All at Sea opens show Spitfire ML 407 flying above High Speed Launch 102 and Motor Gunboat 81

ALL AT SEA was centre stage as the annual extravaganza of the best of British boating was opened with timely emotion and style at Southampton. As the unmistakable shape of a Spitfire circled overhead Dawn Porter and Nick Hancock, stars of our namesake TV programme – ITV’s All at Sea – sailed into Mayflower Park on a World War II motor boat to mark the official opening of the PSP Boat Show. Swooping out of the overcast sky the Spitfire provided a 15-minute display of pure nostalgia. Its

throaty roar created a moving atmosphere as the show marked the 70th anniversary of the Battle of Britain. Piloted by its owner Carolyn Grace the iconic aircraft ML 407 flew above the restored High Speed Launch 102 and Motor Gunboat 81 as they approached the marina. The Spitfire completed a final victory roll against a background of the atmospheric Battle of Britain march and Winston’s Churchill’s stirring speech outlining the debt owed by so many to the “Few” – the RAF pilots, many only just out

Dawn Porter revealed that she had grown up with boating in Scotland where her father sells boats on Loch Lomond. Nick Hancock hails from Stokeon-Trent where his dad was a builder so he had little experience of the sea until the TV programme. He reminded show visitors that the captain of the Titanic hailed from the Potteries town but quipped that his wife had accompanied him to the show to stop him buying a boat.

AS I was saying before I was rudely interrupted . . . That is how a famous Daily Mirror columnist restarted his epistles to the nation after being whisked away for service in World War II. Well there has not been a war at home this summer but those who were restricted in their boating in August were certainly disrupted by the weather and didn’t we complain. And it’s all my fault. I should not have tempted fate by waxing lyrical about the glorious sunny days and gentle breezes of June and July. I was fooled by the winds that had blown steady and from the right direction back in June for the Round the Island Race in which I seem to remember tacking only three times! But I should have known better in July. It poured on St Swithin’s Day and I mocked the trusty saint. It did indeed seem to rain for 40 days and nights. I can remember when they moved August Bank Holiday from the beginning to the end of the month. I still believe it was because the early holidays were inevitably dreadful. Not much change there then despite changing the date. Our star columnist Shelley JoryLeigh bemoans “the worst weather in history” for the Cowes-TorquayCowes powerboat classic. She may well have been right but watergoers should never complain about the elements. Powerboats

New chief JON Pridham has been appointed Managing Director of Cowes Yacht Haven, the home of international boating since 1800.

Jon also worked at Gunwharf Quays Marina for nine years, was appointed to lead the Isle of Wight marina and

can slow down, yachts take in a reef or two and, within reason, a bit of weather makes the game more exciting. It certainly helps to test and improve skills. What’s more in busy sailing areas such as the Solent, a bit of blow and the threat of shower creates space. We had a terrific Friday and Saturday sail back and forth to Yarmouth. And once there we were able to enjoy the exquisite harbour and town to the full. So let’s celebrate the weather. Perhaps if we catch it doing something good and praise it rather than always picking on its faults, it will learn to behave better.

Salute the veterans THINKING about World War II, Southampton boat show chiefs are to be congratulated for giving the Spitfires of the seas a starring role in the opening ceremony. At this time of year when the sun does shine it is hard to imagine those ageing veterans as young men patrolling the skies over Southern England, dogfighting and ditching in the Channel where those fast patrol craft rescued them to fight another day. We must always salute the dwindling band of boats that still grace our waters 70 years on, the its Events Centre forward and develop its reputation within the marine and event industry. He said: “I fell in love with Cowes Yacht Haven the first time I visited. The sailing here is world-class.” www.cowesyachthaven.com.

iconic planes and most of all the people who were the “Few” to whom Churchill said we owed so much.

Owning the waves THE Solent was almost empty after racing on the first day of Cowes Week. As we ran home before the wind towards Portsmouth a powerboat on a reciprocal course heading for Cowes seemed intent on sharing our bit of water. Just why it had to come so close, literally rocking the boat, is a mystery. Altering course a degree or two for a minute or two could have made such a difference and it would have been much easier for the powerboat than us as we poodled dead down wind. Photo: James Bridgman

Spitfires of the Sea THE last remaining fully operational highspeed wartime motor boats – the ‘Spitfires of the Sea’ – made make an historic voyage home to Southampton where they were built more than 70 years ago. Enthusiasts who man the boats welcomed some of the proud veterans from the RAF on board. The boats were designed and built by the British Powerboat Company at Hythe across the water from Southampton and were some of the fastest boats of their type in the world.

The company’s founder, aviation and powerboat pioneer Hubert Scott-Paine, along with Aircraftsman T.E. Shaw – better known as Lawrence of Arabia – pioneered the fast maneuverable craft for British military use. The boats have been ‘saved for the nation’ by the Portsmouth Naval Base Property Trust thanks to a £580,000 grant from the National Heritage Memorial Fund. They are on permanent display at Gunwharf Quays Marina in Portsmouth where they are available for charter.

Countdown to 2012 Paralympics FOLLOWING the success of Britain’s Paralympic sailors at the World Championships and Skandia Sail for Gold Regattas, and to celebrate two years to go to the 2012 Paralympic Games, a stunning collection of images captured by award winning photographer Robert Wilson has been released. Skandia Team GBR, the British national sailing team in the Olympic and Paralympic classes, has worked for a second time with the renowned war photographer to photogrpah the sailors as they trained in Weymouth. Britain’s elite disabled sailors are an integral part of Skandia Team GBR, and team sponsor Skandia wanted to show their talent in the same manner as their able-bodied teammates. After a frustrating time in Beijing, Britain’s Paralympic class sailors’ gruelling training schedules seem well on track to deliver in 2012, having finished on the podium in all three disciplines at the IFDS World Championships in Holland.

The sailors proved their form again with two silver medals at the Skandia Sail for Gold Regatta, which was held last month at the 2012 sailing venue in Weymouth and Portland. Sonar crew Hannah Stodel, 25, who was born without a lower right arm, said: “We are very lucky in the British team that we are treated like three extra classes to the Olympic Classes team, and it’s great that we have had this chance to get involved in such a great project. “I hope that people are inspired by them, that our disabilities really shine through and that people see that we are just sailors at the end of the day.”  Wilson photographed a selection of sailors including 2010 world silver

medallists John Robertson, Stephen Thomas and Hannah Stodel in the Sonar class and double World Champions Alexandra Rickham and Niki Birrell in the Skud-18 class, as well as 2.4 mR World Championship medallists Megan Pascoe and Helena Lucas. Wilson was able to build on his experience of last year’s Blown Away project, which included Olympic gold medallists Ben Ainslie, Iain Percy, Andrew Simpson and Paul Goodison. Wilson, renowned for his photographs of the 52nd infantry brigade in Helmand province, Afghanistan, combined his trademark slow shutter speed with highly detailed shots to create dramatic photographs which portray

the vulnerability of the sailors in contrast to the sea’s power.   Skandia Team GBR Sailors competing in the Paralympic Classes are: SKUD-18: Helm, Alexandra Rickham, 28, who was injured in a diving accident and crew Niki Birrell, 24 who was born with cerebral palsy. Sonar: Helm, John Robertson, 38, who was paralysed from the chest down after a motor bike accident, mainsheet, Stephen Thomas, 33, a double amputee below the knee after contracting meningococcal septicaemia and Hannah Stodel, 25 who was born without a lower right arm.   2.4mR: Helena Lucas, 35 who has congenital deformity of the upper limbs and Megan Pascoe, 23, who was born with cerebral palsy.

