EDITORIAL Dear FD sailors, when we started working on this FD Bulletin just after the FD WORDLS in Medemblik we did not expect to have so much material from all over the world. All classes AUS, ESP, HUN, NED, NZL, RUS and US (expect Germany) having major international regattas or championships contributed to this issue. Many thanks! Special thanks and compliments to Sjors Riemslag and Casper Schaaf covering the FD WORLDS on all media channels. Read more about the Medemblik FD WOLRDS page 12

The 2018 FD wall calendar which I have published last winter was a great success and I am able to present 1.000 Euro to the Czech FD Class at their National Championship to support their work. Currently I am preparing the FD wall calendar 2019 and I will donate the profit of up to 1.000 Euro in 2019 to the Polish FD Class to support national FD trainings and/or youth development. Hang a beautiful FD calendar on your wall and support the Polish FD class in 2019! All info see page 55.

PRESIDENT´S LETTER Dear FD-sailors! After the World Championships in Medemblik we Meike Greten and Peter van Koppen write to you the Presidents letter as interim presidents. We believe that again we managed to have another great Championship (yes- even in the Netherlands we sometimes have little wind) under mediteranian circumstances. A bit disappointing was the number of competitors just over 70 as we hoped for at least 100. We tried to explain why this happened but believe it was a combination of several circumstances at the same time. It was very good to see a great spirit and atmosphere in the class.A lot of happy and satisfied faces during the week. We knew that Tony Lyall had given us notice of standing down as our president and according the official procedure we had a three months time span for new nominees. As nobody was proposed for the job it was decided in the AGCM that Meike Greten and Peter van Koppen will temporarily take over the tasks of the president. We will open another period of 3 months for nominees.At the end of the champoinship  we received one proposal for the presidency. We will see if there are other candidates coming. Shortly after the the Worlds also Zsofia Csanda informed us she will step down as the boat registrar at he end of September 2018. A job she did for many many years with all her heart. Tony Lyall offered to take over her job as he still wants to do something for the class.

ZSOFIA CSANDA At the AGCM we decided that we have put more energy and money in the young sailors. We reserved more budget for this. As it is also important to try to get more young sailors into the class in countries like the US Australia and New-Zealand we are happy to receive any suggestions from these countries. As the next Worlds In Nelson New Zealand are coming up pretty soon we wish all the participating teams good luck with the preparations and a very good time very down under! For your information: due to the distance there will be no competitors hearing nor a national secretaries meeting in New Zealand. Furthermore we welcome any remarks ideas and suggestions in the next year outside and before we have the next meetings in Hungary! MEIKE GRETEN AND PETER VAN KOPPEN Interim Presidents

Everybody knows “Zsofia” Our FD class Registrar has tendered her retirement and for those of us who have known her for a number of years, we will miss her. She has the knowledge to be able to find information on virtually every boat that has sailed in the class and every sailor who has sailed in the class for years. She can provide sail numbers and personal numbers from virtually every boat that is sailing. How did someone get a particular personal number? Zsofia has the answer. They owned the original #3 so why not let them use that as their personal number especially if the original boat is long gone. Maybe you want to know if the sail button (now sticker) was issued two years or twenty years ago. Zsofia has the answer. If you are at a regatta in Hungary, Zsofia can provide after race snacks, hors d’oeuvre for hundreds or check out her goodies at registration. That is on top of handling all the paperwork required to confirm that the boats and sailors actually are legal. She even does all that without wearing Superwoman’s cape. If you think that she is just another pretty face, her son has been a top ranked FD sailor so she would probably do just fine as a crew chief and/or coach for a team. Is that why HUN 70 is so fast? Thank you Zsofia for giving your time and talent to the FD Class. We will miss you. IFDDCO

Apologies for absence were received from Tony Lyall and Rinaldo Rinaldi.

TOP 3 Confirmation of the Minutes of the AGCM – Scarlino 2017 The Minutes of the AGCM held 28th September 2017 in Scarlino are agreed.

TOP 4 Matters arising from those Minutes not covered by Agenda items No matters arising.

TOP 5 President‘s Report Firstly, I apologise in advance that this is a rather brief report but not being able to sail & therefore absent from most events & championships for the last few years means I‘ve very quickly lost touch with what‘s happening.

Activity

Generally, in Europe the class is holding up well however I‘m seeing that entries for some events are slowly declining. Looking at the wider picture as a class we should be starting to get very worried about what‘s happening in USA, AUS, NZL and even in GBR, because if we don‘t we will very soon become a European mainland centric class. I have to say it‘s a bit worrying that the decline particularly in the USA & UK seems to have come about without even a raised eyebrow from IFDCO! It‘s something I‘ve been asking for many years and that‘s a list of the number of IFDCO Members sorted by Country say for the last 10 years, this would be a very useful tool for the GC to see the tends and then the can act & plan accordingly


GCM

Whilst I think we all agree that the young sailors are out future and as a Class we need to do everything we can to encourage them, however equally we need to make sure we retain the current sailors because if we don‘t there won‘t be a viable class for these young sailors to ‚grow‘ into. In last year‘s report I outlined what I thought were the priorities for 2018 -2020 and where we needed to focus our energies … • Increased promotional activity to attract new mem bers into the class. • Take the young sailors initiative the next step and establish a youth development programme. • Attract a major Class sponsor. We desperately need a significant injection of external financial resources if we are going to properly support a youth development programme. We also and need to be in a position where we can offer substantially better grants towards container costs to enable more people to attend our World Championships. Alas my absence from the FD scene has meant any progress in these areas has stalled.

