first_img30 June 2008Hank McGregor paddled a perfect race in testing rough sea conditions to win his second Durban Surf Ski World Cup title on Sunday in a contest that was laced with intrigue and ultimately decided by tactics and composure on the water.McGregor pinned his ears back and stuck to a line the he felt would be the best straight course from the start at Vetch’s Pier in Durban to Westbrook beach outside Tongaat, while around him the elite paddlers fell foul of tactical errors and lapses in judgment in the three-metre high seas and a south-westerly wind that gusted up to thirty knots.‘Conditions were perfect for me’“Conditions were perfect for me, but I actually didn’t know whether I had won the race until I reached the beach finish,” said a relieved McGregor after the race – relieved because he had been despondent to see a ski finish ahead of him. It turned out that it belonged to a back-marker who had enjoyed a fast race from their reversed-order start.It was only once he had asked the race timekeeper, Margie Oliver, where he had finished, and was told that he had won, that McGregor could punch the air in triumph.The race provided a captivating duel as McGregor stuck to his straight line option, while talented Durban youngster Clint Pretorius opted for a line much further inshore. Cape ace Dawid Mocke went two kilometres out to sea, while the defending champion, Oscar Chalupsky, switched lines throughout the race.‘I panicked’“Hats off to Hank as he raced a great race, but I can’t believe that with 45 years of experience I panicked and changed my mind in the middle of the race,” said Chalupsky, who was unnerved by reports that Mocke had taken the lead with his gamble to race far out to sea where the runs were formidable.Mocke conceded that he too had strayed too far out to sea, even though he had stuck with the readings from his GPS Navigation device. “Suddenly I started getting this reading from my GPS telling me to go in closer, and I realised that I was too far out,” said Mocke afterwards.He cut sharply towards shore as the race neared the finish at Westbrook Beach, but could only watch as first McGregor reached the finish and then Pretorius, leaving him in third place overall.Second placeIt was, however, enough to see him leapfrog into second place in the final World Series rankings, ahead of Tahitian Lewis Laughlan, who did not fare well on the day and finished eighteenth overall.Oscar Chalupsky finished fifth, just behind his younger brother Herman, who had doggedly persisted with a line closer inshore throughout the race.His fifth place was enough to wrap up victory in the World Series rankings for the veteran surf ski paddler, after he held off the challenges of Mocke and Laughlan.Women’s winnerThe women’s title was successfully defended by Cape Town star Alexa Cole (nee Lombard), who thrived in the big downwind conditions. She led the ladies race from start to finish, holding off Kiwi ace Katie Pocock, to win by less than 30 seconds.“I had no idea where I was in the race because the sea was so big and I never saw any of the other girls,” said Cole. “When I got to the finish I was trying to concentrate to make sure I didn’t make a mistake in the shore break. Then I heard over the loudspeakers that I was the first woman home.“I also heard the announcer saying that Katie (Pocock) was right behind me, which added just a touch of pressure as I was coming in through the big shore break!”StungIn addition to encountering dolphins and flying fish during the race, Cole was also stung on the hand by a bluebottle, which caused uncomfortable swelling of the glands in her arm.“The downwind conditions were just perfect for me,” said Cole afterwards. “It wasn’t as big as last year’s race, and I never felt out of control.”Durban star Michelle Eder wrapped up third ahead of Nathalie Veckranges and Tiffany Kruger.Tough conditionsThe thrilling action on the heaving seas north of Durban proved to be too much for the junior world marathon champion Grant Van Der Walt. Racing in his first surf ski race, the Johannesburg schoolboy overshot the finish and was eventually rescued from the beach at Princes Grant, 20 kilometres north of the finish.Durban paddler Steph De Robbillard also caused anxious moments for his seconds and family. He was unaccounted for late into the day, until he was located at Tinley Manor.Scottburgh star Shadrack Mkhize excelled, finishing just ahead of the first double ski, paddled by Butch Murray and Gary Albers. Kelly Howe and Thomas Prior took the mixed doubles class, while Jenny Cullinan and Bettina Risch were the first all women’s double ski crew home.RESULTSDurban Surf Ski World CupMenHank McGregor (RSA) 1:56:24Clint Pretorius (RSA) 1:57:07Dawid Mocke (RSA) 1:57:40Herman Chalupsky (RSA) 1:58:59Oscar Chalupsky (RSA) 1:59:01Jeremy Cotter (Aus) 1:59:37Tim Jacobs (Aus) 1:59:47Dean Gardiner (Aus) 2:00:48Matt Bouman (Aus) 2:01:44Daryl Bartho (RSA) 2:02:59 LadiesAlexa Cole (RSA) 2:21:01Katie Pocock (NZL) 2:21:05Michele Eder (RSA) 2:25:44Tiffany Kruger (RSA) 2:29:43Natalie Veckranges (RSA) 2:36:45 SAinfo reporterWould you like to use this article in your publicationor on your website?See: Using SAinfo materiallast_img read more

