Hum not much fun i think, because the easiest way to win that would be on a big foil with a small kite, making the tacks at very low speeds with almost no effort.

I nicer challenge would be "who can make a tack at the highest speed possible? and a jibe? :) im sure the pros have crazy numbers on this.

I will not win this challenge but I may try and record a similar looking track just to practice my tacks. I'm not good enough at them to do 100 in a row, hell, I can't even do them from port->starboard yet, which is my weak side.
