Farr 40 One Design Trophy at Newcastle Cruising Yacht Club - Overall

by Jennie Hughes 2 Dec 2018 03:25 PST 1-2 December 2018

Race Officer Ted Anderson set today's course off Stockton Bight for the final two races of the Farr 40 One Design Trophy regatta. The fleet headed out for an early start due to the building wind forecast and the first race took place in very light conditions, followed by an hour postponement before the wind came howling in. Anderson called it a day after race six, with winds in excess of 30 knots coming from the west.

Jeff Carter and team Edake have had their first regatta win of the season and the Skipper could not have been happier. "We often make it to the podium but we haven't won a regatta since this time last year. We love coming to Newcastle and winning the regatta was the icing on the cake. The crew were awesome today and showed their versatile skills performing well in super light conditions and then super windy conditions. The racing was extremely close and the camaraderie within the Farr 40 fleet really is quite special. Bring on 2020."

The Sydney fleet occasionally tour to reciprocate interstate and regional owners travel and Joe de Kock is the reason behind the Newcastle One Design Trophy. The Midcoast Boat Yard and Marine owner has competed at two regattas this season as a substitute helmsman and this weekend he had the Good Form crew back together and the teams local knowledge proved beneficial. de Kock was happy to win the last race of the regatta resulting in second place overall. "It was wonderful having everyone here in Newcastle and we had some great racing. We sailed without a tactician yesterday which was difficult and today we had Lisa Darmanin".

Darmanin was a silver medallist at the Rio Olympics in the Nacra Class and this was her first keelboat regatta. De Kock added, "Lisa did a great job. It would be great if we could lock her in for the rest of the season."

The majority of tacticians in the Australian class are male and de Kock laughed when asked about having women calling tactics on Good Form. "Having been married for twenty years, I'm used to being told what to do by a woman, so this obviously works well for me on the boat too."

Tom Quick and the Outlaw crew found themselves in unfamiliar territory this weekend and for the first time this season their consistent scores weren't quite enough to keep Edake and Good Form at bay.

The Farr 40 Class would like to thank Paul O'Rourke, Jack Buchan, Ted Anderson and all the wonderful staff and volunteers at the Newcastle Cruising Yacht Club for their hospitality over the weekend which was, as always, second to none.
