Etchells class World Champion Bucky Smith is getting back in the racing saddle next month after a year off from competitive sailing.

The Maroochydore sailor has been absent from the racing scene while he built his business interests and spent time with his family, but the lure of a place on Mark Thornburrow’s team for this year’s Etchells World Championship has bought him out of his sabbatical and back into the game.

Smith has been on the Thornburrow team for a few years, but missed being on board when they won the Mooloolaba Etchells Australasian Winter Championship last year. “We were going to Italy (Worlds) last year as well, but it all got too much with getting time off,” Smith said.

This year’s World Championship is in the home of Etchells class sailing, at Newport, Rhode Island. A fleet of 95 Etchells will be contesting the 21st to 28th June regatta.

Thornburrow’s team will be racing under the Hong Kong flag which is his home fleet. Smith will be on the bow. On mainsheet will be New Zealand’s Simon Cooke and on tactics and trim will be dual 470 class Olympic Gold Medallist and eight-time World Champion, Australian Malcolm Page.

Smith’s job will be trimming upwind and doing tactics downwind, but his primary job will be rig set-up and making the boat go fast.

The team will spend about two weeks in Newport before the main event preparing themselves and the boat for their assault on the World Championships. “During our training we will be finalising our roles.

“We will be doing the New York Yacht Club Invitational Regatta and then we have a whole week of training and testing between that regatta and the registration for the Worlds,” Smith added.

With four on the crew and a class weight limit of 285kg, Smith said all the crew are on a diet.  He has to get down to 77 kilos which means he is already spending a lot of his spare time cycling and running to reach that goal.

“I am very excited to be going over there. It’s 95 plus of the most high quality Etchells, all gathering in one spot It’s the most amazing fleet I will have sailed in. There is that many sailors who could win the regatta, you have got to have a lot of respect for the fleet.”
