Entry Forms for the BNY Mellon Challenge can now be downloaded on the JOG website ( and confirmed entries are starting to come in for both Legs of this 1000 mile race from Cowes to Cascais, starting on 14 June.

Judging from the interest shown so far, JOG expect that over half the entries will be in the Double Handed classes, sponsored specifically by Hampshire based Clanfield Properties Ltd, illustrating the popularity of smaller yacht racing crews.

JOG have also initiated ISAF approved Sea Survival courses to be held in the Southampton area starting on 9/10 March and any enquiries for these, or any other aspect of the race, can be directed to the Race Director by e-mail:
