2022 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 – you can pre-register at any time without commitment or paying anything at this stage. If you have any queries about the eligibility of your boat, please contact eligibility@classic-channel-regatta.eu .

We have a maximum limit of 100 boats (50 in each of classes 1&2 and classes 3&4) at the Classic Channel Regatta owing 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 2022, so it pays to pre-register early to secure a place.

If and when the class limits have been reached further pre-registrations will be put on a waiting list for places to become available at the time entries need to be confirmed in May. We will confirm the status of your pre-registration soon after receiving it.

Boats are encouraged to enter the whole regatta, but you may pre-register and enter just the sectors shown on the form below as you wish.

The Classic Channel Regatta forms the first week of the Grande Régate Classique Manche Atlantique.

For the second week of the Grande Régate Classique Manche Atlantique we are also collecting pre-registrations for the Coupe Armorique race from Paimpol to Camaret (July 17 – 19) and the Coupe des Deux Phares race from Camaret to La Rochelle (July 20 – 24). This information will be passed on to the Yacht Club Classique to process.


  1. Please supply the mobile number you will be using at the regatta as it may be used to notify race delays, etc.
  2. The JCH classic handicap will be used again in 2022. If you don’t yet have a JCH 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 JCH Classic Handicap or to get your free handicap online now, please go to the Handicapping page.


By completing this pre-registration form you are confirming that you are happy for us to hold your information and that you wish to continue receiving emails from us.

We will hold your full contact details and information about your boat in our Regatta Management Database and in our Mailchimp lists, stored on servers outside of the UK (in USA and Canada).

We are committed to behaving responsibly and will only send you emails that tell you about the Classic Channel Regatta and other regattas you may be interested in. We will not pass your details to third parties, other than the Royal Dart Yacht Club and the Yacht Club Classique in connection with running associated regattas and races.
