Who are the contenders…?

Our friends in Annapolis are already working hard on preparations for the 2017 Worlds, but they still have time to keep a close eye on 2016. Here’s their run-down of the top contenders… In the meantime, you can subscribe to their email newsletter here.

2016 Weymouth Worlds Predictions

While those fortunate to be attending the event are making their final preparations, the rest of us can speculate how this Championship will go, who will win, and who will be up there at the end.

One of the interesting aspects of a 505 worlds is that it is normally the only opportunity each year to see how the top teams from each country go against each other. But this year the buildup to the worlds has included several of the favorites racing against each other at Europa Cup events. Some of the Australian and American teams are keeping 505s in Europe and are racing Kieler Woche as we write this report, and some raced earlier Europa Cup events.

Given these recent results, we have good indications of who is “on form” and who may not be.

So with tongue firmly in cheek, here are some predictions for who can win or place at the 2016 Worlds in Weymouth.

We look forward to seeing many of the same teams contesting the next 505 World Championship at Severn Sailing Association/Eastport Yacht Club, in Annapolis Maryland USA in September of 2017. More information on this event is available at: http://505worlds2017.com/. And you can sign up for an e-mail list to receive future updates on this event.

Women’s Teams:

The 505 has a strong tradition of female helms and some all-women teams.

Past 505 North American champions Carol and Carl Buchan jumped into their 505 for the recent 505 NAs, and they were sailing very well for a team that has not been training hard, but they are not going to Weymouth. Another top female helm is Meike Schomaker sailing with Holger Jess, but they are not going to Weymouth either (Apparently Holger prefers cold water and air and thinks Weymouth’s southern exposure and North Atlantic drift influence is for wusses).

Three teams that will be in Weymouth fighting it out are:

Tina Plattner/Dave Shelton RSA – This team raced well in South Africa. Dave has years of experience in the front of a 505 and has done many worlds, so will be adept at putting them where they need to be. They are going to be faster in the breeze than their competition for top female helm with Dave’s uhh … substantial advantage in height and weight.

Nicola Birkner/Angela Stenger GER – This team also has years of experience and many solid finishes. Look for them to be very strong in lighter or mixed conditions . Their ability to adjust the rig for varying wind strengths will keep them in the hunt.

Fabiola Wonterghem/Michael Wonterghem DEN – Having first crewed then switched to helm a few years ago, Fabiola gets faster and faster, and recently came second overall in Onsala (Swedish 505 Cup).

Overall:

Mike Holt/Carl Smit USA – Holtie has won the last two 505 World Championships, one with Rob Woelfel, the other with Carl Smit. While they were not showing top form at the recent North American Championship, they were on the pace when they won the Europa Cup in France. Recent surveillance has shown that Smit is taking his buildup seriously; he has been spotted cross training to increase fitness and lose some weight, getting closer to the fitness he has as a US Navy SEAL officer. While they were outside the top three at the NAs, they showed very impressive pace in the lighter conditions. You cannot bet against two time world champion Holtie racing with Carl Smit. They are fast in all conditions, and show few weaknesses. The Brits still consider Holtie to be one of them, and Holt/Woelfel/Smit have spent time working on setup and tuning with top British teams, but Holt/Smit will have USA on their P&B mainsail.

Dr. Wolfang Hunger/Julien Kleiner GER – In addition to being a three-time 505 World Champion already, Dr. Hunger is also a three time 470 World Champion. He is a consummate big fleet management style racer and almost never has bad races, always able to move forward in a fleet. This team will be one of the most consistent at the top, and it will take terrific pace, going the right way a lot, and some luck, to beat them. They just finished second at Kieler Woche (the final Europa Cup event).

Andy Smith/Tim Needham GBR – Perhaps the fastest of a strong British group, this team had brilliant pace at the French Europa Cup, winning several races though inconsistent, and just won Kieler Woche with a race to spare. They are not as consistent as Hunger/Kleiner or Ian Pinnell/Alex Davies, but clearly have the speed and ability to win multiple races at the World Championship, and with a little luck and consistency, could win it outright. A home court advantage could be just the little help they need.

