Transcript of "Club Swan Directory 20092010"

  1. 1. ClubSwan Directory 2009/2010
  2. 2. Dear ClubSwan Members, I am glad to present this new, totally revised edition of the ClubSwan Directory. ClubSwan is in its eleventh year of existence; its original objective of pro- viding extensive support and assistance to Swan owners, however, remains unchanged. Swan’s vision is also unchanged: we are a company which prides itself not only on the quality of our boats, but also on the reliability of service that we are able to offer our customers. ClubSwan has established a comprehensive network of services for its Mem- bers. In this Directory you will Ànd a list of Yacht Clubs which offer tem- porary membership to visiting Swan owners, Service Centres inspected and authorised by Nautor’s Swan, and Marinas which will have special regard to visiting Swan boats. This year’s edition of the Directory also includes sections titled Charts, Dis- tance Tables and Navigational Resources; with the extensive information they provide there is every possibility that all the locations listed will be visited by ClubSwan Members in the coming months. The Itineraries from Pietarsaari to Palma will be of particular interest to Swan owners picking up their yachts from our factory and sailing them to the Mediterranean. This is only the start: future editions of the Directory will include other recommended itineraries based on the experience of ClubSwan Members. Another section of the Directory that I’m sure will appeal to our ClubSwan members is the Yard Historic Registry. Here you will Ànd drawings and technical speciÀcations for every model built by Nautor’s Swan from 1966 to the present. Last but not least, the Membership Card included with the Directory will en- able ClubSwan members to visit the facilities listed and to take full advantage of the privileges available. As part of our efforts to continuously improve the ClubSwan experience, we also welcome feedback. Please feel free to contact ClubSwan by e-mailing clubswan@nautorswan.com. We will be pleased to receive your comments and suggestions. On a personal note, I wish you all good sailing and fair winds and look for- ward to meeting you at sea! Leonardo Ferragamo

  6. 6. Rules & Regulations The Club - Rules & Regulations Art. 1 The Mission ClubSwan appreciates and treasures the passion and the respect for nature and sport and all those other values, such as the love of beau- ty, the feeling of freedom, and the enjoyment of challenge, which sailing at sea emphasises. While ClubSwan realises that these values have always been the in- spiration behind Swans, it also wishes to develop the passion and the enjoyment these yachts bring their owners, their close friends and those supporting the ongoing Swan legend by promoting the Spirit of Swan. ClubSwan intends to become a reference point for all its Members offering supporting, qualiÀed services and outstanding opportu- nities, while increasing the occasions for meetings and exchanges among Members.

  37. 37. The following section provides a list of useful navigation resources, from meteo sites, to distance calculators, to a glossary of wind names throughout the world. Also included are three sky charts and a link to a website where you can create your own.
  38. 38. Navigation Resources
  39. 39. Grib download Grib is the software used worldwide to transfer weather patterns between international meteo centres. Designed to minimise Àle size, it gives information based on latitude and longitude and is therefore easily applied to maps. It can be downloaded and used on any laptop running the appropriate Windows software. It is ideal for yacht’s low bandwidth reception because forecasts for several days can be sent in an e-mail attachment of a few kb when just one synoptic chart from an ordinary website takes up 50-80 kb. www.grib.us After downloading a free Windows software called Ugrib, grib. us users can customise their Grib information which is then updated every six hours to provide a seven day forecast.

