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!

2021 Queensland State Titles

11th/12th September 2021


Following on from their successful running of the inaugural State Titles last year, Tingira Boat Club on Macleay Island in southern Moreton Bay, generously provided the venue and officials for the 2021 championships over the weekend 11th and 12th September.

Once again, this little all-volunteer club did a magnificent job of conducting a six heat series within a very tight (tide dictated) time frame. All participating Jubilee sailors are most grateful for their efforts.
