Agree that the models show moderate winds, but SailFlows wind buoys in SF bay already show 7-10 knots averages with 14 kts gusts. If the wind builds as it usually does this could indicate winds in the upper range once again. But at least there isn't a strong ebb reducing the limit.

There have been 5 Races contested in an EBB Tide this Regatta. OTUSA 3 ETNZ 2.
The boat ahead is in control in these races because the wind is always forward and the boat behind has no shadow.Can someone explain why tnz do not initiate a fybing duel when they find themselves behind on leg 2? Surely they could hope for a bad OR gybe or at least a split?
