Second Day Of Final Series Of 29er World Championship 2018

The final series of the 29er World Championship was on during the weekend and the second day before the finals proved to be brisk and windy. The previous day the racing was cancelled at the breeze proved to be much above the wind limit of 29er with gusts moving at 50 knots and more.

The 58 teams that come in from 11 countries are now separated into two teams of silver and gold fleets. There is a total of nine countries now that are vying for the trophy which are Hong Kong, Great Britain, Canada, Russia, Slovenia, Australia, New Zealand and France. On the second day before the finals the sailors had to stay on shore till the breeze came down to a moderate level. Racing was then on, off the Stanley area with a north easterly breeze blowing with a speed of 22 knots.

One race was successfully completed as the breeze held and the lead kept changing. Teams pushed hard and tried to go faster. The pace was frenzied and the pressure also led to some teams losing control and capsizing even. The breeze kept building and in the second race, the fleet was able to get much headway. However, as the gusts increased the race was abandoned after the first lap was more or less completed. Into the final day the New Zealand team was found to be leading along with Hong Kong and France is close behind. Among these teams the Hong Kong team is a mixed one. The silver fleet was not in strength in this day and stayed on shore. In this category the Australian teams dominated in the first three positions. The finals are yet to be seen and known as to who would take away the prize which would be given out at the Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club.

Resuming The Sailors Of Next Generation

As the fame of age-based competition in the only youth institutional-type boats, introducing the young teenage sailors to other sides of the sport has become a challenge now.

Earlier what used to happened organically now requires the extra effort.

An example, one design classes have started programs to provide loaner boats to the qualified young sailors. The Lightning class boats was a leader in this movement, with sailor Miia Newman selected as a recipient of its annual boat grant 2017.

Newman says, “Sailing is a one sport, which could be competitive in the entire life. I love the fact that I am never supposed to stop, and I can always look forward to sailboat racing competitions and regattas as my getaways for the weekend. For me, Sailing is not just a hobby, instead it is more than that; it is a community. On weekends, when I travel to race, it is, primarily, an excuse to opt a road trip with a few of my close friends to go see my sailing family.” (more…)

Tracy Edwards Buys Back Yacht

Many sailors get attached to their boats and with good reason.

They are expensive and lifetime investments for many. Often, many are forced to sell off their yachts, either for economic reasons or to move on to bigger or better investments. Some, however, develop an attachment to their boat that remains even if they are forced to sell it off. For instance, Tracy Edwards, who is skipper for a world sailing crew, was reunited with a yacht she owned previously. Indeed, she admits that the selling decision had been forced by circumstances. This happened about 27 years back and today Tracy has been reunited with Maiden which is a yacht made famous on British waters. The yacht has taken out the first all female crew to cover the oceans of the world. It gained historic importance, but was left in a shipyard by the Indian Ocean. (more…)

The catamaran of foiling prototypes that this 130 crew member team is sailing is an 80 million pound investment by the Land Rover BAR team.

Best yacht racers in Victoria

Michael Brown, the Gladstone resident and former Port Curtis Sailing Club member, outclassed a world-class field to snatch his 6th Australian Impulse Championship Meet recently at the Gippsland Lakes in Victorian town of Paynesville.

Brown, who stays in Newcastle, used fast-start tricks, and they worked to ne plus ultra, on his boat named Z in the primary stages of the ten-day race. Speaking about his strategy, Brown told that it was very tight and he had the jump on Glenn quite early in the series where he won 4 of the first 4 races in the first 2 days.

He stated that this let him take control and he was able to stay ahead. He added that the wind dropped away during the mid-stage of the race that brought in new challenges. It was the toughest with the light winds in the middle and this was the toughest part, but he was at home when it got rough in the last 2 days.

It was his 2nd successive win after his victory in the series in Yeppoon previous year with a triple treats of victories in the 2000s.

David Mann of PCSC was the best-performed present Gladstone yachty, ending 6th (of 46) in his yacht, Tarfun, in the contest that began on 29th December and ended on Sunday. Three more Gladstone sailors, Ray Hobbs, John Ibell, and Maria Mohrholz, ended in thirty-fifth, thirty-ninth and fortieth spot respectively.
