2024 Rudder Shield

The 2024 Rudder Shield was held at Ballaarat Yacht Club on Lake Wendouree on 28th April.

Teams from Albert Park Yacht Club, Ballaarat Yacht Club, Cronulla sailing Club and Sorrento 

Ultimately it was the team from Cronulla winning the series by one point over the  Albert Park teams followed by Ballarat then Sorrento.

In thanking all present, President Leonie said that the Rudder Shield commenced in 1957 providing 66 years of enjoying the spirit of sailing between Jubilee clubs. Leonie presented the Cronulla Team  with a replica Rudder Shield again made and donated to the Association by John Brewer.

We all enjoyed well run racing, tight competition and excellent hospitality over the weekend. 




   In 2017 “Freydis J1" was gifted to the Jubilee Yacht Association by Bryan Linacre who at the age of 91 had retired from active sailing. "Freydis J1" was the first Jubilee Class Yacht and was built for Bryan's father Jim A. Linacre, in 1935 by Charlie Peel Boat Builder of Melbourne and has been in the Linacre family for most of its 83 years. She had been sailed regularly at Royal Brighton Yacht Club until 2017 on Bryan's retirement.


In gifting "Freydis J1" to the Jubilee Association of Victoria, the Linacre Family requested that she continued to be sailed and used to promote and further the development of the Jubilee One Design Class.

After an initial stripping of the hull, the restoration was interrupted by Covid and it wasn’t until November 2023 that the team of John Brewer, Joe Luciani and Paul Crosbie commenced work in earnest. Over the last six months we have invested 350 hours into the project and are happy with our progress.


The hull was stripped back to raw timber then a penetrating epoxy was applied before filling gaps in the planks  with a mixture of sawduct and epoxy. Then began the labourious process of filling and sanding multiple times before fibreglass and epoxy was applied. More filling and sanding again multiple time until we were happy then an undercoats was followed by a topcoat in Ice White.  The deck was also fibreglassed and both the deck and the inside will be coated with “Treadgrip”, a rubberized product which is elastic so will waterproof as well as being nonslip.

The relauch of Freydis will be towards the end of 2024.

JYAA Memberships are due for 2023-24 .
