EDITORIAL

Dear FD sailors, In this edition of the Bulletin, you will find a lot of organisational topics because the forthcoming World Championship in Italy is just around the corner. However, there are two topics that are particularly dear to me: by including an article on FD sailing in the Ukraine, we intend to start a new series in which smaller Class Associations wishing to share their passion for FD sailing with FD friends from all over the world can present themselves. In addition, I would like to invite you to read the interview with the new supporters of the IFDCO. With a great deal of commitment and time, Meike, Tanja, Tim and Bene now also contribute to the good functioning of the IFDCO and the diverse communication channels. At this juncture, I can only repeat that the Bulletin lives on contributions from all over the world because, fortunately, the FD is sailed actively around the globe. I would like to extend my special thanks to Vycheslav Chybarov, Enrique Egea Moreno and Dave Hislop for their fantastic and timely articles. In December we could publish the FD calendar for the first time ever with the support of the IFDCO. As promised, the proceeds will be used to support a smaller FD Class Association every year from now own, and I am happy that we were able to present the Austrian Class Association with 1,000 Euros for their Promo Boat Programme this year. Now, all that remains for this edition is for me to wish our friends in New Zealand, Australia and Chile a fairly entertaining winter break, and for all those in the North many exciting regattas with good winds. MARC STRITTMATTER IFDCO Vice President Communications

MARC STRITTMATTER AND SAMI LEITL AT NIKOLAUS REGATTA 2016 TEGERNSEE, GERMANY 3


PRESIDENT´S LETTER Dear Fellow FD Sailors! Hard to believe we are already four months into the New Year and as ever our friends in the Southern Hemisphere were the first to get the 2017 regatta season underway. Thanks to the power of social media it was great to read the race reports & see some great photo’s as the action unfolds. Here in Europe the first event of the Eurocup series was held in Altea at the end of March and despite the disappointing entry of just 12 boats, I understand that there was some good racing in the ‘sun’. Then just a few weekends ago there were 60 boats at Steinhude for the annual Trapeze Regatta hosted by WVStM. Despite the light and unpredictable winds the Race Committee manged to fit in 3 races on the Saturday. Alas by the Sunday morning the wind had disappeared altogether leaving the Race Officer no choice but to abandon sailing for the day. Congratulations to Shmuel & Andreas for winning in Altea and Peggy & Torsten for topping the results sheet in Steinhude. That’s only the start, with more Eurocup events & many National Championships not to mention several of the regular high quality regattas all scheduled to take place in the next 4 to 5 months, there is plenty of opportunity for you the FD sailor to get excited about! I urge you all to try and get to as many events as possible as the best publicity for the class is for lots of FD’s to be seen out on the water. This, of course all leads very nicely up to our World Championships in Scarlino at the end of September. I know the organising Club along with Italian Class have a great event planned, so please let’s all give it our support, wouldn’t it be nice to see 100+ boats on the start line. Elsewhere in this issue of the International Bulletin you will find the formal notice listing which positions on the IFDCO General Committee are up for re-election at this year’s AGCM, which will be held during the World Championships in Scarlino. 4

TREASURER´S REPORT Members of the Executive and General Committee are responsible for all aspects of running the International Class, covering areas such as General Administrative duties & liaison with World Sailing etc., Finance & Membership, Promotion, Marketing & Development, scrutinising bids & deciding on venues for World & European Championships, all Technical & Measurement issues and Boat Registration . To do all this we need a team of willing volunteers who are passionate about the Flying Dutchman and who truly reflect the diverse demographic of our international membership. So if you have the inclination & think you have something to offer the Class please consider putting yourself forward for nomination. For more information about the positions, their roles & responsibilities together with the nomination & voting procedure please refer to the Class Byelaws, which can be found on the website. Over the last year of so it’s been so very encouraging to hear about the renewed interest & resurgence of the Class in Poland, Czech Republic, Chile & more recently in Ukraine. It is so important that we do all we can to support the National Class Organisations in these countries to ensure their continued growth. And finally it just leaves me to say I wish you all a wonderful & hopefully successful sailing season wherever you are and I look forward to meeting up with many of you in Scarlino if not before. TONY LYALL IFDCO President

