2016 Formula Nationals

If you want to know what it was like at the 2016 Formula Nationals let me take you there. Close your eyes, take a deep breath… now, imagine you’re standing at the gas station admiring the Ferrari that pulled in behind you. The driver steps out, clocks you looking, and tosses you the keys. “Here mate, take her for a spin”. You’re so shocked you almost drop the keys, but that’s nothing compared to the moment you push the start button. The engine explodes into life, before settling into an angry, lumpy burble, you nudge the throttle and it responds instantly with a visceral howl. Your hearts pounding as you nose out of the gas station onto the motorway on-ramp. Straight into a thick stream of bumper to bumper traffic.

Within minutes you are bathed in sweat, battling to reign in a beast designed to leap to 100 in just over 3 seconds to the erratic flow of gridlock traffic. Your clutch leg burns. The seats, designed to lock you in through violent cornering, attack your ribs with each breath. The only thing more acute than the pain is the knowledge your limited time with the machine is pouring away.

After what seems like an eternity the road finally stretches out empty in front of you and you nail the throttle. Finally you feel the intoxicating rush as you are pinned to the back of the seat with astonishing ferocity, the howl from the engine rising to a demonic shriek. You flick your gaze down for a split second watching the numbers on the speedo climb in a blur. Quickly flicking it back up and for the second time in as many hours your heart drops through your stomach, blue flashing lights fill the rear vision mirror…
 
For lack of a better wind.. sorry word, the first two races were, ah, challenging? No wind minimum meant the fleet battled against shifty conditions leaving many becalmed and working on their sub planing technique. Needless to say the decision to head in for lunch was a popular one.

Back on land we had a difficult decision to make, head out soon and do another race to guarantee a result or wait for the wind to build. Using a level of disregard for democracy that Joseph Stalin would have been proud of, the decision was made to get back out there quickly.

Unfortunately the subsequent race was even lighter than the first, but hey hindsight is a wonderful thing and at least now we had a result. Finally the breeze kicked in and we had two beautiful races of planning, sunshine and smiles. Strangely as we lined up for the sixth race, a beautiful, steady 18 knots grooming the course,we got told to head in! Interesting call, but at least we got to watch the RS:X fleet blasting around while we de-rigged.

As always none of this would be possible without a team of volunteers sacrificing their weekend, so I would like to say a huge thanks to Manly Sailing club, Paul and Jo Mckenzie (and Tony for the photo's), Marylin Wood for taking the results and Barry Thom for the beer and pizza.

Congratulations to Brett Morris who came over from Aussie to clean up the regatta. Brett was followed home by Tim Wood who handled the tricky conditions really well to take title of NZ formula national champion. Luke Holliday deserves a massive round of applause for taking out the hotly contested junior division, beating himself to take the title. Special mention to Catherine Chimney for doing a great job repping the ladies.   
 

Lets go smash the Aussies!

Lets continue that great Kiwi tradition of smashing Aussies at sport. If you can't see the poster, they are holding their slalom,freestyle and freerace nationals at Green Island from June 5th-9th. By all accounts Green Island (near Cairns) is a slice of tropical paradise with warm water, and steady winds. For more information check out their brilliant website: http://www.greenislandnats.org/. If Dingo and Roaster, the aussie guys we met in Noumea are anything to go by there will be a great crew present. Tim Wood has been also so chat to him to get the inside word. 

Living with a 70cm Fin

 

For me, the different disciplines within windsurfing are a huge part of the appeal. Keeps it fresh, especially up in Auckland where we get a fairly mixed bag of conditions. So I was stoked when I ended up with a full set of Formula gear for a couple of weeks courtesy of Jim Rodgers and Ray Smith. So what’s it like to live with? Should you rush to your nearest retailer and buy?

First things first everything is huge. Thanks to a range of terrible trade-me decision I now drive a stupid little Peugeot. Fits my 85 wide slalom board and 8.6 inside no problem, unless you need to look left.  No chance for the formula gear. Even the people mover I had to borrow struggled to fit the 12m sail, 560 mast and 3m boom.
Rigging up is quite tricky. The luff curve of the sail demands the 560 mast is bent into a semi-circle, which you have to do without the assistance of purchase. The tension comes on way before you can thread the downhaul rope through the extension. It took me an hour to the first time, and lasted one minute before the downhaul rope snapped. It gets a lot easier with practice but what never gets easier is walking the board deep enough into the water so the (very expensive) fin doesn’t hit the ground. I’m pretty tall but the even so I can only think jumping on when the water is lapping round my gentlemans area. I can see this becoming a huge problem in winter.

