J/111 JOUST Wins Lipton Cup Australia

J/111 Joust sailing Lipton Cup
(Melbourne, Australia)- Despite earlier results, indicating that the winner of the Lipton Cup Trophy was another boat, a scoring review was taken on Monday morning following the announcement of the results on Sunday. It was determined that there was an anomaly in placings - this was then rectified, subsequently changing the overall results.

As a result of the review, the finish time of the J/122 JAKE was altered for race 1, and there was a net effect on the fleet results. As a result, Dr Rod Warren's J/111 JOUST wins the Lipton Cup Regatta off Melbourne, Australia!  Congratulations on the great sailing to the JOUST team!

The 2016 Lipton Cup Regatta came to an end after a weekend of gorgeous, beautiful blue skies and light winds.  Needless to say, the racing was very close.

Official Lipton Cup photographer- Bernie Kaaks- was hard at work over the course of the regatta. The images are  available for viewing and purchase through Bernie's Flickr page.  If you'd like a copy of any photographs, please contact Bernie by email (berniekaaks@bigpond.com), quoting the name and details of the photo you'd like to order or go to the website.  For more Lipton Cup sailing information
