Sanja, Amy, Lucy, Izi, Ester and Ella joined me yesterday on our normal courses 1 and 2 with wind from North and 25knots.
The weather was just normal, several slow crossings, one temporarily lost sim and one disconnect of Lucy in first race.
The fleet at the briefing with a close up video by Hakiria
Izi, Sanja, Ella, Ester, Amy and Lucy started within 5 sec and i followed a bit later. Hard to say who had a duel with who because we all were quite close together.
Lucy and Amy came a bit too close after the start.d Amy went swimming and Lucy could just avoid the test of the water temperature. So these two were definitely having a duel at the end of the fleet afterwards. But see yourself on Hakiria’s videos.
The turn around buoy CN and the following full speed leg to buoy OE:
The finish of the first lap:
The second time turning around buoy CN. After Lucy got probably disconnected her board went straight to somewhere….
After buoy OE i hit the next cross and was pulled off and i thought my board was gone. But no. It is well trained and it seems to cross the finish line nearly alone. But the line didnt accept that and didnt register it.
The finisih: 1. Izi, 2. Sanja, 3. Ella, 4. Ester, 5.Amy
Congrats to Izi for her start-finish-win and all others for the fair exciting duels.
So if you think that was really exciting then you are right, but watch the next and you will see it can be even more exciting.
Start #1 in race 2:
Not much more to say about that race try because between buoy CS and IS the sim Gerache was missing and i called all back for a restart.
While i was in support chat, Ezio checked the sim again and it was suddenly back. So we prepared for start #2.
This time all started within 7sec and stayed nearly the whole race close together. I could manage to sail just a little bit in front of the rest of the fleet. They looked nearly as one big dot on my minimap behind me.
The first leg to buoy CS in the next 2 videos:
On the two high speed legs from buoy IS via buoy OE to buoy CN the fleet stayed very close together at around 16.5knots. Sanja had an exciting duel with Ester and passed her on the upwind leg to buoy OE.
On the following downwind leg and the last high speed leg to the line Sanja caught up with me and passed me on the line by less than 0.5sec.
Amy, Lucy, Izi and Ester stayed close together and finished later within 5sec. Only Ella seemed to make a mistake somewhere and was a bit behind
The finish: 1. Sanja, me, 2. Amy, 3. Lucy, 4. Izi, 5. Ester, 6. Ella
After that hot race all enjoyed the cold after race beer at the marina
Congrats to Sanja for her win and the others for fair and really exciting duels again.
Even if i repeat this again, but these race become more and more exciting with more duels and close high speed sailing side by side.
