EventsRYA Scotland Winter Championships 2016

As sure as mince pies, frantic shopping and cheesy music the arrival of the RYA Scotland Winter Championships heralds the coming of Christmas. Hosted once again by Largs SC in conjunction with the Scottish Sailing Institute the event took place a week earlier than in past years to give an extra week for several classes to squeeze in one more Development Team Camp or Academy weekend before the Christmas break.

The weather gods must have approved of this move with the eighty sailors treated to perfect winter sailing conditions across the two days with a light easterly on the Saturday strengthening on the Sunday up to ten knots with bright sunshine giving some fantastic racing.

The cold temperatures reminded sailors that this was indeed a winter regatta with wrapping up warm the order of the day, no doubt helped by the Christmas hats sprinkled across the fleets. (See how many you can spot across the photos from the weekend). Special mention to Stuart Khaliq, Jamie Briggs, Matthew Mclullich and Christine Wood who all incorporated a little Christmas decoration to the rigging of the boats.

Optimist

A strongly fought competition between Optimist and Topper Academy Head Coaches saw the Optimists just beating the toppers to the honour of biggest fleet with twenty sailors registered. Strong growth in the laser fleet across the last year saw the fourteen lasers not too far behind the toppers in terms of fleet size.

Scott Forbes sailed a strong regatta only once off the podium, however tight racing ensued all the way down the fleet. The S-course caused a number of challenges for those less familiar with the unusual roundings, all good practice for those sailing in the strong tactical fleets at the big optimist championships. Alistair Coombs and Danny Scott completed the podium and amongst the girls new Development Team sailor Jasmin Robertson took the first girl prize with Kate Fowler and Anna Miller just behind. A special mention for William O’Keffe and Sophie Kennedy sailing in their first event in the main fleet.

Toppers

In a similar manner to the Optimists the topper fleet was won convincingly in this case by Lorcan Knowles travelling up to compete from the North of England but just behind him was a tight battle amongst the rest of the sailors. In the end Finlay Tulett and Alex Noble completed the podium for the boys with Suzie Homer and Catie Warburton splitting the two of them in a well fought competition. Special mention to Catie for embodying the reputation of the topper as the ‘friendly class’ by swapping boats with another sailor at the end of the Saturday afternoon to let them try out the topper as a possible next step from the optimist. Apparently the optimist she swapped into was smaller than she remembered so surely the boat must be shrinking.

Lasers

As the lone standard rig Alistair made the most of the event focusing on a series of process goals as well as battling with the leading radials across the short courses which were the order of the weekend. Amongst the radials it was a battle between young guns and old hands with experienced radial sailor Iain Duncan making the most of the stronger conditions on the Sunday to climb back up the leaderboard to third. Although this wasn’t enough to catch the pair of Harris Cartwright and Rory Harper making great progress in the class since transitioning into the boat earlier in the year. Harris took the class by a margin of six points over Rory. First girl was Christine Wood finishing in fourth position and most importantly the highest finisher across all the fleets to embrace the Christmas spirit with decoration for her boat.

Feva

Racing on Bravo course gave the fevas an opportunity to mix it up with the youth double handers in a combined start with the 420s and 29ers. Ben Leffick / Ben Entwhistle took no time to make their mark executing a clean start and ducking when boats where necessary on their way out to the favoured left hand size of the course and lead up the beat. With the rest of the fleet parked up on the right Ben / Ben had the honour of rounding the mark and hoisting just as the leading 29ers reached them and continued upwind to their own windward mark. They went on to post a clean scoreline of firsts for the Saturday. On the Sunday Aidan Dunn / Abigail Carrick made sure that it didn’t go all the Bens’ way with a couple of bullets of their own and keeping both boats on their toes were Nathan Leffick / Jamie Warburton.
420

With two boats competing it was a very exclusive event for the 420s with the added complication of 29ers and fevas racing on the same course to make life more interesting. Calum Bell / Josh Hale looked like they had started in fine form with a brave port tack flyer in race one crossing the fleet only to run out of breeze on the right giving Emily Biggar / Ana Scougall a lead they did not relinquish. After this Calum / Josh put together an almost flawless set of scores until the final race of the day where they were pipped once more by Emily / Ana. However the boys clearly enjoyed the windier conditions on the Sunday posting six firsts to take the event.

29er

For the 29er class this event also counted as Scottish Sprint Champs with all the crews eager to win this inaugural edition.

The weekend saw some tight racing across the fleet and some great blasting for all sailors on the Sunday with the boats racing just off the slipway giving a grandstand view to the gathered mass braving the cold at the waters edge or watching from the comfort of the club house. Right from the start a two way battle developed with Lucy Wilson / Alistair Ferguson sailing a great first day to lead overnight with a perfect score line from Bella Fellows / Anna Sturrock on the Sunday giving them the win.
                                       
Techno

Four sailors competed in the techno fleet across 5.8m and 6.8m sail sizes sharing the line start line with the RS:X sailors but sailing a shorter course around the inner windward mark. Rharaidh Somerville dominated the 5.8s with a perfect score line taking first place out of the technos given the better scoreline over Ariana Johnson who took the 6.8 class.

RS:X

A bit of swapping between classes saw the RS:X fleet swelling to four boards this with four sailors away at other sailing commitments. Over the course of the weekend the RS:Xs saw a full range of conditions from full on pumping conditions at on the Saturday to planning on the Sunday which saw the boards blasting around the rest of those on the course area. Natalie McWilliams showed her experience in the class to take the victory with a clean brace of firsts after her two discards.

For the rest of the fleet it was a tight battle all weekend with the remaining three sailors separated by a mere two points after the Saturday and only three points at the end of the weekend. Special mention to Sam Brown for a hard fought second place and great to see all sailors starting to get to grips with the RS:X so early in their transition.

EventsRYAS Champion of Champions Regatta 2016

The best Scottish dinghy sailors across sixteen dinghy classes took part in the RYA Scotland Champion of Champions Trophy at Largs Sailing Club over the weekend. The different classes of boat compete together, from junior to senior class champions they race to determine which class and crews are best.

The National 18 Ultra had the strongest set of results over the five races, winning three races in total under the Portsmouth Yardstick handicap system. As one of the largest boats in the fleet it required a three man crew, helmed by Stuart Urquart and crewed by his brother Richard Urquart and Martin Cruden all from Findhorn YC on the Moray Firth.

Stuart Urquart, who previously won the championship in 2013 commented.. “It’s been a great weekend, very cold this morning but once the wind settled in we had three good races. Good for a Sunday.” He continued. “It has been fantastic to win the event and well worth coming down. We thought it was a very well run event, but challenging for Race Officer today and the three races were very enjoyable.”

The local easterly breezes proved unsteady and at times brisk but rarely from the same direction. The race committee were forced to abandon the third race scheduled on Saturday after a memorable first race in almost perfect conditions of 12-15 knots. Racing started later than schedules on Sunday as a colder northerly breeze remained indecisive on a bright crisp autumnal day.

Calum Bell returning to the Topper class after his first few events in the youth 420 class earlier in the year managed to climb to 2nd overall and was the first single handed dinghy at the event. All the winter training in the Largs Channel clearly proved very useful for the conditions over the series.

He said. “I’m surprised and pleased with the result. I didn’t know what to expect as you don’t know what your result is until the very end. I had to remain disciplined and keep trying harder as you can’t compare yourself to the other boats in any way. Hopefully I’ll try it in the 420 next year.”

Viola and Michael Scott, sailing their Osprey, managed to claim third place after a consistent set of results, with last year’s winner David and Ian Kent sliding to 4th overall. The Women's championship (awarded to the best performing ALL female crew) went to Bess Homer in her Europe - congratulations to all the winners.

EventsRYA Scotland Zone Championships 2016

Saturday produced strong southerly winds averaging 26kts with gusts of 36kts and above. Unfortunately due to the high winds it was not possible to race so the decision was made to keep all fleets ashore for the day.  Whilst the competitors didn't get afloat for racing they were enthralled by RYA Scotland's V.I.P. guests - olympic sailors Luke Patience and Charlotte Dobson who gave inspirational talks and answered some questions from the young sailors about their experiences at the Rio Olympic Games and how they wotked their way into Team GBR.

Sunday delivered winds in the 17 to 22kts range but the sea state was still quite rough after saturday's gale, at least three races were completed for all fleets with some completing four - full results can be seen by clicking on the Results Tab above.

Luke Patience and Charlotte Dobson were along to encourage and boost the young sailors.  You can see a video they made in the Video tab above.

EventsRCSA Regatta 2016

Tuesday was a very difficult day on Loch Fyne with very light breezes which shut off completely during Race 1 resulting in a very long drift to the finish, which was shortened near Sgat Mor Island. The second race was started when the wind filled in for a brief while and this time the boats finished, again under a shortened course, just before the wind died off again.

Wednesday satrted off with almost no breeze in Loch Fyne so the fleet motored south until they met an 8 knot southerly wind towards the south end of the Isle of Bute, where the race was started. The competitors enjoyed a circumnavigation of Wee Cumbrae Island before finishing in the Largs Channel off Largs Sailing Club.

Thursday was a stark contrast to the previous days with southerly winds of over 20knots testing the crews over the two races that were held in the Largs Channel. Congratulations go to Voyager who won the regatta with consistent results at the front of the fleet accross all the races.

EventsLRW 100 Guineas Series 2016 supported by Cal Mac

This year's 100 Guineas Sereis was a windy affair with winds of 25kts recorded at least once on each of the race days, which was quite a contrast with Cumbraes Weekend which was largely a light wind affair. Unfortunately on Thursday the weather was a little too extreme for the dinghies and no racing was possible for them on the final day of the series. A depeleted keelboat fleet took to the water and completed a full Series of races - results for all the Classes can be seen by clicking on the results tab above.

Congratulations go to David and Ian Kent in their Hurricane 5.9SX who scooped up the 100 Guineas as best overall performer in the dinghy fleet, and Excalibur (pictured above) picked up the 100 Guineas cash prize for best overall performer in the keelboat fleet.

EventsOptimist Nationals 2016

Largs Sailing Club, Largs Yacht Haven and the Scottish Sailing Institute teamed up with the International Optimist Class Association (IOCA) to host the 2016 Volvo Gill UK National and Open Optimist Championships over the week of the 30th July to the 5th of August.
270 boats, split into Senior (U15), Junior (U13) and Regatta (U12) Fleets took part with 14 different Nations represented including elite competitors from the USA, Australia, Hong Kong, South Africa, Bermuda and Thailand along with strong representation from the European sailing nations. Largs offered a variety of conditions throughout the week as you would expect in the West of Scotland and 14 races were completed for all fleets in a variety of wind strengths from a light six knots to a fresh 25 knots providing a true test of the international sailors’ skills in all conditions.


Throughout the week the battles at the front of all the fleets were close and at the half way stage in the Senior fleet Australia’s Blake Wilson was in pole position closely followed by Ireland’s Tom Higgins. In the Junior Fleet Britain’s Kai Wolgram was holding a slender lead over Spain’s Jaume Alcover and in the Regatta Fleet GBR’s Nick Evans was just ahead of Ireland’s Russell Bolger. At the halfway point the competitors enjoyed a brief rest from racing but had a great time enjoying the hospitality of Largs with the Club laying on entertainment in the form of inflatable bungee runs and an evening ceilidh/BBQ.


On Thursday the competitors returned to the serious business of the championship and with another six races scheduled there was plenty of opportunity for the sailors further down the leaderboard to catch up with the front runners. The racing continued to be close with the leaders swapping places as the regatta progressed and going into the final race it was too close to call who the eventual winners would be - in such a competitive and large fleet it would only take one bad race to throw the Championship away. 
At the end of the final race in the Senior Fleet Tom Higgins (IRL) managed to take the top spot ahead of Blake Wilson (AUS) in second with Duncan Gregor (HKG) in third place, the top Scottish boat was Scott Forbes of Loch Lomond SC in fifteenth. In the Juniors Kai Wolgram (GBR) held on to take the win ahead of Freddie Lonsdale (GBR) in second with Justin Lucas (IRL) taking the final podium spot, the top Scottish boat in this fleet was Alastair Coombs of Loch Venachar SC in tenth place. The Regatta Fleet was won by Nick Evans (GBR), Russell Bolger (IRL) was second ahead of Jessica Riordan (IRL) in third and top Scot was William OKeefe in nineteenth spot.


All in all the regatta proved to be a great success thanks to the efforts of the 150 Largs SC, IOCA and Scottish Sailing Institute volunteers who worked very hard to make the event run smoothly from start to finish. The efforts of all those involved was appreciated by all the competitors, but was summed up nicely by some of our competing guests:

"Had a fabulous time.  Friendly people, helpful, supportive.  Thanks for making our trip a memorable one. - Cape Town, South Africa "

"Most welcoming.  Top class race management, very friendly and helpful staff and volunteers. - Cork, Ireland"

"Excellent venue.  Very hospitable and accommodating welcome.  Superior accommodation.  Thank you. - Severna Park, Maryland, USA"

"The members of your club are the most fantastic and welcoming people.  Thank you. -  Caernarfon, North Wales"

EventsGlengoyne D-Zero / Vortex Traveller Trophy 2016

The weekend saw a total of seven Devoti D Zeros assemble at Largs Sailing Club to sail in the inaugural Scottish D Zero open meeting and the second event of the Northern Travellers, the DZeros were joined by 4 Vortexes for one of their TT events. Boats came from various Northern Clubs and were joined by one boat from Isle of Man and three from Largs.


Saturday kicked off with a daunting 25kts and a threatening black sky, but by the time racing started this had moderated to 8 to 10kts from the south and a relatively flat sea. The 1/2mile beat which fed into a trapezoid course looked daunting to some of the pond sailors, but this didn’t stop some incredibly close racing with Mike Pridham (IOM SC) taking a first and two second places, with Ben Ratcliffe (the Northern D Zero Dealer) – 2,4 and Martin Latimer from Largs SC 1,3 snapping at Mike’s heels. Race three was a mixed affair Martin went right and Mike, Ben and the fleet went left, when they came back together Martin had a good lead. The weather played a cruel game and threw a torrential downpour, zero visibility, 17kt squall and a violent shift which had the boats planning into the windward mark. The rest of the race turned light and ultimately Martin’s lead was whittled away when Ben, Mike and Mick Green sailed straight past him in a different band of wind to take a 1,2,3. Mike held the overnight lead.


In the Vortex fleet Phil Whitehead took the first race ahead of Johnathan Carter, with Angus Winchester in third in what was a close contest. Race 2 jumbled the order a little with Angus in first place, Phil in second and Jonathan in third - keeping the scoring tight at the front of the fleet. It was during the start sequence of the third race for the vortexes that the downpour and accompanying windshift arrived which forced the Race Officer to postpone the start with only a few seconds to go, unfortunately the wind also died on the inner loop so a third race was not possible for this fleet. Phil held the overnight lead but was only a point ahead meaning all was to play for on Sunday. 


On Sunday the crews awoke to a fantastic sunny day, 16 degrees and no wind! However after a short postponement the racing got underway in champagne conditions. Race 4 saw Ben Ratcliffe taking a clear lead and by the first run no one could catch him. Billy McCarlie from Largs took a 2nd , in the boat he bought from Ben on Saturday with 3rd going to Mike. Race two and it was right that paid on the first beat and left on the 2nd - Ben took another resounding win and this time Martin Latimer snuck in ahead of Mile Pridham. The third race was to be the last of the day as wind turned light and flukey but the local boats found their way around the course well with Martin Faulkner taking the win followed by Martin Latimer and Billy McCarlie. (on reflection the prize for the furthest travelled should have gone to Martin Faulkner who in race three sailed the Great Circle route around the Largs Channel, seeming to cover twice as much ground as the rest and still crossing the line with a big lead).


In the Vortex fleet Phil dominated the day scoring a second and two firsts ending up with a comfortable lead over Jonathan who took second place by just one point ahead of Angus Winchester. Nick Fleming was fourth and showed a massive improvement over the weekend considering it was his first time racing the boat, but he did not quite make it into the top three - another race or two and things might have been different, keep up the good work Nick!


Thanks go to Largs Sailing Club and the Scottish Sailing Institute for organizing a small, but fantastic travelers event. Thanks in particular to Dave Kent and his team of volunteers for great courses and superb racing with some very bold race management. We hope to see many more DZeros at the Largs event next year (Maybe even a Scottish Championship?)


The weekend was a resounding success and the Bottles of Glengoyne 12yr Old Single Malt went to Ben Ratcliffe 1st Overall and Mike Pridham (2nd) for furthest travelled.

EventsScottish Windsurfing Championships 2016

The Scottish Windsurfing Championships came to Largs on 14/15th May.  The two day event saw the title Scottish title change hands for the first time in a couple of years and with some light winds and bright sunshine there was everything to play for.


