J/111 JOUST Tops Super 11’s State Title

J/111 Joust sailing off Australia (Melbourne, Australia)- Rod Warren’s J/111 JOUST performed well at the recent state titles for the newly formed Super 11 group, which includes a Melges 32, Reichel-Pugh 36, McConaghy 31's and other light weight flyers.

After giving up 10 minutes in the 20 mile passage race by missing a mark and being forced to drop the kite and beat back to be in last position (never a good look) JOUST chewed up the fleet of nine to still win on corrected time! Proving you should never give up.

The following day two windward leewards were run in light breezes favoring the lighter boats. A second and third secured Second place in AMS Class and equal First in PHRF Class scoring.  The J/111 was not expected to perform in this company but once again this great boat proved its versatility and speed!  Thanks for the report from Yachtspot.
