From the Front Page -"If there’s one thing ISAF’s Olympic indecision did, it lit a huge fire under the kiters to get their shit – both organizationally and technically -- together so there’s no question they’re ready for the 2020 games.":

I found it expectionally funny that the first time Kite Boraders are included in Sail Melbourne which is taking place right now, that the protest list is so big!

Seems there are more protests than races being held! Check it out: http://www.yachting....otest/?ID=46026

Maybe on water umpires in the Kite Boarding Olympics when they get there will sort it out, but I think applying sailing rules to kites is a bit of a stretch.

Any comments?

if you do not apply the RRS to kiteboarding, you are saying "kiteboarding is NOT sailing" thank you
