FDBULLETIN; NR 157, DECEMBER 2011

president’s letter Dear friends, I thank you very much, again, for your involvement in supporting and promoting our Class, all over the World. Since the last FD Bulletin has been published, please I update the life and the news of our Class till now. The number of competitors, both the new boats and second hand boat market, as well as confirm the success of the Euro Cup and Dawes Cup events, the Worlds in New Zealand at the beginning of the 2008 (44 teams) , followed by the World Championship in Medemblik on August 2009, with almost 100 FD on the starting line, confirms the continuing interest in our Class. On July 2010, the FD Class travelled to Romania for he World Championship 2010. Mihai Butucaru, the Costanta Sailing Club and the Romanian Sailing Federation worked hardly to organise the Championship, as best ; their warm hospitality and the event very well organized both in the water and ashore, unfortunately missed several teams,

coming from some European Countries and Overseas. We have been glad to see, again, the FD Russian fleet, came to Costanta with four boats; this is a success for the Russian FD teams and Secretary, which are working to increase the Class in Russia, where already started a National activity in Moscow and St, Petersburgh. My best congratulations and thanks to Mihai Butucaru, to all the Sailing Clubs hosting FD events, recurrent every year, and all the people involved in the organisation of the FD competitions.

Finally, I thank all of you to contribute every day to the prestige and the diffusion of FD all over the World , obtained both through the enthusiasm of each team and by the synergy and continuous team-work among all of us . The Class history show that "going on to sail together ....our FD Class is growing-up" . I wish all of you a wonderful sailing season 2012 and a good work for the future of the IFDCO !!

Finally, I thank all of you for your attendance to the FD Worlds 2011 in Malcesine, on last July. It was wonderful to meet such a great fleet and I think that 134 FD coming from 21 Countries and 4 Continent represents a great success for our Class. The kind hospitality of the Fraglia Vela Malcesine and the warm atmosphere among the sailors delighted the Championship.

Alberto

Cheers,

Editors word, So every now and then things are not going the way they should have been. Because of your busy job, family or ...... You end up being a dog chasing it’s own tail. And you are not finishing what you should have done. Sorry guys, we let you down editing the Bulletin. We quit and ..... No we didn’t quit we just needed that extra helping hand. Now, we could finish the job. Way to late, we know, but still it’s done. After saying that we’ve done it the team end’s their editing job here and right now. We complaint a lot to Alberto and his team. But somehow the message didn’t get through.

To edit IFDCO Bulletin 158 you need a lot of helping brains/hands. It seems the Flying Dutchman is short of these kinda men/women. So we hope for the best that our V-P communication gets a lot of mail with people who are willing to volunteer. And join the Bulletin editing team. (redactie@sailfd.com) So thanks to all the people who seeded us with stories, photograph’s and so on. In brought day-light (where did we copy that one?) here is: IFDCO-Bulletin 157.

Now it looks like it finally has. By appointing a V-P communications. We salute you, Let’s not get to excited by this upCasper, Louk, Sjors and front. (the extra hands) Ronald.

eurocup 2011 Euro Cup, Altea Spain 3-5 Februari 12 teams appeared at Altea. 3 Dutch-, 3 German-teams. completed by 6 Spanish ones. Weather forecast was warm and sunny but no wind. So for the teams who made the trip it was hoping for the best. Thursday the wind was thin and made the finish outcome unpredictable. But Ginez made it clear at the first race that he sailed to win this event. A major shift in

the 2nd race put Ginez back to 2nd spot. Friday beautiful weather and just a little wind. There was a race attempt, but after a 30dgr shift it was cancelled. The wind dropping to zero. We all got towed back home. On Friday the prediction for Saturday where no good. It seemed that the wind left Altea and Spain. Though the sunny weather still made it a good place to hang out.

On Saturday morning it looked like the Spanish Peter Timoveev (weatherchannel man in the Netherlands) was spot on with his prediction. But at 13.30 a race started. After a short race there was a second race. Final result: 1 GER 88-Kai Schaefers/ Alexander Gary 2 ESP 81 Francisco Martinez/ Vicente Guiijarro 3 GER 113-Killian Koenig/ Johannes Brack.

ALTEA, the question is what do FD-sailors do if they don’t sail. Look for the differences between them. AHO 3 Henry Koning/ Rob Taal NSR NED26 leads the pack

Euro Cup, North Sea Regatta Scheveningen 10-13 June 18 FD’s attended. 2 British-, 1 semi-Dutch- and 15 Dutch teams showed up. Friday just enough wind to fight the current. 2 races sailed, both won by NED26. Saturday wind up to 35+ knots and thunderstorms first race cancelled after almost completing the course. Afterwards we sailed 3 races. Race 1 won by NED32, race 2 by AHO3, race 3 by NED26. Sunday stabile 15 knots wind. Perfect racing against the south-west current.

!

