Rudder Shield  2019

May 4 2019


The Jubilee Yacht Association of Victoria hosted the Rudder Shield at the Ballarat Yacht Club on Lake Wendouree on Saturday 4 May. The Rudder Shield is an annual contest for the 80+ year old Jubilee Class One Design yacht.


Sorrento and Ballarat fielded two teams along with teams representing Royal Brighton, Cronulla (NSW) and last years debutants and the reigning champions, Albert Park YC.  Cairn Curran YC were this years new comers, being invited to join in following their successful hosting the Jubilee 2019 State Titles.


The series included 7 short races with teams rotating between the 8 yachts made available by the Ballarat Yacht Club members. The yachts were provided fully rigged and the guests just bring themselves and sailing gear. Boat owners are not to skipper their own boat but they can crew. A team captain is elected for each club and crew with more than 30 sailors competing.


The eventual victor was Ballarat Yacht Clubs ‘Team 2’, followed by Albert Park and Cronulla. The best performing Jubilee on the day was J137 ‘Colour Me Gone’.

Spirited competition was enjoyed by all.


The racing was keenly supported and those on shore had an enjoyable day with all racing clearly visible from the clubhouse.

“Great to be on the water in different Jubes and with different crew. Seemed to be so much interest that it will be an even bigger event next year”. John McKean Corella J107.

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!
