ERIC DELEU The dialogue and the complicity among all countries and amongst FD sailors could be enhanced. The International Flying Dutchman Class Organization (IFDCO) is a community present in more than 20 countries around the world, with approximately 400 members. In my view, a healthy FD International class means that the structure of the class could be strong only if the network is strong enough. The first and most important networks being the IFDCO Executive Committee and the IFDCO General Committee.

I’m Belgian, French mother tongue although my father is Flemish. I speak fluent French, English and Italian and I understand “een beetje” Dutch. In 1989, I migrated to Italy “per amore”. My wife Alessandra is Neapolitan and our daughter Carolina is 21 years old. And yes, thanks to the mozzarella di bufala, pizza, spaghetti alle vongole, pastiera and pasticciotti, I gained some twenty kilos to crew on FD! Since 1993 I have been working in the Communication and Advocacy Department of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO, http://www.fao.org, the biggest UN specialized agency. I’m a sound engineer and, for the last 19 years I have been working on Media production (Radio, TV, podcast, multimedia and live webcasting operations), dealing with 194 countries in the 6 official languages of the United Nations system. My sailing experience I started sailing when I was seven years old, on “Optimist” in Bretagne (France). I also sailed on Caravelle, Trident 16, Vaurien, 420 and Hobie Cat. For many years I sailed just for fun, participating at small regattas during holidays. I fell in love with the Flying Dutchman in 2006,

6

when I met Francesco Vespasiani (ITA 4) on the Bracciano lake (Rome). I’m an IFDCO member since 2009. In 2012, I coordinated the design and development of the FD Italian class new website (http://www.sailfd.it) and since then, together with Luigi Macci, I’m the website Webmaster. If you are on Facebook, you may have noticed that I also do some promotion for the FD activities. About the FD activities I think we are all aware of the difficult time that sailing activities, in almost any dinghy class, are facing today. Somehow, I see it as an opportunity to reach out new FD sailors who, for different reasons, gave up sailing on other dinghies: Star, 470, Finn, Contender, Laser…, not only by focusing on the way we could improve the IFDCO communication and coordination but also by enhancing promotion, marketing and branding of the Flying Dutchman. Advertising is a form of communication, the soul of any human activity, and it starts with your smile!

I see the role of IFDCO President as the Coordinator of a small international community, namely the Executive Committee and the General Committee. And I see the General Committee as the leading force of another international community made of 20 national classes or so. Each national class is a community itself, each national class is another network. And in some countries, a national class is made of different regions (or zones). Sailing on the Flying Dutchman dinghy also means fellowship with others, sharing common attitudes, interests, and goals. The FD is not an easy boat to sail. It is a very technical boat to sail if you want to win a regatta and that‘s probably why there are still so many of us in love or fighting with her! I believe that most of us will agree that, to enjoy a regatta on FD, you need good wind (not too little, not too much), a nice body of water, some sun, and in the late afternoon, good drinks and good food... with fellow sailors. Enthusiasm, a positive approach, passion, good will, commitment, common sense are the key ingredients that each and all of us should bring on board. So... All hands on Deck! Thank you ERIC DELEU (CREW ON POL 1)


PETER VAN KOPPEN My name is Peter van Koppen. I‘m residing in Hilversum Netherlands close to the Loosdrecht Lake, the birth place of the FD. My very first contact with the FD was in 1966 on the Bodensee. We went sailing with 3 persons on the boat. I was only 8 years old. I was asked to hold the tiller for a short while...what a sensational feeling that was. Then four years later on a beautiful sunny day and a light wind I went on the trapeze on the Alpsee in a beautiful mahogany Bob Hoare. By then I was totally hooked to the FD. I bought a very old FD the original NED 16 and after having crewed here and there I got in touch with Guus Bierman ( owner of Contender sailcloth). I learned a lot from him especially trimming the boat. In 1979 we won the Dutch championship. My first...several were to follow.

