Sailing World Cup Hyeres - Laser Radial Breakthrough for Australia??

'Ashley Stoddart on the water at the 2014 ISAF Sailing World Cup Hyeres'    Thom Thow Photography

ISAF Sailing World Cup Hyeres - Young Queensland Laser Radial sailor Ashley Stoddart made personal history yesterday, with her first ever Sailing World Cup Race win.

Ashley Stoddart - ISAF Sailing World Cup Hyeres 2014 -  Sail-World.com .  
The 20 year old Australian Squad member competing in a seasoned fleet at the ISAF Sailing World Cup Hyeres which includes Marti Bouwmeester (NED) London 2012 Silver medallist and Evi van Acker (BEL) London 2012 Bronze medallist.

Up to this season Stoddart has been dividing her time between University studies and sailing and now she is focussing on her sailing.

Stoddart who showed early potential at the Laser Radial Youth Worlds back in 2009, has been gradually rising from senior ranks midpack.

She won Sail Sydney 2011 and then the Australian titles in 2012, finished ninth in Qingdao last October and fourth at SW Cup Melbourne 2013.

Stoddart had a slow start to this European season, she finished 48th at the ISAF World Cup Trofeo Princesa Sofia regatta in Palma Mallorca, a few weeks ago.

By contrast her score sheet in this regatta has been all single point, with a discard of a ‘keeper‘ seventh.

After her first ever World Cup race win yesterday afternoon she is currently sixth overall but just three points of third place, while ahead of her Evi Van Acker, (BEL) and Marit Bouwmeester have broken away, but third placed Tatiana Drozdovskaya (BEL) is just three points ahead with a worst race ninth.

Sail-World talked to Stoddart this morning:

Interview time for Ash Stoddart after winning an ISAF World Cup race for first time. Now 6th overall great work! -  Australian Sailing Team  

‘Palma was a tough regatta. I have fine-tuned some things since then. It’s a combination of both preparation in a competitive fleet and then adjusting a few different things that needed to be worked on.

‘This regatta has been going well so far. I would like to finish it off so I am trying not to think about things too much but just take it day by day.

‘In the last race yesterday, I was second at the top mark behind one of the Danish girls and then at the end of the reach I overtook her and then led from there pretty much. Had a really nice downwind and extended a little bit. It certainly felt good to get the gun.

‘Results don’t come without hard work. I have been working over the last six months just tightening up just what I am doing and what I am working on and making things a little bit more professional and aligned with what the Australian Sailing Team stands for.

‘I have been pushing hard off and on the water. I just have been doing what needs to be done. If I need to start somewhere then I am starting there and if I need to go for it I am just going for it because I think mediocrity doesn’t get anyone anywhere.’

There are two days of Gold Fleet racing to go then the Medal races on Saturday. Fingers are toes are crossed for Ashley.
