The Jubilee One-Design Class yacht is a tribute to her designers and can proudly stand among the most versatile and enjoyable yachts in the world.
2021 Rudder Shield
Albert Park Yacht Club hosted the event that was well attended from both clubs. Jemima and Chardonnay travelled down from Ballaarat Yacht Club to join Wataworrie and Pegasus making 4 boats.
The teams were APYC Swans, APYC Peggy Gals, BYC Won and BYC Two. 20 -30 people enjoyed excellent conditions, tricky wind shifts a brief stormy blow and continuous sunshine throughout the day.
‘Somehow’ the teams were organised by the team captains, everyone had numerous opportunities to crew and skipper. It was a great opportunity to compare rigging, which boat sailed well and to generally enjoy good company and sailing.
The Club spirit was evident when Wataworrie dropped her centre plate and many hands assisted and provided ideas and a repair was made on the spot.
Overall best performing boat was Jemima.
Congratulations to Albert Park Yacht Club for taking out the trophy, on count back. A model size trophy was presented to the winners.
Thankyou to John Brewer for crafting the trophy and to everyone who attended.
Jonah Moloney Wise filmed the day using his drone and the footage will be available through the Jubilee Yacht Association website, thanks Jonah.
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!
