Cabrinha Race Series: Finale

Image

Tonight is the thirteenth night of the 2012 Cabrinha Race Series; and there is still a lot to be determined.

Although first place is locked up, there is only nine points separating 2nd and third, another 6 points between third and fourth, then two points between fourth and fifth, one point between fifth and sixth and then 4 points between sixth and seventh. So that means that everyone from second to seventh must bring their A game and stay away from problems as all spots are up for grabs.

There will also be good racing for spots 9-11 as there are only 7 points separating ninth and tenth and 3 points between tenth and eleventh. So basically we could see lotsa changes in positions for the coveted top 10.

Winds should be about 20 for the first race and then potentially dropping off a bit for races two and three, so kite selection will be critical. Should be an exciting end to a great 2012 Cabrinha Race Series.

Oh yeah, and at least three of of top racers in the world should be using tonight to hone their skills for the upcoming Worlds in October.

Great sequence of pictures of a start!

Who is the guy in blue on the left who port tacks the fleet by 100 yards (along with several others)? I think he's connected to the green and orange crossbow, but can't tell for sure.

That must be a blast! Can't wait to start racing this fall.
