Block Island Race Week - Saving for a rainy day


'2013 Block Island Race Week -R80 is third in J/80s'    www.photoboat.com
After opening races at the Storm Trysail Club’s 25th Anniversary Block Island Race Week, leaders were thinking that saving for a rainy day is a good idea in sailboat racing just as it is in real life.

With 182 teams racing in 19 classes (four IRC, five PHRF, seven one design, two cruising, one doublehand) and eight of those contesting major championships, the stakes are high over Race Week’s five full days of racing, and early plays for advantages in scoring are undoubtedly wise investments.

In IRC, where the North American Championship is on the line, Steve and Heidi Bejamin’s Carkeek 40 Spookie put a 1-2 in the bank today to lead, leaving fourth overall to the other Carkeek 40 in their class, Stephen Murray’s (New Orleans, La.) Decision.

Block Island Race Week-Spookie, a Carkeek 40, is leading IRC 1 after two races -  www.photoboat.com  
'It was a good tricky southwest day with flood current changing to ebb, so there were a lot of variables on the race course between race one and two,' said Steve Benjamin. 'Decision is a sister ship, so inherently we’re quite close on boat speed, but there are two others out there: the Naval Academy Sailing Squadron’s Corsair (skippered by Andy Beeler, Annapolis, Md.), which rates higher and owes us four and a half minutes on handicap, and Catapult (Marc Glimcher’s Ker 40, New York, N.Y.), which rates less and we owe them four minutes. So we have to sail against the clock more than anything.'

Corsair finished in second overall with a 4-1 today, but Catapult is right there, tied on points, in third position. According to Benjamin, who thinks the latter part of the week looks better weather-wise than originally thought, the early performances are important for 'every regatta, but especially this one.

The J/80 one design, the largest class here with 18 entrants, is also holding its North Americans, and Clarke McKinney’s (Solomons, Md.) Knee Deep turned in the winning performance (1-2) for the day.

According to Will Crump (Annapolis, Md.), who steered R80 to a third today in that class, the wind, at 6-10 knots, had been forecast to blow at least five knots more. 'These boats are good in the low teens, but you can be struggling in the light stuff. The fleet got spread out, and everyone was fighting up and down the course. There are a number of people who are competitive on any given day, and we saw a few of them pop out today.' Thomas Bowen’s (Charleston, S.C.) Angry Chameleon is in second, tied on points with R80.

2013 Block Island Race Week-The Swan 42 class was topped by Bandit -  www.photoboat.com  
Block Island Race Week is also serving as the New England Championship for Swan 42 one designs, and Andrew and Melissa Fisher’s (Greenwich, Conn.) Bandit topped that class with a 1-4 today.

'The first race felt like we couldn’t do anything wrong,' said Andrew Fisher. 'We were in our own breeze, which launched us. It’s easier to keep the lead in a fleet of boats that go the same speed. The second race was more interesting; we were more in the mix. Jack (Slattery, tactician) made some good calls, and we had especially good downwind performance. All and all a good day, but just because we’re in the lead now doesn’t mean much. The winner of our last regatta averaged top-three every race.'

Coincidentally, Ken Colburn’s (Dover, Mass.) Apparition finished 3-3 today. Peter Stalkus (Newport, R.I.), a four-time America’s Cup navigator who is trimming mainsail for the team, said, 'yes, if we can average top-three for the rest of the event, we can win it.'

To honor the hospitality that Block Island residents have continually extended to Race Week sailors, the organizers always 'give back' by holding a Block Island Race Week (BIRW) raffle to benefit local charities. Starting with BIRW XVIII in 2001, the Storm Trysail Club’s BIRW Raffles have generated over $75 thousand that has been directed to the services and charities serving the Island and its residents—the 2011 Raffle donated over $17,000 to these organizations.

The 25th BIRW Raffle is looking to be the most successful yet, targeting a record $20 thousand in donations to this year’s designated organizations: the Block Island Rescue Squad, which has been called into action for one reason or another by virtually every BIRW; the Block Island Medical Center, which has patched-up more injured sailors over the years than can be remembered; and the Block Island Conservancy, a membership organization concerned with preserving the open spaces of Block Island.

This year’s Raffle will again include a 'Grand Prize' Rolex Submariner Timepiece, a week for two at the Bitter End Yacht Club, two Gill sailing jackets, a collection of Vineyard Vines apparel and accessories, a Mount Gay Rum collector’s set; a large Soundview Millworks carving board, and more. (Tickets available on the website.)

Sponsors for the Storm Trysail Club’s Block Island Race Week are Rolex (also the official timepiece of the Storm Trysail Club), Caithness Energy, Mount Gay Rum, Vineyard Vines, Clarion Partners, Gill, Gowrie Group, UK Sailmakers, Hall Spars, Bainbridge International, Bitter End Yacht Club, New England Ropes, Heineken, Sailing World, WindCheck and PhotoBoat.com.

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.

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]  

2014 Argo Group Gold Cup - Over the last few days there have been frantic phone calls between travel agents from competitors at the Argo Group Gold Cup, the sixth stage and the oldest event on the Alpari World Match Racing Tour.

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). 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. Many of the 14 competitors spent layover time in either hotels or airports and some are now guests in homes without electricity. ... [more]  

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. 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. Impressive stuff. ... [more]
