Actually, the dog won, with KO.

I know it sounds incredible, but here is the story. There is very playful and nice dog at the beach of La Franqui in Leucate, where the Mondial du Vent will start this WE. He (or she, I don't know) has one big issue: he likes to play with kites and it's almost impossible to scare him away. So last week I was water starting after having bodydragged over the sand bar. At the moment of the start I was looking at the kite and I did not see the dog who swam after me and was at this very moment just before the board. The foil, still almost horizontal, hit the swimming dog who gave a downward hit on the front wing with his foot, tearing out partially I think the screw inserts. I saw that the dog was ok, so I started to foil, but after a short distance I suddenly lost my front wing with the screws in it... Now I have to replace the 3 inserts.

Thanks for posting Lezo. I think everyone who read your first post was concerned about the dog.

Tough, tough night again. The start of the one race we had was delayed, started, and delayed before finally starting. A big flood tide lead to some super flat water, but effectively meant we lost 3 to 4 knots of wind off a light and patchy breeze. I missed the start in all the confusion and after heading in to get a 13m when a 11m seemed a bit small. Once again we had carnage on the course and a busy set of race committee boats picking up downed kites and riders. It's frustrating when we've had good wind almost everyday since the last no wind race and it disappears on race day! The five people that finished (all on foils) made it look easy again. Yes five people out of ~40 of us finished! Johnny and Chip sent waves of interest through the fleet after using their 12m (I think) Chrono's. They certainly seem to hang in the air longer than anything else.
Place Rider Kite Foil Board
1 Johnny Heineken Chrono 12m(?) Sword Mike's Lab
2 Joey Pasquali ASV Spotz ASV
3 Stefanus Viljoen Ozone 11m(?) Spotz Pickle
4 Chip Wasson Chrono 12m(?) Spotz Mike's Lab
5 Nico Landauer Didin't see

Sorry, I'll try and get kite sizes in future, it's tricky when you're trying to get ready to race too though.

I see in the most recent results that 14 foilboards and 7 raceboards competed. The foilboards took the first 4 places overall, led by Johnny Heineken.
