"The Key Yachting J-Cup is a celebration of the J/Boats family and offers extremely good value for a truly enjoyable and memorable occasion," commented Key Yachting's Wayne Palmer, who will also be racing his J/99 Jam one of three J/99s in the regatta. "The three-day regatta is a proper J/Boats get-together with sailors ranging from Olympic medallists to complete novices and everybody in between. With three national championships, the competition on the water will be at the highest level, but there is something for everybody at the J-Cup. We have families, veterans, and youth teams racing.
