J/99 'Jedi' scores another stunning trifecta

by Ray Entwistle 20 Nov 06:31 GMT

J/99 'Jedi' scores another stunning trifecta win, racing offshore out of Royal Prince Alfred YC in Pittwater, near Sydney. The top mark was 8nm offshore, conditions were light 5-10 knots ESE.

'Jedi' was one of two boats sailing two-up in the combined 18 boat fleet. 'Jedi' finished first overall combined Div 1 and 2 fleets in ORC, and first ORC and IRC in Div 2. Results below where you can see the J/99 was the smallest boat by far and still beating fully crewed 40+ footers on the water.

Skipper Ray Entwistle said:

"We have now been lucky enough to experience the J/99 in many different wind and sea states and the results have been just as impressive. The first race in 8-15knots and lumpy seaway, second race in 15-25 knots and very rough seaway, third race in light conditions and fairly flat seas. The J/99 has performed outstandingly well in this wide range of conditions, is incredibly easy to manage and a real joy to sail."
