The final day’s racing at the Landsail Tyres J-Cup was blessed with champagne conditions for the 50 teams at the annual J/Boats regatta in the UK, which has been run since 2000. The three-day regatta (24-26 June) provides one-design Classes and mixed Classes with highly competitive racing, but the J-Cup is more than a regatta. It is a family gathering that has been part of the history of J/Boats for 22 years. After a sit-down plated gala dinner at the Royal Southern Yacht Club, with Brighton cover band Joyride providing live entertainment, the final prize-giving was held in the airy Marquee on The Quarter Deck. Key Yachting’s Wayne Palmer and Hannah Le Prevost welcomed the sailors and awarded the prizes to the winning teams. Congratulations to Paul Ward’s J/70 Eat Sleep J Repeat who bested 19 other teams over eight races with 12 points. Nick Phillips’ Chaotic took the runner-up position with 20 points, three ahead of Martin Dent’s Jelvis in third. Results Link: For the full wrap-up including quotes from all the winners
