What's New? By Tim Finkle: Our team is a bit spread out this week as activity is starting to ramp up. As we inch closer to spring, the schedule starts to get jam packed. Right now Rick Lenard is down in South Florida working the Miami Boat Show, Jim Egloff is in New Jersey picking up a new Beneteau First 25 and Don is in Rhode Island showing boats at the Alerion/USWatercraft plant. If you are going to be at the show this week and want to meet up with Rick to see a Beneteau, he would be more than happy to do that. Rick can be reached at 716-472-4702 or email@example.com
Be sure to check out the Stories & Articles section again this week. Adam Burns is back with Part 2 of his J88 Key West recap.
Where's the ice? By Rick Lenard: Here we are Feb 15th and there's no ice on Lake Erie. Next week's temperatures are predicted in the mid to high 40's! That means that the week of Feb 20th, 3/4's of the way through the month there will still be no appreciable ice on the Lake. It's looking like we will have an early spring, YEAH! What does this mean for you? Docks and moorings will be in sooner rather than later, working on your boat won't be like standing near the freezer door was left open, lake water temps will be warmer throughout the summer and should there be one last blast of winter, the skiers will have some snow from the lake effect! March 12th we set the clocks ahead one hour. It's highly unlikely that the lakes will freeze over so enjoy winter while you can because spring and boating is just around the corner! https://coastwatch.glerl.noaa.gov/modis/modis.php?region=e&page=1&template=sub&image=t1.17045.1537.LakeErie.143.250m.jpg

Mike Ingham Wins J24 Midwinters, Travis Odenbach was 2nd: From Sailing Scuttlebutt: Indian Harbour Beach, FL (February 12, 2017) – Mike Ingham earned his first J/24 Midwinter Championship, topping the 31-boat fleet after eight races. Going into the final day, Ingham and Travis Odenbach’s Honeybadger was initially tied on points but a scoring penalty was later posted, leaving Odenbach with 29 points and second place. Both John Mollicone’s Helly Hansen and Carter White’s Sea Bags Sailing Team also tallied 29 points, with Mollicone clearing the tie-breaker for third place. Will Welles’ Bogus captured the fifth position with 41 points.
When the wind failed to develop today, the results from the previous two days became final. “It was really hard to be consistent,” shared Ingham. “It was too shifty. If you got out of phase, it was really hard to get back.” Ingham, sailing with Tucker Gilliam (bow), Scott Smith (mast), Scott Griffin (tactics) and Paul Abdullah (trimmer), received the Lambert Lai Trophy, named in honor of the previous USJCA President who passed away in 2014 and also raced in the Rochester, NY fleet. Team Tarheel was previously led by Peter Bream, who died last October. Ingham has sailed the boat for the last two regattas. “The fun thing about this is it’s the Tarheel team, which was really Peter getting these guys sailing when they were younger,” explained Ingham. “I had this feeling that I needed to do him proud. And I don’t mean winning. I mean just being a sportsman because that’s the way he was.”

Mike Ingham of Rochester NY Named US Sailing’s National Coach of the Year: Mike Ingham has found success at multiple levels of sailing during a career that has included time as a high-level competitor, coach and sailmaker. The winner of over 20 continental and U.S. national one-design titles, Ingham made his name in the Olympic and grass-roots areas of the sport in classes such as the J/24, Thistle, JY15 and Tornado. Despite his diverse list of experiences in sailing, Ingham has stated that his most rewarding task to date came as the US Sailing's Team's Paralympic Sonar coach for the two-year period leading up to the Rio 2016 Games. Years of careful preparation, extensive overseas travel and general hard work resulted in a Para Sailing World Championship title and the silver medal at the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games for American Sonar athletes Rick Doerr (Clifton, N.J.), Brad Kendell (Tampa, Fla.) and Hugh Freund (South Freeport, Maine.).
