FORMULA ONE NATIONALS - 2008

F1 Nationals 2008 – LDYC, VAAL DAM – 26-28 April 2008. 

After a concern about the new SAS membership requirements having an impact on numbers, a good number of entries were received due to a couple of stalwarts from other classes joining in the class, and late scrambles by members to participate – resulting in 18 entries (out of a fleet of 39). 

First day - 26th April - Three races were held in varying winds, from 4 to 6.5 knots, with gusts catching some off guard - with near broaches to London Calling & Not the Gnome.

Race 1 was won by Herbie Karolius on Sun Spirit off Chris Phillips on Radio Holland – 2nd and Sleigh Heynes helming Dingus – 3rd, after Geoff Teasedale on Floorworx Rigby 2 had to concede a penalty infringement with Chris Phillips on the finish line, letting Dingus take a third. 

Race 2 saw Geoff Teasedale take a 1st off Sun Spirit with Radio Holland third. 

Race 3 – P. Wiemann on My Girl picked a 1st off H. Karolius (Sun Spirit) and Radio Holland 3rd, after going out on a limb on the left side of the course, bringing My Girl through the fleet to first place! Well sailed! 

Day 2 saw light winds promising to freshen:

Race 4: 4-8 knots – Sun Spirit took another 1st of Dingus and Neil Armstrong on Bob to now strengthen their lead.

Race 5 : 4.5 – 5 knots – Dingus pulled off a 1st off Tielman Burger on Miss Isle 2nd and Sun Spirit 3rd

Things are hotting up as the fleet are now divided, with the top 6-7 vying for points, discards are starting to become crucial. 

Race 6 showed promise of some good wind after starting in 3.5 kts, going up to 8kts but hen ending on 3.5 kts!

Yet another winner to ruffle the results, this time it was Chris Duff on Jolly Roger, with P. Wiemann on My Girl - 2nd off Chris Phillips on Radio Holland. 

Race 7 – The wind was now dying but the bridge was determined to get races in – 4.8 kts – Neil Armstrong on Bob sails a superb race for 1st, followed by Dingus and Radio Holland. 

That ended Day 2 with H. Karolius 4 pts ahead of Dingus, with Radio Holland three points adrift. Day 3 now becomes crucial! 

Everyone sets of early for 09h00 start, though the promising breeze dissipated to no wind, swirling, promising but never really came through.

Started Race 8 at 11H15 , +- 5+ kts, died, with a 180 degree wind switch just after the windward mark, with Cazimozo (Steve Niccol) in the lead and the top three nowhere near!, had race blown and the regatta closed as per the previous day’s standings:

1st - Sun Spirit – Herbie Karolius, Franco Terreblanche, Sonica Slaghuis.

2nd – Dingus – Sleigh Heynes, Martin Smit, John Heynes

3rd - Radio Holland – Chris Phillips, Dale Hamman, Robert McCarthy 

with Neil Armstrong (Bob) and Chris Duff (Jolly Roger) in pursuit. 

The Cutts Machine Tools’ Spirit of Sailing trophy was awarded to Neil Armstrong on Bob for best improvement in the Nationals. 

Prize Sponsors – Thanks goes to Boating Specialists, Kyalami for sponsoring prizes, the F1 Association for the rest, with floating trophy’s by JSA Financial Services (1st) and Cutts Machine Tools (Spirit of Sailing). 

Thank you also to:

The Bridge: Austin Daly, Simon Farrington, Terrie Farrington (nee Pratt). 

Terrie also for organizing the kitchen together with Suzette and Theresa, AND doing the results & all, with Maryann Williams superb in looking after club facilities and keeping all happy. 

Thank you also to Daphne Kasselman for handling the Registration, regalia sales and all – a job well done as we know her! 

Thank you to all for a great regatta,

Martin Smit (Chairman – F1 Association)

Bridge Officers Report Formula One Nationals 2008

  

The event was hosted by LDYC on the Vaal Dam from 26th to 28th April  

Day one saw 3 races in light to variable winds – 4 to 6.5 knots with very keen competition with a different competitor winning each race. 

We managed 4 races on day 2 in light conditions from 3.5 to a maximum, briefly of 8 knots because of the conditions two races were shortened.   Again there were four different winners with the reigning champion Herbie Karolius on Sun Spirit being 4 points ahead after day 2.   Half of the fleet were in contention and all eyes were on day 3. 

