Dear FD sailors, After a long, long winter season Spring is in the air in Europe. It’s with great pleasure that we can offer you a new issue of the FD Bulletin. We are very glad with the enormous response given by you, FD sailors from all around the globe, to our new FD Bulletin Forum (www.fdbulletin.org). More than 100 sailors have already suscribed and this indicates that there was a crying need for an international FD Forum. Thank you all for your tremendous input and interesting topics like reports from NZL, changes of rules, rake, spinnakers, rudders etc. And guys: the FD certainly doesn’t need an “extreme make-over”. Be a little careful with our 57 year old baby... Our new Forum is moderated by Sjors and Casper. We owe them one for this. There will be plenty of opportunities to do so during the Worlds in Medemblik, Holland. At this moment there are more than 50 entries. It looks like this will be an extraordinary event. With 4 months ahead we may even count on more than 100 boats! Needless to say all

Dutch sailors can’t wait to wellcome all of you. Immediately after the Worlds lots of boats will be shipped to New York, where the 400th anniversary of the city will be graced by two FD events. What’s more in this issue? Reports, results, nice pictures and, not to miss, a contribution of our well known Dr. Gizmo, who did some serious thinking on the rakething. A matter that is in our minds since the FD is speeding her way in windy conditions. Very interesting stuff for the lighter crews. The editors wish to thank all sailors who gave their input to this issue, please do keep us sending reports, ideas, photos or comments to: fdbulletin@gmail.com We hope you will enjoy this Bulletin and wish you happy, safe and fast sailing!

Presidents letter bers, National Secretaries, etc. to show and improve the advantages to the sailors, especially to the young teams.

Dear friends, I thank all of you for your engagement to promote the image of the FD Class during the sailing season 2008, with your race activity. The most important events of 2008 started with the European Championship, organized in a excellent way at Rabac, by the Fly Sailing Club Opatija, with 85 competitors from 16 countries and 3 continents: compliments and many thanks to the organization. Moreover, my best congratulations and many thanks to the Napier Sailing Club, the Organizing Committee and to the FD New Zealand Class for the superb organization of the New Zealand and World Championships 2008, held during the last Christmas holiday, in which 44 teams competed from 11 countries and 3 continents. The FD sailors showed again their great passion, interest and effort to sail overseas, since 6 containers have been shipped from Australia, Europe and USA . The IFDCO, selling the HARKEN - WINCH sportswear to the Class members by the FD shop, collected money to spend for the Class promotion, advertisement and activity. In 2008 that strategy allowed IFDCO to give a grant of 1.200 € to every container shipped to New Zealand from overseas, to attend the Worlds in Napier. That represents just the first step of the IFDCO activities to support our teams; anyway, that process requires time and the cooperation of Class mem-

With regard to the sailing activity 2008, the first edition of the VINTAGE YACHTING GAMES, an event comparable to the Olympic Games, addressed to the past Olympic Classes, has been organized by the Hollandia Sailing Club in Medemblik, on last 20-27 September. With regard to the Measurement Committee, John Best was in charge as Chief Measurer of the VYG for all the Classes involved: FD, Europe, O-Jolle, Soling and Dragon. The excellent organization and participation to the first edition represents the best wish for the next event, that will be held in Italy in 2012. Finally, the success of the Euro Cup and World Cup events fulfill the annual race activity and the IFDCO strategy to develop together with the National Secretaries a calendar rich in International events. As always, many thanks to all the Clubs organizing the FD races every year, since they help our Class to support and go on to organize the classic events that became a tradition in the annual FD fixtures . With regard to the technical matters, the number of carbon riggings is consistently increasing in every country, with a fast evolution with regard to technical solutions, fittings and weight. With regard to the Class life and promotion there is some important news. In 2008, IFDCO and WINCH confirmed their reciprocal interest to their brands, planning a new sponsorship agreement until end 2012. The WINCH Company is going on to perform the classic fashion collection; moreover, besides the actual "Crew" Sailing Wear, WINCH will add a further collection with several models inspired by the FD history and emotion. These clothes, sporting both the HARKEN - WINCH and the IFDCO logos will be available for each FD Class member with a special discount. As always, it will be possible to look at the HARKEN Sportswear Collections with

