Australia wins inaugural SailGP in Sydney
Thousands of spectators turn out to watch the green and gold take victory on home waters

SYDNEY – February 16, 2019 – The first ever SailGP was witnessed by more than 20,000 people who took to the water on the spectacular Sydney Harbour, providing the perfect amphitheater for the season kick off.

Two intense days of racing saw six national teams do battle in the world’s most technologically advanced catamarans, competing to get the first points on the leaderboard and closer to the $1 million Season 1 prize.

In front of cheering crowds, the green and gold F50 race boat of the Australia SailGP Team, helmed by local hero Tom Slingsby, won the final race of the day to earn the title in the opening event over Japan.

The Olympic gold medallist and his crew of flight controller and tactician Jason Waterhouse, wing trimmer Kyle Langford, grinders Sam Newton and Ky Hurst, and Kinley Fowler gave a masterclass to the rest of the fleet.

Though it was pre-race favourite Nathan Outteridge and his Japanese team who were leading going into the final day and looked set to upset the home crowd, Slingsby and his team were quick off the block on the second day, winning the first race and shortly following it up with another race win.

A second and a third for Outteridge’s Japan team guaranteed their place in the final match race and a chance to go head to head against the home team and line up against a close friend and fierce rival. The Australian team’s practice over the last few weeks paid off, and they lead the Japanese off the start and never looked back.

“We don’t take losing lightly and that first race of the event really shot us into gear,” Slingsby said. “I couldn’t be happier with how today went. I hold my team to a high standard and they really over delivered.

“I don’t know which day had more spectators but it looked unbelievable again today, amazing the turnout for the first event of its kind in Sydney.”

Japan finished the first event with 45 points, three behind the Australians.

“Compared to the Australians, we’ve only done five days as a sailing team and I think that was what showed against them. But the fact we were even racing was incredible and to make the match race was just awesome. I am really proud of the whole team and what we have achieved in such a short time,” said Outteridge.

Third overall on the leaderboard with 36 points is Great Britain skippered by Dylan Fletcher. The British team under the command of Olympian Chris Draper was quick off the start and showed moments of promise but admitted they would be studying the data to ensure they were faster and more polished for San Francisco.

SailGP CEO Russell Coutts concluded, “A huge congratulations to Tom, Nathan and their teams. It has been a fantastic event and I want to say thank you to Sydney for supporting the event. It has been a great venue to launch SailGP.”

Next stop for SailGP is San Francisco, May 4-5, 2019, when the young guns of the United States Team will be hoping to emulate Slingsby’s success and score a victory on home waters.

First SailGP event sets Sydney alight
Japan take early lead on opening day of SailGP Sydney

SYDNEY – February 15, 2019 – Sydney Harbour provided a spectacular backdrop for the historic global launch of SailGP. In front of thousands of spectators, pre-favourite Japan SailGP Team capitalized on slick crew work and prior big foiling catamaran experience on day one of the world premiere of SailGP.

The Japanese team, helmed by Nathan Outteridge, posted a huge victory in race one. They followed it up with two second-place finishes, a performance that has them leading the hometown favourites by one point midway through the championship’s opening event.

With adrenaline coursing through the veins and cool heads, Slingsby’s Australian team rallied for two commanding comeback wins, in races two and three. Their surprise fourth in the opening race pulled the local team in behind the overall leader Japan when the day’s points were counted.

“Our team did really well,” said Outteridge. “That was the first time we’ve ever done a race together as a group. We made some errors but obviously we made less errors than everyone else. For the first day of SailGP and the first day for our team I couldn’t ask for more.

“It was an incredible day. The breeze came in at the perfect moment and it was fantastic to see so many people out watching. There were some really good battles on the water; we loved every moment of it.”

Slingsby attributed Australia’s race one result to poor boat handling on the revolutionary F50, and failing to pick the right side of the course in tricky easterlies, between 6 and 10 knots. Although he did hit the top speed of the day, reaching 34 knots in under 10 knots of breeze.