Naval Chronicle resurfaces ACADEMIC publisher, Cambridge University Press, has successfully re-published The Naval Chronicle. Considered to be the most influential maritime publication of its day, The Naval Chronicle comprises of 40 volumes first published between 1719 and 1818, and was originally written to present ‘a General and Biographical History of the Royal Navy of the United Kingdom with a Variety of Original Papers on Nautical Subjects’. Seen today as a key source for British maritime and military history, the wide subject matter covered by the Chronicle includes accounts of battles, notices or promotions, marriages and deaths, reports of court martial, shipwrecks, privateers and prizes, notes on the latest technology, biographies, poetry and letters. Utilising state-of-the-art scanning and print-on-demand technology, the Chronicle has been republished

as a paperback series and contains all the original writings and images, presented in an authentic format. Cambridge University Press launched the Cambridge Library Collection project with the objective of obtaining rare and sometimes fragile books like the Chronicle series and make them widely accessible. The collection launched with 475 titles in July 2009 to coincide with the 475th anniversary of when the Press was granted permission to print ‘all manner of books’ by Letters Patent of Henry VIII. Just over a year later and the Collection has extended its reach to resurrect 1,300 titles that previously were only available in libraries and special collections. Bought individually, most volumes of Chronicle cost £26.99 but the whole set can be purchased for £1,000. www.cambridge.org/navalchronicle

LIFEBOAT crews from Anstruther and Kinghorn went time travelling when they were called to rescue a 35-foot longboat with 14 ‘Vikings’ on board. The alarm was raised on Saturday 4 September when the Viking longboat, crewed by members of “Ardglass Vikings” a charity organisation based in Ireland, got into difficulties while under sail between Largo Bay and Methil docks in the River Forth in Scotland. When the Viking crew tried to row their craft back to shore they were pushed further out to sea by the wind and swell. Anstruther lifeboat station has been operating since 1865 and Coxswain Michael Bruce said: ‘It was a little like we had stepped back in time.’

Bryony’s best

BEIJING bronze medallist Bryony Shaw drew huge confidence from her best World Championship finish as the event came to a close in Kerteminde, Denmark, at the beginning of the month. She missed out on the podium spots at the RS: X Windsurfing

World Championships by the narrowest of margins but she ended her campaign in a personal best of fourth place, tied on points with French rival Charlene Picon. She also picked up a bronze on the 2012 waters at the Skandia Sail for Gold Regatta last month.

MARITIME charity, the Royal Alfred Seafarers’ Society, has launched a nationwide campaign designed to mark the Year of the Seafarer and to capture everyday seafaring sayings. As part of the campaign, the Society is teaming up with the author of naval slang and jargon guide ‘Jackspeak’ Rick Jolly, a former Royal Navy surgeon-captain, to produce a new compendium of modern nautical terms for the next edition of his book. The society is calling on serving and retired members of the Royal Navy and Merchant Navy, fishermen and port workers to get involved in the ‘Royal Alfred Gung Ho Language Workshop’, inviting them to send in the modern words and sayings they use in everyday language, inspired by their time at sea. They include: The cat’s out of the bag which originates from the

instrument of punishment in the Old Navy, the ‘cat o’nine tails’. Brass monkeys originates from the saying ‘cold enough to freeze the balls off a brass monkey’. Freezing temperatures would cause the brass monkey, a plate beside each gun on a ship to hold iron cannon balls, to contract and some of the balls to fall off Batten down – meaning to prepare for trouble or bad weather, originating from ships ‘battening down the hatches’ when bad weather was expected. Three sheets to the wind – originates from an old description of a square sail flapping almost uncontrollably in the wind; now often used to describe an inebriated person! The Royal Alfred Seafarers’ Society provides care predominately to retired seafarers Suggestions can be submitted to www. royalalfredseafarers.co.uk

Irish victory in blustery cup finale

NEWS IN BRIEF Claiming places JAMES French (18) and Matthew Rainback (19) claimed the remaining places in the Under 20 and Under 25 youth places at the RYA’s National Match Racing Series grand final last month at the Weymouth and Portland National Sailing Academy. The RYA National Match Racing grand final takes place from 22-24 October.

City’s dual role THE UK’s first City of Culture, Derry-Londonderry, has announced it will be a yacht sponsor and host city for the Clipper 11-12 Round the World Yacht Race. It will be the first time Northern Ireland has been represented. The city will welcome the ten-strong fleet in July 2012 at the end of the final transatlantic stage of the 40,000-mile race.

Bare-faced cheek

NEWS IN BRIEF Silver jubilee

A STAG party aboard a boat which got out of hand and ended up with all the guests naked has been filmed accidentally by a BBC documentary camera team and is expected to become an internet favourite. Coastguards became suspicious of the boat in Swansea Bay and asked a passing helicopter from RAF Chivenor to take a look.

HYTHE Marina Village celebrates its silver jubilee on 18 and 19 September with a host of events including a nostalgic re-enactment sailpast of 25 boats, marking when the marina was first opened. The events are organised by MDL Marinas, Europe’s largest marina owner and operator, in conjunction with Hythe Marina Association (HMA).

Route to work GAP year students looking for work opportunities can take advantage of watersports courses run at the Rockley Academy in Poole, Dorset. Vocational training and work experience as well as professional career development is available. www.rockley.org.

First for Britain BRITAIN’S first Youth Olympic windsurfing medal was won for Team GB by RYA National Techno Squad sailor Kieran Martin (15) when he secured bronze at the inaugural event in Singapore in August. Martin from Cheadle, Staffordshire, is the former under - 15 world champion.

A Half-Day Workshop will take place at the National Museum of the Royal Navy in Portsmouth Historic Dockyard on Saturday 25September. Experts from different archives

and museums will be on hand to answer research questions and give tips on how to investigate their naval past. At the end of the workshop, there will be the chance to ask questions. Organisers ask that questions are submitted prior to the event by email. Booking is essential. The workshop cost is: Adults £15 Concessions/ Friends £8. Contact 023 9272 3795 or library@ nmrn.org.uk

Sponsorship extended BREWIN Dolphin has announced its continued sponsorship of the Scottish Series, Scotland’s premier sailing regatta, in 2011 on Loch Fyne. The 30-year-old Clyde Cruising Club event has thrived during the investment managers’ 11 year sponsorship generating £1 million for the local economy.

A BBC camera crew following the rescue crew’s activities for a documentary took a 25-second sequence of the stag-party’s barefaced cheek as they waved to the helicopter from the chartered fishing boat. Swansea Coastguard said: “They were running no risk – apart from catching cold...”

New kill cord warning A FATHER and son on holiday in Cornwall were hurled into the sea from a 17-foot dory which then ploughed over them twice, hitting them with its propeller. The men, aged 41 and 25, from Stoke-on-Trent, are in hospital in Truro with serious injuries after the unmanned boat careered out of control near Mevagissey until it ran out of fuel and hit nearby rocks. Nick Ratcliffe, Brixham

Coastguard watch manager, said: “It’s vital that the boat stops immediately after an accident like this. “We urgently recommend that the kill cord is attached to your leg or your personal buoyancy and shouldn’t foul the steering or gear controls.” The MCA is investigating the accident.

Thompson claims silver GREAT Britain’s Nick Thompson secured silver on a tense final day at the Laser World Championships at Hayling Island. With Australia’s two-time World Champion Tom Slingsby commanding a 32 point lead heading into the final two races, Thompson’s focus was on protecting his overall second place. The 24-year-old, who won bronze in 2009 finishined the penultimate race in seventh place to Slingsby’s eighth to keep silver within his sights.

