The Liberation regatta takes place this Monday 9th May and includes lunch at the club. BYOB + cakes for afternoon tea always appreciated!
The Vega pursuit race will start at 10:30, with a briefing at 9:45 to explain all, especially useful for those new to pursuit races. After the pursuit race there will be two open handicap races held back to back; first the Beagal then Liberation trophy. Then its in for a well deserved lunch around 2 pm, before the tide is the off the slip!
Did you know….
That the St. Catherine’s Liberation Day regatta has been held every year since the club started 66 years ago. The 3 races held on Liberation day are The Vega, The Beagle and The Liberation Day Trophy all with historic significance to the Liberation of the Channel Islands. First race of the day is the Vega named after the Red Cross Ship SS Vega that made several trips to Jersey with Red Cross parcels, then on 9th May 1945 HMS Beagle arrived at St. Helier harbour and later that day the island was liberated, hence the order of our races!