Championships, Events and Regattas

We were all on a massive high having had over 100 boats at both of the last two WC‘s (Steinhude & then Scarlino) so just 74 boats here in Medemblik is a massive disappointment especially when we would normally expect something around 100 boats for a Championship in Holland (112 in Dan Over in 1998 & 92 in Medemblik in 2009). It would seem from what I‘m hearing & being told is that the choice of venue and timing are big factors when competitors are deciding whether to go or not to go to major Championships. It‘s always going to be difficult to satisfy everyone, so it‘s always going to be a delicate balance between maximising attendance whilst at the same time not excluding any one segment of our membership. For this reason, I think much more care, time & thought must be given during the selection process when we are choosing venues for World & European Championships.

Communications

Communications are key to the success of any organisation whether it be in business, Charitable organisations or sports clubs such as ours. The members want and expect quick & easy access to information. I can‘t understate just how import it is for us to continue communicating on all mediums, we are in an era where we can‘t take anything for granted, we have to work hard not only to attract new members but also to keep the existing ones.

Summary

People‘s lives are busier than ever so getting the balance right between work/family & leisure activities can be a real struggle. Sailing is a time consuming & expensive hobby so we need to remain mindful of that when we are planning our regatta programmes. As we all know the FD is a great boat that is both exciting, challenging yet so satisfying to sail, but that might not be enough in itself to attract sailors in the future. The world of sailing is changing ‚foiling‘ is the new must do, IOC are looking for more diversity & inclusiveness, so it‘s looking inevitable that there will be changes in the Olympic Classes and the conventional/traditional classes could lose out, I know discussions are going on about changing the Medal Race format, the Club League sailing is becoming really popular especially in Germany, the single handed classes are having a massive resurgence. Now all this may seem remote from us but down the line all these changes & little tweaks will have an impact on our sport & the FD Class, so we need to be prepared. In closing‚ It‘s been an honour and a privilege to serve as your President albeit for only one term. I had so many ambitions & plans, alas injury‘s, all starting with a simple fall here in Medemblik 3 years ago have seriously curtailed my sailing and limited my effectiveness as President for which I apologise. I want to thank all those that have served on the GC during my tenure it‘s been a pleasure to work with you all. I wish the Class and all it‘s the very best for the future. Hope to see you all on the race course sometime soon. TONY LYALL

TOP 6 General Secretary Report (including any item from World Sailing) Meike Greten mentions following points: • The interaction between the countries have to be improved and a better exchange of information over the whole world is necessary to have a better coherence in the whole class. • We will provide an iPhone/Android App for the whole IFDCO class to spread news from each country to the whole FD fleet all over the world. This App should be THE communication channel for all FD sailors. There should be no necessity to install local Apps or similar things. • We need to update the Byelaws in terms of the wording “ISAF” vs. “World Sailing”. A proposal will be send to the Committee by Meike. 7


• World Sailing • WS implemented a new Regulation 38: Mandatory Reporting of Safety Incidents • Meike will check why WS is not updating our information on their website regarding titels, pictures, dates etc.

Decision: Grant for containers for the Worlds 2019 in New Zealand is agreed to 2.500 €. Another 1.000 € is agreed for as a grant for youth (same conditions like Youth Grand). Applications till 15th October 2018 to Peter van Koppen. The 1.000 € grand will be divided by the amount of applications.

TOP 7 Treasurers Report

Decision: For the Worlds in New Zealand (in general “overseas”) the costs for officials will not be taken over by IFDCO (e.g. Boat Registrar, VPs). Peter will double check the minutes of AGCM 2014, 2015 as this was already discussed in those years.

Accounts for 2017

Peter van Koppen hands out and presents the financial report in a detailed way. Peter highlights the following points: • A lot of sails were sold 2017, good income from Sailbuttons. • The costs for measurement were so high because Pauls puts in his costs for several years back. They are all correct and were paid. • The Bank account has a total of roughly 75.000 €. It is necessary for the class to keep a sum of round about 50.000 € for a championship if there may be no volunteering sailing club hosting a World championship. Decision: IFDCO supports the Dutch organization of the WC 2018 in regards of prices because there are not 100 boats as expected. A total of 700 € is paid to the Dutch WC 2018 organization. Decision: Creating new measurement certificates for owner changes are free of charge. The creation of new certificates in case of any lost will be 30 € (50 € on spot) which needs to be paid to IFDCO. Peter will prepare an invoice model. The report is agreed.

VP Championships

Update on the Worlds in New Zealand 2019: The notice of race (NOR) is updated and hangs out already at the Worlds notice board in Medemblik, Marc will publish it on the official website. The course may be shortened, but sailing will be first sausage, then triangle. Decision: Appendix P of the Racing Rules of Sailing will be tested for the FD class in Hungary at the European Championship. Decision: Rinaldo will take care that the Championship rules will apply at the next events. Decision: The Championship Rules need some updates; each member of the General Committee will send out his/her comments so that we can come to a decision in a short time.

Update on the Finances for 2018 to date

Decision: The events for the EuroCup 2019 will be the same as 2018 (Altea, Kiel Week, Dutch Championship, Achensee, Lake Garda, Czech Championship).

