Soling Worlds - Day 2 at Milwaukee YC

Soling
The 2012 Soling Worlds are taking place from 17th-23rd September at Milwaukee Yacht Club. The 30 Solings from nine nations and four continents had to face a windy postponement on the first day at the Worlds but the second day despite the wind, decreased a bit - oscillating in between 14 knots and 20 and some gusts 20+ shifting into a westerly and unstable condition due to the Milwaukee buildings. There was a nice upwind view from the famous 'wing' monument at the memorial park.

The first race USA 853 surprised the fleet by rounding the first mark ahead of USA 846 and CAN 1 with some boat lengths of spare, but CAN 1 and his Olympian experience with a superb spinnaker drive by Joanne Abbott just got the boat flying , the whole distance USA 853 had was lost just before the leeward mark, CAN 1 rounding first (inside overlap) and USA 853, the surprise was finished, with a few things breaking at the boat, USA was left behind by many other boats while CAN 1 built their lead taking the first bullet home through the shifts CAN 225 the reigning champion also did a great job finishing second and NED 33 ended at the third place.

The second race already had many boats going into docks for fixing, a bended mast, tiller that broke, etc, etc… At sometimes it was blowing really hard in one side of the course and people were leaving hiking position in the other side, really difficult to play with. CAN 225 rounded first the windward mark, and kept building their lead, CAN 230 did their homework and placed a second and CAN 1 took the third place, a complete Canadian domain of the race.

The third race had more ups and downs with the wind intensity, and it paid big on the starting vessel and right of the course at the first beat, another great performance from the reigning champion CAN 225 with Peter Hall, Paul Davis and William Hall to finish the race in first followed by CAN 1 with William Abbott, Joanne Abbott and Tom Freeman, in third came CAN 230 with Hans Fogh, John Finch and Gord Devries, once more showing the level of the Canadian fleet.

Tomorrow more strong winds are expected, the same for Saturday….and probably Sunday?

But tonight sailors have their Oktober fest party, with traditional Bavarian music lots of beer and food.

News - USA and the World

The Australian supermaxi Perpetual Loyal has been forced to retire from the 2014 Rolex Sydney Hobart Race, with hull damage. The news came in a regular radio sked with race organisers, little detail was available, however it is understood that she has some hull delamination, probably arising from pounding though big seas and 25-30kt winds for the first day and night of the race. ... [more]  

For the last 18 hours, there has been never more than three nautical miles between the new kids on the block, Jim Clark and Kristy Hinze Clark's Comanche with Ken Read skippering the boat with distinction and the Bob Oatley's Wild Oats XI. Mark Richard's who was blown away by Comanche's reaching speed inside the harbour has been hunting the race leader relentlessly as the two boats beat south. ... [more]  

Clouds outlines what he is expecting to see in the race, and says that while the big boats will take all the attention in the early stages of the race, the weather is against them as the race progresses. The smaller boats will come surfing in a fresh northerly, while the front-runners cope with light winds on their final approach to the finish on the Derwent. ... [more]

A stiff southerly is testing the boats and sailors on the first afternoon of the 2014 Rolex Sydney Hobart and by late afternoon, four yachts had retired from the Cruising Yacht Club of Australia’s annual race. The first casualties of the race were Tina of Melbourne, forced out because of hull damage and Bear Necessity with a damaged rudder, just two hours into the race. ... [more]  

2014 Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race: The 117 competing yachts, including five 100-foot Maxis, represents the race’s largest number of starters since 1994.

Comanche skipper Ken Read was in fine form in this video interview. He says On the first night, will there will be too much upwind to be able to send it? It absolutey plays on my mind as the skipper this boat is untested. We’re completely cutting edge, and when it's cutting edge it’s a Formula 1 race car that blows up its engine on the first lap. ... [more]  

Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race: Brad Kellett, Brindabella’s sailing master, reported that while he was doing his regular checks this evening he discovered larger than normal quantities of water in the bottom of the boat, found to be coming from damaged rudder bearings.

One of the largest fleets in many years started the 70th Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race today in a building southerly and in bright sunshine. There seemed to be some mind games going on amongst the super maxis during the pre race dry runs as each in turn put in a single reef in the 30 minutes before the start. Possibly there was some tossing of the coin as to whether it was ... [more]  

Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race 2014 - Tony Cable just keeps going on. Last year he finished his 48th Sydney Hobart, setting a record for the number of races by an individual - this year it is number 49 - 49 not out, just one off the half ton! ... [more]  

Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race: Designed for fast broad reaching, the 15 knot plus south-easterly breeze on the harbour was made to order for the big red and black hulled yacht owned by American Jim Clark and his Australian wife, Kristy. After a brilliant start slightly ahead and to leeward of Wild Oats XI, Comanche swiftly unfurled her giant spinnaker and took off, quickly ‘rolling the Oats’. ... [more]  

America’s Cup winning skipper Jimmy Spithill could well be the most overqualified grinder you’ll see in action in the Cruising Yacht Club of Australia’s Rolex Sydney Hobart start line today. 'He’s been a wonderful team player and literally in the pre-start you’re going to see him grinding, he said he’d do whatever it takes, and he’s lived up to that,' Comanche skipper Ken Read said. ...

When most would have been sitting down for Christmas lunch the Wild Oats XI team were to be seen out on Sydney Harbour testing their new - and appropriately named - gooseneck, that replaces the one that failed when out training earlier in the week. In a puffy nor'easter Wild Oats XI headed to Manly on the wind, swung around close to the Manly East mark and headed back down the harbour for home. ... [more]

Professor Pat Pending had the most amazing Convert-a-Car in the 60s cartoon series, the Wacky Races. It could do just about anything. Come Boxing Day and the start of the 70th Sydney-Hobart, some may well wish they had a Convert-a-Boat. Being a hundred feet at the start would be cool. You get away off your own line and in clear breeze. You’re also well inside the rulebook. ... [more]  

Few Americans have won more sailboat races than Ken Read, 53, the President of North Sails . Read is skipper of Comanche, Jim and Kristy Clark’s new 100-fooer, one of five that will be lining up on the startline of the Sydney to Hobart. I caught up with Read some 48 hours before the start to get his pulse on the race, Comanche, and the adventure that lies ahead, en route to Hobart. ... [more]
