Todo preparado en Cerdeña para la GC32 Villasimius Cup
Nota de prensa GC32 Racing Tour – 27/06/2017

Siete equipos competirán en aguas de Cerdeña por la segunda prueba de la temporada del GC32 Racing Tour 2017, la GC32 Villasimius Cup, que se disputará entre el miércoles 28 de junio y el sábado 1 de julio. El español Movistar – Ventana Group del campeón olímpico Iker Martínez busca mejorar la sexta posición lograda en su magnífico debut del mes pasado en el circuito europeo de los catamaranes voladores GC32.
Todo está preparado en la pequeña localidad sarda de Villasimius para la GC32 Villasimius Cup, segunda prueba de la temporada 2017 del GC32 Racing Tour 2017. Los siete equipos participantes aprovecharon la jornada de entrenamiento para tomar el pulso a este campo de regatas inédito, que les esperaba con brisas moderadas de componente suroeste (10-15 nudos), sol y 36 grados de temperatura. Una tibia toma de contacto con un escenario en el que se esperan condiciones más duras a lo largo de la semana, especialmente por el estado de la mar.

El Realteam de Jérôme Clerc es el equipo que ha demostrado mejor forma en el inicio de la temporada, alzándose con la victoria en la primera prueba del curso, celebrada el pasado mes de mayo en Riva del Garda. “Nos sentimos preparados, pero somos conscientes de que tenemos que cuidar cómo navegamos el barco si llegan las olas”, explica el patrón suizo. “La previsión indica posibilidad de vientos fuertes del sur, así que tenemos que evitar los pinchazos navegando de popa entre olas. Tal vez tengamos que controlar la velocidad un poco”.

Los de Iker siguen mejorando
Una vez más, las miradas estarán puestas en uno de los rookies de la temporada, el Movistar-Ventana Group del campeón olímpico vasco Iker Martínez, que demostró una rápida adaptación a la clase y excelente rendimiento en su debut en la Riva Cup: Finalizó sexto de una flota de 11 barcos, sumando una extraordinaria victoria parcial en la primera de las 11 mangas disputadas. “Hemos disfrutado de dos buenas jornadas de entrenamiento aquí, nos hubiera gustado hacer más, pero estamos mejorando nuestras maniobras, que serán críticas en regata”, explica Iker, quien se confiesa encantado de contar con la incorporación del olímpico guatemalteco Juan Ignacio Maegli como táctico a bordo.

La participación del equipo español en la GC32 Villasimius Cup recibe el apoyo de Ventana Group, la agencia turinesa especializada en organización de eventos, que colabora con el GC32 Racing Tour gestionando los eventos del circuito en Italia por segunda temporada consecutiva.

Stuart Childerley, Oficial Principal de Regata y antiguo olímpico de clase Finn por Gran Bretaña, se mantiene atento a la evolución de la meteorología en un campo de regatas del que la flota no dispone de mucha información, ya que nunca antes había acogido un evento internacional de vela. “Hay señales de que podemos esperar bastante viento, pero disponemos de varias configuraciones posibles del campo de regatas, así que espero que podamos darles a los equipos buenas regatas, siempre priorizando la seguridad. El área de Capo Carbonara es una zona protegida por su belleza, y eso significa que tenemos que ser especialmente cuidadosos con dónde tiramos el ancla”. Childerley trabaja con el club organizador del evento, Lega Navale Italiana Sezione Villasimius, para garantizar la mejor experiencia de competición para los participantes.

La flota espera ansiosa el estreno de este campo de regatas para ofrecer una nueva ración de espectáculo de los catamaranes voladores GC32. “La temperatura del aire es increíble, pero el agua también es templada; aquí no nos importa mojarnos”, confiesa Clerc. “Esperamos disfrutar de una magnífica regata aquí”.

Cómo seguir la GC32 Villasimius Cup
El programa de competición de la GC32 Villasimius Cup constará de hasta cinco mangas cada día, combinando pruebas barlovento-sotavento con otras de salida y llegada de través, en función de las condiciones. La página web oficial del GC32 Racing Tour ofrecerá un blog en directo desde el campo de regatas y un sistema de tracking Georacing proporcionado por la compañía francesa Trimaran.

Valtur Tanka Village
Marina di Villasimius
Lega Navale Italiana Sezione Villasimius
Colaboradores regionales: Regione Sardegna, Comune di Villasimius, Villasimius Area Marina Protetta – Capo Carbonara y Capitaneria di Porto

PETER BURLING AND EMIRATES TEAM NEW ZEALAND WIN THE 35th AMERICA’S CUP

Peter Burling and Emirates Team New Zealand have won the 35th America’s Cup.

Another dominant race win for Peter Burling and Emirates Team New Zealand in race nine of the America’s Cup Match, presented by Louis Vuitton, gave the Kiwi team victory on the Great Sound in Bermuda, sparking wild celebrations on board their America’s Cup Class (ACC) boat, and the team’s support boats on the Great Sound. Burling now adds the 35th America’s Cup to the Red Bull Youth America’s Cup trophy he won in San Francisco, 2013.

