Despite a reschedule the current lockdown means that yet again we’ve had to cancel the final race of the Jeanneau Cup season. We would like to thank Middle Harbour Yacht Club for trying their best to accommodate us, and for hosting us for the first two races.
Congratulations to David and his co-owners on the JOD35 “Starstruck”, which with a 3rd and a 1st took out the win. They race the yacht really well and it’s great to see it have a new lease of life under their ownership. Hard luck to the co-owners of the Sun Odyssey 440 “Ca Va” who missed out on the podium on a countback!

A total of fifteen entries was a great turnout in the circumstances, with a wide diversity of models, eight in total taking part. A special mention for Frank Milner who brought his 349 down from Pittwater especially for both races. On the subject of 349’s we are delighted to have confirmed our 28th order to NSW, so the fleet continues to build!
We would welcome feed-back from owners re events for next season. A dedicated 349 event is on the cards, and perhaps our own courses for a 3-race series out of MHYC, keeping to the ocean side of the Sydney Harbour bridge. Email firstname.lastname@example.org .
We had intended to show-case the new Sun Fast 3300 at this weekends last race. This is a really phenomenal racing yacht, so keep an eye out on Sydney harbour as there are two here now which will be racing out of the CYCA once the restrictions are lifted. We believe that there could be five of them doing the Hobart this year, four of them 2-handed.
Jeanneau’s have continued with club racing success with reports from owners of division wins in multiple clubs all around NSW, from Newcastle, Lake Macquarie, Pittwater and Sydney Harbour.
** The overall series trophies will be delivered to the award winners as soon as possible.