The current was a real ballbreaker that day. 3 races sailed won, again like the day before, by 3 different teams. 1st race NED25, 2nd race NED26, 3rd race NED32. With the discards, in count, it was very close between NED26, NED32 and NED25. In the evening Hollands rock bitch Anouk showed what she’s got. That’s a lot we admit. The last day would by eminent for claiming the victory. AHO3, NED15 and GBR389 lead the pack behind the 1st three. Monday strong wind, beautiful waves

and new tide, 2 races. After a close 1st race won by NED26. Followed by the NED32 and NED25. The NED32 won the last race after an unexpected error in the last race by the NED26. But they already secured there win. So it didn’t hurt them. Final result: 1 NED 26- Enno Kramer/Ard Geelkerken 2 NED 32- Bas-/Marc van der Pol 3 NED 25-Harold Wijgers/Niels Kamphuis

eurocup 2011 Euro Cup, Kiel Germany 23-26 June 22 attendants. HUN70, AUT368, NED18 and NED19 the only foreign teams. 18 Germans and the rest off the fleet probably already gone southbound. There was a serious discussion with the racing committee to keep the FD on the list for 2012. The argument that the reason was caused by the Worlds scheduled so close after sounded reasonable. So lesson learned schedule the Championships in time. So planning for sailors is more easy.

Kiel, need we say more. Perfect surroundings. Good après sailing. And a brilliant course. Though it’s just an ordinary triangle, the reach from the upwind mark to the 2nd buoy is fantastic. If you don’t get your course, you’ve to let go of your spinnaker to get to the 2nd mark. Kiel stormy weather or no wind at all. Fortunately this week was the stormy type. Only Sunday the wind was just up to 5 knots. So excellent conditions on the first 3 days.

Euro Cup, Achensee 12-15 August 22 flying dutchmen (FD) appeared themselves from Friday to Sunday for the Austrian championship with the SCTWV oh lake, which ranked in this year again among the Euro Cup of the international FD-class. The environment, safe wind conditions and the master program had lured crews out completely Austria, Germany, The

Netherlands and Italy to the lake. With good thermal wind conditions the trip line could align 3 races with north wind on Friday. With good starts and outstanding boat speed the favorites Christian Aichholzer/ Philipp Zingerle with 2 victories and a second place.

IFDCO Bulletin HELP US OUT The IFDCO-Bulletin needs new editors, people involved, copywriters. So to everyone who wants to help out, mail your interest and do it today.

(type out) event stories, technical stories, Q & A - things, doing interviews etc.etc. So get involved today. Or it could, again, take a while for the next Bulletin release.

From my point of view it’s it’s Join the team, mail to: getting people to interact and get stories, photograph’s and so redactie@sailfd.com on.So anyone who is sailing frequently could do an excellent Ronald Stalman job and pass the word and get others involved and let them tell

in need of extra hands

Q3 MEMORY TEST, HOW SMART ARE YOU REALLY Answer to Q2; Did you say: ‘By using the tiller?’. That’s right. But don’t forget you where flying the spinnaker sheet. So you should have said; ‘Get out of the trapeze. Pull in the spinnaker. Change position with your helmsman and sail the boat’. Q3; Alberto, is hosting the competitors hearing. Every one is there .... Except for one? Who does not attend?

We are aware of the efforts, time and dedication that was needed to organize and manage such an event event, both ashore and in the Hudson River. Also, the chance to sail together with ancient vessels, navy ships, under the Statue of Liberty and with Manhattan

as the backdrop, represented a special and wonderful chance to show and advertise the FD Class ; so we are honoured and glad to have been invited . .......thank you also to the FD USA Class and to the 53 teams who attended to the event. Alberto

presidentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s notes Enumeration, All those events , with regard to numbers of teams and Countries represented, confirm the IFDCO strategy to develop the Class, increase the fleets in each Country, and especially promote the travel of teams to attend to races abroad and overseas.

Structure Change

Discussed is the matter of how the Class will become a more sensitive structure in the nearby future.

2012 The 2012 sailing season will offer us a rich set of events : the FD International activity will start with the European Championship that will be held to Altea in Spain, on Easter . At the Europeans, we are organising the celebration of the IFDCO 60th Anniversary ; So, that event will represent a very

!

To support this strategy, the most important issue is to organize and support the transport of boats. Both in 2008 and 2009, 2010 and 2011, IFDCO gave a grant of 1.200 â&#x201A;Ź for each container shipped overseas. To try to enhance this process, requires efforts, time and a financial support . Our strategy is to continue to give grants for boat transport overseas and

grants to young sailors . Both can be increased by a sponsorship agreement between specific brands and IFDCO. With regard to the future events, we have just finished the World Championship 2011 and while the sailing activity is going on, we are already looking forward to organise the events 2012, in details.

The IFDCO members will see that their influence and input increase. The AGCM in Malcesine dedicated a long discussion to that topic and it was agreed to

create a Committee for such a purpose: Tom Greten has been elected to coordinate that Committee.

important time for our Class life . After the classic series of spring race, there will be the Vintage Yachting Games on the Lake of Como, since 7 to 15 July ; .......then, we 'll have just the time to load the containers to ship the FD to USA, where there will be the Worlds in Santa Cruz , scheduled from 22 to 30 September.

Please, find the Notice of Race of the Europeans, Vintage Yachting Games and Worlds in Santa Cruz on the web-site. Moreover, you could find every information with regard to the events in the IFDCO Website ( section "Events / Future Events / World / European Championships / Vintage Yachting Games " ).

president’s notes IFDCO G.C.

