Performance Boating Jeanneau Cup Series final race.
The final race 3 of the inaugural Sydney Jeanneau Cup Series, the Two-Up Cup, took place last Saturday on what turned out to be a fine day on the water, but the race officer was cautious and finished us a little early with the looming thunder storm, which was a good thing as it happened!
The series, hosted by Middle Harbour yacht Club, attracted 17 entries with 9 yachts taking part in the final race which was a good turnout considering all the boats that had been up to Lake Macquarie for our Rendezvous event a few weekends prior, and to the Sail Port Stephens regatta last weekend.
Newcomer to the series Malcom Shaw with his Sun Odyssey 34.2 “Mystere” won the race in a light Easterly with Greg O’Neill’s Sun Odyssey 36i 2nd and Fabian Baez on his Sun Odyssey 36i “Mystique” 3rd.
Following racing the crews gathered at the club where we hosted a BBQ, before attended a prize-giving in the club itself. After a speech and a minutes silence in honour of our ANZAC’s the days and series result were announced.
Jeanneau Cup Overall Series results:
1st – Peter McClelland – Sun Fast 37 “Macscap”
2nd – Mike Gallagher – Sun Odyssey 409 “Galan”
3rd – Eisen Liang – Sun Odyssey 379 “Clovelly Pacific”
The series will take place again next year and for some casual racing though the season it’s a lot of fun, so look forward to seeing more Jeanneau owners join in next year.
