At the J/111 Northern European Fleet owners meeting, held at The Royal Thames Yacht Club in November, great sportsmanship was shown. Tony Mack presented the J-Cup 2021 to Journeymaker, following redress being awarded to Journeymaker for one of the races. They had issues whilst rounding the spreader mark.
“The racing was so tight that this course issue, resolved by the protest committee after the presentation, just squeezed the result in our favour.“ Said Chris Jones; skipper of Journeymaker.
The result meant that they should have been awarded the Cup with McFly second. Justice was seen to be done.
Congratulations to Journeymaker and the sportsmanship of McFly, as we look forward to J-Cup 2022.
