Hello all Hansa, Liberty and SKUD Sailors,

Are you thinking of attending the Hansa Class World Championships at Medemblik in the Netherlands in June next year? If so you should already have discovered the event website http://www.2016hansaworlds.com/ where there are full details of the event, including accommodation possibilities. As for all such events it pays to get accommodation booked early especially if you need an accessible room.

Note that British competitors will need to arrange to take their own boats to the event so unless you own your own boat you will need to ask your Sailability group whether you can have a suitable boat for the week and work out how to get it there. Putting a Hansa 303 or 2.3 on a roof rack is quite practicable and cuts down on ferry fares. Check that it will have insurance for use in Europe and appropriate 3rd Party cover as required by the Notice of Race. If the expense of the whole event seems a lot, why not seek sponsorship from local charities or businesses.

As the HCA(UK) committee has suggested forming a “Team GBR” with a team shirt for sailors and helpers to buy, will all intending participants please get in touch with us,

Lindsay Burns -

l.burns49@btinternet.com

and/or Richard Smallwood -

richnang@btinternet.com

as soon as possible. When we have an idea of the number of participants we will suggest a shirt design and give an estimated cost which we will keep as low as possible.

We both have experience of the 2010 World Championships at Rutland, the 2012 event in Sydney, two European Championships and other events overseas, and will try to answer any questions you may have. The 2014 World Championships was cancelled so next year’s event has special significance. It is unlikely to return to Europe until 2022!

Anyone entering before 31st December will save 40 Euros on the entry fee, so it's worth acting soon.

He
re’s hoping for a strong GBR representation at Medemblik,

Lindsay and Richard
HCA(UK) and IHCA Committee Members

Chairmans Invitation

I would like to extend an invitation to all Access class and SKUD18 sailors world wide to participate in the
Bruce Wake 2010 Access Class World Championships and SKUD18 International Championships hosted by Rutland Sailing Club, England from 4th to 11th June 2010.

Rutland Water is one of the largest man-made stretches of water in Europe and set in some of Britain's loveliest countryside. Conditions are similar to estuary sailing, with over 3000 acres (1215 hectares) of reasonably sheltered water but without the tides. Rutland Sailability is the longest established Access sailing club in the United Kingdom and has superb facilities for sailors with disabilities. More details can be found on the websites www.rutland-sailability.org and www.rutlandsc.co.uk.

Rutland Sailing Club, Rutland Sailability and the Access Class Association (UK) have considerable experience in hosting major events and have been hard at work, guided by the International Access Class Association, to organise the regatta and appropriate shore support facilities, to the high standards demanded by a World Championship. We have been very fortunate to secure sponsorship from the Bruce
Wake Charitable Trust, set up and endowed by the late Mr Bruce Wake who was a keen sailor until he became disabled. This has enabled us to defray some of the expenses and to keep costs to competitors as low as possible.

The Notice of Race, entry form and details of accommodation, boat chartering, regatta programme etc will be published on the ACA(UK) website 2010 Access Worlds Documents that has all the documents you need to monitor, attend and enter the 2010 Access Combined World Championships to be held at Rutland Sailing Club, UK. including Chairman’s Invitation, General Information, Notice of Race, Accommodation, Visa Information, Entry form, Fees form and boat Charter form. We will also post any amended documents on this sub-page. The second is entitled 2010 Access Worlds Newsletters that has all the Access Worlds Newsletters.

April 2009: Below are archive announcements for information

Access Worlds 2010 It may be necessary to limit the number of UK entries. For details read Richard's message below:

A message from Richard Smallwood (Chairman, Access Class Association (UK) and Chairman, Access Worlds 2010 Organising Committee):

To all UK Access Sailing Clubs, Organisations and individuals not attached to clubs:

Thank you to all clubs and individuals who responded to my request to let me know by 21 February about the likely participation in the 2010 Access World Championships at Rutland Sailing Club. We now have the responses from overseas Access Class Associations, as well as from the UK, and it is apparent that we may have to limit the number of UK entrants as the 303 two-person and 2.3 one-person classes, in particular, both have potentially large numbers from the UK.


