North American Championship June 23-28 • Youngstown Yacht Club • Youngstown, NY By: Chris Doyle As of April, the ice is gone, the war is over, we’re up to more than 20 entries, and we (co-chairs Vic Snyder and I) are, I suppose, lulled into a very false sense of security because of the excellent work of our committee chairs.

McChesney Wins Annapolis NOOD Regatta

If you haven’t signed up yet, you should consider it. Youngstown is a great fresh water venue for a regatta of this type provided that organizers have a good program, and we’re going to have the best! Here’s what is planned: •Up to nine races over four days •Entertainment, which is, for the most part, included in the entry fee. All the below is planned, but subject to change: Monday - Registration, free beer at the launching facility, opening ceremonies at Fort Niagara Tuesday - Party at the Club, karaoke/special drink night Wednesday - Mid-week recovery night (you’re on your own, although we are going to try to arrange a trip to Niagara Falls for the more adventuresome) Thursday - Cocktails at local YYC members’ homes, and then a picnic dinner in Youngstown Friday - Sit down banquet/trophy presentation Thus, other than Wednesday night, we plan on keeping you fed and watered for the duration. •Lots of free beer after the races •Top notch race management •Ample boats available for towing in from the race course if the wind dies •Frequent web updates from our on-the-water commentators for J/22 aficionados who want to enjoy the regatta vicariously

Letter from the President As usual, there are plenty of things to do, so we keep chipping away one at a time. This month, there have been a number of very positive changes we have been working on with respect to the International Class. We recently held the first of what will be many quarterly International conference calls. We had seven countries represented, and I think we layed a good foundation to move forward with several projects. As a result of our conference call, Peter U was elected to be the interim International Class president, until the new election in 2004. As you know, Peter was my predecessor as the U.S. Class president and was instrumental in some of the changes that have turned the Class around. His history with the Class makes him the perfect person to facilitate international communications and implement growth targeted strategies. Chip Carpenter is stepping down as the International Technical Committee chairman, a position he has held since the inception of our Class. We owe much of our one-design foundation to Chip’s rock steady technical anchoring. In order to maintain continuity and history, we have asked Chip Carpenter to assume the position of Councilor of Honor. Todd Hiller of Annapolis will be our new International Technical Committee chairman. Todd is a naval architect out of the Annapolis fleet. Todd will vacate his current position as the U.S. Class Technical Committee chairman, so the U.S. Class is seeking a candidate to replace him. A Technical Committee member from the Dutch Class (TBD) will join Todd’s committee in the near future. Preparations for the Worlds in Italy are pretty much final, and it looks to be a great event. There are still several brand new boats available for charter. What a great excuse to travel to Europe! On the home front, we held the first ever district governors’ conference call. The goal of this call was to get more feedback from the individual districts and what changes they would like to see. We had some pretty good ideas, such as more formalization of measurement procedures and prioritization of rule changes that need to be considered. I hope you all are planning on attending the North Americans in Youngstown this year. When we were there in 1995, we took over a fort and tried to rescue a deer that was swimming to Canada. They throw a great party there, and it is a wonderful venue for the NAs! Best Regards, Rob Johnston U.S. Class President

“Road to Rolex” Clinics to Prepare Women Sailors for September Competition Grants Offered to Clinic Hosts and Instructors To foster growth in women’s sailing, Rolex Watch U.S.A. has announced that it will sponsor several 2003 “Road to Rolex” clinics across the United States and abroad in preparation for the Rolex International Women’s Keelboat Championship (Rolex IWKC), scheduled for this September 28October 3 at Annapolis Yacht Club, MD. The organizing committee is accepting inquiries from organizations interested in hosting a “Road to Rolex” clinic. “Road to Rolex” grants are available to assist yacht clubs and sailing centers in providing access for women to the keelboat racing skills needed for competition. The clinic program is designed for oneor two-day formats and features an instruction manual developed by five-time Rolex Yachtswoman of the Year and 2004 Olympic aspirant Betsy Alison of Newport, RI. Alison has won the biennial Rolex IWKC five times and is an internationally recognized sailing educator and coach. “The clinics are designed to be adaptable to a group’s ability level, knowledge of the equipment and skills requiring attention,” said “Road to Rolex” coordinator Sue

Mikulski of Annapolis. “Where possible, the clinics will use the International J/22, the same boat used at the regatta, but if J/22s aren’t available, a similar keelboat will be used. We expect hundreds of women sailors, both newcomers and veterans of the regatta, to benefit from Betsy’s expertise.” For more information about hosting a “Road to Rolex” clinic, e-mail Mikulski at [email protected] or write in care of Annapolis Yacht Club, 2 Compromise St., Annapolis, MD 21401. Rolex IWKC is part of U.S. Sailing’s national championship series. Organizers are using the Internet to promote the regatta and provide information: www.race.annapolisyc.com/rolexkeelboats is focusing on Annapolis details; www.ussailing.org/riwkc has the official Notice of Race and Entry Form in PDF format, event history and news releases.