Saturday saw some of the best windsurfers in Scotland and some very good sailors from the North of England come to compete at Largs, with racing taking place over three separate classes, Raceboard, Techno and RS:X.  The sun was out and the wind was light but there was enough wind to race in and it built slightly through the day.  By the end of Day 1 Erin Watson led the RS:X fleet whilst Issac Lines headed up the Techno Fleet, with Philip Haywood topping the Raceboard fleet going into day 2.


Sunday brought another sunny day in the Largs Channel with winds a little stronger than on Saturday allowing the completion of four races on the day, meaning that seven races were completed for the series. Competitors battled hard over the series and gave everything they could to win, there was some very tight racing in all the classes and the winning margins were quite small in the end.

Ultimately there had to be winners and it was Philip Haywood who took the honours in the Raceboard fleet counting a very impressive 5 victories over the 7 races, which would have been enough to win the Scottish Crown if only he was based North of the border.  Natalie McWilliams won the RS:X fleet whilst the Techno fleet with a total of 6 points overall was won Loch Inch’s Islay Watson who was the top Scottish based competitor overall, Islay dominated the Techno class and was awarded the Overall Scottish Windsurfing Championship Trophy for 2016.

EventsJP Watersports Scottish Tour RS200 Training & Sprints

The travelling series brought sailors from Kinghorn, Loch Lomond, Helensburgh and Port Edgar sailing clubs to Largs, which is now growing a very impressive fleet of RS 200’s for the JP Watersports Scottish Tour Sprints 2016.
With two days of planned sailing for the RS 200’s, the first day was spent with Robbie Burns with 13 boats training and honing the skills, tweaking and adjusting rigs to get the right settings in all conditions.  All the sailors enjoyed developing their skills in hope for the coming days racing. 

Day 2 was for racing and quick sprints were the order of the day getting in as many as they possibly could but the day started off very light and shifty and an AP was quickly raised to wait it out until the Largs easterly took hold.
Eventually at around midday the wind started to fill in and the competitors came out to the race area in the Largs Channel.  The short, sharp races lasted about 20 minutes each in the shifty conditions.  The wind shifted as much as 90 degrees during the day and then promptly moved back to its original position from the east.

Stuart Teasdale and Ashley Martin took the initial pole position in race one but it was Robbie Burns & Fiona “Lady Gaga" Simpson who took the lead from the second race onwards closely followed by Roger Carter & Rachael Cook with Martin Faulkner and Bill Forsyth taking the third place.  Shifting winds and big headers brought challenges for the competitors but the tight racing and rapid turnaround of races proved to be a winner.  The tour heads over to Port Edgar on 14/15 May for the next leg.

Congratulations to Robbie Burns and Vicki Simpson who took the 2016 Sprints title in a 17 boat fleet. The conditions were extremely shifty and tricky and required huge levels of concentration from all those involved, seven races were completed and full results can be seen by clicking on the above link.

EventsRYA Scotland Winter Championships 2015

88 boats from all across Scotland came to Largs Sailing Club for the 2015 RYA Scotland Winter Championships on the 12th and 13th of December, which was organised by the Scottish Sailing Institute. Ironically after nearly a month of near gale force winds, including 4 of the met office’s newly named storms, the weekend was plagued by very light breezes which made life hard for the race management teams. Fortunately enough wind eventually appeared on Saturday to allow at least three races for each of the eight different fleets with some completing 5 races. A very cold start to Sunday saw the competitors waiting on the shore for some wind to arrive, the younger sailors occupied the time by making snowballs from the frozen water in the bottom of their boats with some even managing to make mini-snowmen! A very small patch of breeze allowed  the handicap dinghy fleet to complete one very short race, before the wind disappeared again. After another hour of waiting the Race Officer decided to call it a day at 1:00pm, with no further races completed.
The Class winners were:
Laser Standard: Dugal Wilson, Loch Venachar SC
Laser Radial: Jamie Calder, Loch Tummel SC
Optimist: Gordon Cogan-Sivarajan, Clyde Cruising Club 
Topper: Lorcan Knowles
RS:X: Erin Watson, Loch Insh SC
Techno 5.8: Leonard Staber, Clyde Windsurfing Club
Techno 7.8 : Islay Watson,  Clyde Windsurfing Club
Handicap Dinghy: Ewan Wilson & Robbie Wilson, Wormit BC

EventsRYA Scotland Champion of Champions Regatta 2015

21 of Scotland’s best sailors came to Largs Sailing Club from as far afield as Shetland and the lake district to compete in the RYA Scotland Champion of Champions Regatta over the weekend of the 24th and 25th of October. This unique event, organised by the Scottish Sailing Institute, brings together the winners of the various Scottish sailing classes for an end of season shoot out to determine an overall winner. The boats that competed ranged from the optimist dinghy for junior sailors to the very high performance foiling moth which flies round the race track on a hydrofoil.
This year the winds were strong which resulted in some very challenging sailing for all involved. Three great races were completed on Saturday under the guidance of Race Officer Chris Nichol whose team provided an excellent variety of race courses that gave the sailors an opportunity to get the best out of their boats at some stage. The strong winds took their toll with one boat suffering structural damage to its mast, and a catamaran broke its main beam which caused the boat to break apart – fortunately the safety teams were on hand quickly to recover the boats and no sailors were injured. At the end of the day’s racing things were tight at the top with local team David and Ian Kent in their Hurricane 5.9SX catamaran holding a slim lead over the National 18 of Stuart and Richard Urquhart from Royal Findhorn YC, the defending Champions.
Sunday dawned with a building breeze which quickly increased to a strength which was only just sailable for these types of boat, and two more races were completed in the most challenging conditions. As the wind continued to increase the race management team wisely decided to call it a day before more boats were damaged, which was welcomed by some very tired sailors! The Kent brothers managed to hold on to their lead to become the first catamaran sailors to win this prestigious event in its 53 year history, the foiling moth of Paul Hignett was the first single handed vessel finishing in fourth place overall.
Results:
1st David and Ian Kent, Largs SC, Hurricane 5.9SX
2nd Stuart and Richard Urquhart, Royal Findhorn YC, National 18 Ultra
3rd Judy and Paul Armstrong, Scaling Dam SC, Albacore
4th Paul Hignett, LochLomond SC, International Moth
5th Martin Faulkner & Bill Forsyth, Largs SC, RS200

EventsScottish Skiff & Scottish Catamaran Championships 2015

Day 1 of the Catamaran and Skiff championships at Largs brought some light conditions.  The wind was steady from a south/south-east direction and in the catamaran fleet  the SSI's David Kent along with brother Ian took the lead, narrowly winning the first three races with results coming down to just a few seconds on corrected time.   The Skiff fleet enjoyed a great battle on the frst day with three different winners and the top three boats tied on points after 2 races. The third race of the day saw John Reekie take the pole going into day 2.

Day 2 saw a little more breeze and the Kent brothers continued their form from Saturday by winning the remaining 3 races to retain the Scottish Catamaran title overall.  Howard Smallwood's Unicorn performed well counting 3 second place positions but it wasn't enough to catch the Kents in their Hurricane 5.9 SX.  Hugh MacGregor took the remaining podium spot in his single handed DX15 Uno.

John Reekie took the top spot in the Skiff Series whilst Andrew Hooton placed second.  The pair have just returned from the Musto Skiff world championships which took place on Lake Guarda in Italy and enjoyed the near perfect conditions at Largs.

EventsPEELPORTS Largs Regatta Week 100 Guineas Series 2015

Tuesday was a light and shifty evening but saw a record entry for the PEELPORTS Largs Regatta Week 100 Guineas Series with 13 yachts and 49 dinghies entering the series. Wednesday was a different prospect which started with a heavy downpour that killed off the 15kt southerly. After a short postponement the southerly breeze returned with gusts up in the twenties and a great race was had by all fleets. Thursday produced another fine evening of racing with strong southerly winds.

Congratulations go to Andy McDaid, pictured above in his laser, who won the 100 Guineas prize by the narrowest of margins (see the results for details).

EventsPEELPORTS Largs Regatta Week Cumbraes Weekend 2015

A weekend of two very different days. Saturday saw light and shfty breezes with regular wind shut offs and quite a few 180 degrees windshifts - a race officer's nightmare conditions! The race management teams worked very hard and must be commended for achieving at least one race per fleet.

 

Sunday could not have been more different with gusts recorded at over 40 knots which sadly kept the dinghy fleet ashore for the day. A depleted yacht fleet completed a single circumnavigation of Great Cumbrae, with one yacht being dismasted, fortunately without injury.

 

Congratulations to the crew of Sloop John T, pictured above,  who won the overall boat of the weekend prize.

EventsScottish Mortgage Investment Trust International Dragon Class Edinburgh Cup 2015

Julia Bailey Makes History At The Scottish Mortgage Investment Trust Edinburgh Cup 2015

For 66 years the names engraved on the Dragon Edinburgh Cup have had two things in common.  They are the names of some of the finest sailors in the world and they have all been men.  Julia Bailey was already recognised as a very fine sailor, but today she made history by becoming the first woman to earn the right to add her name to that illustrious list.  For Julia and her crew of Pedro Andrade, Keith Tippell and Will Heritage aboard GBR720 Aimee the victory must be made even sweeter knowing that they didn’t just win the regatta, the positively stormed it with a race to spare.
Whilst Aimee’s overall victory was secured early, the battle for the remaining podium places was only decided in the closing stages of the final race. Ultimately second place was secured by Mike Budd, sailing GBR793 Harry with Mark Greaves and Sam Gardner, who added a first and second to their scorecard to trail Aimee by two points. Mike and his team also claim the Corinthian Cup for the first all amateur crew.  Third place went down to a tie breaker with Martin Payne, Gillian Hamilton and Donal Small sailing GBR789 Bear, and Tom Vernon, Adam Bowers and Oliver Spensley-Corfield, both finished the regatta on thirteen points with Bear taking third place on count-back.
The regatta, hosted by the Largs Sailing Club in association with the Scottish Sailing Institute, was agreed by all to have been one of the most gruelling Edinburgh Cups in many years.  It opened with a near gale, lost a day through lack of wind, had a race abandoned because of the sudden appearance of a nuclear submarine and featured five of the most demanding races you could ever hope to experience.  For the 20 strong fleet from across the UK and as far afield as Japan it’s been a marathon and every race saw surprises and upsets as the crews took on the unique challenges of this stunning venue. 
After racing the crews came together for a gala prize giving dinner to honour their winners and celebrate the return of the Dragon Edinburgh Cup to Scotland and the Clyde after an absence of 12 years.  As well as the major trophies a number of special awards were also made including the Jordan Bell for the boat with the highest overall position that does not include a top 6 finish which went to Martin Makey’s GBR704 Ganador, the Classic Boat prize which went to Helen Horsfall’s GBR343 Whizz Too, the First All Girl Crew prize which was won by GBR509 Kismet’s Cathy Sedeworth and crew, and the Puffin Plate for the leading boat over 25 years old which went to Patrick Gifford’s Basilisk.  There was also a very special presentation to the best Scottish Country Dancer from Wednesday’s Scottish Night which was won hands down by Donald Milne of GBR790 Flotation!


Asked how she felt about her momentous win Julia replied, “Brilliant. It took a little time to sink in.  They’re a great team and I love to sail with them.  I’ve sailed with Pedro for the last ten years in all sorts of things and he knows my strengths and weaknesses and plays to them. We’re over the moon.”

Julia Bailey Claims Scottish Mortgage Investment Trust Dragon Scottish Championship In Largs

Twenty of the top International Dragon crews are gathered in Largs for the 2015 Scottish Mortgage Investment Trust Dragon Scottish Championship and Edinburgh Cup. First launched in 1927, the International Dragon is the world’s leading international keelboat and this week’s regattas have attracted competitors from as far afield as Japan.

After three days and five thrilling races the Scottish Mortgage Investment Trust Dragon Scottish Championship concluded on Monday evening with the trophy being awarded to Julia Bailey, Keith Tippel, Will Heritage and Pedro Andrade sailing GBR720 Aimee, who won three out of the five races.  Julia’s nearest rival was Martin Payne from Cornwall sailing GBR789 Bear with crew Gillian Hamilton and Donal Small, while in third place overall and winning the Corinthian Scottish Championship, for all amateur crews, Patrick Gifford of Angus sailing GBR515 Basilisk with his son Michael and Martin Spall.

For London based Julia her victory was particularly sweet as she noted, “My Grandfather Machlachlan would have been very proud to know that his granddaughter had won the Dragon Scottish Championship.”

One Tuesday morning the fleet will begin racing for the Edinburgh Cup, which was presented to the class by HRH The Duke of Edinburgh in 1938 and is awarded annually to the British Open Dragon Champion.  Racing will continue until Friday with up to six races scheduled.

EventsRYA Scotland Youth and Junior Championships 2014

The 77 junior sailors from every corner of Scotland enjoyed another picture perfect days racing on the west coast. A breeze of 8 to 11 knots from the south offered steady conditions to test the racing skills of the young sailors and windsurfers across all classes.

The windsurfers completed three races in planing conditions and the main dinghy fleet completed three races in advance of the scheduled shipping movements.

The regatta fleet really enjoyed the lighter airs, with Feva's pulling wheelies in between races. The Optimist Regatta fleet had sailors as young as seven enjoying a blast, and the RS Tera's and Toppers offered a dash of colour as they battled it out in their respective classes.

In the Topper class, Loch Tummel's Niamh Harper took a three point lead into today's racing, and did not disappoint, scoring two race wins and a fourth and ended up finishing five points clear of David Rosie, followed closely by Calum Bell.

In the Optimist, Harris Cartwright led after Saturday's racing and consolidated his lead on Sunday with two more race wins to narrowly edge Rory Harper into second and Hannah Scott in third.

"It was fun, a light wind day for people who like that and a heavy wind day for people who like that," Said Hannah Scott of the mix of racing conditions this weekend.

The 420 fleet saw Joanna Barrie and Joanne Foster leading on Saturday and they held to win overall in the face of a good day from Rebecca Bryant and Isla Harper, picking up two race wins.

On the Windsurf course Tristan Millidine continued his good form to win the 5.8 class. In the RS:X class Graham Brown also finished first overall.

In the competitive 7.8 class, Erin Watson, Isaac Lines and Andrew Brown all exchanged positions in the tightest racing of the weekend. In the end it was Andrew Brown who came out on top with Erin Watson in second and Isaac Lines in third.

Andrew Brown, winner of the BicTechno 7.8 fleet said of the event: "It's been great, a good mix of conditions with good tactical conditions today."

In the 6.8 Class Islay Watson showed her dominance winning six of the seven races to win from Maya Wylie. Islay also took the Windsurfing trophy for the best windsurf performance of the weekend.

In the regatta fleet the racing was tight and filled with lots of laughter. In the end, the Optimist class was won by Connor Kennedy, narrowly beating out Sam Carr from Loch Venacher. The Topper fleet was won by Alastair Kaliq and the Tera fleet won by Jamie Briggs.

The Feva fleet saw a real battle of the siblings with close racing all weekend. In the end the pairing of Gregor and Rory Angus beat Eilean and Ross Mauritzen by two points to claim victory.

Nick Scott, RYA Scotland High Performance Manager, said: "What a fantastic weekend of racing we have had. All the volunteers have done an amazing job in making the event run so smoothly. Not only that but the level of racing of these young sailors continues to impress and I am looking forward the future of Scottish racing."

EventsNeil Pryde Laser National Championships 2014

Day 1


Whilst the big boats competing in the Sevenstar Round Britain & Ireland race were postponed and the Merlin sailors in Looe were playing beach rounders because of Big Bertha the 150 Laser helms in Largs were kept ashore for lack of wind. Eventually in the early afternoon a Northerly breeze about 10-12 kts arrived to allow all three fleets to complete two races in a fine Scottish drizzle. All starts used a common trapezoidal course laid near Great Cumbrae.
There is a very healthy percentage of youth sailors in the Standard fleet this year and it was Ireland's youth sailor Dougie Power who took the first gun ahead of Alistair Goodwin & Anthony Parke. Jack Aitken, having finished 4th in Race 1, then showed the others the way home in the 2nd race to lead overnight.
Next away were the Laser 4.7 fleet and they also used the outer loop of the trapezoidal course but with a shortened windward leg. Nearly 40% of this fleet have made the trip across from Ireland and so it will be very interesting to see who wins out overall. The first race was a close run thing with the British pair Alex King & Aaran Holman just holding off the challenge from Ireland's Nicole Hemeryck. Aaran improved his place, by one, in the 2nd race whilst Alex had to be content with 3rd and 2nd overall.
With nearly 90 Radials entered the decision was made to split the fleet into two starts and race the first half of the week in a Round Robin format. If today's results are anything to go by this could be one of the most exciting week's racing for a long time. Each start had a different winner and at the end of the day three helms, Jon Emmett, Scotland's Jamie Calder & Ireland's Liam Glynn; were all tied on three points.