Once you’re finally sailing, everything starts to make sense. They never feel very fast, but the angles are impressive. They cover huge amount of ground very quickly. You need to spend some time getting your set-up dialled but once you do you can hang onto the big sails in heaps of wind. Downwinds are pretty fun, not as scary as you would think even when it’s pretty breezy. The only hard part is the big bear off around the top mark. And uphauling.

Would I buy one? If there was regular racing then yes. In the two weeks I had the board I got out almost every day, most of them too light for big slalom gear. The big gear gives you a good workout and as an added bonus makes everything else feel fun and light. However I get bored pretty quickly unless I’m wave sailing or racing and by the end could only force myself to stay out half an hour.  So as it stands I probably wouldn’t deal with the hassle to do one event a year. 

Help Natalia get to Rio

Natalia Kosinska is a former ISAF Youth Windsurfing World Champion, and the current New Zealand Female RS:X Windsurfing Champion!
This year at the RS:X World Championships in Israel, Natalia placed 16th, qualifying New Zealand for a spot at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio... But narrowly missed Yachting New Zealand's tough standard for funding and selection to represent New Zealand at the Olympic games. This means she has been fitting training around full time work as a physio to fund her campaign (I want to do an article on this next month but I need more information). Natalia has one more chance to meet Yachting New Zealand's Olympic selection standard at the ISAF World Cup in Hyeres, France, at the end of April!

All proceeds will go towards new windsurfing equipment, professional coaching, accommodation and travel expenses, race insurance, and entry fees for Natalia's Campaign to the ISAF World Cup in Hyeres France, at the end of April.

Donate here: https://givealittle.co.nz/cause/nataliasolympicwindsurfingselectioncampaign

Want someone to work for your money?. Fitness maniac and lettuce enthusiast Alex Hart is going to be walking up and down Mount Maunganui non-stop for 24 hours to raise money for Natalia! He tells me he is doing this to thank Natalia for helping him get to here he is today. Email him at alexhartnz@gmail.com and choose to pledge 50c, $1, $2, $5 or $10 for each lap he completes. He's kicking things off at 5pm 16th of April so if you're down that way go give him some support!

Spot of the Month

Wellington - Windsurfing the Roaring Fourties
 

My earliest memories of Wellington as a windsurfing location were formed from reading early New Zealand Windsurfing Magazines from the eighties showing guys going large in extreme conditions.  My first impression from these photos was that it was bloody windy, cold and populated by a tougher type of sailor who revelled in the northerly gales and polar southerlies usually pictured sailing in outrageous conditions with very small sails.
 
My first impressions proved reasonably accurate.  This article provides a brief description of windsurfing in Wellington, the conditions, the people and the main spots they sail.
The author, James Court demonstrating Lyall bay isn't always cross-onshore.

Why is it so windy? 

Wellington is a very windy city, the windiest out of all of New Zealand’s towns and cities.  Wellington is located in what meteorologists call a “river of wind”.  This river of wind is formed in the Cook Strait, a narrow gap between the mountain ranges of the North and South Islands.  The air is trapped by the northern and southern mountain ranges that, like a funnel, squeezes and accelerates the air through Cook Strait. 
 
There are really only two wind directions in Wellington - northerlies and southerlies and slight variations.  The same gap and mountains that accelerates the wind also redirects it turning westerly winds into northerlies and northwesters.  While southerlies are also common Northerlies outnumber southerlies about 2 to 1.
Local ripper Clayton Dougan, jamming a frosty one off the top.
Wellington wind summary:
  • Is located in a River of Wind - a wind corridor between the South Island and the North Island.
  • Is the windiest main centre in New Zealand with a mean annual wind speed of 22 km/h.
  • Averages 22 days per year with mean wind speeds over 63 km/h or 40 knots.
  • Averages 173 days per year with wind gusts greater than 60 km/h or 32 knots.
  • October is generally the windiest month of the year with a mean of 27 days with wind speeds over 15 knots, 19 of those days are over 20 knots.
  • North is by far the most common wind direction, blowing from this direction 37.6% of the time.
  • Wellington is one of the windiest cities in the world (possibly the windiest) and is windier than other southern windy cities including Cape Town, Perth, and Geraldton.
  • The strongest wind speeds in New Zealand where recorded at Wellington’s Hawkins Hill of 248km/h (134 knots) on the 6 November 1959 and 4 July 1962.
The effect of all this wind is that Wellington sailors can get alot of time on the water, with a reasonably keen sailor able to easily notch up over 100 days per year on sails not bigger than 5.5m2

The people

The handful of spots and heaps of wind has resulted in a tight knit, friendly and highly performing windsurfing community.
 
