Day 3 and Day 4

Day 3 Press Release

Lewes, DE (September 24, 2014):   Racing was postponed today due to high winds and rough surf before all of the sailors except one team had left the beach.  The race committee was on the water and beginning to set a course in the lee of the breakwater near the Cape May Lewes Ferry terminal.  Winds were already near 18 knots and gusting to the high 20’s and were forecasted to go to above 30 later in the day. Multi-national champion Greg Thomas and John Williams (California) were the first to try to launch through the surf and promptly capsized just off the beach.  Racing was then postponed for the day when it was clear that most of the fleet would not be able to reach the racing area.   Two other hearty teams rigged up to test their skills against the elements with onboard video cameras that are part of a video production directed by Gary Jobson Sailing.  Mark Modderman and Tommy Butler (New Jersey) and Regatta Chairman Rich McVeigh and Sue Korzeniewski managed to get in a short sail with some blazing speed an only a few capsizes that will be sure to provide some exciting sailing video.  Gary Jobson was the featured speaker at the Mid-week dinner and entertained the competitors with stories from the last Americas Cup in San Francisco.   

 Racing continues tomorrow thru Friday and the forecast appears to be better for the sailors tomorrow. 

Day 4 Press Release

Lewes, DE (September 25, 2014):   Racing was postponed again today thanks to the early fall Nor’easter to that decided to form and not to leave Lewes Delaware today.  Winds remained well above 25 knots and seas were even bigger than yesterday.  Racing is scheduled to start early tomorrow for the last day of racing to attempt to get in more racing.

2014 TOTAL Fiji Hobie Challenge


Challenge Day 4 - arrival at Nasatoba Sandbank

Deborah Sue, Sunday, 24 August 2014

Day 1 of the TOTAL Fiji Hobie Challenge (Suva to Leleuvia) – 5th August
After a solid week of rain squalls and blustery conditions, Day 1 of the TOTAL Fiji Hobie Challenge presented us with perfect sailing conditions with 15 knots of south easterly winds with bright sunshine and slight seas. 
First leg, Laucala Bay to Taitauroga, across open swells was won by Epeli Lulusago and Saimoni Naura on a time of one hour and thirty nine minutes. The second leg from Taitauroga to Kaba Point was in perfect conditions with flat water and the fastest time taken by team Hong Kong, Tong Shing and Kit Tong. The third and longest leg from Kaba Point to Leleuvia Island was sailed under spectacular conditions with the entire fleet recording the fastest speeds of the day at an average of 20 knots. This leg was taken by the Fiji team, Grahame Southwick and Meleki Tuicaucau.
Overall results for the day had the Fiji youth team of Epeli and Saimoni 2 minutes and forty four seconds ahead of 2nd position team, Hong Kong. In 3Rd place trailing team Hong Kong by 22 seconds are the Australians, Murray Peterson and Vicky Elston. 
With four more sailing days to go for the TOTAL Fiji Hobie Challenge … anything can happen.
In the meantime, the first day of the BSP Oceania Championship will commence tomorrow with three fixed course races in the waters of Leleuvia Island Resort.

Day 3 – TOTAL Fiji Hobie Challenge

With a few rain squalls but conditions moderating the third day of the TOTAL Fiji Hobie Challenge saw the fleet depart in a downwind start in 15 knots and a 15 minute screaming reach across Motoriki Passage into the sheltered waters behind Caqalai Island and south through the reef passages and a fast downwind return to Leleuvia Island.
Three very fast rounds saw Southwick and Meleki advance to second position behind Tong Shing and Kit Tong, who had displaced the day 2 leader, Epeli Lulusago and Saimoni Naura. In third place were Murray Peterson and Vicky Elston.
Although the race was relatively short, the fleet experienced some dramas with the previous leaders, Epeli and Saimoni, executing a 10/10 pitch bowl on their first jybe and both, Grahame and Meleki as well as Katie Peterson and Haylee Williams losing their masts resulting in tow-backs. Overall a good day’s racing through interesting country.

Day 4 – TOTAL Fiji Hobie Challenge

The day commenced with another leg of the TOTAL Fiji Hobie Challenge which saw the fleet depart Leleuvia Island in a reach all the way to Caqalai Island and into Motoriki Passage through some very narrow reef gaps. Conditions were bright and sunny as the fleet crossed Motoriki Passage, only to find a severe wind/current chop midway. Only a couple of brave souls attempted to stay double trapped with Epeli Lulusago paying the price for the spectacular backward roll in the worst section. The rest of the fleet opted to sit in on the tramp through this washing machine to emerge unscathed and resume the screaming reach to Nasatoba Sandbank. 
The day finished with another Challenge leg, a high speed downwind gybing run in 15 knots back to Leleuvia Island. Close racing all day meant little change in the overall positions, which currently are as follows: 1st place Tong Shing and Kit at 3 mins ahead of Grahame and Meleki in second. Murray and Vicky at 4 mins behind Grahame and Meleki.

