Lymington, the home town of the biggest and most active J/80 fleet in the UK, will once again host the National Championship. Twenty J/80s are based there.

The Royal Lymington Yacht Club, which hosted the extremely successful 2016 and 2018 Championships, is the natural choice for the 2019 Nationals venue.

Demonstrating their proficiency and enthusiasm, the club has already appointed a Race Officer for the event and set about assembling an international-standard team.

The regatta will take place Saturday 24th – Monday 26th August, taking advantage of the bank holiday weekend.

Further details will be announced later on rlymyc.org.uk.