“Road to Rolex” Clinics Coming to Annapolis On June 8 and August 9, Annapolis J/22 Fleet 19 will host a two-part “Road to Rolex” women’s sailing clinic, in preparation for the Rolex International Women’s Keelboat Championship (IWKC) to be held September 28 to October 3 in Annapolis, MD. Well-known competitive sailor and U.S. Naval Academy coach Nancy Haberland of Annapolis will conduct the clinic, which includes a skill assessment and review of basic tactics for fleet racing. Haberland won the 1997 Rolex IWKC as crew and finished fourth at the regatta in 2001 as a skipper. Registration for the two-part clinic is $120 per boat. For one day, registration is $80 per boat. Additional coaches will be added to the roster under Haberland’s leadership. Each participant will receive a copy of the “Road to Rolex” clinic manual written by Betsy Alison, a five-time Rolex Yachtswoman of the Year and 2004 Olympic aspirant. Alison has won the biennial Rolex IWKC five times and is an internationally recognized sailing educator and coach. “The clinics are designed to be adaptable to a group’s knowledge of the equipment and skills, so all levels of sailing ability are welcome,” said “Road to Rolex” coordinator Sue Mikulski, owner/skipper of the J/22 Hard Headed Woman. For more information about the Annapolis “Road to Rolex” clinic, e-mail Mikulski at [email protected] or write in care of Annapolis Yacht Club, 2 Compromise St., Annapolis, MD 21401.

Middle Man

Maneuvers By: Terry Flynn

In 2003, the J/22 celebrates its 20th anniversary. In honor of this accomplishment, the U.S. Class will reprint pertinent articles from the previous two decades. This article is reprinted from the 1989 yearbook. Prestart Get game plan; check compass headings on both tacks and write down. At start Trim jib; keep an eye on all boats; keep helmsman advised of all boats that are trying to fill in the hole we are starting in, especially boats coming from leeward. Check on wind-i.e., which side of the racecourse has more breeze; keep track of competition and watch heel. One minute after start Advise helmsman on situations that are shaping up whether to foot or pinch; check compass and tell helmsman up or down and number of degrees (not 210-215, no one can remember that stuff ). Keep eyes on boats to windward to check on any shifts coming down the course and also keep thinking and find a clear lane to tack into. Remember, the second row of starters will still be in bad air, and by this time, the front row will be moving forward on them, making your spot easier to find. Remember, if you want to get on the right, you may have to duck a few boats. But if you’re in phase with the wind shifts, you’ll more than make up the extra distance sailed.

J / 2 2

Up the beat Read compass-i.e., “Up five” or “Down seven”; feed fleet information to skipper. Trim and ease jib in puffs and lulls - always let helmsman know as you do it. He or she may have another idea in mind. Keep your head out of the boat and look around. Stay in phase with wind - both direction and velocity. Near windward mark If you’re not the first one there, you try to find a “safe” place in line. Remember, if you try to lee bow the windward boat and don’t lay the mark, your options are extremely limited. Sometimes it’s better to be safe than sorry. Layline Pull pole up, throw spinnaker out of the hatch and ease jib out. Grab the spinnaker sheet, and then grab the guy from helmsman. Fly spinnaker. Leeward mark Look up the course and find which side has more wind. Get an idea of second beat strategy. For windward takedown when pole is tripped, try to free fly spinnaker for a few extra seconds as the pole is being stored. As you pull the guy back, let the sheet run. When you get the corner of the sail in your grasp, call for the halyard to be released. Pulling as much as you can with ling, hand-over-hand pulls, get the spinnaker into the hatch. Try to keep an eye on the mark so you know when to start to trim. Hopefully, the bow person can clear up what little spinnaker is left on deck. Trim the jib at an even speed so your sail is not over-trimmed before you actually round the mark. A quick check of the compass to find if you’re up or down and quickly get into phase for the next beat.

