In support of its Hamble Point Marina tenant and regatta host Key Yachting, MDL Marinas has confirmed that it will once again be sponsoring the UK’s J-Cup Regatta for 2024.

Taking place from the Royal Southern Yacht Club in Hamble, Southampton, between 21 and 23 June, the annual multi-class regatta is organised exclusively for yachts from the J/Boats brand and comprises three days of high-octane racing around the Solent.

All J/Boat models are invited to compete and will feature one-design racing for three classes and IRC Racing classes for mixed fleets. The three-day regatta will incorporate both windward-leeward and round-the-cans racing. 

As part of its support for this popular event, MDL Marinas will be providing the popular J-Cup caps to every sailor taking part in the race.

“Once again, we are grateful to MDL for their unwavering support of the J-Cup Regatta,” says Bill Stringer, Key Yachting’s Commercial Director. “Their sponsorship not only helps elevate our event but also adds a crowd-pleasing gesture with the generous provision of the J-Cup caps for each sailor taking part. We couldn’t ask for a better partner, and we look forward to toasting to a fantastic regatta together.

“At Key Yachting, we pride ourselves on creating an unforgettable experience for sailors of all levels, where passion for the sport and camaraderie come together on the water.”

“The J-Cup Regatta is more than just a race; it’s a celebration of sailing excellence and community spirit. With its competitive yet friendly atmosphere, incredible coastal courses and top-notch organisation, it stands out as a premier event in the sailing calendar.” 

The J-Cup’s packed racing programme is coupled with daily prize giving and shoreside entertainment courtesy of the Royal Southern Yacht Club, with an evening party on Saturday 22 June. There will also be a Hambledon Vineyard drinks reception followed by a presentation of prizes to the overall event winners on Sunday 23 June.