Decision: The youth will be supported by a “Youth Development” budget of 1.500 € for training purposes and other things to support the happiness of the young sailors below 25 years. The report is agreed.

Decision: The European Championship in Hungary will be from 16.-20. September 2019 (Hungary Nations as warming up on 6.-8. September 2019, Measurement from 13.-15. September 2019). There will be no lay day. For the Worlds 2020 the General Committee received an application from Spain to sail in Altea including a pre-race (free of costs for all participants).

The budget 2018 was presented by Peter van Koppen. There are no special expenses in 2018 expected.

Budget for 2019

The budget for 2019 will be similar to 2018. No special expenses are expected.

TOP 8 Officers Reports

Decision: The World Championship 2020 will be in Altea some when in September.


GCM

We received some applications for 2021 (verbally) from Warnemünde, Germany, Lake Garda, Italy, Poland, Austria and Portugal. Decision: Rinaldo will take care, that each nation will fill out the checklist and questionnaire with detailed information so that the General Committee can decide in the next meeting where to go. Decision: The General Committee will create an online template for application for a World/European Championship this will then be send automatically to the whole Committee. Rinaldo will work out the checklist. Official Propsol by Marc and some others: Increase number of races at regattas per day. Decision: We whole fleet will be asked, it is not a decision which the GC can do. Official Proposal from Sascha Schröder: No WC/EC in time of exams (difficult for a worldwide-class). Decision: Try to do so, based on costs/winds of the venue.

VP Communications

Marc presents the work of him and his subcommittee with Tim and Benedict (GER 90). Established new homepage www.fd-worlds.com (hosted at Marcs hoster) for all official world events. Bulletin: Marc complains that no more material is coming in. It is very difficult to create a magazine without information from the sailors. Marc invested the new budget of 1.000 € for bumper stickers, which were send out with the last bulletin, therefore Marc covered 500 € from his personal account, because he wanted high quality and UV protected stickers. Marc wants to spend money in professional videos for a better promotion. Decision: Youtube Channel – one place for all FD sailing videos – will be set up by Marc and his team. Decision: Promoting videos creation, 1.000 € for Marc. Sailfd.com Website may be hacked. Check links to different countries.

VP Technical Nothing!

VP Development

Svend was out of communication the last months. He works on the questionnaire, talks to communication expert and also to FD sailors. He found an easy tool to do questionnaire and small survey. This will be sent out to General Committee soon, then national secretaries for translations. Svend asks for feedback.

DAY 1: TWO SUCCESSFULL RACES COMPLETED ON DAY ONE

PHILIPP ZINGERLE (AUT 38) ABOUT DAY 1

14

Despite light and unstable wind predictions the race committee was able to successfully complete two races today. The top 3 after two races are 1. DEN 21 Jörgen and Jacob Bojsen-Moller 2. HUN 70 Szabolcs Majthény and Andras Domokos and 3. ITA 4 Nicola and Francesco Vespasiani. The first race was sailed in a stable 2 Bft. At the start of the second race the wind picked up a bit but in the last part of the race the wind started to deminish. “Well done!” to the race committee for a great start of this event.

Hi Philipp you did quite well today. Would you like to tell me something about both races? Philipp: ‘Well thank you the first start really favored the left side of the line and we were quite close to the pin end. We headed over to the right side as soon as we could and tacked on shifts. We managed to reach the top mark in fourth position or so. After that it was really tight. We sailed a lot against Dirk Bogumil (GER 199) but we didn’t know that he got a OCS. That was bad luck for him. When


ALL INTERVIEWS AND REPORTS BY SJORS RIEMSLAG AND CASPER SCHAAF LEFT TO RIGHT: SJORS RIEMSLAG (INTERVIEWER) JAN (GER 99) AND CASPER SCHAAF (INTERVIEWER)

you are in the front group every small mistake immediately costs you a position. We were glad to finish in a fifth place.’ And the second race you finished ninth? Yes the race was really quite similar to the first race. Only the right side off the start line was a bit better. Fred Schaaf started at the most right position I think and got to the top mark first. We started a little more to the centre and got to the top mark in the top 5 group. The second leg to the gibe mark was really tricky. It was really

a downwind leg to the gibe mark. Dirk Bogumil was on the outside and Jörn Borowski the Hungarians and the ITA 4 gibed on the inside. They did that well and so we lost some positions. Fred Schaaf was still leading with the Bojsen-Mollers close behind. In the second upwind leg to the top mark the ITA 4 got really lucky on the left side. Thank you I’ll write it up right away.

DAY 2: ONE RACE FINISHED TODAY HUN 70 CLIMBS TO THE TOP SPOT After many hours on the water today the fleet had only ompleted one race. The Race Committee tried to get several races but two races had to be abandoned. The one race that was finished was won by the HUN 70 in front of the GER 87 and GER 30. The defending World

16

Champions (HUN 70) are now in the top spot in front of DEN 21 and NED 26. After the finished race the fleet had to wait long hours on the water. After many hours the northerly sea breeze started to come in. And the Race Committee started a new race. In this last (abandoned) race the wind started to shift more than 90 degrees in the second up wind leg. The decision to stop the race was correct. More racing tomorrow.


