6b - "crosswind racing"
6c - long distance racing.
Have anybody tried such things on formula? How should the course diagrams look?
We've tried "crosswind" "figure 8" slalom this weekend on formula boards. Looks like crosswind races needs the same wind limit:) To say more, slalom style racing needs difficult system to manage races simmilar to what is used in slalom.
What really was meant in AGM under the wod "crosswind"?

Fore sure Antoine makes less mistakes than me and probably has access to better equipment!
Overall early impression of 07 formula gear is that everyone has moved forward- there are no signs of anything like last years fanatic!

When I watch at ranking of the big events I usually try to note what "normal" people has used.They sail production stuff (no custom masts or fins or special sail battens...) and are trained like good week end people.Sometimes I find some exotic brand but usually NP is the name as well....
So,what about mast failures?
