2009 SA State Championships go to Fun2

The S.A. State Championships were held at Adelaide Sailing club and sailed in 4 – 8 knts most of the weekend with plenty of windshifts. There was plenty of close racing with several heats only being won by 1 second.

Good Company – Robin townsend and Vertigo – Jamie Goode were in the action all weekend but Fun2 consistantly played the shifts and kept to the middle of the coursre.

By the end of the Regatta Cookie Monster benefitted from being at the event and had wins on handicap on the last day

Congratulations to Fun2, skippered by Alyn Stevenson for the One Design AND Handicap wins!

Melbourne Fleet Expands

Well, doesn’t get any smaller would be more accurate, but we do have a new skipper.

Ron Thomson, who has recently moved back to Melbourne from Sydney is our newest J owner, buying Kicking Bottom from Simon Grain.

Ron answered Simon’s online ad for a small keelboat to race, not knowing much about J24s at all. After a suitable gestation period – and some racing on the boat with Simon and crew, he has made the move to being our newest skipper.

Welcome Ron – hope you have a great time with the J!