Ian Pinnell/Alex Davies GBR – Excellent pace, a consistent team, and Ian is a 505 World Champion and has been at the top of the 505 fleet for longer than most others have been racing 505s. This team is showing excellent pace and consistency in the Europa Cup events and finished 3rd at Kieler Woche. Ian’s experience in the 505, knowledge of the rig – he is “the 505 guy” at Pinnell and Bax – and a home court advantage could put these guys on the top.

Mark Upton-Brown/Ian Mitchell – Past 505 World Champions, Upsidedown-Brown/Mitchell have been doing a serious buildup for this Championship after not being in a 505 for some time. Another team that has tremendous past experience and who may be peaking at just the right time. With a home court advantage, they could come out on top or in the top places.

Howard Hamlin/Andy Zinn USA – The ageless Howard Hamlin, racing again with Andy Zinn, continues to benefit from the “Team Tuesday” training program. This program is so strong that members were 1st and 2nd at the recent North American Championship in Bellingham Washington with Howard/Jeff Nelson finishing just behind training partners Riley Gibb/Reeve Dunne. Hamlin/Zinn won both the 2014 and 2015 NAs. Bet on Hamlin/Zinn to look dominant in the pre-worlds and then see if they can step it up like some other top teams for the Championship itself.

Mike Martin/Adam Lowry USA – the only person to have won a 505 World Championship as both a crew and a driver, Mike Martin knows better than almost everyone what it takes to win a 505 Worlds. Another member of the fabled southern California “Team Tuesday”, Martin/Lowry won several races at the recent 505 North American Championship, but were held out of the top positions overall by weaker finishes in some of the lighter air races. They may not have the consistency in mixed conditions, but if the breeze stays up these guys could win several races and stay in the top three in the rest, which is normally more than enough to win a 505 World Championship.

Jørgen Bojsen-Møller/Jacob Bojsen-Møller DEN – Olympic medalists in the FD Class with years and years of 505 experience, this ageless team continues to show excellent pace and consistency. The Bojsen-Møller/M2 rig has won multiple World Championships and completely dominates the German fleet in addition to being widely used in many other 505 countries. These guys know the rig better than anyone, as they developed it. Their tremendous experience tends to pay off the most in a Championship with mixed conditions. If Weymouth conditions turn “interesting” for a couple of races, look for these guys to show up at or very near the top of the scoreboard, and to be placing well even in more consistent conditions. They just finished 4th at Kieler Woche.

Stefan Bohm/Gerald Roos GER – que the Wagner music … another strong German team that has lots of training time and a number of very solid finishes in recent World Championships, though perhaps over shadowed by Hunger’s dominance until 2014. Bohm/Roos are particularly strong in breeze, so look for them to be fighting it out with Martin/Lowry at the front of the fleet if the breeze stays up and they can take advantage of their speed.

Jens Findel/Johannes Tellen GER – Yet another of the very strong German teams that are quite capable of winning a Championship. With Jens living in Texas they haven’t had much time to train, but they are always strong, particularly in breezier conditions.

Augie Diaz/Jeff Nelson USA – While this team does not have the time in the boat together of other top teams, and Diaz does not have an incredibly strong fleet to train with like Team Tuesday, or some of the German teams, Diaz is a world-class Star and Snipe and other class sailor who has been racing 505s for a while, while Nelson is a World Champion crew. When you look for sailors who can win World Championships in multiple International classes, like Diaz, you come up with a short list and it includes sailors like Poul Elvstrom. Diaz has sailed major 505 events with several of the top US crews. If you round the last leeward mark with these guys and they go the other way, do not ignore them!

