Chris | 17th December 2005 (05:45:07)


Great effort and great result. Enjoy the party :-)

Anonym | 17th December 2005 (05:55:18)

Way to go Antoine, everyone on Maui is partying tonight. Have a great Christmas in France.

Italian Stallion | 17th December 2005 (05:57:37)

Way to go Seth, hope NP gets you on their team also. Check out the German Windsurf Magazine when you get a chance, big news today.

Anonym | 17th December 2005 (06:05:32)

What, Micah on NP next year, that is old news dude.

Anonym | 17th December 2005 (06:28:29)

micah sucks

Italian Stallion | 17th December 2005 (06:29:08)

Wow I just got my Mag, how did you find out so soon?

Italian Stallion | 17th December 2005 (06:32:05)

I think that Anonym is from Gran Canaria?? Is that right??

Aloha | 17th December 2005 (06:34:33)

Wow how can you say that he sucks. He trained Jimmy and Seth and look at their finishes. Shame on you Spanish

Anonym | 17th December 2005 (07:15:14)

you fools.

micah rips, any day of the year. He's a class act. I hope he gets a tonne of money from NP. He's been in the top of years and deserves everything he negotiates.

Anonym | 17th December 2005 (07:46:57)

results. i guess we will come back next week for those. looks like Antione wins easily, second could be the polish chap, Diaz looks like he'll be in third, Gonzo moves up to 4th from 20th. then who knows. doesn't matter after 3rd.

Vestertom you are bad man for your protest.

Dave K | 17th December 2005 (12:42:15)

Nice going Jesper! It took some time but as the event progressed your placing improved. The bullet to close the event must have felt great! Enjoy some rest... the back to Living the Dream

Anonym | 17th December 2005 (13:33:38)

Vestertom (D111) your protest after 4 days is not valid.

Theo | 20th December 2005 (20:30:33)

Not too long from now, the minutes from this years AGM might show up on this website, but is there already some news or any update about next years location for the World Championships?

Will it be Rhodos or Silvaplana, or some other venue?

Anonym | 20th December 2005 (21:50:07)

jesper did not protest, rather sought redress: there is a a difference to people who know. he was not the one who broke the rules. someone had to do it he was just smart enough to figure he had a right to redress after rc missed their time limit to protest. then the delay was because it took that long for the jury to make up their mind. it was rc?s obligation to enforce their own rule and they failed to do it. give jesper a break, you could not meet a nicer guy he does not deserve your uninformed slander.

sb | 20th December 2005 (23:13:27)

There was a lot of confusion on how to deal with the big no boating/DSQ zone located light next to the finish line and launching area. Before the race, the organizer stressed that you cant go through and if you did, you'd be DSQ'ed.
On the first or second day, a bunch of people went through but were not DSQ'ed by the RC- as they were the only ones who could protest on this ground. Jesper requested redress because he was unfairly affected by an (un)action of the RC. The Protest commitee then reversed their desision and threw out those people who went into the No boating zone the first day- scoring them with DSQ's but not affecting anybody elses scores.
The issue came up the last day again when several competitors sailed through the No boating zone while launching in the surf on their way to the start and also go DSQ'd. Ironicly, they wern't racing at the time (the prep gun had not gone off yet) and the shore break was huge that day with 35-45 mph winds.

ceri | 21st December 2005 (10:45:47)

Hi ,
the no boating Zone was not that big ! it was easliy avoided ; and most sailors did avoid it .
The area is regulated by the local police it was not an arbitary decicion of the organisers or RC .
At the first (and subsequent ) sailor briefings the mpotance of avoidace was emphasised . The launch and rigging area for the event was further up the beach - sailors ignoring the requests /advice of the organisers were invarably the ones at fault .
Racing or not racng is not relevant .
Even the one race with the finish line closest to the restricted zone (race 1) the cours could be sailed without infringement -most choseto aoidthe are and picked their course accordingly .
Pilot error cannot be blamed on others .

Dany | 21st December 2005 (15:06:36)

the next Worlds will be held on Rhodes as mentioned on this years Europeans

Anonym | 21st December 2005 (16:17:58)

Has the event organizer paid the prize money from the last event in Rhodes?

ceri | 21st December 2005 (17:05:44)

Hi ,
Rhodes is not the venue for 2006 Worlds.
A full report will follow soon .

Anonym | 27th December 2005 (15:10:33)

H | 10th January 2006 (15:58:07)

Ceri, will the detailed registered equipment list for the Worlds in Melbourne be posted on this site? Would be interesting to know what fins and sail sizes were used.

ceri | 10th January 2006 (18:44:09)

Anonym | 17th January 2006 (20:51:00)
