For Results for the JBSC Club races


The last race was a Pointscore Event, on Saturday 27 February sailed in very light conditions 3-8 knots, SE-NE. Special Thanks to duty crew Geoff Carne who battled away with resets in the fluky 'pull ye hair our conditions'. The tiny course was justified with the Pointscore race completed in just over an hour after a 10 minutes delay to the start. It was very much a 'Thanks for Waiting' day as the early handicap starters struggled to get over the line and make progress as the time ticked away. Jacob Bates led the fleet for the first half of the race showing great resolve in the frustrating conditions. Well done Jacob. The fleet bunched up, and there were some great tussles especially over the closing stages. Only 4 minutes separated the fleet at the finish. The race was won by Beau and Lachlan McLean (505) who 'hung the spinnaker' out to dry, despite the light conditions. Second was Dave Ginty (Laser), from David Bannell (Laser), Bain Painter (Laser) and John Anderson (Hunter 216).

The overall season results to date are: POINTSCORE => Beau and Lachlan McLean (505) is First, followed by David Bannell (Laser Full), and Geoff Carne (Laser) and Mike Wootten (Sprial)) in Equal Third Place overall. CHAMPIONSHIP => Merv Lotze (Spiral) is First, followed by Mike Wootten (Spiral) and Beau & Lachlan McLean (505) in Third Place overall. SPRINTS => Merv Lotze (Spiral) is First, followed by Mike Wootten (Spiral), John Anderson (Hunter 216) and Richard Pryor (Laser Radial).

The overall season results for 75% of races to date (allowing worse result drops) are: POINTSCORE => Beau and Lachlan McLean (505) is First, followed by Richard Pryor (Laser Radial), Merv Lotze (Spiral) and David Bannell (Laser Full). CHAMPIONSHIP => Merv Lotze (Spiral) is First, followed by Mike Wootten (Spiral), Andrew Summers (Laser) and Beau & Lachlan McLean (505). SPRINTS => Merv Lotze (Spiral) is First, followed by Mike Wootten (Spiral), John Anderson (Hunter 216) and Richard Pryor (Laser Radial).

The next race is a Championship and Sprints Event on 6 March 2021 with Andrew Summers on duty. See You There and Then!

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.