Moderate to light and shifty winds, in addition to a strong current on the Chesapeake Bay, dominated the Annapolis NOOD Regatta, held May 2-4 at the Annapolis Yacht Club. Peter McChesney, with his wife Margaret and friend Keith Murphy as crew, outperformed 50 other J/22s to walk away with the victory. Despite a 12th-place finish on the first day of racing, McChesney pulled out two bullets to win the event. The J/22 was the largest fleet at the Annapolis NOODS, which featured a record 273 boats from 17 classes. In an interview with Sailing World, McChesney revealed, “We made sure the rig was tuned right, matched sail trim to rig tune and the sea conditions, and adjusted rig tune between every race.” He was also one of the few who turned the current into an advantage. “There’s usually not that much current on the bay,” he said. “We used the current on the starting line to help us get some great starts. If you recognized that the current was strong, you could use it to your advantage and get some good starts, which is everything in a big fleet, especially in one with such good sailors.” Jim Hayes placed second in the event, 11 points out of the top spot. Greg Fisher, who won two of the five races, finished third. Lorie Stout, who won race four, finished eleventh overall.

F l e e t Fleet 19 Annapolis

Fleet 19 continues to grow in size thanks to the selection of the J/22 as the boat of choice for the Rolex International Women’s Keelboat Championship, the event’s new location in Annapolis and the selection of Annapolis Yacht Club as host for the 2004 J/22 World Championship. We currently have 54 boats in the local fleet, with another 12 on the eastern shore of Maryland. Thank you Todd A huge thanks goes out to Todd Hiller. Todd stepped down as fleet captain for Fleet 19 after many successful years. During Todd’s tenure, the fleet saw unprecedented growth and would not be the hotbed it has become without his tireless efforts. Todd will continue to be involved with the Class, as he has just been named chair of the Technical Committee. Updated Website The Annapolis website has gone through a thorough parsing with a new look and feel, and features new reports for regattas, NORs, photos and go-fast tips. Take a look at http://www.gromurph.org/j22fleet19/. Thursday Nights - J-Port Racing Starting May 15, J-Port of Annapolis again starts up its Thursday night racing series. This series consists of three races a night with the average turnout each Thursday being 29 J/22s over the last three years (you should be jealous). Short course racing at its best! E-mail the fleet from our website if you are in town on a Thursday, and we’ll set you up with a ride, beer and some of the best weeknight racing on the East Coast.

Fleet 20 Cleveland

New Fleet Members The J/22 fleet at Edgewater Yacht Club in Cleveland, OH welcomes several new J/22 owners. New to the fleet this year are Bill and Lynn Bruss, who purchased a new U.S. Watercraft boat, #1531; Chip and Kellie Schaffner, who purchased #1011 (we think they are going to name it 12); Alan and Sue Gilbertson, who purchased #674; and Connie Aguero, who will be helming #239, which is making its return to the fleet after undergoing a major renovation under its new owner.

N e w s Cleveland, the home of women drivers? The EYC/Cleveland fleet has 19 J/22s, of which 16 actively race, and six of the racing boats are helmed primarily by women skippers. Cleveland’s women skippers are quite competent and competitive. Several have competed in the Rolex Women’s International Keelboat Championship, and last year, one of the two ISAF World Sailing Games women’s teams representing the United States in Marseilles, France was from Cleveland. It is likely that all six women skippers will be racing in this year’s Rolex Championship: Heidi Adelman (#1083), Connie Aguero (#239), Lynn Bruss (#1531), Keven Eiber (#650), Sue McDowell (#1058), and Kellie Schaffner (#1011). Like many clubs, we have racing on Wednesday evenings and Sunday afternoons. But a unique and very successful organization in Cleveland is the North Coast Women’s Sailing Association, which makes its home at Edgewater Yacht club. The objective of NCWSA is to encourage women to become more actively involved in sailboat racing through regattas and clinics, and to create a spirit of good fellowship among members. The group was developed in 1995 to increase the experience level and number of women who participate in sailboat racing in Northern Ohio. In conjunction with Edgewater Yacht Club, NCWSA provides scheduled races on Tuesday evenings, a September regatta, educational meetings and social events throughout the year. Over the past several years, several J/22 owners have generously allowed their boats to be used (at no charge) to NCWSA. This unique opportunity for women in Cleveland to race and learn in an environment tailored to them has provided the J/22 fleet a great growth platform. It has to be recognized that part of the reason we have such a high percentage of women J/22 owners and skippers is due to the NCWSA and its supporters. Check their website for more information: www.ncwsa.net. Cleveland Race Week The One Design Series is June 21-22 and is ideally timed to be THE warm-up regatta for everyone attending the J/22 North Americans in Youngstown NY. It’s the weekend immediately before the NAs. Last year, 29 J/22s competed in Cleveland. For the returning “veterans” of the infamous blender party and the J/22 pavilion picnic, you’ll have a day-and-a-half to make the four-hour drive to NAs in Youngstown. The NOR is online at www.EYCweb.com. For those planning on going to the NAs who come from points west and south of Youngstown, you’ll have to drive through Cleveland anyway, so it certainly would make sense to tune up. Fun Fleet Activities In an effort to extend our sailing season and provide more opportunities for practicing and learning tactics and rules, several J/22 fleet members have been organizing remote control sailboat racing. The EYC basin (where we race the Optis, as those veterans of Cleveland Race Week know) provides a fantastic venue. And the outdoor bar assures great entertainment for spectators. The remote control sailing is open to all types of boats, but the preference seems to be for

