Results for the JBSC Club races


The last race was a Pointscore on Saturday 15 January 2022 with a fleet of 7 boats. Geoff Carne, as Duty Officer, set an excellent course in building NNE winds which averaged around 6-10 knots. The Pointscore race was won by Simon J Hart (Laser Full) who excelled in the conditions, catching the early starters, including Jacob Bates (Spiral), who led until the last leg (well done Jacob). Damien Bates (Finn) also showed increased speed in his Finn, to finish in third place. Fourth was Richard Pryor (Laser Radial & 4.7) and fifth was Mike Wootten (Spiral).

Merv Lotze (Spiral) leads both the Overall Sprints and Championships, from Mike Wootten (Spiral), second in both. Third overall in the Championship is Damien Bates. Richard Pryor (Laser Radial & 4.7) is third overall in the Sprints

The Overall Pointscore results after four races shows Geoff Carne (Laser Full) in first place followed by Merv Lotze (Spiral) in second place, Mike Wootten (Spiral) in third place and Richard Pryor (Laser Radial & 4.7) in fourth place overall.

The Next Race is a Championship and Sprints Event on 22 January 2022 with Richard Pryor on duty. Please allow extra time due to possible holiday crowds and boat ramp congestion. See You There and Then! Cheers!

SAILPASS - Non-members can apply for temporary membership with JBSC to get a Sail Pass, usually for a day.

SailPass is a temporary membership class that enables crew to join JBSC for a day. Sail Pass provides applicants with an Australian Sailing Number and personal accident insurance cover and meets the requirements of Rule 46 of the Racing Rules of Sailing 2021 - 2024 for skippers and crew. It also covers non-sailing crew on the start boat and those who assist the club as Covid-19 marshalls and helpers in other ways. All participants at JBSC, on every day, must have current membership or a Sail Pass, and a current Australian Sailing Number.


SAIL PASS Instructions and Information

Note: A new membership category of 'Associate' has been added for $55 per year. Associate Members (and Crew only Members) shall be entitled to all the privileges of the Club other than the right to hold office, vote at the annual general meeting, or vote at committee meetings. Those that take this option need to fill out the membership form and join as an “Associate” (circle on the form). Associate Members / Crew members do not have the right to enter a yacht in events conducted by the Club. However, a yacht entered by a Full Member, may be skippered by a registered Crew Member, provided the Full Member is on board. Crew Members will be registered as Australian Sailing card holders (SIN) by the club, to satisfy the 46 PERSON IN CHARGE rule, and would be covered by personal accident insurance provided by Australian Sailing. Casual crew are encouraged to join the club as Full or Crew Members, after they have sailed three races as guest crew in a season. Crew who are financial members of other clubs, and have a current SIN, are not necessarily required to join the club, but it is encouraged, if they crew regularly. Associate members do not sail but enjoy the social benefits of the Club and its activities.

Please Note: Membership forms need to be completed and signed before membership registration can be uploaded to Sailing Australia (formally Yachting Australia) web site. Payment is not sufficient. If forms are not completed and paid by 30th September, personal risk insurance provisions will lapse. Sailing Australia have advised that 1 December is deadline for membership renewals to be finalised (so please submit your forms)