Day 2


Conditions were undoubtedly tougher for all the competitors today as the tail end of the bad weather swept across the north of the UK but there were not the excessive gusts that the GP 14s suffered in Ireland. We hope that everyone over there is now fully recovered and their championships continue successfully.
Overnight the wind had backed to Westerly and, whilst the mean wind speed was about 20 kts, the gusts were up to 24 kts and the lulls down to 10 kts. The change in wind direction was a definite advantage enabling the Race Officers to complete two races for all the rigs. The start line was laid just off the clubhouse, to the delight of the spectators, and the trapezoidal course was laid in the channel with the windward marks towards Great Cumbrae, giving as much shelter as possible.
All fleets used the outer loop of the course which helped with the allocation of safety cover and as a further precaution and, to give greater safety cover, the racing sequence was extended with only two fleets racing at any one time. Read this slowly as I shall write it only once. The Standards were called afloat first and started in their first race. Then the Radial Blue Fleet was released and started. With the Radials on course and the Standards finished Race 1 the sequence was repeated. Standards started, Radial Blues finished and then started their Race 2. Standards finished Race 2 and sent ashore thereby releasing the Laser 4.7 fleet to race. Finally the Radial Yellow fleet went afloat & raced and apart from a couple of facial injuries and a small amount of broken gear everyone was back in time for tea.
The front runners in the Standard fleet had a very mixed day. There were race wins for Cameron Tweedle & Sam Whaley but the most consistent sailor was junior helm Hamish Munro with a 2, 4 scoreline. With four races completed the first discard is allowed and this has enabled Alistair Goodwin to discard his Race 4 8th place and lead overnight from Sam Whaley. Quite often the Laser 4.7 fleet has one helm that tends to dominate the fleet. This year looks as if it may buck the trend. Irish sailor Nicole Hemeryck sailed extremely well today to win her first race and come 2nd behind 14 yr old Milo Gill-Taylor in the other race but both Arran Holman & Alex King are also sailing very consistently and only a couple of points separate all three.
The Radial Blue fleet starts were comparatively peaceful affairs compared to the rush of blood to the heads of the Radial Yellow fleet helms where both their races saw boats excluded by the 'black flag' rule. The most notable names were Irishman Liam Glynn in the first race and Jamie Calder in the second. Jon Emmett & John Booth are still slogging it out, as they have been for over a season now. Both raced in the Blue fleet today and ended with a win & a 2nd place apiece to share the top of the leaderboard. They are joined on 4 pts by Jamie Calder, who like Liam has discarded his black flag result. Liam brother's Ryan is one point behind his sibling on 6 pts. All very, very close.
The evening's 'entertainment' was the Association AGM followed by the NeilPryde Draw and the new Laser sail from LaserPerformance was won by family member Marshall King from Royal Lymington.

Day 3


The sun didn't shine on Largs today until racing was almost finished and the wind didn't blow quite as hard as yesterday so all fleets completed another two races in 'damp' conditions. The Race Team took all the fleets out into the main channel to the north of Gt. Cumbrae and they used both the inner and outer loops of the single trapezoidal course. The wind stayed at about 15 – 20kts at 260 degs for the whole time but started to fade as the last fleet was finishing
After the first General Recall by the Standards PRO Ken Falcon brought out the Black Flag for the rest of the day and there was a steady trickle of transgressors in all the rigs during the racing, including one hapless but unnamed 4.7 helm who managed a double black. Talking generally afterwards Ken remarked that in strong breeze conditions races are very rarely won on the start line and with virtually no tide during the first start sequence he was surprised at the number of boats caught OCS (& black flagged).
When the Standards did get away Alistair Goodwin improved his overall position by taking the first gun ahead of Finn Murphy (not Irish) with Ireland's Dougie Power 3rd ahead of Sam Whaley. Alistair couldn't repeat his success in the 2nd race slipping to 7th behind the winner Jack Aitken. Anthony Parke put behind him the disappointment of an earlier black flag to come 2nd with Dougie & Sam again filling the next two spots. Alistair, Jack, Sam & Dougie are very slowly putting a bit of daylight between themselves and the rest of the fleet but with six races still to go anything could and probably will happen. In the 4.7 fleet Arran Holman had a day to remember as he took the gun in both his races but even these good results leave him just 2 pts ahead of Nicole Hemeryck and 3 pts ahead of Alex King who traded 2nd & 3rd places today. Milo Gill-Taylor is hanging on in 4th place overall.
The Radial fleet are still in their qualifying series, final day tomorrow, and if anything the battle at the top of the leader board is intensifying. After today's racing none of the top ten boats are counting a score worse than 10th and the makeup of this group is five GBR boats, three Irish helms and two Israeli sailors, who co-incidentally are the top two Lady helms as well. In the Blue fleet Jon Emmett and Jamie Calder led the way and had identical score lines with a win & a 2nd apiece. They remain tied together on 7 pts. Tim Brow has been quietly accumulating 2nd & 3rd places on a regular basis and he added two 3rds to his card and is 6th overall.
In the Yellow fleet the 'unluckiest' helm was John Booth. In the first race he crossed the line first but found that he had been awarded a 20% place penalty for breaking SI 10.7 (Holding area violations). Ryan Glynn (IRE) took 2nd with Oren Jacob (ISR) 3rd and another Irish helm Mark Bolger 4th. Oren then went on to complete a great day's racing by winning the afternoon race from John (Booth), Liam & Ryan (Glynn) in 2nd, 3rd & 4th respectively.

Day 4


Life became much simpler for everyone today. The sun came out, look at the images if you don’t believe me, the wind shifted slightly to the left (300 degs) and blew at a pleasant 15kts. All fleets went racing and completed two races each with only one boat called OCS during the day. PRO Ken had had a chat with the competitors at the morning briefing about the use of the ‘Black Flag’ after yesterday’s numerous ejections. (I always want to put the words black flag in apostrophes and with capital letters). The course was laid to the north of Gt. Cumbrae and with the exception of one General Recall for the Standard fleet’s second race it was great racing.

The Standard fleet has a new leader after today’s two races. Anthony Parke took the morning race ahead of Scotland’s Jack Aitken and Sam Whaley. Overnight leader Alistair Goodwin had his worst result so far in 12th place, now his discard. Alistair recovered well in the next race to finish 2nd behind Sam and ahead of Finn Murphy and Toby Woodings, whose 4th place was his best result so far. Sam has now moved into a 3 pt lead with Alistair and Jack tied on 27 pts apiece. After tomorrow’s first race a 2nd discard will be allowed and the top of the table could be even tighter.

The trio at the top of the 4.7 fleet are very slowly pulling away from the rest, although Milo Gill-Taylor is hanging on to their coat tails with another good scoreline today. In the morning race all three took the top three places. Ireland’s Nicole (Hemeryck) won from Arran (Holman) with Alex (King) 3rd and Milo was 4th. In the afternoon Ireland’s Rory Fekkes put behind him some his earlier disappointments to take a very good win with Abbie Back also coming from the middle of the fleet to take 2nd ahead of Milo (3rd) & Alex (4th). Arran used his discard to get rid of his 15th place. Least said, soonest mended. However, Arran does have a 2 pt advantage over Nicole with Alex a further 3 pts adrift with four races and another discard to come.
.
Now the Radials have finished their Qualifying Series they will race the final two days in Gold & Silver fleets with the two fleets split evenly at 43 boats each. The discard allowances now get a little more complicated (Oh Vey!). Unlike the Standards and 4.7s who, after 9 races, can discard their worst two scores the Radials are allowed two discards but only ONE from the final series of four races. This has been known to have a significant effect in past championships.

In today’s racing Jon Emmett and John Booth were both in Blue fleet whilst Jamie Calder, Ryan & Liam Glynn were in the Yellow fleet. John Booth took both winning guns in Blue with Jon Emmett coming 2nd in both. Behind this pair Oren Jacob & Tim Brow finished 3rd & 4th in the morning and 4th & 3rd in the afternoon. In the Yellow start Ryan (Glynn) recorded two 2nd places, Jamie (Calder) won the morning race and Liam (Glynn) took the gun in the afternoon.

Day 5


Thursday turned out to be a long day and, in the end, a rather disappointing day for some of the competitors. When the Race Officers went afloat in the morning there was NW'erly 7 – 8 kt breeze that looked to be fairly steady. With all the Lasers on their way to the start area the wind died completely and there was no alternative but to send everyone back.
For the next couple of hours it was just a matter of sitting & waiting. After a late lunch the wind returned from the same direction, 300 degs, and at a healthy 10 kts. Racing got underway and for the majority of the afternoon went well. During the second race the arrival of a large dark cloud from the north presaged an increase in wind speed to 14 kts but then, as the Standards & 4.7s were finishing their race, there was a massive wind shift from 300 to 110 degs. The Radial Gold fleet was badly affected by this change and there was an appeal for redress by a group of the worst affected.
In the Standard fleet Anthony Parke scored his 2nd win of the week in the first race ahead of Oliver Davenport & Geoffrey Sherwood. Alistair Goodwin edged Sam Whaley for 4th place to keep the pressure on the leader. With nine races completed the 2nd discard kicked in and, whilst not affecting the top of the leader board too much, it undoubtedly helped Sam to consolidate his position when he won the 2nd race of the day. Oliver had another 2nd place ahead of Craig Williamson in 3rd. Jack Aitken & Alistair rounded out the top five places. Nothing is clear cut but almost certainly the winner of this fleet will come from the top 3; Sam, Alistair & Jack. It will depend on who makes the least mistakes, as usual.
The Laser 4.7 fleet were also relatively unaffected by the wind shift. In the first race Alex King took the gun ahead of Ireland's Emily Hill, her first top 5 finish of the week, with Milo Gill-Taylor 3rd and two more Irish helms Ben Martin & Anna McNulty filling out the Top 5. For the 2nd race the wind had moved enough at the end for the boats to have to beat to the finish line but the order had already been established and the results were fair. Arran Holman held off Alex for the win. Ireland's Rory Fekkes finished 3rd ahead of Josh Haynes, recovering from a poor patch in the middle races, and Nicole Hemeryck. Again it is hard to see the winner coming from anywhere but between the top three; Arran, Alex or Nicole.
The next fleet to finish were the Radial Silver fleet. Hamish Eckstein had started the day with a small lead over the others. He widened the gap further when he won the first race. He was followed home by another youth sailor Hugh Braidwood and junior helm Jack Shepherd. In the second race the PRO decided to shorten the race after three legs as the wind had shifted and was fading. Sawa Tretyakov took the gun but, unnoticed by the finishing recorders, Hamish had already rounded the mark and was on the next leg. Hamish requested and was granted redress. Sawa retained his single point score, which lifted him to 4th overall. Hugh came 2nd (5th o/a), Will was 3rd (2nd o/a). Hamish goes into the final day's racing with a 30 pt lead and would need a disaster to be overtaken.
Today was the start of the final series for the Gold fleet and matched all the top sailors for the first time. John Booth has been sailing extremely well all week. Even Jon Emmett admitted that John was probably the fastest boat in the fleet and, apart from his blemish in Race 5, has scored nothing but ones & twos. It was the same in the first race John takes the gun ahead of Jon. Ryan Glynn maintained his 3rd place overall by finishing 3rd. The fun really started in the last race. With the fleet well into the race the 180 deg wind shift caused major upsets. To quote from the bible, Mark 10:31 "But many who are first will be last, and the last first." After everyone had come ashore there was a 'mass' request for redress and after due consideration by the Protest Committee a Solomon like judgement was made to retrospectively abandon the race and hope to re-sail it tomorrow.
At the end of a long day afloat the day still had more to offer. After the Protest Hearings, by popular request, Jon Emmett ran a master class for a large audience and then followed that up by acting as Draw Master for the Harken prizes and the second Laser sail. He was so tired after all this extra-curricular activity that he had forgotten the name of the winner by the time I caught up with him late into the night.

Day 6


In a week that started with the aftermath of Hurricane Bertha and then gradually moderated until by Friday there was just enough breeze to allow all four fleets to get in the two races necessary to complete their full racing programme. Only the Radial Gold fleet 'lost' a race on Thursday evening.
The titles in three of the fleets was not decided until the Friday's races. Only in the Radial Silver fleet had Hamish Eckstein a comfortable lead over his rivals going into the final day and he further improved his score line by winning both of his races. It was also consistent results on the final day that gave Scotland's Jack Aitken (R.N.C.Y.C.) the Standard title, Jon Emmett (Weir Wood) the Radial title and Arran Holman (Hollowell) the Laser 4.7 title.
Although numbers in each fleet were down this year it was good to see a strong contingent from Ireland on the water and whilst not taking any of the major prizes they were well represented at the top of each fleet. There were far too many prizes handed out to list them all here but they and all the rest of the results can be found at the UK Laser website under the Results button.
The Association would like to thank the club and all its staff and volunteers for their organisation both on and off the water. This year's social events were really good. In particular, the sell-out Bar-B-Que and Grand Draw on Thursday evening after a very long day afloat was well worth staying for. Thanks also to Chairman Ken Falcon for acting as PRO and Dot Beadsworth and her team for doing all the admin. Finally but by no means least of all our sincere thanks to NeilPryde for being the Title Sponsors and for committing to next year's Nationals when the class return to the South Coast, also thanks to Harken UK for staying on board as the Equipment Sponsors. Both these companies' contributions added to the 'overall experience' of the competitors' week.

The Scottish Sailing Institute would like to thank all the competitors for attending the event and to all of our volunteers, wet and dry, for all they have done this week - THANK YOU!

EventsFlying Dutchman World Championships 2014

The 2014 Flying Dutchman World championships came to a close with the Hungarian pair of Szabolcs Majthenyi and Andras Domokos taking first place in the final race and continuing their series of great results throughout the week long regatta. It wasn’t all plain sailing as they reached the first windward mark in sixth place but their superior boat speed allowed them to battle their way to the front by the end of the race finishing ahead of Italian brothers Nicola and Francesco Vespasiani  by  around 25 seconds. Third place in the last race went to defending World Champions Enno Kramer and Ard Geelkerken from the Netherlands who were another 45 seconds behind. This race was sailed in North Easterly winds of 15 knots with gusts up to 20, but as the tail enders crossed the finish line the breeze started to fade, and continued to do so until it reached only five knots with large shifts of up to 90 degrees, making the start of a second race impossible.


Overall Majthenyi and Domokos dominated the regatta counting five first places and one third to win by a comfortable margin of eight points ahead of defending world champions Kramer and Geelkerken who in turn were five points clear of the Vespasiani brothers in third position. The Vespasiani’s  were level with the German pairing of Kay-uwe Ludke and Kai Schafers on points, but the Italians won out on the tie-break courtesy of their win in Race 3.


All in all the 2014 FD World Championships was a great event which without doubt tested the skills of the sailors in generally windy conditions with the majority of the races seeing strong winds at some stage. The World Champions certainly deserved their win and the fleet will be looking forward to their next Worlds in Sydney in January 2015.

EventsNorth British Police Regatta 2014

1 North British Police Sailing Championship 2015 Report


This year was my first year as organiser and I was faced with a daunting task.  Colin Gilmour stepped down after ten years of great organisation and growing the Regatta to the successful, highly popular event it is today.  Colin, Lynsey and Arthur left a great legacy and were certainly a tough act to follow. 
To help me in this feat, I managed to rope in Ally Sievewright with his Bavaria Ilha do Mel to provide committee boat, skipper, assistant race officer (although I had failed to mention that bit), adviser, and general all-round support.  Ally selflessly gave up his time and his boat and without him the Regatta would not have run.  Thank you Ally, I am eternally grateful.  Race Officer David Kent, of the Scottish Sailing Institute, provided all the race instructions and courses and was also always on the other end of the phone for advice and support, as well as collating and publishing all the results.  Thanks to David and Ally the racing ran relatively smoothly and I learnt so much – Thank you both. 
The Commonwealth Games had a big impact on our numbers this year, with only one full serving crew.  First years in retirement seemed to make another big hit with a number of skippers choosing the Med over the Clyde – I can’t think why!  Two late Irish entries added to the numbers – and the craic – and we had ourselves a decent sized fleet which equalled the PSUK Nationals.  For competitiveness and fairness, the fleet was split into a Spinnaker Fleet and Restricted Sail Fleet.  It seemed that the fleet was fairly closely matched this year with each yacht having a near equal to have an interesting tussle with.  The exception was Salamander XXI who sailed mainly out on its own with a few interesting races to the finish with the committee boat!
Sticking with tradition – and Colin’s good advice – the fleet gathered in Troon Yacht Haven over the weekend.  It was nice to see old friends arrive and to meet new faces.  Bob Stone had decided to get extra competitive this year by bringing along his two sons.  The family Stone proved a force not to be reckoned with; next year they are threatening three generations!

