Sail-World.com : Farr 40 European Championship feels the heat

Farr 40 European Championship feels the heat

'Farr 40 European Championship 2010'    Francesco Nonnoi

The UNO Farr 40 European Championship and the Farr 40 Event 3 competitors experienced stormy, wet weather this past week but, those conditions have now given way to sunshine and blue skies as eight participating teams prepare for two the two decisive Farr 40 regattas in Istanbul, Turkey. Both events are this year being organized by the Farr 40 Class Association in collaboration with Marmara Sailing Club.

Racing will take place from 9th to 11th October in the third Circuit Event and from 13th to 16th October in the European Championship, which is also valid as the fourth and final European Circuit event for this year. During the final prize giving ceremony awards will go to the overall winner of the Farr 40 European Circuit and the Farr 40 European Champion 2011.

The events present an interesting mix of experienced campaigners such as current Farr 40 World Champion Guido Belgiorno-Nettis with his Transfusion (AUS) and three-time World Champion Jim Richardson ('98, '04, '09) with his Barking Mad (USA), alongside promising newcomers such as Turkey's Provezza 8 which placed fourth in the second leg of the circuit in Porto Cervo in July.

With a fleet representing six nations, the Farr 40 European Championship has attracted the usual line-up of top international yachtsmen. Lorenzo Bressani, tactician aboard Alessandro Barnaba's Fiamma (ITA), has nine World and seven European titles under his belt and his just been nominated for the ISAF World Sailor of the Year Awards 2011.

The kiwi contingent, meanwhile, will be well-represented with America's Cup veteran Cameron Appleton calling tactics on Struntje Light (GER), Olympic medallist John Cutler on Charisma (MON) - owned by Nico Poons - and Hamish Pepper on Barking Mad, amongst others.

In addition to on-the-water action participants will enjoy a full social programme including daily after-race refreshments as well as dinners and receptions in various locations around the vibrant city of Istanbul.
