Historical Details

In 1930 at the suggestion of Sil Rohu, Sydney's leading Gun Smith, Charles Sparrow, Naval Draftsmen, designed the first Vee-Jay (Vaucluse Junior) with the assistance of F. Sargent and R. Banks. The Vee-Jay was designed for two boys under the age of 17. In 1932 the Vaucluse Amateur Sailing Association (V.A.S.A.) was established. The members of V.A.S.A. then built the Vee-Jay prototype "Splinter". The first working Vee-Jay "Chum" was launched August 1931 and is currently on display at the Powerhouse Museum in Sydney. 1932 was also the year the Sydney Harbour bridge was opened.
