Mark Lyttle emerged victorious – 2018 Laser Masters World Champion!

CONGRATULATIONS MARK – Incredible achievement leading a spread of great results by QM sailors in Ireland.

After a touch and go battle with light winds on Dublin Bay, both course areas delivered a final race to round off the Laser Masters World Championships sponsored by DLR on Saturday afternoon (Dublin, Ireland – Saturday 15th September, 2018). The eleventh race did little to alter the leaderboards with emphatic class wins in all but two fleets.

Ireland’s Mark Lyttle emerged victorious in the Standard Grand Master class despite placing seventh in the final. Sweden’s Tomas Nordqvist had been challenging for the top spot but had a 14th place that dropped him to fifth overall leaving the way clear for race winner Carlos Martinez of Spain to take second place, just two points shy of Lyttle in first. … read more

NSSA Success for the QM Youth Squad 23rd – 29th July

 

Last week the QMSC Youth Squad arrived at Datchet Water Sailing Club for the National Schools Sailing Association Regatta ready to have a fun week of sailing, little did they know that we would come away triumphant. all our sailors did exceedingly well with our greatest achievements in the Topper fleet were we came away with 7 of the top 11 places much to the frustration of other teams.

A fabulous week was had by all both on and off the water and it’s fair to say Steph is a very proud team manager.

Most of those sailors are now away at national and world events and we hope their success continues.

QMSC Saturday Club Visit to Weymouth 2018

The fabulous summer weather continued for the Saturday Club trip to Weymouth on 14th and 15th July. This great event was organised by Peter Caselton, aided by Andrew Craig and there were 12 QM members in all, based out of the Andrew Simpson Sailing Centre (ASSC). Weymouth was a glorious picture postcard under the blue skies, with crystal clear water.

The light winds in the morning were followed by a good sea breeze in the afternoon.  Saturday saw all the group close–quarters racing in the new RS Zest single handers and to their delight some beating the ASSC instructors.

On Sunday there was the opportunity to try something, heading out in the RS Ventures and Laser Stratos beyond the harbour to Weymouth for a sandwich lunch in the bay.

As for the social side of the weekend, there were ‘nautical debates’, lots of laughs, but if you want to find out about why they were given a ‘dispersal order’ by a local pub, you’d best ask them …

The Weymouth Trip is a firm favourite in the Club’s calendar, so watch this space for the 2019 dates and details.

10 top tips – making the most of your Open Day

How Queen Mary Sailability Pushed The Boat Out – by Terri Pilgrem and featured in RYA news 

More than 40 people tried sailing as individuals or as part of groups at Queen Mary Sailability’s Push The Boat Out Open Day in May.

So how did they engage with new groups and individuals so successfully that many have or are planning to return to sail at QMS again? QMS Open Day Co-Ordinator, Terri Pilgrem, has their 10 top tips…

1. Our Open Day as part of a wider marketing plan

We didn’t start off planning an open day. Instead, we were looking at how we could make QMS more visible to local people and groups. We decided to offer free ‘taster’ sailing sessions, which could show people what a fantastic facility and activity we have at QM.

2. Professional appeal

We wanted to have a distinct identity so people and organisations would immediately recognise and remember us. We created a central QMS email address for all incoming queries. I designed a new QMS logo and stationery and produced two flyers – a generic ‘Let’s Go Sailing’ flyer and one promoting the Open Day.

To save on printing, we created a low-resolution version of the PDF that could easily be emailed or posted to social media. I also set up a QMS Facebook page. For all the promotional material it made sense to use photos showing good weather and happy participants. We were then ready to start promoting QMS.

3. Think creatively about how to reach people

Back in January I compiled a target list of about 50 groups and organisations to contact, coming at it from all angles and really thinking about where disabled people go and where they find their information. This included researching local disability groups and partnerships, UK-wide charities and organisations, disabled sports organisations and businesses providing services to disabled people.

I entered our event on search databases that the disabled community uses, such as “WhereCanWeGo.com”, Open Sessions, Active Surrey, etc. The list also included, for example, sport/event venues where there is a dedicated Access Officer who can display promotional material in the disability access areas of these stadia, as this presents an opportunity to put your name in front of lots of people.

4. Find your champions in organisations and groups

You need to reach the key workers, therapists or clinical practitioners, the people making decisions about the care of or looking for things to do with their clients, or the people who deal with communications/social media.

Once I had my contact list I started at the top and just started ‘cold calling’. I kept my message short, simple and clear; saying who I was, that we were running an open day where people could try sailing for free and could I speak to someone who might be able to help share our flyer. I found people were really happy to help. The telephone may be the old-fashioned way of contacting people but it works. It’s an opportunity to inspire a response with your own enthusiasm for your subject.

5. Other people marketing you is very powerful

Some organisations kindly offered to put our flyer in their membership newsletter or on their website or Facebook page. It’s helpful if a disabled individual or group can see the information is coming to them from an already trusted source. Even the big national organisations and charities have local branches and groups, and the communication channels within these organisations work very effectively. Sharing on their social media enabled people from our area to learn about our event, but raised wider awareness of sailing in general too.