FD WORLDS 2018

ROLAND KIRST (GER 87) ABOUT DAY 2 Hi Roland you finished third today. Would you like to tell us something about the race? Well you know me. I like it when there is a bit more wind. Today was really long and hot and when it is like that my brain becomes like a pudding.

‘In the race we started on the right side of the start line and we could go to the right side lay line to tack there and we came to the top mark in third position. So I was happy. But I am also happy to be on the shore now with a beer. It was unlucky that the last race was abandoned when the breeze was up. Maybe for tomorrow it would be better to go out once the sea breeze comes in.’

NICOLA AND FRANCESCO VESPASIANI (ITA 4) ABOUT DAY 3

18

Hi guys every day we like to interview some sailors who are high in the rankings. Can we ask you a few questions today? You did better in every race today how was today for you? It was a nice day. Racing was really hard because of the light winds and waves. The level of sailing is quite high here. Everyone in the top 20 is fast. It’s not as easy for the HUN 70 and the DEN 21 as it was in other years. The start is very important here. It determines at least 50 percent of the race result. We found that out yesterday.


FD WORLDS 2018 When you don’t start very well it’s almost impossible to get back to the front. Did you finish on the podium in other World Championships or would this be your best result so far? We finished third a couple of times before; in Romania in Scotland and in Croatia. The Danish and the Hungarians are really on another level. They are better prepared than we are and they have way more experience. Would you be able to beat them? Well they are human so technically it should be possible.

Were you happy with the increasing wind today? We are good in light and medium conditions but we are getting better with a bit more wind. The Race Committee did a good job today. The whole event is well organized. We were here 10 years ago. We like this year better because of the sun!

RACE DAY 4 :2 RACES IN THE BEST POSSIBLE CO N D I T I O N S . HOT AND WINDY! Race day 4 was completed successfully. Two races were sailed in the best possible sailing conditions. A warm light wind with warm water. The Danish former Olympic Champions and multiple World Champions did a perfect job with two first places today. They are in the lead by 7 points in front of the Hungarian defending World Champions. Only a very specific scenario would make it possible for the Hungarains to beat them in the last race tomorrow.

JAN HOHENDORF (GER 99) ABOUT DAY 4

Hi Jan every day we interview a team that did well in the races of the day. You did very well today with a ninth and a fourth place. Would you like to tell us something about your day? Today Bernd (Höft) and I started with some discussion about the right trim for the wind circumstances. We started both races on the right side of the line like we planned. Both races we got to the top mark in second place. Was it hard to keep your position after that?: Yes that’s always hard with people like the Bojsi’s and the Hungarians behind you. But it’s very nice sailing when you are in the top group. When you are more in the back it becomes so much harder to sail well. When your are in the top group you have free wind and you can plan your decisions better. Plus you don’t have as much situations with shouting and bumping into each other. We were surprised by one incident between Enno and Ard and Shuki (Shmuel Markhoff and Lars Stöckmann). Enno pointed out that Shmuel did not pass in front of him correctly in a very relaxed manner and Shmuel took his penalty without any complaints. That’s how the top competitors deal with each other. You have had a troubled championship so far. That’s a pity. What happened and what were your expectations? Yes we were both ill in the first half of the week so we decided to skip a day. Unfortunately there were three races that day. And on the first day we took a U-flag so there you go. Last year in Scarlino we weren’t there but two years ago in Steinhude I was 24th with André Budzien so we hoped to end up somewhere between 15th and 20th place this year. By the way André just became World Champion at the OK-dinghy Worlds in Warnemünde! How long have you been sailing FD? Since three years. I bought the boat from Björn Althaus. Before this I’ve sailed many other classes but I’m really happy in the FD class. It’s very nice that you can just walk up to the Bojsi’s or the Hungarians to ask them a question and they will just talk to you in a friendly way. Not like ‘you’re in the back of the fleet so I won’t talk to you’ or anything like that. 20

When the Medembliks worlds were announced we still didn’t even know we were going to go together. It was around April when we decided we had to go yes or yes. We didn’t even have a good boat but we had an old one for training. The thing we knew for sure is that as cousins and good friends, we would have good coordination together and that we could be together for a long time. Our first day together was in the Trofeo Yuasa were we ended 3 of 6 races and we were pretty happy. Then we trained hard 3 or 4 days trying to at least make all the maneuvers softly. When we finally arrived to Medemblik our main objective was to finish all the races of the Worlds, learning all the things we could. The good luck was among us with light winds perfect for us (helmsman, 75kg/ crew, 65kg). The first start was horrible and also the first finish ( we turned back to port 1 meter before the finish line ) but we finished both races. The second day was better with some improvement in the starts. The third day was very good when we arrived at the first boie in one race with at least 30 boats behind us. We couldn’t stop looking back and that made us do many mistakes and fall many places again. Despite of that we were able to finish the 3 races, so we were happy. The lay day was very hot but we enjoyed it with the family in the beach. That hot day did something to the boat that would not help us go fast in the fourth day making us desperate trying to make it better, but we weren’t able to do much. The last day was the best. We did our best position, 56 ( being disqualified later :(...). 

