I don't think that's the case at all at the moment....people show up every day with a new race board or fin combo, and everyone is stoked to see how it works out. There are many who wish it would go one-design so the playing field is level, but just as many who enjoy working out the fastest technology.foiler wrote:Toby,
- I can imagine that there will be racers who wont support their opponents.
- A limitation of the line-length would maybe reduce tangles.

He was also much less in advantage on rough seas and he was a lot disturbed in Dournanez by the seaweed. Foils are very competitive in very weak winds and on smooth, weed-less water. Even so, they are often chased down on the down-wind track by directionals, on one race that I watched from the shore in Dournanez, Bruno Sroka was almost two times faster than Mat Blanc on the downwind track.
I'm Sure that Tiger Woods would have gotten as far as he did if he could only drive the ball and had no putting skills! NOT!!foiler wrote:BUT: On the upwindtrack Marc Blanc was up to 1 minute in front of the second!!
