Has The Optimist Evolved Too Far?

Www_sailingscuttlebutt_com_2017_0_2Has The Optimist Evolved Too Far?
Scuttlebuttlogo2Scuttlebutt Sailing News
Published on April 16th, 2017

The Optimist has introduced more kids to sailing than other boat, and is the dominant international class for youth competition. While the primary goal during the youth years is to instill the love of sailing, the influence of racing can impact the priorities.

As builders are vying to supply the fastest boats, there apparently remains enough wiggle room to improve on this 70 year old design. However, when new models come out, parents might need to step up to keep their kids from getting stepped on. This reality just hit Carlo Cagna as he shares in this report:
Opti2_gif_3Being how the Optimist is a one design class, should this be allowed? Is this a favoring of some kind to bigger builders? We visited the website of the manufacturer http://www.winneroptimist.dk/optimist/3d-star > and it’s real as they are advertising these faster boats.

How can the Optimist class accept this? I am eager to hear from others about this situation.

I just downloaded the Optimist price list and coming to terms with the fact that a fully rigged boat, on launching trailer, delivered would cost me in the region of $5000, or the price of several second-hand Flying Fifteens. If I were a parent I would, of course, need to factor in the cost of a RIB and a 4 x 4 to tow everything, together with spare sails and gear. Oh, and the price doesn’t include a paddle or a bailer. Having spent so much the additional dollars would not, one imagines, be a problem.

O'pen BIC "Un-Regattas" in North America

Sailinganarchy_com_2017_03_23_the_2Subject: New element to O'pen BIC "Un-Regattas" in North America
Sent: Thu, Mar 23, 2017 8:32 am

I thought you would like to see brief video of new element introduced at our North American "Un-Regatta" in Sarasota, Florida this past weekend. 
The idea is to bring some element of X-Games to Youth Sailing. The kids LOVED it.
The "Bridge of Doom" was tested in Sarasota and will next be used at the America's Cup.

Full event video coming next.
Happy sailing,

The Queen of Post-War yachting photography dies at the age of 101

9Eight Bells: Eileen Ramsay 
Scuttlebuttlogo2Scuttlebutt Sailing News, Published on February 10th, 2017
Source: Barry Pickthall, PPL Photo Agency

Eileen Ramsay, the Queen of British yachting photography during the post war years, died on February 8 at the age of 101.

Ramsay recorded the explosion in small boat sailing during the 1950s and 60s, capturing not only the boats but sailing pioneers like Francis Chichester (*left photo), Alec Rose, Col Blondie Hasler and French legend Eric Tabarly, then pressing the frontiers of solo passage making across the Atlantic and around the world.

7 Her famous archive includes images of Olympic sailors Keith Musto and Tony Morgan, Silver medallists at the 1964 Games at Tokyo in the Flying Dutchman Class (*lower left photo), and Rodney Pattisson and Iain MacDonald-Smith who won Gold for Britain in the same Flying Dutchman class at the Mexico Games in 1968 in the Flying Dutchman two-man trapeze dinghy (*lower right photo). She also recorded the career of Charles Currey, who won Silver at the Helsinki Games in 1952, and Robin Aisher, who represented Britain in the 5.5m keelboat class at the 1960 and ’64 Games before finally winning Bronze at the Acapulco regatta in ’68.

 Other noted sailors to have fallen within Eileen Ramsay’s focus have been Stewart Morris, Gold Medal sailor at the 1948 Games in Torquay, fellow International 14 champion and Olympic representative Bruce Banks, and Sir John Oakeley, the son of wrestling champion Sir Atholl Oakeley, who became one of Britain’s most successful dinghy champions in the 60s and 70s, winning the Merlin Rocket Class championship three times in succession before going on to win the Flying Dutchman world championship.

1----- The rest is omitted.