Universal - The Best of the Best

Written by Universal Marina Customers

“Universal is the unknown jewel in the crown of Solent Marinas. From the very first contact I made with the marina I have been totally overwhelmed by the professionalism & kindness of all those I have come into contact with. Whether that be Lauren in the marina office, Mike from Universal Yacht Care or Mick from Hamble Yacht Services – nothing is too much trouble. The facilities – both afloat & ashore – are without doubt the best in the Solent. The situation of Universal is beautiful, nestled in the wooded banks of the Hamble River.” Dr A Naylor

“My wife and I are in our second year as berth holders and we are very happy with every aspect of Universal Marina. Not only is it set in a wonderful rural location on the River Hamble, it is also situated in what is, in my opinion, the nicest stretch of the river. The staff are always cheerful, very friendly, and helpful. All of this gives the place a very positive and welcoming atmosphere.” Max York, Gina Anne “I have sailed for many years and had experience of marinas, both at home and abroad. Universal fulfills all my needs; but more than that it provides a total experience. A mixture of boat yard and Business Park, the marina is a welcoming and friendly environment, providing high quality facilities and infrastructure. The staff are both knowledgeable and helpful, and have assisted me greatly in commissioning and upgrading my boat. Always able to provide the right contact for that invaluable snippet of expert advice or quality work to be done. The on site businesses, from marine engineering to catering, all function at the same high level. With knowledge, care and a clear focus on providing everyone who uses Universal with what they each want. No one size fits all here. My thanks to you and your staff for making my first year at Universal such an enjoyable one.” Nigel Edwards, EOS

“I have not met a soul that has not made me feel totally welcome, Gilly (my wife) & I have just been talking about the move….. ‘the best thing we have ever done’…. For her to say that in connection with a boat is praise indeed” “The staff are friendly and cooperative and actively look after our investment – which is very important. The facilities are always maintained to a high standard and having a decent restaurant on site is a big bonus when you are tired. Washrooms are welcoming and very clean and there is a good feeling of security in the marina. Car parking is excellent.” Des Cahill, Lady Sandra. “We moved Fantasea (Dehler 36) to Universal in Spring 2006 just as the dredging of the river and the establishment of the first class waterside facilities was moving towards completion. We were attracted by the location and ‘rural ambiance’ and the planned developments of the shore side facilities. The move to Universal has really turned out well for us - and we look forward to future years in the Marina.” Dr and Mrs T Rowe,

IF YOU WANT AN IDYLLIC HAVEN ON A BUSY CENTRAL HIGHWAY, TRY UNIVERSAL MARINA RIVER HAMBLE “A most friendly and accommodating modern family marina offering first class support and services. It is already a popular home to many Southerlys making full use of their lifting keel potential. The marina is next to the nature reserve with riverside walks in both directions to local amenities without being on top of them. More importantly there are no added fees or hidden charges for electricity, water, Wifi and VAT as all are inclusive in the annual charges. Very refreshing approach of a clear direct and upfront policy.” Dr Mounce, Tullygay

“Having been part of the “Universal family” for almost 10 years we feel so at home when we arrive at the Marina and our berth – living some distance from the Marina it is very reassuring to know the team at the marina check our boat daily and can be relied upon in the event of unforeseen happenings – Great team of really nice people – thank you” John & Cathy McKenzie. “Universal offers me, as a charter business, a lovely mix of commercial efficiency combined with a friendly, ‘family-run’ feel which is not only nice for me to work in but is also noticed by my clients – most of whom know a number of the other Marinas and are very pleasantly surprised on discovering Universal for the first time!” Kim Hartley,

Gearing up for superstock THE fourth round of this year’s P1 SuperStock Championship takes place on Sunday September 12. The opportunity to watch the UK’s premier marine motorsport at this year’s nautical extravaganza offers visitors to the Southampton Boat Show the opportunity to witness fast and furious powerboat racing action with up to 20 of Britain’s best offshore racing teams competing on Southampton Water. After two outstanding events in Penzance, which also hosted the first-ever SuperStock Rocks music festival, and Galway, where 95,000 spectators walked through the gates during the opening weekend of the city’s annual powerboat festival, the fleet returned to the excellent facilities at the Pwllheli Sailing Club in north Wales for round three. Following Powerboat P1’s acquisition of the former Honda Formula 4-Stroke Championship earlier this year and its relaunch as the P1 SuperStock Championship, there has been a resurgence in Britain’s leading powerboat racing series with Sunday’s Grand Prix in Southampton containing this season’s highest entry list amid reports of a happier frame of mind in the pit area than in the recent years. With the PSP Southampton Boat Show providing an inspirational

backdrop for the P1’s pilots, the four races on Southampton Water will be crucial for the crews hoping to seize the initiative ahead of the last race in Lymington in October. Premier Cru occupies top spot in the 150 Class after dominating the first half of the season. John Wilson and Neil Scarborough have been ruthless in their assault on the SuperStock Championship title, winning seven-out-of-eight races this season to give them a commanding 29-point lead at the head of the standings. The only team to beat the red machine this year has been the all-female outfit, Eclipse, crewed by Rose Lores and Sara Cureton and seemingly Premier Cru’s only realistic challengers to the throne. The ladies enjoyed their first-ever win at the Galway Grand Prix of the Sea and have regularly been chasing the champions-elect across the finishing line. After being cruelly robbed of a possible first-ever title in 2009, Wilson’s Premier Cru team is determined to secure gold this time around. After her move closer to Southampton’s shores from Surrey in August, Lores will do anything to win her home Grand Prix. This feeling is also shared by Flying

The sponsorship will allow Helena, who achieved a top ten finish at Beijing in the 2.4m R class, to get a new boat for her 2012 bid where she hopes to be among the medals in 2012.

Their only defeat came at the previous race in North Wales when engine problems allowed Rough Cut Racing to steal in for a first triumph. While the Matlock-based outfit already has one hand on the championship trophy, the race for second is extremely tense with only 15 points separating Maurice Lacroix, Rough Cut Racing and Evans Heritage Developments. The drama will unfold on The River Test with part of the racecourse running in front of Mayflower Park. The pit area is at Ocean Village.

A HUGE £650,000 programme to upgrade Lerwick’s small boat harbour is under way after Lerwick Boating Club and the port authority joined forces to make improvements. These include providing a larger wooden boat deck for junior sail training, including a new launching ramp and a new wall and amenities. The main part of the seawall is scheduled for completion this year and the boat deck in 2011.

A temple of sailing Geoff Holt The former professional yachtsman who was paralysed in a swimming accident and inspired sailors when he became the first quadriplegic to sail the Atlantic. THE French are undoubtedly good at many things; culture, food, fashion, joie de vivre, not that we Brits would care to admit it. At most traditional sports, rugby and football for example, our rivalry is fierce and the euphoria of a win over the other is matched only by our shared national outrage for failure. Anyone remember this year’s football? But sailing, specifically record-breaking, long-distance yacht racing which pushes the boundaries

of human endurance is mostly the domain of the French. It is their forte. For example, less than six months ago, trimaran Groupama 3, skippered by Franck Cammas, set the new Jules Verne record for sailing around the world in little over 48 days and 7 hours. He beat fellow Frenchman Bruno Peyron’s record of 50 days on Orange II set in 2005. In fact, the past six holders of this particular record are all French. But these successes are not completely the preserve of the French. Indeed many of our most heralded offshore yachtsmen and women are as equally well known in France as they are at home; Caffari, Golding, Thompson et al. British sailors Pete Goss and Dame Ellen Macarthur have both been awarded France’s highest honour, the Légion d’Honneur, for their services to sailing. I wonder how many of us could name any of their sailors;