the FD Logo on the IFDCO Website and in the FD Bulletin. With regard to advertising and promoting the FD Class, since January 2009 the new IFDCO website, with new graphics and aesthetic aspects, is online (www.sailfd.org). Of course, a link to the old website still exists to allow all of us to look up the IFDCO archive. The IFDCO website is a basic, actual and elegant medium to show and testify to the FD Class' history, its life and all the people who have contributed to the development and the promotion of the “ultimate sailing dinghy”. Moreover, the website is the fastest and most modern communication way to promote and advertise our Class to the sailors, the network and to the sponsors. The development, performance, charm and beauty of FD sailing is shown in the different areas and photo galleries; moreover, reports of events, trophies, results and champions that show the FD history in sailing sport are all beautifully illustrated. Finally, the IFDCO organization and its Foundation Rules and bylaws help us to know the Class and its structure. The website, together with the FD Bulletin and the Class Book will charm and induce us to learn about and become involved in the Class life. It‘s my belief that the prestige and the diffusion of FD’s all over the World has been obtained both through the enthusiasm of each team and by the synergy and continuous team-work among the General Committee, the Sub-Committees, the Commodores and the National Secretaries. Now, we are engaged to develop new sponsorships, to support the Class activities and events; moreover, we are going ahead to promote the FD Class to the media and networks. Again, let’s commit ourselves all together, in order to support and quicken every process to advertise the FD!! Finally, let's me thank all the FD sailors, the IFDCO Officers and the Editors of the FD Bulletin, engaged in the Class life and activities. ...........and while I ‘m looking forward to the future, I go on to dream about the FD.............. I wish all of you a wonderful sailing season 2009!! Alberto

Vintage Yachting Games – Medemblik 22 / 27 September 2008 (by Casper Schaaf) The first edition of the Vintage Yachting Games is past. The alternative Olympic Games for formerOlympic sailing classes opened on Sunday September 21st and came to an end after a succesful sailing week. It was a memorable week, which not only saw a celebration of the past and future of five ‘vintage’ sailing classes, but also some fanatic racing by a fleet of international sailors. These sailors, competing in Solings, Dragons, FD’s, Europes and Olympia-dinghies, fought during five regatta days for personal succes and, as in an Olympic tournament, for national succes. After the opening festivities in Castle Radboud the tournament began on Monday. The races were organized according to the Olympic rules of former days, but allowing for modern knowledge and gadgets. And so, though we had to sail old-fashioned Olympic courses of about 2,5 miles we were allowed to enjoy relatively modern luxuries such as the 5-minute start and the electronic compass. In all, a fine concept. The weather during the week had many faces, offering both races in fresh and light breeze. The choppy waves on the IJsselmeer, combined with some low temperatures gave the Spanish and Italian sailors some trouble, but eventually everybody won their fight with the elements. It made the races more varied and, thus, more exciting.

Szabolcs Majthenyi competing in a 12 foot dinghy

The provisional results on Wednesday showed that there was still a lot to gain in most classes. In the Flying Dutchman Hungarians Szabolcs Majthenyi and Andras Domokos were sailing faultless so far, with three perfect races on the board. The next three days would shake up the various result lists, partly because of a slackening wind that seemed to lose its strength day by day. Fortunately the cancelled race on Saturday couldn’t affect the six good races that had been sailed by then. This was enough for one discard race and a group of rightful Vintage champions. Eventually in both the Europe male and female, the Olympia-dinghy and the FD the sailors heading the ranking on Wednesday had managed to succesfully defend their position, while in the Soling and Dragon two new teams struck gold. Vintage organisor Rudy den Outer and his crew took the Soling title. During the elaborate closing ceremony the fresh champions were called to the stage and invited to sail one last race, in the old Medemblik harbor. In specially prepared 12-foot dinghies each class champion was to battle for the final title of Vintage Inter Pares. Under the eyes of all the other competitors and spectators the Flying Dutchman defender Szabolcs showed his skill and managed to win this final price. In closing the next edition of the Vintage Yachting Games for 2012 was announced to be on Lake Como, in Italy. Until that time all people involved in the 2008 edition can look back on a succesful debut of an excellent sailing initiative. [i] www.vintageyachtinggames.org