I campaigned for the Olympics in 1984 but we just missed the qualification. In 1993 I started to sail with W.Langeslag for six consecutive years. Several more national titles were won. I was very lucky also to crew for Szabolcs Majthenyi, Hans-Peter Schwarz and even J.Bojsen-Møller. All very impressive helmsman. In 2006 I started to sail with K.Schäfers and we bought the famous Mol boat from the Hungarians. We sailed very much and became a good team. Then bad luck struck me as I got lots of pain in my hands from the sailing. Only years later it turned out to be a blood disease(hemochromatosis-suppletion of iron). We sold the boat and my amount of sailing regretfully minimised. I had a few more nice moment though: became German champion in 2014 with Kai (nice surprise) sailed a beautiful Worlds in Sydney and also in Scarlino. During these years I was commodore for about five years and since January 2015 am the Treasurer of the FD class. I think from history and experience that I can say that I know the spirit of the class and what FD sailors want. I believe very much that sailing an FD is still a great experience and will empower the class. I will do anything to support this in benefit of the class. PETER VAN KOPPEN

INTERNATIONAL GERMAN CHAMPIONSHIP


Diessen, Ammersee, Bavaria 30.05. – 02.06.2019 During the long Ascension Day weekend the Diessner Segelclub e.V. hosted the following sailing regattas at Diessen on Ammersee: “International German Championship for Flying Dutchman dinghies.” The Regatta took place parallel to the Diessen pottery market that was enjoyed by the sailors and accompanying persons as an attractive cultural supporting programme. For the sailors and the club itself the receding floodwaters proved to be no problem apart from a few wet feet. The fast FD dinghies had onlookers anticipating spectacular sailing scenes. 69 crews from 8 countries had registered to take part, including top-class sailors such as Peggy Bahr, Jan Borowski, Hans Peter Schwarz as well as Jörgen Bojsen Möller from Denmark as well as many others.

10

Until now, in its 60-year history, the FD was, and still is, above all one thing: a demanding, fast and modern regatta dinghy. Without disturbing the boat’s classic lines, new technical solutions have been continually developed for overall FD improvements, which also proved to be trend-setting when incorporated into other boat classes: from the window in the genoa, the continuous trapeze, the Y-sheet and the rake, right up to the carbon-Kevlar sandwich construction. In 1960 the Flying Dutchman replaced the Sharpie boat class at the Olympic Games where the FD remained an Olympic class until 1992. However, the loss of Olympic status did not signify the end of the boat class itself. Even today there are still large fleets of them, and – among other regions – also in Europe and North America. The event sets high standards for the condition of participants in many respects, in sailing terms, the burden of weak winds and the strains of the hot sun, the good food and the party – it was all very nice.


IDM GER

On Wednesday, for the purposes of measurement and verification, papers and boat equipment were checked. There was subsequently a barbecue dinner, to which the DSC kitchen served up over 1000 tasty pork sausages from local Diessen manufacture. On Thursday afternoon, with light south-easterly winds the first race was staged and due to the wind shifts it was quite a tactical challenge. The crew of Peggy & Torsten Bahr from Berlin were victorious, ahead of Jan Borowski & Andreas Berlin from Rostock, and Killian König & Johannes Brack from Hanover. The best DSC crew was Tim Wechsler & Sam Leitl in 15th place. The lake was becalmed on Friday so no races were staged. Saturday thus became the third race day and in the late afternoon with a light north-easterly the next race took place. The crew of Lüdke & Schäfers defeated that of Peggy & Torsten Bahr, both from Berlin, and the Netherlands team of Kramer & Zingerle.

During the subsequent Bavarian-themed evening the sailors were pampered with a cold-cuts buffet, pork roast and home made desserts from local production. A further highlight of the evening were two FD sailors as a guitar duo performing their own sailing songs which provided for a wonderfully impressive harbour atmosphere. In order to categorise the regatta as a German championship at least four races are required to take place and by Sunday two races were still lacking. Despite good forecasts for winds that day no races could be staged due to the calm, windless weather. Thus, categorisation as a championship was cancelled and the races were classed as a ranking list regatta. MARTIN ECKEL DIESSNER SEGELCLUB E. V.

