Stuart Lyon and his crew on the J/111 ‘Jake’ have won the trifecta being 1st on IRC, AMS and PHS in the 3 race ORCV Bass Strait Series which includes:

  • Boxing Day Dash, Port Phillip Bay – Port Melbourne to Blairgowrie

Its great to see this 36ft speedster proving herself against much larger boats in the Melbourne offshore circuit. Watch for another J /111 joining the fun in Melbourne at Easter.
