The Jester Azores Challenge is a new single-handed trans-atlantic event for boats 20-30 ft from Plymouth to Azores, Tierciera Island, Praia Da Victoria.
One of the aims of The Jester Challenge is to conduct a modern experiment in old-fashioned self-reliance, self-sufficiency and personal responsibility and, in doing so, The Jester Challenge has attracted a quorum of, in the main, hugely experienced, small-yacht, ocean voyagers. A second aim is to provide an intermediate voyage experience opportunity to prepare the 2010 cross atlantic Jester Challenge. A third aim is to give genuine Corinthians the opportunity to sail in company across the Atlantic without having to pay entrance fees that are better spent on their yachts.
The second JAC will be held in 2012.
42 skippers sailed from Plymouth on Mai the 31th.