Those intending to enter the 2010 World Championships are therefore advised that, if it is necessary to limit the number of UK entries, results in the 2009 TT series events and National Championships will be used as an indicator when making the selection of those UK sailors allowed to enter. It is therefore hoped that all those intending to participate in the World Championships will enter as many ACA(UK) events as possible in 2009 to both improve their racing skills and enhance their chances of selection.


I look forward to seeing big fleets at the TT meetings and the National Championships in 2009.
Richard Smallwood
Chairman, ACA(UK) and
Access Worlds 2010 Organising Committee

Richard Smallwood (Chairman, Access Class Association (UK) and Access Worlds Organising Committee" sends you the following message.

To all UK Access Sailing Clubs, Organisations and individuals not attached to clubs:
The organisers of the 2010 Access World Championships, to be held at Rutland Sailing Club from 6 - 11 June 2010, are keen to know the number of likely participants, and a questionnaire has been sent to all the overseas Access Class Associations asking them to declare their likely numbers.


We also need to judge the "best guess" of UK participants and so you are asked to complete and return the attached questionnaire To me by 21 February 2009 on richnang@btinternet.com
. (Note this questionnaire is for UK clubs and orgs only international information is available on the following link
www.accessclass.org/default.asp?Page=25885 )

To help you, the draft Excel programme is also attached and you will see that it is possible for those with the stamina to participate in a two-person and a single-person class. There is likely to be a 50% supplementary entry fee for those entering in two classes. The formal Notice of Race and Entry Form should be available in August 2009. If you need additional information to help with deciding your numbers, please contact me as soon as possible.

If there is unlikely to be anyone from your club entering the event, please send a simple "Nil Return" email message making it clear who is sending it in.

I look forward to hearing from you by 21 February 09,

Richard Smallwood
Chairman, ACA(UK) and
Access Worlds Organising Committee"

2010 Combined Access Worlds Announced

The next Combined Access Class World Championships will be hosted by the Rutland Sailing Club in the English Midlands, from June 6-11, 2010.

Rutland Water is one of the largest man-made stretches of water in Europe and set in some of Britain's loveliest countryside. Conditions are similar to estuary sailing, but without the tides – there is over 3000 acres (1215 hectares) of sailing area.

The Club’s thirteen acre site on the South shore of Rutland Water boasts seven concrete slipways with four pontoons and connecting walkways, permitting easy launch and recovery of all boat types. It has extensive onshore boat storage and boats its own sailing school, chandlery, accessible accommodation and social facilities. The Club is recognised by the RYA as one of its key centres for disabled sailing and training National Teams.

Rutland Sailing Club has welcomed the opportunity to host the Combined Access Class World Championships.

“We are thrilled to have been asked to host the 2010 Combined Access World Championships”, said the Rutland Sailing Club Commodore, Nick Clarke.

“The Club house facilities are first class, with a lift and ramp access to the first floor for bar, dining and balcony areas. Our waterside equipment is second to none. And we boast 7 safety ribs and up to 4 committee boats enabling us to run up to four different races
on different parts of the water. Our pontoons, gangways and slipways are all wheel chair friendly. We also have our own in house sailing school and chandlery on site”, said Mr Clarke.

“We look forward to meeting sailors from all over the world in 2010 and know they will enjoy their time at Rutland Sailing Club”, he said.

Access Liberty start at the 2007 Worlds in Canada


Chairman of the Access Class Association in the UK, John Morley, is delighted the Association has been asked to arrange the 2010 Combined Access World Championships.

“I know that all the members of our Association will do their very best to provide the visiting sailors with the best sailing at the biggest and best inland sailing club in the UK. We are all looking forward to hosting the best Access sailors in the world”, he said.

“However, I do need to tell you that you will have to sail very well to beat our lot! Please come and prove me wrong”, said Morley.