The Kiwi team dominated the final stage of the 35th America’s Cup, winning eight races to ORACLE TEAM USA’s one race win, giving the New Zealanders a final winning scoreline of 7-1.

The America’s Cup was last won by a team representing New Zealand in 2000 and they are now the Defenders of the America’s Cup for the 36th installment of the competition for the oldest trophy in international sport.

In the final press conference of the 35th America’s Cup, Grant Dalton, CEO of Emirates Team New Zealand, also announced that the Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron has accepted the challenge of Circolo della Vela Sicilia, who will be the Challenger of Record for the 36th America’s Cup and will be represented by Luna Rossa.

Selected quotes from Emirates Team New Zealand, ORACLE TEAM USA and America’s Cup Event Authority

Peter Burling, helmsman, Emirates Team New Zealand: “We’re just blown away. We came here to win the America’s Cup and right now we’re taking the America’s Cup back home to New Zealand.

“To be able to win eight races in Beautiful Bermuda in front of a big crowd of our own fans is overwhelming, we’re just happy to be able to share this moment with them, we’re just blown away.

“I’ve grown up watching this competition as a fan and to be a Kiwi and taking this Cup home is a dream come true.

“To be able to win this event at such a young age is an unreal feeling. However, I’m just a tiny part of a massive team and it is incredible to be able to reward the hard work of those hundreds of people who have supported us, not only here but back home in New Zealand as well.

“We’ve had to go through some incredibly tough times to get to this point. It has been an incredibly tough path to get past the rest of the challengers and then ORACLE TEAM USA and it’s credit to every team that competed.

“It’s so unique to get to sail these boats, every day they can be different. Our incredible shore team gave us that edge and to be able to reward their hard work and bring this Cup home with us is an amazing feeling.

“It’s just sinking in really and I think that will be the same feeling for all of those Kiwi fans watching us win the America’s Cup back home.

“For me I think the reason we won was because of what happened four years ago. This team has gone through some really tough spots from San Francisco and to be able to reward this team with the America’s Cup is the best feeling, because they are such an incredible team.

“I’d like to say thank you to Bermuda. It has been an amazing venue for a sailing event and I’ve absolutely loved this place, I’d love to come back at some stage.

Glenn Ashby, Skipper, Emirates Team New Zealand: “It’s just an amazing feeling of satisfaction to have finally won the America’s Cup.

“It has been an incredibly tough journey to get here. We came across late to Bermuda from New Zealand and to be able to get the boat into good shape in such short time is all credit to our amazing team.

“I’m just so proud to be a part of this team and to be able to bring the Cup home and I want to thank the support of the whole country.

“What happened in 2013 was a brutal experience for everyone involved, to be so close was extremely disappointing and is something that will live with all of us for the rest of our lives.

“So to be able to come here a few years later and pull off an unbelievable victory has really redeemed that situation for New Zealand and it feels like justice has prevailed.

“I think we’ve seen some unbelievable advancements here with the boats and the type of races we’ve seen and it’s great for our sport. From a sailing perspective it’s going to be hard to sail anything else after what we’ve seen in these boats, the technology is just absolutely amazing.”

Grant Dalton, CEO, Emirates Team New Zealand: “We’ve done it, finally!

“We probably don’t realise how big a deal this is back in New Zealand. I’ve been told that there was traffic jams at 4am with people trying to get to work just to see the races, which is utterly incredible.

“We’ve had a phenomenal group of guys, we’ve battled some serious adversity but as a group we’ve overcome everything. There have been a lot of people behind that and none more so than Matteo De Nora, who has stuck with the team through thick and thin and believed in everything that we have done. New Zealand owes a lifetime of gratitude to him for what we have achieved.

“We thought outside of the square and we did it our way. After San Francisco we knew we couldn’t out-spend other teams here so we had to out-think everyone. One of the things to come out of San Francisco is that we were out-designed and we knew this time round that we had to push that area.

“This time round we had no restrictions on design. We just wanted to see what we could come up with and we have achieved some truly amazing things that have been revolutionary in this sport.

“After San Francisco we had a pretty tough debrief and came up with 20 points that we had to change. One of those was that we had to invest in technology and the people that provide it. We also had to get our arms around the next generation of yachtsmen that were coming through and Peter (Burling) was one of those.

“He told me he wanted to be helmsman, so it was all about investing in the right people and giving them the responsibility to go out and achieve what we knew we could.

“It is important that we make the next America’s Cup affordable but we also need to remember that it is the America’s Cup and it is one of the top sports and not a little beach regatta. It is never going to be cheap.

“It is a fine balance between not making it prohibitively expensive, but not being so cheap that it devalues the competition.

