Sail-World.com : International Rolex Regatta day 2 sailing in paradise

International Rolex Regatta day 2 sailing in paradise

'Class IC 24 off St. Thomas - Rolex International Regatta Day 2'    Rolex/ St Thomas Yacht Club/ Ingrid Abery

The International Rolex Regatta, as cliché as it sounds, today delivered a second round of sailing in paradise for over .

And while for some that conjures up images of cloudless skies, azure blue water and brisk trade winds (the exact conditions that prevailed), for more serious racers it meant well planned race courses and exceptional execution by the race committee for some thrilling racing.

Jim Swartz’s (Park City, Utah) Vesper/Team Moneypenny, sailing in IRC 1 class, noticed it most as they won both of their races today to stretch their lead to four points over Richard Oland’s (New Brunswick, CAN) Vela Veloce. The first race was a twice-around windward-leeward course that lasted an hour, while the second showed off the scenic south coast of St. John (USVI) on a 22-mile windward/leeward course that used Leduck island as its windward turning mark.

'It was really interesting,' said Vesper crew member Gavin Brady (NZL), one of the world’s leading match racers as well as a past America’s Cup helmsman and tactician. 'There were rocks in the middle of the course that had to be avoided, so you didn’t have full use of the race course, but the entire fleet was pretty much side-by-side the whole time.' He praised the race committee for the courses they had designed, noting their ability to lay marks in shallow water and keep the course square to the wind, which some other Caribbean events are unable to do because of natural constraints.

'We spent most of the time watching Vela Veloce (which finished 2-2 for second overall today) and Interlodge (4-3 for third),' added Brady. 'We had a four-minute lead in the second race, but the first race, it was only 30 seconds, so that’s pretty close after an hour of racing. The good news is we’re getting better every day, and we’ve got more boat speed to get out of this.'

Brady will have to prove this without Swartz at the helm, since Swartz left the island today, instructing Brady to drive tomorrow. 'He basically said before he left, ‘Guys, don’t mess it up from here,' laughed Brady.

Calvin Reed’s (Tampa, Fla.) Beneteau First 40.7 Elandra of Hamble was skippered by his son-in-law John Linton to a 2-1 today for the class lead in the 11-boat CSA Spinnaker 2 class. Reed’s daughter, a member on the boat’s 10-person crew, said she was in awe of the surroundings today but kept her head in the boat nevertheless. 'We like a little lighter breeze than the 12 -15 knots we had today,' she said, 'because El OCaso (the J/120 owned by Miami, Florida’s Richard Wesslund and currently in second) is a planing boat and took off from us. They are our #1 competition along with another Beneteau, a newer version of ours, called Smile and Wave (owned by Puerto Rico’s Jaime Torres and currently in fourth overall).'

By winning today’s single 19-mile race in the 10-boat CSA Non-Spinnaker class, James Dobbs’ (Antigua) Lost Horizon moved into second place from third yesterday while Tony Sanpere’s (St. Croix, USVI) J/36 Cayennita Grande replaced yesterday’s leader, Bernardo Gonzalez’s (Dorado, PR) Beneteau First 35s5 Bonne Chance, now in third.

Dobbs, who lives aboard Lost Horizon in the winter and races the boat throughout the islands, normally sails in spinnaker class and has sailed almost every International Rolex Regatta to date. He was short on crew this year and made a last-minute change to the non-spinnaker class, which Sanpere, last year’s winner, welcomed. 'It’s nice to be in the same class to see how we compare to a very competitive boat,' he said. 'Dobbs is one of the winningest skippers in the Caribbean.'

With a perfect score line, Antilope, Willem Wester’s (NED) Grand Soleil, is still leading in the nine-boat IRC 2 class. Phil Lotz’s (Newport, R.I.) Club Swan 42 Arethusa remains in second overall after finishing 3-2 today.

In CSA Spinnaker 3 class, Timothy Molony’s (New Orleans, La.) Wild at Heart broke yesterday’s stalemate with Kike Gonzalez’s (San Juan, PR) J/80 Otrakosa when it won both races today, with Otrakosa in second each time.

In CSA Spinnaker 1, Mark Plaxton’s (Tortola, BVI) Melges 32 Team INTAC/CROWLEY finished 2-2 today to maintain yesterday’s lead over Andrea Scarabelli’s (St. Maarten, AHO) Melges 24 Budget Marine, which remains in second just ahead of David West’s (Tortola, BVI) Melges 32 Jurakan.

The IC 24 One- Design class, with 16 boats, completed nine around-the-buoy races today, with William Bailey’s (St. Thomas) Team INTAC JV taking the lead in overall scoring. The second-place finisher, Tom Kozyn’s (St. Thomas) Badfish, is a full 14 points behind.

