Katy Kenah named SPARC Volunteer of the Year Hawke’s Bay

Napier Sailing Club’s Katy Kenah was this week awarded the SPARC Volunteer of the Year Award for the region of Hawkes Bay. 

YNZ announced today that Katy, together with husband Mark Kenah (pictured left), will also be awarded a 2011 Yachting New Zealand Service Award 

Katy has been a driving force behind the creation of Sailability Hawke’s Bay, building the organisation from scratch over the past 18 months, working entirely on a voluntary basis.   

Her fund-raising work has enabled the purchase of two sailing boats and a rescue boat with her current efforts focussed on the acquisition of two Access Liberty dinghies with Servo Controls. 

Sailability Hawke’s Bay can now boast 90 have-a-go and 22 regular sailing members largely due to the significant efforts of Katy and Mark who are regularly there to make it happen. 

Check out this great video on Youtube. 

Yachting New Zealand congratulates Katy on her SPARC Volunteer of the Year Award Hawke’s Bay Region!

Obituary: Alan Poore

Alan Poore (pictured in action at left), a Life Member of Charteris Bay Yacht Club passed away on the 17th September after a long illness. 

Alan and his wife Dianne have had a long association with CBYC from when they were young children. In the 1950’s he sailed P Class and then moved on to sailing with his father on his 18 footer “Melody”. 

Later, Alan sailed his Flying Fifteen with either Michelle his daughter or Martin his son as crew. They competed in the 1994 FF15 World Champs held in Timaru. 

Alan has been Chairman of the local FF15 Class, former Commodore, Committee member, Vice President, and this year he was awarded the 2011 Mander Yachting Trust Award for Club Coach/Instructor of the Year.

Nominated by the Charteris Bay Yacht Club for a Yachting New Zealand Service Award this year, Alan has been named today in the list of Awardees. 

He has been the head Learn-to-Sail coach for the past five years, bringing young sailors through to Green fleet Optimist racing and after school sailing. Michelle, his daughter, has now taken over his role as Learn to Sail coach.

Alan will be missed by his friends “CBYC Last of the Summer Wine” Wednesday maintenance gang, of which he was the youngest member. His practical skills and craftsmanship can be seen in his boat “Adagio”, a replica Logan 31, which he built and got much enjoyment from on Lyttelton Harbour.

Alan’s funeral will be held at Westpark Chapel, 467 Wairakei Rd, Burnside, 10.30am Friday 23rd September.


HIGH PERFORMANCE & INTERNATIONAL

New Zealand wins ISAF Nations Cup
Laurie Jury, Logan Fraser and Michael Edmonds have won the Nations Cup Grand Final. Jury and crew defeated Macgregor (GBR) 3 - 0 in the Open Division Grand Final sailing in Sheboygan, USA.

This from the regatta website… 

With a 2-1 lead going into race four of the open division sailed in Sonars, Jury (crew Logan Frasier, Mike Edmonds) sailed clean while top-seeded Mads Ebler (DEN, crew Soeren Toender, Chris Keene Boye) was able to clear his first penalty, but received another at the final top mark during a luffing match. Jury was able to sail ahead to the finish to win.

“We are really excited to have won the Nations Cup. It is our first Grade 1 win,” said Jury, who is on a match racing streak, winning the U.S. Grand Slam Match Race Series consisting of four grade two events. “It was really tough to get here. We had to win against the best top-ranked New Zealand and Australia match racers.”

ETNZ update after Plymouth Regatta

This from ETNZ...

Emirates Team New Zealand leads both the match racing and fleet racing sections of the America’s Cup World Series.After two regattas the team has 19 points of a possible 20 in each.

The wind was up for the last day of the Plymouth regatta last Sunday. On the programme: one 40-minute race and the title of Plymouth fleet race champion.
With the match racing championship firmly in the bag the previous day, Emirates Team New Zealand was expected to do well. 

But with strong winds predicted all bets were off. Getting around the track in one piece was a priority.  As it was three yachts capsized and two were in a major collision and did not finish the race.

The breeze was between 20-25 knots, with gusts to 30. The wind speed was not the problem, but its shifty and puffy character as it came off the hills was. Tactician Ray Davies said the secret of getting around the track is to keep the speed up where the breeze is more stable and crews can see the  puffs coming. “We have to keep pushing – a timid approach can get you into trouble.”

Emirates Team New Zealand and Oracle 4 and Oracle 5 led the fleet from the start. The lead changed hands several times and Oracle 4 led across the finish line with Dean Barker and crew close behind followed by Oracle 5. 

Yachts to capsize were Energy Team (France), China Team and Artemis Racing. Artemis had previously been damaged in a collision with Green Comm Racing. Both Artemis and Green Comm retired. Aleph was also damaged in a collision with Green Comm.

See www.americascup.com for results, footage and more.


JUNIOR & YOUTH SAILING

Observer opportunity at Optimist World Championships

An opportunity for interested people to ‘watch and learn’ through an Observer Programme at the 2011 OptiWorlds in Napier is being considered, and organisers are seeking expressions of interest.

The aim of the Observer Programme would be to provide a rare opportunity for event professionals to study the delivery of a premier New Zealand sporting event ‘live’ and on-site. Similar Observer Programmes instigated at other major events held in New Zealand have been successful, leaving a legacy of greater skills, knowledge and experience in the community. 

Racing at the OptiWorlds 2011 Regatta runs from 30 December 2011 – 8 January 2012. The event, being hosted by the Napier Sailing Club, is expected to attract more than 200 of the world’s most talented junior sailors. 

Numbers may be limited and there may be travel and other costs involved – this will be determined and communicated following Expressions of Interest. 

If you are interested please contact:

Takapuna 470 Junior World Champs

Takapuna, New Zealand is the venue for the 2012 470 Junior World Championships from 26 January-3 February 2012. 

The event organizers have put together a great event package which means the cost for international sailors to travel and compete in New Zealand is amazingly affordable.  With world-class competition coming to New Zealand for this event, a strong local entry list is expected. 

The New Zealand yachting community can encourage international 470 sailors who are eligable to compete in the 470 Junior World Championships in Takapuna next year. Details of the event package are published here on the International 470 Class Association website.
