On one hand its nice to see so many old sl users back in sl, if only the reason for it wouldnt be so sad, but on the other hand in combination with all the other net traffic it makes racing sometimes quite frustrating.
This time Nicole, Sanja, Viv and Laured joined me and we used the courses
TrYC Sea Boss Rider-reversed
and TrYC Sea Boss Rider
with wind South (180°) and 21 knots.
I was before our race at Vivs Nacra race at NYC and on Blake i had ping time to Blake sims of more than 270ms (usually from Germany are 180ms for me). That made sailing hard because it took ages until the boat got my commands to react. Fortunately that went to normal for me at TrYC later.
Sanja crashed at the first Crossing on the way to the startline, had to rez a new board and started 3min after all others. Practice in her afternoon let her do all smooth and without any issues.
Laured has been crashing the last couple of weeks nearly in every single Windsurfing race. This time she could Show how good she can be on the Windsurfer and finished the lap, but right after the line she crashed on the next crossing. She gave up for the second race and tbh i can understand her frustrations of the last weeks, but hope she will come back to race with us again soon.
Racing in these days is a kind of lottery game… sometimes we loose, sometimes the others win…hahahaha…
Enough complained about sl and Internet speed. Here are our results from yesterday and when you look at the times you can imagine we had some very exciting duells again…
