VOLVO RS Feva GP at Yorkshire Dales SC


Yorkshire Dales Sailing Club played host to 20 teams for the Volvo RS Feva Grand Prix. 

 

Saturday's conditions were not quite up to the Yorkshire Dales SC reputation with light fickle conditions but with an improving forecast throughout the day. Conditions for Sunday, however, looked like it would be touch and go for any sailing so it was agreed to run 4 of the 6 races on Saturday. 

 

Saturday tested the teams to the full with light, shifty winds. Local Yorkshire Dales SC sailor Henry Rastrick with crew Rupert Jameson from Hayling Island Sailing Club lead throughout to take race 1, Tom Storey and Ollie Kent from Yorkshire Dales SC came in 2nd with Ewan Wilson Wormit Boating Club and Teddy Ferguson Windermere School in 3rd. 

 

A quick break for lunch and a pause in racing to allow conditions to build a touch and back out for races 2,3 and 4 

 

Sian Talbot and Elouise Clapson McBride Leigh and Lowton Sailing Club sailed a faultless race to take a very comfortable win with Henry Jameson from Hayling Island Sailing Club and Issy Spurway  from Bowmoor Sailing Club in 2nd and Dylan McPherson and Dylan Collingbourne from Burnham Squiddies in 3rd 

 

The 3rd race saw an increase in breeze and a change at the top with Storey and Kent taking the win Jamie Rastrick Yorkshire Dales SC and Madeline Bristow Leigh and Lowton SC in 2nd and brothers Kevin and Eddie Farrell from Llandudno SC came over the line in 3rd.

 

Last race of the day and it was Ewan Wilson and Teddy Ferguson over the line in first and a tight battle followed with Rastrick and Jameson in 2nd and Sian and Elouise in 3rd.

 

Sunday delivered the conditions that Yorkshire Dales Sailing Club is so famous for, strong wind blowing straight down the reservoir allowing the race officer to set a long course directly in front of the clubhouse giving spectators a perfect view of the action. 

 

Tom Storey and Ollie Kents downwind speed allowed them to pull away from the fleet to take race 5 with Henry Jameson and Issy Spurway left in the wake to take 2nd and Ewan Wilson and Teddy Ferguson in 3rd place. 

 

The final race of the day saw Henry and Issy lead the race throughout to take the win, Tom and Ollie came in 2nd and the Dylan's came in 3rd. 

 

Overall winners of the weekend went to Tom and Ollie with Henry Rastrick and Rupert Jameson in 2nd and Henry Jameson and Issy Spurway coming in 3rd. First Girls went to Sian Talbot and Elouise Clapson McBride and a special recognition prize for endeavour awarded to Fin Campbell and Sam Briggs from Norwich School 

 

Class Chairman Jon Webster thanked Yorkshire Dales Sailing Club team, Race officer Keith Escritt and his safety team along with the ladies in the Galley. Thanks also went to all the RS Feva families who travelled to the event and made it such a great weekend for all. 

 

The UK RS Feva Class would thank our class Sponsors Volvo for their continued support. 

 

Next event is the PA Consulting RS Feva National Championships at Royal Torbay YC.

Another Fantastic Northern Feva Open Training Weekend


Another great training session was had by all the sailors who braved the icy and muddy conditions at Beaver SC to take part in the third of the northern Feva open training events this winter.

 

Top coach Dave Hivey’s focus this weekend was on communication, attitude in breeze, maintaining boat speed through tacks and jibes and awareness of other boats tactics during racing.

 

Conditions were slightly lighter than expected on Saturday so the sailors first session focused on maintaining boat speed, tacking and jibing in light airs and mark rounding.  Dave also looked to catch some sailors out by repositioning marks between races, which led to a few red faces!!!

 

After lunch the sailors were given a further debrief and were introduced to one of his new training techniques (Donald Trump racing), which focused on maintaining awareness and control of other boats tactics during racing. Every team had to play the part of Donald, which resulted in a lot of fun and amusement.

 

The day ended with some short racing pulling all the key focus areas together.

 

Wind guru’s Sunday forecast was bang on as was the rain and sleet, but the sailors were undeterred and were soon rigged and ready. Dave did not waste any time getting them all on the water before it got too wild. All the sailors clearly got a lot out of the full on session and Dave appeared impressed by the level of boat handling on display, even though everyone appeared rather cold and wet by the end of it.

 

Given the conditions and drop in temperatures after lunch, the majority decision was to get out of all the cold wet sailing gear and have a fitness session.

 

Another great training weekend was had by all and thanks goes to Beaver sailing club for running the galley both days and making everyone feel so welcome.

