The first race of the season was sailed in ideal conditions on Saturday 23 October 2021 with a fleet of 8, with a few casual non-entry yachts and some new comers. The duty crew of David Ginty and John Anderson set a lovely course is the ideal 10 knot NE winds. The winds were steady for most, but Richard Pryor showed an uncanny ability to find holes and huge backing shifts. Despite the newcomers, the drop outs, and many rusty competitors and boats, the handicap system worked well with the 5 finishers all within 5 minutes of each other after 85 minutes of racing. Richard Pryor, sailing a Laser with a 4.7 m sail was very fast early, and held off the back markers until the last two legs when he found holes and shifts. Greg Thorton sailing his Laser Radial after a long layoff did very well is conditions which suited him in the past. Geoff Carne (Laser Full) worked his way from the back of the fleet to win the Pointscore race by 1 minute from Richard Pryor (Laser 4.7), Mike Wootten (Spiral) and Greg Thorton (Laser Radial). Bain Painter (Laser Full) and Simon Hart (Laser Full) both had gear failures after showing early promise, and had to withdraw. Peter Whitten (Sabre) and Steve Lymbery (Tasar) also did not finish the race.
The next race is a Championship and Sprints event on 30 October 2021 with Geoff Carne on Duty. See You There and Then! Cheers!

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.