Race 1
The curse of the first day continued with light winds forecast for the longest race.  We managed to lose Stooriefit to a blocked heads tank and almost lost Somerled after they were severely ‘Bobed’ the night before!  However, there was enough wind for a start and with the wind behind it wasn’t long before the spinnakers were out and Salamander XXI and newcomer Chala started pulling away from the fleet. 
Time was ticking on and by the time we reached Ardrossan the wind had dropped and it looked like we needed to shorten the race to get everyone to Rothesay in time for dinner.  As soon as the call was made the wind picked up to 15knts and we suddenly had the whole fleet hurtling towards having a good old race.  So much for my crystal ball!  Salamander XXI took line honours, closely followed by Chala then Salamander.  A fantastic performance by Inspirit saw them come second to Lady Naomi in the adjusted results for the restricted fleet.  It was also during this race that the committee boat’s week long engine problem started: we weren’t sucking enough water and were just chucking out clouds of steam.  The fleet had a lovely sail to Rothesay whilst we limped on to Port Bannatyne where we were met by engineers arranged by Iona and Starkle.  We sat in the sunshine whilst the engineers fruitlessly took the engine apart until Iona came to our rescue and rushed us to the welcome buffet held by the Victoria Hotel.

Race 2
The committee boat motored around to Rothesay for a slightly belated skippers brief.  We started yet again in light winds for the first race from Rothesay up the East Kyle for a finish before the Burnt Isles. The Spinnaker Fleet had the advantage at the start but Salamander XXI got everything right for the best position by far.  Chala and the other Salamander were next, with the latter trying to get a closer look at the committee boat as she passed.  Ocean Wave had a great start despite restricted sail, closely followed by Lady Naomi.  Once again our crippled engine was no match for Salamander XXI who sprinted away to the finish.  The rest of the fleet weren’t far behind and we all managed a finish in pouring rain.  There were a few close finishes with Salamander pipping Chala by just a few seconds in the Spinnaker fleet and Te Luath just edging out Lady Naomi in the Restricted Sail.  The rain stopped and it was a nice sail or motor through the Burnt Isles to pick up a mooring for lunch. 

Race 3
The second race of the day was started in a decent 10-15 knot breeze, with close quarter tacs in play which were a pleasure to watch.  Following a theme however, the breeze dropped and it seemed like the fleet would never get out the West Kyle.  Yet again Salamander XXI was the first to exit but then seemed to stop as Buoy 47 was tantalisingly close.  After an age, it was a welcome sight to finally see masts poking out above the Kyle.  Once round the buoy it was a different matter!  The wind picked back up to 15-20 knots and the race was on. 
Once we neared Sagat Mor the wind increased to 20-25 knots and the committee boat had an enjoyable race with Salamander XXI.  We had both sails up and our engine on, yet the big Salamander was still gaining on us, forcing us to set a finish line before we were caught. 
The strong breeze provided great racing between individual boats with a few little tussles going on within the fleet.  A duel between Scimitar and Lady Naomi saw the West York’s crew having to do an emergency tack as they pushed for course over the Lancs. team, although they swear they were just trying to get a closer look at Martin’s house!  The heavier boats loved the big winds with Ocean Wave and Te Luath taking second and third over the line. 

Race 4
The third day finally provided some consistent wind when the Fleet set out for a race around Inchmarnock Island.  Te Luath made an excellent start and were first over the line with Inspirit and Ocean Wave hot on her heels.  The spinnakers were in play again with Salamander using her three sails to make ground on Starkle’s good start before apparently losing the wind.  The same could not be said for Somerled who had her spinnaker out early and powered away from the rest of the fleet. 
An enjoyable race was had by all with Salamander XXI again taking line honours.  The fight for second was close again, this time with Te Luath just piping Ocean Wave over the line.  The windy conditions ensured a close fleet and everyone had plenty of time to enjoy the glorious sunshine in Portavadie.  The weather had been booked to compliment the Mexican night that saw some splendiferous costumes from Lady Naomi which added context to the magnificent buffet. 

Race 5
The previous night’s tequilas were not enough to delay the start of a long race from Portavadie around Garroch Head and back to Rothesay.  The wind was questionable but we got a start in a good 7knts.  Before long the front runners were off in a good 15knt breeze, with Salamander XXI easily outrunning the still crippled committee boat and Ocean Wave keeping close to their heels (in a very long stride kind of way!).  It seemed like we would finally get a good long passage race.  Not so.  The back of the fleet had been hit almost from the start with the dreaded doldrums, this eventually moved up to the front and it seemed like Inchmarnock had sucked up all the wind.
The “race” was kept going as wind could easily be seen coming off Arran, alas it kept dying before it could reach the fleet and enliven the race.  A finish line was put in place just off Inchmarnock, yet reaching it seemed like an unlikely feat as the boats bobbed away in 0-1knt of wind.  Despite the agony, some fascinating tactics were on display.  Chala showed its skill and class in its first regatta by taking line honours in the testing conditions, with Ocean Wave over first in the Restricted Sail. 
As was the theme of the week, the longed for wind arrived as the last boats were crossing the line and most managed a lovely sail round the head for a late arrival in Rothesay.  The woes of the day were soon forgotten with a therapeutic pontoon party to liven things up. 

Race 6
A poor forecast of 2-4 knts led to a postponed start and a much needed lie-in.  Two yachts decided to retire early due to work commitments and the passage back to Ireland but the rest of the fleet lined up for a start in a good 5kts.  Inspirit got in perfect position and were first over the line by a good way.  The race for overall winner of the Restricted Sail was on and it was evident that all was to play for in this final race with Ocean Wave, Te Luath and Lady Naomi all jostling for position.
Salamander XXI and Ocean Wave were battling it out until the strong breeze hit and Salamander was away in 15kts of wind.  Just to conclude the week the way it had begun and continued, the wind died and a shorted finish line was put in place.  Salamander XXI’s great burst of speed saw her with enough breeze to cross the line with a great time.  However, the wind went with her and the rest of the fleet were left to drift to a finish with three yachts deciding to retire.  Ocean Wave were tantalisingly close to the finish when the wind died to finish an hour after Salamander had crossed.  The rest of the fleet had hit the doldrums early with Te Luath finishing next an hour and a half later.  Triffic 2 braved it out ‘till the end and managed a finish before the day’s time was up. 
All races completed, the Fleet retired to Largs Sailing Club for a fantastic buffet and the prize giving.

Thanks
I have already stated what a daunting task organising the North Brits was – not least because I know very little about sailing other than how to make gin.  There were many times when I thought I couldn’t do it, it would be a disaster, nobody’s going to come and why on earth am I putting myself through all this stress – even during the first race!  I have to say, now it’s done, it was all worth it and more.  It’s such a joy to see everyone muster from all over the country and join together in the spirit of the event. 
There are a few people who need to be thanked for their help and support in organising this event. 
First and foremost, thanks must go to Colin, Lynsey and Arthur for making the event what it is.  They have grown the event to what it is today and it is the spirit that they brought that makes the North Brits what it is.  I would like to thank Colin for setting me off in the right direction and for giving me this amazing opportunity. 
I would like to thank the Scottish Police Sport and Recreation Association for their help with funding and arranging a last minute emergency finance meeting when I was panicking I wouldn’t be able to afford to run the Regatta. 
Howard Fisher not only provided me with my most important ‘lead’ (David Kent), he also provided me with never-ending support, steering me in the right direction and spurring me on when I felt helpless.  I hope one day he gets to attend the event to see why it means so much to me. 
As a non-sailor – no, not even competent crew! – I could not have managed any of the ‘racing bits’ without the help, guidance and leadership of David Kent, Scottish Sailing Institute.  David provided the courses, the racing props, the sailing instructions, the results software, the final results, the website – pretty much everything.  He also provided much needed support and re-assurance in the run up to and during the Regatta, helping me make difficult decisions and preventing me from having a nervous  breakdown – thank you David. 
I could not even conceive of this event running without a committee boat and I had no idea of how I was going to get one.  Luckily I have a great friend.  Ally Sievewright has no involvement with the Police (that he admits), does not race and certainly doesn’t hire himself out for skippered charters.  Amazingly, he agreed to give up his time and change all that to lend himself and his boat for this event.  I cannot be more grateful to Ally for what he has done and only hope he can bring himself to put up with me for another week to do the same next year!
Lastly, I would like to thank all of you.  It’s the spirit and fun that you all bring that motivated me to ensure this event continued.  The thought of seeing everyone getting together and sailing in this beautiful part of the world is inspiration enough.  I was truly humbled by the generosity, in words as well as gifts, that you all afforded me and completely overwhelmed.  It’s not often that I’m lost for words but I was simply bowled over by your amazing speeches and compliments.  The stress of organising completely dissipated – of course I’m doing it again!
Thank you so much to all that attended.  See you all next year!

EventsGP14 National Championships 2013

Many congratulations to Ian Dobson and Andy Tunnicliffe who won the 2013 GP14 National Championships. Second Place went to Tom Gillard and Tim Hartley and third were Mike and Liz Senior.

The final day of the GP14 Nationals up on the west coastline of Scotland at Largs SC on the Firth of Clyde, saw some excellent racing from 1st to 47th place as the fleet were taken back out into the main channel, the westerly breeze forcing the PRO's hand as the narrower channel, where racing had taken place on the previous three days was too affected by Gt Cumbrae Island.

Race 8 – Sponsored by Creation Covers & HD Sails

The wind out in the main channel was by no means perfect, swinging by 45 degrees causing start line nightmares for the race team; far too much bias whichever way the pin end buoy was dragged, resulted in the black flag being brought out, just to get the fleet away. All knew it was not the start line that was at fault – it was the huge variation in wind direction. Three of the top-end boats who were looking to consolidate their positions in the top ten were binned; time to "make hay" for their closest competitors. Leading the way at the front end were Dobson & Tunnicliffe, closely followed by the Seniors, Gillard & Hartley just behind. A 40 degree shift, the top two covering each other allowed Dave Young and Nicola Booth to leapfrog the lead three, a position they were not to relinquish, the breeze settling at 45 degrees from the initial direction, leaving a follow my leader last lap. The Goacher/Duffin pair of Dobson & Tunnicliffe took second which, if my maths was any good (!!!), gave them the Nationals crown they last won in 2010. Second overall was also confirmed as Tom Gillard and Tim Hartley with their P&B powered Winder, third being Mike and Lizzie Seniors HD driven Boon. Three boat builders, three sailmakers completing the top three. Make of that what you will.

The "real" racing in race 8 however was for the top ten places overall, Chris White & Rich Booth had their best result of the week in fifth, putting pressure on those just ahead of them on the leaderboard, inclusive of those three who'd black flagged themselves. Ed Dutton & Rich Hales, under self-induced pressure to win the silver fleet, got their first top ten of the week to pretty much seal their victory too. Richard & Alex Tomlinson also got their best result coming home in an excellent 11th.

So going into race 9, the final top ten placings and the Bronze Fleet were where the main battlegrounds were. Lead contenders in the Bronze were Angus Winchester & Colin Quint, Rob Hicklin & Mark Fleming, and Angus Cambell & Gary Lewis. A good finish in the last race would've given any of the three victory. The final top ten shoot out was between six boats, spread by less than 10 points. It was gonna be close.

Needless to say, Dobson & Tunnicliffe won the race. The top ten battle went to the final mark rounding where a stray rudder pin cost Sarah & I that elusive 10th, letting through 7 boats in the final 100yd reach, all seven were also vying for those precious few points. Heartbreaking.

The Bronze battle also went to the wire. A couple of places either way and the Hicklin/Fleming duo would've had it, only to be denied by a resurgent Winchester & Quint who squeezed in with a couple of boats to spare.

What a great week of racing, all nine races held in a wide range of conditions, some amazing photography from SailPics, Fotoboat and JoshKerr providing conclusive evidence that the GP14 fleet is where to get extremely close, enjoyable racing; Gill Beddow and her committee putting on yet another excellent championship, building up to the Worlds in Northern Ireland in 2014, Barbados in 2016.

The prize-giving on the Friday saw well over 120 people piped in to a Ceilidh Evening where prizes were awarded to a range of categories, from lead young pairings (Sam Blocksidge & Connie Hicklin) to the oldies (Brian Willis & David McFarland), old boats (Donald Giles & Matt Lanigan) right through to the top sailors with their beautifully crafted racing machines. Leading the way as the top female helm was Mandy Mitchell, John Close as her crew; lead female crew taken by Lizzie Senior sailing with Mike; lead U18 helm was Megan Hicklin crewed by Hayley Ramadhar, giving us one of the most memorable images of the week after their 11th in race 4.

Regular readers will know we are extremely grateful to our event sponsors: Gul, BoonBoats, Creation Covers, HD Sails, GingerBoats, Goachers, English Braid and Tunnocks. Thank you all for your support.

EventsVolvo Gill Optimist British National and Open Championships 2013

The first day of racing at the Volvo Gill Optimist British Open and National Championship started with rain and light wind, around 4 knots, gusting 8 however the wind increased throughout the day and the sun came out offering good sailing conditions for the 302 boat fleet.

The two main fleets, split into ‘Senior’ and ‘Junior’, enjoyed three races each, however the conditions proved too challenging for the three Regatta fleets, ‘Racing’, ‘Coaching’ and ‘Mini Racers’ with their third race of the day cancelled due to the stronger forecasted wind.

‘There were really mixed conditions today, for our first three races in Largs. It went from really light winds, where we were all just sitting in our boats, to quickly changing to strong winds where you had to hike out. But, I had a good day and I am 11th overall going into day two and I am really looking forward to the week of racing and sailing the best I can.’ Commented ‘Junior’ fleet’s Hayden Swell, who claimed the highest ranked Junior sailor at the Volvo Gill Optimist Inland Championship in May.

The young sailors enjoyed a special visitor to kick-start the annual regatta; double Olympic gold medallist, Shirley Robertson. Shirley, originally from Dundee returned to Scotland to join the young sailors on the water, passing on all her tips and knowledge “this is my first visit to a Volvo Gill Optimist National Championship and I didn’t really know what to expect. However, I managed to get a glimpse of all the fleets racing today and they were all fantastic, it’s great to see so many young sailors on the water, at the same time, enjoying fun, but competitive racing.

The level of confidence and determination I saw from the sailors was truly amazing. It’s clear that they really know their stuff! I wish them the best of luck for the rest of the regatta.”

The afternoon offered a stronger tide and wind that were favored by many of the classes’ more experience sailors. In the ‘Senior’ fleet, 2013 Optimist Worlds team member, Milo Gill-Taylor, 13 (Spinnaker Yacht Club) who finished top of the ‘Junior fleet’ in 2012 had an impressive day placing three top three positions. Royal Lymington Yacht Club’s Hattie Rogers, 13, sits in second place overall, finishing within the top ten in all three races. Spain’s Albert Gelpi, 13, who finished 18th at the 2012 National Championship, sits in fourth after winning the second race.


In the ‘Junior’ fleet, Vita Heathcote, 12 (Royal Lymington Yacht Club), enjoyed the first win of the day and Spain’s Arnau Gelpi, 11, brother of Albert, enjoyed the two other race wins and sits in first place going into day two. Freddie Longsdale, 9, (Papercourt Sailing Club) sits at the top of the ‘Regatta Racing’ fleet.

 

Sun, wind and more testing conditions on Scotland’s west coast at day two of the Volvo Gill Optimist British Open and National Championship. Once again all three races were completed for the ‘Senior’ and ‘Junior’ main fleets and the regatta ‘Racers’ managed two.

 

The day started with a light breeze but conditions became tricky towards the end meaning the sailors had to pull out all the tactics and knowledge learnt in the previous day’s racing. The sailors were also challenged with the infamous Largs tide, pushing them harder during racing 'today was really up and down, the conditions were patchy and challenging plus it was physically demanding because of the chop. But, it was still really enjoyable sailing!' Commented ‘Senior’ main fleet’s William Heritage,13,(Gurnard Sailing Club)

Double Olympic gold medallist, Shirley Robertson joined the young sailors back out on the water and was impressed with the talent of sailing across all the fleets “Scotland was at its best today, with wind and sun and by 10 am everywhere you looked there were little white sails, it’s a great sight to see.

“I am still so surprised by just how professional and talented the top end of the fleet is and that drive, enthusiasm and passion is evident throughout the 302 young sailors racing. It was another day of great racing and great fun, wish I was 30 years younger and 30kg lighter!”

After six races Milo Gill-Taylor, 13, (Spinnaker Yacht Club) still remains top of the main ‘Senior’ fleet, with a 17 point lead over Spain’s Alberto Gelpi, 13 (C Nàutic EL Balís). Fellow Optimist World team members, Benno Marstaller, 13, (Restronguet Sailing Club) and Robbie King, 14, (Royal Lymington Yacht Club / Warsash Sailng Club) sit respectively in third and fourth place.

In the main ‘Junior’ fleet, Optimist European Team member, Vita Heathcote, 12, (Royal Lymington Yacht Club) had another fantastic day on the water with two race wins seeing her move to the top of the fleet with a 21 point lead. Julia Mellers, 12, (Chichester Yacht Club) and Spain’s Arnau Gelpi, 11, (C Nàutic EL Balís) sit in second and third. 10 year-old Drew Gibbons from Redesmere Sailing Club is leading the Regatta ‘Racing’ fleet after winning the last race.

