Windsurfing Race Day 37 with Sea Boss Rider at Eki Tropical Island

Since we dont race in TrYC anymore we will finish out year 2020 on Eki Tropical Island and race their until the December 17th.
Yesterday Nicole, Lucy, Palani, Larry and Walthard joined me there on our two courses with north west wind and 25knots. Mera and Ray were at the dock to watch us.

The fleet before the start of the first race

I had a perfect start in the first race followed close by Walthard and the rest of the fleet a little behind and lined up nicely. Walt and i had a very exciting duell, changed out postions twice until he crashed shortly before 3rd last buoy. But he came back and finished last.
Palani, Nicole, Larry and Lucy were the whole race pretty close together and finished close after another, all 4 within 31s. Well done.
The last week was hanging still in my mind so i made some stupid with the finishing pictures of Nicole and Larry. Sorry you two.

Palani finished
Lucy finished

The second race became really embarrassing for me. First time in 3 years i forgot to set the line for two laps in a two laps race. I promise to be more concentrated next week again.
The start of the second race was even closer and we had Walt, Palani, Larry and me starting within 11s and all sailing very close together on the way up to buoy 1 and 2. There Walthard took the lead and i could follow close, tried hard to catch him the whole race but he defended his lead over the two laps until the finish. Well done Walt.
Palani, Lucy and Larry finished the first lap after some exciting duells within 10s. Lucy could pass Palani in the second lap and finished before Palani and Larry. Nicole sailed as fast as the 3 before her but her little sleepy start let her only watch them all in front of her.
While i was still wondering that we didnt get a finish time after the second lap and then realised that i forgot to set the finishline to a two lap race Lucy finished.

Palani finished
Larry finished
Nicole finished

We saw yesterday lots of exciting race actions. Sorry my friends for my mistake with second race.

  1. Correction because i missed this as well:
    Nicole was in second race just a blink overearly and because she was so close to the buoy and dock she had lots of issues to go around again and thats why she started 1min behind us all.
    I guess it wasnt really my day yesterday…

      • “too fast to be seen”
        You’re never too fast for the SL servers. Overearly is overearly, for you as well as for anybody else!

        =^.^=

        But nice to see a results list with all racers finished. Are LL slowly getting their grid in order?

        • Orca, the 4 sims of Palani on Eki Tropical Island were mostly safe so far… we still have same errors there as everywhere and sometimes a disconnect crash but not as bad as around TrYC sometimes…