Recently I got the information that several people at the General committee meeting of the German FD-Class were complaining about the 5 Euro raise of the IFDCO membership fee. It wasn‘t so much about the 5 Euros as about what happens with the money or what it is used for. Just to mention, all financial reports are officially open to everybody so everybody can look into them. Maybe it would be good to first study them before thinking that IFDCO would not be handling the membership fees carefully. I hope I can clear up some worries about this subject in this article. IFDCO is trying to maintain a stable balance on the account so that the class will not cease to exist due to financial problems. Because of a decreasing number of members worldwide we are facing a decrease income on the account. We were very happy to see an increase of 40 members in Germany alone partly due to the World champion in Steinhude. Some facts: Income: out of the membership fees, the buttons and advertising roughly Euro 20.000 Expenses: production and mailing of the Bulletin twice a year 8.000, WC organization 1.500, trophies 1.500, travel expenses 1.000, measurement 1.500, course for new IM (international measurer 500) new templates 1.500, temporary stocking of templates 450, ISAF fee 370, website 1300, repair hacking of the website 500, accountancy 350, production new buttons 1.500, office costs 300 etc etc Somebody was complaining about the lack of helping the young sailors: in Steinhude we paid 50 euros to 12 sailors under 25; in 2017 this will be raised to 75 euros.


GENEREAL COMMITTEE ELECTION Furthermore we tried to reduce costs. We saved 2,000 euros on skipping the trademark rights. We will no longer have a boat registration when the Worlds will be outside of Europe thus saving 3,000 euros for the travel. Advertising in the Bulletin without payment is no longer possible. Several countries who got around paying their fees are now obliged to pay. In every respect all members of the General committee feel that there is more transparency and openness since a long time! Kind regards PETER VAN KOPPEN IFDCO Treasurer

ALTEA, SPAIN SEPTEMBER 2016 On the past 24th and 25th of September it took place the 1st Race for Flying Dutchman class sponsored by the battery manufactured Yuasa Battery Iberia and directed by the R.C.N from Altea (Alicante). On the FD fleet 7 boats participated with different baggage: on one side we enjoyed the presence of old Flyer´s such us Ginés Romero, Fran Martinez or Javier Cayuela (2nd World classified for FD 2007). Other regular participants like Roberto Sevilla and The Egea brothers, who showed skills and ambition. The wind conditions on both days were very favourable with mild intensity (10-14 Km/h), but very appropriate for beginners and old navigators. On Saturday three very tight races took place at all times with a propitious travel to train starts and manoeuvres. Ginés and Fran took the top spot followed by a very good punctuation of Esp-10 of Juan Luis Freniche and Daniel Rodriguez. The next posts were battled and lots of overtaking took place, making the race very exciting. On Saturday night a dinner was enjoyed at the C.N. of Altea with the presence of all the sailors and their families. On Sunday the race started around 11 am with a lot more of wind intensity that made it easy to perform the races with the same winners as the day before plus an additional race won by the ESP-69 of Jose Sanchez. Also a very good progression of the ESP-66 and ESP-1 from. The Egea brothers and their debutant sons, that achieved one of the top places. To end, the awards were given by Juan Ignacio Egea as Managing Director of Yuasa and Alvaro Arrollo representing the C.N. of Altea to whom we thank performing the race and the position of the race course with great success. We finished with rice and with desire of repeating and event that revived great moments from the past and it leaves open a promising future for the Flying Dutchman Class in Spain.

do not have certain winners of FD regattas, all crews struggle for 1-3 places and young sailors create a serious rivalry for FD veterans during the regattas. Despite the short warm period in our latitudes from May to October during navigation period, we hold 8-10 regattas.There are Sailing Federation of Ukraine Internationally Qualified judges at FD regattas. We have our judge, trainer, rescue boats fleet. We have a boathouse, where we keep boats, workshops to repair boats. We have a trailer to transport yachts to regattas. During the winter period we repair boats, have RACING RULES OF SAILG NG seminars. From 2014 we do not have the opportunity to hold competition in Sevastopol, Crimea. All FD regattas take place at internal waters, Ukrainian lakes, Pechenezhsky reservoir. Despite the political and economic problems in Ukraine, we continue to develop FD, hold regattas. We are planning to replenish FD UKR fleet with new boats, to get new sails for the old ones. Many young people are eager to take part in FD movement. We have a big desire to be rightful members of International Flying Dutchman Class Organization. And we are eager to take part in European, and world’s FD regattas. I want to represent the opinion of every FD UKR sailor – FD and sails is our lifestyle and FD class is the most beautiful dinghy in the sailing history. Best Regards VYCHESLAV CHYBAROV

UKRAINE GREETS YOU!