With regard to the official activities of the IFDCO General Committee, I thank you very much for your commitment in your specific activity and role; As often reported in my President’s letter and reports, I strongly believe that the success and the strategies of our Class are particularly related to the best team-work we are able to express. Moreover, the communication with the National Secretaries and the chance to involve young sailors and new blood in the management of

the Class is vital .The IFDCO structure, involving the Executive, General Committee, Commodores, Sub – Committees, National Secretaries, IFDCO Archive, Dawes and EuroCup Results, FD Bulletin editors and Website, offer a dynamic and synergic system , able to take care of every problem and matter. The IFDCO structure allows to the Commodores to be a very important link, between General Committee and National Secretaries.That strategy is very important to coordinate the calendars of different

- keelboats (eg TP52) racing Corinthian and Professional in Thought that I would let you one fleet (for race management know that the ISAF Classes Committee, which met yesterday and ethos of class reasons) should be able to continue to morning, has supported the submission 051-11 which I was award two World titles. involved in its drafting with Colin Smith (Int14). An email from Chris Atkins (Chair Events Committee) said the following: "But news from the front line is that Classes Committee voted overwhelmingly to support the submission, so thank you and Stephen for all your hard work. No seriously negative comments. Delegates had obviously read the submission so questions were on an aware and informed basis and were helpful clarifications. Slides were ready for use but not necessary.

Dear All,

Countries, in order to improve and increase the travelling process. I ‘m sure that continuous cooperation and communication among all the IFDCO Officers and Class structures should warranty long-term success , step by step. During the AGCM in Malcesine, started the process and new people have been involved in the Board. In particular, after 17 years Stephen Parry resigned as V.P. Championship and will be replaced by Jan Lechner. Jan can consult Stephen for the 2012 Worlds in Santa Cruz. This was attached to the decision as a comment for Council as it was something we had not considered and it merits due consideration - same provision for all subsidiaries - not supported - subsidiaries should have lower fleet size requirements handle as submission in another year when can be discussed on its own merits - multihull exception shouldn't be there - handle as submission in another year." The numbers are favorable for the FD's. Cheers, Stephen

Comments made included:

Stephen Parry

Dear Steve, personally and on behalf of all IFDCO, I thank you very much for your availability and congratulate for the great job, you did in several years.

!

Your engagement for IFDCO was dedicated not only to the Championships, but also to represent the IFDCO to ISAF and look to the future strategy of the Class ; so, thank you very much, again!!

As team, Steve, Jan and many others coworked now, to finalize the Notice of Race of the Europeans 2012. Stephen we will invite you at the EC2012 Altea to salute you.

Last but not least; Give your opponents a great hint/tip ... Enjoy sailing FD every minute! Now that you answered all this question with regarding to your sailing. There’s something else I want to ask you!

!

Tell us why ...

Many sailors asked me to help in the IFDCO. Since it is my job to organize fairs and exhibitions around the world, it seems natural to organize FD Championships around the world too. What does the IFDCO need to do for their members ...

In my opinion the IFDCO has to bundle all the Ideas of the fleet to organize sporting competitions and great events for all the sailors and the friends of the Flying Dutchman Class. And it has to ensure, that the FD will be a wonderful and trendy sailing class in the future. What opportunities do you see ...

The FD is an conventional construction, but it is a modern and stylish sailing class with friendly people and with good sailing competitions around the world also today. We have to show that the rest of the sailing family and especially to the young sailors. Then I’m sure, that there will be more and more young sailors, who would like to sail the Flying Dutchman.

What needs to be changed ...

The IFDCO has to give more

information to the FD Sailors, more quickly and with more transparence. Especially the internet communication should be better, because that’s the medium to talk together and to get information in time. How many boats you expect in Altea Spain at the EC ... I hope, that there will be 40 Boats or more…… How many boats you expect in Santa Cruz Worlds ... It´s a beautiful sailing area and a beautiful country too; the organizers are creating a great event. I hope that there will be many, many FD sailors joining the great sailing conditions in the States. What are you going to do to get so many boats there ... The US Class Organization and Frank Nooijen will organize the best possibilities to transport the boats to Santa Cruz. The IFDCO, the national fleets and sponsors from the US will sponsor parts of the transport. In Europe there will be the possibility to load the containers at different central places to make it easier for the sailors to get the equipment in the containers. We have seen at the NY 400 event, that loading 6 Flying Dutchmans in one Container is easy and fast. I hope, that these conditions make it easy for the sailors to go to Santa Cruz.

2012 Vintage Yachting Games

WHAT IS IT? AND WHY IT IS IMPORTANT FOR US? The Vintage Yachting Games (Vintage) are the International Post-Olympic Yachting/Sailing event for former Olympic classes. The Vintage is held every four years.

Flying 3 Dutchman Yngling 2

The idea behind the Vintage is to Organize a four yearly highend event in the calendars of all the former Olympic classes after their discontinuation of the Olympics. The 2012 Vintage Yachting Games (2012 Vintage), is the second time this post-Olympic multi-class sailing event for discontinued Olympic classes will be organized. The event will be held July 7–15, 2012, on Lake Como Italy. Following loosely the Olympic tradition, Como’s project manager Pietro Adamoli (right) received the Vintage Yachting Games Flag during the closing ceremony of the 2008 Vintage in Medemblik, The Netherlands from the mayor of Medemblik: Theo van Eijk. Anticipated participation estimates the following classes, continents, contries, yachts and sailors. Conti- Coun- Yac SaiClasses nents tries hts lors Europe 2 12 20 20 Europe 12 foot dinghy O-Jolle

Look at the list, the Flying Dutchman is really the class with the best performance! We have to be there to show, that the FD is living and the class is modern with great Sailors and a great family! Villa Monastero will used for prize giving ceremony. This villa is one of the most interesting examples of eclectic

style residence on the Lake Como. Originally built to accommodate the cistercensian monastery of Santa Maria, first quoted in a document dated 1208. Since 1963 the villa is an international cultural and scientific centre. Every country can enter 2 teams. But teams can mix up. One of the sailing crew-members must represent his country. This makes it, for example, possible for an Australian FD-sailor to lease a European boat with an European helm or crew.

