Sail-World New Zealand: June 6, 2013 - Records and Wild Rides

Welcome to Sail-World.com's New Zealand newsletter for June 6, 2013

The race from Auckland to Musket Cove, Fiji is all but over, with the first multihull and first monohull finishing about 20 hours apart.

Still at sea, and racing hard are two competitors - each making 7kts, according to the Yellowbrick tracker, with about 300nm left to sail.

The ORMA60 trimaran TeamVodafoneSailing chopped a couple of hours off her race record, but had a slow trip by her standards.

Some idea of what it is like to be sailing a 60ft trimaran in a confused sea between two major weather systems can be gleaned from this Facebook extract from TVS, otherwise known as the Bouncy Castle.

It has been a busy night and am. We have been on the wind pretty much since 6pm last night. It is blowing 25-30kts NW at the mo.

The sea state is building and has really slowed us down. We have three reefs and the little jib up.

Twinkle Toes Potter had a whoopsie and has tweaked his back and is now confined to his bunk.

We are trying to keep the ride in the red ambulance smooth, but he is groaning a bit!!

The boys reckon his groaning is quieter than his snoring - so we're onto a winner:)

Forgot to add that Harry tried to exit through the emergency hatch while changing his socks last night.
Punched a hole in the window, t'was a bit wet downstairs until the grown ups fixed the hole!

A bit rough for boiling the water, so coffee will have to wait.

From the first monohull, V5, we hear they have had the ride of their lives for the last two days - reaching in winds of 35kts and surfing at speeds of up to 30kts.

We are told the video is pretty incredible. Stay tuned.

In this edition of Sail-World.com's online newsletter we have full coverage of the race, with a couple of reports each day, being posted online at www.sail-world.com/nz

Two yachts retired - one being unable to charge her electronics, and the other Outrageous Fortune after a man overboard incident.

Again we have the details, as we know them, in this newsletter.

Sir Ben Ainslie on his way to breaking the Round the Island Record by over 15 minutes (2hrs 52 mins 15 secs) onboard J.P. Morgan BAR AC45. -  onEdition ©  

In England, the renowned Round the Island Race has been sailed. This year's was particularly poignant coming the day after the funeral service for Artemis Racing crewman, Andrew Simpson, at Sherborne Castle in nearby Dorset. The plan had been for Sir Ben Ainslie to race his AC45, emblazoned with the logos of his sponsor JP Morgan Asset Management, who are also the title sponsor of the Round the Island Race.

After the fatal capsize of Artemis Racing's AC72, Ainslie, a close friend of Simpson was rather dividend about proceeding with the race, the day after the funeral, but decided that it was the right thing to do, and set a new race record in the wingsailed 45ft catamaran.

In this edition we have reports and images of the classic race, together with a tribute from Ben Anslie, a winner of five Olympic medals , to his close friend, a winner of Olympic Gold and Silver medals in the Star keelboat.

In San Francisco, the America's Cup teams are in various stages of recovery after the Artemis capsize.

On the water three of the teams are sailing, along with Artemis Racing venturing out in a foiling AC45 catamaran.

There is no announced date for Artemis Racing to launch their AC72 catamaran. Whether they have a new wingsail available again is a matter kept within the team.

By any timeline, the Challenger of Record will be hard pressed to be on the startline for the opening of the America's Cup Regatta in a month - when the teams were due to line up in a fleet race.

Behind closed doors the discussion between the teams continue, with apparently little agreement on the sticking points of race schedule, changes to the class rules and other Protocol changes - save for those directly involving safety. But even on that front, some of the teams claim that what is required is their standard practice, or is just rule making to cover a situation they have already covered, and been practicing for several months.

Our information from various sources is that the disputed matters will go the to Jury for either a full Hearing or Mediation.

The fact the the premier trophy in the sport could be in a situation where a month from the regatta, the number of races and racing schedule are still being worked out is bizarre, to say the least.

Sail-World is monitoring the situation and may have more to say online in a day or so.
