Course is going to be upwind downwind, with start finish gate half way between.
2 fleets, pros and ams.
pros go windward, leward, windward finish all to port
ams go windward, pin end of gate, windward, finish all to port
same start time and this way stops the ams from exceeding time limit and the fast guys waiting around for too long.

Forecast is looking great and yes Penzance (Mounts Bay) is great as can race in all wind directions with relatively flat water.
come along and experience the thrill of kite racing :jump:
