Sail-World.com : Queensland sailors ambitions

Queensland sailors ambitions

'Ryan Palk (Left) and Klade Hauschildt training in tandem - Laser Class.'    Ian Grant

For some years I have personally admired the collective sailing skills expressed by the Noosa River Sabot graduates Ryan Palk and Klade Hauschildt.

They are living proof that a sailor who develops their skill from sailing in current and against a tricky wind system on an estuary such as the picturesque Gympie Terrace reach of the Noosa River can fulfil their career ambition to be successful on the World stage.

Ryan Palk (22) and his Olympic Laser dinghy rival Klade Hauschildt (22) both members of the elite Queensland Academy of Sport sailing team have the personal ambition to represent Australia at a future Olympic regatta.
Recent results suggest they have the dedication and personal skill to reach their goal.

Last month Ryan Palk clichéd his career best result when he tactically outsailed Olympians from the top European nations to win the Silver Medal during the Kiel Week in Germany.

The result was an encouraging reward for Ryan Palk who continues to surprise his coach the 2000 Sydney Olympic Bronze medallist Michael Blackburn.

Over the past 13 years since he hesitatingly gripped the tiller of his Sabot Ryan Palk has progressively developed his career to now be recognised as a tactically clever international Laser class competitor.

His talent has been developed from long training sessions with his equally talented Laser racing partner Klade Hauschildt.

Both have refined their individual technique with intense boat on boat mate against mate match racing on the tricky Noosa estuary where Klade Hauschildt has at times held the upper hand.

The comparison in boat speed expressed during their training sessions on the Noosa River has always been close and is expected to heat up when Ryan Palk return s from Europe and prepares for the International Sail Down Under series.

His recent International racing experience supported with a career best regatta result in Germany suggests Ryan Palk will have the advantage over Klade Hauschildt when the sails are tensioned for the Sail Brisbane regatta on Moreton Bay later this year.

Meanwhile Klade Hauschildt will continue to refine his personal fleet racing skill when he combines with Maroochy Sailing Clubs Toby and John Pearce to contest the SB3 Dart Wintersun fleet racing championship off Mooloolaba later this month.

Stepping away from racing the monotype Laser will be a challenge for Klade Hauschildt but he has the individual tactical experience to make his presence felt when OceanBuro 1 tests her speed against the Rod Jones skippered Club Marine and Sydney’s One Design Sailing steered by Olympic medallists Ian Brown.