WE INTRODUCE YOU FLYING DUTCHMAN CLASS IN UKRAINE. Because of excluding FD from Olympic program, the class popularity in Ukraine started to decrease. However, there remained loyal FD sailors who continued to develop the class and hold competitions at their yacht clubs. FD class revival began from «Vintage Yachting Games 2005» Regatta in Sevastopol, Crimea. All Ukrainian sailors who developed the FD class took part. The Central Kharkov Region yacht club sailors took part in the regatta either. After «Vintage Yachting Games 2005» Regatta FD sailors came to Kharkov for taking part in the “Slobozhanshina’s Cup” regatta. Regular regatta meetings started from 2005 in Kharkov and Sevastopol. FD UKR fleet has 10 pennants, most are Mader and Bob Hoare and 4 boats are being repaired at the moment. The FD fleet we have now is second hand and due to this, we are in a constant process of searching for new boats, sails, mastings. There is a poor choice at the Ukrainian yacht market and the geographical distant location from European FD movement with slow Customs checks do not allow to answer our equipment needs in time with full scale. We have to repair boats, mastings, make new sails ourselves. There are people of different ages and professions among FD UKR sailors. We have university teacher, IT-engineer, police officer, retired officers, architect, designer, businessmen, constructor of yachts and its equipment. The youngest sailor is 23 years old (photo 1), the oldest FD sailor is 68 years old (photo 91). All sailors have Coastal skipper qualification, some are yacht captains. FD veterans are experienced in yacht sport and took part in USSR regattas. We have been inviting new sailor generation very actively during last few years to FD movement. We have champions of Ukraine in such qualifications as Optimist, Cadet, 420, Laser, participants and champions of European regattas among our FD UKR young sailors. We

EUROCUP 2016

Congratulations to the winners of the Eurocup competition of the international FD class association. The sailing crew CZ21 Jiri Hruby and Roman Houdek asserted themselves among other things by successfully participating in 4 of the 6 events in 2016. This complies with the fundamental idea of the Eurocup rating: Good results at many high-level regattas will lead to success. In 2016 the Eurocup got traditionally started with the regatta in Altea, Spain. 17 boats were able to finish 7 races under top conditions. The next event was the highlight of the year for the international FD association - the World Championship 2017 in Steinhude. 113 boats sailed 10 or 11 races in 2 groups and then in gold and silver fleets. The third run took place in Germany as well - the traditional Kieler Woche, one of the biggest sailing competitions in the world. 11 races had to be completed until the winners and placings were clear. The organiser of the next event were the Netherlands. There were 5 races possible in Medemblik. Our Austrian sailors were great hosts at the regatta at Achensee with all in all 7 valid races. Finally the Italian Championship at Campione del Garda was in the Eurocup rating 2016 with 34 competitors and 7 races. All things considered there were 6 events with overall 47 races relevant for the score. According to the rules of the Eurocup the 9 worst results were discarded. Eurocup winner 2016 is the crew of CZ21, the crew of GER 98 (Shmul Markhoff and various bowmen: Michael Matscheroth, Axel Priegram and Michael Happich) is in second place. In third place is GER 30 with helmsman Thomas Schiffer and bowman Alexander Antrecht. JAN LECHLER IFDCO Vice President Championship

After acceptance by the IFDCO of Nelson New Zealand as venue for the 2019 World Championships over the NZ winter 2016, the build-up for this regatta began in earnest at the 2016/17 NZL National Championships sailed on the future World Champs “race track”, and shared with “those magnificent men in their flying machines” aka the NZ A Class catamaran fleet.

7 on three of the four occasions, with NZL 104, Bruce Lissant-Clayton and Koen Schoutons in NZL 118 and Cody Pomeroy and John Bailey in NZL 72 enjoying tight hard fought racing for the remaining podium positions. Day Three presented a further change in weather conditions with 18-22kts from the south, reducing the A class fleet to 7 and causing the FD fleet to change headsails and

