Regata Interzonale al Velzna

Monday, 14 July 2014 20:35

Bolsena (VT) 12-13 Luglio 2014

L’etrusco del Velzna ha colto nel segno nel trovare il sostantivo che meglio ha definito l’atmosfera che ha regnato durante questo bellissimo week end trascorso al lago di Bolsena.

SERENITA’
Vi pare poco?

bolsena Gruppo

Anche se il tempo, più autunnale che estivo, ha messo del suo per rovinarci la festa, tutti i 17 partecipanti hanno fatto di tutto per trascorrere un fine settimana in pace senza polemiche, ridendo, scherzando, veleggiando (e con fin troppe abbuffate!). Complice di questa allegria è l’ospitale Velzna, con tutti i suoi volontari assistenti in acqua, a terra ed ai fornelli. Quindi, malgrado fulmini e temporali, pioggia e vento sostenuto che ci ha costretto ad indossare muta lunga in acqua e felpa con cappuccio la sera, sicuramente un’altra bellissima esperienza per la nostra Classe.
Chiamarla Interzonale forse è un po’ riduttivo considerando che da fuori “Interzona” c’era Antonio, Giuseppe, Fabio, Gigi e Roberto. Da fuori Lazio Sergio, Guido, Marco, Mario e Francesco.
Non a caso ho scritto solo i nomi, non sono solo partecipanti ma amici (scusate la romanticheria….) Come al solito la mia cronaca è scarna di contenuti tecnici.

Sabato 3 prove con vento da 12 a 18 nodi, onda formata che ha favorito splendide planate.

bolsena 2014 151

Avanti i 2 più bravi, Davide ed Antonio, con il campione di Civitavecchia con un passo in più sullo world Champion 2013. Per la piazza d’onore lotta Albano, Ciccotti e Schaffer con il “giovane” Geppo a pari punti con il pescarese davanti al nostro Triestino. Fortissimo con vento De Falco che regola la corsa a 4, con Baronio, Tezza e Fornasiero. I primi 2 leggeri, Bordini e io, a seguire. Poi Leonardi (fortissimo in bolina, meno nelle andature portanti), il grandissimo Salvi , Conti (Bentornato Marco!), il primo bravissimo Lupo (Marco) di Bolsena (con la barca del Megu), Vitolo (che da dopo il mondiale dello scorso anno mette qui per la prima volta in acqua la sua barca). Segue l’altro Lupo (Manuel) che paga la sua irruenza anche con un bel po’ di sfortuna ma che promette veramente di essere un grande protagonista in un prossimo rapido futuro. Marco e Manuel sono sotto l’ala di Paolo e sono e saranno ben seguiti.

Bolsena 302 prima Megu
La 302 "prima" con il nostro "Megu"

bolsena 302 ora
la 302 ora, con il giovane Manuel che ricalca la grinta del suo illustre precedessore

La sera di sabato, del “Maiale” sacrificale ne rimane ben poco (niente!), vino e cocktail e splendidi dolci delle “girls” del Velzna. Menzione speciale ed un colossale “Grazie” a Francesco ed alla sua Signora per il graditissimo omaggio di mozzarella di bufala campana. Ottima la mozzarella e splendidi loro. Il tutto fra risate, battute e a seguire partite a biliardino anche più interessanti della finale Brasile-Olanda che trasmettevano in olandese nel camping a fianco. Geppo ha provato a cambiarel canale e mettere “Peppa Pig” ma erano troppi gli “Oranges” in sala…

Peccato per domenica: niente vento e quando alle 15.15 abbiamo visto arrivare un altro temporale (che per fortuna ci ha solo sfiorato) abbiamo deciso di chiudere i giochi.

Grazie, veramente grazie a tutti.

Bracciano - Nastro Azzurro 2014
Source:  International Contender Association Italia
Wednesday, 02 July 2014 19:32

Bracciano (RM) 28-29 Giugno 2014 - il Bicchiere è mezzo pieno ...

…. O mezzo vuoto?

Osservando a mente fredda lo scorso week end la domanda è lecita.

Qui in quarta zona abbiamo disputato il classico giro del lago (sabato) e 3 prove valide per lo zonale (domenica). Oltre ai Contenderisti regolarmente iscritti alla classe del lago di Bracciano, c’erano anche l’etrusco Bordini e i 2 Lupi di Bolsena.

Sabato - Nastro Azzurro

Bicchiere mezzo pieno:
I contender per il quarto anno di fila vincono la regata a tempi compensati con Luca Polenta e con Paolo quarto e me sesto. In realtà i laser 4000 classificati secondi, terzi e quinti hanno saltato una boa…. Torna alle regate Mario Mambro!

Bicchiere mezzo vuoto:
Partecipazione alla gara ai minimi storici, su un totale mortificante di 56 monoscafi e 18 catamarani (almeno il 30% in meno rispetto lo scorso anno) i Contender partecipanti erano solo 5 (il povero Manuel Lupi ha rotto gli agugliotti del timone).