Buffalo Canoe Club Hosts Championships: The BCC is known as one of the chief supporters of one design sailing in the region and has produced World, North American and National champions over a period of many years. They also turned out at least one Olympian, our good friend Jack Mathias (Flying Dutchman, 1976). Dave Starck says “We are always filling the ‘regatta pipeline’ with one design regattas in classes our members compete in. Looking into the future, in 2018, BCC is hosting the O’pen BIC North Americans and the Lightning North American Championship in 2019. We will continue to add other regattas to compliment these.
In 2017 BBC is hosting:
June 25-26 Lightning Canadian Open/Lake Erie Districts (combined regatta)
July 24-28 Club 420 North American Championship
August 25-27 Laser Master North American Championship
J/Fest 2017 Great Lakes Regatta: The inaugural Great Lakes J Fest Regatta is happening at ABYC July 20-21. Although it is a One Design Regatta we will be holding a PHRF division for those J boats that don’t have a full fleet for their own start. Please go to abyc.on.org for more information.

NOR for Great Race & U.S. match Racing Championship Qualifier:
U.S. J/70 Youth Championship Update: The first annual U.S. J/70 Youth Championship will take place concurrent with the J/FEST New England Regatta from August 11th to 13th on beautiful Narragansett Bay. The event will be hosted by the famous crew at SAIL NEWPORT, Newport, Rhode Island and hosted at their extraordinary facility at Fort Adams State Park.
Interest has been strong from various youth teams across the country; with crews already gearing up for the J/70 Midwinters in St Petersburg, FL, hosted by St Petersburg YC and also the Helly Hansen San Diego NOOD Regatta, hosted by San Diego YC in San Diego, CA.
The goal of this event is to help develop and build leading-edge junior keelboat sailing programs across America. The winning club of this event will get "free” usage of a fully equipped International J/70 one-design class sailboat, with sails and trailer, provided "free of charge” by J/Boats, to the winning sailing club and its membership for twelve months.
The U.S. J/70 Youth Championship (USJYC) is open to eleven (11) Youth Teams representing US Sailing recognized Sailing Clubs or Organizations. Sailing clubs may enter more than one youth team per event, but may only qualify one team for the USJYC championship in Newport, RI.
The 11 Youth Teams will compete on eleven brand new J/70 Class sailboats with class sails (main, jib, spinnaker) that comply with J/70 Class rules. The boats will be identically rigged and tuned at “base settings” that are recommended by the sailmaker.
Pontos Winches at Miami Strictly Sail Show at Bayfront: We recently sold a J88 to a long time customer and friend Bernie Blum. He had raced for a long time out of Buffalo and has since moved away. He wrote to us about one of his latest endeavours as a managing partner of a winch company called Pontos. We asked him to send us some information to share. I have personally seen these at a boat show and thought they were really cool and work very well. From Bernie:
"We are exhibiting with our partner Mark Wood of UK International in the next booth. (http://www.strictlysailmiami.com/show-info) -Booth # 1031. Pontos Winches are the only available genuine four speed winches. The winches shift gears first by reversing handle direction, just like any other winch. Then as the load increases, the winch automatically senses the higher load and clicks into a higher gear. The Grinder is for the racing sailor who values fast hoists and trims. The Grinder is five times as fast as a two speed winch while delivering the same power. The Trimmer is for the serious cruising sailor who wants to be able to use a bigger sail without extra effort. Both winches are mounted on our demonstrator, the Trimmer demonstration shows how one hand with 15 pounds of handle pressure develops 1200lbs of sheet tension. The Grinder pulls in 2 plus feet of line with every turn of the handle, spinning out line at a dizzying pace. Both the beefy competitive sailor and their more petite companions can show off their ability. The Pontos winches were developed in France. Since their introduction in 2014, they have won wide acceptance in the racing and cruising community. Notable successes include shorthanded trans-ocean races like the Route du Rhum and Transat Bakerly. Victories in those races demonstrate not just their ability to perform, but their durability. At the other end of spectrum, the leaders in the Six Meter class are using the Pontos winches to eke out those necessary precious few seconds which make the difference in one design racing. Our video (www.pontosvideos.com) shows the demonstrator in action and delivers a moving powerful testimonial from Thibaut, the winner of the 2016 Transat Bakerly. Lots more information on our website www.pontos-americas.com."