NEW ZEALAND NATIONALS 2017 Day One greeted the competitors with a cold and rainy day and a noted lack of enthusiasm from all the competitors to hit the water and get started, but after the Race Officer make it clear we were starting on time, a final rush got 7 FD’s and 17 A Classes on their way. Stating their intentions from the outset were defending champions Andrew McKee and Dave Hislop on NZL 111, leading almost from start to finish, finishing ahead of local’s Dave Gibb and Callum Logan-Foley in NZL 104, pushed all the way by Finn & Matt Bismark in NZL 7. With the rain finally clearing and the dreaded condition known as “sticky tell-tale syndrome” finally a thing of the past, Race Two got underway in a dying breeze. With wind holes the size of small islands, causing the entire fleet to stretch and condense and no less than four race leaders on the lead lap with the breeze finally dissipating to a succession of irregular zephyrs, the race was on not against each other but for someone to finish the shortened course within the time limit to give others more time to record a result. Although hardly a noteworthy race to achieve it, this race saw Dave Gibb helm his 1st Nationals race win in NZL 104, ahead of NZL 111 & 7 in respective order, with the remainder failing to get home before the clock timed out. Day Two was a total turnaround from the first day, with beautiful sailing conditions for the whole day, with a Northerly gradient breeze being boosted by a typical Nelson sea breeze into the afternoon. NZL 111 set about ensuring that the road to taking the national title off them would be a tough ask and collected four guns for the day, followed by NZL

12

hunkering down for a big day on the water. NZL 111 again getting around the track for a further win in race 7, but pushed hard by NZL 7, with NZL 104 showing some real gains from previous regattas in the heavier breezes pushing hard and finishing closely behind in 3rd. Race 8 saw NZL 7 getting one back on NZL 111, and then Race 9 was taken by NZL 104 proving they were a definitely there to fight for race wins in the breeze. After 3 races in good breeze, Race 10 was a grind for sore and weary bodies, with young Finn Bismark out strengthening and outlasting the older teams on NZL 111 and NZL 104, to gain another well-deserved victory. Day Four was a return to the beautiful conditions of day two, with champagne sailing conditions greeting the sore bodies of the fleet for the final race of the regatta. In the conditions favoured by NZL 111, Andrew McKee and Dave Hislop finished off their successful regatta with a further win (for this race, assisted by 8yo Jack Hislop as tactician), followed by NZL 7 and NZL 104 cementing the other podium points for the regatta. Aside a fantastic regatta, across some varying conditions and good close racing throughout the fleet, this regatta can also be noted for the increased levels of youth sailors competing at the top level here in New Zealand with helmsmen Finn Bismark and Cody Pomeroy, both in their teens, being joined by Callum Logan-Foley in his early 20’s on the sharp end. It is fantastic to see these young guys out on the water keeping the wily old foxes on their toes. DAVE HISLOP

BENEDIKT NAGEL AND TIM WECHSLER GER 90

MEIKE GRETEN GER 112

I F D C O I N T E RV I E W 16

During the FD Worlds in Steinhude Meike Greten has taken over the office the IFDCO General Secretary and Tanja Heijink became the new Chief Measurer. At the same time the Subcommittee Communications was founded with Bendedikt (Bene) Nagel und Tim Wechsler supporting VP Communications Marc Strittmatter with the steadly growing communication tasks. Time to ask some questions!

Bene: Hello, my name is Benedikt Nagel and I‘m 18 years old. I live in the South of Bavaria next to the Ammersee. At the moment I‘m still a student, but I will graduate in 2017 and attend an university afterwards. In the IFDCO I‘m mainly considered with the homepage. While Immo keeps the big part running I try to maintain the little parts like the marketplace, posts and other extras.

FD Bulletin: Could you please introduce yourself for the new readers of the Bulletin. Where do you live? What´s your professional background?

FD Bulletin: How long have you been FD sailing and why FD? Are there other boat classes you are sailing in?

Meike: I live in Germany, in Bad Münder which is 30km away from Steinhuder Meer where we live mostly at the weekends. I live there with my dear patch-work family with my husband Tom, his sons Max and Lukas and our daughter Caya. Before I met Tom I was working for different software companies as a sales consultant and alliance manager. I was travelling a lot from New York to Singapore. Since I’m living with Tom and his boys I decided to work as a self-employed person to make sure that my job and living with the kids works out. In March 2017 I founded a business consultancy. Tanja: I am living in the Netherlands and just moved to Maarn, around 20km east of Utrecht (the middle of the Netherlands). I am working as one of the partners of Result! Managers. This company is specialized in transition and interim management. We deal with all issues on the intersection of Business and IT. Tim: Hi, my name is Tim Wechsler and I come from Germany, more precisely speaking from Dießen am Ammersee. I have practised sailing since I was a child. I am 19 years old and still attending school; I will pass the Abitur [German university entrance qualification] this year.

