The capacity to share advice with other like minded individuals from inside the business is a key not to only creating suggestions on the best way to do things otherwise but to help reassure delegates that they’re not all facing problems that are unique to growing involvement in sailing. The sense of community is real at these occasions and that I support all those MNAs that haven’t yet filed to take action when they can. I enjoy seeing every single one of these in New Orleans in January.”

Sydney Sailmakers’ First Day Win

Following on from winning the NSW 12ft Skiff Championship in November, the in-form Nick Press/Andrew Stevenson pushed Sydney Sailmakers to a good start on Sydney Harbour in Race 1 of the 12ft Skiff Interdominion and galloped away to win by a huge margin.
Sailing from the start near Shark Island to the first mark, the Beashel Buoy in a building northeasterly on a wavy Harbour, Sydney Sailmakers initially led Brett Hobson/Brad Phillips sailing Geotherm (second at the NSW Championship) and the Kiwi entry, Little Bus (Chris Reid/Andrew Clarke).

The trio seemed to be extending away from the rest of the Aussie and Kiwi fleet competing in the 55th running of the annual stoush between Australia and New Zealand and held alternately in each country. Eventually Alex Vallings/Fraser Brown on C-Tech White (NZL) found the overtaking lane and left their countrymen behind on the run back to Shark Island, while Sydney Sailmakers distanced itself from the rest, her crew not putting a foot wrong.

By the second run to Shark Island, the seaway and increasing breeze had taken its toll, causing frequent capsizes and some breakages. Unlucky was one of the crew aboard Cougar, who after a capsize was struggling to move with a reoccurring pinched nerve and back problem.

As a number rushed to assist, Geotherm capsized and C-Tech White hit a mark, leaving the gate open for Little Bus to steam through, but there was no catching Sydney Sailmakers which stormed home to win by over two minutes to Little Bus. C-Tech White was third and an unhappy Brett Hobson skippered Geotherm to fourth.

Cautious as ever, Press said of their win: “In the end we had a good win. The first two works were tight with Geotherm and the Kiwis. We kept it simple and didn’t make any major mistakes and had some fun rides along the way. It’s definitely good to win – you can’t ask for a better start to a regatta.

Little Bus skipper, Chris Reid added:  “A perfect first day. We’re happy to kick off the Interdominion with a second.”

In response to Sydney Sailmakers’ big win, Reid said: “Every squirrel gets its nut and tomorrow is another day. Those guys know the Harbour really well, but I’ve sailed on it a few times too – and it’s anyone’s on the right day.”

Most chose to use their number three rigs, but the only female in the fleet, Adrienne Cahalan and her crew Brett Phillips on Chapman High Performance Sailing, went with the smaller number 4 rig and finished 20th.

“We had a good day, but we had a swim at Bradley’s Head – it was costly and shouldn’t have happened,” said Cahalan..

In all, six boats did not finish, putting them on the back foot for tomorrow’s Races 2 and 3, starting from 2.30pm.

The 12- ace 12ft Skiff Interdominion is hosted by the Australian18 Footers League at Double Bay, assisted by the Double Bay Sailing Club and will conclude on 10 January.

Fast Spinnaker Sailing

The whole 24 boat fleet in the Launceston could end by Monday having a race record additionally about the cards with quick spinnaker jogging conditions predict for all the way to Tasman Island.

The fleet had an easy run under spinnakers in Bass Strait along Tasmania’s northeast shore throughout today and by early last evening every boat had sailed through Banks Strait, the catchy passage involving the northeast east of the state as well as the Furneaux Islands and to the Tasman Sea.

Gary was seven nautical miles ahead of Peter Cretan’s recently acquired Marten 49 Rock.

“In case the prediction north west and westerly winds are kept I believe we are going to have the whole fleet completed during Monday, maybe even a race record,” Derwent Sailing Squadron sailing manager Mike Denney called this evening.

The primary boat must end before, to break the class record and 18 seconds, establish by Helsal 3 in the 2011 race.

From there the boats have appreciated a rapid spinnaker run across Tasmania’s northeast shore and by every boat had sailed the Banks Strait, passing just to the north.

At that period The Fork in the Road was nicely with less than 120 nautical miles, to sea of St Helens. Tilt, since Hobart yachtsman Peter Cretan for the first time purchased the boat lately being rushed by him, was in second place followed with several yachts that contained Allusive, The Protagonist and Infinity.

The outlook is changing to the northeast, that will empower the fleet to carry on to hold spinnakers for north to northwesterly winds of 15 to 25 knots and through the day.

Away-Piste won the AMS by being put on PHS, while Malcolm Cooper Snook 30 Kaiulani, observed its eighth L2H race corrected time brief sprint from Beauty Point.

Powys sailor Huw Farmer is just starting to fulfill with his assurance due to the prize of a boat that’s not old to honor his delight for the sport.

