The event that brings the clubs together for a fun day on the water. A teams style competition, rotating through the 4 boats and the best team wins!

We are limited to the use of 4 boats so get in early.


Are you a beginner? An experienced sailor? At school, retired or somewhere in between? An individual, couple or family looking to get on the water? Whatever your answer the Jubilee is the boat for you!

Holding 3-4 people, the Jubilee is a stable, all-weather 18 foot day boat, locally designed and made for Port Phillip Bay. It’s a one-design class and, although some are newer than others, the first one ever built is still sailing and still competitive on the water!

Past sailors and Jubilee owners, travelled from Sydney and Melbourne to reminisce and enjoy the great spectator viewing from the deck and clubhouse. 

Thanks to The Ballaarat Yacht Club for hosting us and putting on a spirited weekend of racing. I think that all would agree it was a great experience.