Meike: I started FD sailing in 2012 at the Europeans in Altea. Tom forced me to sail with him although I never sat on an FD before. When we were sailing the second day I decided that we have to buy one…. ☺ Tanja: I started sailing the FD in 1995. My 3th regatta was the worlds in Torbole as a crew. This was an eye opener for me. What a fabulous class. I decided to become a member of the class and to buy a dry suite. In 2003 I bought my own 2nd hand FD and became a helm. At that moment, I was quite new in racing. Before I races some big boats and was a sailing teacher in the Valk and I was sailing laser. For fun, I do some big boat racing (Dynamic) but I also like to sail in our Danish Junior while having a picnic after a working day.

IFDCO INTERVIEW

Bene: My Helm Tim und I are sailing the Flying Dutchman for a little bit less than 2 years now. But the boat belongs to Tim so I have a little extra space. Therefore I own a 49er. A pretty cool boat which is kind of like my funboat when I need a little variety. Tim: I started sailing the FD in 2016. Previously, I had sailed the 420 Youth Class and subsequently the 505 for one year. But then, the nice mix of comradeship and sportive ambition brought me to the FD. The boat itself equally convinced me because it features a good balance of state-of-the art aspects with conservative and thus affordable ones. In addition, the fact that you are still entirely competitive with a 20-year-old boat speaks strongly in favour of the FD Class. FD Bulletin: Which is you favourite regatta? Meike: Actually… I love all regattas I can participate. Trapez in Steinhude is a regatta I really like, but sailing in Altea is also great, same is at Kiel week. Tanja: It is very difficult to name one favourite regatta. Of course, I like racing on Lake Garda (Torbole). This was my first great real experience in the Flying Dutchman racing. But I also fell in love on other spots like: Sydney Harbour, the bay in Melbourne, the water around St Petersburg and of course Bonaire. Who wants to join end of this year? But of course, is my heart as well with Umag. Here I sailed my first real international regatta with my partner and crew Maarten Bausch. I loved sailing there and the organisation was really good.

Tim: In my opinion, the championships of the year are always a highlight, but the regattas of the Thermikcup appeal to me most. The scenery and the constant winds at the Achensee or at the Walchensee have convinced me. These regattas mean pure sailing fun for me. If I had to choose one of them, I would probably opt for the Achen Lake Regatta because the package offered there simply suites me best. In addition, the fact that it is possible to combine the Achensee Regatta with the one on the Lake Garda is great because from you can travel on from Achensee immediately for a oneweek sailing holiday with two regattas in the most beautiful areas of Europe. Bene: My favourite regatta is definitely the Karwendel Cup at the Achensee. The landscape is so beautiful, the people are so nice and the wind is so awesome. Also the food is very good and of course the party with free cocktails is too. FD Bulletin: What would be your dream season, if there was no limit of time and money?

Tanja: My dream season is starting sailing in Altea. Nice club, good sailing with good friends. After that Easter Regatta in Loosdrecht and Steinhude. Afterwards Kieler Woche, North Sea Regatta, Marina Preis in Torbole and in the end sailing in Bonaire. In my dreams, we have a boat as well in Australia so we can join some nice races there as well during winter time. And if we have all the time of the world I love to sail in Cadiz (is on my list), Lee on the Solent and some nice races in USA as well. But ... Bene: I think I wouldn‘t change too much in the summer. The regattas in the middle of Europe are awesome. Maybe I would check out some of the regattas in Australia and New Zealand. But there should also be some rest from sailing in winter: My snowboard likes to get moved too. Meike: *smile* Go to the national championships in each country, sail the European Championship and Worlds. And the final race would be in Bonaire.

Tim: The perfect season would probably start with training in the South of Spain. Afterwards, travelling directly to the World Championship 2019 in New Zealand, combined with a two-week stay to become a little bit more familiar with the country. Then, the trip would go on from New Zealand to Palma, Mallorca, in order to continue to test the boat and the material. After the stay on the Spanish island, the first regattas would start in Europe, in which we would of course all participate because time and money would play no role. During the summer break, we would move around to San Francisco, USA, to experience this dream area in real life. After the last regattas in Europe, back to New Zealand in order to bring the year to a successful close. Of course, all this would be best with a partner team, because alone it‘s only half the fun!

