Race 2 as well
Race 3 triangle counterclockwise
Race 4 as well
Race 5 as well
Race 6 as well
Race 7 seems to be a windward leeward with an upwind finish on the beach
Race 8 as well
Race 9 as well
Race 10 as well

The start line seems to be not too accurate to the wind.


Thanks vegasrider

Stay cool,

VMG- Velocity Made Good is what that stands for... And it's only relative if you have a fixed point your sailing to. Straight upwind or downwind for instace. Somewhere in this forum I gave my numbers into and off the wind on average (which I shouldn't have)... Teamfluid.com will give the deep details after the worlds. We have to keep a trick or 10 up our sleeves for this 2010 worlds. I've only cometed in two races so far so you would have to ask Heineken about last years numbers. I can hint to you that the formula windsurfers used to beat us vmg wise, but those days are history as of the last couple weeks with some crazy breakthroughs in training between Heineken, Wasson, my brother Andrew and I.

Rock on brotha!

What kind of sadistic SOB sets a triangle leaving the marks to starboard? Please tell me they are at least setting an offset at mark 1? Remind me what the ISAF decided to go with for kites regarding the zone around a mark?

Like it or not the 2010 World Champion will be crowned here in Texas. They will have to earn it every step of the way.... countless hours of hard work, preperation, dedication and sacrafices will come down to a 4 day race that will push our sport forward where it has never gone before. I am honered to be a part of it!

Back to the grind stone....
