Winds pick up for last race of JBCYC Round the Bay Series

posted May 15, 2021, 9:23 PM by Pat Grogan

The Jervis Bay Cruising Yacht Club ran the 5th and final round of their Round the Bay Series on Sunday May 2nd. With light winds forecast to build from the NW a race fleet of 14 yachts took to the water.

The seven larger Division 1 boats raced anticlockwise around a 17 nautical mile circuit. The smaller Division 2 vessels took on a shortened version of that course covering 15.3 nautical miles. Brian Horley, having previously campaigned Reflections, entered his new yacht a Swarbrick S80 named Hijack in Division 2.

Division 2 started first, in light NE winds less than 8 knots from the NE. The two light yachts Y-knot, skippered by Steve Lee, and John Andersons Laser 3 jostled for the lead at the start. Hijack passed Laser 3 into 2nd chasing Y-knot as they rounded the 1st mark.

Hijack kept chasing Y-knot as they raced past Callala Beach, across the bay to Longnose Point and up to Honeymoon Bay.

Y-Knot had to make an extra tack to round the mark off Long Beach. This gave Hijack its chance to pass and with the NE winds building it stretched its lead as they headed towards the finish line,

Hijack crossed the finish line 1st in 2 hour 8 seconds just over 5 minutes head of Y-knot. Sirocco was the next yacht to cross the line in 2 hours 19 minutes. Hijack will have to complete another two races before it gets a handicap, so it did not figure in the races final results.

Once handicaps were applied the other yachts in Division 2 moved up. Pru Harper (Sirocco) was awarded 1st place with Trevor Smith (Relentless) 2nd and Peter Cowman (Double Time) 3rd.

In Division 1, Scarborough helmed by Brendan Blank, in its 4th race with the club now had a handicap and was competing with the other yachts. In a bold start Scarborough tacked across the start line. Capitalizing on their start they beat the rest of the division to the 1st mark.

Sojourn 3, skippered by Rick Early rounded the mark 2nd chased by Out of the Blue, helmed by Darren Fry. As the fleet ran South down the bay Out of the Blue hoisted its spinnaker and passed Sojourn 3. Without a spinnaker Sojourn 3 fell back and Out of the Blue gained on Scarborough.

Out of the Blue passed Scarborough into the lead and held it all the way to Longnose Point. Scarborough kept challenging passing Out of the Blue as they approached Honeymoon Bay.

Sojourn 3 sailing into the wind, that was gusting over 20 knots made up the ground it lost on the downwind leg. It passed Out of the Blue 150 meters from the penultimate race mark and started gaining on Scarborough.

After 17 nautical miles and over two and a half hours the first 3 yachts finished within 45 seconds. Scarborough crossed the finish line ahead of the other vessels in 2 hours 38 minutes just 15 seconds ahead of Sojourn 3 with Out of the Blue only 30 seconds further back.

Once handicaps were applied the results changed significantly with Darren Fry (Out of the Blue) came 1st with Steve Simpson (Bodacious) 2nd and Brendon Blank (Scarborough) 3rd.

It was the 5th and final race of the Round the Bay Series, with skippers able to drop their worst result. In Division 1 Steve Simpson (Bodacious) won the series on 10 points, just 1 point ahead of Frank Killick (Element) and Paul Gooey (Out of the Blue) tied on 11 points.

In Division 2 Pru Harper (Sirocco) won on 6 points with Steve Lee (Y-knot) 2nd on 8 points and Peter Cowman (Double Time) 3rd on 14 points.

There are still two races to run in the clubs Mountain Ridge Wines Autumn Series. Division 1 currently has 3 boats tied for the lead on 5 points, Bodacious, Element & Invincible. In Division 2 Sirocco on 2 points leads Relentless on 5 points. The clubs next race is on Sunday May 16th.

JBCYC wins back Creswell Cup for 2021

posted May 15, 2021, 9:18 PM by Pat Grogan   [ updated May 15, 2021, 9:22 PM ]

On Sunday, 28th March, the Jervis Bay Cruising Yacht Club ran their annual Creswell Cup Race Day. In the event JBCYC compete against the Navy’s Creswell Albatross Sailing Club (CASC). The fleet divided into 7 pairs that match raced. One yacht competing for the CASC and the other competing for JBCYC.