CRONICA EUROFLYING CUP 2017

SPAIN

On the past days 16, 17 and 18 of March the 2017 Euroflying CUP was celebrated in Altea, Alicante, Spain. The prior days to the race the weather was bad, wind and rain, the days that the race took place were sunny and with good temperature. The first day of the race started with good east wind of around 15 knots that allowed to make there races, where the GER 98 of Markhoff/Happich dominated with the 3 first. The second day with east wind of 15 to 18 knots and a very nice sunny day, another three races took place and were very hard-fought by GER 98, GER 113 and GER 14. On these days GER 113 of Köning/Schäfers achieved the first place of races. On firday night dinner was served for the race´s participants and companions at the Altea´s Nautical Club. Saturday morning, with no decisions on begining positions, two races took place with a wind of 8 knots. Also the day was sunny and with nice temperature. One of the two races was won by ESP-69 of Sanchez/Ruiz and the other one GER 113 of Köning/Schäfers, but the regularity of GER 98 of Markhoff/Happich, with two seconds made him win first prize at the end of the competition. Together with the Euroflying CUP, Spain 2017 was also celebrate, and for second year ESP69 of Sanchez/Ruiz won first place. We thank Álvaro Arroyo and Altea´s Nautical Club for their excellent organization as well to all the German crews to come visit us to Spain. We hope to see you next year! ENRIQUE EGEA MORENO

Nearly 60 ships registered for this year‘s Trapezregatta in Steinhude; apart from many Ger-man ships, we could also welcome many international guests from Spain, Denmark, Great Britain and the Netherlands. From the viewpoint of performance, too, the field was impres-sive: several World Champions, ex-Olympic Champions and innumerable German Champions struggled for victory at this ranking-list regatta. Unfortunately, the quality of the wind did not measure up to that of the field. The wind finder announced only 2 bft for Saturday and even less for Sunday, and it proved to be right. Saturday started with drizzling rain and wind force 1, but Race Manager Stefan Ibold did not get discouraged and sent the fleet onto the water. When the boats were on the water, the rain lifted and the wind freshened to force 2. Thus, the first race could be started on time at 11:00 a.m. after two general call-backs. Under these tricky conditions, Killian König and his bowman and Johannes Brack secured the first victory of the day for themselves, followed by ex-World Champion Enno Kramer from the Netherlands. The second race took place immediately afterwards. Peggy Bahr, former 470 Olympic Medal Winner, and her husband Thorsten showed the rest of the

20

fleet how to sail the FD in light winds. The Borowski brothers ranked second. After the second race, the wind ceased completely and the fleet had a short break. However, the wind came back and the last race of the day and of the regatta had to be completed. Ralf Behrens and Lars Stöckmann won the third race sovereignly. Ashore, too, the HYC proved to be an excellent host, offering an abundance of free beer, goulash and roasts. The participants were chatting, discussing and celebrating at the Club Casino until late in the night. On Saturday, there was bright sunshine, but no wind at all. Therefore, further races did not take place. During the award ceremony, Peggy Bahr stood on the top step of the podium; under those difficult conditions, she had delivered the most constant series. Shmuel Markhoff and Michi Happich ranked second overall, followed by Jörn and Bodo Borowski. The Race Management, who had made the best out of the bad wind conditions, as well as the HYC, who had presented itself once again as an out-standing host, deserve much praise. See you next year!

TRAPEZREGATTA WINNERS 2017 PEGGY AND TORSTEN BAHR

TRAPEZREGATTA STEINHUDE 21


After the spring regatta on Lake Neusiedl had taken place for the second year in a row at the neighbouring Federal Training Centre [Bundesleistungszentrum], the FD Class met again at the Union Yacht Club for the Austrian National Championship at the first weekend in May. The date and the outstanding area were certainly a reason why 29 boats from six nations took part in Neusiedl. In comparison, the Surf World Cup, which took place in the immediate vicinity, attracted attention at the utmost by throbbing bass lines and full public parking spaces. On the water, there was astonishingly little to be seen of the windsurfers. In contrast, there was a lot going on for the very good and dense FD field, which shared the regatta field with the corsairs and 20er Jollenkreuzer this year. On Saturday, very changeable winds entailing many start attempts and even prematurely terminated races demanded strong nerves from all participants. By winning two first places, the two German students Felix Albert and Lucas Merz were the focus of much attention and provided another proof of their tactical brilliance after ranking fifth overall in Steinhude where the conditions had been similarly difficult. With six and seven points, CZ 21 and HUN 70 were not all too close on their heels yet. On Sunday, the challenging conditions continued. Almost no team could avoid blunders, and the whole field was actually relieved about the discard after five races. On Sunday, HUN 70 obviously shook off winter and got the best out of their legs as they finished second only once in the races three to eight. AUT 15 found their pace on Sunday as well, so that they could secure the title of Austrian National Champion for themselves by finishing on the fourth place overall. Finally, on the 3rd day of the Championship, the wind came up and everyone was happy to rake the mast and make speed! Three great races, once again with several start attempts and under very demanding conditions from the viewpoint of tactics. At this juncture, I would like to say a big thank you to the Race Officer Angelika Stark who coped so sovereignly with the difficult conditions, and also to the corsair fleet who patiently endured the great number of false starts and start repetitions we had. Szabolcs MajthĂŠnyi and AndrĂĄs Domokos won the International Austrian Championship, followed by HUN 78 and GER 222, which are worthwhile observing in the further course of this season.

