Changing Lanes By Bill Wagner and Rebecca Burg

A

nother day of good wind brought two more races and a shakeup in some of the standings in many of the 11 classes at Key West 2010, presented by Nautica. A northeast wind that started off at seven knots and built to 13 allowed organizers with Premiere Racing to remain on schedule for a 10-race regatta. Some of the professionally-crewed grand prix classes saw the overall lead change hands while other classes saw the opening day pace-setters strengthen their grip on first place. Joe Fly, an Italian entry skippered by Giovanni

Maspero posted a pair of fourths on Tuesday to take over the lead in Farr 40 class. Francesco Bruni is calling tactics on Joe Fly, which began the day in third and now leads fellow Italian boat Nerone by one point. Nerone, skippered by Massimo Mezzaroma of Punta Ala, had a terrific Tuesday with a first and a third to jump from sixth to second in the overall standings. Vasco Vascotto is tactician on Nerone, which was named Sperry Top-Sider Boat of the Day. Struntje Light, skippered by Wolfgang Schaefer of Germany, fell out of first place despite winning Race 3. Schaefer was remained optimistic despite falling to

Skipper John Edwards has a firm hand on the tiller and his eyes on what lies ahead as Rhumb Punch sails upwind on Tuesday. Sitting alongside Edwards is tactician and sonin-law Tom Weaver while Quantum professional Clarke McKinney is also in the cockpit adjusting the jib trim. Rhumb Punch, a Farr 30 from Solomons, MD, posted a pair of thirds on Tuesday to take over second place in PHRF 1 class.

third overall due to an 11th in Race 4. “Of course, we are very happy to be in the game. We came here to get some experience in the new boat and so far our boat speed has been very good,” said Schaefer, who took delivery of a Farr 40 formerly owned by Peter de Ridder a few days before the regatta. Crown Prince Frederik of Denmark had planned to compete in Farr 40 class at Key West 2010, but wound up having to attend the World Future Energy Summit in the United Arab Emirates. However, the Prince still entered his boat and has been following Continued on page 2.

the results very closely each day. He was no doubt thrilled to see that Nanoq won Race 3 on Tuesday with Anders Myralf on the helm and Volvo Ocean Race veteran Bouwe Bekking calling tactics. “We wish Frederik was here to enjoy this win with us, but we understand that he has to take care of his official work as prince,” Myralf said. Nanoq’s crew has not sailed together since the Farr 40 European Championship in Sardinia so that is why Prince Frederik felt it was important for the boat to race at Key West. Tuesday’s victory brought some positive reinforcement about Nanoq’s new rig setup. “We had a very good start, hit the first couple shifts and rounded the first mark just ahead of Joe Fly. We then had a very good downwind leg and were able to extend

MELGES 24 AND MELGES 32 John Kilroy and his team aboard Samba Pa Ti had a superb day on the water and vaulted from third to first in the Melges 32 class, largest of the regatta with 22 boats. Stu Bannatyne is calling tactics while fellow pro Morgan Reeser is trimming the main for Kilroy, who won Race 4 and placed fourth in Race 3 to move ahead of Monday leader Ramrod (Rod Jabin, Annapolis, MD.) by a point. “We had confidence in our boat speed based off of yesterday so today wanted to have good clean starts so we could get clear lanes,” Kilroy said. “We were seventh at the last mark in the first race and rallied to get a fourth. We got a great start in the second race and were able to just extend and extend. Stu did a great job on tactics today while Morgan and Sam Rogers did a great job of trimming.” This is only the fifth Melges 32 event for Kilroy, who has competed in Key West with a Farr 40 and a TP52 among other designs. The Malibu, CA resident loves the exciting sport-boat and said the competition in the class is intense.

The Danish entry Nanoq, foreground, controls the right hand side as a group of Farr 40s start a race on Tuesday. Above Nanoq and slightly ahead is Joe Fly, the Italian entry skippered by Giovanni Maspero. Helmsman Anders Myralf and Nanoq won Race 4, but Joe Fly posted a pair of fourths to take over first place overall.

“This fleet is so close that one small mistake can cost much more about positioning,” he said. “Today was less you 10 or 15 boats. It’s the outhouse or the penthouse shifty than yesterday, but it still wasn’t totally obvious and you just have to try to stay in between and hope to which side of the course was favored.” be there at the end,” he said.