Domenica – 3 prove campionato zonale

Bicchiere mezzo pieno:
3 prove con vento più che robusto (fino a 18-20 nodi in raffica), 9 Contender(!) con la partecipazione (straordinaria!) del direttur L. Landò e del redivivo Granatelli. Una prova l’ha vinta Polenta, una Bordini(!!) ed una Baronio. La classe Contender era la più numerosa.

Bicchiere mezzo vuoto:
Luca Polenta dopo la prima prova è dovuto rientrare per problemi fisici, la giuria non è stata all’altezza e nel campo di regata c’erano Contender (9), Laser 4000 (4 scuffianti a più non posso), 470 (2), Fireball (0).
Insomma: nella crisi nera della vela (almeno in IV zona) un sorriso tirato per la classe Contender

 

Classifica Regata Campionato zonale:
1 - Baronio Riccardo pt. 6 (2,3,1)
2- Landò Luca pt. 9 (3,4,2)
3- Bordini Pietro Paolo pt. 11 (7,1,3)

Dongo (CO) 21-22 Giugno 2014
Dopo che l'italia del pallone è stata giustamente punita per un gioco che non suscita stimoli neanche ad un invertebrato passiamo alla regata che nel we scorso ha dato grandi soddisfazioni.
Iniziamo dall'attrezzatura (la mia): barca epox bonez, deriva corta, vela elvstrom, albero nuovo bonezzisailing diam. 45 in alto modulo (vero) con bending molto simile al CST, vero anche questo. Sabato non c'era giorno migliore per testare i materiali con vento molto rafficato e potente, due prove al giorno da 1,15 min l'una circa. Parto bene in boa mi porto a sx sotto la collina insieme al locale "gusme", purtroppo troppo sotto, infatti il vento ci molla e inzia una danza spastica tra 0 vento e raffiche in buono da 15 knt guardando quelli che avevano virato prima di noi sfrecciare tranquilli, giro la boa intorno al 4/5posto ma con regate così lunghe si recupera soprattutto di poppa, pompando come un matto. Nella seconda bolina riesco a portarmi sotto e nel successivo poppa-lasco ho Macchelli nel mirino e riesco a fregarlo poco prima dell'arrivo. Nella seconda regata, dopo una partenza esagerata, domino tutta la prova ma "bob mazza" si sveglia e stando leggermente più a sx negli ultimi 100 mt mi fotte in virtù delle raffiche che entravano da quel lato. Domenica partenza ore 12, sbaglio la partenza e "bob mazza" no. Inseguo, inseguo, fino a quando nell'ultima bolinetta prima dell'arrivo ingaggio un match race con bob e virata dopo virata mi porto sotto, ma non abbastanza. Primo lui secondo io. Ultima prova per vincere devo: vincere io o bob arrivare 4°. Parto male (c'erano anche i laser 4000, Moth, 49er insomma un casino...) arrivo alla boa di bolina 5° bob è davanti, ma non primo. C'è Macchelli indiavolato, Albano alla prova con una seconda giovinezza, e Daniel bello incazzoso. Di poppa tengo la sx del campo e recupero, ho bob nel mirino a 50 mt ma scuffio per una raffica incontrollabil, tiro su la barca ad una velocità impressionante e mi accorgo che il "prugno", a lato, è scuffiato a 180. Ora bob è a 150 mt. laschetto. bolina mi porto a sx a cercare bob e recupero di brutto ma un kite pensa bene di planarmi addosso strappandomi lo stick dalle mani e scuffio. Rialzo la barca e bob mi svernicia da sopravento. Sotto di me vedo Macchelli irraggiungibile Albano 300 mt Daniel dietro e bob davanti. inizia la poppa mi porto a sx del campo sperando di trovare quelle raffiche che mi avevano sbaltato prima, le trovo e alla fine della poppa bob passa da: davanti di 50 a dietro di 100. Penso: in questa situazione festeggio il compleanno con una vittoria ...scuffio... scherzo. Ho davanti a me Macchelli irraggiungibile, "geppe" a 100 mt ed allora decido di non mettere pressione al geppe anzi di rallentare bob. Ultima bolinetta copro bob e il resto è storia....
Bbella regata bel circolo, bella gente, auguri a tutti.... il calcio fa scifo e sono contento di avere due bambine femmine.

Classifica:
1- Bonezzi Luca pt. 5 (1-2-2-3)
2- Mazzali Roberto pt. 6 (7-1-1-4)

Notice of Race

Anyone planning on going to Mengeham Rythe open can download the NOR from the link below.

It’s a reasonably early start (tides dictate); and it's anticipated that boats need to be on the water @10.00 am.  The event is shared by the Finn class (separate starts of course); both lots of  sailors usually provide  a good atmosphere at this event.

And if anyone wants any further club or location advice etc, please contact: Noel Wright  tel 07941 221219, Email: Noel Wright
