2018 Commodore’s Perpetual Trophy Race Results

The 2018 Commodore’s Perpetual Trophy Race was held on the 25th March at Fremantle Sailing Club. We had 10 S&S34’s present and 12 Commodore’s from various clubs in Western Australia.

The wind was a great 15-20knots and conditions were just right for our yachts up until midway in the race when the wind died and we were all left floating for a while. The breeze kicked in again and we were all away to the finish line. Refreshments and presentations were held after and enjoyed by all.

The final results were,

1st and Fastest  – Perie Banou III – Owner Colin Sanders and Commodore Danny O’Byrne from East Fremantle Sailing Club

2nd Morning Tide – Owner Jim Putt and Commodore Graeme Cole from Ocean Reef Sea Sports Club

3rd Seashell – Owner Dave Mitchell and Commanding Officer Brian Delamont from HMAS Stirling, Fleet Base West.


The West Australian: S&S 34 Vintage Fleet

A record attendance at the recent S&S 34 Annual General Meeting agreed to establish a S&S34 vintage fleet along the lines of the Flying Fifteen Classic Fleet.

The first regatta will be named after Max Shean, a highly decorated World War II submariner, S&S 34 legend and winner of the 1979 Parmelia Race from Britain to Fremantle.

A minimum of 15 yachts will be needed to make the fleet viable and they must have the original keel and rudder configuration to be eligible.

All owners keen on participating are urged to attend a meeting at Fremantle Sailing Club on Monday August 29 at 8pm.

For more details, phone John Holder on 9332 1018, after 7pm.
