Rolex Big Boat Series - Bristling showdowns on final day

On the Rolex Big Boat Series fourth and final day a majority of the eight classes competing had bristling showdowns to determine winners, while others held the line to establish early leaders as class victors, including IRC A’s Jim Swartz (Park City, Utah) and his team aboard the TP52 Vesper, which also were named the IRC North American Champions for 2012.

'In my mind, sailing is all about teamwork, and we just have a fantastic team,' said Swartz, mentioning crew members Jamie Gale, Ken Keefe and Gavin Brady as among the greatest sailors in the world. 'It really helps the program immensely when you have a group of people who know how to take care of each other.'

Ken Keefe added that the team also won the IRC East Coast Championship earlier this year. 'After having a successful summer on the East Coast and then to come here and do so well is just an incredible feat and shows how strong our team is.'

As it did last year here, Vesper also won the St. Francis Perpetual Trophy, one of six coveted awards given for best performances in specific classes at this regatta. The trophies remain on display at St. Francis Yacht Club; however, six Rolex Oyster Perpetual Submariner watches are presented to skippers as personal evidence of their teams having won them.

Today’s single 'Bay Tour' distance race showed all classes (four for IRC, one for Catamarans and one each for Express 37s, J/105s and J/120s) the four corners of San Francisco Bay, routing 66 teams on courses that incorporated a start near Berkeley Pier to the east, mark roundings near the Golden Gate Bridge to the west and natural obstacles such as Alcatraz and Treasure Islands for assured testing of navigational skills. Conditions remained the same as they basically had been all regatta long: amazingly free of San Francisco’s famous morning marine layer, with sunny skies, temperatures in the low 60s, and plenty of breeze going the same direction as a strong flood tide, which meant mostly smooth-water sailing.

City of San Francisco Trophy – IRC B: Yesterday’s leader in IRC B, Daniel Woolery (Alamo, Calif.) aboard the King 40 Soozal, today had to beat defending champion Brad Copper (Alamo, Calif.) and his Custom Tripp 43 TNT to win, and he did it by finishing first to TNT’s third. Woolery only slipped from the top spot on the scoreboard once this week, on Friday when TNT temporarily displaced him.

'This is my third Rolex Big Boat Series,' said Woolery. 'Since the very beginning, we’ve always managed to have a good record with more wins than losses. Others said that Soozal was the boat to beat for this regatta, and it turns out it was the case, but we had to work hard to get there.'

Richard Rheem Perpetual Trophy – IRC C: Peter Kreuger’s J/125 Double Trouble, which last year won this class with Kreuger’s boat partner Andy Costello skippering, added a victory today to four more it had garnered over the previous six races and finished a full five points ahead of its closest competition, Resolute, another J/125 skippered by Tim Fuller (Murietta, Calif.). The class, reserved for light-displacement boats in the 40-foot range, is commonly referred to as 'fast forties,' and was dual-scored using the IRC as well as the new HPR (High Performance Rule). Double Trouble was the dual winner in both systems; however, Bernard Girod’s (Santa Barbara, Calif.) Farr 400 Rock & Roll, which was fourth in IRC C, took second using HPR scoring. Resolute took third in HPR, and the overall corrected time differences proved to be much closer in this new system. 'This helps prove the new rule as being more favorable towards the latest-generation high-performance designs,' said HPR rule developer Bill Lee.

'It was a great race today,' said Double Trouble’s tactician Jeff Madrigali (Whidbey Island, Wash.), a 1996 Olympic medalist who grew up sailing here. 'We had a light-air start, but the wind built really fast and the fleets were all intermingled and boats were flying. It was fun. The week has been great, with really good weather, great race management and a wonderful group of people to sail against.'

Keefe-Kilborn Perpetual Trophy – IRC D: It was all about who beat whom in IRC D today, and Frank Morrow’s (San Francisco, Calif.) Hawkeye managed to hold off Gerard Sheridan’s (San Francisco, Calif.) Tupelo Honey for the lead, winning today’s race and finishing one point ahead of Tupelo Honey, which finished second in today’s race and claimed second overall.

Atlantic Perpetual – Express 37: An upset in the Express 37 class had Michael Shlens’ (Palos Verdes Est., Calif.) Blade Runner knocking out long-time rival and defending champion Kame Richards’ (Alameda, Calif.) Golden Moon for victory. Golden Moon had topped the scoreboard early in the regatta and stayed there, except for a brief stint when both teams were penalized for a mark observance infraction. (Redress was later granted, and both teams returned to their former positions.)