26

As you may see our mission was completed. We learned tons of things and we finished all the races as planned. But this is a thing we couldn’t have completed without some help. Thats why we want to thank our family, and specially my dad Juan and my uncle Enrique, for everything, from buying us a 420 so we could start loving to sail to bringing us to Medemblik and compete it with us. We also want to thanks Ernst Greten for letting us use his boat and helping us with everything. We want to thank all the support and enthusiasm that all the flyers have shown all this week also the ones from Spain like Marco and Roberto. Also thank the people organizing. Finally we want to congratulate the brothers Bojsen-Moeller for winning the worlds... again. Now we just want to train hard so we can go to higher positions as we enjoy flying the Dutchman. We hope to see you soon in New Zealand?, or if not for sure in Altea in 2020.  ¡Viva el Flying! JAVIER AND GUZMÁN, ESP-11.

YOUTH REPORT

Hello, everyone! My name is Dmitry Novoderezhkin. I am from Moscow, Russia. I am from the family of sailors. My grandfather, my father, my uncle and my sister sail different types of boats. My grandfather was a leading FD sailor in the USSR and I am happy that now I can continue this tradition. I started to sail optimist boat when I was 6 years old. My mother says that I once came with them to the yacht club for a family getaway on a boat, but on the way I got acquainted with trainers from a sailing school and decided to stay with them and learn sailing. I sailed optimist until I was 11 but then stopped. For the next couple of years I practiced randomly on different types of boats but recently joined the Russian FD community and crew for my father and uncle. It was the first time in my life when I took part in the world championship.  I am 14 years old and I think I was the youngest sailor at the championship. However, my age was not an obstacle. My father and I competed well and even won a special prize for the best result among crews with young participants. The organization of competition was very good! Judges were fair. Wind was not so strong but stable. I liked it there and would like to come back next time. Meanwhile if any of you would like to visit Moscow, you are welcome! We’ve got a boat waiting for you. DMITRY NOVODEREZHKIN

This report covers the period from the FD World Championships at Scarlino September 2017 to the World Championships at Medemblik July 2018.

SCARLINO 2017 (ITALY)

In Scarlino I worked closely with the organising committee of Club Nautico Scarlino. The World Championships took place from 25 until 30 September. Paul, John and I worked really good with the team of the Italian measurers. They were good and great. It was a good place for measurement. Everything was well planned and sorted. However, the measurement locations were a bit away from each other so it was sometimes hard to coordinate. We had 3 days of measurement to measure in total 102 boats. We needed all the time to measure all the boats. No spare time was left. The Italians had put a nice boat weighing gantry copied from the Germans. This worked really good. Again the boat weighing caused no hold ups. Around 10% of the fleet needed to add weight or could remove weight. Overall the boats were fully dry. Still the biggest cause of delay was the mast/boom jig. 2 Main issues can be stated: the measurement of the bearing point and the genoa halyard sheeve. We need to solve this for the next Europeans in Hungary 2019. We had only one line and when more than 80 boats appear a second line is essential with 2 good people to explain and measure the mast.

28

The sail tables worked really fine. The only problem we noticed was that around 20 sails appeared with old buttons. We recommended the sailors to or measure in another sail or to buy new correct buttons. As a class we have a complete list of all the issued buttons. During the regatta we did on the water measurement. I would like to thank the Italian measurements again for their support. It was a great job because of their good help.

MEDEMBLIK 2018 (THE NETHERLANDS)

The World Championships in Medemblik (The Netherlands) took place from 20 July until 28 July. Paul and I worked closely with the Dutch Class Organisation. And of course I could rely on the advice of John. We were expecting a lot of entries during the Worlds (100+ boats). But in the end we measured 75 boats. We had 2 no shows. We created a measurement area with 2 lines for the mast/boom jigs to be prepared for a 100+ boats. Everything was closely together so it was good to have a good overview of the measurement area. The measurement tent had a high entry and because of this we decided to do the boat weighing outside the tent. In May we held a pre measurement at my place for the new Dutch teams. We had a team of 5 new teams. We trained them in measurement for 2 purposes: 1) to be prepared for the Worlds and the measurement of their boats and 2) to make them enthusiastic to participate the measurement team during the Worlds Measurement. This day was a great success and was a good prologue for a real enthusiastic measurement team with sailors. The measurement team consisted of 2 official measurers, a few well trained and experienced measurers and good sailors/members from the UK, the US, Germany, Hungary and the Netherlands. On Friday we closed the measurement tent between 15.00 hrs – 17.00 hrs due to a lack of sailors who wanted to have their boats measured. We finished the measu-


MEASUREMENT REPORT IFDCO AGCM 31TH JULY 2018

rement at Sunday at 15.00 hrs. Almost all boats were measured before lunch time. The Mast/boom jigs still are the bottle neck of the measurement. We had 2 lines in place. We still had a lot of discussion about the genoa halyard sheeve and the measurement of the bearing point. Paul and I will come with a proposal for the European Championship 2019 in Hungary to make this easier for everybody. Around 10 boats needed to add weight to the rudder or centreboard. We need to explain in more detail how to weight the centreboard, what is included. Paul and I will write a clarification and proposal for this. The coming months I will recheck the templates of the centreboards and rudders. I will absolutely be certain that they are correct, because we experienced some problems with the thickness. Even with a brand newly measured centreboard. The backside of 1 Mader boat is measured again because of changes to backside of the hull. This was mentioned before. This is the legal way of doing this. We need to emphasis