 

If you are interested in sailing feva’s (The RYA pathway double hander), training or want any advice please do hesitate to contact Cathy or Dave Rastrick – RS Feva Association Representatives North cathyrastrick@gmail.com.

Northern Feva Open Training Event Leigh and Lowton 28th -29th January


Northern Feva Open Training
 
 
A fantastic time was had at Leigh and Lowton Sailing Club by the 18 sailors who took to part in the Northern Feva open training this weekend.

The weekend focus was starting techniques and top coach Dave Hivey did not waste any time setting out his expectations and goals for the weekend. Following a detailed briefing first thing the sailors were put through their paces on the water and soon found out that Dave was clearly of the view that there was room for improvement on both starting techniques and downwind tactics.
 
After lunch the sailors were given a further detailed debrief by Dave on downwind tactics and had lots of short races targeted at starting and boat handling skills in light and shifty conditions.  A lot of fun and laughter was had by all with Dave only having to occasionally raise his voice in frustration!!
 
The fun and laughter continued into the evening with a number of the sailors taking part in probably one of the longest ever game of Killer Darts on record.
 
Sunday morning soon came around and we had to break thick ice on boat covers and the whole lake with the use of the Ribs!!  The wind finally arrived by midday and the sailors were all keen to get on the water after an early lunch for a further session of short races focusing on communication, team work (whilst sailing backwards) and starting techniques.


A great weekend of sailing was had by all and everyone appeared to have thoroughly enjoyed it and benefited from the session, even if it was a little cold!  Looking forward to the next training weekend on 11 & 12 February at Beaver sailing club.

Super Weekend for the South East Open Training at Queen Mary SC


It was a fantastic weekend of training for South East Fevas at Queen Mary SC. A total of 10 boats and their intrepid sailors braved the icy conditions to take part.

 

A big thank you to our coach Chris Taylor who took time away from his busy international sailing commitments to be with us and to help our young sailors improve their racing skills.

 

Despite the light wind conditions and sub zero temperatures, sailors had highly productive morning and afternoon sessions on the water on Saturday and also managed to get out on the water on Sunday.

 

Sailors and parents very much enjoyed Chris' talk about his personal journey and pathway from Fevas to the America's Cup Academy Team. It was a great inspiration to all. 

 

Thanks to all sailors for their participation and enthusiasm over the weekend and we very much look forward to seeing as many of you as possible at the next two South East Feva Open Training events on 25/26 February at Queen Mary and 1/2 April at Whistable Sailing Club with the very experienced and highly regarded Feva coach, Flynn Davies. 

 

Warmest regards,

Lennon Racewear RS Feva and RS 200 Winter Championships


Lennon Racewear RS 200 and RS Feva Winter Championships 2016 Weymouth and Portland Sailing Academy

 

The Lennon Racewear RS 200 and RS Feva Winter Championships at Weymouth and Portland National Sailing Academy was a first combined event of the classes for a few years. A huge spread of ability from the younger newbie Feva sailors all the way to British Olympic sailing team members in the RS 200 fleet, all competing for the Winter Championship titles. 

 

Saturday was a blustery and progressively cold day for all. The RS 200 fleet started proceedings and after 1 general forcing the U flag to be deployed, it was Ben Saxton and Izzy Hamilton from  Royal Thames YC who took the win. Ben Palmer and Amy Seabright from Parkstone YC in 2nd and Ed Whitehead and Georgie Vickers from Hayling Island Sailing Club in 3rd. Andy Shaw and Pippa Horne being the only ones to be caught by the U Flag.

 

The RS Feva fleet saw Dylan McPherson and Dylan Collingbourne from Burnham SC put their mark firmly on the fleet with a first, second was Tom Storey and Oliver Kent from Yorkshire Dales SC and third Harrison and Fergus Pye from Draycote Sailing Club.  

 

Race 2 in the RS200s and this time Ed Whitehead and Georgie Vickers took the win, Ben Saxton and Izzy Hamilton 2nd and Ben Palmer and Amy Seabright in 3rd. 

 

This time it was the RS Feva fleet being a little premature forcing a general recall and that U flag appearing again! Tom Storey and Oliver Kent take the win. The 2 Dylan's from Burnham came in 2nd with the Pye brothers banking anther 3rd. 

 

Race 3 and all now really feeling the cold. Both fleets behaving at the start. It was Ben Saxton and Izzy Hamilton who finished the day with a first placing them at the top of the leader board, Ed Whitehead and Georgie Vickers in 2nd and Andy Shaw and Pippa Horn making up for their U flag disqualification finishing the day in 3rd. 

