Windsurfing Race Day 12 with Sea Boss Rider at Saint Aubrey

The weather conditions were different for the sailors. Some had sunshine, some here an there showers and some storm. Sanja, Adeli, Lucy, Orsii, Ella, Erika, Ester, Amy, Alya, Laured and Rowan joined me on our reversed courses with wind from South and 25knots. Ella and Rowan ran into storms in the first race and crashed. Laured had a really windy and rainy autumn day, but finished finally a lot later. For the rest it was mostly sunny and they could enjoy their race.

Sanja had the perfect start with full speed and the a couple of seconds later 9 boards followed within 5 seconds. Only Alya and Rowan followed a bit later.

Hakiria crashed unfortunately during first lap and could not make a video of the end of lap 1, but was back in time for the end of race 1.

I started to chase Sanja and Adeli after the start, could pass Adeli on the last leg of lap 1 and nearly Sanja on the last leg of lap 2, but she saved her lead into the finish. Behind me i saw all the dots chasing each others, but i cant say which yellow or green dot passed which one. It lookes as if all had nice and exciting battles.

Laured came in after her hard fight against the conditions 9.
The start of race 2 looked very similiar to race 1. Only Laured said the conditions are not good for her to join us in second race.

Race 2 was like a copy of race 1 just on another course. Sanja, Adeli and me in front and after us a ball of green and yellow dots battling with each others. In the middle of the last high speed leg Adeli was turned in the middle of a sim 30Β° to the south west and needed quite a bit to get back on course. In the meantime Sanja and i sailed away from her. This time i could catch up with Sanja on the second last leg, passed her at the last buoy and saved my little lead into the finish. Behind us the herd finished completely one after another and after a lot of exciting duels along the course.
Right in time when the racers came in for their finish a GTFO freigther crossed their line. Most could just pass it. Only Ella needed a very fast turn to sail around it.
I didnt see it coming so i couldnt warn the skipper and it disappeared fast again so the damage wasnt too bad. But it was for Ella an additional adrenaline kick.

It seems as if Sl starts to decide races with their weird conditions, randomly and differently to different sailors. It is just a feeling i have and more and more other get it slowly as well. I hope LL will get this fixed soon or races will become a lottery and i am afraid sailors will leave them frustrated like yesterday Laured.

And here are the results from yesterday:
