As slow as the 12 meters were/are, I'd rather see them race. Smaller budgets, better racing, better tactics. This is just find a puff to get moving, and then drag race around the course. It's no longer 'match' racing. As sad as it is, I'll still set my alarm for 0345 on weds and hope for better breeze.

Hey ZZ - help me figure out this Global Regatta thing I'm working on:

Global Big Freakin' Regatta. Possible?

I think it could be pretty fun - and could possibly get more people involved in racing their boats just for the fun of it. It's the absolute antithesis of match racing.

Let me know what you think.

downeast450 asked about the 34th defense. Maybe it should be RC boats in an indoor pool, with a court appointed person in control of the fan.

Probably tomorrow it will be postponed because it will probably be too windy ( and that is really easy)

And why the well do they need a day off? To recover from the stress and trauma of not racing?

I have taken some vacation days to be able to go to Valencia, but I am so disappointed with that mess that I am thinking of going elsewhere. Anyway only by miracle I would be there on a race day, unless I would stay for a week or so, just waiting to happen. Not enough patience for that

The high quality feed is too inconsistent. The medium band is satisfactory with no buffering.
