Royal Prince Edward YC hosted this year’s J/24 New South Wales State Championship. The fleet had a fantastic turnout and some amazing racing within sight of the famous Sydney Heads. Chef Paula of the Australian J/24 Class said, “Thank you to the 16 crews who attended, and all the staff and committee and volunteers at Royal Prince Edward YC for making the NSW J/24 State Championships such a great regatta. Two days of good breezy racing kept the fleet happy, and I am sure you will all agree that the Saturday night dinner was a great success and hopefully you all had chance to mingle with other sailors you hadn’t previously spoken with!” First was the duo of Arthur Crothers/Sean Kirkjian on KAOTIC. The balance of the top five was Stephen Girdis on CONVICTS REVENGE in second, John Crawford’s INNAMINCKA in third, Marc & Oloff Tromp & Brendan Lee on WATERBORNE AGAIN in fourth, and David West & Andy Lim sailing ACE taking fifth overall. Top women’s skipper was Janette Syme on WILDFIRE. And the winners of the Handicap Division were Ron Thomson on KICKING in first, the WATERBORNE AGAIN gang in second and Janet’s WILDFIRE in third.