2008 FD World Championship, Napier, New Zealand Travel It started with the longest journey I have ever made in my life. After a 6 hour flight from Newark to Los Angeles and 11 hours layover, I finally boarded a 747 to Fiji. It was a 10 hour flight overnight, and I was lucky because I was able to sleep almost the entire time. Well, there was a little help from the beer I had before and during the flight. The last stretch from Fiji to Auckland was relatively a piece of cake. So far so good; flying wasn’t so bad - a total of 19 hours in the air. Paul picked me up at the airport and we started driving straight to Napier where the regatta was held. I was fading away rather rapidly - after all I had been in motion for nearly 24 hours at that point. I remember one highlight of this long drive though. It was a meat pie at the gas station in Taupo - what a fantastic invention. It was a nice flaky pie filled with delicious beef. Too bad we don’t have those in the US. After a 7 hour drive we arrived at Napier after dark. The long day of travel took its toll and as exhaustion fully set in we just had dinner and went directly to bed.

Preparation Paul and I had worked very hard on preparing and fixing our boat during last year so we could spend our time practicing before the regatta rather then working on the boat. Well, everybody knows what FD really stands for, “fix daily”. No matter what you do, there is no escape from this reality. First we found a large dent on the starboard side of the hull about five feet from the transom, below the water line of course. It was a big disappointment but we bit the bullet and started working on it. The next bad surprise was our damaged centerboard. It looked like the fuselage of a Junkers Ju-52. Imagine corrugated sheet metal, except this was a centerboard of an FD, grooves going straight down on both sides. It was heartbreaking. Of course things usually happen in threes, and shortly after fixing the centerboard we discovered that the trailing edge of our rudder was warped like a bow. We could not believe the kind of luck we were having. Instead of practicing and resting we were working our behinds off. Luckily by the time the New Zealand Nationals started, we were ready - at least we thought we were.

New Zealand Nationals, the pre Worlds regatta The Nationals welcomed us with a fresh breeze blowing an average 50km/h, gusting over 60km/h. I have to admit I was little worried about our boat, especially the rig. Several teams broke their masts including Szabolcs and Andras (HUN 70), the world championship favorites. Luckily our old trusty girl was holding up like a champ. We were doing pretty well until, as we were beating upwind, one of the gusts caused us to capsize. We recovered, and very tired, finished the race. The day was pretty exciting considering that Paul went swimming only once but I managed to take a dip

three times! I know the math doesn’t work here, so let me explain. In addition to our capsizing, both of the trapeze lines eventually gave up and broke and I disappeared twice behind the boat hanging just on the jib sheets with water rushing up in my nose. It was no fun at all. Miraculously we kept our mast up in both cases, but this meant only one thing - more work on the boat. That night and the next morning we were so focused on repairs that we managed to miss the start of the first race. As you can imagine, we both were pretty upset about it - such a beginner’s mistake. I thought about my friend Michael Freitag from Germany, also an FD sailor and a very good one, who has nightmares about missing a start. I think that I am joining his club now. Even the racing was not working exactly the way we wanted; we missed a couple of wind shifts or on other occasions we forgot to cover - we ended up third overall. We surrendered to just two boats, Frank Nooijen with Marc van der Pol (NED 18), the winners, who by the way showed incredible form, and to Francisco Martinez with Vicente Guijerro (ESP 81) who took a second. It all turned out really well for us because as a first kiwi boat we were eligible to receive the NZL National trophy. It was incredible satisfaction considering all the work and bad luck we had to contend with. We both felt pretty good and hoped that things would go a little smoother for the Worlds.