Tyler Moore/Drew Buttner USA – Moore has been gearing up for the Championship racing several big events. Moore/Woelfel raced an excellent NAs, finishing 3rd despite challenges with a chartered boat. Both Moore and Buttner have years of experience at the front of the US 505 fleet with multiple World Championships experience as well. Moore/Buttner had a solid Kieler Woche. These guys don’t have a lot of time in the boat together, which may explain their two deeper race finishes, which took them just out of the top five. The rest of their finishes were very solid top placings that look like scores that could win them a World Championship, albeit Kieler Woche is a smaller fleet with less depth than a World Championship.

Jan Saugman/Jakob Karbo DEN – A two time world champion Saugman is either a very solid top ten or a World Championship winner. We’ll see how he is going this year, after a couple of races.

Christian Kellner/Martin Schohoeler GER – Yet another strong German team. They were winning the 2012 worlds until the last race, consistently at the top.

Michael Quirk/Rob Woelfel AUS – Quirkie has as much 505 Championship experience as anyone, with some very solid results over the years. This year he is teamed up with World Champion crew Woelfel. If Quirkie has the consistent speed and tactics of past years and Woelfel puts them where they need to be in the gate and first beat, these guys are going to be up there. Quirkie has spent a month away from home doing Europa Cup events and training; perhaps this is the year he finally does it.

Ebbe Rosen/Olle Wenrup SWE –Multi-time top three finishers (and Olle is a past World Champion) and two more ageless competitors who knows how to race a 505 very well at the front of a Championship fleet.

Philippe Boite/Florian Corbel FRA – A perennial strong finisher for France, Boite is never slow and rarely makes big mistakes. Particularly strong in mixed conditions, but looking a little off the pace of the top teams at Kieler Woche.

Terry Scutcher/Christian Diebitsch GBR – another multi-class racer – Terry is also a top Laser masters Worlds racer – who can put together a very solid series for a 505 Worlds.

Apart from seeing who is left at the top after the last race, we may have more useful data to compare the Superspars M2 and the Selden Cumulus and Alto? Are Bojsen-Møller sails on the M2 faster all round than Pinnell & Bax on a Cumulus? Are the Segelsport Jess moulded centerboards quicker than the Waterat HA480s? Are the Ovington/Selgelsport Jess 505s faster than the Rondars? Perhaps we’ll see.

Should be fun. Great place to sail. I think this my 36th 505 Worlds.
Its still fun and I am still improving.
Lucky to have some of the best 505 crews in the world to sail with me.

Howie Hamlin


The pre worlds had a variety of conditions ranging from 8 to 25 knots over 5 races.
All the big players were fuming it out at the top of the fleet.
When we sailed smart we did well. When we made mistakes we lost places. In the end 1 point separated the top 3.
The real game starts today. The forecast is for lighter breeze. We will see how it goes today and this week.

Report by Yachts and Yachting (http://www.yachtsandyachting.com/news/191236/SAP-505-Worlds-at-Weymouth-day-1)


The opening day of the SAP 505 Worlds at Weymouth fully tested the fleet of 140 boats in light airs. The two hour delay to allow the wind to build to the minimum 6kts required to start had clearly allowed some competitors to develop excess adrenalin. The first two starts had to be aborted as over eager competitors collided with the gate boat instead of passing cleanly behind it. The third start did get away without incident, but five competitors still managed to be classified as premature starters by going through the gate before the starting signal.

