J/80 National Championships 2016

Saturday 27th, Sunday 28th & Monday 29th August




 
 
The J/80 UK Class Association is delighted that their 2016 Nationals will be hosted by the Royal Lymington Yacht Club. The racing will take place in Christchurch Bay which is a great open water venue with minimal tidal influence. Courses will be laid by the highly experienced race team in the Bay with the option to race in the more sheltered Western Solent in the event of inclement weather.

The Club is very enthusiastic about welcoming visiting J/80 sailors to join its newly expanded J80 fleet for some great racing.
 
Racing will take place from Saturday 27th August to Monday 29th August, with a total of 10 races planned for the Championship.
 
The fun social programme will be centred on the Royal Lymington Yacht Club’s delightful riverside clubhouse which has stunning views over the Lymington River and towards the Isle of Wight.
 
Registration will be available from Friday afternoon. A discounted three-night berthing package has been arranged with Berthon Marina in the centre of picturesque Lymington and adjacent to RLymYC, and which is only a short sail to Christchurch Bay.

Lymington and the surrounding New Forest are popular tourist destinations, so early booking of accommodation for crews, supporters and families is recommended.