The Vintage is a promotional platform to show that the class is still active in many countries. The Bid process for the 3rd edition of the Vintage Yachting Games in 2016 is announced. The announcement went to the Organizations of Vintage Yachting Classes, National Authorities, Sailing Press, several International orientated yacht clubs and our many friends of the Vintage Yachting Games. The deadline for submitting the proposals by the candidate host yacht clubs is December 31st , 2011! After that the voting will take place before March 1st, 2012 and the formal announcement of the 2016 site will take place during the Vintage Yachting Games 2012 at Lake Como. At this moment interest for bidding for the event is shown by: Germany (Chiemsee); Romania; Sweden; United Kingdom (Weymouth and Portland National Sailing Academy). So I would like to invite all FD Sailors from all over the World to attend (and team up with a European FD-friend) at the 2012 Vintage at Lake Como/ Italy! Jan Lechler V-P Championships IFDCO

IFDCO communication V-P communications

The AGCM went on with a discussion with regard to the IFDCO communication, especially concerning the IFDCO Website and the FD Bulletin. With regard to the "communication and promotional tools FD Bulletin, IFDCO website & Forum , I congratulate Sjors, Casper and Louk for their engagement to develop the “Forum” last year. The Forum represents a quick way to communicate, compare notes and informations among FD members and new sailors. It is an excellent interactive tool to allow a discussion about every topic. Nevertheless, Website and Forum represent two complementary reality and structures, both fundamentals but difference to show and promote the Class.

Those two Internet instruments have to live together, integrate reciprocally and work in parallel and they need to be updated simultaneously, but preserving their specific identity. To rationalise their development and updating, the team-work between the FD Bulletin Editors, Forum and Website is fundamental, but we also require the cooperation of Officers, National Secretaries and sailors, to collect and send us informations, news and photos to update and maintain the IFDCO archive in every section of the website. With such team-work I 'm aware that we can ensure the best way and result to inform the FD members and sailors, and promote the Class, in real time.

"The Class Book", updated and renewed by Stephen in a new format, has been delivered to the FD sailors during the Worlds. It will be updated year by year and you could purchase it on the website. Finally, it will be show and sell during the races. Thank you Stephen for your engagement and for the beautiful result !!Moreover, looking to the importance of the communication and promotion of the Class, the AGCM in Malcesine decided to create the new role of V.P. Communications. Ronald Stalman will be in charge of that role, since now; thank you very much Ronald for your availability.

More tips and tricks on handling the boat Now that you answered all this question with regarding to your sailing.

!

There’s something else I want to ask you! You are in the board as VPcommunications, since Malcesine. Tell us why ...

The IFDCO and NFDO facilitate me so I can sail FD-events. This is my way to do something for the class in return. A website is the most easy and fast way to communicate with the outside and within the class to promote the boat and events. The common IFDCO website is not like that and is far from upto-date. When they asked me if I want to be involved I said ‘yes’. How are you gonna do that ...

Look up what kind of developments there are in the webcommunities and devices. By making an inventory of the history and the archives. Think about what attracts people to look at a website. So we/I don’t start processing, before we/I know what there’s to know. What’s your inventory so far ...

I see not a lot of new people who ask or / stand up to do something for the IFDCO. That makes me wonder if the IFDCO is needed and is there for a true reason.

It’s over 100 days now ...

I’ve seen a lot in these days. Communication between board members is hard and mostly nonverbal. So there’s easily something burning without a fire. Since I’ve no track-record I should be not the one to judge. My job now is to make sure that a Bulletin is issued after 2 years. Then the web-site is on the agenda (see page 45). Promotional activities will automatically come with it and in that process. My role will be clearer in time. What needs to be changed ...

(according to my opinion) The IFDCO should be as lean and mean as possible with as few people in it as needed. It’s should exist like an umbrella for the national CO’s and facilitate and inform them in the most direct and correct way what is happening in the ISAF and sailing world. Transparency is also a keyfactor, so members know that’s something is happening. Also new (and younger) people should be seated on the board so the class will be served in everyone’s interest and at it’s best into the future.

IFDCO archive & measurement The IFDCO Archive contains the Measurement Certificates, Sail Numbers, etc. and it is fundamental to maintain the history of the Class and to support the Measurement staff in their work. This very important job, done for several years by Clè , is now possible with the engagement of Zsofia, who has been able to update and computerised all the procedures.Moreover, she has been able to reorganise and update some National Archives, co-working with the National Secretaries: dear Zsofia, I thank you very much for your fundamental role to collect and main-

tain the historical memories of our Class!! With regard to the Technical matters, I thank and congratulate Peter Hinrichsen, John Best, Paul Hemker and all their Technical staff , for their professional approach and involvement to improve the Measurement procedures to allow to check more than 100 boats in two days, both in Medemblik and Malcesine. I â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;m very satisfy and glad because they always perfectly update the Class Rules according to the progressive development of boats, riggings and sails, looking ahead to the future

.Moreover, the efficiency, the quality control and the computerised data base showed in every Championship, testify the success of the technical strategy adopted by IFDCO to update the Rules and manage the Measurements, in order to ensure every time high quality control, safety and equity. The goals of that strategy and technical procedures are testified also by the success of John Best, as Chief Measurer of all the five Classes, represented in the last Vintage Yachting Games 2008.

event proposals Peter Doran, as secretary got a letter from the NFDO where they asked us to announce events at least 13 months up-front. As this matter was discussed IFDCO asked several classmembers to come up with future Worlds - and European Championships proposals. Caribbean Worlds For a long time the only proposal was the Bonaire isle. Proposed by Rob Taal (AHO3). Other proposals At Malcesine more members gave proposals for Worlds Event to the IFDCO, to go to: - Hungary, Lake Balaton

!