6. Keep in touch

Follow-up but don’t chase. Like, share and comment on what organisations are posting on social media to gently remind them about you, or tag them in activity you’re doing that might be relevant to their audience.

7. Relationships can be mutually beneficial

Be conscious a reciprocal arrangement can work between you and another organization. For example, organisations like Gwennili Sailing Trust, Access Adventures or Sportability provide adaptive outdoor/sport adventure programmes so, with that in common, we can promote their opportunities to our members too.

8. Advance booking is preferable

Know in advance who will be taking part on the day. We wouldn’t have turned away individuals who turned up to the Open Day without booking, but knowing who was coming ensured their expectations were met and we had enough resources, including catering, available on the day.

We organised the day into hourly sailing slots between 11am-4pm. When an individual or group contacted us, they were assigned a slot of their choice. This was their sailing time – they could stay on or come early and have a look around and some lunch, which we had set up beside the water, which kept everybody together and made it a very social ‘buzzy’ day.

9. Set expectations

Pre-event communication was key for participants and volunteers. If a participant was unsure about what boat they’d like to sail in, I sent them a sheet with photos and short description of our three boat types to choose from Longboat, Yeoman or Hansas, with a proviso that they could change on the day if we had the boats free.

Once people began expressing an interest I set up a Master Schedule which contained the following… Time Slot, Name, & Contact Details, Name /
Disabled Sailor, Boat, Helm/Crew, Disability Hoist,  Disabled Parking Source

I initially spoke to the participant, and followed up with an email confirming the details they had given me, and the time slot they had chosen, reminding them the event was weather-dependent and we would confirm everything closer to the day. Our next contact with them was two days before the event with a weather report, map/directions, confirmation of time slot, clothing to bring, etc.

It meant they were clear what to expect and we were clear we had the resources and capacity to manage the day successfully. All the boats were in the water by 11am, ready for the first participants to arrive and go sailing in their pre-assigned boat with their pre-assigned crew, followed by lunch organised by our Secretary, Dee.

10. Investing for the future

The positive outcomes of organising and hosting an event like this are not simply the people taking part and their return to us, but the relationships formed with other people/ organisations throughout the process, relationships, which no doubt will be fruitful in the months and years ahead.

Mark Lyttle wins Laser Masters Nationals and Eurocup

The UK Laser Masters circuit gathered on Friday 22nd June 2018 in Hayling Island SC for their primary event of the year, the three-day Masters Nationals and Eurocup event.

Report by Niall Peelo (with assistance from Mark Lyttle)

In excess of 100 sailors, not just from all over the UK but with visitors from Ireland, France, Germany, Switzerland, Belgium, Netherlands and USA, counted 59 in the Standard and 48 in the Radial fleet. Notably, the entry included two Legends (sailors over 75 years) in Roger Williams and Ninian Eadie, and no less than 15 Great Grand Masters (over 65 years). Many of these visitors were no doubt hoping for a little last-minute practice for the Masters World Championships which takes place in Dublin in September where entries currently exceed 300 boats.

The fleet was greeted by superb Hayling weather: sunny, warm and a great forecast for the more sun and heat… but one thing was lacking in the forecast – WIND!

At the briefing, Race Officer Tim Hancock was hopeful that some wind would make an appearance, but having looked at four different forecasts he felt there could be as little as 4kts or as much as 12kts, and the direction was variable. Not very encouraging…however, as competitors left the briefing hopeful of a suntan, a few beers, good food, and maybe winning a spot prize or two, there only seemed an outside chance of some decent sailing. One competitor had even floated the idea of Masters go kart racing competition, given the forecast!

Nevertheless, the fleet launched in a light southerly sea breeze. On reaching the race area, all were surprised that there was in fact enough wind to race. The efficient and professional race management team from HISC wasted no time in getting set up and were straight into a sequence.

Standards

Rupert Bedell lived up to his rhetoric of being highly competitive without having trained at all by leading at the first mark in a steady 8 knot wind until he was passed on the final run by Mark Lyttle and a very fast-finishing Nick Harrison, and Thomas Mueller from Germany.

As the wind built for the second race, the Masters eased into their toe-straps and it was Lyttle being chased by Alan Davis, former champion (multiple times), Mueller and Stuart Hudson. Bedell let his exuberance go this time with a UFD for an early start.

The final race of the day was enough to ensure most of the fleet had aches and pains by the end, but it was Tim Law putting the pain of the serious knee injury behind who closed Lyttle throughout the race after the latter got away at the start.

Radials

The Radial fleet had a general recall before getting a clean start. After a very close first beat, it was Ian Gregory who led at the first mark, followed closely by Ben Elvin with the rest of the fleet in hot pursuit. The wind built steadily as the race progressed. Ian and Ben were battling it out at the front with a sizeable lead over the rest of the fleet. Elvin managed to work past Gregory to win the first race. This was to be the first of many wins for Ben. Roberta Hartley managed to keep ahead of the remaining boats to finish third.

