Offshore Sailing



RNSA has a well established reputation for offshore racing, running its own J109 racing yacht ‘Jolly Jack Tar’ , whilst also supporting the entry of Establishment, MOD and RNRMC yachts in major offshore events. The various RNSA Branches also organise local racing on weekday evenings and some weekends and members are encouraged to participate as either owners or crew.