'Queen of yachting' captures sailing's golden era on film

Story highlights
Eileeen Ramsey began her professional career as a 22-year-old in 1937
She pioneered the water-level photography angle, now an industry standard
Her career took off in the 1950s and 1960s when sailing enjoyed a post-war explosion in Britain

The water-level shot - Eileen Ramsay pioneered the water-level photography angle - shooting images of sail boats from as close to the water as possible. (Photo1)

Composition - According to Ramsay, a real photographer doesn't just takes a photograph, they "make" one by working hard to get the best angle. This beautifully-composed image was shot at the 1962 Cowes Week Regatta. (Photo2)

Eileen Ramsay - Ramsay's career took off in the 1950s and 1960s, when the sport of sailing enjoyed a post-war explosion in Britain. Here she is with her trusted Rolleiflex camera in the summer of 1963. (photo3)

Racing past Parliament - Ramsay made sure she was present for the first dinghy race in central London, was held on the river Thames in 1956. (Photo4)

'Black Sails' - This award-winning photograph from 1945 is one of the first nautical-themed images that Ramsay took and is entitled "Black Sails." It remains one of her personal favorites. (Photo5)

'Flying Dutchman' - Sailing legend and clothing company founder Keith Musto is seen here fighting for second place against a French rival during the 1964 "Flying Dutchman" European championships. He and his sailing partner went on to win a silver medal at that year's Olympic Games in Tokyo. (Phhoto6)

Collision caught on camera - Ramsay would always make sure she placed herself where the action was. Here she manages to catch the collision beween a competing yacht and a spectator boat at the 1969 Cowes Week Regatta in England. (photo7)

True colors - Ramsay began taking color pictures in 1962 and set up her own color developing process two years later -- but it took several more years before magazines and newspapers could actually print in color. (Photo8)

In perfect balance - This 1968 shot is of British Olympic hopefuls Rodney Pattisson and Ian MacDonald-Smith on board a "Flying Dutchman." Ramsay recalls that she wasn't allowed to photograph the inside of the boat: "They were much faster than everyone else and didn't want to give any ideas away to the competition," she said. (Photo9)

Dragons in action - Ramsay, who spent her early career doing portrait photography, says she somehow always knew how to successfully compose photograps. Here she lines up a number of "International Dragon" boats, racing during the 1966 Cowes Week Regatta in England. (photo10)

Eight Bells: Paul Elvstrom

Scuttlebutt Sailing News

1. Eight Bells: Paul Elvstrom
Published on December 7th, 2016
Legendary Danish yachtsman Paul Elvstrøm died in his sleep at the age of 88 years on December 7, 2016. He died at his birthplace in Hellerup surrounded by his family.
Elvstrøm, considered one of the greatest sailing athletes in the history of sailing, won four consecutive Olympic gold medals, beginning with the Firefly at 1948 London and then with the Finn at 1952 Helsinki, 1956 Melbourne, and 1960 Rome.

To stick with the sailing metaphors, his passing is a bit like an ocean race where you cannot see the others, but you know they are there somewhere, just over the horizon and their presence will always have an impact on your decisions.
His moniker was ‘The Great Dane’. It could just have easily been the Great Person.

As for those sitting on four, in addition to Elvstrom <DEN> there are Ben Ainslie <GBR> (sailing), Al Oerter <USA> (discus), Carl Lewis <USA> (long jump), Michael Phelps <USA> (200 meter swimming medley), and Kaori Icho <JPN> (woman's freestyle wrestling). Also, Elvstrom did not invent the self-bailer but he did design a widely used version.

Paul Elvstrom: Obituary

By Gary Jobson (As amended by World Sailing)

ElvstromTo be universally recognized as "the best" in any sport is extremely rare. But sailor Paul Elvstrom has earned this description. Over four consecutive Olympic Games he won four Gold medals. Only four other athletes, Carl Lewis (long jump), Steve Redgrave (rowing) and Al Oeter (discus) and one superstar sailor in Ben Ainslie have matched this feat.

Paul Elvstrom, more than any other sailor, has won on the racecourse, healed some painful wounds and has earned the respect of every sailor in the world as the "the best".
