The 2021 Class Gathering

The 2021 J/109 Gathering takes place on 2nd October.

Time to line up your crew, and book your spot for the training day on the water and your table for the dinner at the Royal Southern.

We’re hoping to gather as many UK J/109s as possible to a day of coaching and learning on the water with One Sails’ crack team, and an evening of dinner, meeting up and reviewing the last couple of years at the Royal Southern. We’ll do a prize- giving for the 2020 season.

Please send an email to if you’re planning on joining us on the water, and let me know how many tables (4 people/table) you’d like to book that evening.
Prices are:
£15 per boat for the training day
£100 per table of 4 for dinner
£25 per additional dinner guest

Look forward to seeing you there!