SAIL FLYING DUTCHMAN IN PORTUGAL Flying Dutchman Class has a small fleet of five boats in Portugal, having however an intense activity of meetings for racing and training. The Portuguese fleet is based in the Algarve (southern part of Portugal) and use to have weekly training sessions. In the last years, there has been an increase of the fleet in number of boats and enthusiasm regarding the FD sailing practice and, apart from the 5 boats that are constantly sailing, there are also 3 old wooden boats that are currently not sailing, but they are on their way to being recovered. Three national regattas are organized annually, counting with the presence of at least 2 Spanish teams. Regarding its international activity, the Portuguese fleet has an annual participation in the EuroCup of Altea (Spain) and in the FD meeting in Cadiz (Spain), expecting to participate in the European Championship entries in a near future. The Portuguese FD Class Association is planning the organization of a new event, the Tavira FD Open. This race is scheduled to be held in August, in midsummer, allowing the sailors to enjoy the warmth of the Algarve and a nice beach time, ideal to spend a great family time and enjoy a vacation.

The Portuguese FD Class Association is also preparing a training center for FD in winter. The main goal of the FD Tavira Training Center is stimulate the exchange of sailing experiences. The FD Tavira Training Center project will be located in the facilities of the Clube Nautico de Tavira (venue of the 2002 FD worlds). Here we invite you to navigate side by side with other crews and acquire new knowledge, make new friends, negotiate second-hand nautical equipment, among others. Additionally, we offer you all the facilities that you need to come and train, including all the equipment required for the practice of sailing. The Clube Nautico de Tavira is located 10 minutes away from the training or regatta zone. Our regatta zone displays the ideal weather conditions for sailing all year round, with an evolutionary wind from 8 to 17 knots predominantly from the Southwest. The water temperature in the winter is around 17ºC and the air temperature is 12ºC. The sky is usually clean and the rainfall probability is very low, ranging up to 20% maximum. The Clube Nautico de Tavira offers to the sailors changing rooms, snack bar, free Wi-Fi, safe boat area, and parking for cars and trailers. Clube Nautico

de Tavira also displays buoys for the training sessions and courses, motor boats/ RIBs for coaches, classroom for presentations and theoretical discussions, etc. The Algarve enjoys more than 300 days of sunshine per year. Tavira is at 30Km (30min) from Faro Airport, where it is possible to get transfers at 15€/PAX. Alternatively you can also hire a car for 100€/week or 23€/day. Being low season, accommodation is very cheap, rounding 250€/week/2PAX or 35€/ night/2PAX with breakfast included. In the most typical restaurants, a full meal is around 10€, and you can enjoy the amazing Portuguese beer for 1€ in any sunny terrace. Come and visit us. You’re all invited to sail and have fun!!!

NEW ZEALAND WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP 13.–21.02.2019

FD WORLDCHAMPION 2019: HUN 70 SZABLOCS MAJTHÉNYI AND ANDRÁS DOMOKOS 21


Kai Schäfer´s Preliminary Report It was a spectacular World Championship in Nelson, New Zealand at the beginning of the year. Very challenging conditions with much wave action and a lot of wind, as well as some equally spectacular situations out on the water including several jury decisions that were hotly debated by sailors around the world.

taken completely by surprise by this change in the weather conditions. This unfortunately caused damage to many boat parts: several masts and even centreboards were broken. This quite chequered race was won by Australian Ed Cox at a formidable speed. In general, the Australians and also the New Zealanders exhibit favourable boat speed and excellent boat handling.

Since the top sailors in the FD class usually tend to be quite withholding about their experiences, we are therefore all-the-more pleased to be able to release here a preliminary report from Kai Schäfers, who, together with helmsman Kay-Uwe Lüdtke were ultimately set to become vice world champions ahead of NED 26 Enno Kramer and Ard Geelkerken. And it was no great surprise to see Szabolcs Majthényi and András Domokos become FD world champions for the 13th time. A truly exceptional performance!

The other races experienced moderate to fresh breezes of force 4 to 5. With a few exceptions the German teams began their races well. Rolf Albert, GER 213, was hit hard with a protest following a right of way penalty due to an irreversible DNE. Unfortunately, the score of GER 98, Shmuel Markhoff with Lars Stöckmann, did not count due to a false start in the last race. They would otherwise have finished the race in third place. Schucki (GER 98) and Lars however, demonstrated a consistently solid and powerful performance.

A special thanks to the New Zealand fleet for their great commitment, and especially to Dave Hislop and David Gibb.

For us (GER 88, Kay-Uwe Lüdtke/Kai Schäfers) it all began with a somewhat bumpy performance. We lost our rudder blade shortly before the start of the first race. Due to the strong wind (we love strong winds) we were able to make up for some of our deficit. In the second race bad luck was to remain with us to some small extent. A Spanish boat capsized shortly before the start, which forced an FD with an Italian crew to crash right into us. Thereafter we were following behind all the other entrants, but we soon, slowly found our stride and we were able to finish the day with a victory.