Photo: Michel Jamoneau

Kersauson? Desjoyeaux? Joyon? Peyron? Cammas? Tabarly? And what chance a French yachtsman being made a Knight of our Realm? With a proletariat passion for sailing that exists from primary school children upwards, it is unsurprising that in France, specifically Brittany, you should find a City of Sailing, - the Cité de la Voile. And unlike the stuffy maritime museums we are more accustomed to, there’s not a replica 18th century galleon in sight. Nor are there burgundy coloured walls displaying oversized gilt-framed oil paintings of some long-forgotten sea battle. No, this museum is quite simply a

celebration of yacht racing and the modern history of ocean sailing. It is centred around Éric Tabarly, France’s own yachting deity who, in terms of deference by Brits, is matched only by our very own Sir RKJ. Sadly Tabarly was lost at sea 12 years ago, his body never found, but his legend lives on in this 21st century temple to him. OK, so there’s no mention anywhere of our yachting gods in the temple. Macarthur, Knox-Johnston, Chichester, Slocum, Rose, are all excluded. The French built this tour de force. It is a celebration of the part their sailors have played in pushing the boundaries of yachting so the

exclusion of the Brits is perhaps not surprising. The Cité de la Voile has only been open for two years and has already attracted nearly a quarter of a million visitors. At €11 entry fee per adult, it was a prudent investment for the region too. Set over two floors plus an onwater showcase which boasts several historic racing yachts, including four of Éric Tabarly’s famous Pen Duick yachts, the museum is a full-on, celebration of yachting. Visitors have the opportunity, through a range of hands-on exhibits, to learn about the evolution of yacht design, construction

techniques, construction materials, sail materials, ropes, winches, navigation equipment and weather routing developments. Using innovative displays like a life-size replica of the interior of Pen Duick 2, it is interesting to contrast and compare boats and equipment from only a few decades ago with those of today. How quickly we forget. On my first Atlantic crossing in 1982, we had only a single-side-band radio for communications and navigation was performed with a sextant. The SSB broke after the second day at sea. Their senses assaulted and their imaginations ignited, visitors have the opportunity to conclude their visit by a sail on the museum’s own yacht out into the Atlantic, albeit only for an hour and, of course, weather permitting. The location of the museum is

itself a paradox. Set in the sprawling redundant commercial docklands of Lorient, the Cité de la Voile sits at the mouth of the River Blavet. Lying adjacent to this sublime, futuristic temple to yachting, and in stark contrast to it, are the dour, grey submarine pens built by the Nazis during the Second World War. They are imposing but above all, haunting. This was home to the U-Boats responsible for sinking thousands of tons of allied shipping and the killing of countless allied seafarers. A 20-feet thick concrete roof protects seven U-Boat pens where Admiral Doenitz operated his Wolfpack in an effort to win the war of the Atlantic. They serve as an everlasting reminder to us all, but mostly the French, of that occupation. Between the U-Boat pens and the

Cité de la Voile, on an area of open waste-ground exist five massive modern yet innocuous hangars, grey slab-panelled cubes with only the occasional window set up high, no external clue to their purpose. Their contents would have remained a secret too had I not found three with their enormous hangar doors slightly ajar. Peering through the cracks, I could barely hide my excitement at seeing the legendary giants within. Stripped of their rigging and suspended only by webbing from

Weather rules Cowes classic

Riding the crest of a wave

Shelley Jory-Leigh British Powerboat Champion www.shelleyjory.com

A TOP fleet of Powerboat racers competed throughout the weekend of the 2010 British Powerboat Festival at Cowes in a variety of races. The 2010 winner of the trophy had to compete in the UIM BPRC Marathon World Cup - the Cowes 100 mile race and the Cowes-TorquayCowes 170 mile course with the fastest average speeds. The Trophy was commissioned by Sir Alfred Harmsworth and first presented in 1903. The Cowes-Torquay-Cowes classic is known as one of the oldest and most demanding endurance challenges in the world and saw the Solent awash with powerboats as more than 30 teams lined up for the historic race. The line up included past winners in Red FPT(2008), Uno Embassy (1975), Dry Martini (1979) and three times winner Cinzano (1984, 1985 and 2009) battling to secure the coveted title once again. The Red FPT of Fabio Buzzi secured victory completing a dominant double triumph at the British Powerboat Festival and with it the coveted Hamsworth Trophy. Powered by the 2,400 horsepower

of four Fiat Powered engines, Buzzi – alongside fellow Italian Emili o Riganti and Englishman Simon Powell – fought off the early challenges from Team Asia, Hot Lemon and Kerakoll, to take a fourth Cowes-Torquay-Cowes title in the worst weather in history. Italian, Mario Invernizzi, and Englishman, Peter Dredge, in Kerakoll crossed the line second. Third place went to local competitors, Vee Ganjavian and Gareth Williams of Southampton, in Fury, a 39-foot Phantom, displaying an example of seamanship and bravery over weight and power as they took the most direct route home in dangerously mixed conditions. Last year’s race winner, Cinzano with Markus Hendricks, Eric Smillie

and Simon Wood Power on board narrowly missed out on a podium position finishing fourth. As last year Mother Nature was also a winner on the day with fewer than half of the 30 boats completing the race. The Cowes-Poole-Cowes race winners were Brian Peedell and Dave Simpkins in C13 in the Class 3C Race. Class 3B was won by B92 Adrian Fousler and Stewart Dick and The Club Race was taken by Going Lean A42, piloted by Dean Gibbs with Jan Falkowski in the navigator’s seat.

LAST month also saw British Powerboat Racers taking on the World to come out on top. Mark Williams from Lowestoft and Oulton Broad Motor Boat Club was crowned World Formula 4 Champion once again following the final round of the competition in Portugal at the end of July. Mark who previously won the World Title in 2007 was joined on the Podium by Great Britain’s Brian Block who secured the Bronze Medal in the competition. Britain’s Scott Curtis and Brian Shulver finished fifth abnd sixth overall respectively proving the nation’s dominance in the sport. Whilst the F4 drivers were showing their experience a group of British youngsters were also taking on the World in the Formula Future World Championship at Carr Mill in Lancashire. Nine juniors from The Honda youth RIB Challenge and Circuit competed with more than 60 others from eight nations. The competition is designed to introduce youngsters to the world of powerboat racing by challenging them in boat handling skills in a manoeuvring discipline and parallel slalom whilst competing against each

other and the clock. This was the first time the UK had played host to this type of competition and fielded a relatively novice team compared to the experience of the other nations. The British team were led by Honda Youth RIB Northern Ireland regional winner Rory Flannigan who will this month compete in the finals of the competition at the Southampton Boat Show. While all of team GBR did their families and country proud one youngster was determined to secure the first medal position for the team. Jordan Muckles of Wear Boating Association exceeded everyone’s expectations not only securing a medal for team GBR but racking up a total of three World Championship titles and a Bronze medal in the continental championship. The youngsters in our sport are the future and with the correct support and training they could top the tables.

Skandia Sail for Gold THE fifth installment of the Skandia Sail for Gold regatta got underway last month and saw the international fleet compete over six days for the final event of the ISAF Sailing World Cup. The Weymouth and Portland National Sailing Academy, the 2012 Olympic venue, threw everything at the competitors– saving the best for last, with a medal race day that was vintage British summer - wind, rain, near calms and even a little sunshine right at the end. The huge entry of 975 sailors from 57 nations, spread across 712 boats in 13 classes, returned home having learned to expect the unexpected in August 2012. Sailors had a tough week on the waters of Weymouth. The Paralympic classes concluded their sailing on Friday 13th, with Hessels, Rossen and Van de Veen (NED) dominating the Sonar class to take gold. Seguin (FRA) took victory in the 2.4mR class, and it was gold for Fitzgibbon and Cox of Australia in the Skud class. For the remaining ten classes it was a close battle to make the final cut and qualify for the final medal day. The final cut was big, as more than 900 sailors were reduced to a mere 100.