Any student of 505 history will know that the pre-worlds series is seldom a reliable harbinger of the main event, and this certainly proved to be the case in the first two races. In the first race Australia's Mike Quirk and Reeve Dunn got on the favourable side of a shift to the right and popped around the first mark in first place. Their lead was rarely threatened although defending it from the pursuing pack required all the Australian pair's full concentration. Second place was being hotly contested between Ian Pinnell and Alex Davies (GBR), the USA pairing of Tyler Moore and Andrew Buttner, and Tom Gillard and Richard Anderton (GBR). However, another GBR team, Nathan Batchelor and Sam Pascoe were picking the shifts well and climbing through the fleet, breaking into the leading group as the race progressed. At the gun Quick and Dunn were clear ahead in first with Pinnell and Davies runners up and Batchelor and Pascoe snatching third.

http://pressure-drop.us/imagehost/images/11759916430887641901.jpg

Conditions remained much the same for the start of the second race, but this time the fleet behaved itself at the start and filed behind the pathfinder team of Jan Saugmann and Jakob Karbo (DEN) in a neat and orderly fashion. When released from their pathfinder duties, the Danish pair opted to carry on out to the right hand side of the course, anticipating that the next oscillation of the breeze would favour that side. Saugmann, a two times World Champion in the class proved that he regularly anticipates such shifts better than most and rounded the top mark with an impressive lead. The wind then threatened to die away, prompting the Race Officer to call a shortening of the course at the end of the third upwind leg in order to meet the 505 class's preferred time target for championship races. Saugmann and Karbo crossed with a lead of nearly a minute and a half ahead of two German teams, Thure Gnadeberg and Aron Tellen and the all female pair, Nicola Birkner and Angela Stenger, who clearly enjoyed the lighter conditions.

http://pressure-drop.us/imagehost/images/90385014833239746293.jpg

On a day when many of the pre event favourites struggled, and others matched one good result with a dive down the fleet, the early leaders with their second place in Race 1 and an eighth in Race 2 are Pinnell and Davies, just ahead of the Danish pair. However, some of the other big beasts will be licking their wounds and determined to come out fighting tomorrow, when just one race is scheduled.

Portland may have its rough edges, and not just those of a geological nature, but together with its sister town of Weymouth, it put on its Sunday best to welcome the 140 boats competing in the SAP 505 World Championships. With just the one race scheduled, with a start time of 1300, the crews had plenty of time for polishing and tweaking in brilliant sunshine while eagerly contemplating the gradually building breeze.


http://pressure-drop.us/imagehost/images/65078253070570127718.jpg


By the time the fleet got to the race track in east Weymouth Bay, the course was being swept by a solid 12 - 14kt breeze from the south west. After the starting shenanigans of the previous day, the fleet fell in with the mood created by the near perfect setting and put on its best behaviour, giving the pathfinder Mike Quirk and Reeve Dunne (AUS) a clear run. As the pack advanced up the course the British boats of Mark Upton Brown and Ian Mitchell (9174) and Ian Pinnell and Alex Davies (9163) started to emerge at the front. At the first mark it was Upton Brown and Mitchell that just prevailed over Pinnell and Davies. Pinnell decided on an earlier gybe and, sailing a little deeper than Upton Brown and Mitchell, broke through to take the lead. Taking a different tactic, the USA pair of Mike Martin and Adam Lowry went for maximum speed by reaching high into the right hand corner which got them close to the two British boats at the leeward gate.


http://pressure-drop.us/imagehost/images/16506628621089852656.jpg


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8uFk2fByqH8


On the next upwind leg the British boats both went left, while Martin and Lowry went right. The British boats were vindicated when they rounded the top mark still ahead of the American pair. By now all three had opened up a commanding lead over the rest of the fleet and it was clear that the contest for top honours was now a closed shop. The wind was still building and the boats set off on the reaching leg in a coruscating display of spray, sparkle and speed against the azure backcloth. Martin and Lowry had the edge in this spectacular part of the contest and got through Upton Brown and Mitchell by the gybe mark, although Pinnell and Davies were still number one at the bottom of the course.

http://pressure-drop.us/imagehost/images/23325648535275384173.jpg

On the next uphill climb Martin and Lowry had confidence in their speed in the freshening conditions and decided to follow Pinnell and Davies rather than split tacks. This bought them into a position where they could tack under the British boat's lee bow, from whence they powered into the lead. They kept their composure on the final downwind and upwind legs to take the tape a good 200m ahead of Pinnell and Davies.


