JOG goes into 2018 with a brand new website enabling existing members to renew their membership and new members to join the club online. Membership is just £20 for crew and £40 for owners – to see more and join up, go to

The new site also gives members and non-members online race entry for the 2018 programme shown below. New competitors (IRC rated) are especially welcome to join the competitive yet fun races – and of course our après-sail get-togethers.

As always we are grateful to our race sponsors currently including NJO Sails, C-Data Services, Osmotech UK and Dean & Reddyhoff.