 

Largs delivered sunshine and light winds today [Wednesday 30th July] for the 302 sailors competing at the Volvo Gill Optimist British Open and National Championship. The lack of wind, around 5 knots, saw the main ‘Senior’ fleet manage two races while the main ‘Junior’ fleet just the one after their attempt of a second was abandoned.

"The conditions today were fairly light with shifty winds and it was very important to watch the cloud cover. But, the sailors have performed well so far, there’s been some great racing and lots of fun!" Robbins Burns, Scottish Optimist coach.

Half way into the event, Milo Gill-Taylor, 13, (Spinnaker Yacht Club) continues to dominate the main ‘Senior’ fleet with a 20 point lead over Spain’s Albert Gelpi, 14, (Club Nautic El Balis) "there have been really light winds this week but the conditions have still been difficult and challenging. It is a huge fleet and the start lines are very long but its been good, it’s cold but nice to race here in Largs, it is a lovely location although a bit of a trek from the South Coast!" commented the Optimist Worlds Team member.

Fellow Optimist Team GB member, Robbie King, 14, (Royal Lymington Yacht Club/ Warsach Sailing Club) had a great start to the day, winning the first race leaving him in third place over all and Hattie Rogers, 13, (Royal Lymington Yacht Club) remains the top girl in the fleet sitting in fourth place after winning the day’s second race.

Royal Lymington Yacht Club also have another sailor excelling in Largs, Vita Heathcote, 12, remains on top in the main ‘Junior’ fleet "Largs is a great location to race at and it is fun to sail here. It’s also nice to be here racing with lots of other sailors from different countries. The week has been very tiring so far but fun and challenging at the same time" Julia Mellers, 12, (Chichester Yacht Club) sits in second place and Rhys Lewis, 12, (Cardiff Bay Yacht Club) in third place.

The three regatta fleets; ‘Racing’, ‘Coaching’ and ‘Mini Racers’ enjoyed a break away from competing with a pirate themed ‘sail away’ day to ‘Treasure Island’.

 

The penultimate day of racing at the Volvo Gill Optimist British Open and National Championship and the young sailors battled the elements to compete in the heavy showers and strong winds. After yesterday’s light wind the race committee were determined to make the most of the stronger conditions and despite gusts of around 27 knots, both the ‘Senior’ and ‘Junior’ main fleets managed three races each over the course of the day.

The windy, gusty conditions caused some problems on the race course with a number of capsizes across the fleets in the first few races of the day but, the sailors remained upbeat enjoying the racing "the conditions today were a lot tougher than yesterday, which meant everyone had to hike out the whole race making your legs burn! But downwind was really fun because you got to go really fast!” Commented main 'Junior' fleet’s William Heathcote, 11, (Royal Lymington Yacht Club) whose sister Vita is leading the fleet.

Milo Gill-Taylor, 13, (Spinnaker Yacht Club) continues to lead the main ‘Senior’ fleet however, the gap between first and second place is close with fellow Optimist Worlds Team member, Robbie King,14, (Royal Lymington Yacht Club) just 13 points behind. Spain’s Albert Gelpi, 14, (Club Nautic El Balis) ended the day in third place while Hattie Rogers, 13, (Royal Lymington Yacht Club) remains the top girl in the fleet sitting in seventh place.

Vita Heathcote, 12, (Royal Lymington Yacht Club) remains on top of the main ‘Junior’ fleet with a 24 point lead while James Harris, 12, (Bristol Corinthian Yacht Club) sits in second and Rhys Lewis, 12, (Cardiff Bay Yacht Club) just two points behind in third place.

Despite the change in weather IOCA (UK) Chairman, Simon Rogers commented on a great day on the water "The day started pretty choppy with wind against tide but as it went on this moderated off a bit but was overall fairly challenging for the sailors with lots of capsizes across the fleets. All in all though the kids have done really well and had a great day and it's been a fantastic championship so far! "

After a 'Pirate' themed away day yesterday the regatta fleets were raring to go and two races were sailed. Going into the final day Drew Gibbons,10, (Redesmere Sailing Club) sits in first place and Oliver Evans, 10, (Royal Victoria, Yacht Club) second. Joshua Thomas, 10, (Burghfield) sits in third place while Molly Bowman, 10, (Aldeburgh) is the top girl in the fleet in tenth place.

 

The final day of racing at the Volvo Gill Optimist British Open and National Championship and the young sailors took to the water in sunshine and strong winds of around 23 knots. The wind was always forcast to strenghthen and by the time the first race of the day for each of the Seniour and Junior fleets was completed the wind had increased to consistently over 25knots so the Fleet was sent ashore. Congratulations to the following sailors who came out on top over the 12 Race Regatta which offered a variety of conditions meaning that the best all round sailors came out on top:

Milo Gill-Taylor seals Senior championship with a win. Robbie King finishes second ahead of Albert Gelpi in third and first overseas boat. First senior girl is Hattie Rogers.

EventsThe Fife Regatta 2013

Fife Regatta 2013 sets sail - Race 1 Report

The 2013 Fife Regatta, celebrating William Fife’s Classic yacht design, set sail  for their first race of their week tour along Scotland’s Clyde coast.  This is the fourth Fife regatta which will see some exciting racing from some of the best known Fife yachts.  Put these beautiful yachts against the stunning backdrop of Scotland’s west coast and you have a recipe for one of the top, classic sailing events of the year.
Astor, Latifa, Kentra are some of Fife’s finest along with smaller yachts such a mignon which was created as a scale model to create the famous Shamrock which completed in the Americas cup.  Astor was built for the first Commodore of the Royal Prince Alfred Yacht Club, Sydney, and this is her first time back in the Atlantic since her delivery to Australia in 1923. She has competed in and won the America Schooner Cup five times in succession.  She has also won the Newport Harbor Yacht Club’s Opening Day Race eight times.  She has been based in the Pacific for and has come back to the Clyde to celebrate her 90th birthday which is a great honour for the Fife Regatta Committee.  The skipper kindly invited double gold medallist Shirley Robertson onboard as she is attending the regatta to compose a legacy film piece for CNN.


The race started in a south westerly with light, challenging conditions and throughout the day local knowledge came into play.  The Truant, skippered by Ross Ryan of Crinan Hotel, took the early advantage from the tide close to the shore.  As the breeze built the 8 metre Saskia, moved out ahead and her crew of upper Clyde sailors applied their skill and experience of their home waters to their advantage.  In class three, the smaller Fifes, were in close competition and at the end of the day Mignon, owned by renowned yachting journalist Bob Fisher, secured first place.  Among the Mignon crew is Largs based sail maker John Highcock whose local knowledge of the Clyde waters would be invaluable.


With a great day’s racing, circumnavigating Great Cumbrae was an excellent way to kick off  the event.  The results of the day represent the local input with Class 1 winner Saskia, Class 2 winner The Truant and Mignon leading Class 3.  Tomorrow the yachts will cast off and race to Rothesay before venturing through the Kyles on Monday.

 

Wooden Classics in the Hand of Nature - Race 3 Report

Latifa’s  splendid port tack start across all of the other  Class 1 yachts was an enthralling beginning  to another day of racing for the Fife Regatta.  Competitors from as far as Italy and California dressed for Scottish Sailing in full waterproofs and had a true experience of our west coast.  The strong south westerly breeze reaching 30 mph at times gave exhilarating sailing for those on board and spectacular sight for those watching from the shores. 

Class 1 and 2 boats left behind the lovely villages of Kames and Tighnabruaich after a superb visit.  The village had hosted a BBQ, wooden boat skiff rowing races, a meal for 100 guests and a ceilidh.  Yesterday  a sunny cruise was enjoyed through the scenic Kyles with boats cross taking through the ‘narrows’ on their way from Rothesay.  John Aitken sailing onboard Solway Maid described it as “fantastic and an absolute privilege.” CNN camera man has been thrilled by his experience of classic yachts in Scotland and loved Sundays sailing when “Mother Nature took charge and gave dramatic sailing.”

Mother Nature influenced class 3 today and their race was cancelled due to the strong winds and sea state.  Prior to this announcement, Ayrshire Lass,  the oldest of our fine Fifes had set off having made her decision to cruise to our destination, Portavadie marina.  At 126 years she was the first to reach Portavdie after  four hours of sailing, loving every minute of it and feasting on a fine supply of Glasgow made Tunnocks treats.

The Scottish owned, Saskia, the elegant 8m pure racing boat, has achieved some excellent results, but due to other racing commitments at Cowes this weekend, she is unable to complete the regatta and sadly we have to say goodbye to her tomorrow.  

The famous dragon emblem of Fife’s creations has been much admired and being worn with pride by all competitors and supporters of the regatta.  Commemorative clothing is available through the regatta shop at Portavadie and Largs Yacht Haven for the remainder of the event.

Tomorrow sees a well earned lay day where crews can explore the local area, take a trip on the paddle steamer Waverley or simply take pleasure in visiting each other’s yachts.

Class 1 winner was Latifa, the first of the regatta, now lying second overall.  Class 2 continues to be closely contested between The Truant and Mikado, with Mikado claiming first place.

 

Fast and Fyne -  A Classic day sailing - Race 4 Report

A sail to be remembered was documented today for all involved in race 4 of the Fife Regatta.  Pushed to their limits these boats showed how a century of  the exceptional skills of William Fife created strong, efficient and majestic vessels.

Leaving the shelter of Portavadie Marina they gathered in Loch Fyne with sun peaking through dramatic skies reflecting beautifully off the varnished decks of American yacht Astor as she set off in her quest of victory on Independance day.  Waking to a day of sunshine and wind between 15 – 20 kts is very pleasing for a sailor and most were not disappointed.

Latifa and  Kentra  powered through the start line giving a fine spectacle of classic quality.  Continuing with her were class 1 boats Sonata and Solway Maid.  These yachts share the same hull design but differ in their rigs.  Sonata is the only yacht with an Aluminium mast and was completed in the 1950s with this more modern approach.  Solway Maid having recently been lovingly refurbished was looking stunning surfing downwind with her spinnaker flying requesting everything of her crew onboard.

Class two boats followed suit in wonderful breeze and were a splendid sight against the back drop of Arran and the mountain ridge of Goatfell and the “warrior”. Truant and Mikado were tussling it out at the front of their class with incredible boat handling and making exceptional speeds.  Challenging each other with their sail plan Mikado remarked later in the sailing club bar that they used almost every sail they had and had not forseen so many sail changes to maximise on their days racing.  Asked to sum up the day they said “if the week hadn’t been extreme enough then today certainly topped it – it had everything”
The class 3 boats started separately in the East Kyle between Bute and Inchmarnock island.  Being an hour later they dovetailed into the race and enjoyed phenomenal sailing close into the Bute shore and across into the home straight to Largs.  It was not without eventuality as the breeze built with squalls exceeding 30kts.  This was on the edge for these small yachts and they were forced to tack round instead gybing in order cope with the power in the sail, the rig and the sea.  Oblio, owned by Gordon Turner, spectacularly took on the challenge of gybing and as an eye witness there were definitely a few wet wellies and assistance required from each other to keep all crew onboard.

Rounding the final headland of Millport Bay brought the yachts into more sheltered waters in the Largs Channel.  It is a welcome feeling after what was described by one competitor as a “screaming sail, the type that is a fine line between exhilarating and terrifying!”  It is without doubt that this will be a race remembered and talked about for a very long time and will find its own place in the archive stories of the great Fife yachts.

Results of Race 4 on the Fourth of July will give cause for celebration for Astor as she claimed 1st place and is tied on points with Latifa as they approach the final race of the series tomorrow.  Mikado scored first in class 2 and leads overall and Mignon won continues her winning streak in class 3 with straight firsts. 


Class 1: Saskia 4pts, Latifa 7pts, Astor 7pts
Class 2: Mikado 3pts, The Truant 5 pts, Viola 9pts
Class 3: Mignon 3pts, Coralie 6pts, Rainbow 11pts.

 

Sparkling Fife Finale - Race 5 Report

With moderate breeze the fleet cast off for the last race of the Fife Regatta 2013. With glistening seas they executed a race format known as the Kings Course dating back to 1891.  This is when the development of yachts in Scotland was gaining worldwide recognition and such prestigious yachts as Latifa, Astor and Kentra  are fine examples  of the William Fife legacy. Watching boats such as Tringa, built in 1904 sailing a course which unknown to us her predecessors may have done is moving. The small class 3 boats took the inner diagonal loop of the course while class 1 and 2 did an outer square starting and finishing in Largs Bay.  First boat across the water taking line honours was Mignon, 1898, co owned by Barry Dunning and Bob Fisher.  This was a great achievement along with her five wins in the series.  

This seven day regatta with 5 race days has been a wonderful collection of heritage and fine sailing and the Kings Course was appropriate to close the racing programme.  Event Director Fiona Houston commented “ It has exceeded our expectations and has been a privilege to have been involved in assisting these yachts return to Scotland.  For those fortunate enough to own or sail a Fife yacht it is super that they choose to accept our invitation to our event.”  

The final scores convey the close racing in class 1 with a single point separating winners Latifa (ITA), 8pts, and second position Astor (USA), 9pts. In third place was Saskia (SCO), 11pts, who had dominated in the early part of the week and despite having to leave in order to attend another event she remains on the podium.

Class 2 was won by Mikado (ENG) finishing on 4 pts followed by The Truant (SCO), 11pts and Viola (FRA), 11 pts.

Class 3 winner was Mignon (ENG), 4 pts, with Coralie (ENG),8pts and Rainbow (ENG),13pts.
The event concludes with a prizegiving party and we wait another five years when the Fifes may return once again to Fairlie.

EventsRYA UK Youth Championships 2013

Triumph for reigning RYA Youth National Champions

It was a day of triumph today (Friday 5 April) for four of last year’s RYA Youth National champions as they all reclaimed their titles on the final day of the  RYA Youth National Championships at Largs Sailing Club.

Ellie Meopham in the Laser Radial stole the show as the Welsh sailor not only finished top girl but dominated from start to finish topping the overall leaderboard by a staggering 30 points.

“It feels amazing to be honest! It has always been a personal aim of mine, I don’t want to just beat a couple of people, I want to beat everyone. I know that sounds really harsh but it’s true. It is a feeling of a job well done,” said Meopham.

“I only realised I had won the overall event when the Welsh Squad coach, Stevie, came up and gave me the results. I just wanted to cry! It made me feel really good and it’s so nice just to have a release from the tension from a week-long event. It just builds up and up even if you know it is likely that you will win there is always that thing in the back of your head, what if a black flag, what if I get disqualified, what if? It’s just so nice to have that lifted off my shoulders now and to have finally won!

The Laser Radial boys fleet was a tight affair with Welsh sailor Thomas Williams claiming the event victory on the final day of the regatta, finishing second overall. Williams stole top spot off of Edward Jones who led most of the regatta and managed to clinch the honours with a second and a discard of 31 in the two races completed today.

Williams said: “It’s been a pretty horrible week actually and conditions have been a nightmare but in the end it is all good and I’m very happy. Coming into the last day I tried to stay as calm as I could but obviously there is quite a lot of stress and you put a lot of pressure on yourself.  The key to my success this week was keeping on my toes. It is so changeable out there that whoever was most switched on was going to get the shift first and that made the difference.”

Georgina Povall finished second girl while Rheanna Pavey finished third girl in the Laser Radial.

In the larger Laser Standard class, Michael Beckett, last year’s champion in the Laser Radial, continued the Welsh dominance of the Lasers as he sailed  to an empathic 10 point victory over Henry Wetherell who finished second and Andrew Green rounding off his regatta in third.

In the RS:X Windsurfing fleet Kieran Martin and Saskia Sills were clinical in claiming consecutive RYA Youth National Championship titles.

“It feels amazing to have won the Youth Nationals’ for a second consecutive year,” expressed Martin.

“I now get the opportunity to go to the ISAF Youth Worlds again which is great! It’s been pretty challenging with the wind this week as it’s been all over the place so it has been tough racing.”

Martin was ruthless across the five days of racing picking up an incredible 11 race wins from the 14 races completed, finishing the regatta with a 19 point lead over second placed Joe Bennett.

“The key to my success has been keeping it simple really. It’s been a really tough week with my hands and feet really feeling the cold but it has all been worth it now as I have come out on top!

ISAF Youth Worlds Gold medallist Saskia Sills finished her regatta 23 points ahead of second placed Noelle Finch while her twin sister Imogen finished the week as third girl overall.

Sills said: “It is really good to win the RYA Youth Nationals again as it gives me a great chance to go back and defend my title at the ISAF Youth Worlds. After Tuesday, it gave me a wake-up call that anything can happen and if you are at the back of the fleet then you can either just sit there and follow everyone else or take the opportunities to bang a corner and get back to the front of the fleet. Tuesday was a massive learning point for me and since then I have just tried to stay consistent and not increase my discards.”

“I have been training since just after the last ISAF Youth Worlds really to make sure I qualify again so I’m really happy and looking forward to heading away to the sun instead of the 10 degrees and freezing weather we have had this week,” said Sills.