'The Express 37 fleet is really exciting and the boats are all very equal; even after 20 miles of sailing today, we all managed to stay overlapped at the finish,' said Shlens. 'One minor error can be the difference of three or four boats. Several of the spinnaker reaches were very close and the final reach is where many positions changed within just a few miles. Golden Moon is very well sailed and Kame Richards is just an outstanding sailor, so we were trying to stay in front of him from start to finish.'

Commodore’s Cup – J/105: When Donkey Jack’s skipper Rolf Kaiser (San Francisco, Calif.) said yesterday that there were still three or four boats that could actually win in the largest class here at the regatta, he undoubtedly was including among them today’s race winner Godot, skippered by Phillip Laby (Oakland, Calif.). Godot was only one point behind Donkey Jack going into today, and now it shares the same point score, though Donkey Jack wins on a tie breaker after finishing fourth in today’s race.

'The J/105 fleet is one of the most competitive one-design fleets on San Francisco Bay,' said Donkey Jack’s main trimmer Steve Kleha (San Francisco, Calif.). 'Our tactic going into today was to win the race. Right off the line we scooted off past Blackhawk to clinch that part of the battle. After that, our spinnaker trimmer told us to go underneath Alcatraz, which earned us two places ahead of Mojo and JuJu.'

Defending champion Blackhawk, skippered by Scooter Simmons (Belvedere, Calif.), finished third overall.

John Wimer’s J 120 DESDEMONA - Rolex Big Boat Series 2012 -  © Rolex-Daniel Forster  

J/120: In perhaps the most dramatic conclusion of the Rolex Big Boat Series John Wimer’s Desdemona redeemed itself today, after it lost its lead yesterday to defending champion Chance, skippered by Barry Lewis (Atherton, Calif.). With only one point between the boats going into today, Desdemona had to finish ahead of Chance, which it did by posting a second to Chance’s fourth and edging the team out by one point overall.

'We knew that Chance was who we had to beat, but we also couldn’t afford to just let the rest of the fleet go, so we just needed to get a decent start and sail smart,' said Wimer, who has competed in the event for 22 years. 'Our expectations are always to do well and to have a challenge; this fleet has all really good sailors and it always comes down to the last race in the regatta. That is what it came down to today.'

Peter Stoneberg’s ProSail 40 Catamaran SHADOW - Rolex Big Boat Series 2012 -  © Rolex-Daniel Forster  

Catamarans: New for this year was a class for Catamarans, which thrilled spectators with their blazing speed and daring moves, especially at mark roundings where they sometimes mixed with monohulls holding a slower, steadier pace. Today saw Urs Rothacher’s (Oakland, Calif.) SL33 BridgeRunner beat Peter Stoneberg’s (Tiburon, Calif.) ProSail 40 Shadow, but Shadow had already wrapped up the series and only had to make it around the course today to win. Effecting Shadow’s handicap-adjusted performance may have been a paddle boarder who happened to be in the line of fire at the downwind finish and forced the catamaran to miss the line completely. The cat—with the same finesse it has shown over the past three days--coolly recovered from its wild detour and safely finished in 20 knots of breeze, eliciting admiration and applause from spectators on the Race Deck at St. Francis Yacht Club.

Sailed since 1964, the St. Francis Yacht Club Big Boat Series added Rolex Watch U.S.A. as a title sponsor in 2005. For next year, the event moves back one week to September 26-29.

Day five of the Rolex Middle Sea Race has proved a day of reckoning for the competing fleet.

Volvo Ocean Race 2014-15. Onboard Team Alvimedica. The synopsis is pretty straightforward: we are stuck in the Doldrums. Stuck, and stuck real good.

Volvo Ocean Race: Leg 1 turns inside out in Doldums *Feature by Richard Gladwell, Sail-World.com/nz
As reported earlier Leg 1 of the Volvo Ocean Race would seem to have gone from being a tightly fought contest to being a procession to Cape Town. Even though only 40% of the course has been sailed, the distance between the boats are significant (other than the two lead boats) and look set to increase. ... [more]  

Student Yachting World Cup - After those days of sun and light air, the weather was upside-down with a cloudy sky threatening us of heavy shower at any time and a strong wind fluctuating from 15 knots to 25 knots! Two windward-leeward races took place today as the wind became far too heavy in the early afternoon. The 13th race began this morning: a second start occurred under black flag. ... [more]

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. Team Brunel and Abh Dhabi Ocean Racing have both made big gains on the rest of the fleet - and the two easternmost boats - Team Vestas Wind and Mapfre, in particular. ... [more]  

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).

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.

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. Having passed Morocco and the Canaries, we were drawn to the tricky-to-handle magnet of Cape Verde. ... [more]  

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 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. ...

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.
