J/80 UK Nationals Returns to Lymington for 2019 © Key Yachting

Following the success of the 2018 Championships, the J/80 UK Class Association is delighted that their 2019 Nationals will be hosted again by the Royal Lymington Yacht Club. Racing will take place from Saturday 24th August to Monday 26th August, with a total of nine races planned for the Championship. Registration will be available on Friday 23rd.

The Notice of Race and Entry Form are now available from the Club's website: rlymyc.org.uk/staging-area/OnTheWater/Racing/Race_Events/J80Nationals.aspx

The event is generously supported by North Sails, Seahorse Magazine, Harken, Nick Cox Chandlery, and Priory Wines.

The racing will take place in Christchurch Bay which is a great open water venue with minimal tidal influence. Courses will be laid by the Club's highly experienced race team. Races will be held in the more sheltered Western Solent in the event of inclement weather.

A discounted three-night berthing package has been arranged with Berthon Marina in the centre of picturesque Lymington and adjacent to Royal Lymington YC, and which is only a short sail to Christchurch Bay.

The fun social programme will be centred on the Royal Lymington's delightful riverside clubhouse, which has stunning views over the Lymington River and towards the Isle of Wight.

Lymington and the surrounding New Forest are popular tourist destinations, so early booking of accommodation for crews, supporters and families is recommended.