The Worlds, the real thing Let’s face it, the Worlds were what we traveled this far for. After the Nationals we thought that we were finally ready for some “real” racing. Of course what followed was something that we were not ready for and could not be ready for even if we knew it was coming. First we decided to add a piece of equipment to our boat, a mainsail reef - yes, more work on the boat. We added it because of our experience from the Nationals. 35 knots of breeze requires some mast raking especially because we didn’t bring a code 2 Genoa with us. We didn’t want to risk Paul being stuck under the boom during jibes. All it takes is one such jibe for disaster to strike. After a couple of hours the reef was fitted and ready to go. As happened many times before the weather for the Worlds changed dramatically. The front blew through and the whole series actually ended up being a very light regatta. The first couple of days were very exciting. We started very well - once (after three races) we even found ourselves leading the series, but not for long. I guess we got it in our heads, got too confident and of course we were punished for it right away. Overall we were still happy with how we were going.

Lee-on-Solent, Dervio or Rostock) passed away, losing his battle with cancer. I just saw him in early December during my visit home. We made plans for this year…… I can’t express how I felt but I know for sure that I would never wish such a thing to happen to anybody, even to my worst enemy. I was on the bottom of the bottoms, crushed and in a way I still am. Honza had already been gone for two weeks when I found out. My father did not want me to come home. Since there was nothing I could do, I decided to stay and tried to focus on finishing the regatta. Honza would want me to do the same. Paul and I agreed on dedicating these Worlds to my brother and that kept me going. From that day on Honza was sailing with us. These couple of days was the hardest sailing I have ever done. We somehow managed to keep doing well, due to our extreme focus, even so well that we made some competitors nervous. The night before the last day Enno and Ard (NED 26) approached me in the clubhouse with only one goal in their mind, to make me drunk and consequently incapacitate me for the next day’s last race. Dirty little trick they should have known that my heritage comes from the Czech Republic, the birthplace of the real beer, one and only, Pilsner Urquell. They needed 8 points to get ahead of us. They tried to work their plan and the beer was so good, but they didn’t succeed. I consumed only two glasses that night. Yes, they finished ahead of us in the last race but not in overall standings. The regatta was over and it was time for packing. The awards ceremony fell perfectly in the schedule, right after we tucked our boats in the container. It was a very strange day for me, a day of glory (4th place overall, it was far beyond my wildest dreams) and a day of terrible sadness for losing my closest one at the same time. The New Zealand FD Worlds were an incredible venue. The hospitality of the Napier yacht club was exceptional. This regatta became the most powerful experience in my sailing years. I can’t emphasize enough how much the friendship and camaraderie with all the sailors from around the world means to me. This is an incredible bunch of people and I consider myself a very lucky man to be one of them. Pavel Ruzicka, Paul Scoffin’s crew (NZL 145)

Sailing with Paul was an incredible experience for me. He is an incredible driver and I feel really lucky to be in the same boat with him. This was our first Worlds and only the 6th regatta together and we were doing so well. Everything went right until the day that I’ll never forget. When I was checking my email that morning before the race, I learned that my twin brother Honza (many of you know him from Den Oever,

