Welcome... As we put this 2014 yearbook together, we are looking forward to a busy and exciting season, particularly with things generally improving – maybe we can all relax slightly and use our boats a bit more…? And some of us will definitely be healthier having trained for Ben’s cycle ride from Haslar to Portland in April. We are always looking to improve our service, and ashore at Portland we have a new bar/ bistro called ‘Harbour Lights’ (replacing ‘The Boat That Rocks’), and afloat at Haslar, the lightship is now under the command of Maria, with her new bar and

restaurant called ‘Trinity’s’; then at both Haslar and East Cowes, ‘Hardys’ and ‘The Lifeboat’ continue to flourish and offer excellence to their customers. Our home-grown yacht clubs are gaining momentum, and if you fancy a cruise in company to Royan (twinned with Gosport), please contact the Haslar Club. This yearbook not only has all the routine information on our marinas, but also has invaluable tips on how to swim round the Isle of Wight and then how to sail around the world in a Class 40 yacht. Thanking you as always for your custom, Richard Reddyhoff

Double helping! 2014 will see the start of the Ellen MacArthur Cancer Trust’s ambitious new three-year plan, to double the number of young people in recovery from cancer, that they take sailing.

From the Trust’s operational base in the Dean & Reddyhoff Marina, East Cowes, the team will endeavour to increase the number of young people sailing with them from 353 in 2013 (6.1% of all young people in the UK in recovery from cancer) – to 780 in 2016 (14.2%). Launched in 2003 the aim of the Ellen MacArthur Cancer Trust is to give young people in recovery from cancer the chance to rebuild their confidence through sailing. Over the past ten years the Trust has grown beyond every expectation in to a national charity, which works with every young person’s primary cancer care unit in the UK, taking young people aged between 8-24 years and who are in recovery from cancer, sailing. What makes the Ellen MacArthur Cancer Trust unique is after the initial four-day sailing trip, each young person is invited to get involved in a variety of different activities up to and beyond remission. Return to Sail: Residential activity weeks are undertaken at Bradwell, Essex, and Water Park, The Lake District, plus longer cruising trips and the chance for young people to take part in the J.P. Morgan Asset Management Round the Island Race.


Volunteering: The successful Graduate Volunteer Programme helps young people continue their own recovery with the Trust, whilst supporting first-timers. Beyond the Trust: The Trust can help open doors for young people to undertake exciting personal challenges and adventures; such as the Clipper Round the World Yacht Race and the Rolex Fastnet Race or to discover employment opportunities in the maritime industry or simply pursue sailing as a leisure activity, including gaining RYA certificates.

Rapid sales results. The best market price. Hassle free. No hidden costs. Regular communication. Total security & protection throughout. Everything cared for and completed.

Ancasta UK Offices

In order to achieve their impressive target of doubling the number of young people they work with, the Ellen MacArthur Cancer Trust will need your support more than ever before.

50,000 visits on-line per month

As the Trust does not receive government funding and does not make any charge to the young people or their families, they rely 100% on voluntary funding. There are many ways to support the Trust; with time, money or services.

The next time we saw Anna she was launching her Five Island Swim Challenge – for those who don’t know – this is what Anna does; she’s an endurance swimmer. The challenge was to raise funds for the Ellen MacArthur Cancer Trust, the Samaritans, Sail Africa and Toe in the Water, charities we are all aware of and well worth our support.

Anna Wardley Gosport’s own Crazy Mermaid We first met Anna three years ago when she popped into the Haslar Marina office looking for a space for her new kayak; she’d just won funding for it from the Community Chest on BBC Radio Solent and was over the moon. We only realised later that she was always in this buoyant, near top gear mode and her enthusiasm, coupled with some true Yorkshire grit, has made it possible for her to achieve goals few of us could even contemplate.

She announced her fundraising for the Ellen MacArthur Cancer Trust by taking a dip in East Cowes Marina in February 2013, when the average water temperature was at its lowest, before warming up with a slice of the bespoke cake from the Hampshire Cakery which depicted her swimming past the Needles.

We next met Anna at the PSP Southampton Boat Show in September 2013. We had offered her use of the Dean & Reddyhoff stand to host an auction to raise funds for her charities. The team arrived. We hadn’t met Paul Bunker before, BBC Radio Solent sports presenter and a great swimming mate of Anna’s. He played the crowd perfectly and had most of us in tears half the time. With the skies darkening over the Boat Show, the D&R stand was on fire! We were asked to cut the noise, as cheering and laughter filled the aisles and Anna’s auction raised over £5,500 for her three charities. The following week she went on to destroy the 60-mile Round the Isle of Wight swim in just 26 hours and 33 mins battling some serious tides in the process. Navitus Bay was proud to sponsor Anna on this challenge.

Anna had already swum the seven miles around Dragonera off Majorca in May 2012 closely followed by our very own Portsea in June, setting a record as the first person to cover the 13 miles without a wetsuit. Just over a year later in June 2013, she headed to Jersey to complete island number three – 41 miles in 11hrs 53 mins – then Anna got on with her day job of running her PR and event management company, Seagrass Communications. Last August she tackled island number four - Tiree, a beautiful, white-fringed island in the Inner Hebrides. Distance: 30 miles. Water temperature: 13 degrees. As nobody had attempted this swim before, it would be a serious test of tidal planning, night swimming and coping with the cold. However, Anna’s biggest fear was not the icy cold water, it was the stingers! Lion’s mane jellyfish enjoy bobbing about this area and as it got darker it was increasingly hard for Anna and her team to see where they were. As Anna swims in a one-piece she has no protection, other than lanolin, against stings that could render her unconscious.