“It wasn’t the start we wanted,” Slingsby admitted. “We had a list of things to go through after that and we got better starts and got away from the pack. When we sailed by ourselves it was pretty obvious to see we are fast. We just have to get out of the pack and get free.

“But that was an unbelievable a day. The atmosphere was incredible. At the end of the race we sailed over to the spectator fleet and there were thousands of people everywhere. There were Australian flags and people chanting, it was incredible.”

The rivalry between the six national teams was strong but at the top of the fleet the fight between the Australian and Japanese team is heating up.

“It’s out of Nathan’s hands; if we perform we’ll beat him,” said Slingsby, who finished the day on 27 points to Japan’s 28s.

Outteridge shot back with, “The Australians are easily beatable – they beat us today because we made mistakes.”

Day one of the two-day championship drew overwhelming support from thousands of people on spectator vessels, those enjoying the front row fan seats on Shark Island and a global broadcast audience.

The British team skippered by Dylan Fletcher, started strong in all three races, finishing the day third overall on the leaderboard.

Racing continues on Saturday, February 16 before the championship moves to Event 2, in San Francisco.

America’s Cup sailors and designers win big at 2018 Foiling Awards

The foiling awards 2018 ceremony was held on February 11th in a location where the history of foiling was hovering directly above the crowd: the majestic Luna Rossa AC72 from San Francisco cup edition was in fact just meters away at the “Leonardo Da Vinci” Museo della Scienza e Tecnologia in Milan, allowing guests to appreciate the catamaran silver livery. A good match indeed to the Foiling Awards silverware in display.

The evening was also the opportunity for Foiling Week™ to launch the Projects S.A.S. , the world first foiling boat allowing able and disabled sailors to fly together.

The idea, devised by Foiling Week™, was introduced to demonstrate the FW core values: Safety, Accessibility and Sustainability. Designed by foiling guru Guillaume Verdier, the first prototype, the IRUS 5.5, is under construction in Lorient: the boat is a mini-IMOCA with dali foils, swing keel and double T rudders.

Once tested with modified seats and controls the new boat will be built at the world class facilities of Persico Marine.

Marcello Persico joined the stage to present the project with Simone Ungaro, CEO of Movendo Technology (a company involved in robot-based rehabilitation) which is also supporting the project.

At  last two of the project S.A.S. testimonials contributed to the evening. Glenn Ashby of Emirates Team New Zealand did appear in video and Max Sirena of Luna Rossa Challenge was present to show his support to the cause.

The project fund-raising was opened by Luca Rizzotti, Foiling Week™ co-founder, by showing the newly opened Project S.A.S. dedicated bank account:
Account name: SAS PROJECT BY ASSOCIAZIONE TFW
IBAN: IT 15 Z 01030 34211 000001855235
BIC PASCITM1418

Vittorio D’Albertas, the ceremony MC, passed the baton to Bruno Giuntoli, Foiling Week™ competitions manager, that opened officially two newly launched design competitions: the MP eFoiler, in partnership with Gurit and Torqeedo, is dedicated to professional yacht design firms with the aim of designing a Multipurpose Electric powered foiling boat. The other is the SuMo competition, dedicated to naval architecture students, for the construction of a sustainably built Moth class compliant foiler.

The evening did reach the apex with the presentation of the Awards Winners:

Star Midwinter Championship en Miami, triunfo para Paul Cayard y Magnus Liljedahl.


Fuente info Kathleen Tocke

Forty-two teams, from twelve countries, were graced by spectacular conditions on Biscayne Bay for the four-day Star Midwinters. The last event of the Star Winter Series attracted legends of the Class, as well as a number of younger teams who stayed on in Miami after the Junior Worlds. The last two days brought winds gusting above 20 knots, and teams enjoyed blasting down waves and thrilling reaches back to the club. The eight race event, is one of the hardest regattas to win on the circuit with no drop race. The championship came down to the last race with Paul Cayard and Magnus Liljedahl (USA) taking an early lead and Doyle and Infelise (USA) meeting with disaster and losing their rig, enough for Cayard and Liljedahl to take first honors.