The 420 fleet provided the most excitement across the five days of racing with continual movement at the top of leaderboard. Tim Riley and Luke Burywood’s consistent set of scores was enough to give them event victory while Annabel Cattermole and Bryony-Bennet Lloyd finished third overall to take the female title.  Scott Wallis and Josh Voller finished their regatta off in second, four points off the event victory.

“It has been incredible. We were having our pictures taken earlier and it just made it feel so real that we have actually achieved it. We have been working so hard for it for so long and now it’s happened,” expressed Cattermole.

Bennet-Lloyd  added: “We came in this morning and thought that we could do it and beat the boys but unfortunately we had some tough last races and we didn’t quite perform as we wanted to in that last race so we finished third overall which we are happy with. We have a good points lead over the other girls so we’re really happy.

“It’s been quite a tough week. It is a really nice place to sail and the event has been well organised and I have definitely enjoyed sailing here.”

The 29er class saw a masterpiece in sailing in the shifty conditions from the events international competitors as New Zealand’s Marcus Somerville and Jack Simpson finished with an impressive score line. Mimi El-Khazindar and 2012 RYA Youth National champion Ben Batten finished second overall and top GBR boat ahead of Owen Bowerman and Morgan Peach in third.

“I’m really happy that we came away with a win. We were second coming into today so we have pulled it off so I’m pretty happy,” said New Zealand’s Marcus Somerville.

“The event has been run really well and they have made it feel like a major event which is great at a Youth event. We came away with the win which makes it feel even better. In New Zealand we had two boats trialling for the ISAF Youth Worlds spot last year and we had about 10 this year so there is a lot more competition here especially when there is around 50 boats. The UK competitors are really good and some are the best in the world so it’s good to see how we go against them.”

In the girls 29er fleet, Vikki Payne and Stephanie Orton have made it a hat trick of RYA Youth National titles as the girls from the South Coast finished seventh overall, nine points in front of Charlotte Hooper and Molly Brown in ninth, and second girls.

“Three years in a row, amazing,” enthused Payne. “I can’t even believe it. We jumped into the class and we have just loved every minute of it and to be able to come back saying that we are ladies youth national champions again is just unbelievable, we’re so happy!

“It’s been our aim, after we won it the first year we wanted to come back and do it again and to come back again has just been the icing on top of the cake. It has been pretty challenging and we have had moments where we got a little bit stressed out but luckily today we managed to keep our cool.

With this being the 29er sailors last year of Youth sailing, Orton added: “It is a fantastic way to end our youth sailing career,  we are looking forward to the last international competitions and nationals in the 29er and then we will be moving in the Olympic 49er FX classes.”

The Spitfire class has been a continuous battle from start to finish between Tom Britz/Abbie Hewitt and James Henson/Olivier Greber. Trading places thoughout the week, Britz, who won gold at the ISAF Youth Worlds in 2012, and his crew Hewitt kept a cool head going into today’s final races to clinch the under 21 championship title by a single point. Henson and Greber were crowned U19 champions on Thursday.

Duncan Truswell, RYA Youth Racing Manager, said: “Today has concluded a really exciting week of sailing at one of the UK’s great Championship venues, it has been cold, scenic, and challenging and the winners really deserve every praise as they have worked hard and showed a lot of character this week. 2013 was the biggest turn out ever fielded at this event hosted in Scotland, in addition to the numbers the standard continues to rise and the level of preparation, competence and skills of the whole of every fleet is way up on what I saw the last time we were here four years ago.

“I’d like to thank all the team up in Largs, and all the volunteers for delivering a great event in the most challenging of conditions. The sailors have been offered a great platform this week, a springboard to develop their skills and go on to top last year’s medal tally. I am confident that we are going to have another fantastic year and that many of these sailors will be occupying our Olympic Transition and Development programmes in the years to come.”

EventsRYA Scotland Spring Championships 2013

Unfortunately the 2013 Spring Championships had to be cancelled due to extreme weather - check out the video on the tab below the main image for a snapshot of the weather conditions we experienced that weekend.

 

IMPORTANT NOTICE FROM RYA Scotland

Following a review of the latest forecast from many different sources the difficult decision has been taken to cancel this weekend’s Spring Championships.

This decision has been taken because of:


• Winds forecast in excess of 50mph over the weekend
• Air temperature between -2 and 2 degrees
• Wind chill in excess of -15

With these factors comes a safety concern surrounding the extremely low temperatures and a very high probability that no racing would be able to completed given the forecasted wind conditions. As such we have taken the very difficult decision to cancel the event now and avoid competitors being required to travel to the event and spend a weekend on the shore. We hope that whilst unfortunate this action will minimise the inconvenience of a challenging weather weekend.

For those of you who are within reach of Largs, the RYA Scotland AGM will still be going ahead at the club and will have free food should you wish to come along. It starts at 1730 in the Hems Kalis Room.

RYA Scotland will be arranging for all entry fees to be reimbursed over the next week.

We are very sorry to have to take such steps but hope to master the elements for events later in the year.



Kind regards

EventsRYA Scotland Winter Championships 2012

The RYA Scotland Winter Championships took place in glorious conditions in Largs at the weekend (15 – 16 December 2012) with 68 competitors in 50 boats of five different classes doing battle for the yellow jersey.

The leader of each race was given the privilege of wearing the yellow jersey, much like a very well-known cycling event. Two races on the Saturday and three on the Sunday, with an excellent standard of racing throughout, meant the jersey changed hands a number of times over the weekend.  

Conditions were perfect for the youngsters with mild temperatures of 8 – 10 degrees each day and a perfect 12 – 16 knots of wind across all the races. With the event aimed at sailors under the age of 19, the championships are a fantastic opportunity for those training with the RYA Scotland Class Academies and also the RYA Scotland Development Team to work on their racing skills whilst receiving top level coaching on the water.

The 29er class saw some pretty competitive racing with yellow jersey holders Rory Hunter and Fraser Kitson Jones leading by just 8 seconds going into the last race. They ensured they held on for the win by forcing second place Gillies Munro and Daniel Harris to do turns and covered them all the way to the finish line to take victory by just six seconds overall. Gilles and Daniel took second place but would have been the overall winners on the traditional scoring system used for sailing events. Younger siblings to the winners, Cameron Kitson Jones and Neil Hunter, took third place.

The yellow jersey for the Laser class went to Calum Tait after winning one minute overall the races. Alex Still was the winning on the traditional scoring system whilst Jamie Calder put in an impressive performance to finish 3rd in what was his first event in a Laser Radial after making the move up from his Laser 4.7.

Alasdair Ireland and Ruaridh Mills had a battle on their hands with Ali Gray and Alan MacIntosh in the 420 class before they eventually took the overall victory both in terms of the yellow jersey and the traditional scoring by over one and a half minutes. Jo Barrie and Andrew Mitchel finished in third place.

The Topper class saw some really close finishes and top quality racing. Calum Rosie really shined on Saturday, winning both races. The Sunday however saw Iain Sword dominate with superb performances securing all three wins. It wasn’t to go all Iain’s way as an incident in race 4 meant he was disqualified and finished 2nd to Calum who took the win by 3 minutes. Anna Sturrock finished in third place.

The Optimists had a tricky start to the championships when in the first race all but two boats were disqualified for starting on the wrong side of the line in race one. The young sailors didn’t make the same mistake twice and results from the remaining races meant that Hamish Taylor took the win and the yellow jersey by 4 minutes. Rory Harper finished in second place and Fiona Mackay in third place.

On the Saturday evening Nick Scott, RYA Scotland High Performance Manager, hosted a Development Team reception and awards ceremony to recognise the achievements of the sailors, parents and coaches during the 2012 season.

“It has been a very successful season for Scottish sailors at all levels from Luke Patience winning his silver medal at the Olympics in the summer to Jamie Calder successfully moving up from the optimist class to the Laser Radial and many more great results in between. The championships have been a great success this weekend with some excellent racing in every class. We hope that the weekend of racing and coaching will encourage the sailors to keep training hard over the winter in preparation for the 2013 season,” commented Nick.

EventsVOLVO RYA Scottish Zone Championships 2012

RYA Scotland Volvo Zone and Home Counties Championship (Largs Sailing Club, Largs)

There were some tricky conditions for the Scottish sailors at Largs Sailing Club today with massive shifts in wind swinging from two knots up to 20 knots.

After a visit from Scottish Olympic silver medallist Luke Patience yesterday, the young sailors battled in the fierce conditions showing true grit and determination as they battled against the elements. The sailors managed to complete two races before all racing was postponed mid-afternoon.

Nick Scott, RYA High Performance Manager for Scotland, said: "2012 has been a great year for sailing in Scotland and it is great to have London 2012 Olympic silver medallist Luke Patience here to watch some fantastic racing. Sailing in Scotland has never been in a stronger position."

EventsAllen British Isles Flying 15 National Championships 2012

Tenth time lucky as Kneller and Lucas take the title.


After a day of big winds yesterday, winds peaked briefly at 6 knots then disappeared, so no racing was possible today, Monday 23rd, on the final day of the Allen Flying Fifteen Nationals at Largs.

The Championship rested on the first two days of racing, in particular on the two races on Day 2, when Simon Kneller and Dave Lucas from Grafham Water SC took a win and a third place in two tricky light weather races. Very few competitors managed two good results on a difficult day.

Kneller and Lucas, improving with every race at this event, thus rose to the top of the leaderboard, to take the Allen Flying Fifteen National Championships. Kneller and Lucas were sailing in their tenth successive National Championship, and it was tenth time lucky as they landed the title for the first time.

Just two points behind, three teams were tied on six points, but the tiebreak gave Steve Goacher and Phil Evans second place, with husband and wife pairing David and Sally McKee third. Fourth in a brand new boat, launched on the first day of the Championship, were Irish visitors John Lavery and David O’Brien.

They were one of three Irish visiting boats from Dun Laoghaire, who joined Scottish, English and Welsh boats at this Championship at Largs.

Fifth were Charles Apthorp and Jonathan Clark, from Hayling Island. All five leading teams have years of experience in the class, and collectively boast many Championship titles. Racing was thus very competitive in this quality of fleet.

However those with a more relaxed attitude were also catered for, with several Silver fleet (older boats) and Classics (vintage) boats enjoying the Championship. Alex Tatlow, who sailed in the Silver fleet said, “A Silver FF is the most economic way to have a competitive boat. Silvers give excellent value for money, and need much less maintenance than many other boats. My brother and I really enjoy sailing our Fifteen at events like Cowes Week, and at Championships like this.”

The Championship was well supported by sponsors, with title sponsor Allen supplying a generous range of prizes, while day sponsors Ovington, Goacher Sails, P & B and www.fotoboat.com added to the prizes. Loch Fyne supported a seafood reception and contributed prizes, while Loch Lomond Distillery provided very welcome liquid Scottish products.

This Nationals was a Qualifier event for the 2013 World Championships, and the final Worlds Qualifier event in the class will be the Scottish Championship at Loch Lomond on October 6/7, where a strong entry of over 30 boats is expected.

Events470 European Championships 2012

2012 470 EUROPEAN CHAMPIONSHIP WRAPS UP WITH GOLD TO CROATIA AND GREAT BRITAIN

Today, 4 July 2012, the 470 Men and Women Medal Races wrapped up the 2012 470 European Championship with five nations claiming the podium places – Croatia, Germany, Great Britain, Russia, Slovenia.

Sime Fantela/Igor Marenic (CRO) already secured their 2012 470 European Championship title yesterday, after winning race 12 which put them in an unassailable position.

Sophie Weguelin/Sophie Ainsworth (GBR) joined them as 470 Women European Championship winners today in a tense Medal Race sail off with four teams gunning for the podium slots

The top 10 teams on the leader board in the 470 Men and 470 Women fleets competed in the Medal Race double-points sail off, with the other teams racing a final race. All racing took place on course area B immediately opposite Largs Sailing Club in a windward/leeward format.

Light winds were the order of the day, in what was to prove testing for athletes and the Race Committee.

470 Men

With a night to sleep on their achievement of securing the 470 European Championship title for a second successive year, Sime Fantela was reflective today, “It is great. Yesterday was a bit strange to secure gold ahead of the Medal Race. We have never secured a medal ahead of the Championship finish at senior level. It was a different feeling than other wins.”

The Croatians had no pressure to deliver a top result in the Medal Race, but they always sail every race to win, so it was no different today.

There were two attempts from the Race Committee to get the 470 Men Medal Race completed, but the wind was just not going to play ball. In the first attempt, with the wind disappearing and the teams just about to round the downwind gate, the Race Committee signalled abandonment. Fantela/Marenic were leading.

A 180 degree change of wind direction and the second attempt to start the Medal Race also saw the lead in the hands of the Croatians during the second upwind, when again the race had to be abandoned.

In the dying wind the Race Committee had absolutely no option than to abandon racing, and comfort perhaps that at the point each of the races was abandoned, the positions of the teams in the race would not have changed the eventual outcome of medallists.

Commenting after racing, Fantela said, “Today was all about sailing and enjoying sailing without pressure. We didn’t have to worry about the result and taking care of our opponents. Today was all about tactics and strategy and watching the wind."

Looking forward to getting back home to celebrate, Marenic said, “Of course our friends and family will be at the airport and we will have light celebrations. It is before the Olympics that is why the celebrations will be light!”

And on the motivation their European Championship victory will give them ahead of the Olympics, Marenic continued, “This is a big confidence boost of course, but we will sail every race like it is the race. We will try our best and we have one month to get to know Weymouth a bit better.”

Sailing is becoming increasingly more high profile in Croatia as a result of Fantela/Marenic’s continued successes and the pair are this month featured in one of Croatia’s most popular magazines including a double-page photo spread. Fantela said, “Sailing is getting bigger in Croatia. In the Olympics in individual sports, sailing will have the most athletes. We want to promote our sport and sailing in Croatia and hope more kids, people, sponsors and the government get interested.”

At the start of the first Medal Race attempt, the eventual silver medallists, Ben Saxton/Richard Mason (GBR) looked as though they had blown it. A boat-to-boat infringement on the start line forced them to take two penalty turns and start well after the rest of the fleet who took the left side up the windward leg, with the British taking off to the right.

Saxton said, “The wind was fairly light, it looked difficult, we got a race off fairly quickly. We made a bad start, but we made a great beat and were winning. Then we were still winning at the bottom of the first race when the wind died and it was abandoned,” before concluding, “We are happy and we would have been whatever the scenario today.”

Mason continued by complimenting their main challengers, “The Russians have been our closest rivals this week. We made a good start on them the first couple of days and we had a big jump on them. Then they sailed an incredible middle half of the regatta and really came back strong and were ahead of us for a couple of days. In the end I wouldn’t say we tried to beat them, we weren’t racing hard against them until today. But we managed to stay in front of them and with the race cancelled today we finished second, so we were pretty happy. 2016 is our firm goal. We’ve got Luke and Stu to beat because they are going to continue and a couple of other good British boats. We are going to step our game up and hopefully go to Rio.”

The European bronze medallists, Russia’s Mikhail and Maxim Sheremetyev were thrilled with their result, which ranks as their best to date. Maxim said, “We are happy. I wanted second place, but we are happy. It is our best result ever.”

Next stop for the brothers, as it is for eight of the 470 Men teams competing in the Europeans, is the Olympic Games.

470 Women
With the top four teams going into the Medal Race all in contention for medals the pressure was intense. With a four point separation between the top three teams from Great Britain, Germany and Slovenia, and Croatia just slightly behind, there were quite a few scenarios which could have unfolded today.

The British win was by no means easy and at one point during the Medal Race, the Slovenians had the gold medal in their hands ahead of Sophie Weguelin/Sophie Ainsworth.

Ainsworth said, “We had a bit of a tense race, we didn’t have the best start and we were playing catch up from then on. But we knew the Slovenians were winning around the first windward mark and we managed to rein them in downwind. We knew we had the Germans behind us, and then on the last downwind the whole fleet came together and we had to get round before them and luckily we did. The Slovenians beat us in the race, but we had enough of a points margin that we won.”

“It was a bit of a test of nerves and we were both shaking afterwards with all the adrenalin. We are ecstatic that we came through in the end. It gives us a lot of confidence. We’ve been sailing well and hopefully we can repeat that at more events and work our way up and win more. Next it’s back to Weymouth, training with Hannah and Sass in the build-up to the Games. Hopefully we can help them win their gold medal at the Games and in 2016 hopefully you’ll see us on the podium.”

Slovenia's Tina Mrak/Teja Cerne sailed a stunning race to claim the silver. “It is a nice result, we are happy. For us the silver medal is like gold!” said Cerne. “Just a bit more and we could have beaten the British girls, but it is fine we are satisfied with our result. It was a good race for us in very difficult conditions, light wind and shifty so we had to be very patient and concentrate all through the race. This is the best result we have ever achieved and has given us a lot of self-confidence that we can sail well and improve places during an event. We are very optimistic going into the Olympics.”