first_imgBut airport consultants dispute that claim saying that T1 only has seven gates and often they are all being used with some passengers having to walk across the tarmac to get to their plane. “The Premier, as Tourism Minister as well, needs to urgently call in all parties for a roundtable discussion to seek a resolution that secures the flights for WA,” he said. “It would be disappointing for Perth if we lost this flight on Mr Barnett’s watch.” Qantas’ plans to launch a London to Australia non-stop service appear grounded after Perth Airport all but closed the door on the airline’s hopes to run the prestigious international route on its brand new long-range 787 aircraft.At issue is the airport’s demand that Qantas operate the service from the airport’s international terminal whereas Qantas needs to operate the flight from its domestic facilities to seamlessly hub with other domestic flights connecting passengers to and from cities and towns across Western Australia and Australia. However, Qantas’ need relates to seamlessly transferring passengers off intrastate and interstate flights to the non-stop flight and this can only be done at the domestic terminal. “I would then expect Qantas to move across to the T1 international terminal,” he said. “Securing the western gateway hub through Perth Airport will be a boost to our State and I am optimistic that an agreement will be reached soon.” Qantas insists it will only operate the flights from its domestic terminal facility on the western side of the airport, which require A$25 million of upgrades to handle international flights, including customs facilities. Perth Airport has all but rejected Qantas’ proposal to develop WA into a western hub for non-stop operations to Europe. The service would be, for instance, ideal for Qantas Adelaide and Brisbane passengers who do not currently have a Qantas option to Europe without backtracking via Melbourne or Sydney. Over the weekend, the airport issued a press statement saying that while it supported a direct London flight, it would have to operated from Terminal 1 international on the eastern side of the airport. Yesterday a senior Qantas spokesman said that the airline had long supported the airport’s plan to operations to an expanded T1 “but the simple reality is that it won’t be ready for about another eight years”. Qantas is expected to grow the service from a daily flight to London to add Paris, Frankfurt and possibly Rome services building the annual potential value to WA and Australia to $650 million and 7000 jobs based on government tourism spend figures. Perth Airport’s chief executive Kevin Brown said that it “has offered Qantas a generous multi-million-dollar incentive package’’ to leverage off the existing fit for purpose facilities in Terminal 1 International.’’center_img For many Europeans the big obstacle to travelling Australia is the time and stops required and the proposed non-stop service eliminates both. Studies have shown that a non-stop will grow a route by up to 300 per cent. They point out that the highest priority for the airport is to build a new international satellite terminal – T5 – to accommodate the growth in demand. While the Qantas proposal appears dead Perth Airport added that the airline had submitted additional information to the airport in relation to the proposed new service which it is currently reviewing. The non-stop flight is expected to draw from passengers not only to and from WA but also from the eastern states. The State Premier Mr Barnett repeated his comments of last week that he was prepared to accept an “interim” solution of Qantas operating direct UK/Europe flights from T3/T4 for the next five years.  “The opportunity to create a Western Hub with the Perth-London flight will be here in 18 months, and the only place we can do that in a seamless way that actually makes it viable is the proposal we’ve put to Perth Airport to use our existing domestic terminals for international flights,” the spokesman said. “We’re optimistic that common sense will prevail.” “T1 International has the capacity to accommodate direct services to the UK and Europe, and these services can commence from T1 International at any time,” he said. Typically, the passenger mix will be split equally between Australians and international visitors. State Opposition Leader Mark McGowan said he understood it was a commercial matter to be negotiated between Perth Airport and Qantas, but it was also an important issue for the State.last_img read more
