20 April 2018
Junior Offshore Group (JOG) Week is a renowned community-driven, yacht racing and social event held every four years. It' s an excellent opportunity for newcomers to become involved and experience the thrill of yacht racing.
JOG also attracts small boats to big races and the Royal Dart Yacht Club are distinguished for running outstanding sailing regattas and providing a warm welcome. This year, JOG Week is hosted in beautiful Dartmouth by the Royal Dart Yacht Club (RDYC).
Our attitude is to capture and combine serious seamanship with a chivalrous but competitive edge and lots of joie de vivre. JOG and RDYC will be running feeder races to Portland on 21 July 2018 ahead of the actual JOG Week starting from Portland on 22 July and ending in Dartmouth on 27 July.
An enjoyable week of racing is promised with a great social calendar already in place.
Plymouth Yacht Haven looks forward to welcoming the JOG Week sailors on 24 July following their race from Dartmout to Portland, via Eddystone.
