BRA 50, probably the next FW world champ. If not in 2010 for sure in 2011.

Anonym | 25th November 2009 (21:24:54)

yeah you are damn right.

Anonym | 26th November 2009 (09:32:45)

the next world ch will be pasquini

Adri | 26th November 2009 (10:50:19)

Taking the inside (shore) seems to be the fastest to the upwind mark. If the course diagram is correct, there is an extra tack for these port starters. Perhaps this causes the inconsistency of some topsailors?
Compliments to those who are consistent anyway!

Anonym | 26th November 2009 (15:49:29)

guys, don't forget about Steve. He is always on the top! And he is World Champion 2009!!!

GERRIT | 29th November 2009 (13:20:51)

I THINK THE RESULTS AFTER 13 RACES IS NOT CORRECT THE DESC.FROM BRASIL 50 ARE BETTER THEN FROM ATI 4 10/8 RACE1

ceri | 29th November 2009 (13:24:09)

the results are correct. both discard 6, and then ita4 has next best discard - - a7 to bra50's 8

ceri | 29th November 2009 (13:25:51)

not me - bruno for live ticker ; and all the Wind Brasil crew for the organisation and TV

Anonym | 29th November 2009 (18:15:17)

first of all congratulation to winers, particulary to Gabriel who showed great potencial with only 18 years. it is incredible how he defend all attacks from much more expirienced guys. I would like to know what fin/sail combo he used in today races please. ceri please get this info for us formula fans. thx.

Anonym | 29th November 2009 (20:05:43)

He used 10 Maui and 160 with 72 Kashy. But he was very good and menage to beat everyone using every single gust and racing at the best. Something you don't expect from an 18 years old...He lives here, we have anyway to say, that turned to be like a very big advantage. Many times got different shifts then others and put himself back in the game.Didnt win because of the speed, but because of the head. He had an outstanding event anyway. Big congratulations for him

Carlo | 29th November 2009 (20:24:51)

BRAVO ALBY!!!

Anonym | 29th November 2009 (21:20:33)

alberto first italian on the top of fw ranking.
