The 2019 JOG prize giving in Southampton on Saturday 7th December marked the end of the season with a our JOG community trading in their oilies for their ball gowns and suits.
A very deserved Kathy Claydon with Arcsine was awarded the Imperator Trophy for Yacht of the Year. Kathy’s dedication and service to JOG has been outstanding over the years and it’s a real honour to have her sail within our fleet.
This year the Young Sailor of the year was awarded to Tom Adams. Tom has sailed with SCREAM for many seasons and represents the drive and dedication that JOG look for in its program to promote younger sailors.
Tom’s skipper, Stuart Lawrence commented “Tom is one of those crew members that you see on your crew list and feel reassured that things will probably go well for you. He’s a very likeable person who is compassionate and well thought off within the JOG community.”
Some exciting announcements were also made with more information to follow including rebranding our classes to Class 1, Class 2 and Class 3.
The JOG 70th Anniversary triangle race was also confirmed starting and ending in Cowes with the course taking the fleet to Dieppe and Fecamp.