- UK, Largs - Australia, Sydney. IFDCO event policy The IFDCO is in favour of organising the events in a country where further promotion is needed. And the class could be growing in numbers. Event selection At the AGCM the events, for 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015, were discussed and selected. (see 7.3 in the AGCM-minutes) Thanks We thank all the people for the proposals made. For the once chosen they can start with their preparations.

Special thanks we want to make to Rob Taal. When asked he went straight ahead to get things going for Worlds in the Caribbean area. As other proposals came through, they were favoured. Rob your proposal is still at the table. So ......

DR. GIZMO The poor get poorer and the rich get richer: Thoughts on bad and good air Dr. Gizmo’s Physics Chat Corner Suppose you and your mate decide to go for a bike ride. Your mate is the strong sporting type and you are lazy and suffering from a hangover. You know what to do: you let your mate do the headwork while you stay safely tucked in behind him in his slipstream. Your companion is pumping hard against the ever present headwind and you are pedaling along leisurely, shielded from the opposing gale. Now, you may ask, is there an opposite effect: does the front man need to push even harder when he

has a slip-streamer behind him than when he would be cycling alone? Is the ‘suction’ that helps the second holding back the first? It turns out that the answer is no. The FD bulletin is not a cycling periodical so let’s turn to a similar situation with two sailboats. You are sailing close hauled in boat B shown in picture 1 below. One of your competitors (boat A) has just had the bad taste to tack right in front of you and is now on the same tack. You are less than pleased because, as we all know, you are suffering from an unwanted dose of ‘bad’ air emanating from A’s sails. So quite contrary to the bicycle story the back marker suffers; his pointing ability is seriously compromised by the disturbed air thrown at him by his com-

petitor in front. Now we can ask the same question: does boat A actually benefit from the presence of B behind him? Your guess is probably going to be: no way; the air that A is sailing in comes to him from the front and in no way can there be a beneficial effect from the fact that this air, once released, is captured by the sails of a second boat. You may be surprised to find that your guess is wrong: A is actually able to point higher in the case in which a second boat is sailing in his ‘dirt’ than in the absence of this boat. There is such a thing as ‘good’ air projected out in front of a boat. So the poor get poorer but the rich also get richer. Thus, sailing is an even more undemocratic sport than cycling.

Fig 1. Two boats sailing upwind. The complicated airflow, deflected by the sails of the boats, can be thought of as the sum of the straight wind flow pattern present in the absence of the boats (b), and circulating flow patterns associated with each of the two boats (c). The blue and red circulation patterns are due to boats A and B respectively.

!

PAGE 33


FDBULLETIN; NR 157, DECEMBER 2011

DR. GIZMO So why is there such a back action? Let’s go back to the aerodynamic basics. Firstly, the wind that is released from the sails of boat A is riddled with turbulence. This is bad for B. Its sails prefer a smooth flow for optimal performance. There is no back action associated with this effect and I will not discuss it further. However, there is a second effect that would even occur if the flow past the sails of A were per-

fectly smooth: as you can see from Fig. 1a, the air is deflected by A’s sails, which causes it to impinge on the sails of B at a less advantageous angle. We all know, and fear, this effect: B’s pointing ability suffers. The aerodynamic reason for the backwash leading to this effect is the circulation set up by the sails of A. As shown in Fig. 1 b and c the flow around the sails can be decomposed into an ambient component that is just

the flow field that would be present in the absence of the boats, and a flow field that rotates around the sails in the direction indicated. The vectorsum of these two fields is the real flow field shown (a bit schematically) in Fig. 1a. Please consult my earlier article on centerboards in one of the previous editions of the FD Bulletin if you want to understand why this circulation happens.

Fig. 2 If the boat shown is trailing another boat it feels its circulation flow impinging from the leeward side (red curved arrow). As a consequence the shown boat points less high. Alternatively, if the boat is ahead of a competing yacht it feels the circulation pattern shown by the green curved arrow and thus points higher.

Fig. 3 Good and bad regions. If you are sailing in the region marked ‘good’ relative to the boat shown, you benefit. In the bad region you suffer. If you are located in the neutral areas, you and your competitor are roughly at par.

!

PAGE 34


FDBULLETIN; NR 157, DECEMBER 2011

DR. GIZMO To summarize, let’s look at fig.3. This diagram shows a single boat sailing upwind. Three regions are indicated: from the perspective of a second boat (not shown) we can

distinguish three regions. Region I, where you don’t want to be; if you maneuver your boat into this region you will get the bad air of the boat shown. Region II is neutral territory and

region III is the good air region. If you sail there you will benefit and the drawn boat will feel your dirty air.

Fig.4 Situation at the start: The green boat points higher and the red boat points lower than the pack.

