Dartmouth Week is coordinated by the three sailing clubs on the River Dart in England: Dartmouth Yacht Club (DYC), Dittisham Sailing Club (DSC) and Royal Dart Yacht Club (RDYC), with all three clubs being represented on The Joint Regatta Sailing Committee (JRSC). Dartmouth Week 2014 began with dinghy racing from 23rd to 26th August within the River Dart. From the 28th to 31st August were four full days of racing, for all classes of yachts and keelboats, in Start Bay. The J/24s showed up en masse as a one-design class (within an IRC Class). The 24s produced an infamous winner in the form of John Gorman on ITALIAN JOB. He was followed by Hugh Conway’s JAXXXIVA in second and the trio of Savage/Rogers/Greenhalgh in third. The “Small Non-IRC Yacht Class” was just about crushed by all of the aforementioned J/24s. Three of the top five. For more Dartmouth Sailing Week sailing information, visit http://dartmouthweek.com/.