The main thing that has struck me while living here is the constantly changing makeup of the community.  While there are many local sailors, a large part of the windsurfing community is transitory, made up of windsurfers moving here for 2 – 3 year periods from other main centres or often other countries.  European sailors are the most common and we have the odd South American also.  Some of these sailors come here specifically to experience the windsurfing in Wellington and occasionally we have a professional or near professional visiting pushing the locals boundaries.
 
Wellington sailors are also high performing and include a number of former national champs across almost all the disciplines. 

The spots

Wellington is a city built on the side of a mountain range.  Houses and buildings are jammed cheek to jowl on the little flat land there is, or hang precariously from the surrounding bush covered hillsides.  The Wellington hills drop off to the calm deep water harbour on one side and the raging Cook Strait on the other.  The shores are fringed by a mix of gravely and sandy beaches.  While the cities intimacy with the water offers many possible sailing spots, a handful of these are so good no one really bothers going anywhere else.  The following provides a brief rundown of each of the most popular spots.

Evans Bay (“the Ditch”)

Evans Bay is probably the most frequently sailed spot in the greater Wellington area and probably the windiest.  Hills on either side of this harbour-side bay squeeze even more speed out of the predominant southerlies and northerlies.   Because of this accelerating effect the Ditch is the first to go over the top in windy conditions, generating huge walls of wind driven sea spray and a big rolling chop.  Depending on wind strength and conditions the Ditch supports a wide range of disciplines ranging from slalom sailing and freestyle to survival sailing on the smallest gear you can find.

Seatoun

Seatoun is located at the entrance to the Wellington harbour and has a similar set up to the Ditch with northerlies and southerlies being accelerated by the surrounding hills.  Unlike the Ditch however, Seatoun boasts good grassy rigging areas and sandy beaches instead of pointy rocks. Popular with freeride and increasingly freestyle sailors in the smooth waters formed by a rocky kelp forest located at the eastern end of the beach

Lyall Bay

Lyall Bay is Wellington’s central wave spot located not more than 10 minutes from the CBD.  Lyall Bay is sandy spit jammed in between the breakwater of the Wellington Airport and the hill suburbs of Melrose.   The hills of the Miramar Peninsular and Wellington coastal hills accelerate strong cold southern ocean southerlies into the bay.  When these winds are combined with a strong southerly swell the bay produces the heaviest waves in the region.  While it is best known as a cross-onshore wave sailing spot it also produces quality down the line conditions when the south swell combines with a northerly wind.

Plimmerton

Located at the entrance to Porirua harbour Plimmerton is one of the jewels of New Zealand windsurfing.  Wind driven swell shoals over the shallow bar in fresh to strong northerlies producing fantastic jumping conditions and at times good riding conditions.  Because this spot is non-threatening and has good facilities, it can attract the crowds.  On a windy summer weekend it is possible to see more than 40 sailors on the water here.  This is also a great spot to catch some of New Zealand’s best getting lots of airtime.

Eastbourne

Eastbourne is located on the eastern side of the harbour and is the favourite local spot for Eastbourne and Petone sailors.  Set in the picturesque coastal village of Eastbourne it boasts great rigging areas and facilities and it has been the location of the Wellington leg of the North Island Cup for the last couple of years.  Eastbourne is best known as a spot for slalom and freeride sailing and as an entry point those wanting to explore the harbour. 

Other spots in the Wellington region

Outside of Wellington there are other great windsurfing spots, some just waiting to be discovered.  The Wairarapa is a favourite destination of many Wellington sailors.   From the smooth water of Lake Ferry, favoured by the speed merchants, to the numerous, but fickle, reef breaks (Windies, Tora, Ning Nongs, Didis) located along the Wairarapa’s southern coastline.

