“Day 2” Course Racing World Championships

“Day 2” Course Racing World Championships

The wind came in strong today as competitors were on 13 meter kites down to 9 meter kites.  It was a great day of racing as the level is so high.  I have been out of Course Racing for sometime this year dabbling in speed and other aspects of the sport and all I can say is “wow”. The entire racing we have done the past two days was to qualify for the finals tomorrow.  Things are going to change tomorrow big time! You could miss a tack or jib and drop 20 places or gain 20 with making it. It is going to be a rush!  It will be all or nothing racing!  I can’t wait.  Americans are doing great with the Heineken family leading in both on the men’s and women’s side! Adam Koch and Brian Lake are right there in striking distance. I am hanging in there fighting hard, but anything can go down tomorrow.  Alex Aguera leads the Grand Masters and well he is almost beating all his team riders and can out point anyone at the age of 51! I think I better get some sleep……. Damo