But firstly, here is Kai Schäfers’ preliminary report: All the teams appear to be very pleased today because it’s layday. Until now the World Championship has demonstrated its very windy aspect. For more than a week at the New Zeeland national championship the wind, the sea wind, was more in the region of 3-4 bft. As it became perhaps a little stronger it then attained gusts approaching force five. Two days before the championship and enhanced by this unusually warm summer, the wind turned into an above-average sea breeze of force 4 to 6, accompanied by a considerable sea state. On the first day of the championships, the first races coincided with the start of the northerly force 3 sea breeze. The wind then increased to force 6 only five minutes after the start of the first race. The teams were

22

On the third day everything progressed very well. A satisfactory start and in the lead at the windward marker. During the ‘following-wind’ leg HUN 70 overtook us with a superb downwind speed and unfortunately for us they did not let go of their lead. In the sixth race GER 98 was leading by 200 metres at the windward marker ahead of GER 88 and HUN 70. After the second lap we then took the lead and held onto it all the way to the finish. After all this, HUN 70 then just managed to attain second


FD WORLDS NEW ZEALAND

place after the second lap. Schucki und Lars’ considerably strong performance was unfortunately not honoured due to the BFD. All in all, the Hungarians displayed strength and confidence and remain clear favourites. The regatta circuit, as it was laid out, proved to be quite unusual for the Europeans. The boats begin by sailing the starting leg, followed by the subsequent downwinder, then up again to the downwind marker which is followed by the broad reach leg. After the broad reach jibe at the second marker the boats run to the finish line with spinnakers set. (Whoever understands all this without a sketch is really good – the editor). There was a fine barbecue yesterday evening at our house for all the German teams. Today there is a well-earned layday! From tomorrow the podium places will once again be defended or hotly contested. Sincere greetings from NZL GER 88 KAI SCHÄFERS

EUROCUP ALTEA 1 7.–19-.03.2019

The Euroflying Cup has gathered athletes from five European countries in Altea: Spain, Germany, Italy, Russia and Portugal. With a total of 19 boats have participated, of which 5 belong to the Club Náutico de Altea.

The committee has not had it easy either on this last day of race, the low wind and the continuous roles forced the organization to cancel the first race and finally ended the day with only one race completed.

It Is important to highlight the renewal of the Spanish fleet in boats, we have recently acquired four new boats, as in the incorporation of young people to the class, in this edition there has been four boats with crews under 20 years.

The Germans Thomas Schiffer and Thorsten Wenten acomplished the first position, followed by the Alteas Roberto Vila and his son Marco Vila. The third position has been won by the Germans Ernst Greten and Martin Nolte. The Trophy delivery was held at 17:00 hours in the facilities of the Club Náutico de Altea and was attended by the sailing member of the Altea CN José Rius.

The first two days of Thursday and Friday have been marked by the intense wind that has made the tests very hard for the fleet. Up to a total of 11 teams were removed on Thursday, and six on Friday for breaks and disadvantages due to harsh weather conditions. With three competitions the Alteans, Roberto Vila and his son Marco Vila led the classification except the last day. On Saturday dawn much quieter in the bay of Altea, the teams had time to fix the damage on their boats and the 19 boats went out into the water.

Although the Euroflying Cup is a classic date on the international Flying Dutchman Calendar, this year there have been many more European teams that have approached Altea to compete in this event. In September 2020 the CN Altea will host the class World Cup and many have wanted to try the race course and be measured in the bay. ENRIQUE EGEA MORENO ESP-66

