We're pleased to confirm that J/Boats is arranging for several new J/111s to support the J/111 Worlds charter program. Additionally, there will be several privately owned boats available (a list to be published below) by direct arrangement with the owners.
We are anticipating high demand for boats and wish to accommodate J/111 owners from all of the national class associations (NCAs). Charter priority will be given to overseas teams with the initial allocation being one boat per NCA. Teams are encouraged to bring their own boats where possible, but all efforts will be made to find charter boats for all qualified overseas teams.
Boats will be provided with docking equipment (fenders & docklines), lifting straps, and all class required gear except what is noted below. The running rigging package includes one set of halyards, sheets and control lines and one winch handle. Competitors must bring their own sails, compass, GPS, VHF radio, lifejackets and any spares and personal effects.
Charter Term & Fee
The standard charter term is T.B.D. Charter rates may vary for privately owned boats depending on the charter period and delivery expenses.
Condition of Boat at Delivery & Return
New charter boats will be pre-measured, pre-rigged with masts up and in the water at the Worlds event piers upon check-in. Competitors will be responsible for completing sail measurement and registration. At the close of the regatta, competitors will be asked to redeliver the boats to a designated area at Sail Newport, unrig the boat (details to be confirmed), remove all tape, sponsor decals and markings, and clean the interior and exterior, before presenting the boat for check-out. No modifications to the boats are permitted without prior permission from J Boats, as all the boats are pre-sold to new owners.
A special insurance package is being organized for the new charter fleet and is required for all charters. The cost (to be confirmed) is in addition to the charter fee. The insurance provides damage coverage for the boat and third party liability coverage of $300,000. This policy will satisfy all of the competitor insurance requirements listed in the Notice of Regatta, such that no additional coverage or evidence of coverage is required.