The forecast was for light winds from the SW turning to the NE and easing into the afternoon. The yachts started at the Southern end of Jervis Bay, near HMAS Creswell and zig zagged across the bay racing North to Callala Bay. The 8 Division 1 yachts traversed a 12.4 nautical mile course, with the 5 smaller Division 2 yachts tackling a slightly shorter 10.6 nautical mile course.

The Division 2 yachts started first with Y-Knott (racing for JBCYC) and Summer of 69 (competing for CASC) in a close start vying for the lead. Y-Knott beat Summer of 69 to the 1st race mark and then began stretching its lead.

Sirocco, skippered by Pru Harper, (racing for CASC) was matched with Double Time helmed by Peter Cowman (racing for JBCYC). In an impressive race Sirocco was able to keep ahead of Double Time and pass Summer of 69. Sirocco was able to stay just ahead of Summer of 69, but could not peg back Y-Knot.

Y-Knot crossed the finish line 1st 2 hours 39 minutes, Sirocco crossed 2nd a further 17 minutes further back with Summer of 69 3rd less than 2 minutes behind Sirocco. Once handicaps were applied Pru Harper (Sirocco) was awarded 1st place with Steve Lee (Y-Knot) moving into 2nd and Peter Cowman (Double Time) 3rd.

In Division 1 Scarborough, helmed by Brendan Blank, (racing for CASC) was matched with Trevor Kanaar’s Invincible (racing for JBCYC. Scarborough got a good start beating the rest of the division to the 1st mark, with Invincible back in the middle of the fleet.

As the yachts in the division raced Northeast towards Longnose Point, Sojourn 3 and Out of the passed Scarborough. Sojourn 3 skippered by Rick Early (racing for CASC) was matched with Out of the Blue helmed by Paul Gooey (racing for JBCYC). Both yachts were close as they rounded the mark near Longnose Point, but after turning and racing back across the bay towards Huskisson, Sojourn 3 got the better of the frequent wind shifts and stretched its lead.

As the fleet turned, off the Southern end of Callala Beach and headed across the bay again to Long Beach, Sojourn 3 had established a considerable lead. With the wind behind them the rest of the yachts in the division flew their spinnakers. Friendship helmed by Rod Targa (racing for CASC) was matched with Steve Simpsons Bodacious (racing for JBCYC). Both yachts racing closely fought a spinnaker duel as they crossed the bay, with Bodacious just edging ahead in the light winds.

Invincible, under spinnaker began making ground on Scarborough drawing closer right up to the finish. Invincible came within 3 minutes of Scarborough but could not quite catch them before the finish line.

Sojourn 3 crossed the finish line 1st in a time of 2 hours 59 minutes. Element, helmed by Frank Killick, put in a solid performance crossing 2nd in 3 hours 9 minutes with Scarborough just over 16 minutes further back crossing 3rd.

Once handicaps were applied Frank Killick (Element) moved up into 1st place with Rick Early (Sojourn 3) 2nd and Steve Simpson (Bodacious) 3rd.

Following the days racing the crews gathered on shore for a social function, with catering organised by the CASC. The results of the respective Match Races were announced with CASC winning 3 of the races and JBCYC winning 4. So, the Creswell Cup for 2021 was handed over by CASC to JBCYC.

The individual results also counted towards JBCYC’s Mountain Ridge Wines Autumn Race Series, with Frank Killick (Element) in Division 1 and Pru Harper (Sirocco) in Division 2 taking early leads in the series.

The clubs next race will be on Sunday April 18th and will be round 3 of the Autumn Series.