In Beach Cats, with nine boats competing, Jorge Ramos’s (San Juan, PR) Hobie 16 Universal won today’s single distance race to maintain his lead over John Holmberg’s Hobie 16 Time Out.

This year more than any other, it is clear that the International Rolex Regatta has something for everyone, whether young, old, male or female, novice or veteran.

Bill Alcott (St. Claire Shores, Mich.), age 74, has sailed his Andrews 68 Equation in the regatta for more years than he can remember. This year, he decided to charter the Swan 601 Aquarius and promptly had team shirts printed that read Equarius, in tribute to his old boat. His dry humor is only matched by his all-out approach to sailing, and life. 'You’re as old as you don’t and as young as you do!,' he said after finishing 5-6 in today’s racing for a sixth overall in IRC 1 class.

Local sailing phenom John Foster, who has sailed in all but one of the Rolex regattas since its inception in 1974, is 73, and has two Rolex victories (and the timepieces that were awarded with them) to his credit. He, too, decided to make a switch this year, from skippering his Kirby 25 The Good, The Bad & The Ugly to crewing aboard his good friend Peter Corr’s Warwick 85 Aiyana.

Foster is known for exemplifying how winning is important but not everything. 'It’s not necessary in order to have a good time at the Rolex,' he contends, making it clear that fun is something no one leaves the International Rolex Regatta without having experienced. He also made another change recently, taking up the helm of a Star boat in order to campaign for the 2012 Olympics...with his son as his crew.

The youngest competitor seems to be 5 ½ year old Madeline Avery aboard the IC 24 Brand New Second Hand. Her father, and skipper of the boat, Morgan Avery, is a St. Thomas boat builder who made a name match racing with local America’s Cup veteran Peter Holmberg. He helped design the IC 24, which is now one of the hottest one-design classes in the Caribbean, with the intention that it be perfect for introducing young people to sailing.

There are plenty of women populating the boats here, including Tea Ekenoren-Sauren (FIN) who skippers the Swan 45 Blue Nights and counts some of Finland’s top sailors among her crew. She is known for her successes in a number of high profile regattas such as the Rolex Capri Sailing Week and Swan 45 Gold Cup.

There are also two all-woman crews: Diamonds Are Forever is skippered by Annie O’Sullivan (GBR), while the Swan 51 Northern Child is skippered by Suzette Smith (Hawaii).

Racing concludes tomorrow (Sunday) with as many as six races for IC 24s and two races for all others on Pillsbury Sound. Racing starts at 10 a.m.

News - USA and the World

Today, Ben Ainslie Racing (BAR) took to the water for the first time from their temporary base in Southampton, sailing their foiling AC45.

The calm weather returned on day five of the La Torche PWA Grand Slam as the wave sailors recovered from yesterday’s punishing, but brilliant, conditions. After a chilly start, with the thermometer reading just five degrees celsius, the temperature soon rose with the appearance of the sun, making for another stunning autumn day. ... [more]  

Day five of the Rolex Middle Sea Race has proved a day of reckoning for the competing fleet. The forecast strong northwesterly wind has arrived and consistently blown over 25 knots with gusts exceeding 40 knots. The effect has been to catapult the previously slow moving yachts towards the finish line in Malta. ... [more]  

A day and a night of uncertainty - later, the Doldrums will come to an end for the Volvo Ocean Race teams. By tomorrow morning, the fleet should be sailing safely in the southeasterly trade winds. So – who won this equatorial lottery? What was the best place to cross this convergence zone, where two hemispheres and two weather systems collide? ... [more]  

Known for erratic light airs alternating with sudden gusts that can last a minute or an hour from the giant unstable vertical clouds, the Doldrums (aka more officially the Inter-Tropical Convergence Zone) are the unavoidable low-point of leg 1 of the Volvo Ocean Race for the determined men on Dongfeng. ...

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 2014-15, Onboard Team SCA. Today I would like to share another perspective with you.

After two days of intense racing at the 2014 RS:X Youth Worlds in Clearwater, both fleets have completed a full schedule of six light-wind races, and they’ve earned their lay day!

Several of the On Board Reporters aboard, provide their unique views of Leg 1, Day 10 of the Volvo Ocean Race - in text, images and video: You know when you try to stick two positive magnets together and regardless as to how close you get them they never touch?

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]  

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. Over Friday night and into Saturday the Category Three Hurricane Gonzalo passed directly over Bermuda pummelling it with 100+ knot winds. ... [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). 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. ... [more]  

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. ...

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.

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]