to the sailors that changes to the hull automatically leads to a remeasurement of the hull and that the measurement form needs to be changed as well. It is mandatory that the sailor informs us directly and minimal before a Worlds or European series will start. In all other cases the boat can be thrown out of the series. In Germany we used the boat weighing gantry for the 1st time. This worked fine and the Italians build a nice one as well. It is fast and less people are necessary. You can do the job easily with 2 measures (instead of 4 inclusive sailors for lifting the boat). This year we rebuild a swing to make a mobile construction we can reuse every championship. It is an easy mobile construction and together with the hanging scales it is easy to transport. It fits on a normal boat trailer and the top of a car. (Unfortunately it is made of wood so we cannot import this to Nelson in February). The only problem we had was the wind. We did the measurement outside of the tent. We decided that no correctors were allowed out of the boats due to the wind. 7 boats needed to add extra weight (around 10% of the fleet). 3 boats needed to adjust the genoa blocks because they exceeded the 60 mm. The sail measurement was fine again. No real problems. We had 1 sail which was too large in the top and one new sail with an old sail button. A few new sails appeared with the new buttons. 2 boats needed to ask the jury for an exception of the correct sail number. I really enjoyed working with the team of sailors. I think this will be the way forward. Action list for the next championships: • Proposal for the genoa halyard sheeve • Proposal and clarification for the weighing of the centreboard • Check the templates for the rudders and centreboards • Deliver a proposal for the organising club what is needed to make the measurement successful and low in costs (number of

qualified measurers available, number of volunteers needed, etc.) • Promotion of new young measurers. NELSON 2019 (NEW ZEALAND) The next World Championships will be in Nelson. I will do the preparations with the organising committee for all the measurement stuff and check how we can organise that all boat papers are correct before the Championships will start. With the experience from the last 2 Worlds I will check with the New Zealand committee if we can reduce the measurement time in Nelson (dependent on the number of entries). The good part is that we can really estimate the number of boats really soon because of the transportation. TANJA HEIJINK

NEW ZEALAND CHAMPIONSHIP DAY 1 The day before the regatta, Nelson endured one of the biggest storms to lash the region for many years. This, coupled with the near perfect bad timing of a king high tide, caused significant structural damage to many of the buildings along the water front, including the Nelson Yacht Club. Thankfully passing through before the regatta started, the first obstacle for most of the helmsmen was to avoid the massive amount of flotsam in the harbour on the way out to the course. Special mention must be given to Shaun Tee, crew on NZL 118, whose flight was cancelled from Wellington, due to the weather, meaning he had to get up before 5am the day the regatta started to catch the 6am ferry for a 3hr lumpy sailing across Cook Strait, then to hitch-hike from Picton to Nelson (normally a 2hr drive) to make it in time for the start of the 1st race – true commitment! Once all the “on shore excitement” of following Shaun’s progress to Nelson had passed, the crews were greeted by a beautiful 12-15knot sea breeze for the start of Race 1. After a good start and solid first beat, defending champions NZL 111, Andy McKee & Dave Hislop made it to the first mark with a comfortable lead, only to have a ‘crew cau-

DAY 2 sed’ Spinnaker issue take them from the lead to dead last by the time they reached the wing mark. The fleet obviously used this opportunity to capitalise on this issue, with young Finn Bismark and Dad Matt in NZL 7 taking up station at the head of the fleet for the next lap until a capsize on the final leg dropped them from the lead to 4th. First race line honours went to local crews Dave Gibb and Nick McBride in NZL 104 and Bruce Lissant-Clayton with Shaun “The Ultimate Rockstar” Tee in NZL 118 taking 1st and 2nd place respectively, NZL 111 managing to work themselves back to 3rd. By the time Race 2 was ready to start the breeze had built to 15-16 knots with seaway building to match. A reasonable shift just before the start caused the top mark to be moved without time to reset the wing mark. This caused a super tight two sail first reach in which NZL 104 managed to put themselves through the “green room” with a fantastic interpretation of a submarine, unfortunately inflicting a serious cut to the leg of the crew that required a return to shore for attention. As for the racing, the family connection on NZL 7 was working well for the majority of the race until a further increase in breeze meant a hole change and remoding for the final beat. This allowed NZL 111 to just squeeze by for a win, NZL 7 taking a close 2nd and NZL 118 claiming the 3rd. With the breeze now a solid 18-20 knots, Race 3 was a tough encounter to finish the day out. NZL111 again made it to the first mark with a slender lead over NZL 7. However, on this occasion, sailing conservatively on the reaches cost them one place with NZL 7 electing to pop the Spinnaker on the 2nd reach to overtake and then hold the lead for the remainder of the race. NZL 111 held on to the 2nd, with NZL 118 finishing off a bloody good day with another 3rd.

