ISAF Youth Worlds Champions lead 29er Worlds

29er World Championships 2014 - The second day of the 29er World Championships began with unsteady winds from the North in the early morning. As sailors launched and arrived at the course there was only a short postponement to allow Kingston's famous thermal to kick in. By early afternoon the South West breeze had begun filling in with 12-16 knots of steady breeze.

On Course 1, Yellow fleet began the first racing trying to win the pin favoured end of the line. All boats were clear of the line and qualifying race four had begun.

[Sorry, this content could not be displayed]Micah Wilkinson and Jack Rogers (NZL) won the race with Yann D'Argenlieu and Nathan Bradley (HKG) close behind. Qualifying race six ended with Great Britain's Gillies Munro and Daniel Harris squeezing past Canada's Ryan Wood and Andrew Wood to take the win. The wind increased for qualifying race seven and the Kiwis were the first to the windward mark and continued to distance themselves from the fleet. Wilkinson and Rogers were able to create a huge lead from the rest of yellow fleet, rounding the last mark almost a minute before another boat. It was a very tight final race for the top two boats in yellow fleet with Argentina's Ignacio Varisco and Nicolas Peirano Prat taking an early lead but the Kiwis hit back to make it three wins from four races on the day and sit third overall.

On course 2, the French ISAF Youth Worlds 29er champions Brice Yrieix and Loic Fischer Guillou (FRA) had a steady day of racing. Two bullets, a third and a discarded 15th puts them in the lead by two points. 29er North American Champions Kurt Hansen and Harry Morton (AUS) are in second with Wilkinson and Rogers in third.

Two more races are scheduled to finish the qualification series with the finals to start July 31 and the prizegiving on August 2.

One of them is Industrial Light and Magic, which has been instrumental in the making of many of the special effects that have made the digital world so impressive. Gone are the smears of Vaseline along the bottom edge of the clear filter to hide the trolley that was actually transporting Luke Skywalker’s Speeder, for instance.

There’ll be no surtitles popping up on the top of your screen about now. At any rate, it is simply an adaptation of Lady Gertrude’s original line. We merely seek to use it as a way to demonstrate that when there is a lot of brouhaha going on, the smoke screen ultimately ends up as a lovely, colourful flag as to the real intent behind it.

Can World Sailing learn from dear old Oz?
Why just lay the drop sheets out and tape up the edges of the windows for a splash of paint Some time ago now, Sail-World proposed that ISAF had a really good opportunity at hand when it morphed into World Sailing (WS). Why just lay the drop sheets out and tape up the edges of the windows for a splash of paint, when you could bring out the jackhammers and do a proper reno??? A call was issued for 200,000 sets of goggles and earmuffs to be supplied and for the real work to be commenced.

World Sailing Cup V3 - A Dead Rat in a Shoe or Spring Daffodils?
While a host of major sailing events go from strength to strength, the Sailing World Cup has very major issues. Last night my Irish better half was sitting beside me on the sofa watching an Australian version of the popular TV Cooking Program My Kitchen Rules on a tablet with her headphones while I was watching Diehard II for the seventeenth time (it’s a boy thing) on TV. She suddenly spluttered and laughed, took off her headphones and motioned for me to mute Diehard. (Seriously!!)
