El día soñado de Provezza

El barco turco gana con dos soberbias salidas las mangas de hoy de la Scarlino Cup mientras Quantum mantiene su regularidad en 52 SUPER SERIES.

SCARLINO. (26 de mayo de 2016) – Hoy es uno de esos días con los que sueña Ergin Imre. El armador turco, todo dedicación, perseverancia y apoyo a sus regatistas, debe ser el hombre más feliz del mundo. Su barco se ha llevado las dos mangas de la segunda jornada de la Scarlino Cup, la primera prueba de la temporada de 52 SUPER SERIES. Las dos victorias le aúpan a la segunda plaza de la general, sólo superado por el infalible Quantum Racing que ha sido muy sólido de nuevo con un cuarto y un tercero. El velero liderado por Ed Baird y Terry Hutchinson lleva la aritmética del ganador.

Norauto sneaks past Team Tilt on day one of Garda

GC32 Racing Tour press release issued on 26/05/2016

Franck Cammas steered NORAUTO to the top of the leaderboard after six high-speed races at the GC32 Riva Cup today, the first event of the GC32 Racing Tour 2016. The French offshore racing legend managed to squeak past Team Tilt after the Swiss team suffered from some gear breakdowns.

Sebastien Schneiter and Team Tilt took scores of 1,1,2,1 in the first four races, although when their cunningham system broke they were unable to sail the boat at full pelt on the reaches. The Swiss finished 5th in the next, and was on course for another victory in the final race of the day. But then their mainsheet strop snapped and Team Tilt slipped to 3rd while the crew hurried to repair the broken rope as quickly as possible. This allowed NORAUTO to win the final race of the day and take the top of the leaderboard.

Favourites move up on third day at Delta Lloyd Regatta

For the third day in row competitors at the 2016 Delta Lloyd Regatta in Medemblik had another different set of conditions to contend with. Early morning glassy water slowly changed into an onshore 7-12 knots. With all classes now including drop races, the form for the week is taking shape. In the 2016 Para Sailing World Championship, there are new leaders in the 2.4 Norlin OD and Sonar classes, while some of the favourites made great strides closer to the top across all three fleets.

The day started with a calm and windless IJsselmeer and definite prospects of lengthy postponements. In the end the first classes, the Laser, 2.4 Norlin OD, 49er and the Skud were released just after 12.00, some of them already nearly three hours behind schedule. Everyone knew it was going to be a long day. The Moth class didn’t even start racing until after 17.00

THIRD NEW CHAMPIONSHIP LEADER IN THREE DAYS

26 May, Hayama, Japan

Three solid race results from Great Britain’s Paul Goodison puts his name at the top of the leaderboard on day 3 at the 2016 YANMAR Moth World Championships in Hayama, Japan.

Goodison, the 2008 Olympic Gold medallist in the Laser Class, holds a 1 point advantage from overnight leader Chris Rashley (GBR), with third to Scott Babbage (AUS).

Increasing waves and a steady breeze of 13-15 knots rewarded those with experience in big sea conditions. Too much for some, as gear failure and physical fatigue forced them off the race track.

Goodison familiarized himself with the particular nuances of big waves in Hayama Bay yesterday, ratcheting up today’s performance to score a 1,1,3, compared to Rashley’s 3,2,2.

Quantum hace los deberes

Los americanos, claros líderes, y Sled se apuntan los dos primeros triunfos de la Scarlino Cup que comenzó con vientos flojos.

YANMAR Moth Worlds 2016 held from May 23rd to May 29th in Hayama, Japan had the second race today on May 25th.

Today’s sailing conditions was strong southerly wind from the morning which is not ideal for non-experienced sailors to handle Moth. Therefore about 20 participants mainly who are not confident about sailing under this weather didn’t join today’s races. However, many of them rode on safety boats to support the competitions. They could have a close look at top sailors’ racing and learn a lot.

Chris Rashley from UK, new generation of sailors got ahead of others and finished in the first place for today. Paul Goodison, 2008 Beijing Olympic gold medalist in the Laser Class, made stable racing and stays the second place. Then Australia’s Scott Babbage finished the third after today’s races.

PRESS RELEASE:

Patience is essential on second day of Delta Lloyd Regatta

Patience was the essential ingredient on the second day of the 2016 Delta Lloyd Regatta in Medemblik, Netherlands, which incorporates the 2016 Para Sailing World Championships. Light and tricky winds lasted all day, testing race officials and sailors alike, with most fleets delayed at some point. The IJsselmeer was in stark contrast to Tuesday’s strong winds and in most fleets created some different winners.

In the Sonar class, the American team of Alphonsus Doerr/Hugh Freund/Brad Kendell (USA) picked up an unexpected win in the second race of the day after the Canadians were judged over the line. Following a third in the first race of the day this was enough to take the overall lead from British hands. John Robertson/Hannah Stodel/Stephen Thomas (GBR) picked up two seventh places to drop to second. Two second places for the German team of Lasse Klotzing/Jens Kroker/Siegmund Mainka (GER) was enough to move up to third. The first race of the day was won by the Israeli boat sailed by Dror Cohen/Arnon Efrati/Shimon Ben Yaacov (ISR).