How rake works Dr. Gizmo’s Physics Chat Corner Typically, FD sailors complement their nautical skills with an excellent performance at the bar, with a sizabable beer gut to prove their olympiclevel aspirations in the latter discipline. Their strong and well nourished bodies come in handy the next time they take their boat out for a ride in strong winds. It is fair to say that the FD is well endowed when it comes to rig size and abundant body mass is a useful asset. But even for Schwarzenegger-sized competitors the power that its sails develop in 30 knots of breeze can become too much of a good thing. Luckily, just when things tend to get out of hand, there is an excellent way to coax the boat back into manageable behaviour: we rake the mast. Instantly the boat feels less over-powered and develops more speed, albeit at a small price: less pointing ability. The question is why canting the rig backwards works so well. There are many arguments that you can come up with to explain the secret of raking. Are they realistic or a red herring ? In my opinion, which is by no means sacred, there are four reasons why rake results in an easier and faster ride upwind. I will discuss them now. I. In the figure you see a sketch of an FD with the rig in its normal light air position and, in red, in a position with substantial rake. The force developed by a sail can be imagined as acting on a single point: the center of force. The dots in the figure correspond to the force centers of the genoa and mainsail. Blue for the unraked and red for the raked situation. As you can imagine, mast rake results in the force centers moving backwards. By itself this would result in too much weather helm but the helm balance can be easily restored by moving the centerboard backwards. As is clear from the drawing, both force centers also move downwards. This is just what we want as it reduces the heeling moment. The reduction of this moment is about 10% for the genoa and 5 % for the mainsail. The mainsail is usually not sailed full-on, the genoa is doing most of the work. As a consequence we can estimate that the effect of lowering the force centers results in a reduction of the heeling moment by about 8%. In other words, a boat sailing in 30 knots of breeze with a raked trim will feel approximately as one sailing without rake but in slightly less then 28 knots of wind. All little bits help but, surely, this alone does not account for the large benefit we know from experience that raking brings. II. Raking reduces the overlap between the genoa and the mainsail. There is a lot of misunderstanding about the role of the so called ‘slot effect’. In many sailing books that address the role of the overlap one can read that it leads to improved performance of the mainsail. The air that is forced through the slot, so it is argued, has to accelerate as it is squeezed through the narrow

space. Because faster moving air has a lower pressure there is additional driving power generated by the mailsail in, and just behind, the overlap region. The result is, so the books say, a more powerful mainsail and hence more speed. Of course, as you and I know, this reasoning is utter rubbish. Would we really see the huge back-wash in the mainsail just behind the mast if there were such an effect? Obviously not. In contrast, the real effect of the overlap is to reduce the efficiency of the mainsail. In fact it turns out that, because of the overlap, the mainsail increases the efficacy of the genoa rather than the other way around. As a result of this back action the genoa delivers more power and at a more advantageous angle. In other words, because of the overlap, the genoa pulls harder and you can point higher. I will discuss the rather complicated interaction between different sails in more detail in a next issue. For now, just take it from me. Back to our rake problem. As we saw, raking reduces the overlap and, as a consequence of the argument I just outlined, will de-power the genoa. This is exactly what we want. Unfortunately we also loose some of our pointing ability, which is a small price we gladly pay for the opportunity for survival offered to us. III. The third effect has less to do with reducing pressure or heeling moment but more with gaining speed. In addition to generating forward thrust and, unwanted, sideways pressure which

tends to make the boat capsize, the genoa also generates lift. This is due to the slanted angle of the forestay. Just look at a windsurfer: he not only cants the rig to windward, which unfortunately we cannot do, but he also angles the mast backwards, particularly in strong winds. Both motions lead to a lift force: it is as if the whole contraption becomes lighter. As a matter of fact, the effective weight of the surfer/board combination can easily be less than half their true weight. For our genoa the effect is more modest. To calculate the effect of the slanted forestay we need a bit of trigonometry plus some Newtonian mechanics. I did this math for you and the, rather approximate, result is that when the boat is sailed completely level and on the wind, the genoa generates about 10 kg of lift in the un-raked situation. With substantial rake this is increased to about 15 kg. A 5 kg additional ‘weight reduction’ for free. It is like removing a heft block of lead from the bow of your boat. A lighter boat is faster. It may not be a lot, but it helps. To convince the doubter that this effect really plays a role it suffices to point out that from experience we know that if the boat is not sailed level but at an appreciable angle of heel we feel that is being pushed into the water; it starts ploughing through the waves and is slowed down. Even in this case raking helps; there is no net lift but the downward push is reduced, again by about 5 kg. By the way, the lift issue is even more important when rea-

