Even with the small fleets they seem to have lots of problems when reaching first mark, lots of tangles and protests
Yeah, I did hear there were a lot of protests. I think this was due to the short course. It sounds like most racers don't want the short course, but they are doing it to look better for spectators and TV. Then there wasn't even a single kite race covered in its entirety!

In the Hydrofoil Pro Tour races on long courses (>1 mile upwind I believe), fleets of 50+ riders don't seem to be an issue.