The early part of the regatta brought sunny skies and medium breeze in all but one race. The Race Committee had to tone down the fleet after a number of general recalls, U Flags, and ultimately black flags to get races off. In race one, Cayard and Lilgedahl led at the top mark, but Doyle and Infelise played the right side on the downwind for pressure and stayed longer there passing Cayard and Grael. When asked about his team’s kinetics on the downwind, Infelise remarked, “It’s been a while since we’ve been in the boat together, so just getting back into the groove.” Get back into the groove they did, winning not only the first race, but half of the races in the series, in a variety of conditions. Day one also saw reigning European Champions, Augie Diaz and Bruno Prada win race two.

Day two started with lighter conditions, five to seven knots. Tomas Hornos and Pedro Trouche, who placed second in the Junior Worlds only days before, took an early lead, but again Doyle and Infelise, took advantage of some shifts to grind their way back to the front of the fleet for the win. “We sailed well on the downwinds,” said Doyle. “Payson, made a really good call on the downwind. It was our teamwork downwind that got us to where we were in the lead, we jibed early, and it got us out of big groups of boats that later got into trouble.”

The Midwinters includes the Walker Cup, named after Star Class, stalwart Harry Walker, and the trophy is presented after two days of racing in the Midwinters. This year, it was Paul Cayard and Magnus Lilgedahl to took home the trophy after consistent sailing in the top five.

Day three of the regatta, started with a postponement on shore due to storms around the bay. When the AP was lifted, teams sailed slowly downwind to the race course. By the time the first race started, the breeze built to a healthy fifteen knots and building chop. Race five was owned by birthday boy Lars Grael, sailing with perennial crew, Samuel Gonçalves. An elated Lars remarked how fortunate he was to do what he loves best on his birthday – sailing the Star in big breeze, with his friends, his crew Samuel, and his family there with him. His son, Nicolas was still in Miami, after placing fifth in the Star Junior Worlds earlier in the week. Doyle and and Infelise went on to take their fourth win of the regatta in race six, where the breeze had built to more than 20 knots.

Going into the final day day, only three points separated the top three boats, with Doyle and Cayard tied, and Grael a mere one point behind. The O’Leary brothers who sailed consistently in the top of the fleet, were in a distant third ready to battle it out with Tomas Hornos and Pedro Trouche for third. Diaz and Prada, were in fifth, with a slim chance to move up in the rankings.

Breeze was on for the final races, with big waves building on the lower end of the course and winds averaging 18 knots. In race seven, Hornos, despite claiming in the morning that he was too tired after six straight days of Star racing to perform well, found himself in the lead at the top mark with the O’Leary’s, Cayard, and Doyle hot on his heels. On the downwind, Hornos sped away, attributing his gain to separating from the group and being able to drive where he wanted and surf waves. He noted that his crew, the young Brazilian Pedro Trouche, “is the best. All the Brazilian crews are really good downwind. Pedro is super physical, getting the boat on the waves and keeping the boat surfing.” Lars Grael, met misfortune with a broken forestay and had to retire from races seven and eight, taking him out of the mix. Doyle and Infelise finished third after the O’Leary brothers, and Cayard and Lilgedahl were right there in fourth.

It came down to the wire in the final race, with Cayard only two points behind Doyle. Hornos and Trouche, avoided disaster narrowly missing a long anchor line at the pin end, slowing them off the start. Cayard and Lilgedahl nailed the start and led comfortably at the first mark. As fortune would have it, Doyle and Infelise rounded the top mark in fourth, but a port tack boat, coming up wind, was unable to avoid the pair. The two rigs collided, resulting in both boats losing their rigs. Cayard and Liljedahl went on to take the win. In the end, after redress earning them an average of 3.4 points for the regatta, Doyle and Infelise brought themselves back to second place overall, but it was Paul Cayard and Magnus Lilgedahl who claimed victory. Ireland’s Peter and Robert O’Leary finished third to round out the podium.
