2016 JESS Tour
The Royal Freshwater Bay Yacht Club is immensely proud of the fact that it has maintained Huck Scott’s original concept and has now encouraged some 154 young boys and girls to experience travelling and competing internationally.
The JESS programme is a unique annual event, which offers young yachtsmen and women an opportunity to not only improve their skills as sailors but to develop their character and leadership qualities.
No worthwhile personal achievement comes without application and hard work. As a member of a JESS team it is no different. Participants must be prepared to make sacrifices and apply themselves to the prescribed training programmes, which, from experience, have proved essential. Those who do so will have participated in a venture that is not only very worthwhile but the memories will stay with them forever.
The JESS Experience is demanding on the sailors, clubs, parents and team leaders, but the rewards are rich.
The experience for the sailors is a “once in a life time” event.
This is the first time in the history of JESS an all 'girl' team has been put together. We are very proud to welcome the following sailors on board:
Holly Hunt | Sarah Hales | Sophie Townes | Farrah Corrigan | Kaiella Taylor | Laura Carmichael
