Sail-World New Zealand: September 22, 2012

Welcome to Sail-World.com's New Zealand newsletter for September 22, 2012

A sleepy week in the sailing world came to a jolting end yesterday morning, with the announcement from Team Korea that Olympic Silver medalist, Peter Burling, would be taking the helm of their AC45 in the next round of the America's Cup World Series.

That triggered the easily answered question of where Team Korea's current helmsman Olympic Gold medalist, Nathan Outteridge was headed.

Sail-World's information was that Outteridge had offers from at least two teams and he took the Artemis Racing deal.

We cover and background both announcements in this edition of Sail-World.com's newsletter, and cover some of the implications.

The very clear winner out of this is Artemis Racing - who score heavily on a number of fronts.

For the individuals involved the stakes are somewhat more fraught. For Burling there is not a lot of downside.

For the 2016 New Zealand Olympic effort, there is significant downside as the tickets for Olympic sailors going to America's Cup campaigns tend to be one-way - unless the campaign collapses. But even in that eventuality a talent such as Peter Burling with a brilliant sailing record and superb intellect, becomes a target for the professional sailing team talent scouts.

And with the 2016 Olympics probably going to have some significant overlap with the 35th America's Cup, it should be a nervous wait for Camp Kiwi. The best of Olympic intentions are easily swayed with the offer of a six figure paypacket - which is only an email, away.

Certainly it is significant that the most successful countries at the 2012 Olympics, Britain and Australia, didn't have the distraction of America's Cup and Volvo campaigns, and for their sailors the Olympics are the pinnacle sailing event. But now Australia have had two of their Gold Medalists embark on the same path, as the talent scouts beckon. The collapse of Team Origin was, in hindsight, rather fortunate for Britain's 2012 Olympic results.

In New Zealand sailing life is different, with more options for a very talented sailor base. Certainly Olympic success will now be perceived as an entry ticket to the professional sailing world. Whether that is in New Zealand's best interest for future Olympics, where generally sailors don't medal until their second Olympiad, is another issue.

The Olympic sailors that seem to be doing the best the the Olympic America's Cup transition are those from the apparent wind classes, and that may be a natural dam on any outpouring of NZ Olympic Medal talent.

Staying with matters Olympic, for aspiring Olympians - especially their parents - the comments of Rod Carr are a must see. Carr recently retired as CEO of the Royal Yachting Association - largely oversaw the development of the British Olympic Sailing juggernaut, which has been the world leader for the past 12 years and shows no sign of diminishing.

While many dismiss the British effort on the basis of the money that is available, the key ingredient is still attitude. The British success has been the nurturing and development of that attitude, to the point where it is almost self-breeding in the upcoming generation of new sailors. One only has to look at the British 470 effort to see that in both the Womens and Mens events.
