Man that was some serious carnage!!!

Two races sailed for the (pre-worlds) UAE Nationals in 20 knots and some of the shortest, gnarliest seas I've seen this side of Lake Erie. Lots of carnage, a handful of broken bits and pieces, and the World Champ pitching headfirst through his (now practice) mainsail. Good times, and video a comin'

First race was Arnaud, Chris Graham, Bora, then I forget who. Truth is that there wasn't really much 'racing' - it was more about keeping upright in the nasty chop. At one top mark, video of which is coming, the 2nd through 6th boats all capsized on the reach leg. Then Dalton nearly t-boned Bora. Good times.

what is the wind / sea prediction for this weekend... more of the same?
actually - fri & sat is the weekend - so the weekend is half over - sunday is the first work day of the next week

that being said - sat sun mon look light - less than 10 kts - unless some sea breese kicks in with a little more power

From the Puma ocean racing website-

"We’ve got a great team on the ground in Duabi that includes Dr. Clean (for all you anarchy fans out there) and his crew of video and film pros."

Congrats on the new doctorate, I had no idea. Or is this one of those Hunter S Thompson self proclaimed Doctor of Journalism things?

And funnily enough, I am a Doctor, at least according to my law school diploma. Alan Block, Juris Doctor. Choke on that, bitch!

I want a checklist like dalton has on his boat, to insure he has done everything before he hits the water. I would put dont capsize and tape the bungs on mine. Clean sneak a picture it is pretty classic.

You should know Pete. This is your territory.

Great shots by Mer. Thanks