On Medal Day the Australians and French dominated proceedings. The Australian Sailing Team picked up gold in four classes; Nicky Souter, Nina Curtis and Olivia Price in the Women’s Match Racing, the Skud-18 was won by Daniel Fitzgibbon and Rachael Cox on Friday, Tom Slingsby took gold in the Laser Men, and Nathan Outteridge and Iain Jensen made up the top quartet with a win in the 49er class. The French team pushed Australia all the way, with three gold medals – Pierre Leboucher and Vincent Garos winning the 470 Men, Charline Picon took gold home in the RS:X Women, and in the 2.4mR, it was Damien Seguin who did the business for France. The Dutch team then edged the home nation out of the gold medal

table with wins in two classes, Marit Bouwmeester in the Laser Radial and Udo Hessels, Marcel van de Veen and Mischa Rossen in the Sonar Skandia GBR’s best achievement was in the Finn class with Giles Scott taking gold from his fellow team mates including triple Olympic gold and silver medalist Ben Ainslie. Ben returned to Finn competition nearly two years to the day after he won his third gold medal in Beijing, Scott’s win in Weymouth broke a six year undefeated run by Ainslie in this class, and has shown that Scott is certainly a forced to be reckoned with heading into 2012. Scott said: “It feels very good. I’m really pleased to have sailed well this week and to come away with a win. It was still quite stressful going into the medal race despite my lead. I was in

Simple checks can help avoid expensive errors By Sticky Stapylton

MANY moons ago we were sailing a Contessa 32 and we were going through the engine checks prior to the day’s sail. On checking the raw water filter we found a supermarket bag had been sucked in and we would have had an engine overheating problem if we

had not cleared the debris. The other day, on carrying out the same checks on a Bavaria 38, the raw water filter was a mess (see photo). Whether the weed had been sucked in just before the engine had been switched off or was the accumulation over a few days, I know not; but it is important that you check your engine before setting off on every occasion. On long passages I try to remember when under power to stop every four hours or so to check the state of the engine. A quick visual check over the outside of the engine will show up if any leaks have developed and once the engine oil has settled a quick dip of the dipstick will show if the oil is going somewhere other than into the sump. I remember the story of a friend who bought a smart new Danish yacht, jumped into the boat and on a windless day motored over to Cowes from the mainland oblivious to the engine alarm screaming its head off.

Sadly he had failed to check that the engine inlet seacock was turned on. Luckily he made it on to a mooring but found his engine had seized as a result of the overheating. This year we made our usual checks and I asked a member of the crew to check the raw water filter for rubbish. The boat was fitted with a sail drive with a knurled nob which has to be turned several times to open up the seacock. We started the engine after the checks and we had water coming out of the exhaust. It was checked by eye by a crew member on the pontoon but we checked the outflow immediately after start up. I now teach that you should wait for at least 20 seconds after start up, so that you can confirm that the initial splodge of water is not that which was in the engine after the previous shut down, and that the cock is still not properly open. In this instance, the noise of the water coming out was totally

different and we found that the seacock needed a further couple of turns to ensure a proper flow round the heat exchanger and a proper flow out of the exhaust.

Making toast Many modern boats do not have a grill on the stove. Some owners buy contraptions which can be rigged

over the burner and toast can be made this way. But why bother with the added expense of a gadget? All I do is pop the bread into a saucepan over a moderate heat, and as long as you chase the bread round the pan at a fair old rate of knots. You could say there is a little bit too much carbon, but you can always cover that up with marmalade, honey or whatever!

Long distance sailing I have three people interested in making a long passage, two to build up their mileage and one to make a Yachtmaster Ocean passage. I need two more crew. We will need a boat coded for offshore, so if we get the right number of people we may go for a larger than normal sail training boat. Email me at instructor@sail-help.co.uk

IT was five years ago at the 2005 Southampton Boat Show that global yachtsman Mike Golding and Pippa Blake, founding Trustee of the Sir Peter Blake Trust for environmental awareness, launched The Green Blue, the joint environment programme of the British Marine Federation and the Royal Yachting Association. What a change we have seen in those five years. Environmental issues are now at the forefront of people’s minds, and sustainability is high on the agenda of major events such as the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. The Green Blue has truly come of age and is now a respected recognised brand within the recreational boating sector. We’ve already worked with hundreds of organisations to help them save energy and become more sustainable, and will be continuing

to do so for the foreseeable future. To mark the occasion The Green Blue will be celebrating its fifth birthday on Monday 13 September at the Southampton Boat Show where we’ll be showcasing our progress with a review of our achievements and acknowledging the support of so many who were, and continue to be central to the making of this unique initiative. Why not pop along to the RYA stand (E037) at any time during the week to see some of our many successes and important milestones. Our partnership with Jeremy Rogers Ltd and the journey to create ‘Calypso’, a new greener version of the iconic Contessa 32, marks one of those important milestones. During Calypso’s build we have been privy to the debate on how to hold fast to green principles whilst achieving something realistic and desirable for both boat builders and yachtsmen. Calypso offers a great opportunity to show visitors and exhibitors a real example of sustainability in action. Come and take a look at marina berth M502, meet the team and the companies who have contributed to

her sustainable features; and read her story at http://buildingcalypso. blogspot.com/ As well as showcasing the programme’s successes over the last five years The Green Blue will be offering some practical advice for businesses at a free Breakfast Briefing on Tuesday 14 September, from 8.45 to 9.45am in the Winchester Room, Holiday Inn. Hosted by Dan Reading, The Green Blue’s Sustainable Facilities Officer, the briefing will help businesses to make sense of a range of environmental opportunities and legislation. Topics will include the Carbon Reduction Commitment Energy Efficiency Scheme, resource efficiency and renewable technologies. This is a must for managers of marine businesses who are yet to register their energy consumption with the Environment Agency or who are considering investing in renewable technologies. To register your interest contact Dan on 02380 604242 or email dan.reading@ thegreenblue.org.uk

And last but not least look out for the re-launch of The Green Directory - an online resource hosted by Sailing Networks. The directory has been given a face lift but continues to feature a range of boating products and services from cleaning and maintenance to resource efficiency offered as alternatives that are less harmful on the environment. Visit www.sailingnetworks.com/green to see its new look. We hope to see you on board Calypso or at the RYA stand. For more information about any of our

activities at the show or about The Green Blue in general please email: info@thegreenblue.org.uk, call 02380 604 100 or visit us at www. thegreenblue.org.uk The Green Blue is on RYA Stand E037 at the boat show Contessa 32 Calypso and The Green Blue – Marina Berth M502

Learning where it’s warm and dry

SPONSORED BY

Training does not always mean on-board tuition. Perfect for the colder months when boating becomes the realm of those with polar bear constitutions, your time could instead be well invested doing an RYA shorebased course or support course. Adrian Porter reports.

RYA shorebased courses are designed to decode the black arts of navigation, pilotage, passage planning and meteorology and are taught in a focused environment, away from the water. The main courses are: Basic Navigation and Safety, Day Skipper, Coastal Skipper/Yachtmaster Offshore and Yachtmaster Ocean. With the exception of Basic

Navigation and Safety, all of the courses require 40 hours of teaching, though how you go about putting the time together is dependent on you and your lifestyle: Intensive residential courses usually last five days. A series of sessions can divide your course into two to three weekends of day sessions, evening sessions spread out across seven or eight weeks and everything in-between. Structures vary from school to school.