Having received the boat earlier this year Farmer has spent 2014 trying to build on that early development. His dreams have been fired by the prize get the Wales squads, and to go on as he gets old.

“My father sail as often as my parents will pick me. I believe weekends are sailed by us although I would like to sail every weekend.

It’s been a very busy year and that I’ve been to some great sailing clubs and made lots of pals which are not old.

“My father am improving. My father started sailing off and sailed in racing regatta silver fleet and in main fleet in the EOS – too as there is an enormous jump in skill now wanted, the primary fleet starts are amazing.

I want and am in a position to put issues where I’ve got used to everything – for me personally personally the sail was chosen for my weight, it is perfect. My father consider I have done – sailed and learnt more thanks.

Final Line Up For Extreme Sailing Series Singapore

Prediction is building towards the primary occasion of the 2014 Extreme Sailing Series supported by Land Rover to be held on the Marina Bay in Singapore, over 20-23 February.

I do not understand who is going to win total – which is how it ought to be.”

Australian international icon, Nick Moloney will leads the home nation representatives, Team Aberdeen Singapore, supported by Sponsor Site Partner Aberdeen Asset Management,. Asian Games keelboat match racing gold medallist, Justin Wong, among Singapore’s top Laser sailors, and local sailors Scott Glen Sydney, will go back to the fleet following an effective introduction in 2013.

The single skipper in 2013 to possess never raced in the Extreme Sailing Series is the Seve Jarvin of GAC Pindar. Jarvin will be supported by seasoned catamaran hands Sam Newton, match racer Troy Tindill, who sailed in the America’s Cup World Series with Artemis Racing, and part of the America’s Cup winning crew of Oracle Team USA.

Fresh from having won the Australian Skiff Championship, Jarvin remarked: “I am really new to multihulls, but the men I am sailing with have lots of expertise. Our primary strength is the fact that we’re a young team that are all great teammates and will be coming in as the underdogs.”

Having won the past two Series to The Wave, Muscat and 2013, Pete Greenhalgh will once more joins British Olympian Leigh McMillan. Match racer Kinley Fowler (NZL), who last year was part of the America’s Cup effort of Oracle Team USA will go back alongside his former Oman Air teammate, Nasser Al Mashari, to the Series. Britain’s double Olympic gold medallist Sarah Ayton will join up with the defending champs.

Ayton is more than prepared for the challenge of what she describes as the ‘most high performance’ sailing she’s ever done: “I am honoured to be sailing together with The Wave, Muscat and I’m truly excited about getting started.

America’s Cup victor Ernesto Bertarelli’s Alinghi returns expecting to rectify is among a small number of teams fielding the exact same lineup as last season, and losing the 2013 Extreme Sailing Series narrowly in the final minutes of the ultimate race of the entire year.

The teams’ fifth guy is going to be Australian foiling a novice for 2014 Moth sailor Tom Johnson.

35th America’s Cup To Be Held In Bermuda

As a host site for San Diego and the 35th America’s Cup Bermuda both have pros as well as cons that are distinct. Of the two Bermuda got thedailysail vote just as it’s the better wind conditions. Given the 35th America’s Cup is going to be waged in foiling AC62 catamarans, having the ability to race in adequate wind is going to be the event’s make or break. We possibly over-casually suppose the 35th America’s Cup is going to be an exact repeat of the crisis as well as the incredible high octane sailing we observed during the 34th last year – in boats which could be smaller, yet this time are goal-designed for (and having a rule that now supports) foiling. A big part of the spectacle of last year was thanks to the outstanding 15-20 knot wind states that consistently floated on San Francisco Bay. Seeing AC62s pulling their foils around a San Diego race track in low rider manner in 6 knots of wind as well as marginally foiling in 8, wouldn’t make for great television and almost the class there’s truly only just about large enough for the AC45s, let alone the brand new generation of 40 knot AC62 flying boats.

Volvo Ocean Race Campaign

It is the fourth Volvo Ocean Race because the two time Spanish strategies were called by 49er Olympic medallist in 2005 6 in the in-ports for Bouwe Bekking‘s illfated movistar effort. Since then the 37 year old Basque sailor continues to be team manager Pedro Campos’ ‘go to man’, co-skippering Telefonica Blue in 20089 with Bekking and skippering Telefonica in the 201112 race. Last time around Telefonica appeared to be living until the form guide when then won the very first three legs found her clear to the lead and set off as favourite. Martinez’s perspective is it was a case of the other teams catching upwards them. “Last time, Groupama made really great alternatives prior to the beginning, they had an excellent team and they enhanced a lot. They ended up very fast and it was really very hard for us, especially from upwind TWA. At 60-90^0 they were not half a nautical mile slower and we weren’t unable to fit them. Again Martinez refutes this: “many were sailing the 49er some days for pleasure, but we were doing virtually no Olympic sailing – we were completely focussed to the Volvo.
