First Nacra 17 Worlds starts tomorrow in the Hague, Netherlands. The United States has five teams over there:

Mike Easton and McKenzie Wilson
Sandra Tartaglino and Tripp Burd
Sarah Newberry and John Casey
Robbie Daniel and Sarah Streater
Taylor Reiss and Catherine Shanahan

There will be live tracking all week here: http://www.tractrac.com/index.php?page=eventpage&id=314

Event Website here: http://www.nacra17class.com/%E2%80%A9nacra17world%E2%80%A9championship%E2%80%A92013/

Talked to Mike yesterday, he felt like they had good speed but need more work on maneuvers. He and McKenzie have only been in the boat a few times, but they should improve quickly. Top two US teams make the US Sailing Team. Should be a fun week!

All boats back to the beach, not going to happen today.
Not looking good for tomorrow either, rest of the week should be slightly better although there is a chance of thunder.

Did a bystander/swimmer break someone's spinpole when there was not even any racing?

Den Hague is not too far from Zandvoort, which is Wouter's club. I wonder if Wouter is there to watch?

We used to layover in Den Hague, about 5 blocks from the beach. At the beach, tops are optional...so I would always take my shirt off, just because.

On the plus side I imagine that Nacra at least has parts available there.

Just found out there is an app to track the races, TracTrac race (for Android but probably iOS as well).

Taylor had a great second DW and made big gains. Yellow fleet up soon.

Well, I had an 8am skype meeting with Singapore, followed by a 9am meeting about a talk we're giving at the AC, and am now sitting in a group meeting.... pretty easy to have tracking on in the background

Four or five starts, but no finishes for the yellow fleet. Brutal!

Jeff not sure where you are reading your results or possibly there is an error in the results on the website? Or maybe you didn't have enough coffee this morning?

http://www.nacra17class.com/%E2%80%A9nacra17world%E2%80%A9championship%E2%80%A92013/results/

Has the following:

Race 1 Blue:
JC/Sarah 14
Mike Easton/Mckenzie Wilson 16
Taylor/Catherine 20

Race 2 Blue:
Easton/Wilson 11
Newberry/Casey 17
Taylor/Catherine 18

Mike it means the wind shifted/died enough after the race started to cancel racing.

Personally I figured JC/Sarah would be a bit further ahead on the U.S leader board. Sounds like its really light air sailing though and things are a little iffy. Bigger spreads to come I suspect as the breeze builds.

My results were based on the tracker. My guess is a couple boats do not have working trackers, or that the finish positions were not exactly accurate. My apologies for being off by a point or two, just trying to be helpful.

Looks like Taylor was DSQ in race two- huge bummer, they sailed well. Not surprised Mike/McKenzie are ahead of Sarah/JC after today. From the races I saw Mike got off the line much better, which is not surprising after watching him sail away from us every week. Mike is a very good tactical sailor, and the very light breeze negates some of the TOW advantage Sarah and JC have. Hopefully they get some more breeze over the next couple days.