To end, we consider an effect that you have always suspected to be there but were unwilling to accept as being true. In Fig.4 we see a pack of boats on starboard tack just after the starting gun has fired. All boats have just had a reasonable start, but one boat’s start was just impeccable. This

boat (A) has inched ahead slightly. A second boat (C) is a touch too slow hauling in the sheets and had dropped behind a bit. Now look at the circulation pattern set up by the entire pack: It gives a nasty dose of bad air near the poor guys aboard C and this boat will quickly slump even further be-

hind. A on the other hand will feel the good air from the entire pack and will effortlessly pull away even further. You knew it: a good start is more than half the job in competitive sailing. Now you understand why.

DR. Gizmo maybe you should have told this story earlier

Fragelia Della Vela Di Malcesine

Having been to Dervio in 2005 I was really looking forward to going to Malcesine with the fabulous sailing conditions of Lake Garda and obviously from the entry of 130 FDs this is a favorite place for the sailors to come and enjoy themselves. I was fortunate to get a lift from the Starnberger See to Malcesine with Ioannis Remoundos who was sailing GRE 7. We had a good trip through Innsbruck but the magnificent scenery and vineyards started after we passed Roverito and went through the mountains. The decent into Torbole was spectacular and one got an appreciation of why Lake Garda is one of the premium sailing venues in the world as we

drove along the lakefront to Malcesine. Regatta Inspection The view from the club when we arrived at the Fragelia Della Vela Di Malcesine a Melges 24 regatta was just concluding so there were all sorts of activity with FDs being unloaded from containers and Melges 24s packing up. John Best had been very busy organizing the regatta inspection with Gerard who was extremely helpful in providing the measurers with all they needed. With 130 boats to inspect in 3 days the initial intention was to have two lines but this proved to be impractical as the inspection was in the open along the

gravel path in front of the club. Fortunately John had as usual arranged for an excellent measurement team of Zsophia for certification, Catherine for inspection records, Heidi for initial inspection, Albert and Robin for masts and rudders etc., Paul with help from Domenico for weighing, Dawn, Susan doing a magnificent job of measuring the sails. Fortunately, except for one short period, the weather was beautiful sunshine and the inspection went on efficiently. The team even managed to complete a fundamental template measurement of a Bogumil hull in the evening!

This was followed by some recollections of his FD days by Johnathan McKee, the 1984 Gold medalist who was there for the Melges 24 which is just one of his present sailing classes. Then the many different kinds of food were served and a good time was had by all getting reacquainted with all ones old FD friends. Sailing Instructions The very large entry had not been anticipated so the initial sailing instructions had all competitors starting together, and also sailing courses which were

not according to the FD Championship requirements. It was however quickly agreed that the fleet should be split and that the courses should include reaching legs. The race officers, Alberti Marco and Georgio Battinelli graciously agreed to let Peter Doran, Ronald Stalman and me, acting in the capacity of VP Considering that this system was implemented after many sailors had already registered and to make life simple while ensuring that every entrant sailed against every other entrant at least twice in the qualifying series, the fleet was divided into four groups, red, green, blue and yellow. After 6 races the last 3 races the fleet was split in Gold and Silver.

WORLDS 2011 REPORT

Conditions

by Peter Hinrichsen

The wind on Lake Garda blows from the North in the morning then dies at about 11 am and comes back from the South at around 2 pm. This means that you either have very early starts or, as was the case for the qualifying series a nice relaxed beginning to the day with ample time to launch before a 2

pm start. We were fortunate to have great conditions for racing on the first three days and the qualifying series went off very well. The 7courses were laid along the lake with the gybe mark set close to the club so the spectators got a good view of the racing. This however meant that the course was behind the

small headland on which Malcesine is built and so there was generally a wind bend which favored the left side of the course. The starting lines were therefore crowded at the pin end as everyone wanted to go left. I hate to think what would have happened if there had been one start on a line twice as long.

100+ Trophy Some time ago this was the 75+ Trophy and if this is to be a competition while the Danes continue to sail FD perhaps it should have remained at 75+! The nearest 100+ team to the Bojsen Mollers was Ian McCrossin and James Cook at 15th place. It will be some years before HUN 70 or NED 26 reach 100+.

The age distributions of the skippers, crews and the combined ages are shown below. The youngest Skipper was Sevila Marco (ESP 91), the youngest crew was Nigel Gorbold (GBR 367) and the youngest combination was Philipp Backes and Dominic Kiefer (GER 2098) who were also sailing the oldest boat. The oldest skipper was

Wolfgang Dietrich (GER 224), the oldest crew was Paul Hemker, our joint chief measurer (GBR 382) who was sailing with our class secretary Peter Doran, and the oldest combination was Henry Koning and Rob Taal (AHO 1) who came second in the Silver fleet.

Ladies Cup There were five lady helmspersons and one all lady crew in the championships. The winner of the “Ladies Cup” was Silvia Aichholzer, with Christoph Zingerle crewing (AUT 39) a 24 year old boat to a final position of 39, i.e. in the top third of the fleet. The runner up was Elisa

Koenig with Lars Dehne crewing (GER 133). They had a good lead coming out of the Qualifying series but, together with some top boats, had problems in the Final series to end up 56th. Tanja Heijink and Nettie Van der Valk (NED 33), our all lady crew ended up 62nd, so above the half way mark of the

fleet, congratulations. Although there were no really high wind days, these championships had very difficult and testing conditions and the high placing of these lady sailors’ attests to their skills and to the fact that the modern FD can be sailed competitively by the ladies.

