Yesterday we had 10 boats in the race and all, yes all finished. Lisa, Yvani, Jenna, Lucy, Julie, Nicole, Sea, Magalie, Hwem and Moon raced our B25 course with wind South West and 18 knots.
The Leaders of the Topless Cruise opened a new chapter in this story and its not a nice one. But i will tell you more about that later.
Wind from the South West is the most tricky one to start with to the South, but all did it very well and very fair.
You see here a motorboat at the side. That was the fastest boat in the Topless cruise and stopped respectful at the side and let the race fleet pass. Unfortunately i dont know who the driver was, but big thanks for this respectful waiting.
There were later two others. One “Topless Rambo” in a black B22LTE did 2 circles through the fleet and it was not because of lag or a because of a crash (no simboarder near). That was on purpose, but fortunately he didnt really hit our racers. But shortly after that another “Topless Rambo” in an Flying Shadow tacked in front of Nicole, rammed her and pushed her a couple of meters to the North. They all got a shout that there is a race going on, but they seemed not to respect others and already copied the attitude of their leaders, except the ONE in the motorboat.
Shortly after this i got disconnected by sl. So i missed more of the boats doing the northern zigzag leg and the finishes of the first 4 boats: Lisa, Moon, Yvani and Jenna. But i got the close finish of Lucy, Julie, Nicole, Sea and Magali. Well my lag helped a bit to let this picture look more dramatic, but it looks exciting, doesnt it?
Lisa sailed in front right from the start to the finish a perfect race. Congrats for that. Behind her Moon, Yvani and Jenna had some little duells and Lucy, Julie, Nicole, Sea and Magali survived the “Topless Rambos” and changed their positions several times during the race.
You might miss Hwem in this report. Sorry Hwem i missed you as well during trying to keep the Cruisers out of the way and to watch the Duells, but i promise i will get you next time.
And here is the result from yesterday:

As promised at the end some more words about the attitude of the Leaders of the Topless Cruise and their Cruisers. We have changed our start time to 30min later to avoid the Cruise, but they have chosen their route yesterday very well to disturb us again on purpose:
A Cruise takes normally 1-1,5 hours. They started 30min before us and our race takes about 30min. I expected them running into our race when we enter on the way back Dunai area. Some of the Cruisers were faster and met our fleet earlier and some others met us as expected (as mentioned earlier).
The Topless Leader promised some weeks ago that the cruisers will follow the RL Sailing Rules and wont let the Racers just pass. Maybe this experienced Topless Leader and Race Director for so many years has a different rule book, but i never read that it is allowed to do several circles through a fleet and try to hit them or tack in front of another boat and ram it.
Its really a shame that some still think they are the most important Gods here and can change the rules as they need them and dont need to care at all about others, but only about themselves and their profits. Shall we bet this wasnt the last chapter in this Story?
Stay safe and healthy and hope to see you all again next week for another race.
hugs and kisses