Annika Bochmann/Elisabeth Panuschka (GER) struggled in the conditions to finish fifth and claim the bronze medal. Bochmann was frustrated with their start but delighted with the outcome, saying, “The start was very strange because of the current. Then the shift went to the right and the left end was favoured, so everyone wanted to start there. So we decided not to go left because there were too many boats and maybe a chance of OCS, so we tacked immediately after the start, but there was no shift on the right so we had no chance. Our goal here was fifth, and now we are third. This is our first medal at a senior event. Today we will celebrate with the team, but we fly home early tomorrow morning, so perhaps a bit more celebrating at home!”

Bochmann has made a name for herself in the junior 470 circuit with World and Junior European titles to her credit with her previous crew, including most recently gold at the 2011 470 Junior Worlds, silver at the 2011 470 Junior Europeans, silver at the 2010 470 Junior Worlds and gold at the 2012 470 Junior Europeans. After pairing up with Panuschka, their first Championship together was the 470 Junior Worlds earlier this year, where they claimed the silver medal.

The teams from Slovenia and Croatia are heading home for some rest, relaxation and sun, before they compete at the Olympics. For many of the other teams, they will next face each other at the 2012 470 Junior European Championship in Italy from 9-17 August 2012.

EventsRYA Scotland Champion of Champions Regatta 2011

Scotland’s equivalent of the Endeavour Trophy was sailed over the weekend 22/23 October at Largs. The Scottish Champions of Champions event was sponsored by online company insurance4dinghies, and organised by RYA Scotland.
Classes were invited to send their Scottish champions, and Scottish Traveller series winners, to this invite only event, which is sailed in the sailors’ own boats. There was an array of classes on display in the 26 strong fleet, from an Optimist to a Hurricane 5.9SX. 30 kt winds meant no racing on the Saturday, but an early start on the Sunday allowed three races to be sailed in a shifty Easterly, varying between 5 and 18 kts. Neil Wilson quickly headed to the front in his Contender in the first race, to win from Ali Gray/ Alan McIntosh in a 420. There was less breeze in the second race, won by Richard and Stuart Urqhuart and James Gibb in a National 18, before David and Ian Kent in their Hurricane 5.9SX took the final race, with Neil Wilson second. <br><br>
Wilson’s consistent results of 1,4,2 gave him the trophy comfortably, as he took the title for the fourth time, eight years after his last win.<br><br>
The three man team of Richard and Stuart Urquhart and James Gibb in the National 18 took second, with Viola and Mike Scott in a third traditional class, the Osprey, taking the final medal slot.

EventsRYA Scotland Zone Championships 2011

The 132 competitors that came to Largs for the Volvo RYA Scotland Juniour and Youth Championships enjoyed superb conditions in the Largs Channel which allowed a full day of racing for all the Classes on Saturday. Sunshine and a steady southerly breeze that started at around 10 knots and built to 18 meant that the conditions were perfect for racing. <br><br>Sunday offered a stiffer breeze starting at around 18 knots but with a forecast showing the wind to build to over 30 knots. The organisers decided that with that forecast the dinghy fleet should be split into parts to concentrate the safety cover, so the Optimists and Toppers took to the water first. These single handed classes managed to complete a race in  challenging conditions. Next the double handers and Radials took to the water for their race in weather that tested them also. All dinghy fleets completed just one race.<br><br>In contrast the windsurfers revelled in the conditions and completed many more races on Sunday capping off a weekend of good sailing for the boards.<br><br>Full results for all classes can be seen by clicking on the above link.

EventsScotty Brand Int. OK Dinghy World Championships

After a wonderful Opening Ceremony at which the Boys Brigade pipe band welcomed us to Largs, the sailors again were able to listen to the sound of the pipes played by 14 year old Christopher who is a member of Largs Sailing Club as they launched their boats.  Adding to the joy of sailing in these waters was the sight of a lone porpoise which kept our company for most of the day.<br><br>After a short postponement whilst the Principal Race Officer Chris Hadden held the fleet ashore for the wind to build, sixty-five competitors headed for the race area north of Great Cumbrae Island.  With light airs in the channel, the decision was made to tow the boats to the start line, in preparation for a midday start.  With a 9 knot wind from 3100, the fleet got away on the third (black flag) start, with the majority choosing the left side of the course.  The wind died temporarily, leaving those in the middle of the course in the best position to benefit from the backing breeze.   First to the windward mark was Gunther Arndt (GER), with Hans Elkjaer (SWE) 2nd and Martin Von Zimmerman (GER) 3rd.  By the gybe mark Arndt had extended his lead and Rudiger Prinz (GER) was having a battle with Von Zimmerman for 3rd.  Places changed again at the leeward mark, with Thomas Hansson-Mild (SWE), the practice race winner, climbing to 4th place.  With the breeze picking up from astern, the predicted bunching of the mid-fleet around the leeward mark occurred, accompanied by angry comments from some of the participants.  Hansson-Mild found a bit more wind, overtaking the leaders to leeward and giving himself a cushion of some 20 seconds at the windward mark.  The wind was again recording 9 knots, enabling the fleet to return swiftly to the leeward mark on starboard gybe.  By the finish Hansson-Mild had increased his lead, taking the first bullet at this championship.<br><br>We awoke to another day in paradise - blue skies bright sunshine and temperatures in the 20s.  The thermals were building, promising wind for later in the day. Most of the participants commenting they were running out of their summer clothes as they had packed to prepare for cold and rain!<br><br>On Monday evening everyone enjoyed the mini Highland Games, comprising toss the caber –won by Christian Olesen (DEN), toss the welly – won by Dirk Gericke (GER) and the ladies tug of war won by team GB ladies.  A separate children’s contest was held in parallel and kids from all competing nations receiving prizes.  Everyone then moved back to the clubhouse to enjoy a traditional Scottish super of Balmoral Chicken.  With bellies full Commodore John Ridley opened the Whisky tasting with the competitors enjoying a snifter or two of wonderfully smooth Old Pulteney.<br><br>Day two of the ‘Scotty Brand’ OK World Championships commenced once the wind began to build the fleet set sail for the start area, their speed enhanced by a tow from the safety boats.  Racing got underway on the second start, where the fleet were kept in check by the black flag.  With a wind direction of 200 degrees and 8 knots of breeze, the fleet of sixty-five headed south west from Mount Stuart buoy.  The committee end starters were favoured with greater pressure and they sustained their advantage to the windward mark, especially Dirk Gericke (GER) who hit the starboard corner.  At the windward mark Greg Wilcox (NZL) rounded first, with Alistair Deaves (NZL) hot on his heels.  Just a short distance behind was Ed Bradburn (GBR) in 3rd place, Radoslaw Drozdzik (POL) 4th and Keith Byers (GBR) 5th.  In the light airs there were few place changes on the reaches but Wilcox and Deaves did manage to extend their lead on the pack.  Wilcox rounded first at the leeward mark, with Deaves still chasing hard.  Drozdzik had moved up to 3rd and Roger Blasse (AUS), world champion in 1998, was in 5th place.  The beat had been shortened in the failing breeze and many chose the starboard side of the course, although it did not pay as handsomely as on the first beat.  Wilcox and Deaves had increased their lead at the windward mark, Drozdzik was still 3rd and Gunther Arndt (GER) had worked the shifts to round in 4th position in front of Bradburn.  A slow run to the leeward mark in the evening sun surrounded by spectacular countryside was probably appreciated more by the safety crews than the sailors!   There was sufficient breeze for the final beat with Wilcox taking the gun and topping the leader board after three races.  With the competitors’ perks of a hotdog in one hand and a pint of beer in the other he commented ‘it was a tricky, shifty day, good for the lake sailors.  There are only 3 of us with all three results in the top ten, so a pleasing result for me today.  Deaves and I started in clean air and used our boat speed to clear the fleet.  We did not fight one another, instead concentrated on increasing our lead on the rest of the fleet.  It was really nice to see some new faces at the front of the fleet, demonstrating we all have the boat speed and the ability to lead a World’s race.’<br><br>It was a disappointing day for the ‘Scotty Brand’ OK World Championships on Wednesday.  Plagued with light winds that kept dying before a race could be completed, the Principal Race Officer, Chris Hadden, was forced to fly the N flag on the final attempt.  This was particularly disappointing for Rudiger Prinz (GER), who having returned to the OK Dinghy fleet in his new bright orange boat after an eight year absence, had established a clear lead on the rest of the fleet.<br><br>Disappointments were forgotten later in the evening when the fleet tucked into a delicious BBQ, generously provided the sponsors, comprising their own brand baked potatoes with burgers, sausages, chicken and salad followed by their own brand of strawberries with cream.<br><br>On Thursday, the fleet launched early under grey skies and a moderate breeze.  However, by the time the fleet had reached the race area the wind has beginning to die in the start area.  Swiftly the race officer moved the fleet nearer the Bute shore and a course was quickly laid.  The fleet were off at the first start at 12:15, opting to remain on starboard tack and the port side of the course which was the favoured side yesterday.  Some remained on the right side of the course which looked promising initially, but soon Rudiger Prinz (GER) and Soenke Behrens (GER) tacked to join the rest of the fleet.  Those who remained on the right generally lost out.  At the windward mark it was Tomasz Gaj (POL) who emerged the leader with Terry Curtis (GBR) on his transom.  Andre and Roger Blasse (AUS) were 3rd and 4th, with Stepan Myraif (DEN) and Simon Davis (GBR) close behind.  There were a few place changes on the reaches, so at the start of the second beat the order became Gaj 1st, Curtis 2nd, Roger Blasse 3rd and Myraif 4th.  As the fleet beat up to the windward mark for the second time, Gaj and Curtis were able to extend their lead on Blasse, Bartek Rakocy (POL) and Myraif.  The majority of the fleet started the run on starboard gybe, all reaching the leeward mark with no mishaps.  The final beat was a closely fought battle between a number of competitors.  Gaj was closely covering Curtis, whilst Rakocy covered Craig.  In the meantime Blasse, Thomas Hansson-Mild (SWE) and Greg Wilcox (NZL) were creeping up on the leading group.  The final result was a bullet for Gaj who won the Sønderborg Cup, Curtis 2nd and Craig 3rd.<br><br>On the final day of the ‘Scotty Brand’ OK World Championship sailors awoke to find the sun back, temperatures rising and very little breeze.  As the morning progressed with little change in the conditions some competitors started to pack up.  Everyone was expecting an imminent abandonment when all of a sudden word came in of wind working its way up the East Kyle.  The horn sounded as the postponed flag was lowered and sailors rushed to get on the water at 1300 hours.  The position at the top of the leader board was tight with only ten points separating the top five.   <br><br>The unlikely happened as race 6 of the Championship got underway at 1430 hours in 8 knots of breeze.  The first start was clean and the majority of the fleet remained on starboard tack, paying as the leaders approached the windward mark.  First round was Nick Craig (GBR), closely followed by Soenke Behrens (GER), Alistair Deaves (NZL) and Martin Von Zimmerman (GER).  There was no change in the lead boats at the gybe or the leeward mark, but by the end of the second beat Deaves had overhauled Craig and Behrens, with Von Zimmerman still hanging onto the front group in 4th place.  Close behind was Tony Woods (GBR), closely followed by Rudiger Prinz (GER).  Unfortunately both Thomas Hansson-Mild (SWE), lying first at the end of racing yesterday and Bartek Rakocy (POL) 2nd overall, were having a bad race day sailing around in the 20’s positions.  At the bottom of the run Deaves rounded first, with a clear lead on the chasing pack.  He opted to sail the starboard side of the course, closely following him were Behrens, Von Zimmerman and Craig.  Opting for the port side of the course was Woods, Bo Teglers (DEN) and Prinz.  Close behind the front group of sailors was Ralf Mackman (GER), Roger Blasse (AUS) and Stefan Myralf (DEN), all capable of finishing strongly on the final beat.  It was nail-biting as the spectators, and probably some of the competitors were trying to work out who was going to win the regatta.  At the finish, with a clear lead on the rest of the fleet was Deaves who wins the New Zealand OK Class Clock.  Finishing second was Von Zimmerman, barely a boat length behind was Behrens and Craig.  <br><br>Craig had done just enough to win the International OK Dinghy World Championship for the fourth time, only achieved before by Bo Stephan Andersson (SWE) and Leith Armit (AUS).  Martin Von Zimmerman, a former European Champion came second, just two points behind Craig.  In third and fourth positions were two ex- World Champions Thomas Hansson-Mild and Greg Wilcox (NZL) respectively.<br><br><br><br>.<br><br>Photograph Courtesy of Alan Henderson <a

EventsScotty Brand OK Dinghy GBR National Championships

The 2011 International OK Dinghy National Championships got under way today in Largs, Scotland with great conditions for the 42 competitors to enjoy. The UK boys were joined by 16 foreign sailors here early to warm up for next week’s World Championship.<br><br>A north westerly breeze of around 10 knots meant that the Race management Team could set a full championship course in the race area to the north of Great Cumbrae Island.<br><br>Race 1 - kicked off after a short postponement to give the competitors time to reach the starting area and the breeze built steadily through the race peaking at around 15 knots. First out of the trap was Ian Harris (UK), closely followed by Nick Craig, Kiwi Greg Wilcox and Aussie Andre Blasse. Craig (UK) took the lead showing great downwind speed and used his experience to hold the rest of the fleet at bay to take the bullet. Wilcox (NZ) maintained second from Blasse (AUS) with Martin Von Zimmerman (GER) sailing consistently to finish fourth. Shortly after the last boats finished Race 1 the wind backed a little and the course was reset quickly.   <br><br>Harris (UK) has shown sparks of brilliance over the last few years but this was the first time he had led a quality fleet. When asked what the experience was like he commented “I had an amazing start after spotting a sag in the line and went for it. It’s a great feeling to be leading four OK World Champions at the first mark”.<br><br>Race 2 - started without delay. The breeze stayed consistent although there were plenty of minor shifts around that meant the sailors had to keep their heads out the boat if they were to maximise their chances of getting to the front. They also had to watch for the occasional gust which resulted in a few sailors taking an unexpected dip in the Firth of Clyde. Blasse (AUS) took the gun from Craig (UK) sailing consistently. Former World Champion Thomas Hansson-Mild (SWE) improving on his sixth place in race one finishing third with Wilcox (NZ) fourth and young Bartek Rakocy (POL) in fifth.  <br><br>Race 3 - started immediately after the fleet returned to the starting area as the wind was now well established and was a solid force 4. The conditions provided the sailors with great tactical sailing and the downwind experts had some good waves to exercise the fine art of catching the surf to maximum effect. Those observing enjoyed the spectacle of 42 OKs snaking their way down the run while trying to stay on the waves. The race was dominated by Hanson-Mild (SWE). After nailing the start he then stretched his lead on every leg to take the win in convincing style. Craig (UK) had to fight his way through to finished in second after an unusually mediocre start with Wilcox (NZ) again in the mix in third and Von Zimmerman (GER) fourth. Rakocy (POL) is only 19 years of age and established himself as a real prospect when winning the European Championships last year in Medemblik. Scoring three fifth places today, he will surely be in the mix for next week’s World title.<br><br>

OK Nationals Day 2. <br>

The fleet launched on time in an Easterly breeze of up to 23 knots which resulted in an exciting planeing reach out to the Race Area but unfortunately by the time the fleet arrived there a Northerly wind began to fight the Easterly resulting in very confused conditions. After an hour of waiting, extreme wind shifts and a failing wind made it impossible for the Race Committee to set a fair course. <br><br>

The Race Officer relocated to the Largs Channel as conditions appeared to be much better in the reserve Race Area, however the awkward weather followed the fleet and extreme wind shifts of up to 120 degrees again forced the Race Committee to delay starting any races. After another postponement it became obvious that racing was impossible so the Race Committee sent the fleet ashore to wait for the wind to stabilise. Unfortunately the wind then faded to below three knots and all racing was postponed for the day. Hopefully better conditions will arise on Thursday.
<br><br>

OK Nationals Day 3. <br>

Like many parts of the UK Thursday presented another day of difficult conditions at Largs. The schedule of racing was brought forward to allow an early start, however, the breeze never rose above three knots all day, except at 15:00hrs when the wind came in with a perfect southerly of around 8 knots accompanied by glorious sunshine. Unfortunately the sailing instructions did not allow a race to be started after 3pm so no racing was achieved.<br><br>There were enough races completed on Tuesday to constitute a Series so congratulations to Nick Craig the 2011 International OK Dinghy British Champion.

EventsScottish Windsurfing Championships 2011

Saturday saw sunny weather and a breeze of around 8 knots from the west or north west. Racing took place for all the classes except the Formula boards who never had a consistant breeze above their minimum windspeed to allow a race to be completed. Although some races were started the race committee had to abandon them as planeing conditions were not quite achieved for a long enough period.<br><br>Sunday began with light airs that forced the race committee to postpone the start for a short while before the forecast breeze kicked in, which built steadily throughout the day culminating in a north westerly of around 18-20 knots. All the classes managed to get some great racing in, including the Formula boards that never raced on Saturday.<br><br>Congratulations to Dean Hargreaves who was awarded the overall Scottish Windsurfing Championship Shield counting all first places and one second in the largest and most competitive fleet - the Techno.