The bridge scheduled a 09h.00 start for day three in the hope of getting 3 races in but the early breeze dissipated to nothing.  A race was started at 11h15 in a light breeze but had to be abandoned after a 180 degree switch and no further racing was possible. 

The final result was Herbie Karolius on Sun Spirit, Sleigh Haynes on Dingus and Chris Phillips on Radio Holland.     18 boats participated.

FORMULA ONE NATIONALS - 2007

NEW SAILS ORDER OF THE DAY

The Formula One Class had their nationals over the weekend 17th/ 18th March 2007 and finish the public holiday wed 21st.

The venue was Pennant Nine Yacht Club where the record entries of boats were able to moor for the weekend.
This year saw 17 boats entered which is more than half of the active part of the fleet and at least 5 boats boasting with brand new sails. The regatta was set with a lot of eager and determined faces and the event was wide open with lots of potential winners.

Saturday’s start was delayed with no wind and we were just about to call it a day when sufficient wind came through for three races to be sailed. Mean Streak sailed by Dirk Manten had no easy streak with Sun Spirit and Radio Holland No Compromise really giving them a tough time, however they were able to score two firsts with the other two boats swapping second place.

After a good breakfast on Sunday the boats headed out to be greeted with a fresh and building wind.
This wind freshened even more and the bridge kept us out for 5 races, witnessing some spectacular broaches, including one a 100m from the finish line. Sun Spirit skippered by Herbie Karolius had their stamp on the day with 4 firsts, though they had to luff Mean Streak way past the mark in one race. The rest of the fleet also saw tight racing and one mistake cost you dearly.

Well done to Not the Gnome with a new boat owner, sailing his first F1 nationals, coming from the back of the fleet pulling an 8th in the one race.

The fleet had Monday and Tuesday off and returned on Wednesday with only 2 points separating first place and a joint tie third place. The pressure was on the bridge to give us two races to enable a second discard. But we had used all our wind for the event, as each little puff came through a boat would sail past the bridge boat showing their speed and willingness to race. However Al Leenstra stuck to his guns and quiet rightly maintained that this was a national event, and he could not start us in such twitchy, poor conditions, we reached our cut off time and the 2007 nationals was in the bag.

All had a fun event and thank you to the sponsors Star Marine, Boating Specialists and all involved in the regatta.

Results:
1st Sun Spirit skippered by Herbie Karolius
2nd Mean Streak skippered by Dirk Manten
3rd Radio Holland No Compromise skippered by Chris Phillips
4th Floorworx Rigby 2 skippered by Geoff Teasdale
1st lady skipper – Free – Jenny Smith

New committee- Fees (subs)-national

Wow its march already, trust those that sailed this years round the island race had a good one. Is it not great to see the times between fellow F1 boats so close, well sailed!

 With out trying to blow my own trumpet, did you check out Saturdays tune up race results? No super, ultra light, expensive race machine winning on handicap, but a FORMULA ONE with old sails and a motor on the back. See our boats are not out dated, go and have fun, get on the water and sail. 

As per the AGM minutes, which I’m sure you will receive soon, we had a great turn out 13 or 14 boats represented. One of the best turnouts ever, THANK YOU.

I’m pleased to report that the meeting was very constructive with lots of new ideas for you committee to work with. 

The New committee is as follows chairman Richard Bremner, secretary Martin Smit, treasurer Steve Niccol, new member Neil Armstrong, new member Jim Burton.

I’m sure we can rely on your opinions as always, but do try to remember your committee has volunteered and also have busy lives out side of sailing. 

The First New change is our subs/class membership fees. This has been increased to R200. - What you say!!! Let me explain, our class has not raised this fee for some time, plus this years membership will not only entitle you (boat owner) to a years membership, but for those with 2 regular crew memberships too. i.e. 1 boat owner and 2 crew. The increase will also assist your committee to put into practice new ideas, like fun events and to enable all entrees in the nationals to get some sort of prize. Plus we will sponsor 3rd place medals if we do not make the requirements. Please remember that crew for the nationals must be SAS members if the do not belong to a yacht club a temp membership of R25 can be bought. 

Please check your emails for any updates as they follow. Remember Nationals is only a few days away. NOTE DATES are the weekend of 17/18th MARCH and the Wednesday 21st at PNYC with camping and moorings.

ENTER NOW it promises to be a good one 

See you there!

 Richard Bremner