ITALIAN CHAMPIONSHIP 7.–9.6.2019

After 7 races, the Vespasiani brothers, Nicola and Francesco, finished the Championship in great style, and with a net of 8 points, they are the winners of the Fd 2019 Italian National Championship Class that took place on days 7-8-9 June in Cesenatico. From a sailing point of view, three days were excellent and favorable: the summer temperatures and the right wind were appreciated by all sailors and their families, who were able to appreciate the warm hospitality of the organizing sailing club, the beach, and the city of Cesenatico. 30 teams from 6 countries participated in this championship. In addition to the Italian crews, there were three Hungarian, two Polish, one Croatian, one English, one Slovenian and one Swiss boat. On Friday three regattas took place with sunshine and strong breeze from East (Levante). Nicola and Francesco Vespasiani (ITA 4) won all the races. On Saturday, an excellent breeze inflated the sails for three more races, won by SUI 1 (Stephan Fels and Ulf Hugel), ITA 4, and HUN 4 (Zleger Janos and Czeizel Balasz). On Sunday the final race took place, with a lighter wind, sun and a good temperature, and with the title virtually assigned to ITA 4. ITA 10 (Roberto Cipriani and Rinaldo Rinaldi) won this last race.

The award ceremony took place in an atmosphere of joy and friendship between the crews and all those who contributed to the success of this event. Two rankings were produced: - One related to the Italian National Championship, opened to the Italian crews only, which saw first the Roman crew ITA 4 (Vespasiani brothers), second ITA10 (Cipriani-Rinaldi) and third ITA 50 (Silvestrini-Ciuccarelli). - The second ranking is the general one, extended to all participants to the Alto Adriatico Trophy (a classic competition that has been taking place for many years in these waters and is always achieving greater success). Here too, ITA 4 reached the top step of the podium, followed by HUN 4 crew (Zleger Janos and Czeizel Balasz), and third ITA 10 (Cipriani and Rinaldi). At the end of the event, a greeting and goodbye pasta party took place before the crews left. This had nothing to envy to the splendid saturday evening dinner organized by the Circolo Velico Cesenatico under the stars. Again the characteristics of the FD-class sailors emerged: competitive and correct in the water, cheerful and friendly on the ground.

REGATTA SAILING WITH FRIENDS Austrian Championship, Mattsee 21.–23.06.2019 With this motto one could summarise the ÖSTM (Austrian National Championship) at Mattsee Sailing Club: On the day prior to the regatta (Corpus Christi) the Austrian FD Class Organisation had invited teams to take part in training. Eight teams accepted the offer. Our trainer, the multiple champion Philipp Zingerle prepared himself very well for this heterogenous group and had some appropriate advice for every team in this sunny weather but unfortunately unstable wind. Thankfully, the thunderstorm did not arrive until the evening and we enjoyed a relaxed barbecue dinner in informal surroundings at the Mattsee Sailing Club by which time most of the other ÖSTM participants had already arrived. In a cosy atmosphere the day of training was discussed with the help of video analysis. Many thanks to Philipp for his contribution! During the following two days the wind stabilised, remaining fairly light, and the sailing club’s racing committee under Michael Müller was able to confidently implement six races; on the last day of the regatta, races were no longer possible, so there was then a suitable opportunity to honour the winners: Markus Pöllath and Ralph Aicher (GER 56) from Bavaria became international Austrian champions. In second place, albeit national champions were Jacob Holzinger and Paul Srienz (AUT 25) from the Union Yacht Club Traunsee (UYCT), who in the absence of the ‘enrolment champs’ Christoph Aichholzer and Philipp Zingerle, were thus able to prove that the next generation of FD sailors will be pushing to the top.

Third place was also awarded to a young up-and-coming crew: Johanna Beichl and Sami Leitl (GER 22) from Ammersee in Bavaria, proving in addition that mixed crews can also be at the cutting edge in FDs. As national vice-champions (and Salzburg regional champions) the hosts, Roland Leimgruber (10-times Corsair champion!) and Thomas Oswald (AUT 109) were pleased to see that in judging the national championship, third place was awarded to the experienced players Gerhard Ulrich and Manfred Zeissel (AUT 15) from Attersee. Also from an Austrian perspective it was very pleasing to see that further new blood within the class is assured with the young crew of Philipp Stampfl and Robert Treml from Linz in the promo-boat from the Austrian FD class association. The pair sailed in their first joint FD regatta and were very affectionately welcomed into the FD class. During the four days of the regatta all participants enjoyed the very sincere hospitality at Mattsee Sailing Club; in the most charming surroundings all the sailors were completely provided for. It was therefore agreed that next year too, a priority regatta will be held again at Mattsee Sailing Club.