http://pressure-drop.us/imagehost/images/61310296301684927030.jpg


Slightly further back, the British pairing of Nathan Batchelor and Sam Pascoe showed that they could be the dark horse of this championship. They followed their good results in the light airs of Day 1 with a seventh place, making them the only boat to have recorded a top ten result in all three races to date. This means that they now stand in second placed overall, behind Pinnell and Davies and ahead of Saugmann and Karbo.

http://pressure-drop.us/imagehost/images/95381962485640303634.jpg


After yesterday's intermission which brought gale force wind, rain and low cloud rather than ice creams, hot dogs and the safety curtain, the show resumed today at the SAP 505 World Championships. Most reviewers agreed that this latest act was among the more memorable productions by the assembled 505 cast, and most actors and spectators left happy, even though the full scheduled performance had to be curtailed.

Having learned of the forecast the ladies and gentlemen of the Classic Fleet decided by mutual consent that the circumstances might prove too testing for their elderly craft. They preferred to take advantage of the opportunity of the live video stream of the main event from the comfort of the sailor's lounge at the Weymouth & Portland Sailing Academy. In the meantime, the cast of the world championship fleet enjoyed a brisk sail out to the stage, set in east Weymouth Bay beneath the chalk cliffs of the Dorset coast.

By the time the overture had started, the wind was steady from the south west with a speed of between 18 and 20kts, which gave the pathfinder boat of Howie Hamlin and Andy Zinn (USA) a brisk push to open the gate. Unfortunately, they had to provide an unexpectedly early encore when the gate boat was obstructed by a stray actor just under three minutes up the line, but the repeat allowed the cast to set about its business with earnest.

Andy Smith and Tim Needham (GBR) narrowly led the American heavy weather tyros, Mike Martin and Adam Lowry, at the first mark, although a tangle hoisting their spinnaker let the US duo past. Having established that there would be slightly less tide against them closer inshore, Smith and Needham went for an earlier gybe than Martin and Lowry. This proved to be a master stroke as the Americans stood on too long on the starboard gybe and lost significant ground at the end of the leg by having to drop their kite early and two sail into the gate. Smith and Needham had a comfortable lead at the leeward gate ahead of the German boats, Timon Treichel and Morten Roos (9101) and Wolfgang Hunger and Julian Kleiner ((9152).

http://pressure-drop.us/imagehost/images/35956109792140793533.jpg


By now the wind was beginning to build consistently above 20kts and the contra tide was creating a difficult short chop. However, this proved little obstacle for the leading boats, with the SAP tracking data showing the leading boats slapping and spanking upwind at almost 11kts. By the time their pursuers had rounded the windward mark, Smith and Needham had stretched their lead down the reach to almost 500m. Providing they made no mistake then this race was surely theirs, although with the wind now regularly gusting over 25kts significant skill and concentration were still going to be needed. Smith and Needham proved they were more than up to the task, going on to one of their more emphatic victories.

http://pressure-drop.us/imagehost/images/72957037971569323463.jpg

Behind them, second place was being hotly contested by three American and three German boats. The USA boats were those of Martin/Lowry, Holt/Smit and Hamlin/Zinn. On the German side Hunger/Kleiner and Treichel/Roos were joined by the renowned heavy weather blasters, Stefan Bohm and Gerald Roos. By now the skies had fully cleared and the sun was whitening the crests of the growing waves, like the gleaming teeth of a shark anticipating its prey. While the top group all avoided this predator, it was the Americans who proved they had the edge in the conditions, with Martin/Lowry, Holt/Smit and Hamlin/Zinn all following home Smith/Needham ahead of the German trio.

With the wind forecast to carry on increasing for the next few hours and with considerable attrition of the fleet having already occurred, Race Officer Tim Hancock wisely postponed the scheduled 7th Race allowing many elated but exhausted sailors and their boats respite before action resumes tomorrow.