F l e e t CR-914s. J/22 members Jim Andraitis (2), Mark Barker, Dave Kerr, Chip Schaffner, Peter U and John Zelli (2) all have CR-914s. Check Fleet 20’s website for more information: www.DrySail.com. J/22 Match Racing at EYC We are in the process of planning the first annual EYC J/22 Match Racing event. It will be held on Saturday, August 23. Our efforts are focused on making this a fun and inclusive event for all J/22 fleet members. This being our first year, we will not promote it outside our fleet. However, we welcome participation from the surrounding J/22 fleets. Further information will be posted at www.DrySail.com as the event draws near.

Buzzards Bay Regatta Plan now for the 31st Buzzards Bay Regatta (BBR) to be hosted by the New Bedford Yacht Club on August 1-3, 2003, at Padanaram in South Dartmouth, MA. The BBR is one of the largest and most exciting sailing regattas in the Northeast, drawing big boats from New England and New York, and smaller boats from around the United States and Canada. Approximately 400 boats are expected. Large PHRF boats, multihulls and small one-designs will be participating in at least 14 classes, some racing up to four times each day, for a total of more than 100 races over the three days. An estimated 1,200 sailors of all ages will captain and crew these boats. The mix of boats, ages and experience makes this regatta unique, competitive and fun. On-line registration is available through our website, www.BuzzardsBayRegatta.com. The BBR website provides a secured transaction through PayPal, making it simple and easy for participants to enter. Register on or before July 18 and take advantage of a $20 discount. It is particularly important to register early for the 420 Class, as it will have a limit of 110 boats. The registration for 420s, PHRF and multihulls closes on July 28. The Notice of Race and other details are posted on the website. Registration forms can also be downloaded from our website and are also available at the New Bedford Yacht Club. If you are a recent past participant in the BBR, a brochure and registration form will be mailed to you by early June. The BBR is organized by the New Bedford, Beverly, Mattapoisett and Low Tide Yacht Clubs. Some 300 volunteers drawn from these clubs and local communities will plan and staff the regatta. The seasoned race managers are among the most experienced in New England. Five committee boats and use of mobile computing and printing contribute to effective race management and scoring that is often completed before the racers reach shore. Mount Gay Rum, West Marine and Vanguard Sailboats will sponsor BBR ‘03, and a significant portion of the proceeds will be donated to Community Boating of New Bedford. Plan to join us in continuing a proud tradition and salute the sailors of the region.

N e w s Classes interested in holding a championship at the BBR should contact [email protected] For additional information, please visit our website at www.BuzzardsBayRegatta.com or contact [email protected] You can telephone or fax the BBR at 508-997-4664.

Fleet 44 Tawas Bay

Well, let’s see what’s new up here. The winter season in Michigan has ended, although we had winter storm warnings as late as April. You would think we get a ton of snow here, but being on the eastern shore of Michigan, we see very little snow as compared to the western side of the state or Buffalo, NY. They get the lake effect snow from the prevailing west/northwesterly winds. We are just too far east to get much of that. This year has been an exceptionally poor snow year for us and, as such, we will see the lake level fall again. Our little fleet up in paradise has five members: USA 048, Judd Lather; USA 275, Bill Coberley; USA 538, Donald Thwing; USA 782, Nick Seraphinoff; and USA 838, Chris Princing. We have some strong interest from two or three others, but a lack of used boats is hindering this expansion. We held our annual winter meeting to set the schedule, take care of new business and elect the following officers: Fleet Captain: Chris Princing Captain at the Rear: Nick Seraphinoff Treasurer: Donald Thwing Secretary: Jennifer Princing Web Director: Judd Lather The 2003 J/22 Eastern Great Lakes Championship will again be held in Tawas this year. The dates are August 16-17. Lodging and additional information is available at our website, www.tbyc.net/Fleet44/, and follow the link to 2003 EGLC. This regatta is a riot, just ask Sue Doyle! Hope to see you all at the following events: J/22 Canadian Championship, Oakville, ON - May 24-25 Cleveland Race Week, Cleveland, OH - June 21-22 J/22 North Americans, Youngstown, NY - June 23-28 YYC Levels, Youngstown, NY - July 26-27 J/22 Eastern Great Lakes Championship, East Tawas, MI - Aug 16-17 We look forward to seeing all of you on the circuit, and we are honored to be your host of the 2003 J/22 Eastern Great Lakes Championship held here in East Tawas, MI.
