Yes though with 12 races they now have 2 throw-outs, so impact may be a little less dire.

It said later Bundy went to the beach after the BFD, so it was him.

The Race for the top USA finisher has become rather newsworthy in itself. Ya gotta pull for the kids in this one. Matthew and Taylor have earned their keep. Go Red Gear Yacht Club!!!

Congratulations to Mike and Tripp for taking a second in yesterday's only race, and finishing top ten in the world. That is a huge accomplishment for a US boat!

Also, huge congrats to Taylor and Matt who won the F18 Youth World Title and finished 12th overall.

Robbie was the top Master in 17th overall.

It was a great event, even though we didn't finish as well as we would have liked on 753. We accomplished our goal of making the gold fleet at our first worlds, but definitely suffered a lack of upwind speed when the breeze was on. The European teams are still much better than the North Americans in breezy conditions, but we are improving!

This is a reflection of the support given by Hobie to their sailors.

Funny that you mentioned him, I would say his performance has gone up considerably since switching to the C2 (2nd place!).

First Wildcat was 19th- the Italians that were third at Balaton last year. I have not sailed a Wildcat, but I personally would not have wanted to be on one in the conditions we were racing- windy with big, steep chop.

Destroyed a main sail and a shoulder. Also lost my Wifi on my laptop. Finally home and looking to recover so I can sail again. Had fun learned a lot and other than the wipeout on day 3 it was all good.

Okay, esteemed sailors, how much did that regatta cost you personally? Excluding boat damage which could happen at any regatta...

For the regatta itself, not too bad. The flight from Boston was around $250 roundtrip to Long Beach, shared a house with another team which saved a lot, and I felt the club did a good job with providing food on several nights. Boat transportation was one of the main costs, but Chris Prentice made it as affordable and painless as possible.

Boat preparation adds a lot, but we felt it was worth it to have the boat in top shape for the worlds.

Overall, I though it was a very reasonable regatta to attend- the entry fee was super cheap for everything that was included (thanks Globaltech).

Around 4K excluding sails and incidentals at the event. All told probably close to 7K, the bills are still coming in.

Those sideways pictures were a big clue for the rest of us.

Jeff you might also want to thank Mike at Zhik as he matched Globaltech's funds with shirts and money. He also provided the van and trailer to ship 5 boats out and bring 7 boats back so some of us could fly in and out. Thanks Mike

Speaking of GLOBALTECH, the President and CEO, Tarek would like to hear from you. If you enjoyed our coverage, drop him a note with Surf City Racing in the subject line. Mention Jeremy and Jasper somewhere in the email.

Also, next time you see Mike Krants, tell him thanks. He and Zhik are solely responsible for getting me there. JDub put me up (and put up with me)! It was a massive team effort.

I'd appreciate it.

Thanks Jeremy for the coverage you have a real talent and thanks John for putting us up at your house you are a great host. My wife did tell me to lock my door after seeing the photo of John on the couch and I was a little scared after seeing it. Oh and thanks JC for the cooking that man can make some great food.
