2018 ISAF Sailing World Championships, Aarhus, Denmark (video)


Take a look at what is coming ahead in four years time at the Aarhus 2018 ISAF Sailing World Championships. Published on Sep 21, 2014

Aarhus, Denmark will host the 2018 ISAF Sailing World Championships and for Azad-Ahmad the preparations are well underway, “The ISAF Worlds in 2014 have inspired us in Aarhus to work even harder to prepare for the 2018. In 2017 we will be the European Capital of Culture. The theme is ‘rethink’. I hope that we together can rethink the future of sailing. We are looking forward to welcoming you in our new and rethought part of the city with a new sailing centre. “It is my hope that Aarhus in 2018 will have come from being the European Capital of Culture to being the world capital of sailing.” The second largest city in Denmark, Aarhus is situated on the eastern side of the peninsula of Jutland. With a history extending back to the Viking Age, Aarhus has sailing imprinted in its DNA. The competition venue will be established at a new Aarhus International Sailing Centre in Aarhus Yachting Harbour. Easily accessible and within walking distance of downtown Aarhus, the area is a favourite destination for residents and tourists alike who enjoy the restaurants and shops as well as clean bathing waters, fishing and fresh air. Aarhus has welcomed several world class sailing events in recent years including the 2008 ISAF Youth Sailing World Championship, 2010 505 World Championship, 2011 A-Cat World Championship and the 2013 49er and 49erFX European Championships.

Another exciting day of sailing • Dutch Match Cup | 24-28 September 2014 | Lelystad, Holland: "Canfield is trough to the semi finals, he has sailed a almost perfect Round Robin with only 2 points down. A big concurrent was Richard on a second place with a score 9 out of 12. It is an exciting final round, Hansen is the very last drop out. The Swedish team had trouble all week handling the boats. For Canfield from US One it’s a really good day, they even get some rest before the Semi Finals. “It doesn’t feel like a good day, mostly because we had the feeling that we weren’t as fast as we thought.” The only race Canfield lost was against Swinton. “We had a bit of trouble at the start which put Swinton ahead of us. He took his penalty just minutes before the start giving us a change to head up. But unfortunately we still lost this race.” US One will be watching the quarter finals tomorrow. “There will be some though matches, everyone is really competitive against each other. I really don’t have a clue who we will meet in the Semi Finals.”..."

Dutch Match Cup, Sopot Match Race, Sailing Videos


The Sopot Match Race, the newest event to join the Alpari World Match Racing Tour, raced on the Baltic sea in Diamont 3000 yachts. 12 teams go head to head to see who will take the coveted title, amongst them Ian Williams, leading the Tour after two Stages, chased by the LunaJets team skippered by Mathieu Richard. Taylor Canfield, the 2013 World Champion, looking to keep his hands on the Tour championship, needed to start putting points on the leaderboard as did Stena Match Cup Sweden winner Bjorn Hansen. But could the local talent upset the pecking order with 2 time event winner Przemek Tarnacki and Americas Cup veteran Karol Jablonski pushing hard with huge Polish support. Four days of action packed racing led to an enthralling final just metre's from the Molo Pier. Sopot is the most prestigious sea resort in Poland located on the Baltic Sea, between Gdansk and Gdynia. Full of life during the day and night Sopot offers plenty of sporting and cultural opportunities along with a vibrant nightlife. The stunning racing venue is located only tens of meters from the beach and the longest wooden pier in Europe - the famous 550m long Molo pier which attracts over 20,000 people every day. Social activities are centred around the Sheraton Sopot Hotel and the racing is held out of the brand new yachting Pro Marina located at the end of the Molo pier.

Top has to work harder to stay on top • Dutch Match Cup, Lelystad, Holland"25.09.2014--The sailors are learning really fast in the boats. Tactical moves and surprising results tell the difference comparing to yesterday. The top 3 sailors from yesterday try to stay on top, but it’s getting harder and harder. Gilmour beats Canfield in the first race today. Another surprising result we see in the race Hansen vs Williams. During the first match today Canfield wins the start but Gilmour seizes the lead at the first mark. The Aussies do have a penalty from the pre-start, just before finishing they spin and beat Canfield. It’s the first point for Gilmour and the first match down for Canfield, this means a change in the top results. Another exciting race happens between Hansen en Swinton. A lot of penalties were given during the pre-start, and then Swinton crosses the start early. He restarts and receives a penalty, putting Hansen in the lead of the match. It results in a win for Hansen, their first victory this week...."

The World Match Racing Tour (WMRT) is the world's leading match racing series featuring World-Class Championship events across the globe. The series is sanctioned by the International Sailing Federation (ISAF) with "Special Event" status. The World Match Racing Tour (WMRT) is currently sponsored by Alpari and thus officially known as the Alpari World Match Racing Tour (AWMRT). In the world of sailing it is now widely referred to as the Alpari World Match Racing Tour (AWMRT). More info: wmrt.com

ALPARI World Match Racing Tour - News"Lelystad, Netherlands (23 Sept 2014): Twelve teams are about to start racing at the inaugural Dutch Match Cup, the latest addition to the Alpari World Match Racing Tour (AWMRT). With the contest due to begin on Wednesday, today the sailors are making the most of practice in the Maxfun25 keelboats in Lelystad, less than an hour’s drive from Amsterdam. None of the top seeds has raced these boats on these waters before, so it will be a fast learning curve as they get to grips with the specifics of the venue and the equipment. The seven Tour Card holders have only just flown in from the Chicago Match Cup which concluded on Sunday with a thrilling final between Taylor Canfield’s US One team and Ian Williams with GAC Pindar. Based on recent form, these two crews rank among the favourites in Lelystad, although there will be other teams that know they have to break Williams’ stranglehold on the top of the Tour leaderboard. Mathieu Richard and LunaJets have had a good season and sit in 2nd overall, albeit on 74 points, a full 20 points behind the British five-time World Champion. After four events this season, GAC Pindar has taken 94 points from a possible maximum of 100."

Charity Regatta Rallies as Alibaba Keeps Sailors at Work - Bloomberg: "Alibaba’s (BABA) initial public offering put a slight damper on the fourth annual New York Harbor Regatta. With just a couple of days’ notice, some of the bankers scheduled to sail on Sept. 19, the day of the IPO, pulled out of the races, which benefit programs at the maritime-driven New York Harbor School on Governors Island. “Because of Alibaba, we scattered to other boats,” said Strother Scott, an associate at H.I.G. Capital in Boston, who had planned to sail on a family boat... Credit Suisse and Goldman Sachs, two of the underwriters of the Alibaba IPO, were the event’s lead sponsors, along with Two Harbors Investment Corp. (TWO) Deutsche Bank was also an underwriter of the IPO. The conditions on the water were not as favorable as those for Alibaba. The race started with a “nice northeasterly breeze, then the wind shifted 300 degrees,” said Julian Fisher, chairman of the race committee at the Seawanhaka Corinthian Yacht Club of Oyster Bay, New York, who presided...."
