Sail-World New Zealand: April 3, 2013


'Not in the owners manual - Oracle Team USA'    Guilain Grenier/Oracle Racing©

Welcome to Sail-World.com's New Zealand newsletter for April 3, 2013

Our apologies for the paucity of newsletters since March 22. Sail-World has been recovering from a very serious hacking attack, which came as we were upgrading to become a cloud-based website.

Fortunately we had in place certain process which meant that the website continued with only very minor outward issues, but our mail system has had to be rebuilt - which is at the heart of our newsletter production to our large subscriber base of over 85,000 sailors.

We have been very active on the water, with several image galleries in this edition from the Auckland Cup, the 420 Nationals, Etchells Evening Series, Auckland Tauranga Race and others.

As well we have all the news from around the world, including the AC72 action in San Francisco and Auckland.

There is a new set of Am-Cam videos from San Francisco of Oracle Team USA, doing two runs - we leave you to judge these. There are some parts of their performance which is very impressive, others need more work. We are hoping to have a major interview with Oracle Team USA on www.sail-world.com in a day or two.

The Auckland Cup was an excellent event, in our view - having been fortunate enough to be on the water for the final two days. There was come great racing from the quite diverse fleets covering sportsboats, one-designs, multihulls and the open keelboats. In this edition we have image galleries from both days.

Currently the third of the ISAF World Cupevents is underway in Palma, Spain. Sail-World has a team in Spain covering the event, which has attracted a fleet of 850 sailors.

We feature reports from the first two days of racing - including the international news coverage, image galleries and the reports from the NZL Sailing Team.

New Zealand is off to a good start in several classes. racing was blown out on the first day for the 49er classes - but on Day 2, the 49erFX crew turned in a good performance and lie in second overall. The Mens Laser and 470 have also turned in good opening races, but as we note in the reports, the points system has been changed to the old 49er system, where the qualifying rounds, just roll into a single place carried forward into the score for the latter part of the series.

Some don't like this system, but it does work well enough and rewards those who sail well at the end of the series against the top competition, rather than giving too much credit for the wins in the qualifying rounds against a seeded fleet.

We also feature the story of two World Champion sailors, Rick Dodson and David Barnes, who developed multiple sclerosis in the late 1990s and have now teamed up to compete in the three man Sonar class for a shot at the2016 Paralympics.

Although they have eight world championship wins and two America's Cup wins between them, neither has sailed at an Olympic Regatta and at the 2016 Paralympics will be endeavoring to make New Zealand sailing history by winning the nations first medal at the event.

They will be having a major fundraiser, details of which are in this issue - one of the prizes at auction will be a ride on Oracle Team USA's AC72. An experience that would be an every sailor's bucket list.