 

The Fevas saw Pierce Harris and Alfie Cogger from Windermere School finish on a high after they too suffered the U flag disqualification in race 2 with a race win, 2nd brothers Alexander and Bertie Ratsey from Royal Western YC and 3rd Dylan McPherson and Dylan Collingbourne. 

 

 

Sundays forecast 14-20 knots and not as cold. RS200s had a clean start and it was Ben Saxton and Izzy Hamilton leading the fleet over the finish line. Andy Shaw and Pippa Horn from Itchenor SC came in 2nd and Ian and Chloe Martin in 3rd. 

 

The Fevas race three and the 2 Dylan's add another 1st to their score line, Pierce Harris and Alfie Cogger take 2nd and William Caiger and Caitlin Morley from Sevenoaks School and Burnham SC in 3rd. 

 

RS200 and it was a new winner with Andy Shaw and Pippa Horn taking the win, Ben Saxton and Izzy Hamilton in 2nd place and Ben Palmer and Amy Seabright in 3rd. 

The final race of the day and both fleets a little too eager to get the day done! General recalls and that U flag came out for its final airing! 

 

RS 200 and Ben Saxton and Izzy Hamilton added another 1st to their score line to take the RS200 Winter Championships title, Andy Shaw and Pippa Horn came in 2nd and Ed Whitehead and Karen Baker came in 3rd.

 

Rather appropriate for the weekend we saw Lennon Racewear Youth Ambassadors Alexander and Bertie Ratsey take the final race win, Anne Marie Ratnage and Alice Parker from Sevenoaks School in 2nd and the Pye Brothers in 3rd. 

 

Congratulations to Dylan McPherson and Dylan Collingbourne who took the RS Feva Winter Championships title and Ben Saxton and Izzy Hamilton who take the first RS 200 Winter Championships title. 

 

Lennon Racewear as title Sponsors very generously provided vouchers for the top 6 RS Feva teams and top 3 RS 200 teams as well as some Bibs for various prize categories. Lennon Racewear also provided sailors with test kit to try before you buy and the kit seems to be sitting firmly at the top of the Christmas list now with positive feedback from those sailors who tested it. Sailors said

 

 " the kit is amazing, I launched and when I jumped in I simply brushed the water off the suit, I was very warm" 

 

"the kit looks really cool and fits really well, I really like the fluffy inside" 

 

"The kit is really warm and very comfortable"

 

Congratulations to all sailors who took part 

 

RS 200 fleet 

 

1st All Ladies team- Joanna Tribe and Nicky Johnson 

1st Junior Team- Chay Taylor and Niamh Davies 

 

RS Feva Fleet where awarded prizes by fellow Winter Championships competitor Ben Saxton.

This event combination with the RS 200 Class proved to be a big success and one the RS Feva Class would be delighted to host again. 

 

RS Feva Class Chairman Jon Webster thanked the Principal Race officer James Gollop for another superb weekend of racing, the safety team and all the volunteers who endured a cold blustery weekend on and off the water supporting the event and finally Lennon Racewear for their support to this great event.

Burnham Squiddies Winter Training at Burnham Sailing Club


by Jonathan Lewis on 23 Nov19-20 November 2016

Burnham Squiddies Winter training © Jonathan Lewis

 

Twenty RS Fevas gathered at the Burnham Sailing Club for the second weekend of the Burnham Squiddies Winter training. The 40 sailors had a broad spread of abilities from new club sailors to World Champions. The various levels of experience were expertly catered for by our coaching team of Jonathan Lewis, Flynn Davies and Chay Taylor. Visitors travelled from as far a field as Draycote, Norlfolk, Seven Oaks and Hayling Island to participate in the coaching.

 

Saturday was medium breeze and bright sunshine. With starting being the focus for the top two groups, rolling starts were the order of the day. Our transitioning sailors concentrated on routines, boat handling and generally sailing their boats faster. Morning and afternoon sessions were divided by a lovely lunch supplied by the BSC super galley slaves with the day ending with a video debrief.

Following the arrival of Storm Angus overnight rumours of "no sailing" were quickly dismissed by the coaches with the announcement of a mini regatta being run. With an onshore commentary being provided to our newer sailors (now affectionately termed "Our Squidlets", boats were launched into gusts of up to 38 knots.

The Squiddies quickly got up to speed and raced hard in the breeze. With a large swell growing throughout the day, this added yet another dimension to challenge our Rockstars. With many place changes, the racing was as competitive as ever, with perfectly executed gybes, under pressure, being the key to success.