JBCYC well represented at Marley Point Regatta

posted Mar 14, 2021, 4:50 PM by Pat Grogan   [ updated Mar 14, 2021, 4:50 PM ]

Three JBCYC boats competed in the 2021 Marley Point Overnight Regatta, held on March 6th.  The boats and their crews were; PuffnStuff – Francis Killick (skipper) and  Alistair Killick ; Why Knot – Steve Lee (skipper) and Pip Davies; and Sirocco – Pat Grogan (skipper), Rick Early and Collette Early.  It was the first in this event for Francis and PuffnStuff and the first time Pat had competed in Sirocco.

The Regatta is sailed on the Gippsland lakes in Victoria.  It starts at the western end on Lake Wellington (Marley Point) and finishes on Lake Victoria at Paynesville. 2021 was the 53rd time it has been run and there were 93 competitors.

The race commenced at 7.45pm in close to ideal conditions – a 10 -15 knots Easterly, “on the nose”.  It was a 2-3 hour beat across the lake to “the narrows”, which connects Lake Wellington and Lake Victoria. On entering this section Sirocco and Why Knot were side by side with Puff and stuff a little further back.

“The narrows” was quite challenging, as it is only about 40 metres wide and twists and turns a lot. Added to this was the large number of boats contesting the same section of water in the dark.  The wind remained “on the nose” but dropped to less than 5 knots - this resulted in lots of tacking; Sirocco counted 64.

Why Knot revelled in these conditions and emerged about an hour ahead of Sirocco. PuffnStuff was a bit further back but had a clean run.

The wind increased to 10 -15 knots again on Lake Victoria but was still “on the nose”. It gradually dropped off during the night and was back to about 5 knots at daybreak. At this point Why Knot was passing Paynesville to complete the final leg around Raymond Island. Sirocco was about an hour further back while PuffnStuff was about 2 hours astern of Sirocco.

Why Knot completed the race in a time of 9hrs 39mins and finished 16th in Div C. Unfortunately, being an hour further back, Sirocco missed the last of the wind. After sitting becalmed for 1.5 hours behind Raymond Island and a forecast of no wind for the remainder of the day a decision was made to retire. PuffnStuff was in a division that didn’t include Raymond Island so managed to make it to the finish at Paynesville. She completed the course in 16hrs 11mins finished 25th in her division – a great effort for a first timer in a recently acquired boat, with only two on-board.

All 3 JBCYC competitors are indebted to their support crews who made a vital contribution to the all important race preparation.  The crews were: Kylie McDonald – Sirocco; Donna Killick – PuffnStuff; and Tom Davies – Why Knot.

In Division 2 with light and patchy winds, at times dropping below 7 knots the light Y-Knot, skippered by Steve Lee, got off to the best start beating the rest of the fleet to the 1st race mark. Kevin Lord at the helm of Summer of 69 chased Y-Knot, both yachts hoisting their spinnakers after they turned and raced southwest towards Callala Beach. 

The early stages of the race were slow, due to the light winds, and the courses for both divisions were shortened. The Division 2 course took the yachts across the bay from Callala Beach to Long Beach. 

John Anderson in Laser 3, Pru Harper in Sirocco and Trevor Smith in Relentless were racing closely for 3rd place as they turned near Callala Beach and headed east across the bay. Relentless got a favourable wind shift passing Laser 3 and Sirocco. Sirocco. Laser 3 then chased patches of wind as they crossed the bay, Sirocco got the better of the wind shifts eventually leaving Laser 3 behind.

Y-Knot got becalmed off Long Beach as the wind shifted to the Northeast, but they still managed to hold off Summer of 69. As the wind picked up both yachts were able to fly their spinnakers as they raced back to Callala Bay

After leading the division all the way Y-Knot crossed the finish line 1st after 3 hours and 6 minutes. Summer of 69 crossed 2nd in 3 hours 23 minutes with Relentless 19 minutes further back crossing 3rd.

In Division 1 Element got away in the light winds and beat the rest of the division to the 1st mark. As the yachts turned towards Callala Beach most of the fleet flew their spinnakers and with the yachts racing closely Invincible took the lead as the they headed to Callala Beach.

South of Callala Beach the fleet split with Sojourn 3 and Element heading into the middle of the bay and Out of the Blue and Invincible going further south and turning parallel to Longnose Point. Their choice paid off for Invincible taking the lead as they approached Longnose Point.

