Yup. Pretty much the same thing with the Olympics though... only worse, because they'd have 4 days at the Olympics to pull it off!

Let's look inwards: the IKA handled it pretty badly too. What was that anyway, pushing and shoving its way in?

Re: Which raceboard used Julien Kerneur for the Racing World

Not a slur on RRD. I just read somewhere that they were trying to copy the winning design of the ML70, and that the K-Rapida rode more like an ML than like the K-Race. Depends on the conditions, probably.

Re: Racing World Championship Cagliari 2012 - Day 1

A world championships with 5 knots of wind and no races would not have looked good. Which is, unfortunately, what happened at the European Championships last week in France, despite the PR machine working hard to state that it was an enormous success. Hopefully the images from the Worlds will make ...

Re: Top Windsurfers said to take up Kiteboarding for Rio 201

RRS section 1 rule 2 and the preamble to the rules listed under basic principles both discuss sportsmanship. I personaly wouldn't protest over an unregistered kite... Totally agreed. And so if his fellow competitors won't protest him (because they're not inclined to, or have no way of knowing), and...

Re: Top Windsurfers said to take up Kiteboarding for Rio 201

is this about choosing 3 kites eg 9 11,13 but using a 15m.. - something like that? Yup, from earlier posts, that's what it looks like... I mean, this registration thing is a mess to begin with, but if there are rules at an event, and you break them, you're DSQ'd, simple as that. And if you break th...

Re: Top Windsurfers said to take up Kiteboarding for Rio 201

Wow, Sailing is not a dog-eat-dog sport. Nor is kiting. You do something wrong during a race, you retire. You don't wait for someone to protest you. It was a test event with no ranking points in the balance, just to try things out? All the more reason to do the honourable thing and retire. 230+ race...