KEY WEST 2010

Nerone has done quite well in three previous trips to Key West - placing fourth in 2008, seventh in 2007 and eighth in 2006. Two days into Key West 2010, presented by Nautica, the Italian entry appears poised to post its best result yet. Skipper Massimo Mezzaroma and crew hold second place in the 13-boat Farr 40 class after performing extremely well on Tuesday. Tactician Vasco Vascotto called the shifts well as Nerone won Race 4 and placed third in Race 3 to jump from sixth to second in the overall standings. That strong effort in one of the regatta's most competitive classes earned Nerone the Sperry Top-Sider Boat of the Day award. From left to right, Sperry Top-Sider Field Service Coordinator Monica Turnbull and Director of Marketing join Division 1 principal race officer Ken Legler in presenting the Boat of the Day trophy to Nerone boat captain Massimo Bortoletto.

Fauth said. Pugwash owner David Murphy looked quite content on Tuesday afternoon as he ate finger sandwiches and sipped green labeled beer aboard his Lyman-Morse 90foot motor yacht, berthed at the end of the Galleon docks. Murphy deserved to enjoy happy hour after opening Key West 2010 with a stellar line of 2-1-1-2. The New York resident is a newcomer to competitive sailboat racing who has enjoyed tremendous early success. Pugwash, a J/122 based in Newport, RI, has won four of the seven events it has entered since Murphy took delivery in June. North Sails professional Larry Leonard is calling tactics for Murphy, who is looking to add Key West to his impressive list of victories that includes Chester Race Week and the Edgartown Round the Island Race. “All the credit goes to the crew. Larry is the mastermind while our trimmers are terrific. I’m just kind of like Forrest Gump. I just focus on driving the boat,” Murphy said.

One of the more interesting and unique elements of the annual race week at Key West involves the International Team Competition for the Nautica Watches Trophy. Event director Peter Craig introduced the country versus country component to the regatta in 1997 after noticing a dramatic increase in foreign entries. “What was loosely modeled after the Admiral’s Cup in Cowes, England has become a Key West tradition,” Craig said. “We have found that the International Team Competition unites teams and crews who would not normally see each other on the race course.” The formula is simple with each participating country fielding a team comprised of boats in three separate one-design classes – Farr 40, Melges 32 and Melges 24. Italia 2, comprised of UKA UKA Racing (Melges 24), Mascalzone Latino (Farr 40) and Bitipi (Melges 32), captured the International Team Competition last year. The battle for bragging rights and the Nautica Watches Trophy figure to be intense again at Key West 2010 with several strong teams entered. Italy 1, which features a pair of class leaders in UKA UKA Racing and Joe Fly, holds first place in the International Team Competition with a low score of 38 points. Owner Lorenzo Santini has UKA UKA Racing in first place of the Melges 24 class while skipper Giovanni Maspero has helmed Joe Fly to first in Farr 40. Rounding out the team is Calvi Network, which Carlo Alberini has steered to fourth place in Melges 32. Italy 2 holds second in the standings with 51 points on the strength of a second place performance in Farr 40 by Nerone (Massimo Mezzaroma). Blu Moon (Franco Rossini) stands third in Melges 24 while Fantastika (Lanfranco Cirillo) complete the team. Scandinavia, which has all three of its boats holding either fifth or sixth place in their respective classes, stands third in the International Team Competition. There are a total of 27 foreign entries representing 13 different countries at Key West 2010, which has enabled Premiere Racing to field nine international teams.

New & Hot and where to spot it in Key West

Partner: Holmatro Marine Equipment Product: New Aluminum Extreme Winch Handle

Partner: MELGES Performance Sailboats Product: The All New Melges 20

After extensive use in the one design ‘Extreme 40’ class and testing by some of the best teams in the world, Holmatro is proud to introduce its Aluminum Extreme Winch Handle. The lightweight winch handle has a grab-bar along the lower half of the top surface which releases the locking mechanism. This next generation locking mechanism automatically retracts when inserting the winch handle eliminating the need to press the grab-bar. Because the handle is forged, not cast, it is stronger with much less weight than other metal winch handles. The handle is available in two sizes, eight inch and ten inch, and three grip types: single grip, double grip and power grip (pictured). All grips have hybrid composite bearings for maximum efficiency and performance. These winch handles will be available in the US later this spring but one can be seen, along with our new winches, during race week in the partner exhibit area.

