Windsurfing Race Day 15 with Sea Boss Rider at Saint Aubrey

Either the restarts on Tuesday or just a little high sent us some smooth spring weather yesterday.
Adeli (our Hobbit sized expert), Sanja, Ester (our normal sized horse), Lucy (our small caiman), Izi, Ella and Alya (our very small Alien) joined me on our reversed courses with wind from North and 25knots. Poor Alya crashed in both races and we will try to check her settings again to maybe improve her personal conditions.

During the last two days Lucy, Adeli and Alya scaled down their windsurfers to their avi size and adjusted the positions on the board. So we had actually 4 sizes of windsurfers the boring normal size, M (Adeli), S (Lucy) and XS (Alya).
The resizing worked well for the windsurfer because all is shown and the script can reduce all nicely. Its different with sail boats because on them the sails normally stay at the original size.
The start and race looked really crazy but those little one are as fast as the big ones, all sailed as serious and fair as always, had lots of fun and made this a really cool and crazy race day. And of course the ” remaining Giants” watched the little ones and didnt run them over.

The start of the first race saw Sanja, Adeli and me in the front followed by all the others. Only Izi in her first race was a bit later, but you will see she will get the right timing for the start very soon.

After the last turn in lap one i tested the water temperature and Adeli and Sanja could sail away. The others came very close and caught nearly up with me.

In second lap Izi and Ester passed Lucy and Ella in some very exciting duels.

Izi learned the start timing very quick and started with the herd. Only Ella was a little late this time and poor Alya didnt see the start line and crashed before it.

But shortly after the start Izi went swimming for the first time and fell back a bit. A second capsize a later let her fall back again a bit.
I was chasing Adeli to the first buoy and we turned it close together when SL decided i sailed enough yesterday and disconnected me from the race. I tried to come back fast, but my board was already returned when i came back and so i could only watch the others having exciting duels and lots of fun.

This was one of our most crazy races so far. The different Avis and sizes of the Sea Boss Rider and the exciting duels made yesterday another very cool race day.
