J22 Nationals 2017

Hi!

Well I am sure after a short week and the weekend all the competitors and helpers have recovered from what was an awesome Nationals at LDYC.

30 Skippers and crew from all over South Africa, some new to the class, others experts at what they do and all the others in-between experienced some amazing sailing. A special thanks to Ingrid who kept everyone else in the loop with updates and  pictures while we were on the water. For the full story see next month’s Sailing magazine.

The wind undoubtable could have been a “tad” stronger and the Racer Officer, Dave Rushton, would have found things far easier  if it had been steady! Dave and Crew’s additional challenge was a very competitive and enthusiastic fleet on the start line. His U flag and Black flag made a regular appearance over the 11 races in an attempt to get the show on the road and control the fleet. There were casualties, who unfortunately, ended up watching the race from afar. The results show how close the racing was, how things were turned upside down with just one race’s results and how any of the top J’s were in with a chance. There can be no doubt that the J22 is the most exciting  fleet to be part of!!

Off the water was just as enjoyable with LDYC making their wonderful facilities open to all, organising the on water requirements, catering and “liquid” refreshments over the regatta period. Many thanks to all those that helped over the regatta.

LDYC offered, as did other clubs, that TYC boats remain at the Vaal until the water is cleared at Hartbeespoort.  Watch for additional sailing for J’s over the next few months.

 

Please will those who took Regalia do your eft so that we can wrap the Nationals as soon as possible. If you have “misplaced” your invoice drop me an email and I will send the amount.

 

Please mark your deposit              REGALIA and your name.

The eft to  the                   SAJ22 Class Association.

The next regatta to schedule in your diary is August at the Vaal so use the next few weeks to do the repairs and TLC to your J22 before some more great racing.

Looking  forward to seeing you on the water.

J22 Nationals 2016

Hi! All

 

What a fantastic 2016 J22 Nationals regatta at WYAC!!

4 days of challenging winds for the race officer Dave Rushton and his team of Bridge crew, Mark layers and NSRI. Mornings with delayed starts because of no wind when later in the day 5 hectic races in strong and gusty winds. Ultimately 15 races completed with the usual closely contested race honours. The black flag made its appearance, this has become an expected occurrence with the J fleet. Unfortunately just 1 J extended the boundaries just a tad too much and spent the remainder of the race enjoying the Witbank dam scenery! 3 races saw J’s tie for a position, in the words of the Race Officer very unusual.

Witbank regatta’s always have to have at least one cold day when beanies are sold at a premium. Saturday evening the cold front arrived giving those tenting a disturbed night and awaking to a misty 6 degrees. The wind had abated so racing  was yet again delayed but the last 3 races to complete the maximum of 15 were completed by 15.00

A delicious sit down Prize Giving dinner followed that evening where the hospitality of WYAC was at its best.

 

Thanks to all who worked so hard to ensure a successful event and URIAGE who donated each competitor a goody bag of superb high protection suntan lotion and  thermal rehydration water. With the hours competitors spent in the elements over 4 days both products were the perfect  protection. Many thanks URIAGE!

 

For more info on the regatta and pictures see the next issue of the Sailing Magazine.

 

Don’t forget the VCA Junior Regatta 14th / 15th May  See attached.

 

The next big events are MSC in Durban in July and Northern Region Keelboat Regatta in August.