Stories and Articles:
Key West RW on a J/88 Part 2, by Adam Burns: As Key West Race Week fast approached Kris Werner and I discussed what the realistic goals were for the week. One of the biggest goals was to improve as a team as the week progressed. We knew from the list of competitors that this was going to be one tough fleet. We needed to get up to speed as a team ASAP. Fortunately, we all made it in on the Friday and we set a schedule to have two good productive days of sailing.
Saturday was a good day on the water managing our crew movements and weight placement on the rail. The breeze was nearing 15-20 knots and the boat felt very stable driving even when going through some steep chop. A key was to be in constant communication with the main trimmer, Kris. We would go through a few more reps, take a break, debrief a bit as a team on the water and once we felt pretty confident for the day, we went in to see what Sunday's practice would bring.
During the planning process for Key West, Kris Werner reached out to Farley Fontenot, who is the executive Vice President of Quantum Sail Design, to see if he had a few minutes on Sunday (he was coaching a very successful C&C 30 team) to zip on over and look at our setup while sailing. Farley motored right behind us in a tender for a few minutes and while motoring coached the “Hijinks” team, giving us some very useful tips to the whole crew. He went through all of the positions and that would prove valuable for the week. Farley also took pictures and shared them with us so we could see what he was looking at. A great 10-15 minutes on the water with Farley proved to be very successful. I have had the opportunity to be coached by Farley on other Quantum teams over the years and he a great resource as an on and off the water coach.
Another great resource for us was to setup a tuning partner for the week, not just a day or two. Kris reached out to his colleague Karl Felger who runs the Cleveland Quantum Sails loft and was sailing with Ryan Rhulman on the J/88 Spaceman Spiff. Knowing that this team has never lined up against another J/88, we met up on the water for some two boat training on Sunday. It is important to not only have a tuning partner, but one that you trust and that is open and honest with you. Kris was very open to Karl on Spaceman Spiff in regards to our settings and other relevant information and the same was true with Karl and their team. This proved to be huge for both teams as we motored out relatively close to each other each day and then devised a game plan pre-race. On one of the days, the teams knew it was going to be a shifty day so both teams decided before racing to sail on opposite tacks for 5 minutes and then tack. We both tacked simultaneously to see who would cross who. On this day the exercise helped not only to which side was favored but how the tide was running on our course.
As we motored out to the racecourse on Day 1, we had two solid days of practice under our belt. The theme of the day was to keep it simple. This also became our theme the whole week. Due to the limited amount of sailing we had together as a team we really focused on our respective jobs. Feedback was essential from all positions after racing each day, going in to have our wrap-up debrief. One question I asked each day to the crew from the drivers perspective, was how I can help the team? There was some great feedback. My thinking, being a driver, is if I can make someone's job a bit easier on the boat then I'm all for it. Communication from all positions was very important and proved to be all week long. The whole team was on the same page all of the time and it started the first day of practice.
The first few days provided some fun to be on the upper end of the # 2 jib. From a skippers perspective the rudder had a lot of bite. Again, key to making this happen was constant communication to Kris on the main. I made sure all the time to tell Kris how the rudder was feeling or how I was driving. Phil and Peter did an amazing job helping me navigate the short and choppy waves. Between Peter and Phil, it was great to hear the information we wanted on wind and waves. From this info, I would tell Kris what mode I'm going into for the waves and wind when driving. Kris along with Kevin would adjust the sails according to the conditions at that time, which made my driving much easier. Going downwind, Kevin also trimmed the chute and kept constant information flowing on how he felt. From the skipper’s perspective, I like constant information to help me drive. I would let him know if I made any tiller adjustments up or down. The boat had a lot of stability and we worked as a team to have a constant heel angle upwind and downwind. This was done a lot by moving our weight. As the week progressed, the wind started to lighten up. Wednesday in particular was a lighter day and we used the # 1 jib. Knowing we did not hoist this sail the previous days we made a point to leave the dock early. Again, team Spaceman Spiff and team Hijinks shared setup info on the water before racing started.
