Day 2  Seiko 49er & 49erFX World Championships, Marseille, France

For anyone aspiring to win the Seiko 49er & 49erFX World Championships in Marseille, day 2 was a critical hurdle. For the 97 men’s teams from 28 countries, it was all about making the cut for the top 40. Tomorrow the top 40 will re-order into two groups of 20, while for those that didn’t make it through, they still have a slim but fading chance of making it back into the final stages.

Today’s highest profile casualty was the German team of Erik Heil and Thomas Ploessel, 7th at last year’s Worlds, but sitting in 43rd place, a single agonising point away from scraping into the top 40. A black flag disqualification for the Germans yesterday was compounded by a collision with Polish team Lukasz Przybytek and Pawel Kolodzinski, resulting in a capsize for the Poles and a setback for both teams. If Heil was having a nightmare, his girlfriend Victoria Jurczok had a dream day in the 49erFX fleet, moving into the overall lead with crew Anika Lorenz after scoring 2nd in their heat.

It was another light airs day with crews single-trapezing in 4 to 8 knots of breeze on a hot sunny day on the Mediterranean. Jurczok and Lorenz are living up to their billing as one of the favourites if the breeze continues to stay light, and displaced the Singapore team Griselda Khng and Sara Tan from the top of the leaderboard, although only by a point. Dutch team Nina Keijzer and Annette Duetz sit in third place overall. Race wins for Germany’s Leonie Meyer and Maren Hahlbrock and Australia’s Olivia Price and Caitlin Elks move these teams within striking distance of the top 10 in this 53-boat fleet.

With nine nations in the top 10 of the FX fleet, only the Danes have two crew in the top group. The surprise is that European Champions Ida Marie Baad Nielsen and Marie Thusgaard Olsen aren’t one of them. After hitting the windward mark and taking a penalty turn yesterday put them in 26th overall, the much fancied Danish crew at least scored a 5th place to move up to 17th overall. “We only made one small mistake – that penalty yesterday – which cost us a lot,” said Nielsen. “But today was much better. We like all kinds of weather, a good mix of everything would be good. We have been practising in light winds so we are ready.”

In the men’s racing, after the dominance of individual teams winning both of yesterday’s races, the winning was much more evenly distributed around the fleet. Gonzalo Pollitzer and Federico Villambrosa won a race today, moving the Argentineans up to 6th overall. Last year’s Olympic representatives for France, Manu Dyen and Stephane Christidis, move up to 10th overall with their race win, while a bullet for Yukio Makino and Kenji Takahashi puts them in 18th overall.

Holding on to their lead are Great Britain’s Dylan Fletcher and Alain Sign, who won another race to add to their two bullets from day one. While the game in Marseille has mostly about getting a good start and holding a lane out to the left-hand side, the European Champions made their committee-boat start tactics work well for them. “A tricky first race, where we weren’t quite on the ball,” said Sign. “But the second race we upped our game. We started on the committee boat end and tried to roll a few boats to get out to the left. We were keen to lead the boats out on that side, and we managed to win that one. Then that last one we had an entertaining start. One of the Swedish guys snapped our tiller extension just as we were starting, but we managed to fix that and found a few shifts and gusts and got back up to 3rd in that one.”

Sitting in 2nd place is the 2008 Olympic Champion Jonas Warrer with crew Peter Lang from Denmark, while in 3rd and 4th on equal points are two Kiwi teams, Marcus Hansen and Josh Porebski sitting level with Olympic silver medallists Pete Burling and Blair Tuke. “A nice solid day, getting a 4,3,1,” said Tuke. “We got off the start line a bit better and the boat’s going well. Still early days but working out well for us.”

Reigning Olympic and World Champions Nathan Outteridge and Iain Jensen sailed a solid but unspectacular day to sit in 8th overall. To find out who won the coveted jerseys for fastest off the line, fastest downwind, and more, click here….

More light winds are expected for tomorrow as the women continue their FX battle and the men move into 49er Qualifying Round 2.

Location

Stade Nautique du Roucas Blanc 6 Promenade Georges Pompidou 13008 Marseille To discover the event venue on live through the city of Marseille Webcam !

Racing Venue

The marina is in a U-shape, with ramps leading into the water on all sides with rough dimensions of 200m by 100m and then a serpentine breakwall to get to the sea.  There is room for as many boats as will attend and the entire area is surrounded by a high metal fence for security.  There are parking and trailer/camper facilities inside the venue. U_shaped_venue1 Here is how you will be able to launch. launching_ramps_Marseilles2 There are buildings, showers, toilets, wifi, tie downs anchors, hoses, and many more facilities for sailors in the venue.

Sailing Locations

There is a huge bay for up to 6 racecourses.  The shipping traffic goes on the other side of the Islands, so will not be a problem.  If we decide to do a long distance race, there are many interesting geographical features to use in the course. marseilles_overview3 Above, you can see the Marseille center is around the corner from where we are racing.  All the ferries along with other commercial vessels go outside the bank of islands that separate the two bays.  It’s about a 20 minute drive to the town center from the regatta venue. Below, see in greater detail where we will be racing from and where the host club is.  The host club has a beautiful bar and deck, so will be a great place for us to take VIP’s and sponsors after the days racing. Marseilles_Sailing_Area4 Almost the entire harbour is bordered by beaches from our boat park all the way to the host club.  On nice weekends, there can be 50,000 locals who come to the beach to hang out. Marseilles_beachfront5   Marseilles_Theatre_Style6 3 options are circled for the Theatre Style Racecourse areas.  Each of them is fine as for the three wind directions, though obviously we’re hoping it’s not offshore. What differentiates the three options is how many people they could accomodate to watch. A) is best viewed from a wide public walkway on the side of a busy street.  It’s elevated, so would be a fantastic view of the racing for any spectotors we can attract.  It could probably fit 500-1000 spectators. B) is right outside the breakwall from the the boat park.  Spectators can sit on a grassy hill with (hopefully) a big screen TV and watch the racing live.  This would be a very convenient and modest way to have our finals.  It would be easy to set up a spectator area and have the medal ceremony with the crowd after the finals, boats could even sail straight to the beach after racing as it’s only a short haul to our boat park.  This area could probably accomodate about 3000 fans/visitors comfortably. C) This is a very large area.  The T breakwall that justs out into the bay is about 100 wide and 300m long.  If we can secure big sponsors who want to put up grandstands and make a huge event of this, the location is very good.  Otherwise it will be too big for us to fill.  This area could probably accomodate about 20,000 people to watch. Below is the breakwall for area C T_area_for_viewing7 And the view the spectators would have looking at the water. C_course_viewer_angle8

Living and Eating

Here is a link to the club’s accommodation recommendations.  There are a number of hotels, apartments for rent in the suburb.  Only a 5 minute walk from the venue is one complex with a hotel that would be perfect for sailors.  That hotel has weekly rates that are quite good and 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6 person room options. In between the accomodation area and the sailing venue are about 20 restaurants with food from all over the world.  This should be a really nice socializing area for all sailors in the evenings, as it’s based around a pedestrian walkway.

The Club

The host club, Yachting Club De La Pointe Rouge, has a wonderful restaurant, bar and patio.  For any sailors planning on bringing their sponsors to the event, there will be a great venue for looking after them.  Here are some pictures of the facilities.