Anna managed 20 of the 30 miles but was pulled out of the water at nightfall as the cold bit into her core and left her unable to breathe properly. Despite this setback, she was determined that it was still “game on” for her final island



A huge achievement which put both Anna and GosVegas firmly on the map. She has recently been awarded Inspirational Woman of the Year 2013 in the Johnston Press South Awards, well deserved and beautifully received. “I’m extremely grateful for all the support that Dean & Reddyhoff has given me over the last few years. As a long term supporter of my long distance swimming campaigns, they have helped me to raise in excess of £50,000 for charity. On behalf of my support team and all the charities that have benefited from our fundraising, I’d like to raise a huge thank you to the entire team at D&R, as without such generous support, my Five Island Swim Challenge would never have happened.” Anna Wardley, endurance swimmer For more information visit Anna Wardley is available to speak at events and corporate functions.

A day in the life of the Alex Thomson Racing team

Photo credit: Christophe Launay/Alex Thomson Racing

The Alex Thomson Racing Team have been based at Haslar Marina for many years and have been sponsored by HUGO BOSS since 2003. With our offices & boat berthed here, it makes for a great location for our busy team! The team consists of a technical boat team & a shore based team. The technical team all specialise in different areas on the boat ranging from rigging, sails, electronics, boat building, boat captain, operations manager & shore base manager. The shore based team include the Managing Director, Finance, Logistics & Events, Marketing & PR.

Dependant on the schedule & racing calendar the team can be split over various locations worldwide at any one time. Over the last year we completed a promotional tour which took part of the team and boat to Asia, South Africa, South America, South America & North America whilst the other part of the team & the race boat were focusing on the Vendee Globe and supporting Alex through the gruelling 3 month, solo round the world race in one piece! Alex finished in an amazing 3rd position, becoming the fastest Brit to sail around the world finishing in 80 days, 19hrs and 23 minutes! continues next page





Our logistics and event team had an eventful year planning the above, however not as busy as our sailing crew who notched up several thousands of nautical miles, met over 700 guests in 4 continents, whilst remaining to look impeccable in our HUGO BOSS branded team kit in all locations!

“Alex finished in an amazing 3rd position, becoming the fastest Brit to sail around the world finishing in 80 days, 19hrs and 23 minutes!” As part of our sponsorship deal, we are obliged to host a number of sailing days for HUGO BOSS, this could be anywhere in the world so at the start of the year we put our heads together with HUGO BOSS and plan the route for our tour including

other key events in the HUGO BOSS calendar. Our shore base manager then confirms the boat can visit these places due to depth of marinas and our 4.5metre draft! A marketing and events manager will liaise with the local markets to ensure the event runs smoothly to a detailed and timely plan and our logistics team will book all the travel related to this. Alex in the meantime, is busy either sailing to port with the crew or jetting there in between business meeting, design meetings, sponsor obligations, sail training and preparing for the upcoming races. After all, we are a sailing team and our focus is on taking part and winning races! All in all, its never a dull moment at Alex Thomson Racing and dedication, hard work and commitment makes us an ever expanding, global company with the desire to win races!

Global Ocean Race 2014

The 30,000-mile round-the-world Global Ocean Race 2014-15 is for Class40 boats with single-handed, double-handed and fullycrewed (4 crew) teams competing and will start in September 2014. The GOR was created as an affordable, accessible option for sailors who aspire to racing around the world but are precluded from the high-budget arena of other existing events. The GOR follows a classic circumnavigation route, taking the fleet through two tough Southern Ocean legs.

to the PSP Southampton Boat Show, the entire fleet will be berthed at Haslar Marina for safety checks and scrutineering by race officials. This will provide berth holders with the chance to see these exciting racing yachts at close quarters and meet the competing sailors. This is also a period when Gosport school children will visit the boats. GOR Stopovers are Cape Town, South Africa; Auckland, New Zealand; Punta del Este, Uruguay and Charleston, South Carolina, USA.

The start and finish of this, the third edition, of the GOR will be in the Solent with the start taking place at the PSP Southampton Boat Show on Sunday 21 September 2014 and finishing in Gunwharf Quays, Portsmouth Harbour in early May 2015.

About the yachts: In 2005 the idea of a new breed of offshore yachts was conceived - an affordable performance offshore mono-hull designed around a simple box rule. The concept was to use modern design-technology to limit the cost of an offshore racing class of yacht - the Class40 was born.

The Global Ocean Race is very proud to be based in Gosport with offices for the event at Haslar Marina. During the few weeks before heading round

Exotic materials such as carbon fibre are only allowed for the mast and boom; underwater appendages are limited in their number; keels must




be fixed not canting; metal materials are non-exotic and even the number of sails allowed aboard and their materials are strictly controlled. Today over 130 Class40 boats have been built and the Class40 Association arranges an enticing calendar of events throughout each year, ranging from inshore regattas to trans-oceanic races. A GOR40 is in fact a Class40 with additional Offshore Category 0 regulations and with a number of extra, safety-enhancing requirements.



The principle additions are extra watertight bulkheads and extra safety equipment plus each boat must pass a self-righting test from an upside down position. The GOR 2008-09 and the GOR 2011-12 proved the performance and reliability capabilities of these boats and today all Class40 builders offer a GOR40 version for potential GOR entrants. The GOR40 provides a highly capable and exciting platform for sailors to race competitively around the world on a budget that is affordable to individuals and sponsors alike. To be accepted as a GOR entry a boat must have a valid Class40 certificate and also adhere to the additional Category 0 and GOR rules – the boat will then be a GOR40 and permitted to start the race.
