The NSW Jeanneau Sailing Rendezvous 2013, proudly sponsored by Sydney City Marine and hosted by NSW Jeanneau dealer Performance Boating, took place on Sydney Harbour last weekend with nearly 40 yachts participating. After a leisurely race and cruise the festivities continued with a party and prize night at the Northbridge Sailing Club in Middle Harbour.

With three divisions, two for those that are for the more competitive minded, and also a cruising division, the day had the weather gods smiling as everyone enjoyed beautiful sailing conditions of sunny skies and light breeze. A quick downpour at 5pm could not even dampen the atmosphere.

Crews in colorful uniforms, yachts bedecked in flags, everyone got into the spirit of the day which ended with most of the fleet anchoring or rafting up for the Saturday evening. A wide range of models were represented from a 1990 Sun Light 31 to the flagship of the range, the Jeanneau 57 and everything in between.

Trophies were to place getters in each division, and then our naming sponsor Sydney City Marine generously offered a full antifoul valued at up to $4,000 which was drawn from a hat and won by Greg O’Neil for his SO36i. A wide variety of prizes were also distributed to every yacht. Thanks again to our generous sponsors. All food for the evening was provided with the support of Performance Boating, Cosine Shipwrights and River Quays Marina.