This is the second combined World Championships for the popular Access classes and there will be single and two-person divisions for the Access 2.3 and 303, along with the single person Liberty and two-person SKUD18. The structure of the 2.3 and 303 fleets will enable relative newcomers to the sport to also compete in this significant event.

Access 2.3s racing at the TT Swarkestone, UK

There are over 1500 Access Class boats sailing around the world. The Access 2.3 is an ISAF International Class, whilst the 303 and Liberty are ISAF Recognised Classes. Access 2.3 and 303 fleets throughout the UK and Europe continue to grow, with the majority of boats used in Sailability programs. The UK Access Class Association has run a traveler series for several years, attracting a growing number of keen racers.

The SKUD 18 is the two-person equipment for the 2008 and 2012 Paralympic Sailing Competition and is regularly sailed on Rutland Water. The largest, fastest and most spectacular of the Access Classes, the SKUD will be a feature of the Championships.

“The Association is very excited about this announcement”, said International Class Association President Terry Peek.

“I have sailed at Rutland and the venue and facilities are magnificent”, he said.

“We look forward to seeing many nations being represented at the 2010 Worlds. The Association is delighted that the Rutland Sailing Club will host the event and we are sure it will be a great success”, said Mr Peek.

Those with sharp eyes will have noted that there are two errors on page 6 of the Sailing Instructions as published on the website. On the top line “LIBERY” should be “LIBERTY”. Half way down the page, delete LIBERTY so that the line reads “ACCESS 303 TWO PERSON. These errors will be corrected with a notice on the Official Notice Board.

Registration, Measurement, Charter Boats and Free Sailing PracticeFor those arriving early at the venue, the first priority should be to register and then present boats for inspection and measurement by the inspection team. Liberty sailors will also need to present themselves for weighing in normal sailing clothing. Sailors with charter boats booked will wish to find their boats and take them over.
For those who want to get afloat, arrangements have been made for safety boat cover for practice sailing as follows:

Friday, 4 June, and Saturday, 5 June, from 10:00 to 15:00

It is not yet confirmed that hoist operators will be available for these periods. Shore support helpers are unlikely to be available, so sailors will need to arrange any help needed to rig and launch boats.
On Sunday, 6 June, sailing practice will not be permitted before the briefing at 11:00 and formal Practice Races at 14:00 (two-person classes) and 16:00 (one-person classes).

Results Service during the ChampionshipsFor those supporters not at the sailing club but wishing to keep up with the results day-by-day, provisional results will be published daily on the Rutland Sailing Club website – http://rutlandsc.co.uk/cms/index.php– Open Results.

Newsletter Number 7 dated 17 May 2010

Request for Shirt Sizes - Urgent
The Organising Committee has agreed that all sailors and full-time volunteer helpers should receive an “Access Worlds” polo shirt. This is being handled by Pauline Harrison, email:- .......... – who need to know chest sizes by 19 May. Please do not confuse her with the other Pauline in the Race Office.

Please send her your name and chest size in inches or in metric without delay. Do not send S, M, L, XL etc. as every shirt manufacturer has a different idea about sizes.


Equipment InspectionAll the boats taking part in the Championships will be inspected in accordance with appropriate Class Rules and weighed before they race. This will take place by the gantry near the Bosun’s workshop at the eastern end of the Sailing Club grounds on 3, 4, and 5 June. Full details, including a site plan, will be given at Registration.
Particular points to note are:
• When presenting boats for inspection and weighing, all the equipment that will be on the boat when racing, including any batteries and servo equipment, must be available. The mast should be unstepped, or easily removable, and the keel in place.


• Lifting slings for boats will be provided. Own slings may be used if preferred.


• If it is found that a boat does not comply with class rules, the competitor will be told why and given the opportunity to make any necessary changes. It is therefore advantageous to present boats for inspection as soon as possible after arrival. For chartered boats, assistance will be offered to put the boat in class, with the exception of own sails provided by the charterer.


