The 2011 Under 17 Laser Radial World Champion Maxime Jonker (NED) now 18, won the 2012 Under 19 title. Australian Madison Kennedy took second place finishing on 32 points, while Britain’s Georgina Povall was third on 38 points.

In the Under 17 Girls, Australians Anna Philip and Louise Evans took the top two spots with Philip placed fifth overall on 43 points and Evans 11th overall on 66 points. Third place went to USA’s Lindsey Baab on 74 points.

In the Girls fleet Jonkers really stepped up to the plate and so did Australia’s Madeline Kennedy.

For Kennedy the last day was a big learning curve. As she packed her Laser away on the green lawns at RQYS this afternoon she said ‘I had an awesome start at the pin, I crossed the fleet and then instead of consolidating, kept going right, that turned out to be a major mistake. The wind went to left and I was deep at the top mark. I climbed back to ninth.

Madison Kennedy - second Laser Radial Youth World Championships 2012 -  Alaine Neilson   Click Here to view large photo
‘In the second race I was buried at the start and struggled and that cost me any chance I had to win the world title.

‘Then it glassed out for hours. With a little more breeze the Race Committee tried for a start for us girls just before the 3pm cut off.

'But the tide pushed a lot of the boats over and with time our enemy, it was all over.

‘I came second in the Worlds, I am very pleased. Of course to win the World title would have been wonderful but really Maxime Jonkers sailed brilliantly and she deserves the win.

‘I just want to say thanks to Adrian Finglas at the Queensland Academy of Sport and the other coaches, Ken Hurling and Ben Callard, the sponsors, event organisers, all the volunteers and especially Dad and Mum.'

(Dad BTW has a Laser Radial Master World title under his belt and he won bronze at this venue in the Master Worlds a few months ago, so its a family sport.)

‘For me OAMPS start tomorrow, then later in the year Sail Down Under and Nationals.'

Principal Race officer Kevin Wilson was philosophical when he came ashore

‘We tried to get a third race in , some pressure had come in about 14:30 and we tried to set up a race track but we just ran out of time with a 15:00 cut off.

‘We attempted a start for the girls just before the deadline but the current was pushing them, there were a lot of boats over early and we had a general recall.

‘Overall the sailors are all happy and they all appreciate the effort that the race committee put in to try to get fair racing away.

‘It was fair racing so that was the good part about it. It would have been nice to get more races in but unfortunately the pressure system just hasn’t allowed the breeze to come through.

‘Now we move forwards to OAMPS Queensland Youth Sailing Week and the Laser Radial Mens World Championships which start on the 10th and run to 17th July.’

Volvo Ocean Race: Big gains for two boats in Doldrums *Feature by Richard Gladwell/Sail-World.com/nz
Two boats have made big gains in the Doldrums, with the western-most competitors apparently not stopping and sailing though the convergence zone between northern and southern hemispheres, without dropping below 8kts.

The 2014 RS:X Youth Worlds kicked off on October 20th in Clearwater, USA, and it was hard work from the start: in 5-6 kt of breeze, offshore to start the day and side-on to close it, pumping was in order for the 54 boys and 28 girls gathered here for the 2014 RS:X Youth World Windsurfing Championships. ...

In spite of Hurricane Gonzalo's thrashing of the Onion Patch last week, the Royal Bermuda Yacht Club and the people of Bermuda are ready to host the 2014 Argo Group Gold Cup, Stage 6 of the Alpari World Match Racing Tour (AWMRT). All 20 teams have arrived safely from their corners of the world and will practice for a day and race on Wednesday. ... [more]  

While the Renaissance Re Junior Gold Cup always offers opportunities for young people to have new experiences, coping with Hurricane Gonzalo offered the 14 competitors traveling from overseas to Bermuda a hurdle that strengthened their respect for this island nation.

Dynamic Stability Systems welcomes last week’s decision by IMOCA to place no further restrictions on its class rule.

Volvo Ocean Race 2014-15. It’s the place where the northern and southern winds meet, where a sailing race can be won or lost in an instant. And with its complex and confusing conditions, lack of breeze, and stifling heat – it’s also a place that most sailors can’t wait to see the back of. But there is one good thing about the Doldrums. ... [more]  

The Atlantic has proved to be a test for the VO65s in the Volvo Ocean Race and their teams as a battle of gybing down the west coast of Africa broke out, keeping all boats in a relatively tight-knit pack for much longer than expected.

It’s the dawn of a complicated day in the Volvo Ocean Race. Let’s face it: we’re not having a very good time on Dongfeng. We lost distance last night, and our leading position. The day got dull afterwards. Sailing straight ahead, with the spinnaker up, in light winds. ... [more]  

Volvo Ocean Race 2014-15, Day 10 onboard Team SCA. Two days, eight hours, thirty-four minutes, and ten seconds, nine seconds, eight, seven, six, five… over the last few days the clock has gotten louder and louder as it counts down to October 23rd at noon—the time when we cross the equator and the time when myself and six other sailors join the rest of our crew in King Neptune’s court. ...

For Pablo Arrarte Elorza, the Volvo Ocean Race is a tough challenge. Not as far as physical effort is concerned because this likeable Spaniard is a very strong guy. For Pablo, the race is mostly a culinary war of attrition because the food that the team has bought with it on the race does little to please his gourmet palate. ... [more]  

The team at The St. Maarten Heineken Regatta are very happy to announce that entries are now open for the 2015 Regatta, taking place March 5 - 8.

After three complete days at sea only three boats competing in the 2014 Rolex Middle Sea Race have passed the northwest tip of Sicily, roughly the halfway point of the race. The prevailing wind remains weak, but is expected to strengthen this afternoon coinciding with the arrival of bulk of the fleet t the Egadi Islands. ... [more]  

Last week the Volvo Ocean Race was all about VMG downwind sailing, with Dongfeng being the star performer. After DFRT took the lead, they shortly lost it again 36 hours later after hitting something in the water and losing their rudder. Two hours later they were up and running again with the spare in. Impressive stuff. ... [more]

Volvo Ocean Race 2014-15. The sun’s out. It’s warm – not too hot, but warm enough for just a tee shirt.

Volvo Ocean Race 2014-15, Day Nine onboard Team Alvimedica. It’s hard to explain the complexity of the weather in this part of the world.