    Can Laurence and Jack take this opportunity to say a huge thanks to James Court, Clayton Dougan and Bruce Spedding for bringing this epic feature to the newsletter. The more content we can get from the readers the better, and the more it takes the spotlight from latte land up in Auckland!

Mauritius Freeride

For its 5th year, the Indian Ocean Windsurfing & Kitesurfing Team Championship will be held at the Zilwa Attitude from the 2nd to the 7th of August with some amazing races around the island.

Four categories :

  • Windsurf Race
  • Windsurf Freeride
  • Kitesurf twin tip
  • Kitesurf Race (anything else than twin tip)

Over the 6 days of Waiting period, we will choose the best 4 windy days to race.

SPOTS & RACES

1. Le MORNE CLASSIC (South)

This race is also known as being THE CLASSIC. Held at le Morne in an epic downwind slalom race, this race is unique in the world as it is held only few metres away from the beach where hundreds of spectators can enjoy the show.This is a fast & intense race !

As reaches are quite short, kiters & windsurfers wont start together. This is a twintip race only for kiters.

2. Pte DESNY CROSSING (South-East)

This race is the biggest Challenge as it is not only the longest race of the event but most probably of the world : 20 km to Ile Aux Cerf + 10 km slalom on the flatest lagoon of the island + 20 km back to the Preskil Beach Resort. 50km of pure pleasure while discovering the East coast by the sea !!!

Depending on the weather forecast, this race will hopefully be done twice. Starts will be windsurf & kitesurf together but with different reach to avoid shallow waters for foilers.

3. ZILWA DOWNWIND (North-East)

Anse la Raie is the windiest spot in Mauritius with a huge lagon where we will be doing PWA style downwind slalom. As reaches are quite short, kiters & windsurfers wont start together. This is a twintip race only for kiters.

All races are designed to make you have a maximum of fun. No need to be a champion... but the winner overall will definitely be the best rider !

Sometimes its more fun with a swan

The Wisdom of Roscoe

For me, one of the highlights of the formula nationals was spending quality time with Roscoe. As with most windsurf events, we spent alot of time talking and Roscoe did not disappoint. He kept us informed and in stitches in equal measure the entire weekend with his wit and stunningly in depth knowledge of the marine industry. Here are some of the highlights:

What do you call a short Mexican gangster? A paragraph.

"Mate they used to have these huge power boat races in Miami, police vs the drug smugglers, and do you know who the best driver was? Chuck Norris". (this was not a joke, apparently it's a fact)

You could win the 2003 world championships with that boom.

What did the boy with no hands get for x-mas I don't know he hasn't opened it yet.

"Woman are always right" - When asked if he wanted to contest his protest, brought forward by Kat.

Maui Race Series

So the name says a lot however, I feel you all need to know some of the finer details to why so many people come and take part in this awesome fun, social and windy event. For years now kiwis have been dominating the MRS where this has been the training ground of legends like Bruce and Barbara Kendal, Scott Fenton and many others.

With trade winds of around 20-30knots each day from the NE it is the perfect training ground to not only perfect those gybes, but also tune your gear with some high level sailors both from Hawaii but also international riders doing R&D for some major brands like Neil Pryde qand North Sails.
This year is shaping up to be yet another great year of racing with a strong kiwi contingent going. With new legends in the making we can expect some major progress as two of NZ slalom podium sailors (Jack Holliday -2nd and Alex Hart - 3rd) will be spending 2months training and living the Maui life. 

All this race talk aside there is some awesome spots for wave sailing and for some social BBQ's. Most of the spots kiwis stay at have rad outdoor areas perfect for gatherings and after windsurf/surf debriefs. This is emphasised by the weekly trip to Little beach on sunday afternoons for sunset and fire dancing. 

Also by making your way to this rad place you can sail at some of the world famous spots like Ho'okipa, Sprecklesville and Kanaha. But wait it gets better, on the days where you get calm days on the north shore due to it being to North you can go to the south side and sail at Kihei in 30knots with either a small reef break or on the outside in rolling ocean swells.

Surf and SUP News

Worlds no.1 Jumbo Surfer Pleads Insanity! 