32

The excitement for NZL 104 started before they even got to the race area, when they worked out just outside the harbour entrance that somehow fitting the bungs had been missed off the pre-launch checklist, necessitating a somewhat sluggish return to the ramp for a quick drain and extra quick rubber duck assisted trip out to make the race 4 start. Out on the course there was a nice building sea breeze of 6-8 knots by the time racing got underway. There was a very tight race between NZL 111, NZL 7 & NZL 104, with seldom more than a handful of boat lengths separating the three boats all the way to the finish, where NZL 111 slipped in for a 1st place. NZL 104, after separating at the top mark, overtook NZL 7 within boat lengths of the finish line to claim a 2nd and NZL 7 closely behind for a 3rd The breeze had built again to 10-12 knots for race 5, and the fleet was set for another tight race. This was unfortunately upset by a large shift a third of the way up the first beat, turning the course into a one sided drag race and limiting passing opportunities. Fortuitous-


ly, NZL 111 found themselves on the right side of this shift and led from then on, with NZL 7 claiming the 2nd and NZL 118 claiming a podium spot for the first time on day two. A similar 10-12 knots was present for the start of race 6, with the only change being an increase in seaway from the new wind direction. This on top of the previous chop made for a jumbled and slightly confused sea. NZL 7 sailed a fantastic first beat, perfecting their boat setup for the conditions and from then continued to sail away from the rest of the fleet. NZL 111 struggled for the first lap finding themselves back in the fleet, however were able to find a better set up for the later part of the race and recovered to take 2nd place just boat lengths ahead of NZL 104 taking 3rd.

33


DAY 3 Apart from the beautiful sunny conditions, day 3 was one of those days that everyone loves to hate at a regatta-sitting around the yacht club telling stories of past triumphs and heartaches, waiting for the breeze to show up! With a couple of almost goes, finally taking to the water at around 4pm in the afternoon, the fleet made its way to the much closer alternate course area up the outside of the boulder bank just to the north of the shipping lanes, to try and get a race in. With only 3-5 knots of breeze the course was quickly set and a start for race 7 was made.

34

NZL 111 managed to slowly wiggle away from the rest and established a significant gap on the fleet after the first lap, increasing this to 3-4 minutes at the top mark for the final time. NZL 7 was leading the rest of the pack however, almost as soon as the chasing pack rounded the top mark, the breeze started to drop out again from the bottom of the course, becalming first NZL 111, and then the whole fleet. Finding a groove that worked for them in testing conditions, slowly but surely NZL 7 started closing in on NZL 111, finally over taking them with less than 100m to the finish line to claim the win. NZL111 held on to take second place and for the first time in the regatta Hideo Tayama and Peter Bailey in NZL131 got on the podium with a well-deserved 3rd, proving that although he admits to finding sailing in the breeze harder these days, Hideo still has what it takes to make an FD go faster than most in light conditions.


NZL CHAMPIONSHIP

charge by NZL 72 on the home run to take 3rd place. Unfortunately for title contenders NZL 7, they failed to find the fast groove of the previous days and finished well back in the fleet. As happened on days 1 & 2, the sea breeze built through race 8 and had settled in at around 8-10knots for the start of race 9. After a solid start NZL 111 suffered an uncharacteristic gear failure and when they were able to return to racing, were looking at five transoms disappearing fast. Meanwhile NZL7 had found their fast setup again and were leading the fleet with ease. These vastly changing fortunes saw the title fight well and truly back on! Although there was no change at the front of the fleet and NZL 7 sailing away with a win, NZL 111 fought their way back through the fleet and although not quite catching the wily old foxes in NZL 131 (who picked up their second consecutive 2nd placing), managed to recover for a 3rd place.

DAY 4 The final day started with only one point separating NZL 111 in 1st and NZL 7 in 2nd place. Being two races behind schedule, there was a possible three races to be had to complete the regatta. With the previous day’s weather system moving on, and everyone electing to get on the water earlier than the other days, the fleet was greeted with a light building sea breeze. Race 8 started in 4-5knots with both NZL 104 and John Bailey and young Callum Foley-Logan in NZL 72 really taking it to the fleet by sailing a fantastic first beat to be well clear together at the first mark. However as the breeze filled, NZL 111 started making up for a slow start followed closely by NZL 131. Slowly but surely NZL111 was making their way through the fleet, to take a hard fought 1st and 2nd respectively, with NZL 104 holding off a spirited

On completion of race 9, well ahead of the forecast, a sharp shift in the breeze to the west signalled an impending rapid change on its way, Within 10 minutes the 8-10 knot sea breeze was replaced with a building 18-20 knot south westerly. Coupled with the change in conditions and crews feverishly remoding their boats, the race 10 start meant a 2nd discard was implemented. With changing fortunes in race 9, again the championship was back to a one point separation, with NZL 7 needing to finish ahead of NZL 111 to take the regatta on a count back. (A fact completely overlooked by the ‘numbers guy’ on NZL 111). By the time the race got underway, the breeze was a solid 20-22 knots and the fleet had been reduced to 4 boats, with 2 retiring for an early shower. NZL 7 got away to a great

start down by the pin and after tacking back to consolidate, had both NZL 111 and NZL 104 locked in under their hip. With a combination of height and speed they sailed away for a sizable lead at the top mark, waiting for NZL 111 to make their move in the challenging conditions. NZL 7 kept their spinnaker in its chute, and believing a 2nd place in the final race would win the regatta for them, so did NZL 111. This was followed by the rest of the fleet, apart from NZL 104 who popped their spinnaker for a wild spectacular ride down the second reach, against a left over northerly seaway. Towards the end of the reach, NZL 7 looked to change genoa holes for the upcoming beat, but was unable to secure the sheet in its new position in time for a mark rounding; giving NZL 111 all the chance they needed to secure the lead again. NZL 104 came in hard to sneak round in front of NZL 7 who was still unable to secure their sheet. Finally needing to hove to, to sort their issues, NZL 7 had dropped back behind NZL 72 also. Positions remained this way until the finish with NZL111 taking the win and defending their title. NZL104 definitely closed the gap to the boats ahead in all conditions and took a 2nd place in the final race and finished at 3rd overall. NZL 72 gained their first podium for the regatta and proved they have the goods to hold things together when the going gets tough. Unfortunately for NZL 7, one small mistake cost them the regatta, but it really was very close! While still on a steep learning curve in the back of the boat for seasoned FD campaigner (and Dad) Matt, who has been schooling him these past few years, young Finn Bismark is growing in strength, experience and skill with every passing season. It seems the question to be asked is not whether he is good enough to win his first NZ FD Nationals, but more a case of when is it going to happen….