M E A S U R E M E N T I N S T R U C T I O N S Dear sailors, the sailing season has already started and so are also the preparations for the measurement for the WC. We expect a lot of boats coming over to the beautiful scenery of Scarlino. Please read the following instructions for the measurement. 1. All boats, equipment and sails must be presented for IFDCO registration, inspection and measurement. Please sign up on the notice board in the measurement area. 2. Measurement will be in the measurement tent. 3. Measurement times: Friday 22 September 10:00 – 18:00 hrs

Saturday 23 September 09:00 – 18:00 hrs

Sunday 24 September 09:00 – 16:00 hrs

4. Measuring will be in sequence of entry on the measurement inspection signup sheet. Competitors are invited to enter their sail number, bow number and name on the sheet posted near the measurement desk. 5. In order to stream line initial registration, competitors will be given Page One of their boat’s Regatta Inspection Form at the Club registration for the event. They should then make sure that they have filled in both the Helm and Crew’s names, ages, dates of birth, weights, heights, the boat’s number and personal sail number, by the time they arrive at the FD Regatta Inspection desk. 6. It is in the interest of the competitors that measurement/regatta inspection is completed as quickly as possible, in order to have maximum time left for possible corrections. Measurement will take place in the order shown on the sheet. Competitors are advised to check the running order. Please note that boats not present on time may well slip down the list.

28

7. Note that Rule 113, limitation of equipment, is in force for this regatta, so only 1 mainsail, 1 spinnaker, 2 Genoas, 1 mast, 1 boom, 2 spinnaker poles, 1 center board, and 1 rudder may be measured in. Sails should ALL be presented ‘Rolled’ to permit easy access to the Sail Foot. 8. However, up till the end of the measurement period equipment and sails may be offered to replace items which have already passed measurement. (This will require careful timing, it may be that such things can only be accommodated at the end of inspection for that day) 9. Valid Measurement Certificates with matching Measurement Form and IFDCO Membership Cards, with the proper dues sticker for both HELM and CREW, are to be shown at measurement as well as at regatta registration.

Measurement Certificates costing 50 Euros, and sail buttons can be issued on the spot.

10. Boats should be presented in DRY condition, complete with ALL required gear, sails, spars, trapeze belts, lifejackets etc. with the centerboard out of the boat. 11. NOTE: The boat will be weighed with centerboard and rudder out of the boat. 12. Measuring will be carried out as per the FD Class Rules. 13. Attention is drawn to the fact that Rule 39 specifies that it must be possible to remove sheets for weighing. 14. In accordance with Class Rule 11.3 only the owner and the crew of the boat, the measurers, members of the Jury and IFDCO Measurement and Technical Committee are permitted to be present at the measurement.


2017 WORLDS 15. All material will be marked upon passing measurement. The skipper is required to check that all event stickers and stamps are in place and sign a statement to that effect before leaving measurement/regatta inspection.

Helmsmen are responsible that the various markings are in place when leaving measurement and remain intact and intelligible. If the markings are at any time in danger of disappearing or becoming illegible it is the responsibility of the skipper to contact the measurer for their renewal.

16. Only items which are marked as per point 15 may be used during the races. Boats may be checked for equipment used at the finish of each race and/or ashore at any time. 17. Any work (including painting, sanding and sewing) on or alterations to the boats and equipment after measurement must be brought to the attention of the measurers. 18. Please note that anyone presenting a wet boat for inspection will not be in a position to have their boat corrector weights reduced. Have fun and I am looking forward seeing you all on the water.
