The final day's racing at the Landsail Tyres J-Cup was blessed with champagne conditions for the 50 teams at the annual J/Boats regatta in the UK, which has been run since 2000.

The three day regatta (24-26 June) provides one design classes and mixed classes with highly competitive racing, but the J-Cup is more than a regatta. It is a family gathering that has been part of the history of J/Boats for 22 years.

Congratulations to Day Three race winners. Robin Stevenson J/92s Upstart, Becky Walford's J/92 Brenda's J, Jonnie Goodwin's J/70 RYS, Paul Ward's J/70 Eat Sleep J Repeat, Nick Phillips J/70 Chaotic, Charles Thompson's J/70 Brutus II, Michael and Sarah Wallis' J/122E Jahmali, David Richards' J/109 Jumping Jellyfish, Neil MacLachlan's J/109 Jai Ho, Tony and Sally Mack's J/111 McFly and Chris Jones & Louise Makin's J/111 Journeymaker II.

After a sit down plated gala dinner at the Royal Southern Yacht Club, with Brighton cover band Joyride providing live entertainment. The Final Prize Giving was held in the airy Marquee on The Quarter Deck. Key Yachting's Wayne Palmer and Hannah Le Prevost welcomed the sailors and awarded the prizes to the winning teams.

In IRC One, Michael and Sarah Wallis' J/122E Jahmali won all three races on the final day to win the class. Johnny Cooper's J/112E Jooped had been leading the regatta for two days but finished the regatta in second. Mark Stevens' J/105 Jacana finished third in class, just two points ahead of Vernon Bradley's J/99 BlackJack.

Michael and Sarah Wallis Jahmali is a previous winner of the J-Cup with their J/109 in 2014. The couple have been long friends of the founders of Key Yachting, Paul and Marie Claude Heys. Jahmali's stunning 2021 performance in their J/122E, was the lowest points score of any team, and coupled with their spirit, Jahmali was awarded the J-Cup. Michael Wallis, full of emotion, spoke at the Prize Giving.

"Thank you to everybody who sailed in this event and everybody who has organised it. We were honoured to have Marie Claude Heys sailing with us, and we were honoured to sail around the Paul Heys Buoy twice today in his memory. So, here's to the big man - thank you."
