The Portal Company JOG Week in association with Royal Dart Yacht Club.

The Portal Company, a leading Microsoft partner for business system integrated web portals will be the headline sponsor JOG Week 2018 in association with Royal Dart Yacht Club.

JOG is a highly respected yacht club with a difference. Established in 1950 to allow smaller yachts to compete offshore, it organises highly competitive races for IRC rated yachts.

JOG runs a full programme every season grouped into an inshore and offshore series. Competitors enjoy a high standard of racing and a similarly high level of camaraderie at the parties which take place at the end of almost every race in a host port.

JOG Week is run every 4 years and attracts competitive boats and crews with a full race and social program for the week, this year based in Dartmouth.

As well as sponsorship, The Portal Company will provide digital marketing support and a portal for live race results, news and social updates for the event.

Phil Catterall, director of The Portal Company, said:

“JOG is a forward-thinking yacht club that has a history of great racing and hospitality. This unique balance is unrivalled in the UK and jog has a tremendous ethos of encouraging young sailors to the sport. Jog is an organisation well aligned to our organisational values and we are very honoured to be in a position to support them at this exciting 4 yearly event with Royal Dart Yacht Club.”

David McGough, JOG President said:

“JOG Week is a very important event in the JOG calendar and the additional support by The Portal Company will enable us to provide a great digital platform for JOG week 2018 alongside the great racing and social events. JOG has always welcomed new crews and boats to its events and I encourage you to put this week in your diary and help us celebrate the great racing and hospitality that JOG is about.”