With Weymouth this weekend, it is great to see 9 of the 32 entries being from The Squiddies.

Many thanks to all the parents who chipped in with the cooking, RIB launching and recovery, plus generally assisting the coaches.

RS Feva South West Open Training at Royal Western Yacht Club


by James Dowrick on 23 Nov19-20 November 2016

RS Feva South West Training Weekend at Plymouth © James Dowrick
 
 

On the weekend of the 19th & 20th of November eighteen young RS Feva sailors travelled from all over the South West to attend the 2nd training weekend. Unfortunately due to poor weather the first one which was due to be held at Porthpean SC, Cornwall was cancelled so we were very eager for this weekend in Plymouth. The coaches for the weekend were Bex Partridge (Welsh National Squad Coach) and James Dowrick (Experienced RS Feva Sailor & Coach). Below is a weekend report from Henry Hallam & Ashley Hill from St Mawes SC.

Saturday started early. After a two hour journey we finally arrived. We took the boat off the road trailer and began to rig the boat ready to go, this process included putting up the mast and re-rigging the spinnaker before finally putting up the jib and hoisting the main sail. After everyone was rigged we had a short briefing from Bex & James on what we were going to be doing, this was then followed by getting changed and, after having a quick bite to eat, we all headed out on to the water.

As we first left the slipway, it was nice and calm and the wind was just strong enough to move us along nicely. However, after a while of sailing we passed the outer break water and not only did the wind pick up considerably, so did the swell. Out on the water it was great fun as with the strong winds we were flying along especially with the spinnaker up. Our exercises involved; follow the leader, sailing around the triangle and making sure we did 3 tacks and 3 gybes per lap. Unfortunately this meant quite a few capsizes. The wind got too much after a while so we all headed back to shore. After a good sail we arrived back at the club for lunch and since most people were cold and very tired it was decided not to go out again in the afternoon and so we did some theory on wave sailing and boat rigging for different conditions.

On Sunday there was very little wind which was in complete contrast to yesterday. During the rigging time our coaches came around to have a look at our boats and gave us their recommendations for how we should set up our boats. We then got changed, had a quick briefing then headed out onto the water. Once on the water we found we had some nice waves to practise the wave sailing techniques that we had learnt the previous day in the theory session. We also spent time perfecting our roll tacks and gybes, learning how to get maximum propulsion out of the turns. Bex & James then set us some fun challenges which involved a free pumping race and first to the mark race. These were great fun and made for a great end to the morning. We then all had a tow back to the shore where we had some food & drink. Over lunch the wind dropped even more and local weather station was showing just 3knts, with this in mind Bex & James decided to end the weekend to let everyone travel back in daylight and thanked everyone for coming.

It was a great weekend, although the conditions weren't ideal. We can't wait until the next training event as no doubt it will be just as much fun and exciting. A huge thank you to our coaches for the weekend Bex & James. Also thanks to the Royal Western Yacht Club, Plymouth for hosting the weekend. We had great fun.

Thank you to all the sailors & parents for coming to the Royal Western Yacht Club for this train weekend. We look forward to welcoming you to the next training weekend which is on the 14th & 15th January 2017 at Bristol Corinthian Yacht Club. You can sign up by visiting the RS Feva South West Facebook Page... if you have any questions please contact us at southwest@rsfeva.org.uk. Have a good Christmas everyone.

Northern Feva Open Training News


Northern Feva training got off to a blistering good start at Yorkshire Dales SC with Dave Hivey at the weekend; 20 sailors travelled from across the North and down from Scotland to be pushed hard by Dave’s inimitable coaching style, and by the weather which was as feisty and as uncompromising as the coach! There were strong gusty northerly winds, driving rain and bitter cold. Undeterred, this strong group of national squad and national level sailors had an awesome time focusing on downwind sailing, leeward mark rounding and gybing; with racing, start line practice and teamwork thrown in to the mix. Launching in these conditions was quite testing, and there were a fair few capsizes, balanced by some exhilarating planing down wind. Thanks to Dave and to the sailors for keeping the weekend so positive despite the conditions; and to the three Dad’s and the club rib drivers for sticking it out on the water to provide rescue support. Congratulations to Pierce and Alfie for some great sailing whilst keeping their mast intact! A big thank you to YDSC for their warm welcome, an even warmer bonfire, good food and fireworks. Thank you also to Mike Saul dinghy services for repairing a mast at the end of Saturday so that it’s owners could join in the fun again on Sunday. Some excellent photographs of Saturday’s sailing courtesy of Paul Hargreaves can be found on Facebook on the Yorkshire Dales Sailing Club public group.
