Anyone know how they are scoring the Medal race?

The NOR is written in English but I will be damned if I can figure it out. They split the fleet... Usually you carry your points forward. but they talk about forwarding your position. ??? Usually you don't get a discard of your qualifying scores... but that does n't seem to be the case.. Then they have a medal race for sat in gold and silver fleets ... which usually means double points... for the top ten in a fleet... but ???? It looks like everyone races for normal points and they just call the final race a medal race.????

Thoughts?

So 4 US teams made the top ten in silver and should be racing Saturday.

Five US Teams are competing. Two team make the US Team. Does this mean that the other three teams are doen with their Olympic hopes after this regatta? Or is this just that the top two teams are on the team and they get the financing and support from US Sailing and the others have do this on their own? I would think that this is way too early in the cycle to pair it down to two teams.

Correct... this is about funding for the year. Under Brenner, the Olympic team made training opportunities available to all the qualified sailors, they were essentially on the team... but also made firm performance benchmarks for all of the fleets for the top 2 teams who would be designated US Sailing Team members and get the bulk of the funding. The big change was that the sailors actually had to train and practice as a team... not the individual efforts of the past. They actually put it in writing and most of the sailors liked the system. The Olympic review liked this process and the use of the money.

Now the upsets start when two person teams break up or one sailor drops out of the Olympic effort... how does the training money follow... Or what happens when individuals want to break off and do their own training regime....

Other than A cats, who/when was the last US beach cat team to impress us (on the podium) at a Worlds or greater event?

The third place US team will be on the Development Team.

Less than 1 hour to go to lower AP, I'm at a race just 10km away but I doubt they will have a decent race (no wind!).

This TracTrac application is fantastic, very easy to use. Since all the USA boats are in the silver fleet, i've been using the "selection" option which shows a race with just the 5 USA boats. Since the top two get on the Olympic team, its race all itself, and it is very competitive.

I really don't know who I want to win, they are all great sailors. Mike Easton and Tripp Burd are rock stars from my home state. I saw them kick as at the F18 demonstration event at the AC45 world series last year. Robbie is great guy and given me some coaching recently, so great to see doing well. Sarah and John are committed and been working extremely hard, so they deserve it, and can't not forget about the Yute, Taylor Reiss.