WORLDS 2011 REPORT World Championships The fight for the title involved the usual competitors, all past champions, the Hungarians Majthenyi and Andreas Domokos, the Danes Jorgen and Jacob Bojsen-Moller, and Enno Kramer with Ard Geelkerken from the Netherlands. At the end of the 6 qualifying races the Hungarians had a lead of 2 points over the Dutch who were 2 points ahead of the Danes so the championship was still wide open. The first race of the final series was postponed a day and even when sailed the conditions were fluky, resulting in all three leaders having their drop race, so no change. On the final day the first race was abandoned and re sailed in the afternoon with the Danes winning, the Hungarians third and the Danes sixth which was there second drop race. Going into the final race the Hungarians were leading the Danes by just one point, with the Dutch only three points back so this was to be the showdown. The Danes won the final race with the Dutch in 16th and the Hungarians having their worst race at 34th. So

by Peter Hinrichsen

it was looking good for the Danes, but both the other teams used this as there second drop race and then the Hungarians won the championships by two points with the Dutch a further two point back in third place, that is exactly where they were at the end of the qualifying series. All three had their drop races in the final series but the Danes had a fifth and a sixth that they dropped so won the Mexican hat (no drop races) by a big margin, namely 16 points from the Dutch.

It is interesting to note that there were seven nations in the top ten and that a 27 year old hull was sixth. It is understandable that at a World Champion-

ships that there are a large number of new boats but it is interesting to see the large number of boats which are between 20 and 26 years old. These boats are presumably the last generation of Olympic Flying Dutchmen and indicate the longevity of the hulls. Few modern high performance racing dinghies remain competitive for this length of time. To summarize this was a fantastic championship and demonstrates that the Flying Dutchman class is thriving and providing top class racing in large International fleets. Italy with its warm climate, good winds, fabulous food and hospitality has always attracted FD sailors, and this regatta certainly lived up to this reputation. We would like to thank the race officers, the Jury and the club for making our sailing and social life so enjoyable. We will recommend the Fragelia Della Vela Di Malcesine to all our sailing friends and hope to return someday soon.

MEMORY TEST, HOW SMART ARE YOU REALLY Answer to Q4; Just sail the course correctly and keep your gear in one piece than you win the race! Why? Have you not been listening? All the others are attending the competitors hearing. You are the only one out there sailing the race! According to Anderson Consulting Worldwide, approx 90% of the Proâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s they tested got all questions wrong, but many several preschoolers got several correct answers. Anderson Consulting says that this conclusively proves the theory that most professionals do not have the brains of a four-year-old. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s OK to frustrate your smart friends by asking/sending them these questions. Afterwards you tell them like I tell you that it should make you feel good.

planatech; new name in fd - constructing After we have done winning boats such as TP 52 , GP 42...

...now we are ready to build your own Flying Dutchman.

      



Interview with PLANATECH website: www.planatech.eu part one / parte uno

Italian designed FD-hull Tell us about Planatech ... (Dicaci circa Planatech ...)

Well, since my architecture degree I began to work in the marine industry as a consultant in the Latini Marine technical office and at the same time I started my company and my brand including my logo. Meanwhile, together with my brother Marco, I started the design and the construction of the first FD â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ask Her Outâ&#x20AC;? (see bulletin number 153). From that moment on, I have increased my knowledge by taking part in the construction of boats such as TP52 and GP42, these boats, made with Pre-Preg technologies, have sailed the most famous races in the yachting world. After the experience in the Latini Marine yard, I was the project manager for a GP42 and late I was responsible for the technical assistance in Italy of composite materials and systems in a company that is leader in the Marine Market.

!

Day after day, thanks to all the good teachers I had, I have become increasingly specialised in the advanced composites design and manufacturing. In the last three years I had been involved also in the wind energy and military markets. Now, after three years far away from boat construction I miss that kind of work and so one year ago I started to design a completely new FD and now Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m answering to your question, Ronald, because Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m near the start of the construction of this exiting new boat. Unbelievable!! Tell us about Planatech products ...

I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t say that Plana Tech have any kind of products until now, because I have always worked on the design, the management and the manufacturing supervision of composite parts for other companies. Since I started doing this job my dream has always been to realise my own projects. The path has been tough but I think that now the dream can come true: learning different things, to manage the complexity of all the parts and to be able to satisfy all the different requirements of a boat is

really a difficult task and now I feel confident to deal with this kind of challenges. Planatech is about to go constructing FDâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ...

Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a crucial question Ronald! After my answer I will take a course whit no way backâ&#x20AC;Ś Yes, the answer is yes, more then one year ago I had started to design a completely new FD. I had drawn 8 different versions before the final one. During the design stage the hardest thing was to achieve the highest level in all areas keeping costs under control.

planatech; interview part 1 With Bogumil, Mader and other boats no track record and only 610 new boats sold every year it doesn’t look profitable. So why start building FD’s ...

The whole Flying Dutchman class is alive after sixty years thanks also to all the boat builders that in the past made and still make the boats. I’m an FD sailor and I’m always enthusiast when I look to every kind of boats: Alpa, Bianchi&Cecchi, Bob Hoare, Lindsay, Mader, Bogumil…and all the others I forgot. All the builders along whit sailors has renewed and increased our boats making them always the best and more advanced dinghy in the world. Looking at the past I can see some different stages regarding materials and construction technology: plywood then VTR and wooden deck…then Kevlar hull and wooden deck…and so on. At the same time they developed the construction technology and they improved also the deck hardware, everything it was increased well and quickly. After 1992 with the end of the Olympic games for the FD I think that this fast development of the boats has slowed down, always increasing but slowly. Several times the project of Mr. Uus Van Essen proved to be practically eternal, all those who want something more from him always receive great gifts!! I strongly believe that now is time to ask him another effort. My idea is to take the building technology of boat such as TP52, AC, Volvo70 and condense it in our beloved boat to let it go a little bit faster…to let it be again strongly the queen of dinghies. Well the reason for which I decided to make a completely

!

new FD does not depend on a commercial reason, but by the joy of seeing a dream come true, by the joy of seeing what a new FD built with the latest technology and the best materials can perform on the water…what the FD can be without any kind of compromise. Will you just be building the hulls or the whole carbon package (centre board, rudder, mast, boom) ...

