Strange that you need to sign out and in for EVERYsingle race and not once per day.
It is a pitty that this is affecting the results.
If you need to give a penalty, give a money penalty, but leave the results like it was in reality.
If 40 people did not singout in the first race, something must have been wrong with the communication??

Apart from the strange sign in and sign out, does anybody know how blue and yellow will evolve to maybe a gold and silver fleet and then to the champion?
Does the first half of the yellow fleet and the first half of the blue fleet come together in the gold fleet? And after how many races that is?
Anyone who can shine a light on this??
What about the women? Are they already sailing for the championship? Or do they also have some qualifiyng races??
Strange also to find a mixed provisional men's results. Why not keep the blue and yellow apart?????

The Championship Rules are published on this website (ONB) - all the details about qualification races(yellow / blue) and final races (gold / silver ).
All races will count to the Championship-less discards according to FRRs. Only the first round (blue /yellow) is limited to maximum 8 races before final split.
provisional results are published to show current standing after 3 races -if no more racing this is the Championship result .
Todays fleet split (blue / yellow) is decided from this full provisional list .

Thank you for allowing me to participate in this event from my desktop.
Maybe some new sponsors, with deep pockets, will start to recognize the marketing value of these type of events.
The big money can also be a two edged sword. BEWARE.
The speed of all couldn't be closer to equal than it is now. Lets just keep developing what we have now and not mess with the equipment rules.
We have had the windyist May in the Republic of South Florida in 60 years. 15-25 knots, steady for the last three weeks.