• For the Access Liberty class, Sailor Weight Equalisation is specified in the Sailing Instructions. Sailors will therefore be weighed as in Access Liberty Class Rules dated April 2010, sub-paras C.5.2 a) and b). If a personal sling is used, it should be brought to the weighing. Personal weighing will probably take place adjacent to the Race Office.


• Sails must be presented for measuring & inspection at the venue notified at Registration.


Space on Hull for Event Sponsors’ LogoAll competitors should ensure that the reserved area required by ISAF Regulation 20 is available for the Sponsors’ Logos sticker which is 40cm long by 15cm high. For Access dinghies this is the area near the bow up to 1.2m back from the bow on both sides. The sticker should be applied as near the front and as high as possible under the gunwhale. For SKUD18’s it must be in the area up to 1.37m from the bow and applied as above.
Where a boat has other sponsorship signs near the bow which cannot easily be removed or covered, competitors should seek advice from the Chief Equipment Inspector, which may be to abide by Regulation 20 and remove the offending stickers.

Cash whilst at RutlandAll competitors and helpers coming to Rutland Sailing Club should be aware that, due to its rural location, the nearest cash machine is about 5 miles or 8 Km away. Please ensure that you bring with you enough Sterling cash for immediate requirements, including meals bought from the club kitchen, as debit or credit cards (or foreign currency) cannot be accepted.
Entries to DateWith late entries there are now 83 entries from 10 countries. See Access Worlds Entries to Date for the full list.

Newsletter Number 6 dated 28 April 2010

Entries to DateWhen entries closed on 24 April there were 80 entries from 10 countries with 27 requests for chartered boats. See Access Worlds Entries to Date for the full list.

Evening Meals during the EventAll competitors are automatically booked in for the Opening Dinner on Sunday, 6th, the Barbeque on Tuesday, 8th, and Closing Dinner on Friday 11th June. Some helpers and supporters have also booked these meals. As numbers are critical for the two dinners, no additional requests can be accepted.

On other evenings, the kitchen will be open, but those wishing to have their evening meal at the Sailing Club will need to book these by the end of the lunch period on the day. Full details, including evening meal times, will be notified to all participants on registration. On Thursday, 10 June, meals must be taken before 7.30pm so that the kitchen staff can cater for the club members who race on that evening.

Special Dietary Requests
All sailors and helpers who have already booked evening meals or packed lunches must advise any special dietary requirement – vegetarian, gluten free etc. – as soon as possible to the Race Office, access2010........... . No notification, no special meals!

Equipment to bring
For chartered boats, competitors are required to bring their own sails correctly marked up as required by the Notice of Race Amendment 1, unless special arrangements have been made.
Competitors are also required to bring their own Personal Flotation Devices (PFDs) with permanent buoyancy as notified in the recent amendment to the Notice of Race. Those who need transferring by hoist will also need to bring their own slings.
Helpers who will need to go onto the pontoons must also bring their own PFDs or they will not be allowed to assist on pontoons.
An additional item for those boats with batteries for servo control systems is a Battery Charger which can be used with a UK electrical socket. Batteries will have to be removed for recharging at overnight accommodation.

Newsletter Number 4 dated 15 March 2010

Entries to Date61 entries have now been received but still only 2 SKUD18s and no 2.3 full-servos. See Access Worlds Entries to Date for the full list which will be updated weekly.

Requests for Charter
Although eleven Access 303Ws and eight Access 2.3s have so far been requested for charter, there are still a few more boats that could be made available. Requests should be submitted as soon as possible and not later than 31 March. They will be considered on a first-come-first-served basis. Remember that competitors in charter boats are expected to bring a sail or sails with them, correctly marked in accordance with the Class Rules.

Organising Committee MeetingThere was a meeting of the Organising Committee at Rutland Sailing Club on Thursday, 11 March.

A number of decisions were made; the most important affecting competitors are:

• An overall outline programme was agreed and will be published on the website.