Distance learning is the most flexible option. With your trusty computer, supplied software and learning aids, you will have up to twelve months to finish, though the average is 15 weeks. Basic Navigation and Safety is a short course taught over 16 hours and is normally accomplished over a weekend, though session and distance learning are also available. Aimed to be an introduction to navigation and safety awareness at sea, this course

Wake up when you want! The main benefit of a Sundown Hatch Cover is to stop the early morning sunlight from coming through your hatch, and waking you up when you want those extra zzzzzz’s after a great day on the water. Sundown Hatch Covers are not permanently fitted to your boat. The shock cord can be cut to custom fit your boat and the cover is easy to remove and stow. When fitted you can still open your hatch to let in fresh air but also keep the elements out. A Sundown Hatch Cover will keep your boat cool in the summer and protect your interior from sun damage. An excellent gift for friends and family who are hard to buy for. £29.99 plus P&P

also serves as a refresher course for out of practice skippers. Day Skipper is a great starting point for any newcomer, sail or power. Requiring no experience, this course offers a comprehensive introduction to seamanship, coastal navigation, pilotage, position fixing and much more. The Coastal Skipper/ Yachtmaster Offshore course is suitable for those with the Day Skipper qualification and builds on your existing knowledge. The Yachtmaster Ocean course takes you one step further into the dominion of astronavigation and the use of sextants. Suited to those wanting to make ocean passages, this is the most advanced of the shorebased courses offered. Once you have completed any of the shorebased and corresponding practical courses, you may want to pursue your appropriate RYA Certificate of Competence to prove your expertise. These certificates will also require

you to have accumulated a good amount of experience on the water. Yachtmaster Offshore for example, requires 50 days at sea, five days as skipper, 2,500 miles covered with five passages of more than 60 miles of which two must be overnight and another two with you as skipper. So if you want your certificate, start filling in your log book!

Short Courses Short courses, typically one day, are designed to imbue the participant with a set of practical skills, expanding the boater’s spectrum of abilities. First Aid will teach you how to deal with many types of medical emergency out at sea. The course includes topics from seasickness and hypothermia to CPR and medical assistance by VHF. VHF and Radar courses are separate one day courses that will teach you to use your equipment. The SRC (VHF) licence is a legal requirement for those with a marine radio. The Diesel Engine course is available to those wanting to understand more about their engine. Sea Survival will teach you survival techniques, medical assistance and liferaft drills. Finally, the RYA/ISAF Offshore safety course will teach the Sea Survival course and then spend another day teaching heavy weather seamanship, fire fighting and other emergencies. This course is suited to crews wanting to race.

Books to get on course with Wiley Nautical THOSE making full use of every single summer second out on the water might be hard pressed to fit in any more training than they have to. Though as the autumnal months arrive and the daylight slowly recedes, we find ourselves sobering up and ready to expand our horizons in the classroom once again. It is about this time of year that many of us will start considering RYA shorebased and short courses to help augment our seafaring skills base. To assist with our studies, the RYA have a healthy amount of literature to suit all their courses but this is by no means the only high quality material available. Wiley Nautical is a publisher with some top books written by the highest ranks of boating people. Their range covers the whole spectrum of courses commonly offered. Adrian Porter examines the list of recommended books and the courses they support so well.

IF you want to buy a boat and career off into the sunset with no training, you can, but it is not recommended. But, if you want to equip yourself with a VHF radio to call for help when you likely run yourself aground or worse, you first must have your Marine Radio Short Range (SRC) Certificate. The SRC course, else known as the VHF course, lasts one day and will simply teach you how to use your radio. VHF Afloat is the perfect study guide for this course and it provides step-by-step illustrated instructions to using your equipment. Also covering DSC (Digital Selective Calling), this book will be as valuable onboard as it was in the classroom.

Navigation: the Cunliffe effect

THOSE with a bit of horsepower at their fingertips may be considering shorebased courses such as the Day Skipper, the Basic Navigation & Safety course, or are perhaps in the process of swotting up for their Advanced Powerboat practical. Whatever course you are considering (or even if you are not) consider the The RIB and Sportsboat Handbook, now in its third edition. Written by master mariner Peter White, this book contains everything a good powerboater should know and is suited to all levels of instruction and boater. Ceri Davies, RYA instructor and owner of Swansea Water Sports (www. swanseawatersports.com) commented that “every powerboater should have a copy of Peter Whites’ Handbook somewhere on-board”. With a recommendation like that, no more needs to be said.

TOM Cunliffe has been a professional yachtsman for 37 years and has understandably become a fount of nautical knowledge to be reckoned with. With a collection of books to his name, two published by Wiley Nautical are Inshore Navigation and Coastal and Offshore Navigation. Inshore Navigation is a book containing all the rudimentary principles of navigation and aims to help the average landlubber get to grips with the basic concepts and practicalities. Suitable for yachtsmen and powerboaters alike, this publication should help anyone commencing the Basic Navigation & Safety course or similar beginner course. Coastal and Offshore Navigation is the book you will be wanting once you have developed a solid foundation in navigation. Aimed at those with some inshore experience and ready to take their sailing or powerboating to the coast and beyond, this title furthers your knowledge and sees its concluding chapters tying up its lessons with proper passage planning and good navigational practices. Those coming up to this sort of level may want to consider the shorebased Day Skipper course. Inshore Navigation ISBN: 9780470753897

The RIB and Sportsboat Handbook (Third Edition) Peter White ISBN: 9780470697283

Coastal and Offshore Navigation ISBN: 9780470753903 Both written by Tom Cunliffe

Ocean farer THOSE going the extra mile and planning to make their first ocean passage should be thinking of getting their shorebased Yachtmaster Ocean qualification first. This course requires your navigation skills to be of Coastal Skipper/ Yachtmaster Offshore level as it will be tackling the advanced endeavours of ocean passage making, astro navigation and using a sextant. This 40-hour course can either be taught as an intensive week long course, a series of short sessions or even by distance learning but however you take on the Yachtmaster Ocean, be sure to have a copy of Celestial Navigation by Tom Cunliffe (that name again!). This book will greatly assist your learning of the age old art of navigation through its wise words, clear diagrams and worked examples. The new edition rises above its competitors by offering its readers access to downloadable material and online video demonstrations to speed your learning.

Companions Revision Guides/Emergency Reference TIME spent in the classroom is time well spent indeed. Through doing a number of courses you will undoubtedly be bestowed with a vast amount of know-how and quite possibly a library’s worth of books to prove it. However, should a problem occur on the water and you find yourself frustratingly drawing a blank, running to your books donned in your dripping wet oilies and desperately thumbing through a 200-page book, is not a situation we ever want to find ourselves in. Instead, having a splash proof, colour illustrated set of 24 cards containing all the right information in a concise and clear format, is a very handy, if not essential addition to your on-board apparatus. The companion series produced by Wiley Nautical consists of three titles:

The Cockpit Companion is the best selling of the three and with good reason - designed to be a concise summary of ‘everything a sailor should know’, it contains information on lights, shapes,

buoys, Rule of the Road, tides, flags, knots and breakdowns. It is the perfect on-board reference guide for all general sailing matters and is also an excellent learning aide for those on the Day Skipper and

Yachtmaster courses. The VHF Companion details all the different types of radio call you will ever make, whether it be hailing another boat, routine communications with port authorities or sending out the dreaded Mayday call. Covering both VHF and DSC, this companion will take the nervous hesitation out of lifting the transceiver and will allow you to transmit with confidence. The VHF Companion is also an excellent study guide for those looking to acquire their Marine Radio Short Range Certificate. The Emergency Companion is the essential guide to all things pear shaped. At sea the most common emergency situations include fire, taking on water, running aground, loss of power, man overboard, extreme weather and just being

hopelessly lost. These cards offer valuable information on coping with these situations at a time when tensions can be high and the pressure is on. There is of course no substitute for a well trained skipper and a fully briefed crew, but having the information on hand will never hurt. The Cockpit Companion (Revised Edition) Basil Mosenthal ISBN: 9781904475088 The VHF Companion Sara Hopkinson ISBN: 9780470714416 Emergency Companion Jon Winge ISBN: 9780470748695

General Study THE following books will aid your general seafaring knowledge as well as assist you on many of the courses, should you choose to embark on them.

