A small group of hardy J24 sailors made the annual sailing and party pilgrimage to Geelong this year. The weather was sunny and hot and with a great range of breezes to suit and gave us some great close racing.
This year we did the passage race on the Thursday, 3 windward / leewards on the Friday and a short round the sticks race on Saturday, Sunday was light wind and blazing hot, more than that it was time to go home after the race and you guessed it, the wind was on the nose back to Sandy, so we skipped the last race in favour of the tow we organised from one of the Sandy patrol boats and we all bought blue tarps to keep the sun off.
So perhaps the most unusual regatta picture is of 3 of the 4 boat tent city towing back to Sandy.
The series was won by Make My Jay, from Kicking Bottom, Hyperactive and Sanguine. Full results are at http://www.topyacht.net.au/results/2012/fos/j24/SGrp31.htm