Sojourn 3 passed Invincible as they raced North past longnose point. Approaching Honeymoon Bay and Out of the Blue passed Invincible and began chasing Sojourn 3.

With spinnakers flying Out of the Blue was gaining on Sojourn 3 as they approached the finish line but could not quite catch them.

posted Mar 8, 2021, 9:35 PM by David Churchward   [ updated Mar 8, 2021, 9:38 PM ]


On a fine Sunday with southerly winds forecast to build during the day, the Jervis Bay Cruising Yacht Club ran round four of their Mountain Ridge Wines Summer Series on 7th February. Thirteen yachts turned out for the event, seven larger yachts in Division 1 and 6 smaller vessels competing in Division 2.

The fleet raced clockwise around the northern end of Jervis Bay, with Division 1 tackling a 13 nautical mile circuit with the Division 2 course slightly shorter at 10.7 nautical miles.

Then Kevin Lord at the helm of Summer of 69 benefited from a favourable wind shift and shot past Laser 3. Summer of 69 beat the rest of the division to the first race mark and continued to pull away from the rest of the fleet leading for the rest of the race.

In Division 2 Summer of 69 was the 1st yacht to finish in 2 hours 38 minutes with Relentless just under 10 minutes further back and Double Time crossing 3rd in 3 hours and 1 minute.

Afloat Magazine Article - "Don’t step on the brightwork"

posted Feb 3, 2021, 4:27 PM by Pat Grogan   [ updated Feb 4, 2021, 9:48 AM ]

In response to an article about Hugh Treharne in the November Afloat magazine , our resident JBCYC Historian, Peter Cowman, submitted and had published the following article in the Afloat magazine. Keep an eye out for it.

Hugh Treharne is certainly a man to admire. I had the good fortune to sail with him on two occasions and learnt much to confirm that he is a fine person and sailor.

In the mid 1990’s, Hugh began charter sailing adventures on his yacht, Bright Morning Star, a 51ft sloop he had built himself. Hugh was advertising coastal and ocean sailing voyages for paying crew and I signed on for one of the early trips; Southport to Middleton Reef to Lord Howe Island. On board was Hugh as owner/skipper; Bob Holmes as mate/cook; Hugh’s son and about six paying crew. 

We departed Southport early one morning with reefed sails and a 20kt southerly which stayed with us the entire trip. After 50 hours on starboard tack, we arrived at Middleton Reef and anchored in calm water just outside the reef. We spent the day swimming and fishing (until the sharks became too aggressive) and appreciating the lonely isolated seascape with the somber wreck of the Runic nearby.

At nightfall, we set sail south passing Elizabeth Reef in the night. Next day we slowly raised Lord Howe Island in the distance, but the light faded as we got closer. I was on the helm as we sailed towards the dark mass of the island with only one or two lights visible. 

Hugh, who had been watching the depth sounder and GPS at the chart table downstairs, came up on deck and studied the scene for a few minutes. It was very difficult to gauge distance in the blackness and we were sailing quite fast. (No chartplotter on that boat). Eventually, Hugh broke the silence: “Peter, you’ve got your foot on the varnish”. Well, what a relief, we don’t need the life jackets. “Oh yes, sorry Hugh”. 

Hugh passed on his sailing knowledge in coastal and ocean yachting to many sailors of varying ability, all of whom would have benefited from his skills and generous nature. The Complete Sailor; an accurate description.

Large race fleet turn out for running of JBCYC Cat Classic

posted Jan 31, 2021, 5:50 PM by David Churchward

The Jervis Bay Cruising Yacht Club ran the Cat Classic, on Sunday 24th January. The race was round 3 of the Round the Bay Series as well as round 3 of the Mountain Ridge Wines Summer Series and round 8 of the JBCYC Club Championships.

Two yachts from the Batemans Bay sailing club, Accolade skippered Lachlan Brown and Tony Suttons Moonmist, made the trip north for the race. New JBCYC club member, Roger Uebe also entered his trimaran Free Spirit. All up a fleet of 21 yachts turned out for the race on a clear and very warm summer day with strong winds forecast.

