Sir Peter Blake Trust Newsletter - August 2007

'Sir Peter Blake'    Sir Peter Blake Trust
Sis Petter Blake Trust
 

The Sir Peter Blake Leadership Awards held at Government House in Wellington on Saturday evening were a true celebration of leadership.

The ceremony, hosted by Their Excellencies, Honourable Anand Satyanand, Governor General of New Zealand and Mrs Susan Satyanand, was attended by Pippa, Lady Blake, her daughter Sarah Jane and other dignitaries.

Professor Paul Callaghan became our third recipient of The Blake Medal for outstanding leadership contributions to New Zealand. Paul is New Zealand�s preeminent and most highly respected scientist, both within the scientific community and among the wider population. He is a world leader in the fields of nanotechnology and magnetic resonance and has shown outstanding leadership over 30 years as a scientist, a teacher, a science administrator and communicator.

Professor Callaghan has played a significant role in leading the establishment of New Zealand�s performance-based research funding system for tertiary institutions. He has also led the development of science communication to the wider public and has taken it as an almost personal crusade to de-mystify science and convey the relevance and excitement of science for all of society.

The Sir Peter Blake Emerging Leader Awards honour six younger leaders showing significant potential. 2007 recipients are: Waikato Primary Health Organisation chief executive, Shelly Campbell; The Halogen Foundation General Manager, Annette Fale; Commander of the HMNZS TE KAHA, Andrew Grant; Outward Bound School Director, Steven Hall; Palmerston North Boys High School Rector, Tim O�Connor and chief executive of New Zealand Cricket, Dr Justin Vaughan.

We are also happy to announce the addition of two new Supporting Partners for the Trust. KPMG who will be providing us with accounting services and Tourism Auckland who are assisting us (along with Line 7) in the provision of our new office facility at the Viaduct Harbour. Thanks and welcome to them.

Finally, Dr Mark Orams, Executive Director of the Trust has now stepped back to contribute as a Trustee. Mark's knowledge and expertise of marine science and the environment, as well as being a personal friend of Sir Peter's, has been an incredible asset and the Trust thanks him for his commitment and enthusiasm. His ability to speak and inspire people about Sir Peter, his love of the sea and how we can all contribute has encouraged and motivated many. The Trust is delighted he is staying a part of team and that, as Executive Director, he created such a strong foundation for its future.

Warmest regards

Vicki Watson and Laura Fayerman at the Sir Peter Blake Trust

Top Volvo Ocean Race correspondent and analyst, Mark Chisnell writes a regular report for B&G on the current race and trends he sees developing. Here's his analysis of Leg 1, Week 2 . It couldn’t last – all that tight inshore racing. The Atlantic Ocean is too big a place to roam around in a pack, and sooner or later something was going to create a split, it turned out to be a broken rudder ... [more]  

Imagine finishing the Coastal Classic and relaxing in your own waterfront home at Opua with your boat tugging gently on a deep-water mooring off the lawn. Built to an architect design in 2000, this north-facing waterfront Opua property is a short walk to the marina and boatyard. It is going to auction on November 22.

John Jennings reports on the build up by the NZL Yachting Trust Optimist Team ahead of the 2014 Optimist Worlds in Argentina: In theory I should be reporting on two days of racing from the Pre-Worlds but in practice it has been two days not too dissimilar to what has preceded them. ... [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. ...

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. The prevailing wind remains weak, but is expected to strengthen this afternoon coinciding with the arrival of bulk of the fleet t the Egadi Islands. ... [more]  

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]  

October 21, 2014: The Dollar continued to retreat under the expected extension of the Fed's QE. The EUR moved to 1.2800, while the GBP booked further gains, to trade 1.6160. Commodity prices remain weak, but the flagging reserve boosted the AUD back towards 0.8800 and the KIWI to 0.7950, despite a fall in consumer confidence. ... [more]

The battle continues for the lead in the Volvo Ocean Race, with the front running being taken up by different competitors on a regular basis.

The first eight days of the 2014-15 Volvo Ocean Race have been filled with more excitement and tighter racing than anyone could have anticipated. Up until Saturday morning, Leg One has left the fleet with few tactical options and therefore has kept everyone tightly packed as one unit of seven boats. ... [more]  

Volvo Ocean Race 2014-15. The sun’s out. It’s warm – not too hot, but warm enough for just a tee shirt. Ian Walker is stood at the helm of his Emirati boat, generous Atlantic trade winds whistling past his ears. 'We’re going straight through,' he claims, confidently. 'What Doldrums? - they’re going to say. Azzam isn’t even going to slow down.' ... [more]  

At 1700 CET in the Rolex Middle Sea Race, 113 yachts had rounded Stromboli, the active volcano that marks the most northerly point of the course.

Volvo Ocean Race 2014-15, Day Nine onboard Team Alvimedica. It’s hard to explain the complexity of the weather in this part of the world. No computer model or forecaster can accurately predict the winds because the air here is dry and warm, 23c now, and the typical barometric pressure gradients that generate them become very weak. ...

Volvo Ocean Race 2014-15, Day Nine onboard Team SCA. We’re a boat on a mission: catch the fleet. And they’re getting closer by the mile. The first time I sailed past Cape Verde islands was in 2010 when I was helping deliver a catamaran from Gibraltar to Antigua, W.I. ... [more]  

With nearly twenty hours of racing under their belts, the front runners are spreading out in the Groupama Race. The two real-time favourites, 'Crusader' and 'Keel Bill Groupama', chose options well to the east of the rest of the fleet. Astern of them, the time has come to re-organise. Meanwhile 'Opt Catch Me', less adventurous perhaps, made the smart choice of the day. ... [more]
