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.

I’m impressed, if I get two it’s a good day, more practice me thinks.

Correction and update.
I know it seems to be boring. I don't plan to do it too often as it's...
...boring :roll:
However the challenge could be a funny break of normal foiling.
I did it on Sonic15 and SabFoil "Comet" in wind 10-7kts two days ago.
Tried to do 100 tacks in a "narrow channel" style ( viewtopic.php?f=196&t=2403248 ) but the wind decreased and couldn't execute the tacking so quick.
In this case the virtual channel was 40m wide. I stop counting the tacks at around 60 as I touched water twice.

Details:
In total - 88 tacks in 15m33s (a tack every 10,6s), distance covered 5,28km with average speed 20,36km/h.
A narrow channel style - 46 tack in 6m34s what gives a tack every 8,5s, distance 2,00km with average speed 18,4kmh.
