In a new initiative to build on the success of the J/111 2018 Worlds in Breskens, Netherlands, the North European J/111 Fleet has organised a Series competition for 2019. J/111 boats and crews will be competing for the new Paul Heys trophy, awarded to the overall points winner over the six scheduled regattas, which include:

Vice Admirals Cup - 10, 11, 12 May
Royal Southern Regatta - 18, 19 May
Royal Southern Regatta - 15, 16 June
Royal Southern Regatta - 13, 14 July
J Cup - 18, 19, 20 July
Royal Southern Regatta - 14, 15 September
There will also be a regatta in Breskens, Netherlands. Races are predominantly windward/leeward, with some round-the-cans. Ten boats from the UK, Netherlands, Germany and Switzerland are signed up for the Series, so exciting, close, international Class racing is guaranteed. All J/111s are welcome to join the Series and race in any or all of the regattas.

The Series has been sponsored by Sweeney (NED8337). Owner Hans Zwijnenburg’s generous contribution in his words is to ‘Promote one design racing in our J/111 Class.’