Pocket knowledge

King of the COLREGs

THE Skippers Pocketbook is described as a ‘pocket database’ of all the things you may have trouble remembering out at sea. Listed for the Media Award at the British Nautical Awards 2001, this obliging publication is very popular thanks to its supreme helpfulness out on the water. It also covers the RYA Yachtmaster and Day Skipper courses, making it a great revision aid.

LEARN the Nautical Rules of the Road helps you do exactly that. Written to help you learn and understand the COLREGs: the International Regulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea (or Rule of the Road), this book contains step-by-step guides and anecdotes to help you mentally absorb all the rules one should obey when out at sea. In conjunction with the book, there is a free online test on the Wiley Nautical website to help you monitor your progress.

DESPITE tuning into shipping forecasts, checking the predictions pinned to the harbour master’s office, or getting out your iPhone for the latest information, we have all still been caught out in bad weather that ‘shouldn’t have been there’. It’s a frustrating situation and one that could be improved by simply understanding the basic principles that govern the weather and how it affects our floating out on the water.

How to get involved We asked Rory, who is the 2008, 2009 and 2010 Northern Ireland regional champion in the Honda RYA Youth RIB Championship for his top tips on how you could get involved in RIB and powerboat racing. “The advice I’d give is to join a yacht club or a power boating club and to go to as many events as possible to experience the sport. Also to do some training courses such as RYA Powerboat level 1 and 2 to get started. “First time you get in the boat can be quite daunting but the skills are fairly easy to pick up. It’s easier than driving a car as there is less to learn. “My advice for beginners is to take their time and before they know they will have mastered the basics and will bring them exceptional enjoyment.” If you want to find out more about powerboat racing or the Honda RYA Youth RIB championship visit www. rya.org.uk

SOUTHAMPTON BOAT SHOW SPECIAL

New boats at the show CORNISH Crabbers are set to be one of the highlights of this year’s Show with the launch of The Cornish Crabber 26. Designed to be the ultimate family cruiser, the Crabber 26 has been created by David Thomas and is the latest addition to the Cornish Crabber family, continuing their celebrated heritage of traditional British sailing boats. With the remit being for a wellmannered family cruiser with shallow draft and full standing headroom, Cornish Crabbers secured five orders on the books before the build was even complete. Westwood Marine will be showing the A390, the first 39-foot aft-cabin motor cruiser built in Britain for several years. Greg Houlston of Westwood Marine said: “As a small boat builder in a recession, rather than release some of our excellent staff, we decided to keep them and develop our very own 39-foot aft-cabin boat from scratch. With the assistance of leading marine architect Andrew Wolstenholme, we have already achieved five orders.” Charles Watson Marine will be displaying a selection of sailing yachts, including the latest Contest 50CS and two new boats from the Winner range of Dutch cruise racers.

Barnet Marine will help fly the flag for smaller craft, with a range of XS RIBS, Pelican and Prijon canoes, kayaks and paddling accessories. Among its collection, Barnet Marine will offer eight foot entry-level kayaks for as little as £279 in the shape of Pursuit 80 and Apex 80 models. Princess Yachts International will unveil three new models. Making their world debut at the show will be the remodeled Princess 42 and the brand new Princess 64, whilst the stunning Princess V52 makes her first appearance at a UK show. Berthon Boat Company will show a selection of its Windy Boats. Ben Toogood of Windy said: “The new Windy 40 will appeal to the experienced yachtsman for whom performance and sea keeping are key.” Sunseeker International will be boosting the show’s wow factor with a collection of 12 yachts, including the world launch of its 40 metre motor yacht and Manhattan 63 flybridge motor yacht. Key Yachting will be exhibiting several boats on marina berths 343 to 347. The J/95 will be on the Try a Boat feature and the Grand Soleil 46 will make its UK debut. The Grand Soleil 46 is the winner of The European Yacht of the Year 2009/2010 and costs around €333,000 excluding VAT.

SOUTHAMPTON BOAT SHOW SPECIAL

Finding your way around The Marina THE show boasts Europe’s largest purpose built marina, with construction of the 2km long pontoons taking well over a month. This year, National Boat Shows expects to host approximately 350 boats on the marina, which is considered by many to be the crowning point of the show. From ocean rowing boats to luxury ocean cruisers and everything in between – the PSP Southampton Boat Show marina is a real summer highlight.

HMS Dauntless THE show hosts the Royal Navy’s latest warship, HMS Dauntless for a three day visit from Sunday 12 – Tuesday 14 September. Access to the ship has been arranged for two afternoons, giving visitors an opportunity to climb aboard and explore the Type 45 Destroyer. Commissioned in June 2010, HMS Dauntless is the most advanced warship in the world. More frequently she is moored alongshide the Royal Navy’s oldest commissioned warship HMS Victory in Portsmouth Dockyard. Built to provide air defence to an aircraft carrier and capable of defending ships in her fleet from the most sophisticated anti-ship missiles and aircraft, the ship is one of the world’s greatest engineering feats. Visitors to HMS Dauntless will learn about her state of the art power and propulsion and world class weapon systems, experience the feelings of a sailor in full body armour and view the 40 knot Pacific 24 Rigid Inflatable Boats used by sailors and marines during antipiracy boarding operations.

Captain Richard Powell said: “This is an excellent opportunity for members of the public to experience the conditions, facilities and equipment onboard the Royal Navy’s finest and newest war ship.”

Feature boats THE marina will also host an exciting selection of feature boats, which are always popular with visitors to the Show. The first to sign up was show favourite, the University of Southampton’s research vessel, Callista. Science ship Callista is on the marina for the duration of the Show and encourages curious minds to come aboard to see, feel and touch the fascinating ‘other world’ of life beneath the ocean. Once on board Callista, visitors can take part in real experiments, see live specimens and play with the onboard gadgets. Also on the marina will be Calypso from the Jeremy Rogers yard, a greener version of the iconic Contessa 32. Embracing hybrid engines, hydrogen fuel cell technology, solar panels and reclaimed and recycled fixtures and fittings, Calypso

embodies a green vision, a classic yacht, a legendary boat builder and a hunger for sustainability, all supported by the only bespoke environmental boating programme of its kind from the British Marine Federation and the Royal Yachting Association – The Green Blue.

Centenary celebrations for Furneaux Riddall Furneaux Riddall, leading marine electrical supplier will celebrate 100 years of trading at the show. Back in 1910 when lighting came from burning piped gas and batteries as we call them today were just being invented Portsmouth based Mr Furneaux and Mr Riddall decided it would be good to develop this ‘new’ technology. Furneaux Riddall was born, initially servicing the vast battery banks in large homes that were then used for domestic lighting, gradually evolving into a major trade and retail supplier of marine electrical items and Spectra Watermakers. It is still in the hands of the third generation of the same family and retains its Portsmouth roots. The company will be celebrating on stand G048 in Ocean Hall.

Walk on water Following the success of Hydrozorbing at the 2008 Show, Water Warriors return. These giant inflatable spheres will be floating on a pool in Solent Park and will allow visitors to climb in and literally walk on water, with absolutely no danger of getting wet – perfect for the conservative thrill-seeker!

Girlguiding The Girl Guides will be celebrating their centenary year at the show. Visitors to the Girlguiding South West England stand will be able to try out kayaking machines and other fun activities, learning about the water based opportunities that Girlguiding offers its members. The Girl Guides actively encourage boating, with qualifications at all levels from the Brownie Water Safety Badge to Adult Instructor, equipping members with the knowledge and experience to keep safe and have fun both on and around water.