The sea breeze continued to build and race 2 got under way with minimal delay. Elvin continued to show his superior speed with a huge lead at the first mark. Niall Peelo was a distant second, just ahead of the rest of the fleet. This is how it continued until the finish (Elvin being so far ahead, no-one could actually see him!). Andrew Byrne finished 3rd.

Most sailors were sceptical that there would be any racing at all on the first day, so by the start of race 3 most were surprised that the wind was at 15kts. Yet again Elvin led, Andrew Holdsworth (formerly from Yorkshire but now living in San Francisco), found the conditions to his liking and finished 2nd with Ian Jones in 3rd.

The Masters circuit is much more than just sailing. Back on-shore the social side kicked off. Most sailors started in the bar, where there was nothing but admiration for the race committee after three fantastic races. HISC is a great location for a big event as at 7pm the restaurant opened and the social continued over food. Spot prizes for day 1 included David Binding winning a Southeast Sailboats voucher. The irony is that David has bought almost everything Southeast Sailboats sell, so Max Hunt will need to design something new just for him!

There was also a very interesting presentation from Michael Beckett (British Sailing Team) on what life is like training and competing in regattas around the world. Many of the Masters sailors were amazed to hear people actually train for regattas!

The social for some moved back to the bar, and after closing time the stragglers were last heard singing and playing guitars on the beach late into the night. The Masters fleet really does cater for everyone!

Day 2 for many started with a hangover. The standard cure for this seems to be one of HISC’s fry-ups followed by a full day’s sailing. Three races were scheduled, and despite lighter winds and tricky conditions, the race committee managed to deliver the three races.

Standards

Five Standards were black flagged in the first race but it did not stop Tim Law leading from start to finish. The second race of the day caught many sailors out with a big right shift, but not Bedell, who led at the first mark closely followed by Chris Whalley until Lyttle and Law eased past with Bedell slipping back. Unlike the Radials after them, the final race saw a return to more predictable conditions with the usual suspects up front.

Radials

This day will be remembered for several reasons; the day that provided tricky choppy light conditions; the day Elvin didn’t win a race (Byrne managed to break the winning streak to take race 6 after a very tricky shifty short race); and the day of the black flags. Nine sailors fell foul of the black flag, but Gareth Edwards was obviously influenced by the World Cup managed to score a hat trick of black flags!. Max Hunt, fresh back from Kiel Week and not wanting to let Gareth feel alone, also scored a black flag hat trick.

There was also a protest, just to tick all the boxes a top regatta must have!

On arriving back at the beach, the fleet were greeted by Joel from Laser Performance, one of the event’s very generous sponsors, with his wife Sian who were handing out free beer and cider in the dinghy park. This kick-started the social for Saturday evening which culminated in more spot prizes and a draw for the Wildwind holiday won by Allison Hutton of the Radial fleet.

The Laser Masters fleet claims to be the only sailing fleet with its own band, and after the prize draw, sailors were treated to tunes from Tony Woods (saxophone), Rupert Bedell, David Trout, Gareth Edwards (guitars) and David Freeman (vocals). A true “Laser Performance”… we hear the Isle of Wight festival are looking to sign them up for next year, provided there is no clash with a Laser event!

Day 3 started warm with no wind. The Race Officer postponed, confident that the sea breeze would kick in. The breeze did kick in, and the sun continued to shine for the remainder of the races.

Standards

Lutz Hirsch from Germany won Race 7 by a country mile with Roger O’Gorman finally finding his pace in second from Whalley. Tony Woods didn’t let his performance the previous night get in the way of his best result of the weekend in fourth just behind Andy Le Grice and ahead of Michael Hicks, the leading Great Grand Master.

Radials

Yet again Elvin led the way around the race course, with Hartley and Ann Keates taking up the next two places. Rob Cage, UKLA Vice Chairman, finally found his mojo and posted two 4th places. After Black Flag Saturday, it was a welcome change to cross the finish line and see the white board showing no sail numbers, instead ‘1/2 time England 5 Panama 0’!

Once ashore, the prize giving was held. Thanks to such great sponsors and organisation of the whole event being led so superbly by Gareth Edwards, some commented that they had never seen so many prizes at an event! Thanks go to Laser Performance, Southeast Sailboats, Tideway LLP, Rooster, Fernhurst Books and Phoenix Marine, as well as several sailors in the fleet who have helped fund new perpetual trophies.

Mark Lyttle (1st overall Standard fleet) summed up the event by saying it had been superbly run both on and off the water, and to spread the word because Laser Masters sailing is “the best gig in town”.

The next UK Masters event takes the fleet to Pevensey Bay SC 1st and 2nd September 2018, and promises to be another superb event. A number of the Masters also plan on heading to Plymouth for the UK Laser Performance National and Open Laser Championships 21st to 27th July 2018 – the event promises to include great racing and social for Laser sailors of all ages.
