Australian Jubilee Championship Huntingfield Cup Regatta 2018

Sorrento Sailing and Couta Boat Club from 9-11 February 2018.

Winner: Charles Weatherly / Scorpion / Ballaarat Yacht  Club.

9 Jubilees comprising 5 from Ballarat, 1 from Sydney, 1 from Queensland and 2 from Sorrento. The series consisted of 7 races with final results convincingly going to Charlie Weatherly of Ballarat sailing ‘Scorpion J133’ (8 points). Second was David Bray, Sydney sailing ‘Wataworrie J120’ (13 points) and third was Bob McDonald of Sorrento ‘Jubilant J54’ (17 points).

Lady Skippers trophy was awarded to Leonie Crosbie, Ballarat ‘Jemima J116’ (20 points) and 4th in the series. Leonie’s rival Allison Earley of Queensland sailing ‘Stella J123’ (30 points) and 5th overall.

The series was sailed in mostly ideal conditions with the heaviest being on the 2nd day and above 20 knots with heavier winds predicted in the afternoon.

At times the lighter wind patches combined with an outgoing tide were a challenge if you picked the wrong side of the course.

The race management was excellent and Fred Allen as Race Officer and the Sorrento team were able to present a professional and very accommodating experience both on and off the water.

 

Our thanks to SSCBC for hosting this event and congratulations to Charlie and his crew for a decisive win.

JA Linacre Memorial Trophy
Victorian State Titles 2017

Ballarat Yacht Club, March 2017.

Winner: Steve Wright / Renaissance / Cronulla Sailing CLub

On Saturday and Sunday the 11th and 12th of March, the Ballaarat Yacht Club hosted the Victorian State annual championships for the Jubilee class one design yachts sailing on Lake Wendouree competing for the J.A. Linacre Memorial Trophy.

 

Eleven yachts competed with competitors from Cronulla and Royal Prince Alfred Yacht Clubs in NSW, Sorrento and Ballaarat Yacht Clubs. The series of five races was dedicated to former club member, Noel John Edwards who has passed away on
3 March 2017.

Racing on Saturday commenced in shifting light winds which tested all crews. Sunday’s winds were stronger with up to 15knots but the variation in speed and direction still tested the skippers.

 

The Ballaarat Yacht Club is a favoured venue particularly for spectators as they are able to enjoy the hospitality of the club facilities and also be up close to the on water action whereas most seaside sailing is a distance off shore and out of view.
