Windsurfing Race Day 9 with Sea Boss Rider at Saint Aubrey

Sunshine…. Sanja, Adeli, Lucy, Orsii, Ester, Ella and Erika joined me on our normal windsurfing courses with wind from North and 25 knots.

all waiting excited for me to let them go

The first 6 (Adeli, Sanja, Orsii, Lucy, Ester and me) started close together and were follwed by Ella and Erika a little later.

the first 6 close together to the first buoy

I didnt dare to take a video to the back, because i wasnt sure what will happen to my course then. Adeli, Sanja and me stayed the whole race close together like this

filming at 16knots… lucky i stayed dry
we were still close together in lap 2

Lucy and Orsii had a nice duel the whole race as well and finished only within 2sec. Adeli passed Sanja in second lap and i sat in first row watching their exciting fight.

4. Lucy and 5. Orsii

In second lap Erika passed Ella, who must have done some mistakes. Only Ester couldnt finish second lap after sailing the first lap well.

6. Erika
7. Ella

The second start was even closer than the first one and the first 7 started within 5sec. Erika decided to have the popcorn place behind all others. After this close start i tried to take a video to the back and stayed luckily dry again.

shame not all rezzed for me

This close group stayed together until second buoy and the different turns there let the fleet spread a bit on the first long high speed leg.

Adeli and me side by side with 16knots on the high speed leg

Just before buoy OE Adeli got magically slowed down by sl and Sanja could pass her. I was lucky and could sail a bit away from them. The rest of the fleet was like pearls on a string… until the finish.

Sanja finished shortly after me
Adeli finished 3rd
Lucy 4th
Orsii 5th
Ester 6th
Ella 7th
and Erika 8th

More and more improving sailors combined with good conditions are the ingridients for 2 exciting races and with lots of duels.

  1. “Adeli got magically slowed down by sl”

    Whaaaaa…? Explain please how this could’ve happened … or is ‘magic’ the officially accepted cause?

    I thought the times of sailors getting into molasses ended in 2009 or so. And we were sailing on much slower and weaker servers back then, not on the super duper modern AWS cloud service.

    • Hya, seems it still happens on some crossings…On the way in, I slowed down from 16.5 to 4.5 knots with warnings because I was still hiking, on the way back, as Orsi and Lucy passed me, it did the same but this time I falled, I never managed to unhike…magic or bad sim, and not official at all, just what I felt watching my screen. At least, it was better than a crash, and I finished with all, that was very cool ๐Ÿ™‚

      • “that was very cool ๐Ÿ™‚”

        Really? Really Adeli? I find this unacceptable! You, and Bianca, and everybody who was participating in that race should create a ticket with LL. Complain about this bad server malfunction.
        Reintroducing bugs from 2009! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ What’s next, bring back asbestos?

        • i better go and get something nice to eat from a good greece restaurant. That gives me a lot better mood than writing a ticket to tell them what the dont understand anyway… It took me 3 months to explain them how bad the new crossings are and that it happens to all boats and all sime… now after more than7 months they really ask me if that happens with sl viewer as well.
          Shall i really explain them that sailing with sl viewer is a pain in the ass because they dont allow RLVa…

          Orca a ticket is useless… that is my experience from last 7 months.

          • Granted, 7 mths is a mighty long time to find a solution they already found in 2009.

            I just don’t understand what RLVa has got to do with sailing. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ
            Isn’t that a thingy for perverts and sexual deviants? Very nice but what’s the connection to sailing?

            But yes, Greek would be nice. Or Turkish. Or Yugoslavian.

            • Many modern nav aids, like USB, use RLV to change mark to next once you reach one of them. No need to click anything, no world map opening, nothingโ€ฆ The beacon simply move to next mark.

              Oh and you donโ€™t have to wear a RLV relay, anything like this, so it is totally safe ๐Ÿ˜‰
