Plans for the social events during the event are progressing well and details about the programme and how to order tickets will be announced shortly.

The Club’s J/80 Class Captain, Jim White, said, “the J/80 is Lymington’s newest class and growing rapidly, attracting National and European Champions and former Olympians. There are currently 12 J/80s in Lymington, with two more due to arrive and several potential owners trying to buy. It looks set to be a fantastic year of racing in Lymington.”  Sailing photo credit- Rick Tomlinson.  For further information, please contact the club events manager, Kirsty Timmis -
