Delivering a bag of sails in 1939..Jack Gladwell (1921-2010) Gladwell Collection
Welcome to Sail-World.Com's New Zealand newsletter for 11 January 2010.
Apologies for the delay in this newsletter due to the passing of my father, Jack, just after New Year. We celebrated his life and 82 years of sailing in the Hauraki Gulf, last Friday. In this edition, we present a gallery of his yachts from the pre and immediate post war era, or over 70 years ago. Certainly, life was a little different then.
In his latter years, one of Dad's favorite spots was the northern end of Takapuna Beach where the 2010 Splash Worlds concluded last Friday, with New Zealand sailors blackwashing the 75 strong fleet from 11 countries.
In this edition we have the daily reports from the regatta along with image galleries from most days, by Will Calver.

Congratulations to Chris Steele, from Wakatere Boating Club, who added the 2010 World Splash title to the 2007 World Optimist Championship which also graces his trophy cabinet. And congratulations also, to the other medalists, and competitors.
Sail-World did make it onto the water for one day of the regatta and were particularly impressed with two competitors from the newly formed Ocean Sailing Federation who rounded the first mark in first and second place, in the opening race of the day. We have their story in this issue.

Just through is the news that Declan Burn, runner up in the 2010 Splash Worlds has won the Davie Norris NZ National Starling Match Racing Championships being sailed at Naval Point Sailing Club. The event was sailed in conjunction with the Davie Norris Tanner Cup for P-class, which has been won by Erica Dawson (North Harbour). Female sailors took two of the top three places in this regatta.
Many thanks to Sutter Schmacher of Naval Point Sailing Club for the outstanding reports and images which she has submitted through Sail-World's direct entry system on the home page of www.Sail-World.Com, enabling you to see the latest reports and images the same day of the race finish.

We also have reports and images from the ls, at Napier submitted via the same facility.
In this edition we have limited reports and images from the 2010 49er Worlds in Grand Bahama Island. New Zealand's Peter Burling and Blair Tuke finished 17th overall having made the cut into the Gold Fleet for the first time - an improvement over their last World Championship in Lake Garda, Italy where they placed 26th overall.
In the America's Cup, the Notice of Race and Sailing instructions have been issued, ahead of a meeting between the Challenger and Defender in Singapore, next Wednesday. Ahead of that meeting we expect more action on the Constructed in Country issue - and the view of the US Challenger that the Defender are not permitted to have their sails built in the North Sails facility in Minden, Nevada, despite it being the only one of its type in the world.
