JOG Week 2018 preliminary announcement - hold the dates!
Our race to Portland Marina is set for Saturday 21st July 2018 timed to start from Cowes with the new west-going tide.
On arrival at Portland, Dean & Reddyhoff are making around 30 visitor berths available free of charge to JOG competitors for Saturday night. Our thanks go to D&R’s Rachel Hibberd.
The marina was used as the base for the 2012 Olympic sailing events, so everything is pretty new and geared-up for sailors with excellent facilities.
D&R have expressed great enthusiasm for hosting us and will be welcoming us with pontoon party drinks or a bar tab at The Boat that Rocks pub/restaurant where we can hold the week’s launch do.
Then on Sunday 22nd July Race 1 will head off to Dartmouth where we will be basing the week’s racing in conjunction with the Royal Dart Yacht Club.
We are very grateful to Mike Webster and team at RDYC for partnering with JOG for the week.
Various options are available to provide a great week’s racing including day races run by RDYC and a passage race further west with return next day, perhaps one round the Eddystone.
Of course a social programme will happen culminating with the event prize-giving on Friday 26th July.
JOG Weeks are always great fun so watch this space for developments later in the year.
Reserve the dates and spread the word so we can make it a great week
of competitive racing and fun in the JOG tradition!
