results day1

 

Eighteen boats are competing this week in the European Championship with skiffs coming from six countries and some well known names from the Southern Hemisphere.

The racing is over five full-on days with testing conditions likely to leave the No.1 rigs in their bags all week. The fleet are sailing for the first time from Circolo Vela Arco, still in the windy north end of the lake.

Day one saw a clean-sweep for the New Zealand team on Yamaha, with Jarrod Simpson's GBR 47 in second place. Behind the leading pair are a trio of Australian teams.

Results and write-ups at the end of each day can be found at the UK 18ft Skiff Grand Prix Facebook page and on the Circolo Vela Arco website.

COMINCIA OGGI L'EUROCUP 2017 18FT SKIFF

In una giornata soleggiata con modesto vento le prestanti imbarcazioni ad alta velocità sono uscite sulle acque gardesane per testare il campo di prova che da domani sarà teatro dell'EuroCup 2017 in scena al Circolo Vela Arco. L'organizzazione arcense, con il supporto della Fiv, è riuscita ad allestire una settimana di pura adrenalina. Monoscafi leggeri con abbondante superficie velica per sfidare l'Ora gardesana. Un mix di tecnologia e adrenalina, che necessita di equipaggi preparati ed affiatati perché il minimo errore può costare metri, secondi e in definitiva, la vittoria. Equipaggi pronti al via. Da domani sarà tutto uno show. Diciotto le imbarcazioni presenti provenienti da tutto il mondo con un'alta partecipazione di inglesi australiani e neozelandesi.

"Heads or Tails" - rig decisions for the final day pay off

The final day of the European 18 foot skiff Grand Prix at Sandbanks saw a split in rig choices as some teams opted to rig for the dropping breeze forecast while others rigged for the stronger gusts. Ultimately, there was a slight upwind advantage with the smaller rigs however the huge big rig sail plan allowed for heavier teams to sail deeper downwind.

The fight for first was between team Pica and team Be Light. Both teams pushed each other hard however Pica had the best score sheet with a 1,5,1 securing them the event win with Be Light in second. The race for the final podium spot was hotly contested between Chameleon I and Original Chia. Experience in overpowered big rig conditions paid ultimately with the Danes holding off a strong charge from Chameleon I to secure third.

The event has also been a great opportunity for newcomers to the class two of which added the following. "Fergus Kelley and Samuel Curtis would like to thank and highly recommend every sailor to try an 18ft skiff at some point in their sailing careers. Great racing and fantastic socials. Looking forward to coming along again".

The UK 18 foot skiff class is very lucky to be able to hold an event from Sandbanks beach and ultimately its thanks to both the Watersport's Academy in Poole for providing the venue and Parkstone Yacht Club for providing all of the on water event management. The UK class would also like to thank title sponsors Chameleon I and support sponsors VRsport.tv, Zhik, C-Tech and English Braids.
