It’s been a busy season as usual for Junior Offshore Group (JOG) with fifteen races split across an inshore (cat 4) series and an offshore (cat 3) series.

The weather has been variable to say the least: March saw the season kick off with an inshore Solent race that had many defrosting their decks before the start, and the St Peter Port race in August was only finished by two very determined boats in horrible conditions. The last offshore of the season in September finally offered the fleet some champagne sailing conditions, a fast, mild, starry skies, overnight dash to Cherbourg, and the season closed on Saturday with a sunny coastal race out to the Owers and back to Portsmouth.

With a consistently high standard of sailing across the fleet JOG are delighted to announce the 2012 provisional winners as follows, and will look forward to handing out the trophies at the Prizegiving Dinner on the 17th November 2012.

Overall winners by class Category 4 Inshore Series:

Class 3: OJE (J111) owned and raced by Andy Hill
Class 4: JIBE (J/109) owned and raced by Robin Taunt
Class 5: Black Diamond (Figaro Solo) owned and raced by Mark Brown and Justin Leese

Double Handed Results by class Category 4 Inshore Series:

Class 5: QT (Ecume de Mer) owned and raced by Giles Redpath

Class 4: SX Girl (X37) owned and raced by John and Christine White

The provisional race calendar for 2013 sees the season start at the end of March with a Cherbourg race, and will also feature JOG’s longest race yet, The BNY Mellon Challenge, a 1000 mile, two leg race to Cascais, Portugal ,via La Trinité in Brittany, starting 14th June 2013.

We’re looking forward to it already!