“At the core of what we believe, we have to create an event that takes a lot of the good that has happened here, because there been a lot of good here. Just because we didn’t sign the Framework Agreement, that doesn’t mean to say there weren’t elements we didn’t agree with, it was just didn’t agree with every element.

“To me it is a privilege to host the America’s Cup. It is not a right and we will put in place rules and an organisation of our own that will do everything to be good enough.”

Jimmy Spithill, Skipper, ORACLE TEAM USA: ““On behalf of the whole of ORACLE TEAM USA, congratulations to Emirates Team New Zealand. What an incredible team. They’ve been a class above everyone in the 35th America’s Cup and we take our hats off to you. Well done.

“They sailed better than anyone else out here and so, rightly so, they are the 35th America’s Cup champions.

“The defeat hasn’t really sunk in yet and it is definitely weird looking at the trophy and knowing we won’t be taking it home.

“With hindsight there are a lot of things you would like to change but I think it’s far too early to say what might have gone wrong.

“Finally, I want to say, to Bermuda, you’ve welcomed us to your beautiful island and we’ve loved every moment of it. Thank you.”

Sir Russell Coutts, CEO, America’s Cup Event Authority, was quick to acknowledge the first New Zealand victory in the America’s Cup since 2000, saying, “I would like to offer my heartfelt congratulations and praise to everyone in Emirates Team New Zealand for winning the 35th America’s Cup.

“Helmed brilliantly by Peter Burling, with the guiding influence of skipper Glenn Ashby, supported by a world class sailing, design and shore team, they performed magnificently here in Bermuda, winning in dominant fashion.

“I know just how much this victory means to the team and to the people of New Zealand. This is a remarkable achievement, one that will be rightly celebrated in Bermuda and across New Zealand and I hope those celebrations live long in the memory, much as the team’s victory in Bermuda has now written a new chapter in the history of the America’s Cup. Congratulations Emirates Team New Zealand. You deserve your victory, you deserve the accolades coming your way, and now, you deserve to enjoy it.”

Race Nine

Race nine started with both Emirates Team New Zealand and ORACLE TEAM USA enjoying clean starts and engaged in a drag race to the first mark, the US team edging just ahead but then losing ground to their rivals on the run to the second mark.

Burling was serene at the helm of the Kiwi boat, displaying no nerves as he steered his team towards glory, but Spithill and the ORACLE TEAM USA crew were not giving up, pushing harder than ever to try and take the tie to race ten. However, it was not to be.

By the third mark the Challenge’s lead was up to 26 seconds, increasing further still at the fourth mark, up to 34 seconds, and from that point, barring mistakes by Burling and his all-conquering Emirates Team New Zealand crew, the die was cast.

ORACLE TEAM USA managed to peg back their rivals slightly in the latter stages of the race, but New Zealand sealed their win in impressive style, crossing the finish line for the final time in the 35th America’s Cup 55 seconds ahead of the US team.

Pace wins the FAST40+ Nationals

RORC IRC National Championship incorporating the FAST40+ National Championship.
23 – 25 June 2017

Johnny Vincent’s British KER40+ Pace is the 2017 FAST40+ National Champion, holding onto the lead after a terrific battle in the last race of the regatta. In Race 8, Pace was down in fifth place at the first top mark, but gybed away early to make up enough places to win the regatta. Peter Morton’s brand new British Carkeek Mk3 Girls on Film was second, just two points behind. Kiwi Mark Rijkse’s Reichel Pugh designed 42 South was third. 42 South has been the most improved performer in the circuit for the 2017 season.

“We had to work very hard for this win.” commented Johnny Vincent. “We have done so much work over the winter, and the whole fleet has become much more competitive, and much more polished, that has made a big difference. So it is fantastic to win in a fleet like this. It is incredibly close racing and unbelievably good fun charging downwind at over 20 knots, with tons of green water coming at you! It is really full on exhilarating racing. With such competitive racing, you can not always be first to the top mark but you know there is enough tactical decisions and manoeuvres in two or three laps, that it is anybody’s game.

The FAST40+ Class is not one design, but a lot of the boats have now squeezed up into the top of the permitted racing band, and that was the whole concept from the beginning; to not get lumbered with a one design boat means that you can go off and do other IRC events and be very competitive. So you have the flexibility to sail in any regatta but then come together for FAST40+ races and experience racing which is virtually one design. It is a clever combination and it is working really well. This set up allows us to try different things, you are free to try different equipment and rig settings.

When we sold my last boat, a TP52, I asked myself: Can we do something that can be as much fun? Now I am probably the novice out of this team but this is a much harder boat to sail than a TP52 and this racing is ten times more competitive than we were involved in before. The FAST40+ ticks all the boxes; we have close racing in a big fleet and it is so much fun.”

Racing for the FAST40+ Class continues next weekend, 30 June – July 01, with Round 2 of the FAST40+ Race Circuit, consisting of one day of Windward Leeward racing, followed by the 50 nautical mile course Round the Island Race.