AUSTRALIAN CHAMPIONSHIP REPORT OF THE 2018 AUSTRALIAN FD CHAMPIONSHIPS HELD 16-18TH FEBRUARY. A very enjoyable 2018 Australian FD Championship regatta was hosted by Twofold Bay Yacht Club at Eden on the far south cost of New South Wales. Eden is a small coastal town with a permanent population of 3000 people and a thriving muscle and oyster farming industry. It is a 6 hour drive south of Sydney and 6 hour drive north of Melbourne. Nine FDs entered the regatta, 4 from New South Wales, 4 from Victoria and one from New Zealand. Four heats were sailed over 2 days with the final day’s sailing being called off due to lack of wind. The sailing was excellent with good winds and large swells and the sailors were often accompanied by dolphins and seals.

The winners were Ed Cox and Peter Bevis is AUS 7 who were welcomed back into the fleet after a 2 year break. Second place getters were Ian McCrossin and James Cook sailing AUS 33 and third were Peter Bartels and Darren Hocking from Victoria in AUS 21. At the AGM held at the regatta, discussion centered around the New Zealand World Titles to be held next year and the transportation of boats. There was also discussion of ideas to halt the decline of the class in both countries and whether it would be possible to combine resources to develop a plan to raise the profile of the FD and attract more sailors to the class. The Twofold bay Yacht Club is run entirely by volunteers and the fantastic pre-regatta publicity, beautiful meals and great on-water organization meant that the Flying Dutchman fleet look forward to our next opportunity to sail at Eden again.

EUROFLYING CUP ALTEA MARCH 15th-1 7th 2018

40


The 18th edition of the Altea Euroflying Cup was held from 15th to 17th of march. 10 boats attended, four from Germany, one from Portugal and five from Spain. The first day the wind was strong and only one race was disputed. ESP-69 had to retired of the whole regatta after some problems. Also legendary GER-66 did not sail. GER-98 won followed by GER-13 and POR-77. Second day was more calm. After being in the sea without wind, two races took place with moderate winds. GER-98 won the first one and GER-12 won the second one. ESP-1, with the two sixteen year old “Juanes” , did a remarkable second and third position. That night Club Naútico de Altea offered a nice dinner in the club to all the sailors and their families.

Third day was wild. With strong wind from 16 to 22 knots, only six boats took part of the races. Markhoff and Stockmann confirmed their superiority winning the first two races, winning the Euroflying and going to the port. GER-12 won the last race with only four boats left. The final standing was the first two places for germans 98 and 12 and the third position for POR-77. After, ESP-1, ESP-66 and ESP-80. Thanks the german and portuguese flyers from coming to visit us to Spain and special thanks to the Club Naútico de Altea for the fantastic and warm organization. We hope to see you next year!

EURO CUP DUTCH CHAMPIONSHIP

MEDEMBLIK 29.06.–01.07.2018 Three weeks before the Worlds at Medemblik the Dutch Nationals were sailed at the same venue. In perfect sailing conditions - sunny with a fresh breeze - NED-26 Enno Kramer and Ard Geelkerken became the new Dutch Champions. GER-30 Alexander Antrecht and Michael Schiermann and NED-4 Klaas Tilstra and Pieter Zandstra completed the podium. Congratulations! The three day weekend saw a steadily sunny weather forecast with a strong breeze from a northeasterly direction. Friday started with 4 Bft. and picked up towards 5 Bft, with three nice races in. Saturday was a little more quiet with a steady 4 Bft. As you can see in the over-

all results this was the most successfull sailing day in terms of the whole fleet. Most teams managed to finish all of these races, making everybody feel like happy FD sailors. After a nice dinner at the club everybody was ready for the last day. However, this turned out to be the most challenging day of the whole series. The wind had quite unleashed itself and created big and long waves coming from the opposite side of Lake IJsselmeer. The day felt a bit like the famous story Ten Little Indians. The first race eight teams managed to cross the finishing line without too much damage. The next race five teams started, but only four managed to complete it, as the unfortunate British team GBR389 Ian Keely / John Matthews capsized and broke their mast. And then there were two. The two true heroic teams of the day were NED-18

Frank Nooijen / Sjors Riemslag and GER-177 Sacha Schroder / Alexander Schroder who enjoyed the weather so much they sailed the last race of the championship against each other. Well done those two boats! With the Worlds coming up many teams used the opportunity to see if their boat was all ready for the big event. With some good wind experience under everybody‘s belts and enough time to fix a mast here and there nothing could stop the competitors at the Dutch Nationals to sail an excellent World Championship. Nothing but themselves, of course. CASPAR SCHAAF
