HELSINKI, FI (August 17, 2021) –  Official competition for the 2021 EVLI 12mR World Championship commenced today with two races held in the Gulf of Finland, hosted by Nyländska Jaktklubben, NJK.

In Race 1 keeping an eye to the sky paid off for the hometown Blue Marlin (FIN-1) team, skippered by Henrik Andersin (Kotka, FI) who won the first race in light and shifty winds. On the first weather leg, Vim (US-15) took an early lead after crossing Wings (K-15) on starboard with the 9-boat fleet in pursuit on the right side of the course. Blue Marlin (FIN-1) was mid-fleet when Andersin noticed “the clouds looked different than usual.” Anticipating a significant wind shift, he split from the fleet taking the left side of the course and was first to the top mark followed only by Flica II (K-14). These two held their positions downwind taking first and second place respectively followed by Vim (US-15) who finished third.

After a pause for course adjustments, one abandoned start and one general recall, Race 2 got underway in a building 15-17 knot breeze with choppy seas. Wings (K-15) helmed by Philipp Skafte-Holm (Copenhagen, DK), held an early lead until crossed by Vim (US-15) on starboard during the second weather leg. Vim (US-15) sailed to the right side of the course while Wings (K-15) continued to the left closely pursued by Jenetta (K-1) helmed by Thomas Müller, (Flensburg, DE) who eventually overtook them at the last mark rounding. Vim (US-15) skipper, Patrick Howaldt said: “It was very close racing in difficult conditions, the first three boats finished within one boat length of each other—this is a very closely-matched and competitive fleet.”

With combined score of 4 points Vim (US-15) won the day, Blue Marlin (FIN-1) finished second with 5 points and Jenetta (K-1) claimed third place overall with 7 points. Racing continues tomorrow (Wednesday) with 2 races planned. Follow the action LIVE (or recorded playback) via Sport Rec Race Tracker.

12MR FLEET IS ON THE MOVE; NEXT STOP HELSINKI!

STOCKHOLM, SE (August 8, 2021): Thirty-knot winds kept the Vintage 12mR fleet on the dock and Vim (US-15) at the top of the leaderboard when Day Four of racing was cancelled at KSSS’s Saltsjöbaden – Sandhamn Regatta for Pre-Worlds honors.

Day One started with a coastal race sailed in moderate winds from Stockholm to Sandhamn.  Nini Anker (N-1), Wings (K-15) and Vim (US-15) finished 1, 2 and 3 respectively just seconds apart after the nearly 3-hour distance race. Day Two’s shifty 5-9 knot breeze favored Vim who scored 1-1-(2) for the day with Nini Anker 2-2-(3) and Wings 3-(3)-1 close behind.

On Day Three, Vim (1-2-1-2) and Wings (2-1-2-1) swapped two firsts and two seconds each in the four windward-leeward races sailed. Nini Anker (3-3-3-3) held her ground in third place overall. Owner Christoph Avenarius said he is “happy with Nini’s boat speed, but plans to fine-tune crew performance with additional training prior to the Worlds.”

Mikael “Mikke” Stelander, skipper of Vanity V (K-5) whose team finished 4th overall noted: “KSSS made the correct decision to cancel the final day of racing; it is better to not risk breakdowns or injuries heading into the World Championship.”  When back in Helsinki, Vanity V’s Finnish crew hopes their local knowledge will help to move them up in the standings.

Vim (US-15) owner and Vice President of the International Twelve Metre Association Patrick Howaldt said: “The Pre Worlds were extremely well organized by KSSS with immaculate race management in interesting and varying conditions giving the competition the best possible training experience.”

Now headed to Helsinki, these 12mR crews can expect even more competitive racing when Blue Marlin (FIN-1), Jenetta (K-1) and Vema III (N-11) join them on the starting line at the 2021 EVLI 12mR World Championship from August 14-21.

STOCKHOLM, SE (August 5, 2021): The World Championship fleet of Vintage 12mR yachts arrived at Stockholm (SE) earlier this week after traveling more than 600 nm on their own keels from Flensburg and Copenhagen. The six 12mRs are now competing at KSSS’s Saltsjöbaden – Sandhamn Regatta for Pre-Worlds honors.

Day One featured a coastal distance race sailed in moderate winds from Stockholm to Sandhamn through the spectacular archipelago to the historic sailing center of Sweden’s east coast. The 12mRs raced among a fleet of Swedish classics which included: the 73-ft, SK 150 Beatrice Aurore (S-1) the largest surviving Skerry Cruiser and Ballad (S-236), a 63-ft Sparkman & Stephens offshore racer. Class newcomer Nini Anker (N-1) and Wings (K-15) crossed the finish line in tandem after a nearly 3-hour race with Vim (US-15) just 29 seconds behind.

On Day Two, 3 Windward / Leeward races were sailed in a shifty 5-9 knot breeze that suited Vim (US-15) who won the day 1-1-(2). Nini Anker (N-15) scored a close second for the day with 2-2-(3) and Wings (K-15) took a daily third with 3-(3)-1. Though not immediately revealed by their results, the Finnish-chartered Vanity V (K-5) team also raced very well, matching long stretches with the top finishers.

Patrick Howaldt, Vim (US-15) owner and Vice President of the International Twelve Metre Association representing the Northern Europe fleet said he is pleased to have 2 “new” 12mR programs in the Baltic. “Racing has become increasingly intense and close – it will be even more so in Helsinki when Jenetta (K-1) joins the competitive fleet at the 2021 EVLI 12mR World Championship.  He credited Vim’s early success in the Pre-Worlds to fine-tuning focused on improving US-15’s performance in light-air– conditions that he noted had previously proven challenging for this team.

The 103-year-old Thea (D-1), grand dame of the 12mR Class has added another 4 starts to her prolific racing history while keeping in step with her younger sisters on the racecourse. The exuberant Flica II (K-15) team, one of youngest in the history of the Class, has brought fun to the event both on and off the water. At the KSSS’s Lökholmen youth sailing center they entertained party-goers with an ad hoc 12mR rig-climbing competition and Zorba-style Greek dancing.

Two more days of racing will ensue in Sandhamn before the fleet sets sail to Helsinki, where they are eagerly awaited by Blue Marlin (FIN-1), owned by 12mR Worlds Chairman Henrik Andersin. Andersin, along with his Committee have planned a spectacular Championship regatta despite much uncertainty over the past 2+ years.

Meanwhile, Vema III (N-11) has embarked on her own epic 400+ nm Nordic voyage from Olso (NO) to the starting line at Helsinki.

If the first two days of these closely-contested Pre-Worlds are any indication, extremely competitive racing will continue throughout the remaining 2 days of the Pre-Worlds and onward at the 2021 EVLI 12mR World Championship from August 14-21 in Helsinki, Finland.