EventsIRC Scottish Championships (Mudhook YC)

The Scottish Sailing Institute supported this event in June 2011

EventsOK Dinghy, Finn & Scottish RS200 Traveller

Saturday saw a windy day at Largs with an average breeze of around 25 knots and gusts well up into the mid 30's. Racing was confined to the more sheltered Largs Channel as a forecast of over 40 knots prevented the fleet heading North to the more exposed championship race area. The fleets were depleted due to the severity of the weather forecast, however 10 OKs and 6 RS200's braved the conditions and took to the water, the Finn class decided to reschedule to another date.

Sunday dawned with lighter breezes and sunny intervals, although the forecast was still showing windspeeds of over 30 knots. Racing started on schedule in the Largs channel in a shifty westerly breeze which increased steadily through the morning to over 30 knots. The race committee correctly sent the fleet ashore after two races as conditions became more severe.

Congratulations to Nick Craig of Frensham Pond SC who won the OK series winning every race, and to Martin Boatman and Sam Murphy from Sunderland YC who won the RS200 series

EventsCraftinsure Topper National Series 2010

11 September 2010
Craftinsure Topper National Series


Click Here for Results
Largs, a fine coastal town to the west of Glasgow, was the venue for the fourth of the 2010 Craftinsure sponsored, ITCA (GBR) organised Topper 5.3 National Series events over the weekend of 11th-12th September. It was also the final qualifying event for those seeking membership of one of the Topper National squads this winter.

This is a spectacular venue with the racecourse being between the marina at Largs and Great Cumbrae Island, while Bute, Arran and Kintyre sit comfortably in the background at the mouth of the Clyde. It is also amazingly well equipped with vast boat parking areas, part of which became a mobile camper van village, a very large marina, several restaurants and the usual chandlers, boat dealers and outfitters. It claims to be Scotland’s premier sailing venue and could, with some justice, claim to be the best in the UK.

Some 155 sailors gathered for what turned out to be two good days of racing under the direction of Race Officer Chris Hadden. The sailors were organized into four flights, with two flights racing together at each start and then being rearranged so that everyone competed with everyone else over the six races.

Saturday started overcast with 13 kts of wind from the south-west. The boats launched just after 11:00 and were quickly escorted out into deep water. The sequence for the first start commenced just before noon, but so many boats were pushing hard on the line that the Race Officer was forced to make a general recall. In what was to become something of a trend, this was repeated again before the dreaded black flag made its first, and by no means its last, appearance of the weekend. During the first leg to the windward mark of about 0.6 miles the wind dropped to 7 kts and this also became a feature of the weekend with variable wind speed - gusty periods being interspersed with relatively windless phases and large swings in the wind direction. Before the second flight could get away the wind direction had swung around to the west and there was a long delay while the course was re-laid.

The flight winners of Race 1 were Robbie Robinson and Matt Venables with Giles Kuzyk and Freddie Chiddicks in second places and Danielle Thomas (the first female) and Lawrence Logan in third. Eight sailors were black flagged, one was disqualified and 11 were either finished on the course or retired.

There was a further long delay before Race 2 could start because of a complete absence of wind, and when it did come back in it was accompanied by torrential rain showers that made visibility difficult, but they were followed by amazing rainbows. Just to add a further touch of variety the sailors had to keep one eye open for the large number of yachts that were sailing out into the Clyde from the marina at Largs. The flight winners of Race 2 were Reuben Murphy and Edward Gillespie, second were Robbie Robinson and Hamish Streeter and third Freddie Chiddicks and Jamie Catchpole, and nobody was black flagged!

The third race of the day followed in similar conditions. Robbie Robinson and Henry Cunnison were first in their flights, Jamie Purcell and Steven Clayton second with Reuben Murphy and Ryan Glynn third. There was just one black flag.

Sunday started bright and with a little more wind, which was maintained throughout the day and without the heavy downpours of rain. A pattern had started to develop on Saturday, with the same sailors appearing repeatedly in the top places, and this continued into the first race on Sunday, especially the dominance of Robbie Robinson. On the Saturday Robbie Robinson had scored two firsts and a second, while on Sunday he was about to produce a first and two thirds, one of which would be his discard.

So Robbie Robinson and Reuben Murphy came first in the Race 4, with Henry Cunnison and Steven Clayton second and Matt Venables and Danielle Rowe third. Then in the Race 5 a few new faces emerged. Ellie Meopham and Giles Kuzyk came first, James Asquith and Samuel McKay were second and Robbie Robinson and Reuben Murphy were third. In the final race Laura Gilmore and Jamie Purcell were first, Matt Venables and David Clarke second with Robbie Robinson and Harry Hill third.

So after two days of racing Robbie Robinson of Saltash Sailing Club was the overall winner with 8 points, Matt Venables from Sutton S.C. was second with 14 points, Giles Kuzyk from Parkstone Yacht Club was third with 15 points and Freddie Chiddicks from Alton Water Sailing Club was fourth with 18 points. The highest placed female was Danielle Thomas from Calshot Sailing Club who was tenth. Largs is a spectacular venue with the infrastructure to support any large event. It may be a long way from the south of England but the trip is well worth it and no different from that which many of the Scottish sailors have had to endure several times each year.

EventsLaser Radial World Championships - Youths 2010

18 July 2010
Laser Radial World Championships (Youths)


Click Here for Results
After a highly charged day’s racing on the Clyde in some of the trickiest conditions of the week, Giovanni Coccoluto (ITL) and Erika Reineke (USA) have been crowned the new Laser Radial World Youth Champions.

The upper reaches of the Clyde just to the north of Cumbrae, provided the perfect stage for the final two races of this very competitive and enjoyable series, allowing competitors to really push to their full potential.

In tricky, shifty, light to moderate winds reaching no more than 8-15kts, 16-year-old Reineke from Fort Lauderdale, FL won the event with a race to spare, which is exactly what she set out to do when she left the shore this morning.

In what turned out to be her last race, she had a fairly conservative first beat but this bubbly, determined yet incredibly cool young sailor kept her head when the going was tough and worked her way to the top of the fleet finishing in fourth place, which was enough to secure the overall world championship title. The winner was Evgeniya Kuznetsova (RUS) who sailed an impressive race to take her first win of the week, followed by Amalie Riou (FRA) and Chiara Steinmueller (GER) in second and third respectively.

Manami Doi (JPN) managed to retain her second place overall with a seventh in the last race, while Michelle Broekhuizen (NED) had to settle for third.

Today’s 7th and 37th may have ranked among his worst results of the week but the extremely cool-headed Italian – Giovanni Coccoluto from Circolo Della Vela Muggia – still managed to pull off an exceptionally impressive series to win the Laser Radial Youth Boys’ Championship.

Coccoluto, fresh from winning bronze at the recent ISAF Youth World Championship in Turkey, and winner of the 2009 Laser 4.7 European championship in Helsinki, bagged some consistently good results earlier this week which helped secure the overall title. He won the regatta by a margin of just two points over second placed Tadeusz Kubiak (POL). Kubiak who comes from Szczecin, Poland had a fifth in the first race of the day but not surprisingly, was controlled by Coccoluto in the final race of the series.

EventsLaser Radial World Championships 2010 Men and Women 2010

(Largs, Scotland Wednesday 14th July) It is never an especially satisfying way to win world titles, but with no racing on the final two days of the Laser Radial World Championships at Largs Finland’s Sari Multala and Poland’s Marcin Rudawski prevailed and were piped up on to the podium this evening as the 2010 world champions.

Both sailors successfully defended the championship titles they won last year at a breezy regatta in Japan. This time it has been all the more challenging not just for the variety of wind strength but for the difficult shifts in direction which made consistency all the harder to achieve. And perhaps a true reflection of the Clyde’s comprehensive test is that five of the top six women are current or past Laser Radial World Champions.

Across the five qualifying heats and one Finals race which were completed Multala’s one finish outside the top five was her discarded 49th, gained when the late Sunday afternoon breeze was at its most fluky.

She finished seven points clear of Holland’s rising star Marit Bouwmeester. The pair have been regular training partners and credit each other partially for their successes here, and will work again in the build up to next month’s Skandia Sail for Gold Regatta at Weymouth and Portland.
Both have been on carefully structured and executed programmes, even if there are contrasts between their approaches which mostly reflect their different ages and experience.

Multala, 33, has done just the two world cup regattas Miami and Hyeres this season, both light wind events, and came to Largs charged up to retain her title again. Bouwmeester, 22, has been racking up the miles and learning venues, strategies and scenarios for the future with coach Mark Littlejohn.

A fitting finale would have been most welcome, but the racers stayed on hold since Monday . Yesterday there was next-to-no wind and today there was too much. The Clyde was a mess of marching, charging white horses and flecks of spume whipped up by the muscular easterly of more than 30 knots with many angry gusts of 42-44 knots making racing impossible.

Finishing in third place was the USA’s 2005 world champion Paige Railey tallied on the same points aggregate as France’s Sarah Steyaert, the 2008 champion.

Best of the Skandia Team GBR women sailors was Ali Young who finished in 12th place whilst 16 year old Eliot Hanson finished sixth in the Men’s fleet.

Poland’s Marcin Rudawski was surprised to win the Men’s title last year in Japan, but was doubly pleased to repeat his success here in Largs. His upwind speed and fitness, a by product of two Olympic campaigns in the full rig Laser Standard was key to his consistency, winning four races from six starts. Disc injuries to his back has seen him twice come close to quitting sailing, but the lure of competition has always drawn Rudawski back, and he pledged to be back in La Rochelle, France next year to bid for his hat trick.

Sari Multala (FIN): “I am pretty happy really. It was a pretty nervous day for me. Except for the one race for me the best thing has been able to sail consistently and that means being able to come back when I have maybe been not right in the top group at the beginning of races and in all kind of conditions. It’s been about both speed and tactics, but perhaps mostly about tactics. A little bit of boatspeed at times.”
“ At least here there has been a variety of conditions whereas Japan was pretty much the same conditions all the time, and here the waiting does make it all a bit harder mentally. But then it is all the same for everyone. It was colder here with the same amount of rain.”
“ I have done a little training in Palma, Hyeres but if I compare what I did as a 20 years old then I have done maybe a bit less but then the quality has been higher. I have been training with Marit who came second and we have definitely both gained from it.”
“I have not done that much racing, I did Miami and I did Hyeres and that is all the world cups I did. In one sense I do think it is important to be able to be really charged up for the big events. Not having too many made this really important.”
“It is becoming quite a big thing in Finland where we have the Europeans next summer.
I have a training camp in Weymouth with Marit and then do Sail for Gold and then that is it for me for the season.”

Marit Bouwmeester (NED): “I am happy. It has been a fun week. I found the racing really hard because the standard is high and the girls are really good and that is what I enjoy. I like the pressure, the tight racing and my level coming up, getting punished for every mistake you are making. It is a bit of a shame that the racing ended the way it did because more racing would have been good.
I think I have to learn to race a little bit better, but really that comes down to experience and I have not been racing near the front for very long and so it is very different racing up near the front, and I feel like I am still trying to figure it out.
I started two years ago making that transition, having a few good races, and then last year a little more consistency and now even more consistent. That for me is about being able to now recognise situations and the weather. And it is great sailing against Sari, she is an awesome sailor. I would have liked to have more races so that I could have had a good shot at winning but that is the way that it goes sometimes.”

Marcin Ruidawski (POL): “I started sailing Radial in 1996 and did three years before mixing it with the full rig a bit and then did two Olympic campaigns, finishing second in the trials twice. In 2008 I wanted to quit completely and after six months I decided it was too hard to live without competition. But I said to myself it is too hard to do 200 days sailing a year and so I started sailing the Radial again and lost 10 kilos. I had a slipped disc twice but my coach said I should try the Radial worlds last year. I felt I was lucky there, I had not been to Japan and thought I’d give it a try. There is was steady conditions, start at the committee boat, tack and go right and tack and that was it. This is completely different and I am much more satisfied to win here.”

RS200 REPORT

Costa del Largs was the host for the 2nd 200 circuit event held on the 22/23rd of May. The great Scottish weather resulted in hikers and rash vests being donned for the weekend. On Saturday a 5-8 knots SW provided the sailors with ideal conditions.

24 sailors were warmly greeted by the host club, some travelled from as far a field as the south coast without there kite. Nice 1 Dave, particularly after revealing he has 4 new kites sitting on the wardrobe at home. In an attempt to slow The Hivey’s down Robbie leant Dave what could only be described as a blue sack of potatoes.

The Hiveys started early along with Boatman/Murphy in race 1. The Sailingtogs team (Hiveys) decided to turn round whilst Zhik / Ianturnballmarine (Boatman/Murphy) carried on. Hivey sailed a good first beat to catch up to with the leaders by the w/w mark. Hivey then got through to first, with Burns/Simpson chasing hard and Boatman/Murphy and the Miller’s all in the leading group. Burns/Simpson had enough of Hivey leading so ‘lit up’ downwind and preceded to pass them much to the annoyance of Hivey to take the win. Clearly rattled by Burns unusual downwind tactics, Hivey’s decided that the blue sack of potatoes was better in the bag on the reach to the finish, Zhik/Ianturnballmarine passed to windward only to find they were OCS on crossing the line.

The Hiveys took race 2 from Burns/Simpson with the Hyslops sailing well to take 3rd and Gardner/Grieve taking 4th. Boatman recovered well from a bad start to take 5th.

In Race 3 Burns/Simpson found another gear upwind, the conclusion was that pulling the jib in makes you point higher. Some revelation having only been sailing the boat for 4 years ! They led from Sailingtogs and Zhik/turnballmarine.

Sunday, and with the sea breeze filling in from the south west around 11:30 sailors were treated to a repeat of Saturdays conditions. With the postponement coming down just as the breeze arrived on the course, sailors had an hour to fine tune their boats on the water. Burns/Simpson took race 4 with the ever improving boatman in 2nd and Millers in 3rd.

Race 5 was the closest of all the races, the course was swiftly moved for the new shifty W 8 – 14 knots. Hivey won the start at the stbd end, Boatman & Burns tacked to clear there wind to the right of Hivey and found some extra pressure to overtake the Hivey’s. Kim Ross & Laura Sanderson took the lead half way up the first beat by finding good pressure on the left. Burns kept plugging away at the middle and was rewarded by leading at the w/w mark. They then pulled away in there own private band of pressure to take a comfortable lead by the l/w mark. Hivey and Boatman then spilt tacks up the next beat and caught Burns. By the w/w mark Burns narrowly lead from Hiveys and Boatman ready to pounce on any mistakes from the leading 2. With Hivey and Burns battling for the lead, Boatman noticed more pressure on the right and took the lead into the l/w mark. The next beat was a titanic battle of the shifts with each of the top 3 taking the lead depending on the oscillations. Boatman lead at the last w/w mark. Burns again found some lucky pressure downwind to pull away form the 2 visiting boats to take the win from and Boatman then Hivey.

Thanks must be paid to Largs sailing club ‘for putting all the bits together on the water’. Take note Vic if we win another 1 you can thank all the right people. Yes Dave I need to work on that one! Joking aside the Race Team did a fantastic job lead by Scottish Sailing Institute manager David Kent. The championship length courses were inch perfect.

Thanks must also be paid to event sponsor JP watersports who provided the class with prizes.

SSI & Cumbrae at the RYA Dinghy Show


There are no results currently available for this event.
The RYA Volvo Dinghy show, held on the first weekend in March at Alexandra Palace in London always heralds the beginning of the new sailing season and provides an excellent opportunity for the Scottish Sailing Institute to fly the Scottish Flag. Teaming up in a joint venture staff from the Scottish Sailing Institute and sportscotland’s National Centre Cumbrae made the annual pilgrimage south.

The show is always really busy with a good mix of Class Associations and RYA recognised training Centres. For The Scottish Sailing Institute the show provides an excellent opportunity to meet with the many different dinghy classes all pulled together under on one roof. David Kent had a very busy weekend of meetings aimed at encouraging the many classes represented at the show, to bring their sailing events to Scotland. Aerial photographs on the stand of the new event slipway at Largs Sailing Club created a lot of very positive feedback and encouraging remarks particularly form some of the larger class associations.

For Cumbrae the focus of the show is on meeting the public. The stand always becomes a magnet for people from Scotland. The whole atmosphere is very friendly and the show gives you a feeling that you are part of a close knit community. Cumbrae has been coming to the show for many years now, and it is great opportunity to catch up with friends old and new. As firm and biased believers that Scotland has the best sailing in the world, two days spent enlightening people in London is always time well spent.

Clare Bennet Lloyd from Norfolk was this years winner in the Free Prize Draw, Congratulations to Claire, first out of the hat, who can choose any of Cumbrae's weekend courses as the lucky prize draw winner.
