    Rules question

    One guy here says keep the string rule in mind...but this is wrong? Race commitee can put the line on any side of a mark....basically racers can finish from both sides then....because rule 32 is not clear...we had a regatta where this happened and  all the "WRONG" finishers were reinstated....as...

     Could not still any yacht which is about to finish log a protest? Maybe the second line honours boat should convince someone......;-)

    afterwards one is always more clever....but the open 60s do a cow tack instaed of a jibe - thats the reason! Anyway whats the deal with akso? who is the skipper? on internet video one always only sees nico on paper the skipper is a dutch guy ----- so where is he - or is he not allowed to speak?

    Vendee Globe 2016?

    Dont think wind will get much lighter for at...Wednesday evening according to windfinder wind will change to East north east..good time to tack. He can sail around him, I.e pass in the north..if he can point on the other tack?