Six catamarans in the race fleet were also competing in the annual Cat Classic. The Cat Classic is one of the years feature races where the winning catamaran gets a place on the perpetual trophy. 

The larger Division 1 yachts, including the catamarans, tackled a 17 nautical mile course racing clockwise around Jervis Bay. The smaller Division 2 yachts took on a shortened version of the course that was 15.3 nautical miles.

Division 2 started first in light 10 knot winds. The light Y-Knot, with Steve Lee at the helm beat the rest of the division to the 1st race mark, just edging out Trevor Smith in Relentless. As the winds built during the race, getting to over 20 knots, the conditions suited the larger and heavier Relentless.

Relentless crossed the finish line 1st in Division 2 in 2 hours and 40 minutes, just over 7 minutes ahead of Y-Knot. Sirocco, helmed by Pru Harper and with an all-female crew, crossed 3rd in 2 hours 57 minutes. After only three races together crew of Sirocco are shaping up as formidable competitors. 

Once handicaps were applied to the race times Denis Meredith (Wotalife) was awarded 1st Place with Trevor Smith (Relentless)2nd and Pru Harper (Sirocco) 3rd.

In Division 1 the two visiting boats from Batemans Bay took an early lead. Moonmist led the field just after the race start and was passed by Accolade. Accolade then led for the rest of the race.

Invincible, with Trevor Kanaar as skipper, got the best start of the Jervis Bay Cruising Yacht Club members, beating Paul Gooeys’ Out of the Blue and Rick Early in Sojourn 3 to the first mark. Invincible kept ahead as the yachts turned and ran south down the bay. 

When the yachts turned near HMAS Creswell and sailed into the wind, traveling north back up the bay, Out of the Blue began catching Invincible. Out of the Blue eventually passed Invincible off Plantation Point. 

Sojourn 3 then passed Invincible and began challenging Out of the Blue. Sojourn 3 got passed just off Callala Beach and the two yachts fought a tacking duel to the finish line. Towards the end of the race Out of the Blue was catching Sojourn 3 but could not catch them before the finish.

Accolade crossed the finish line 1st in a time of 2 hours 35 minutes, just under 12 minutes ahead of Moonmist. Sojourn 3 was the 1st of the JBCYC yachts in division 1 to cross the line in 2 hours 51 minutes. 

The handicaps, however, pushed the faster yachts from Batemans Bay Sailing Club down the results considerably and Mitchel Leach (Tranquillity)took 1st place. Rob Chittendon (Element)was awarded 2nd and Paul Gooey (Out of the Blue) was given 3rd.

The days feature event was the Cat Classic, with a fleet of six Seawind catamarans of various size and specification competing.

Mitchell Leach took the helm of Tranquillity, a boat campaigned in previous years by his father Alan. Alan Nebauer entered Pleiades, a Seawind 1260, the newest and largest catamaran in the race.

After a good close start Lukim Yu, skippered by Peter Dun beat the rest of the cats to the 1st mark. Tranquillity was close behind as they turned and headed south. In the run down the bay Tranquillity hoisted its’ Screecher and passed Lukim Yu off Long Beach.

Tranquillity, Lukim Yu and Sas Sea (skippered by John Lawrence) were close together as they ran past Honeymoon Bay. Pleiades had a slow start but began making its way through the field and had passed Sas Sea and Lukim Yu by the time they turned at Longnose point and headed west.

Pleaides passed Tranquillity at the southern end of the bay, near HMAS Creswell, and the two leading catamarans fought over 1st place for the rest of the race. Lukim Yu and Sas Sea continued to fight for 3rd place as those two cats raced past Callala Beach. 

Alan Nebauer (Pleaides)crossed the finish line 1st in 2 hours 51 minutes less that 2 minutes ahead of Mitchel Leach (Tranquillity) and John Lawrence (Sas Sea) was a further 1 minute 20 seconds behind in 3rd place. With no handicaps applied to the results Alan Nebauers’ name went onto the Cat Classic trophy for 2021.
