The annual Jervis Bay Cruising Yacht Club Commodore’s Cocktail Party, sponsored by Southern Stones Bar and Rockgrill, was held at Bindijyne Beach on Saturday 21st November.   ‘Cocktail’ dress was left to the individual and a fun array of ‘dinner suits’ and ‘cocktail dresses’ provided much laughter for the evening. Champagne cocktails and canapés were enjoyed as the sun set over the Bay and club members were entertained by live music from Kevin Lord. All proceeds from the evening will be given to Jervis Bay Marine Rescue.

The party was preceded by the last race of the Spring series. The weather was not promising early in the morning with rain, lumpy seas, poor visibility and strong winds. Fortunately the winds dropped as did the seas, the sun emerged and a great day of sailing was enjoyed. Competition was stiff as the Spring Series results for each division were dependent on the outcomes of this race.

Alexander was first across the line in Division 1 and also took handicap honours. In Division 2, Matana won on handicap but Motion was first across the line and had a great race. Positions in Division 3 remained fairly constant throughout the race with Overture sailing beautifully to take line honours. However Extasea won on handicap and also took out the Spring series. A great effort by newcomers to racing. Alexander and Matana were also victorious in the Spring Series Division 1 and Division 2 respectively.

The Summer series of racing will begin Sunday 6th December.
