The SCORA (South Coast Offshore Racing Association) Boat of the Year ‘Jellybaby’ Is Nominated for this year’s ‘Sailor of the Year’ award. After an immensely successful season on the water at local, regional and national events this Family run J122 40 footer has stood out amongst the fleet.
And this is exactly what Jellybaby encourages. The boat believes in a fully Corinthian ethos, in that all crew are either family or club friends. The boat is helmed by either Father Brian or son's Cian or David Jones. They encourage junior sailors from the club to get involved on JellyBaby to get the full cruiser/racer experience. Over 50% of the crew are under 25 and many have been sailing with the Jones’ family for many years now. Robin Lynch who was a mentee among the Irish Sailing Women in Sailing Mentorship Program also sails on this boat.
“This gives the boat a great energy and makes it great fun to sail every weekend” Brian comments
They had a great start in 2022 with a podium finish at Kinsale Yacht Club’s April League and winning Class 0 at WAVE regatta in June. Then subsequently ended the year with some great honours culminating in Royal Cork Yacht Club’s ‘Yacht of the Year’ and SCORA ‘Boat of the Year’ awards.