SPANISH CHAMPIONSHIP COPA Y UASA 21.–23.06.2019

38


From the 21th to the 23 of June we disputed in Altea (Spain) the fourth edition of The Copa Yuasa with was also Spanish Championship. A total of 10 boats participated with 6 youths alongside.

The final classification made ESP-6, Ginés Romero and Alvaro Moreno winners, ESP-69 José Sánchez and Pepe Ruiz in second position and ESP-17, father and son Marco and Roberto Sevila in third position.

The first day was with light wind conditions (8 kts) and three races were disputed with the ESP-6 wining and ESP-69 being second on the three of them. The third position was more changing with ESP-66, ESP-17 and ESP81 in each race.

Big thanks to Yuasa Iberia for sponsoring again this regatta for the fourth consecutive year and to the Club Naútico de Altea for the fantastic organization in ground and specially in the sea.

The second day was very demanding with winds up to 20 knots. ESP-6 won again the two races that were held. The difficult conditions made some boats return to port so the third race planned was canceled. That night, Yuasa offered in the restaurant of the Club Náutico de Altea a fantastic dinner for all competitors. In Sunday the strong winds (18 kts) made possible to finish the two planned races with ESP-17 and ESP-69 winning both of them.

The regatta confirms the good momentum of the spanish fleet with more and newer boats, returnings of older flyers and new youths adding to the fleet, all looking forward to the World Championship of Altea 2020. Thanks Best Regards ENRIQUE EGEA MORENO

FD was very popular in Russia in 1957-1992. Nearly every club had FD crews racing. Boats were produced in Tallinn, St. Petersburg and Sochi and distributed between sailing clubs by the state. Overall nearly a thousand of boats were produced and a few dozen bought abroad. Up to ‌ Flying Dutchman boats participated in USSR championships in the golden age of the class. After 1992 due to removal of FD from the Olympic program and especially due to the change in ownership of sailing clubs and the boats after the collapse of Soviet Union, FDs were abandoned, and many boats were almost destroyed. That applies to the whole territory of the former Soviet Union; by 2000 only few cities were able to save some of their FD fleet plus some boats could be found in the garages by individual sailors, all of them mostly unrigged. In this article we want to describe current (2019) status of the FD fleet in the Russian Federation. This article does not pretend to be 100% accurate and may not report all the boats in Russia, only the ones which information was made available to us. Everyone knows, Russia is a big country. Extending across the entirety of Northern Asia and much of Eastern Europe, Russia spans eleven time zones and incorporates a wide range of environments. FD fleet is spread all across Russia from Moscow to Eastern Siberia which complicates logistics for joint regattas. However, sailors stay in touch and cooperate in maintaining the fleet.

Moscow

Moscow sailing takes place at the reservoirs in 20 km from the city. The first FDs arrived in Moscow after 1957 and the FD class became very popular by the middle of sixties. Up to 45 boats took part in Moscow competitions at this time. Those were wooden boats made in Tallinn and St. Petersburg. Later on, plastic double hull boats arrived form Sochi and a few boats were brought from other countries (Hein, Bianchi E Cecchi, Mader).

By the end of nineties only 2 or 3 boats remained rigged in Moscow. However, starting from 2004 the FD fleet began to grow steadily by means of old boats restoration and bringing new boats from abroad. In 2018 new ship yard “Jolly Wind� started FD manufacturing in Moscow and by 2019 two new boats were build. In 2019 16 boats are rigged and ready to race in Moscow. They are: 9 Maders, 2 Jolly wind, 2 made in Sochi, 1 Bogumil, 1 Hein and 1 made in St. Petersburg. There are also some unrigged hulls. In average around 10 official regattas take place in Moscow every season occurring nearly every second weekend. Once a year one of the regattas may take a place in another location. Moscow FD sailors are frequently participating in international competitions. There are two promotion boats owned by the association in Moscow and used to attract new sailors and there are two more private boats which can be made available for the competitors from other cities. Association welcomes racers from other cities and countries wishing to take part in Moscow competitions. The most prominent regattas are Open Moscow Region Championship (20-21 July) and Championship of Moscow (3-4 and 10-11 of August). Visitors can be provided with boats and accommodation.

47


Kaluga

Kaluga is a historical town in 150 km west from Moscow. 2 made in Sochi FD sail on the river Oka with local sailing school.

