JOG 1 day Race to Poole

Venue: Cowes

Price from: £300 per person

Duration: 2 Days

A perfect race for September.  Just 48 miles but out via the south of the Island this time and returning probably via the Needles so its highly likely you will get all the way round the island completing this event - over the 2 days. Stay overnight with the rest of the friendly sailors in this lovely group.

The JOG scene is always popular with a great fleet of boats and a friendly atmosphere and this is the penultimate race of the 2016 series so is going to be really well attended.

You can also brush up on some navigation entering Poole harbour as well as enjoy a social evening with the other crews ashore.

Starts: 19:30 Friday Girls for Sail office at Shepards Wharf Marina 

Finishes: Ends Sunday 4pm

About The Event

Another classic JOG event, short enough for a weekend but you will feel like you've away for a week!  Great race down past St Catherines Point and WNW across to Poole harbour.   Then (tide permitting) a run back home through the Needles and up the Solent.   Many of you will be doing a portfolio of JOG races and they certainly are social events as well as hard racing.  

So if you want to be in on some fun racing get a place on this event soon as places will get snaffled!! 

 

 

 

 

The boat

We mostly coach on yachts of between 37 and 41ft. Our yachts have been specifically chosen as they are easy to handle, great for learning! There is no denying us girls sometimes don't have the physical strength of the boys but with our technical ability and a well-chosen yacht we can do just as well. You will usually find yourself aboard an Élan 37, Jeanneau 37 or a Beneteau 40.7. All of your time will be spent living as crew-mates on your yacht.  Most of the yachts have 9/10 berths with 3 cabins and a saloon so the boats will normally have 2 persons in each cabin i.e. 6 - this is always the case for an RYA course, MAX 6 persons on-board. On some events e.g. races we use the saloon which can sleep an additional 2-4 person. 

About Cowes 

Cowes is widely credited as being the birthplace of UK yachting, seeing hundreds of 'yachties' descend every year on the seaside town and swelling its resident population multifold!

With a wealth of activities on and off the water and a year-round mild, sunny climate the island attracts loyal visitors and second home owners alike all year round but especially during the spring and summer months when the world class sailing conditions attract professional sailors from around the world to take part in famous regattas and races - as well as thousands of spectators who gather shoreside to watch the dramas unfold.

Easily reached by high speed passenger ferry, car ferry or even hovercraft (the island has the last remaining hovercraft service in the world) from Lymington, Southampton or Portsmouth on the mainland, the island is the perfect destination for young and old alike with plenty to see, eat and do.
