2021 Pre-Registration for New Entries

Please only complete this form if you have not entered the Classic Channel Regatta before. If you have entered before, please complete our Previous Entrants form.

We welcome pre-registrations from owners of all eligible boats.

We have set a maximum limit of 100 boats due to space constraints in the ports and to maintain the friendly atmosphere of the regatta.

Based on the numbers we have had previously we may be oversubscribed in 2021, so:

  • We are provisionally limiting the number of boats in Class 1&2 (pre-1968) and Class 3&4 (1969-1974) to 50 boats in each.
  • Pre-registrations will be treated on a first come first served basis, but we will notify all previous entrants and offer them a last opportunity to pre-register for a confirmed place before the limit in either class is reached.
  • Once these limits have been reached, further pre-registrations will be put on a waiting list for places to become available.

You can pre-register at any time without commitment, so do it soon to secure a place in the regatta.

Boats are encouraged to enter for the whole regatta, but there will be registration facilities at St Helier and Paimpol for any boats wishing to join there.


  • We invite you to pre-register at this stage without any commitment. It allows us to keep you informed as plans develop between now and the regatta. Full entry forms are sent out in April 2021.
  • Boats must display a valid national or recognised class sail number. See Classes and Eligibility page for more information.
  • Please enter a number from 1800 to 2021.
  • Please enter a number from 1800 to 2021.
  • Please specify materials of fore and aft, upwind sails (eg Dacron). The body of all sails shall consist only of a woven cloth throughout, except that a laminated ply, where the ply fibres are Polyester or Pentex, is permitted, but will incur a penalty. Any materials substantially incorporating carbon or aramid fibres (such as Kevlar) and designed for racing will be put the boat into Class 4.
  • Please enter a number from 0 to 2.
  • Note 1 - Please supply the mobile number you will be using at the regatta as it may be used to notify race delays, etc
    Note 2 - The JC Classic Handicap, used for the 2011, 2013, 2015, 2017 and 2019 Classic Channel Regattas, will be used again in 2021. If you don't yet have a JC Classic Handicap, leave this field blank. There is no need to get one yet, but we will ask you to get one in due course. For more information on the JC Classic Handicap or to get your free handicap now please go to the Handicapping page.
