Liberation Regatta


annual regatta

The Liberation regatta takes place this Wednesday 9th May and includes lunch at the club. The Vega pursuit race will start at 10:00. All sailors and family are welcome, BYO beer & wine if you wish.

After lunch, two more races will be held back to back; first the Beagle then the Liberation trophy.

Did you know….
That the St. Catherine’s Liberation Day regatta has been held every year since the club started 65 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!
