Jervis Bay Sailing Club


 What's New:

Results for the last Championship and Sprint Races held on 21 April are now shown. The start of the race was delayed by 90 minutes due to very light conditions, which meant that no extra Sprint races were sailed. The breeze filled in from the ENE at around 5 knots, providing a marked change from high winds that have dominated the season. There were 7 starters including Bill Jauncey (Spiral) from the Nowra Community Sailing Club. Nev Lotze sailed superbly leading from start to finish in his Impulse, revelling in the light conditions. The Championship and first Sprint Race was won by Nev Lotze (Impulse), from Merv Lotze (Spiral); with 'Mister Consistent' Richard Pryor (Spiral) a very meritorious third. Bill Jauncey (Spiral) sailing as a guest from the Nowra Community Sailing club, finished in third place overall.

Special thanks to Greg Thorton and his wife who set a wonderful course in challenging conditions with the delays and wind shifts.

The Preliminary Overall leaders for the series of races to date are:
Championship: 1st Merv Lotze (Spiral); 2nd Mike Wootten (Spiral); 3rd Richard Pryor (Spiral)
Sprints: 1st Merv Lotze (Spiral); 2nd Mike Wootten (Spiral) and 3rd Richard Pryor (Spiral)