We will make everything except masts, although we want to produce also the mast but in a second step. Your section planning is totally computer designed/supported ...

Of course it is. When you need to achieve a high level of integration between the different things that in a boat lives together like the shape of the cockpit and the deck, the deck hardware and all the structure you need a place in which everything could be simulated and tested. This was one of the crucial part of this project, a 3D drawing was created for every component and each part has been optimised and integrated with the other passing through different reiteration of this task. This boat is not the result of only one person work, difficult things such boat design and construction needs more then one and each whit his specific skills. Behind me there are several persons involved in this project. Antonio Latini, Latini Marine yard, will be the builder of the boats and during all the design stage of the boat has been at the centre of decisions about technology solutions. It is an honour for me to work again with my teacher shoulder to shoulder.

Right now I still need to control the confidential information about the other two members of the designing team. I can say that the designer of the water lines of the hull and appendages is Italian and is one of the famous yacht designer in the world with an extensive experience gained over the years designing dinghies and big boats. The last one is the structural engineer who made the structural design of the boat, verifying the stiffness and longevity of each component, he works for the biggest company in the world that is the market leader in designing structures for composite race boats. That is really a great team!!!

planatech; interview part 1 What will be different on the Planatech FD-hull ...

We have focused in the optimisation and realisation of the basic concepts of a fast race boat. We strictly believe that the FD is an overpowered boat and we want to take advantage of this power! It means that less power you loose, because of the deformation of any components, faster the boat will be. For this reason we did the choice to produce the whole boat with carbon pre-preg and use for all the secondary bondings a high strength structural adhesive. Thanks to the carbon prepreg and the sophisticated structural engineering, we can remove completely the longitudinal bow beam for example, we managed to get very light extremity. When you are able to save weight all around the boat you can choose where you want it, the goal is to take the centre of gravity of the boat as close as possible to the one of the crew. All this things increase the capacity of the boat to pass the waves with less pitching, allowing you to maintain a higher average speed. If all these things are well managed and implemented together with dedicated water

lines I think that it will be unlikely that those boats will not be faster. You will see also a completely new control box near the main traveller that is the result of a streamlining and simplification of all the running rigging. Something that will be really useful is the lifting rudder with the tiller that pass through the transom and not over the deck. There are several other small changes and new items in this boat but in my mind there is a voice that is telling me that between a boat and the man who is looking at her there is a feeling that doesn’t depend on all this things but is always like love at first sight. When do you start molding the first FD-hull ...

That is a good question. The costs of all this operation are really expensive because everything has to be done at the maximum level. To let all this things come true I have appealed to the trust and esteem in me of some of the great FD sailors here in Italy. At this moment I have 3 of the 4 boats that I need to sell already sold on paper and I’m waiting for the crucial answer of the fourth owner. If this answer will be positive after five

months the first boat will be ready to sail. Let me do my warmest thanks to Alberto, Francesco&Giovanni and Giacomo: thank you to let my dreams come true, thank you for your trust, thank you for your help in all the difficult things we did together… the only thing I can do for you in return is the fastest FD ever!!!! Who is gonna sail the first Planatech FD ...

Well, when you are dealing with so special people, what happens is that nobody cares to have the first boat. All are now focused on being able to start, to be able to make the boats as soon as possible without wanting to put themselves in front of the others. You need to know that, it’s really something special!! Thank you Ronald for this nice interview and I hope to see you soon…. Editors note ...

We will follow the whole process, so to be continued ... part 2, ... interview during the constructing process. part 3, ... interview after the first completed event/season.

ifdco on the web IFDCO web-site The web-site will change. The old web-site is outdated and not suitable to nowadays technical possibilities. Since mobile devices run websites we miss out opportunities to connect with them. So we are renewing the website. It’s the next big project of the communications group. As Google is dominating the search engine market we will use some of there utilities. To stay on top in Google lists/ topics refreshing your web-site is a necessity. You-tube video postings, twitter messages help you refresh your web-site. So we are integrating these things in the new web-site design. The Event section also is a main issue on the IFDCO web-site. We are testing a solution that will meet up to our goals of look and feel for this section.

Facebook The IFDCO has a facebook account. Account-name: IFDCO Bulletin. Please make the connection.

new web-site preview Linked In There are several accounts to somehow connect with information regarding the Flying Dutchman Class. Existing accounts: - vliegende hollander Tell us your account name and get linked. Twitter Probably you don’t like to have a Twitter account. Neither did I. But since it’s an easy to use tool

kiwi’s already on facebook

!

and is helping us with achieving other goals (like Google) I

strongly recommend all FDsailors to get an account. Name suggestions. FD- to start with Country letters as used in our sails. End your boat or personal number. So ours could be: FD-NED18. Further Twitter advantages. It’s easy to notify people. For example last minute changes to the event, change your attendance or ask a place to sleep/stay. So think about it? And take, with us, the challenge to be more digital.
