Shields races – July 27th, 2019

This week we tried two courses in Ursula Bay, in the immoral continent of Zindra. Advantages: nobody else sailing there and lag almost zero. Unfortunately only three racers appeared. I would love to have more people. Anyway was a good experiment, when only Nihi crashed in first race. I do pretend to do this once a month, other races will stay in Triumphal, as usual.

Paul won both races, CONGRATS!

First race was a new course designed by me, a simple go-and-back course, in 2 laps. Wind was West, at 21 knots:

  1. What a great idea, Lucy, to take the races on a world tour. \o/ Remember when I did it in 2013? Was fun and many of the sailors got to know new sailing ares they never sailed in before. I guess we had a race in Ursula Bay as well … oh yes, here:

    The M-24 is a much faster boat than The Shields, so of course I could design longer courses. And with long courses come more crashes, particularly back in 2013, when the grid wasn’t as stable as it is today. :/