An FD with normal and raked rig. The dots show the approximate locations of the centers of force for the two sails: blue for the normal and red for the raked situation. The hatched areas indicate the geometrical overlap between the main and the genoa. These overlap regions are overlaid on the right side of the picture, indicating a reduced overlap in the raked case. The double-headed arrows show the direction in which the force center in the genoa moves: up on a lift and down on a header.

ching. The spinnaker also provides lift and a lot more than the genoa. Also in this case, raking adds to the effect. IV. The final point is the most subtle of all and, arguably, the most important. It has to do with aerodynamic stability which results from the combination of rake and twist. Basically a raked rig has a tendency to automatically correct deviations from the point of sail: the boat will develop more weather helm on a lifter and more lee helm on a header, provided the sails have twist. The situation is somewhat similar to that of modern airplanes with swept (backwards angled) wings that have twist. Such planes are aerodynamically stable. Nose-up or nose-down pitch errors are automatically corrected by the plane without the need for the (auto) pilot to interfere. Now imagine you are sailing hard on the wind and are just about managing to keep your boat at an acceptably small angle of heel whilst fully hiked out. Now you receive a knock-out gust on top of the already strong wind. Doing nothing will result in a capsize or at best in a substantial slowing down (due to argument III). To rub salt into the wounds, the gust not only means more wind but it is invariable accompanied by a lifter: because the ratio of the boat speed and wind strength changes suddenly, the direction of the apparent wind moves back, towards the beam. Your reaction is probably to quickly ease the mainsheet, you may even have done it when you saw the gust coming. Releasing the sheet means that the main is de-powered instantly but also that the slot-effect is reduced. Hence the genoa becomes (indirectly, by argument II) de-powered and its pointing ability is reduced. In this case the latter effect is a good thing because, in view of the lifter, you were pointing

to low to start with. So all is fine? Not quite. When you ease the mainsheet the total center of force moves forward, because you are sailing with less mainsail. This sudden lee helm (relative to the normal situation) and the tendency of the boat to bear away from the wind is exactly the opposite of what you want in a lifter. If you don’t compensate by applying an excessive amount of rudder your boat will turn away from the wind resulting in even more pressure and more slowing down and an eventual capsize as a result. Now consider the same situation, but with much more rake. We already mentioned that the sails have twist. This twist has the following effect: on a lifter the top part of the sail starts to develop relatively more power compared to the bottom: the force center moves up. On a header the opposite happens. This means, unfortunately, that the gust that slams into you genoa at the wrong angle will move the force center up, resulting in even more heeling moment. As mentioned we respond by depowering the main, with a lot of unwanted leeward helm as a consequence. Now check out the raked situation in this case. There is still twist and the force center still moves upward in a gust but, because of the bigger slant of the sail it also moves backwards. This is shown in the figure by arrows in the blue (non-raked) and red (raked) cases. The backwards motion of the center of sail of the genoa in the raked case tends to compensate the adverse leeward helm induced by the lifter. Needless to say that an analogous story, but with the arguments reversed, applies to a sudden lull in wind strength where the reaction is to sheet-in the main. To conclude this section it is instructive to point out that, unlike points I-III above, the stability argument IV may lead to some democracy: in mo-

derate winds light crews tend to rake earlier and more than heavy ones. This may give these light guys a slight edge in gusty conditions because they have better course stability. So there you have it. Let me summarize. The total reduction in heeling moment by lowering of the force centers and through reduction of the overlap can be estimated to be about 10%. Combined with the increased lift of the genoa which leads to better planing properties and the improved aerodynamic stability resulting in less rudder movements we sail, or survive, easier. My guess is that the benefit corresponds to about one tick mark on the Beaufort scale. Of course it is open to debate how big all these effects are in practice; after all, the airflow around sails is very complicated. Things may also depend on crew weight. All we know is that it works in the real world. I hope I have provided you with some ammunition for the discussion of why that may be.