This software is the Grib weather information. This source for those who use Raytech Navigator and runs seamlessly selection of sites comes with with onboard Raymarine Seatalk networks. the recommendation of Swan sailors and owners. www.bandg.com The B&G company has developed a new product called Deck- man which adds Grib information to its traditional tactical and routing software. Deckman has an animation feature which al- lows users to watch weather patterns developing over a seven-day forecast. An “Optimum Routing” option plans routes avoid- ing areas with waves predicted to be larger than a user-deÀned height. www.saildocs.com Appropriately dubbed “Internet services for the bandwidth impaired,” Saildocs is an e-mail based service which provides straightforward Grib information. Supported by Snailmail and running on Viewfax, Saildocs guarantees low bandwidth require- ments and can run via radio e-mail. www.siriuscyber.net/wxfax/ Supplied directly by Snailmail, Viewfax is another Grib software that requires minimum bandwidth and is compatible with down- loads via radio e-mail. It also now supports downloads directly from Saildocs. www.meteofrance.com On top of its usual marine meteo information, Meteofrance is developing Navimail, a mail based, low bandwidth service that will supply Grib and other meteo information. This free soft- ware, still under beta development, will include a Mac version. 40
  40. 40. Global Weather Sites www.wetterzentrale.de This German site charts every imaginable weather condition including wave height, wind speed at 10 mt altitude and more for up to 126h ahead. It also provides links to 5 weatherfax serv- ices. GFS Meteograms are available for more proÀcient weather analysts. Navigation Resources - Meteo Sites www.windguru.cz Originally created for wind and kitesurfers, this site has become an international reference point accessible in 19 languages. Look here for detailed weather and wind direction forecasts for coastal locations around the world. Access to this site’s more advanced features require a WindPro subscription. www.meteoconsult.fr A professional but expensive global meteo site which offers map services and direct contact with routers. Skippers can submit proposed routes and discuss options which will allow them to maximise cruise speed while staying out of the worst weather. www.onnpassage.com This site provides links to weather sites. Useful and simple, it lists its links by geographical area, language and technical scope. www.passageweather.com This site is dedicated exclusively to sailors. Well organised and easy to navigate, it allows users to view charts, which are divided following geographical areas, directly from their computers. Un- fortunately, it has a high bandwidth requirement. www.theyr.net This pay-to-view site provides extremely accurate wind charts with various animation options and meteograms for speciÀc loca- tions. Also available is a Grib service with its own free download- able software (Windows and Vista only.) Baltic Sea & Gulf of Bothnia www.fmi.fi The Finnish Meteorological Institute’s website has an interesting shipping section with gale warnings graphically displayed on a map. Fully accessible in English, it also provides four-day weather forecasts. www.smhi.se The Swedish Meteorological Centre’s website is available in Eng- lish and supplies abundant information on local weather condi- tions and wave height and period. Its ice charts are updated daily and in the summer it includes data on algae observation. 41
  41. 41. North Sea, English Channel and North Atlantic www.bbc.co.uk The BBC’s weather site contains shipping bulletins, buoy ob- servations, tide tables, Atlantic weather charts, surf reports and coastal forecasts. An interesting feature is the “inshore water forecast” which observes the Thames Estuary up to London. www.metoffice.gov.uk Prepared for England’s Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA), the Met OfÀce website is user friendly and easy to navigate. Its “marine weather” section gives fast access to gale warnings for both inshore and offshore areas making it a complete resource for sailors. www.weather.gov/om/marine/home Full of detailed text and graphic forecasts for the whole of the North Atlantic, the US National Weather Service’s website offers forecasts in both text and chart format. An interesting map-to- text feature allows users to click on a speciÀc region and retrieve its forecast in text. The division of coastal regions is extremely detailed: the area from Manhattan to Long Island, for example, is divided into nine separate marine areas. Mediterranean www.eurometeo.com/english/home Hosted by the Italian magazine Nautica, Eurometeo provides a variety of weather information. Its most useful feature is a link to Italian marine forecasts and weather information. www.ilmeteo.it This is an Italian weather site with a marine section under the heading “Venti e Mari”. It includes coastal observations for hun- dreds of locations in Italy and a seven-day graphic forecast for the seas around Italy, Croatia, and Greece. www.canalmeteo.com While this Spanish site does not have a speciÀc marine section, it does have a wide variety of observations and forecasts for Spain’s coastal areas including the Balearic and Canary Islands. www.poseidon.hcmr.gr Poseidon, the Hellenic Centre for Marine Research’s website, has a sailing section in English. Look here for Àve-day charts for both wind speed and wave height. The waters around Greece are divided into Àve different areas for detailed and reliable informa- tion. www.prognoza.hr The Meteorological and Hydrological Service of Croatia’s web- site has Aladin/HR 72h forecast maps which display wind speed, surface pressure, precipitation and wind dynamical adaptation for Istria and Kvarner, Zadar, Split and Dubrovnik. 42

  43. 43. West Atlantic and Caribbean www.weather.gov/om/marine/atlantic.htm The “Atlantic and Caribbean” section of this site provides both text and graph forecasts for the offshore areas of New England, the Mid, Southwest and North Atlantic, and the Caribbean Sea. Each of these areas is subdivided into dozens of coastal regions which allows for precise and detailed marine forecasts. www.caribwx.com One of the few weather sites dedicated exclusively to the Carib- bean, caribwx provides local forecasts but, unfortunately, has no speciÀc take on sailing or marine routing. Australia www.bom.gov.au/marine/australia-marine-forecast-map.shtml The Bureau of Meteorology of Australia’s website has an inter- active map which allows access to text forecasts for all Australian marine zones. Look here for High Seas map forecasts for seven areas around Australia, including Antarctica. Distance Calculators www.dataloy.com A powerful marine calculator, Dataloy has a current database of 6500 ports and harbours worldwide. Users can also upload new harbours and marinas and suggest updates to the data base. This site is very easy to use: just enter a “start” and an “end” port: Dataloy will then calculate the route and waypoints. Total mileage and headings for each portion of the route are displayed and if an average speed is entered Dataloy will also display the estimat- ed time of voyage. Alternatively, you can use Dataloy to plan a route with up to eight different stopovers. Recreational sailors are allowed free access from 19.00 to 24.00 GMT daily. www.veson.com This is the Great Circle Line’s marine distance calculator. A trial version can be downloaded, but there is no free access area for yachtsmen. www.movable-type.co.uk/scripts/latlong.html More of an intellectual pastime than a practical navigation tool, the various scripts on this page provide Great Circle Distance and bearing calculators based on the Haversine formula for the shortest distances between two points on the earth’s surface. Look here for initial, midpoint and Ànal bearings along a speciÀc route. Clearly, this tool does not apply to short routes. 44

  52. 52. For many Swan owners, a maiden voyage from the boatyard in Pietarsaari to a port in the Mediterranean is an ideal opportunity to get to know their new yachts. With these voyages in mind, we have prepared three itineraries. Look to the following pages for charts of the suggested routes and advice on hotels, restaurants, sights and shops along the way.
  53. 53. Itineraries from Pietarsaari to Palma
  54. 54. 64 Itineraries 1. Coastal route 58 For boats under 90 feet, this is a safe route. The Kiel ship canal offers a pleasant shortcut, reducing the journey by 280 nautical miles and bringing you straight out into the North Sea. Make a short stop on England's south coast before continuing towards the Mediterranean. 2. Direct route D Dublin 54 For boats over 90 feet or for those who want to enjoy Cork stopovers in Copenhagen or Marstrand, this is the route to take. Sail around the Jutland Peninsula before making your passage through the North Sea and into the south. Plymouth Hamble Falmout out outh Falmouth 50 3. Longest route If time is on your side, take this route via Norway's spectacular Saint-Malo Saint-Malo i fjords. You could then cruise 48 over the top of Great Britain and explore the magniÀcent Hebrides before continuing your voyage south through the Irish Sea, stopping in Dublin or Cork along the way. 56