Surf magazines have to wade into the battle for our attention armed with nothing more than dreary old words and unmoving pictures. These days that’s sort of like turning up for a fight with Isis armed with a bow and arrow. However as the print industry wilts, the online versions bloom (sorry).
 In principle I should be against this sort of carry-on, given that I would rather read the operating manual of my microwave than read anything on a kindle. But actually I’m sold. The good ones (Beachgrit) have the same writers and photographers that used to work for the print titles so the qualities there. Yeah the pressure to pump out daily content means there are some throwaway stories but given you pay nothing, it still represents good value for money.  What’s more the online format unshackles the writers, allowing them to attack the big industry dogs with true stories. Did you know Rip Curl uses slave labour? Well the print mags wouldn’t have told you for fear of losing a centrefold add of Alana Blanchard’s ass. Now though you can read all about it here.

Anyway where I’m going with this is; I first came across the image of Jimbo above in a print mag. It was tossed in with a story about Bali, with no information other than an inane caption.  I wanted to know more! Who was this warrior representing the generously proportioned gentleman? My questions burned unanswered until one day I came across the very same image on Beachgrit, however this time there was more than just a caption, there was a story attached. And what a story it turned out to be.
We learn our new friends name is Jim Pellegrine and that one night, after enjoying a few refreshing beverages with friends he saddled up behind the wheel and promptly crashed into a parked car. Undeterred, Jimbo ploughed on hanging out the window to see past the airbag and shattered windscreen. Unfortunately he then sideswiped a truck severing his arm below the elbow. A volunteer fireman eventually found Jimbo covered in blood screaming “All I had was a couple of Pina Colada’s now I lost my whole F#$*king arm!”

It’s alleged that in the Ambulance ride to hospital Jimbo was a bit disgruntled. In fact he may have said something to the paramedic along the lines of “when this is over I’m going to track you down and kill you”. So our hero went straight from hospital to jail facing a raft of charges including terroristic threatening and driving under the influence. We learned that in his initial hearing Jimbo was described as one of the top 5 jumbo surfers in the world, which prompted him to jump to his feet and proclaim “I’m number one on that list actually”.

We then learned that he managed to overturn his DUI charges through a technicality, the officer taking his blood sample had done so without permission and before a warrant was issued. Small victory, the terroristic threatening charges are the big ones, but victory none the less.

The latest in the ongoing trial has Jimbo pleading temporary insanity – brought on by extreme amounts of pain. How will this pan out for him? You can sit back and relax knowing the updates will flow through your inbox, in the meantime watch his video of Jimbo ripping in Indo. Welcome to the internet.   
 

WSL - Snapper, Bells, Wilko and Harry

If you go onto the WSL website now and click CT rankings you will notice way up the top sits Matt Wilkinson on 20,000 points, with two wins from two events. For any surfer that is an amazing start to the year, but for someone who normally sits around the requalification bubble and has never won a WCT event before 2016 it is simply incredible. It’s a sporting story with almost no equal. However we cannot ignore the parallels between Wilko’s 2016 CT season and Harry Reed’s 15/16 AWA slalom season. For both Harry and Wilko talent has never been the issue but sometimes consistency has been hard to come by. Mostly this comes down to the fact that both characters love to have a good time and as such are not always in mint condition come race day. However for both this season something has clicked and the competition have been left in their dust. Anyway here's what people have been saying about the WSL season thus far:
1. Too much emphasis on the size of the wave: Would you rather see a set wave surfed safely or a medium sized wave torn to pieces? Size of wave is mentioned no-where in the criteria yet barring disaster the biggest wave of the heat will always net 8-9 points while if you want to score above a 6.5 on a set wave you'd have to pull off a backflip mctwist. What this means is a lot of sitting around waiting for the sets,and very little incentive to try anything risky.

2.The rookies are legit: The start of the year always brings speculation over how the freshman will fare against the incumbents. This year they have torn it open. Four of them sit inside the top 10 after the first two rounds. The most promising to stay there are Connor Coffin and Caio Ibelli. Connor has a brutal power rail game and Caio has all the new-school Brazilian flair. I hope Stu Kennedy can use his time on tour to qualify for next year. Meanwhile Kelly has won one heat, and Medina has a pair of throwaway second last finishes.

3. Taj is retiring: Everyone's favorite surfer, the perpetually young Taj Burrow is calling it quits on one of the finest pro surfing careers after Fiji. While he may go down in history as one of the best never to win a title, he never morphed into a competitive robot, fostering a well earned reputation as one of the most fun loving cats on the tour.
