I have to go out and investigate a workers comp claim.  I am going to miss the rest of this, and other races if they happen.  :angry:

I am recording this at home.  Guess I will have to avoid this thread until I watch the rest of this race.

Enjoy to those continuing watching live.

Are they going to get through another upwind within the time limit? Will they shorten it to a 4 leg race?

Who is madder if they abandon due to the wind dropping under the limits?

They can't. The wind limits only apply in that 5 min window before the start.

They can't abandon.  Only shorten the course.

they talking time limit running out.  Saying it will be cancelled, Christ I was off the belief that once the race started that was it.

this is a rich history of AC races in drifting conditions- but you youngsters are probably too young to remember Newport in August

WRT wind speed, they only measure in a 5 min window 8-3 mins before the start, and after that once they start it's running.

But there's also a 25 min time limit. If they don't finish in that time, it's over.

Why not raise the dagger boards 

In the raised position the AoA is wrong and increases drag
