North Sails on board for 2020 J-Cup


The annual regatta exclusively for J Boats will head to Cowes in 2020. The 20th anniversary J-Cup will be hosted by the Royal Ocean Racing Club, with racing from Thursday 2 – Saturday 4 July.

North Sails’ technical and sailing experts will be on hand to provide free expert analysis and coaching to all participants at the 2020 J-Cup. Crews in any J Boat will be able to take advantage of North’s coaching.Crews can then follow this up with the coaches ashore or during the evening debriefs at the Royal Ocean Racing Club where on-the-water drone footage will be shown.

The North Sails Prizegivings, after racing on Thursday and Friday, will be a chance for any sailor from any class to enter a prize draw with a chance of winning clothing and merchandise.

Teams can expect up to nine races across the three days, with entertainment planned for the evenings. As is customary at the J-Cup the final prizegiving will give the organisers an excuse to throw the 400 or so competitors a fabulous party with live music, against the backdrop of the infectious atmosphere of Cowes.
