Artemis wins the TP52 class at HUBLOT PalmaVela

Posted on 18 April 2010 by Valencia Sailing

[Source: Artemis] ARTEMIS started out well and maintained the lead right through to the end of Palmavela giving the Swedish team their first TP52 trophy of the season. From here, the crew will try to return home before heading to the RC44 Austria Cup which starts on 29 April.

In a nice breeze of up to 12 knots, and an airplane free sky, the Hublot PalmaVela regatta held the last races of its 7th edition. All the fleets were on the water today, with Maxis and TP 52’s running their coastal races in the charlie area. In the TP52 class Artemis was the predictable winner, but Cristabella managed second, whereas Magic Carpet 2 won the Wally class. The Mini Maxi class didn’t provide any surprises either, and was won by Container. In the J-80, Platú 25, RI1, and RI 2 classes, Peraleja Golf, Iberdrola, Cuadernos Rubio and Ciudad de Ceuta were the winners.

In the TP52 class the victory was for Torbjorn Tornqvist’s Artemis, thanks to her consistent performance throughout the regatta. The surprise of the day was provided by John Cook’s Cristabella, which won the two races, kicking Matador out of the second place in the final classification. The Argentinians have lacked consistency throughout the regatta, and in spite of their good results on the third day, at the end they could only manage a third place. We must not forget that this is the TP52’s first race after the new rule’s modifications, and that the teams are still fine tuning their boats.

Next stop for ARTEMIS is the RC44 Austria Cup which starts on 29 April.

Final Results

TP 52
1. Artemis (Tornqvist), 1+1+1+1+2+3+2+(3): 11
2. Cristabella (Cook), 2+2+(4)+2+3+2+1+1: 13
3. Matador (Roemmers), 3+3+2+3+1+1+(3)+2: 15

TP52 Artemis maintain lead after three days of racing in Palma

Posted on 17 April 2010 by Valencia Sailing

[Source: Artemis] The wind had trouble establishing itself again today, and the postponement flag had to be raised at around 1100 this morning. Finally, in around 8 knots southwesterly wind, the race committee gave the start signal of the first race of the day, at 1343.

In the TP52 class Matador had two very good races, with skipper Guillermo Parada at the helm, finishing both of them first, ahead of Artemis, with Paul Cayard calling tactics and owner Torbjorn Tornqvist at the helm. The Swedish team had been unbeaten until today, when they placed second and third, but benefited from the discard after race six, which helps the team hold onto first position in the overall standings.

Matador is second, just one point ahead of John Cook’s Cristabella, which is third. Weapon of Choice, former Matador, closes the classification, but the final standings will not be decided until tomorrow.

Four out four for Artemis in HUBLOT Palmavela

Posted on 16 April 2010 by Valencia Sailing

[Source: Paul Cayard] A very good day on Artemis today with three more bullets. It wasn’t as easy as it looks from the score line. In fact, in the last race we were third at the last windward mark.

The wind filled in from the southwest at 8 knots around 1230.

In the first race we had a good start and led all the way. Matador was second, Weapon was third Cristabella fourth.

In the second race, with the wind now at 10 knots, we wanted the left and got the pin end start. We flushed Matador out pretty quickly but could not cross Cristabella who was to windward. We tacked and crossed behind them by a length but later up the leg, the three of us came together about even. After some close tacks, we pinned Cristabella to the left with our starboard tack right of way and then tacked on Matador, who was ducking the two of us on port, to lead around the first mark. We went on to win by more than a minute over Matador. It was fun to mix it up.

In the third race we had our hands full. Matador led for most of the race with Cristabella and us close behind. On the final run, Matador and Cristabella got in a battle and gave up a bit of distance to us. The wind had lightened off to 7 knots so the gybes were expensive. We managed to win the race right on the line.

The boat seems to be going well so a nice job by our shore team and Captain Nipper.

Tomorrow’s forecast is for rain and the sailing instructions are calling for short coastal races.

Artemis leads the TP52′s in Hublot PalmaVela in very light winds

Posted on 15 April 2010 by Valencia Sailing

[Source: Artemis] Artemis is in Palma racing in her first TP52 regatta of the 2010 season. The Palmavela event is not part of the Audi MedCup circuit, but it is an opportunity to test the boat after the winter modifications. The TP52 Class made some rule changes allowing bowsprits, square top mainsails and a lower crew weight limit.

Today was the first race day and the wind had trouble establishing itself. Finally, at 1430 we started the only race of the day in 8 knots from 220. We wanted the left so we started at the pin end of the line and controlled the left. We had a nice lead at the first mark but had a problem getting the jib up at the leward mark. We went around with no jib and Cristabella crossed ahead half way up the second windward leg. They tacked on us a few times, but we closed in on them at the second windward mark to round right on their stern.

As the wind had gone quite a bit right, we then proceeded to do a gybe set. This got us on the long board coming down to the finish. At the line we beat Cristabella by one boat length. Matador was third and Weapon of Choice fourth. There are just 4 TP52′s here. Racing continues through Sunday. There are two other classes of boats, with some big Wallys racing. The forecast for tomorrow isn’t much more promising, but hopefully a light seabreeze will fill in in the afternoon.
