Back on the Docks

Artemis XIV – Kristian Neergaard (NOR57) commented “This is my first time racing in Porto Santo Stefano and I truly enjoyed it: it is a challenging course, shifty and technical”.

John B - Gavin McKinney (BAH19) stated “First time for me in Porto Santo Stefano. The breeze was up with flat water. It’s the crew that makes the boat go fast and if I listen to my crew then we are OK! In both races we played the shifts well and we did what we needed to do with minimal communication. I am very pleased, today was a good day. Let’s see what tomorrow holds”.

Kaspar Stubenrauch, President of the International 5.5 Metre Class Association, commented on Sinewave’s victory in race 2: “The fact that a relatively old boat won the race is unique and proves how close the competition is in this class, despite the age differences of the yachts.  Sinewave is an Evolution boat and Muller is a successful Dragon sailor who joined 5.5m class only one year ago. This is a remarkable result and proves that 5.5m offers a truly level playing field”.

Results Overall:

1 - Artemis XIV – Kristian Neergaard (NOR57) (2-2/4pt)

2 - John B - Gavin McKinney (BAH19) (3-3/6pt))

3- Sinewave – Thomas Muller (GER82) (8-1/9pt)

The weather forecast for tomorrow Wednesday 24 September calls for violent thunderstorms starting this evening and stormy conditions tomorrow with southeasterly winds at 20-22 knots.

Christian et le Trophée perpétuel « Christian Hauvette » – demi-coque de son dernier Stradivarius

Notre classe commémore chaque année la disparition de Christian Hauvette, ardent passionné de 5.5, en concourant pour le Trophée Christian Hauvette.

Ce Trophée est couru à l’occasion des courses de la Coupe de Cornouailles, organisées tous les ans au mois d’août par le Yacht Club de l’Odet. L’édition 2014 se tiendra ainsi les 16 et 17 août prochain, avis de course à paraître bientôt sur le site de l’YCO. Christian naviguait sur les 5.5 les plus modernes sans se départir d’intérêt pour la beauté originelle des classiques… Cependant, à ce stade cette dernière catégorie est la seule représentée sur le Trophée: les 3 précédentes éditions ont vu la victoire de Nirvana – FRA 46, Korrigan – FRA 19 et Carabella – ITA 73.

Qui prendra le relais? Korrigan – FRA 19, Bagheera – FRA 43, Nirvana – FRA 46, Joker – FRA 50 et Favorita IV – FRA 54 ont déjà confirmé leur participation…
