Ice cream.

£5 for Adults, £3 for Juniors.

Please sign up in advance at Liberation Regatta  to help our catering, but of course all welcome on the day!

All donations of cakes and salads as always gratefully received.

After lunch, two more open handicap races will be held back to back.  First the Beagle, then the Liberation race.

We only run two pursuit races during the year and they are great fun, it may seem complicated at first but once you have started it is just great fun, please ask us at the club to explain the start sequence if you are unsure.

 POSTPONED to a later date

St Helier walk on Sunday 24th February 2019. All ages welcome! Pre booking required…

Join us for a town tour with a twist between 1400 and 1700 on Sunday 24th Feb!

Guided by Blue Badge guides we will start in West’s Centre where we will split into two groups for a fascinating tour of St Helier.

Each team will take a different route around the town with their guide.

We’ll then meet up just over an hour later in the Royal Square, for refreshments and for a quick tale of the Battle of Jersey.

The groups would then split up into separate teams, armed with a scavenger hunt type questionnaire, and spend 30 minutes or so hunting down their answers, and taking some fun photographs for bonus points.

At a designated time the teams all gather in the Royal Square for paper marking and presentation of a winners “trophy”.

YOU MUST PRE BOOK YOUR PLACES by clicking here  . There is a very small fee of £3.50 per head to cover the professional guides fees and any surplus will be donated to our club charities. Non members are welcome to join but if possible please pay for them before the walk as a hosting member.

For more information please contact Nick Queree
