Rule Change for Keel Weight Passes

A message from the Class President

It was a great experience to see how seriously engaged you all have committed yourselves and finalized the discussion and difficult jobs around the Class rule 11.2. The results for the Ballot to change Class Rule 11.2 and Appendix 1 have been audited by Farr 40 owner Kevin McNeil and  show an overwhelming support for both amendments ( 79% and 89%  respectively) . This represents a pivotal change for the Farr 40 Class further elevating its reputation as fairest one-design offshore class in the world. Our credo "the Farr 40 class is an area for owners to compete on even terms as helmsman both regionally, nationally and internationally" stands even truer.

Transfusion’s landslide NSW Farr 40 state title win

jan14 transfusion sGuido Belgiorno-Nettis’ Transfusion governed the Aberdeen Asset Management Farr 40 NSW State Title from the outset and after two final races on Sydney Harbour today was declared state champion in a landslide victory.

“We were pretty well into it on the scoresheet, we just needed to consolidate today,” admitted Belgiorno-Nettis. “Even though we didn’t take any bullets we sailed well in extremely difficult conditions with many opportunities for getting it right, and wrong.

“The team I’ve put together for the Rolex Farr 40 worlds have sailed with us on and off for years. I’d have to say it’s probably the best crew we’ve ever assembled.”

The challenge for Transfusion’s crew post the John Calvert-Jones nationals scheduled for 19-22 February, 2014, in Hobart is keeping the discipline and skills up throughout the Australian Farr 40 off-season. The Americans will be well into their summer season and racing right up to the class’ pinnacle event, the Rolex Farr 40 World Championship, 15-18 October in San Francisco.
