International 14 Canada Worlds 2013 DS sail program

Dave Dobrijevic from DS Sails has been Developing International 14 sails for 12 years. These sails have been pushing the speed up and achieving podium results at major events for the last decade, with one of the fastest assymetrics in the business now made faster. We have been working on the up wind sails, not to settle on being quick, but being quicker than the rest. By doing this, the off-the-shelf sailmakers get left behind when making a standard package!

We now offer a tuning service to get the most out of your boat as well, so arrange to have your boat work that bit better for the major events.

Have a great day, Dave Dobrijevic!

DS British Moth wins at Tamesis!

DS 88 and 881 in 3 way tie for 1st place, Rob is only beaten by his own boat and sail from the Nationals! a long un beaten record for this sail now...

Bmoth 88&881

By John Dunkley on 28 Oct

A bitterly cold, strong and gusty northerly winter wind threw every trick it had at the six boats competing for the British Moth Bucket at the open meeting at Tamesis Club, Teddington, on Saturday 27 October and viciously dumped three of them into a situation in which they all scored five points and the overall result had to be resolved by tie breaks. Unlike their fellow competitors, they managed to avoid the bone-chilling experience of being dumped into the Thames by capsizes, but, like the racing, it was very close!

Winner of the Bucket, counting two firsts and a third from the best three of the four races, was Andy Matthews, from Chew Valley SC, sailing X-Moth (881). Second was Toby Cooper, from Broxbourne SC, sailing When (754), counting a first and two seconds. Third was Tamesis helm Rob Wilder in Outsider (88), also counting a first and two seconds. The tie breaks ruled that Matthews should be first because he had beaten the others in the first two races, and that Cooper should be second because he had beaten Wilder in the last race. Wilder, the previous owner of X-Moth, had the consolation of winning the Somerville Trophy for the best results at British Moth open meetings throughout this 80th anniversary year of the class.

Race Officer Carolyne Vines, Tamesis Rear Commodore Sailing, set a long course down to Lensbury for the first race with the up-river mark just downstream of Steven's Ait. Two rounds were sailed before the race was shortened and Andy Matthews crossed the finishing line just over a minute in front of Rob Wilder with Toby Cooper a close third. The course was reduced in length for the second race and this ran to three full rounds before Matthews beat Cooper by 14 seconds with Wilder another six seconds astern. After a break for lunch, Wilder won the third race crossing just over a minute ahead of Cooper, with Matthews another two minutes behind. The fourth race went to Cooper who beat Wilder, despite his having led at both the down and upstream marks, by only two seconds, with Matthews a near third.

The prizes were presented by Nicky Chavasse, who prepared both a ploughman's lunch and tea for the competitors. There were visiting boats from Broxbourne, Chew Valley, Hunts and St. Edmundsbury Sailing Clubs.

Overall Results:

1st X-Moth (881) Andy Matthews (Chew Valley SC) 5pts (tie break)
2nd When (754) Toby Cooper (Broxbourne SC) 5pts (tie break)
3rd Outsider (88) Rob Wilder (Tamesis) 5pts (tie break)

Somerville Trophy - Rob Wilder

3 way tie for 1st place, Rob is only beaten by his own boat and sail from the Nationals! a long unbeaten record for this sail now

Dynamic 14 wins a race at the Easter tray

The International 14 season got off to a flying start over the Easter weekend with 27 boats to include 5 central European teams attending “the races” at Itchenor Sailing Club.

Despite light and somewhat variable conditions “usual business” generally prevailed with many of the strongest U.K boats from last year’s Worlds largely dominating proceedings.

Over the duration of the weekend, two race wins went to Katie Nurton/Nigel Ash (GBR1520) while Sam Pascoe/Alex Knight (GBR 1509), Glen Truswell/Chris Blackburn (GBR1543), Dave Dubrovnic/Neil Jones (GBR 1538) all enjoyed one apiece. Saturday evening brought with it a fantastic “Space” themed fancy dress party with a truly ridiculous and lethal red smoking alcoholic broth for all. (Fuelled by copious amounts of Vodka, Drambuie and Dry Ice)

Much of the technical bar talk over the course of the weekend centred around the possible merits and failings of Glen Truswell’s revolutionary hydrofoil support strut/prep foil system focused squarely at making these extreme boats more neutrally balanced, predictable and hence easier to sail (pictured). While no definitive theoretical conclusion was reached on this matter the boat in question wasn’t outside the top three in any race all weekend so research and development while inevitably continue.

The final day saw the new team of Christina Bassadone/Damian Ash (GBR1499) post a couple of very convincing second place finishes which put them in strong contention overall and to this end the overall standings at close of play were as follows:

1st Katie Nurton & Nigel Ash 8pts
2nd Glen Truswell & Chris Blackburn 10pts
3rd Sam Pascoe & Alex Knight 13pts
4th Dave Dubrovnic & Neil Jones 16pts
5th Christina Bassadone & Damian Ash 16pts

The prize for the first central European boat went to Oliver Voss and Feliz Weidling from Kiel in Germany who finished 9th overall. 

Solo's @ Hayling Brian leads the series using DS

Sunday Spring Series . . .

Well, this early summer just refuses to fade away, let's hope it stays around for the Easter Pennant Weekend. It might have been April Fools Day but Brian Campbell-Bottoms was not fooling as he added another Solo victory to his scoreline. He leads the series from Greg Lamb with Nick Rawlings in third . . .

The Fast handicap have a greater work load than the Solo fleet and after six races Neil Upton-Brown (MPS) has won all six. Holding position on him are Simon Letten (RS700) and Adam Golding (RS700). The Medium Asymmetric were a bit thin today, winners were James Bottoms and Anne Hulbert (RS400) with Mark Nethercleft (RS100) second.

In the Medium handicap the Merlin of Graham  Williamson and C Higgs held off the F15 of Roger and Barbara Palmer for victory while the Merlin of Simon and Jackie Lytton took third and the lead overall. And finally in the Slow handicap event Sarah Smith (Radial) took the win ahead of Will Nicholls also in a Radial. - GN
