Race Officials`Exchange programme



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.
