J24 Regatta Sponsored by Noss Marina

Successful J24 regatta despite lack of wind on Saturday.

River 1 Windward Mark


Despite Junior Sailing enjoying a nice F2-3 in the river, the J24 fleet was held in Noss Marina while the Race Officer tried to find some wind to race in at sea. After two postponements racing at sea was abandoned and an informal series of two river races was arranged to keep our visitors entertained until the start of the evening programme. Local knowledge helped the two local boats to 2nd and 3rd, but the series was won by Dave Cooper from Saltash in Jawbreaker.

When the Mark Layer team came to retrieve the leeward mark, they found its anchor was tangled in an ancient lobster pot string. After much heaving, and help from a Harbour Launch, the anchor was recovered and a lobster as a reward!


All change on Sunday with a brisk easterly wind against tide kicking up a nasty chop. The Committee Boat and Mark Layer teams were heroes to put up with the conditions and provide 3 good races. Racing was very close and, as it was one design racing, mistakes were severely punished . Local boat Jiggy dropped from 2nd place to 8th after one particularly disastrous leg.

Final results were:

1. Cacoon, Dave Hale, Poole YC

2. Jiggy, Mike Mackie & Roger Nuttall, RDYC

3. Danjerous When Wet, Mark Lewers, RWYC

Full results are here.

Our thanks to:

The Race Officer Steve Pocock and his team: Rosemary, Gareth and Alison.

The Mark Layer team: Michael and John.
