First mark. Alex turns first. Claire and Alice following closely. The rest if the pack is right behind. At this point the race is very open.

Fanny and Justin are now leading. Alex and his crew had some problems. The pack is still very close behind.

For a strange reason, Claire and Alice took the wrong side of the mark and had to turn around again. The other boat is I believe Rugg and Phil taking the opportunity.

Cat Fight – August 18

36532648771_64734b3307_h

Great fleet for this new edition of the Cat Fight. 12 boats lining up, old and new kitties, all waiting to unleash  the speed of their small catamaran. As usual our RD for this week was Cryptic. Looking at the number of boats she was about to have work !

Race 1

Race 1: CartFight-2 Gates

Wind: NW 315° 18kts

Type: Nacra/FS handicap

Boats and Crew

FS – Shau, Ultra, Phil, Claire, Rayz

FS/C – Kayo w/Moon, Dae w/Minna

Nacra – Gryfin, Justin, Soh, Rugger w/Red, Christine

36624795426_b1c0de213e_h

This first race was epic. While i was rushing to the starting line, 16 kts, i could see boats everywhere and my only goal was to avoid them. I eventually did, crossing the line in a good position and quickly sailing  ahead of the pack . The race was not so easy for other sailors, 4 crews could not finish the race, victims of our only fear: the lag.

Because of their speed, the two Flying Shadow crewed went quickly out of the fleet, fighting for the first and second position. Justin and his Nacra was the 3 one to cross the line, taking the 4 position after handicap and letting the 3 position to Ultra and his FS. A great race for these two new kitties !

If these big fleets don’t offer always the best sailing condition, there is something magic of being part of a large race, sailing with others people sharing the same interest for speed. It was fun !

Race 1 - August 19

Race 2: NS-

SOL 13C

Wind: SW 225° 18kts

Type: Nacra/FS handicap

Boats and Crew

FS – Ultra, Claire, Rayz

FS/C – Kayo w/Moon, Dae w/Minna, Shau w/woogalie

Nacra – Gryfin w/Red, Soh, Christine, Phil

35861827563_ad26c9e618_h

For the second race, because of the number of boats, we had to cancel the Rodeo and took a race with less turns and more space. It was a good decision. We almost all finished the race successfully.

After a good start, Claire took the lead with her FS. She took the first place after handicap followed by Ultra. The 3 place was for Phil and his Nacra.

race 2 - August 18

Race 3

Race 3: CartFight-2 Gates

Wind: NW 315° 18kts

Type: FS class crewed

Boats and Crew

Shau w/woogalie, Gryfin w/Red, Ultra w/Noto, Dae w/Minna, Kayo w/Moon, Claire w/Phil

6 boats for the last race. The largest crew fleet we had in the Cat Fight. It was as well a very tactical race. After the first mark, Claire was ahead, but behind, Dae, Ultra and Kayo were fighting their way to the first gate, trying to take advantage of their position. Making the deadly mistake of putting myself downwind from the 2 others FS, i saw Claire accelerating …While she was probably reaching 16 or 18knots at the gate, we were stuck at 12 kts….that is the Cat Fight ! Congratulation to all crew and of course to our winner ! Claire !

Josh DSQ in the 1st race, for ROW infringement on Alex just before the finish (no penalty taken). Josh was on a Port tack and Alex on a Starboard tack with a line to the finish line (image below taken one second after the colission). Josh had no line and should have gybed before crossing in front of Alex and forcing a collision.

Well done to all. A pity Gail crashed out in both races. Nice to see Joy come sail. A pity she crashed too in the second race. Not sure what happened to her as she left. See you all soon.

Well done to all sailors. Fun racing and good sim conditions. This boat is very low lag, so it doesn’t cause any problems itself. We just need to to wind-shadow to be a little more exciting. We’re asking Cory to add that. Feel free to add your vote for that feature.
