Newsletter #1 - October 2014

The International Classes Regatta (ICR) is Royal Freshwater Bay Yacht Club's premier dinghy event.  This is a great leadup regatta for sailors who are competing the National Championships in Perth at the end of the year and also for sailors to experience sailing in larger fleet sizes.

The ICR is open to Optimists, O'pen BICs, 420's, Mirrors, Lasers, 505's, Contenders, 29ers, 49ers, 49erFX & Musto skiffs.

We will be running a separate Bronze Fleet programme open to all bronze fleet level Optimist and O'pen BIC sailors. There will be an AM session on both Saturday and Sunday for this fleet.

The Notice of Race and entries are now available - please see the Club website HERE to register online.

In 2013, the International Classes regatta saw 178 boats and 208 sailors competing. How many sailors will enter into the 2014 event?

If you are interested in volunteering, please let Jenn Suffield know as soon as possible!

For further information, please see the RFBYC website HERE or contact Jenn Suffield.

 Leading Richard and his Luna Jets team quarterfinals at Chicago Match Race

Quarter Final Hurdles at Chicago Match Race and Dutch Match Cup

It’s been a couple of tough weeks for Team Alpari FX on tour. We’ve managed to progress to the quarterfinals in both Chicago and Holland but unfortunately came up short on both occasions. 

In Chicago we met Mathieu Richard, in shifty and difficult conditions we put in a good performance but it didn’t fall our way. In Holland we progressed to the quarters with some solid heavy wind sailing, only to be outsailed by David Gilmour in very light conditions.

It’s been hard to put a finger on how we can get through this stage of the competition. In both cases we began to sail at a high level going into the quarterfinals, winning most of our races towards the end of the qualifying series. In the past this has always been a good measure of performance in the quarterfinal stage but it hasn’t gone our way so far this year. Our aim now is for the best possible finish to the year. We have a couple weeks before the Bermuda Gold Cup, an event we now have plenty of experience at!

On a positive note we are still in 5th place overall on the Alpari World Match Racing Tour, with plenty of points on offer at the Monsoon Cup we can still reach our aim of the podium in 2014!!! 

Thanks for the support.

With a bit of luck we may also see Black Betty, R2D2, Sue Sea,  Knot Dreaming, Impulse, Blondie and Dirty Deeds as well, all of whom are believed to be  possibilities, so fingers crossed. 

 The Notice of Race is now available in the YWA Offshore Handbook for 2014-15, so all of you who are sitting on the gunnel, batten down, sheet to it and get your entries in.  

 This years race has the makings of being one of the best coinciding with the 100th Anniversary of the Geraldton Yacht Club. As always for any assistance in getting your boat, crew and or entry ready please don’t hesitate to contact the club.


If you are planning on doing the race but are not in a position to put your entry form but know in advance that you  need the loan of a life raft, please let us know NOW!   Arrangements can be made to loan one to you if we have a request in from you early enough.  if you require a raft, please advise by what size and type you will require and we will do our best to source one for you
