Just make sure they remember to order them into separate races so the first person in each class gets a 1 not the position they came over the line. You can do an overall winner that way.

Exactly...and by the way this is how we did it over here :)

Hey Taut.
I am interested in what the conditions were where Flash smoked the fleet.

Is it a low key race for fun?

If yes then do not exclude anyone. leave it open slather and let the chips fall as they may. If you have enough different boards for a categories than have category placings.

thats my 5cents.

It was windy. Maui windy. So I am guessing 25 mph choppy. I wasn't there. Next race a lot of people used their TT but had no chance against the directionals. I'm heading over for this weekend, so I'll take a look at his board to see if he has done any mods to it. One guy here had put on some big fins on his board.
