The concluding race for JOG's 64th season and decider for the inshore trophies was Round the Owers truncated into Round a Central Solent Triangle with kedging. Sensibly the race team decided anything more ambitious was out of the question with the forecast of Saturday 3rd October! Class winners were Hot Cookie, Just So, Windjammer, Moondog and, for 2-handed, Juliette.

Offshore results were decided on the previous weekend with the customary last race to Cherbourg; competitors reporting some of the best night-time conditions they could remember and the bonus of dolphins, or some say porpoises, leaping clear of the water at the finish.

Special mention to Ariane (Oyster 26) being the smallest boat in the fleet for winning class 6, the other race victors being Pincer Movement (2-handed), Zonpuka, Just So and Old Mother Gun.

JOG's formula of a varied race programme and a welcoming post-race party has again proved popular this year and we're grateful to our race sponsors, Northface Connections, RS Divers, Hamble Estate Agency, North Sails, Universal Safety, RPL Construction and Doyle Sails.

A new destination this year was Dielette with an interesting course (sharp left turn at the Casquets) and a very nice port on arrival in delightful conditions. The 2016 programme is already on the website and to mark JOG's 65th year of racing another new destination will be Roscoff, starting on Saturday 28th May.

Plans are underway to ensure the celebration is a success on arrival at Roscoff and the committee is working on the option of two not-for-series-points races to bring competitors some of the way back in the following week. So, new competitors and seasoned campaigners – mark up your diaries or mobile devices now!

JOG was founded on the 7th December 1950 and we are taking the opportunity to celebrate that at the AGM & Prize-Giving Dinner Dance to be held on 5th December 2015, with trophies being awarded to race and series winners.