It was five years ago at the 2005 Southampton Boat Show that global yachtsman Mike Golding and Pippa Blake, founding Trustee of the Sir Peter Blake Trust for environmental awareness, launched The Green Blue, the joint environment programme of the British Marine Federation and the Royal Yachting Association. Environmental issues are now at the forefront of people’s minds, and sustainability is high on the agenda of major events such as the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. The Green Blue has truly come of age and is now a respected recognised brand within the recreational boating sector. They have already worked with hundreds of organisations to help them save energy and become more sustainable, and will be continuing to do so for the foreseeable future. To mark the occasion The Green Blue will be celebrating its fifth birthday on Monday 13th September at the show and visit the RYA stand (E037) at any time during the week to see some of their many successes and important milestones. The Green Blue is offering some practical advice for businesses at a free Breakfast Briefing on Tuesday 14 September, from 8.45 to 9.45am in the Winchester Room, Holiday Inn, Hosted by Dan Reading, The Green Blue’s Sustainable Facilities Officer, the briefing will help businesses to make sense of a range of environmental opportunities and legislation.

A very Italian Australian In the drink By Paul Antrobus

WINE prices have risen and the under £5 a bottle bargain has more or less disappeared. That means £6.59 a bottle looks like a good buy now and the Yellow Tail selection from Australia is one such range. The winery is owned and run by the Caselli family at Yanda, New South Wales, with their own production since 1969. They have built a strong export business and it is widely available in UK supermarkets. The philosophy for Yellow Tail, or ‘[yellow tail]’ as they like to call it, is to be a great wine for everyone to enjoy. It is fresh, approachable, flavoursome and best drunk at ‘backyard’ temperature, so good for on-board stocks, which we successfully verified on a recent River Thames trip. It is not designed for cellaring but for drinking young. The Merlot is fruity with good flavour but not

heavy. It’s an easy drinker as well as good with the burgers and salad on the boat. The Shiraz has more spicy notes raspberries more than plums. Both are very Italian light rather than the more typical earthy Australian. And the reason is the family heritage. The Caselli family emigrated to Australia in the 1950s with three generations of Sicilian grape-growing and wine-making behind them. After first growing grapes for others, they started making their own wine in 1969, concentrating on the export business, but the wine is now well known and respected in the home Australian market too. There is also a very respectable Chardonnay white at the same price. All nice drinkers for yotties – all with screw tops of course.

SOUTHAMPTON Boat Show organisers tell me there are no drinks exhibitors! There will be the Black & White bar where the Guinness stand used to be and this can still be a convenient meeting point. It also features draught Guinness along with other drinks, but apparently this is not classed as an ‘exhibitor’ any more, just a bar. On the way to or from the show are some very good Hall & Woodhouse pubs, where a decent pint of real ale and good food will be found. Hall & Woodhouse is a family concern and specialises in proper country pubs, so they are not on the main roads. They own and operate some, but others are tenanted and dubbed ‘Badger Pubs’ where you can expect a friendly landlord’s welcome. One such well worth a detour is the Chestnut Horse in the village of Easton, near Winchester, just a mile or so to the east of the M3 route to London off junction 9 nearest. The main beers are Tanglefoot and Badger, both excellent real ales, and the added attractions are great food, lovely garden and real village pub atmosphere. For in-car GPS the postcode is SO21 1EG or just follow the signs from the motorway.

BOOKS IN BRIEF Just Sea & Sky

Left For Dead

England to New Zealand the Hard Way

The 1979 Fastnet Race - One Man’s Epic Story of Survival

Adlard Coles Nautical • £8.99

Nick Ward with Sinead O’Brien • Adlard Coles Nautical • £8.99

IMAGINE setting sail for the other side of the world, with one companion by your side and just the sea and sky as your guide Ben Pester’s enchanting account of his epic voyage from Plymouth to New Zealand in 1953 provides a fascinating glimpse into the bygone age of traditional seamanship. Ben and his crew, Peter Fox, set off with no on board radio, GPS, electronics, or even cabin lights, lifejackets or life raft. Instead, they embarked on their 14,000-mile voyage aboard the 39 foot gaff yawl Tern II relying solely on hand steering, cranking the engine by hand and navigating with sextant, oil lamps and torches. Ben and Peter stumbled across drunken harbourmasters, encountered the mafia, witnessed the legacy of slavery and experienced lost civilisations in the Pacific. This delightfully personal and very engaging account is a true adventure story, told in captivating detail and enriched with colour photographs and route maps of the voyage.

COMPLETING the 2009 Fastnet Race was the realisation of a lifetime ambition for Nick Ward. The Race also represented some very personal unfinished business. In 1979 Nick Ward was the last survivor of the Fastnet Race to be plucked from the sea following one of the deadliest storms in modern sailing history. By the time the storm had passed, it had mercilessly taken the lives of 15 sailors. Nick Ward had very nearly been the sixteenth. In this new edition of Left for Dead, Nick gives a very moving account of what it was like to undertake the race for the second time, 30 years on, with all the emotional and physical hardships that it entailed. Nick has been on a personal odyssey since Left for Dead was first published in June 2007. “With the publication of this new edition comes conclusion for me’ says Nick. ‘The fulfilment of a childhood dream, the closure of a loop, proving to myself

that with support, preparation and single minded ambition anything is possible, but most importantly on the 30th anniversary of a savage race I am able personally to pay my respects to those who were lost.”

About Left for Dead

Left for dead by his crewmates in the middle of a horrific storm, Nick Ward somehow managed to live to tell his tale. Left for Dead is Nick’s moving and inspirational account of his survival against the odds and the accomplishment of a dream. Nick Ward was born in Hamble, and was taught to sail at the age of four. He has retained his love of sailing throughout his life. He worked in the marine trade for most of his career and delivered and raced yachts of all kinds. Nick still lives in Hamble today, with his wife Christine and two children. Sinead O’Brien is an award-winning documentary maker and dramatist. She lives in Dublin with her daughter Eve.

ALL AT SEA | SEPTEMBER 2010 | news@allatsea.co.uk

NEWS IN BRIEF Escaping Scapa AT 5.07pm on 6 September, Stromness lifeboat was asked to go to the aid of a local yacht that was suffering machinery failure in the Houton area of Scapa Flow. The all-weather lifeboat was launched at 17.13pm and headed to the casualty. Conditions were quite difficult with a strong South Easterly force 6 wind gusting up to force 7. The volunteer crew secured a tow line and the yacht was towed into Stromness Harbour and she proceeded to Stromness Marina under her own power.

Cat and dog IN the first of two call-outs for Swanage lifeboat Portland Coastguard asked the all-weather lifeboat to help a catamaran that had developed engine trouble in a choppy sea and increasing easterly wind. The 32-foot vessel was towed towards Poole harbour where the tow was passed to another allweather lifeboat, which happened to be on passage from Tenby to Poole. As the Swanage boat was returning past Studland a request came via the Coastguard to help retrieve a dog that had run over the cliffs. The lifeboat’s inflatable was launched with two crew. They pulled the injured dog, Sandy, aboard to be reunited with hers owners at South Beach.

Meet the RNLI at the show FROM lifeboats and sea safety advice to children’s activities and lifesaving shopping – there is something to interest everyone on the RNLI’s stands and marina berths at the Southampton Boat Show. Volunteer lifeboat crew members are on hand to show visitors around an all-weather Trent class lifeboat on berth M527 and visitors can see a D class inshore lifeboat up close on stand B009. In 2009 RNLI lifeboats launched more than 9,000 times and the crew at the boat show will be able to answer questions about their training and the equipment they need to save lives at sea. RNLI lifeguards are also be at the show to talk about their inshore rescue boat on berth M528 and offer beach safety advice to those planning to catch the last of the summer’s sun at the beach. RNLI lifeguards, who patrol more than150 of the busiest beaches in England and Wales, responded to 13,591 incidents and helped 15,957 people last year. Visitors can get involved in a dramatic rescue on board the RNLI’s simulator and children can see what it is like to stand in the yellow wellies of a lifeboat crew member and don RNLI crew kit, all on stand A011. Anyone planning to put on their own foul weather gear and spend
