Launched in December 2007, St Jude was the sixth Sydney 47 out of the mould at Azzura Yachts. She sailed her first offshore race in the 2008 Australia Day Ocean Pointscore Race to Botany Bay and return, and won on IRC. St Jude finished third in IRC Division of the CYCA’s 2010/11 Ocean Pointscore and following on from her PHS Division win in 2009/10 Ocean Pointscore. St Jude is crewed by a group of friends who, in various combinations have sailed together for many years.
Her best result in the Rolex Sydney Hobart was in 2009 where she finished fourth in IRC Division 2. Cornish’s personal record includes winning the 1999 Adelaide – Port Lincoln Race overall in his then Beneteau FC10, Subjude – a common theme for his boats, as his wife’s name is Judith.