The championship leaders heading into this race, Nathan Batchelor and Sam Pascoe (GBR) found that they did not quite have the horsepower of the heavier crews in the big wind, but still pulled through from a modest position in the forties around the first mark to finish fourteenth. This still leaves them clear at the top ahead of the final two days.

Breaking news: Mike Martin and Adam Lowry are the 2016 5o5 World Champions!

Report: Chris Thorne (http://www.yachtsandyachting.com/news/191376/SAP-505-Worlds-at-Weymouth-overall)

The final and deciding race of the SAP 505 Worlds may not have had the epic qualities of some of the earlier rounds, but still produced some fine sailing in Weymouth Bay.

Although Americans Mike Martin and Adam Lowry went into the race with a seemingly comfortable points margin of 22 points over the rest of the field, they could not afford any mishap. If their best currently discarded result of 30th in Race 1 came into play, any one of six rivals could overhaul them for the title.

After the heavy winds of the previous three races, the 130 starting boats had a gentle breeze of 6-8kts to take them on the hour long sail east out of Portland Harbour to the starting area. Since both the 10th and 11th placed finishers in the previous race had already performed the duty, GBR 9131 sailed by Nathan Bachelor and Sam Pascoe, opened proceedings as pathfinder. Not for the first time in this regatta, the start had to be abandoned due to an over eager competitor impeding the gate boat, but all boats behaved themselves at the second time of asking.

By now the breeze had developed a little more oomph, with 10-12kts across most of the race track, and oscillating through about 15 degrees. At the first mark, Philippe Boite and Corbel Florian (FRA) clearly found the softer conditions more to their liking and slipped round at the top of the pile ahead of Mike Holt and Carl Smit (USA) and Germany's Tim Boger and Markus Schoner. But the big question was the whereabouts of the championship leaders, Martin and Lowry? The answer was buried deep in the 30s round the top mark, thus putting their title hopes in significant jeopardy.

The fleet split down the run, and significant pressure differences across the pitch produced more place changing. At the bottom gate it was Holt and Smit that led marginally from Wolfgang Hunger and Julien Kleiner (GER). The German boat opted to take the opposite side of the gate to Holt and the left hand side of the beat. However, Martin and Lowry also chose some good lines to move up the fleet, rounding in the high teens, enough to win the championship.

The conditions were clearly to the liking of Hunger and Kleiner who outpaced Holt and Smit up the second beat to establish a lead that they would not surrender, although by now the pressure had increased to 14-16kts, giving some sparkling sailing down the reaching legs in the middle of the race. Behind the leading two boats, Timon Treichel and Morten Roos (GER), Tyler Moore and Drew Buttner (USA) and Malcom Higgins and Nick Johnston (AUS) all remained in the hunt for third place.

However, the real story involved Martin and Lowry. It was their championship to lose, but would the pressure get to them? Martin, uniquely a previous winner as both a crew in 1999 and as a helm ten years later, was keeping his cool and was advancing through the fleet. Hunger and Kleiner took the finish gun with a comfortable advantage over Holt and Smit, with Treichel and Roos third. However, the new SAP 505 World Champions Mike Martin and Adam Lowry proved their mettle by crossing in fifth place, a considerable achievement after being apparently buried on the first leg.

The Classic fleet also enjoyed the more benign conditions, with Michael Wilson and Phil Hardisty (GBR) completing a clean sweep of first places in the seven races held.

The day proved a fitting end to a superb championship, with the only bad weather falling on the lay day and with winds ranging from 6kt to 28kts on the race days providing a true test for the competitors. The world class race management by the team from the WPNSA, with rapid and accurate changes to the course axis and length to meet the changing conditions, also played a huge part in ensuring that a full schedule of races was held and that the racing was a fair as possible to all. The title sponsors SAP, together with the clothing sponsors Gul and equipment sponsors Allen all combined to make this a truly memorable event for all involved.
