2018 Cronulla J24 Winter Championships – Race Report

So what a difference 24 hours can make……

The Regatta was again hosted by the Cronulla Sailing Club racing in the waters of Bate Bay on Saturday and the Port Hacking Estuary on Sunday. 14 J24’s made the commitment with 5 hulls from the harbour, 1 from Botany Bay, and a crew from Melbourne showing the depth and strength of J24 racing.

Saturday began in a light 4-8 knot breeze, Dave Mclachlan, PRO and his team on the start boat got proceedings underway on time. ACE, David West and his crew, using this regatta in their lead up to representing Australia at the J24 World Championships in Italy later this year, won the start and the first race ahead of NSW J24 President,  John Crawford on INNAMINCKA in second and Bryce Edwards driving WOOD DUCK in third.

Second race saw the forever young David McKay in STAMPED URGENT rise to the top, with INNAMINCKA in second and again new comer to the class WOOD DUCK third.

The PRO kept things moving in a dying breeze and race three got underway. Stephen Wright and his crew in TINTO, preparing for the J24 Worlds successful in first.  ACE in second, with Mr Mckay again making an appearance in third.

The forth and what ended up being the final race for the day saw TINTO again take first with WOOD DUCK in second and Janette Syme in WILDFIRE arriving in third. Sails were then dropped and each J24 mounted there 3.5 hp engines of fury for the motor back to Cronulla Sailing Club for an evening BBQ with the sun disappearing on the horizon.

Day 2 and someone ordered wind right???

With the southerly change hitting early Sunday morning wind was certainly no question for day 2. A steady 20 knots with 30 knot busters made for some interesting times and some equipment failure.

Race 5 saw the girls from Sandringham Yacht Club, with Kirsty Harris driving HYPERACTIVE win pole position followed by Mr Consistency TINTO and WOOD DUCK in third. Race 6 and WOOD DUCK popped to the top followed by again TINTO with INNAMINCKA in third. Race 7 saw WOOD DUCK again hit first, TINTO in second and STAMPED URGENT in third, Cronulla Boats 1, 2, 3.

This is where the PRO decided enough was enough and racing was concluded. However the crowd on Bass and Flinders Point had enjoyed watching the colourful sails and inspecting the clean hull of VERTIGO, Clinton Hood.

Final results, congratulations to Stephen Wright and TINTO first on scratch and handicap, Second on scratch was Class new comer Bryce Edwards in his dad’s J24, could be an interesting discussion leading into the States in November. Bryce also achieved 3rd on handicap. Second on handicap was J24 Southern Sydney Fleet President, John Zagame driving JARGON with third overall going to the forever young David McKay on STAMPED URGENT.