Day 5 – TOTAL Fiji Hobie Challenge & PRIZE-GIVING

With the BSP Oceania Championship finalised and tucked away, the final leg of the TOTAL Fiji Challenge was set for Saturday with the expectation of a brisk but gentle downwind run of 4-5 hours from Leleuvia Island to Laucala Bay. 
The Friday was taken up by some serious fishing, diving, snorkelling, whale watching and boat preparation. Saturday morning arrived with all boats prepared for an early departure and a nice sunrise and light shower. However, the Wind Gods decided that they were going to have the last say and instead of the usual gentle east-southeast, we were faced with a brisk southerly of about 12-15 knots. The fleet departed at 8.30 am, heading directly south to take advantage of the flat water just inside the reef and then turn west towards Suva.
What followed was a three and a half hour tacking duel between Murray, Grahame and Tong Shing, with the lead changing several times enroute. 
The race started with Tong Shing having lead of 3 minutes and 8 seconds on Grahame, who in turn, had a 4 minute lead on Murray; and each one attempting to eliminate the times in between and Tong Shing desperately trying to retain his 3 minute and 8 second advantage. 
At the end of a gruelling run that never developed at any stage into a downwind, the fleet finished the last 5 miles with a full on reach. 
Grahame did manage to finally overtake Tong Shing and hold his lead for the last 5 miles, creating the fastest time on record from Leleuvia to Suva (3 hours, 24 mins and 19 seconds; GBS average speed at 17.5 knots – max. 22 knots). Although Grahame managed to advance on Tong Shing by 7 seconds in this final leg of the Challenge, Tong Shing still held his lead of 3 minutes and 1 second to take the well deserved first place position, and with Murray only 30 seconds behind in third place.
The organisers are expecting to run the TOTAL Fiji Challenge and BSP Championship through the beautiful islands of the Mananuca Group, west of Viti Levu Island, in 2015. Details will be released as soon as possible as timely entries will be required to secure accommodation in this very popular area. We look forward to seeing you all, old and new … next year!!

BSP Oceania Championship Fiji

Deborah Sue, Thursday, 14 August 2014


2014 BSP Oceania Championship

Day 1 of the BSP Oceania Championship comprised of four races in front  of Leleuvia Island Resort in calm turquoise waters and 17 knot winds  whereby Team Hong Kong (Tong Shing and KitTong) proved themselves to  be the champions of the day when they won all the races! The Australian women's team, Katie Peterson and Haylee Williams, finished  2nd for the day's racing and the Fijian youth team of Kaveni Natadra  and Ledua came in 3rd.


Day 2 – BSP Oceania Championship

Day 2 of the BSP Oceania Championship saw blustery conditions with winds gusting up to 22 knots, but fortunately the fleet was able to find some good sheltered water north of Leleuvia Island to set the course. A total of six races were completed with Tong Shing and Kit Tong of Hong Kong taking six bullets in spite of dropping a jib on the last race. Second overall with a major come back were Australians Murray Peterson and Vicky Elston. Grahame Southwick and MelekiTuicaucau held onto their third position.


Day 3 – BSP Oceania Championship

Shortly after the Hobie Challenge race out to Nasatoba Sandbank and a hearty lunch, two more inshore BSP Oceania Championship races were held in a brisk 15 knots on flat water. In spite of a rolled cam in the second race, Team Hong Kong (Tong Shing and Kit) managed to retain their overall lead in the Championship. They are followed by Murray and Vicky in second, with Katie and Haylee in third places.


Day 4 – BSP Oceania Championship

The last day of the BSP Oceania Championship brought magnificent sunny weather and a steady 10-12 knot southeast breeze for the last three races off Leleuvia Island, bringing the total up to 14. There were some major movements in the final placings when Grahame and Meleki took three bullets and moved from forth to second, failing to overtake Tong Shing and Kit in first, but moving Murray and Vicky back to third.

That concluded a variable series and all competitors made it back to the beach for a well-earned rest and to celebrate Tong Shing’s  birthday and induction into the Grand Master ranks. Tomorrow is a rest day, and the whole fleet will spend the day fishing, diving, snorkeling, eating, drinking and relaxing on Nasatoba  
Sandbank. The fleet departs on Saturday morning for the last leg of the TOTAL Fiji Hobie Challenge, a five hour downhill run back to Suva.

With only three minutes separating the first and second positions, Tong Shing & Kit and Grahame & Meleki respectively, and Murray and  Vicky just four minutes behind, the last run is going to be hotly contested.