Saint Petersburg

FD boats are kept at the sailing club of Sestroretsk, suburban town of St. Petersburg, located at the legendary lake Razliv, where Lenin used to hide in the straw hut before revolution. There are seven boats in the club: i.e. two boats made in St. Petersburg in 1968 and 1972 and five boats made in Sochi in 1982, 1983, 1985, 1987 and 1990. There are a couple of regattas which take place in this location - Navy day regatta and Lake Razliv Championship.

48

Primorsk

Town Primorsk is located on the shore of Finish bay in 100 km from St. Petersburg near the Finish border. Two FDs available in the sailing club “Nord West�: Hein made in seventies with the sail no. RUS 71 and Mader made in 1990 with the sail no. RUS 7. There is a plan to organize the Leningrad Region Championship in July with three boats expected at the start.


RUS

Snezhinsk

Town Snezhinsk is located at the Ural Mountains in 105 km from the Ekaterinburg, 125 km from Chelyabinsk and 1500 km from Moscow. Sailing club “Tornado” as well as the town itself was established nearly 60 years ago at the picturesque lake. Two first FDs arrived there in 1972-1974, those were double hull boats with sail numbers 3 and 668 St. built in S-Petersburg. Two more 1½ hull boats arrived in 1978 with the sail numbers 218 and 219 and later one more with the sail number 494.

By the year of 2011 only 4 boats survived with different state of hull and rigging. In 2011-2018 boats „669“, „219“ undertook major restoration and „494“ had some cosmetic repair, one more boat from Ekaterinburg was restored from ruins. Four or five boats are expected to be on the water in 2019, and one more under restoration. All hulls are wooden with almost all rigging wooden as well self-made by the class drawings rules.

49


Tomsk

Tomsk is a big historical Siberian town located nearly 3000 km from Moscow. Sailing club is on the river Tom’ within limits of the adjusted town Seversk. Declining FD fleet consists of five boats, with three in reasonable condition and five more hulls unrigged.

Zhelezhnogorsk

Town Zhelezhnogorsk is placed in the middle of Eurasia in 25 km from Krasnoyarsk, 500 km from Tomsk and 3500 km from Moscow. Sailing club is located at the town lake within city limits. Boats from Zhelezhnogorsk, Krasnoyarsk and Tomsk practice there. In the year of 2019 8 FDs are going to race there - 4 Maders, 3 in St. Petersburg boats and 1 produced in Sochi. Every year there are from 4 to 5 regattas take place in Zhelezhnogorsk and one more in Krasnoyarsk.

EUROCUP

KIEL WEEK GERMANY 20.–25.06.2019

Glorious, sunny weather in Kiel. 4 days of sunshine, blue skies, an easterly wind between 2 to 4 bft, and 21 FDs at the start. These were the overall conditions for a classic event among FD regattas. Last year, while we still spent time queueing to register, in contrast everything ran smoothly this time. Saturday was the first day of sailing, although it began with some delay because the sea breeze still needed to build itself up. With a constant strength of 6 to 9 knots – something which just cannot be experienced on an inland lake – 3 races took place successfully. On Sunday and Monday we had very good winds that enabled us to use the trapeze and we had three wonderful races on each of these two days. On the final day, and again with winds of force 2 to 3 we were ready to stage two more races. All 11 races were very successfully managed. Despite some good efforts, no-one was able to consistently show Szabolcs Majthényi

and András Domokso (HUN 70) their limits. It is a pleasing frustration to observe them sailing along the downwind legs of the circuit, while they run rings around the others. Accordingly, they won Kiel Week with 11 first places! Jiri Hruby and Roman Houdek (CZ 21) finished in second place only just ahead of Kai Schäfers and Andreas Happich, who had received a BFD and thus probably squandered their chance of a better placement. Since at least twenty entrants are required in Kiel in each class, we should make sure that we maintain the series for FDs. Better sailing in Germany will perhaps only be (next year) at Warnemünde, when a westerly, or better still, a north-westerly wind will be blowing there. UWE BERDTHAUER AND UWE BANGERT – GER 84

I F D C O Y O U T H G R A N T YOUTH GRANT EUROPEAN Championship We on the General Committee recognize just how important it is for the classes future to encourage young people to start sailing the FD and so we must do everything we can must to support them, especially in attending our major championships, where the cost of entry, travel and accommodation often can be prohibitively expensive.