Every morning I was sounding like a broken record to the morning pre-race plan when I said “let's keep it simple”. I think even one morning Kris anticipated my comments and told the crew out to the race course “let's keep it simple, right Adam??”.
Again, as I said before, Proper Planning Prevents Poor Performance. Over the course of the week it was great to only think about the sailing aspect of the regatta. We did not have waste time lamenting about things that should have done months ago. The proper planning was done.
As for sailing the J/88, I loved driving it so much, let's just say the tiller did not leave my hand from the time we left the dock until we came in each day!
Team Hijinks really appreciates Spaceman Spiff being our pre-race training partner for the whole week. We also want to give a big team Thank You to Don/Tim/Jim at RCR Yachts for helping in all respects. But most of all to Laura for trusting the whole team and the shore crew to make it one unforgettable week!!!
RCR Buffalo Travelift Project, by Darren Wright: For the past two months you’ve been hearing about the upgrades we are doing to our travelift. The new winches we have installed are designed to offer both an increase in speed as well as safety. Andy Lopez and Ed Roseman have been tasked with this project and their expertise and attention to detail is evident. Both have backgrounds working in the aviation industry, so they understand the importance of doing things right. To get an idea of the magnitude of this job, here is a brief breakdown of the steps involved.
We unbolted the old winches, disconnecting all the hydraulic lines going to them. There are 4 winches total which allow us to lift each corner independently. The steel brackets had to be torched and ground off to make room for the new mounting platforms.
The new mounting platforms had to be welded by a certified welder, so we brought in an outside company. These platforms had to be welded in a specific place, so the correct measurement was critical. Once in place, we test mounted the winches to double check our measurements before the final welding process. Each weld had to have 3 layers of weld to be structurally sound, and then we could do the final welding. This was time consuming as the winches, weighing close to 1000lbs had to be lifted in place by crane each time.
With the winches now mounted up, we could start to replace the hydraulic tubing and hoses. We had decided that we would replace all the tubing and hoses as most are original. No point in having a weak link. The tubing had to be measured to correct lengths and most have custom bends in them. A hydraulic tubing bender was used to match the existing bends. Next we used a scissor lift to get to the top of the lift and remove the existing tubing. With the new tubing in place, they were able to get custom made hoses to join the tubing to the winches. All the tubing and hoses had to be joined together with special flare fitting. I think we may have purchased around 40 or so. These are time consuming and fatiguing to put together, as they need to be extremely tight to avoid leaks.
Once all the hydraulic lines and hoses where hooked up, it was time to flush the system and install new fluid. Now we needed to check for leaks and proper operation. This was the first time that we saw the new winches in action and we were impressed with the speed and quietness of these winches. This upgrade is going to make a huge difference in our lifting operation.
Right now the guys are putting the final touches on this upgrade. While we may have been able to use our existing winch cables, we decided to replace these while we had the scissor lift rented. This is a matter of removing the old cables and properly installing the new cables. The important part of this is making sure the attachment of the cable to the lift/winches is done correctly. Our lift uses a system with wedges that jam against the cable as the weight is applied. This is a critical step as you can imagine.
I couldn’t be more pleased with how this project is coming together. A special acknowledgement to Andy and Ed, for without them and their knowledge, we could not have taken on this job ourselves. I hope this information was interesting and it really showcases some of the talent that we have working at RCR.