The Melges 20 is a brand new sportboat from Melges Performance Sailboats. The boat will be featured at the Big Top (Key West Race Week Headquarters) near the Melges hospitality area. Take the Melges 20 for a test drive at the Galleon Marina. The Melges 32 is one of the fastest growing sportboats in the world. Newly ISAF approved, the Melges 32 is a fantastic boat. The Melges 24 has been the largest fleet in Key West Race Week for 16 years now, proving why this exciting to sail, easy to trailer and rig sportboat is the choice of many.

1637 signaled the birth of Barbadian rum distillation, heralded by the arrival of the first small-scale distilleries to the island. By mid-century, planters had settled on what would become the Mount Gay plantation, putting stills to use as early as 1667. 1703 marked the appearance of the oldest written evidence of regular distillation on the site. One of the keys to Mount Gay Rum’s success lies in its passion for the art of blending; a unique craftsmanship conserved and respected since 1703. More than one sailor has been lured to the unforgettable taste of Mount Gay Rum - for the sailors committed to excellence, winning the Boat of the Day Trophy represents a commitment to high standards. An engraved cask of Mount Gay’s premier 1703 rum awaits the winner of today’s racing.

4:30 – 6:00 PM

Spanish Castle to White Knight (video) An afternoon at the movies courtesy of Volvo Ocean Race Completing the Volvo Ocean Race is a supreme human achievement — only a fraction of the sailors that started from the ramparts of Alicante’s castle sailed all of the 37,000 miles to the finish in St. Petersburg. The handful that did have been through every emotion, their human story intertwined with the raw elements of nature and the extraordinary technology on which their survival depends. Grab some popcorn and a cold beer and take in the official highlights DVD charting the highs and lows of the incredible 2008-09 edition of the VOR, where the boats were literally pushed to breaking point.

Weather — Thursday Debrief and Friday Forecast (D-P) Commanders’ Weather Presented by B&G Here’s your last chance to get the “weather edge” as you prepare for the final day of racing. Join the Commanders’ Weather team to debrief on Thursday’s weather and learn what to look for on Friday. The informal session that will include questions and audience interaction.

five points above second place finisher, Tobiko, Tim Britton’s Corsair Sprint 33 trimaran (Peru, VT). “We didn’t miss a shift all day and kept good boat speed,” noted Tobiko tactician Johnathan Farrar. “We’re just loving Key West.”

PHRF 1 Stark Raving Mad IV, James Madden’s J/125 (Oyster Bay, NY), opened up his lead with two more bullets and added more points between them and John Edwards’ Farr 30, Rhumb Punch. Stark Raving Mad IV’s crew of friends is a blend of pros and amateurs who’ve been racing together for several years. Their starts were tricky, but they always seemed to recover and blast past the fleet. “We were having a hard time slowing the boat down!” tactician Gary Weisman said. “It was fun to sail the shifts upwind and we did well on the beats in general. The boats behind us mixed it up a bit.” Stark Raving Mad IV’s strong lead will give them some elbow room and the luxury to sail conservatively on Wednesday. Currently in third place is Bill Titus and his team on Act One (Newport, RI). In some tight sailing, Act One is tied on points with sistership Marinerscove, the entry from The Royal Cork Yacht Club. “The Irish boat is very well sailed,” said Act One helmsman Charlie Milligan. “It’s a brand new boat and we’re still learning it.” Talk about new; Act One is Hull No. 1 and Marinerscove is Hull No. 2.

PHRF 2 Bill Sweetser’s Rush, stole the show and placed first on Tuesday, finishing just two points above Bluto on corrected time. “We improved our boat speed in the second race,” said trimmer/mid-crew Greg Oczkowski about Rush’s 4-1 day. “Our tactician kept us in phase through the shifty conditions so we were dialed in by the afternoon.” The Rush team is happy to be at Race Week. “Anytime you’re in Key West, it’s definitely competitive racing,” Oczkowski concluded.



J/80 Little Feat made waves with a notable recovery from eighth place on Monday (7-7) to second place silver with two bullets on Tuesday. Their turnaround was attributed to learning from Monday’s mistakes and playing the right shifts without getting cornered. “It was one of those things where you had to go left, but you couldn’t bite off more than you can chew,” Jeff Johnstone explained.