How to get through Regatta Inspection at Medemblik 2009 Most of you will have heard me muttering about the Dutch FD class's fiendish plan to make me and the 'usual suspects' regatta inspect (RI) circa 100+ FD's in 2 days at the end of July. Well, in order for this process to work it will require concentration on both sides, yours and mine!! The plan is this, we are arranging with Harold Wijgers and the Dutch FD "Grown Ups" to have a large tent available at Medemblik to allow us to set up 2 lanes for FD regatta inspection side by side, with the templates for masts, booms, centreboards and rudders between the two lanes. The 2 x sail measurement tables will be elsewhere, but close; Two are necessary because the sail measurement is the longest single process in the regatta inspection cycle, two tables will keep the whole show on the road. The plan will be to start a boat down the left lane and 8 minutes later send a boat on its way down the right lane, and keep that up all day. Each boat will make use of the templates for mast, boom, centreboard, etc and hopefully there will be few log jams. In order for this to work, you, yes, you, must have already been to regatta registration and have your bow number fitted while in the FD RI queue. It

18

will be part of RI and your boat will not complete RI without the number fitted. We will have a template to allow you to fit the numbers in the right place, simple n'est pas!! Also, you will, of course, have checked all your Black or Contrasting coloured bands on masts and booms; you will also be sure that your centreboard stop is still fitted and that the lead corrector weights are in the boat and are in accordance with your measurement form. Your centreboard will be in the boat but not fitted, as usual for RI, and of course, your rudder will just drop into the template and fit perfectly; Also, your boat will be clean and dry for weighing; If it is wet and has been sailed very recently, then we will still weigh it as normal, but there can be no discussion about ballast corrector weight adjustments. You will have the sails that you want to use ready to measure in at the sail tables, and please have your genoas rolled in such a way that we can quickly get at the genoa clew area of both sails; If, as is usual, you are not quite sure which sails you want to use, then by all means do your usual trick of turning up 10 minutes before the end of RI and wanting to measure in 3 or 4 new sails, we will do it, of course, but we might not include you in our Christ-

mas Card list, we may not be completely happy. With that many boats and lots of folk clamouring to get newly arrived sails measured there is scope for things going wrong, so we will all have to be patient. If you have done all these wonderful things, then you and your boat will whizz through RI in 15 minutes or so, allowing us" the usual suspects" to check circa 60 boats in 1 day, a possible 120 boats in 2 days, which will be a World Record, we shall all be exhausted and you will be ready to sail in a Great Regatta. Remember, if we all work together, you do your bit, and we do our bit, we will all emerge from this new experience as better Europeans, or something. I know what will happen, next year and the year after that, regatta organisers will say, you can do 60 boats a day, so you can have not very long at all to do lots of boats at our regatta. Good sailing, see you all in Medemblik.

At the Lammeralm FD sailors rounded flags in stead of marks

A more detailed report with all results and photos you will find in the next issue of the FD Bulletin as well as the Notice of Race for the event in 2010. Ă–sterreichische Flying Dutchman Klassenvereinigung Events, PR DI Heinz Waerder Dr. Moritz Zandergasse 9 2380-Perchtoldsdorf The Austrian FD Class Organization organized the International FD Skiing Championship at the Lammeralm in Langenwang (Steiermark) for the fourth time on the 22nd of February 2009. Not only FD sailors but also their partners, children and guests were invited to join this event. In one heat a giant slalom was completed by the contestants in outstanding weather conditions. Skiarena Lammeralm prepared the piste very well and placed a testing course on the ski run

for the FD sailors, where they could show that they were as much at home in the snow as they are on the sail course. In this event the Hungarian FD fleet was represented by none other than six times FD world champion Szabolcs Majthenyi. With his finish time of 51.64 seconds Szabolcs showed that he is a gifted skier. The only one faster in AKI was Thomas Oswald of the Salzburger Yachtclub, who finished in 50.64 seconds.