• The earliest that visiting boats can be delivered to Rutland Sailing Club is Thursday, 3 June, and all boats must be removed by Monday, 14 June. The Sailing Club is normally closed on Tuesdays and Wednesdays (not, of course, 8/9 June!). Any World Championship visitors wishing to use the facilities of the sailing club outside the period 3 to 14 June must contact the club manager, email:Manager@rutlandsc.co.uk.

• It is expected to arrange free practice sailing sessions with hoist available and safety boat cover on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, 3/4/5 June. Sailors will be expected to provide their own helpers. Times will be published in the programme and a newsletter when finalised.

• Tourist information for attractions in the area will be provided to all competitors.

• Liberty Weight Equalisation will be applied.
N.B. The Liberty Class Rules are in the process of amendment to simplify this process and a revised version will be posted on the IACA Website – Technical very soon.

• Numbers for the Opening and Closing Ceremony Dinners are critical and cannot exceed a maximum allowed in the Sailing Club building. Although all competitors will be able to attend, a limit may have to be placed on helpers and supporters. Again a first-come-first-served principle will apply, so applications should be submitted without delay. All the forms are available on the website.

• Only one application has been received for the use of a Support Power Boat. Any additional applications should be submitted without delay. The deadline is 1 April.

Newsletter Number 3 dated 3 March 2010


Charter Possibility now open to all
As there have been only 13 requests from sailors in non-European countries to charter Access 2.3s or Access 303Ws, it has been decided to make charter boats available to sailors from all countries. The new closing date for applications is 31 March. Charters are still restricted to manual Access 2.3s and Access 303Ws, as these are the only boats available in the UK at present. The Boat Charter application form is available at:
www.accessclass.org.uk/imgs/554AWC_2010_Form_Charter.doc .

Entries to DateFifty five entries had been received by 1 March and a full list has been published on the website. See Access Worlds Entries to Date It is disappointing that we have no entries yet in the 2.3 Full Servo class and only two in the SKUD18 class. If you intend to enter in these classes, please send in your Entry Forms.

Questions and Answers (Q&A)A first edition of three Questions received, and Answers from the Organising Committee, has been published on the website at: 2010 Access Worlds Q&As .

Servo Boats also compete in Open ClassesFollowing clarification from IACA, it is confirmed that boats competing in the Access Liberty and Access 2.3 “Full-Servo” divisions will also be eligible for prizes in the respective “Open” divisions. The two Liberty divisions will start together and so will the two 2.3 divisions.

Access Keel Weights – Get yours checked!Competitors are reminded of the keel weight limits introduced in the most recent version of the Class Rules. These are:
• Access Liberty: Minimum 70Kg; Maximum 80Kg;
• Access 303W: Minimum 30Kg; Maximum 35Kg;
• Access 2.3: Minimum 20Kg; Maximum 25Kg (Full Servo 35Kg).
It was noted that some Access Liberty keels used at the 2009 Access Liberty World Championships in New Zealand were under this new limit. Any keels which, when weighed at Rutland, are outside the limits will not be allowed in the 2010 World Championships.
If in doubt, get your keel weighed and corrected if necessary. There are no facilities to adjust keel weights at Rutland Sailing Club.

Revised Requirements for Access Class Sail NumbersIt has been decided to amend a requirement in the Notice of Race sub-paragraph 8.2 which reads: “Sails brought for use on chartered boats must display the sail number of a boat registered in the competitor’s country.”

The requirement now is:“Sails brought for use on chartered boats must display a unique number and include the appropriate national letters of the competitors.”

If in doubt about the acceptability of a particular sail number, advice should be sought from the Race Office, email: access2010 ............. .

Catering for Helpers and Supporters (repeated from Newsletter No 2)
There are limited outside catering possibilities in the area of Rutland Sailing Club and so all sailors and helpers should consider using the on-site catering facilities. An additional form has been placed on the website for helpers and supporters who are not linked to a particular competitor to give their catering requirements. This must be completed, and sent with payment, by the entry deadline of 24 April. The form can be found at:www.accessclass.org.uk/imgs/922AWC_2010_Form__Helper_Catering_Fees.doc .
