only one support boat to cover the fleet of 60 plus riders
This seems crazy to me and would not be allowed in the UK. How did insurance cover this?
Is it not in ISAF guidelines, the number of rescue craft per competitors?
i thought it was as for dinghy sailing events i think it has to be one rescue boat per 25 competitors or something like that.
a ratio of 1:12 sounds about the right amount to me for kite racing.
hopefully for the next world each country or team will be allowed a support boat as for me some of the best and most tactical racing is to be had in offshore wind with flat water and gusts and shifts.
Any more info on board/fin design and what sort of sizes the top 20 were using?
cheers and congrats to Adam and Kari.
see you there next year
