Race Officials`Exchange programme


After three days of exciting racing, the leaders are beginning to emerge from the fleets, as the EUROSAF Youth Sailing, European Championship passes the halfway stage and France edge into the lead in the Nations’ Cup Team Trophy.

A third day of perfect sailing conditions is making this championship one to be remembered not just by the competitors, but also by the volunteers who are organising the racing.   Today the winds have been in the region of 10 – 15 knots and the sunshine continues to pour down from wonderful clear blue skies. A fantastic advertisement for Portugal and the Algarve.


Fantastic sailing conditions for the first day of competition at the EUROSAF Youth Sailing, European Championship.

After a splendid opening ceremony yesterday evening, right in the heart of Tavira, the first day of racing dawned with absolutely clear blue skies and winds in the region of 10 knots, forecast to increase up to 18 knots during the afternoon. By late afternoon all classes had completed three races, allowing sailors and officials alike to enjoy the wonderful late afternoon weather.


The EUROSAF Youth Sailing, European Championship starts tomorrow, Monday 5th August, in the waters off the picturesque Portuguese town of Tavira, and continues until Friday 9th August, when the under 19 sailing champions of Europe will be crowned.

Many of the best young sailors in Europe have gathered in Tavira, Portugal, to compete in the EUROSAF Youth Sailing, Europe Championship, for which racing starts on Monday 5th August. Today, Sunday, there has been a practice race, in what were fantastic conditions, sunshine and 15 knots of wind! This is the second occasion EUROSAF have organised this multi-discipline Continental Championship for sailors under the age of 19 (on 31st December this year), and using the same equipment as that utilised in the ISAF Youth Sailing, World Championship.

Some 14 European countries have sent their sailors to compete in eight different disciplines, including girls and boys single-handed and double-handed dinghies, plus sailboards and a high performance dinghy. The equipment being used is the Laser Radial, International 420, RS:X sailboard and the 29er skiff.



Universities from Italy, France, Germany, Slovenia, Poland, Russia and Great Britain, met under the burgee of Associazione Vela Lago di Ledro, Italy, and at the invitation of the European Sailing Federation (EUROSAF), to compete for the European University Match Racing Championship. Nine teams competed for the title EUROSAF European Champion, on this the first occasion the championship has been held.

A unique aspect of the championship was that it also incorporated some two-boat team racing, a fairly new discipline within the sport of sailing, but one which is rapidly gaining a foothold. This sub-section of the championship was eventually won by the German team from Hamburg University, led by Florian Haufe, and all who competed recognised this as an enjoyable distraction and fun experience.

EUROSAF Youth Sailing, European Championships, 2013

EUROSAF, in association with the Federação Portuguesa de Vela and Clube Náutico de Tavira, announce that the entry deadline for the EUROSAF Youth Sailing, European Championships is extended to 30th June, 2013.

Following discussions between Federação Portuguesa de Vela and EUROSAF last week, it was agreed to extend the deadline for entries to the above event until 30th June. Entries to date have been steady, with some 80 boats and in excess of 100 sailors having registered, but it seems a number of countries, who have previously stated their intention of sending their young sailors, have yet to complete the formalities.

To enter your sailors, team and coaches, you first need to register with Tavira Sailing by going to www.eurosafyouthsailing.org Once registered, it is possible to enter on-line, so there are no forms to complete. It could not be easier.


EUROSAF Match Racing, European Open Championship, 2013

Sails of the White Nights – National Congress Palace Cup

Andrew Arbuzov is crowned EUROSAF Open Match Racing Champion 2013 and winner of the Sails of the White Nights – National Congress Palace Cup

Despite the best efforts of the wind, the Race Committee met the challenge of completing the Championship in St Petersburg on Sunday, to find the European Open Match Race Champion of 2013. In excess of 60 races were completed over the four days of the championship and the outcome was a win for Andrew Arbuzov from Russia.

To complete the event at all was a fantastic achievement on the part of the Race Committee, because, with very few exceptions, wind speeds seldom exceeded 10 knots and with the current of the River Neva, the boats made slow progress. There were times in the day when the wind almost disappeared altogether, resulting in much waiting around for sailors and officials alike. Having taken three days to complete the first round-robin stage, the race committee decided they had no option but to abandon the quarter final stage and jump straight to the semi-finals start on Sunday morning. Arbuzov, who had topped the leader board after the round-robin stage, was paired against his fellow countryman Sergey Musikhin, while in the second semi-final Simone Ferrarese from Italy was drawn against Eric Monnin from Switzerland. The wind, however, took control, and after completing just four races, with each crew winning one race, the Race Committee took the decision to cancel the semi-final and go straight to the final.
