Waller-Harris Two-handed Triangle Race - Action starts September 6th    
Thu, 21 Aug 2014

The Royal Channel Islands Yacht Club's 19th Waller-Harris Two-handed Triangle Race, a major highlight in the Jersey's racing programme takes place from sixth-8th September. This event has a very strong following due to its perfect mix of competitive sailing and warm social atmosphere. Boats carry a skipper and just one crew member.

Following a briefing in the RCIYC the night before, boats set off on the first leg, from Jersey to Granville at 10.30 a.m. on Saturday 6th September. Crews dine in Granville in the evening then set sail for St Cast-le-Guildo bright and early on the Sunday morning. Crews assemble for dinner in St Cast, following the race, and leave on the Monday morning on the leg back to Jersey. In all, boats will have sailed about 120 miles in the three days.

There are prizes for each leg of the Triangle with the overall winners being awarded the Waller-Harris Skipper's and Crew's trophies. Last year, Dan Le Marquand and Lloyd Evans sailing the J35, Jabot, won class one whilst Vince Smith and Bruce Henstridge sailing the Oceanis 37, Sula Bassana, won class two.

The event is open to all-comers with the Notice of Race and entry form available in the yacht clubs and here. The closing date for entries is Tuesday 2nd September.
