Very good episode !
About the Lord of Tram location, it's in Gruissan (not Gruijan). It is almost a complete offshore wind. This place is mainly famous for the "Defi Kite" which is the biggest kite race with 400 riders on the line at the same time :

I didn't hear before that there will be separate medals for men and women!
It used to be a mixed event. Happy they changed it !

That decision was a major upset in the sailing community :
"On Thursday, June 10, World Sailing was informed by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) that the IOC Executive Board approved Men's and Women's Kiteboarding (Formula Kite) for the Paris 2024 Olympic Sailing Competition. The Men's and Women's Kiteboarding Events will replace the Mixed Kiteboarding and Mixed Offshore Events that were previously selected by members of World Sailing." source : https://www.sail-world.com/news/238457/ ... teboarding

Because the number of medal for each type of sport is limited, they had to remove an event and therefore the Mixed Offshore Race won't be part of the olympics. You can read many articles in the sailing community ranting about this decision.

Not our problem 😉

This Limitation of medals is plain stupid anyway.

What’s next? Take away kiteboarding and add Wing?
