Reiss-Whitehead 4 in second race of the day. Looks like there will be at least one more today. Lots of wind today but flatter sea state

I understand that this is an international site, but I have a question for US sailors.

Was this the best showing for US sailors at a F18 Worlds? 4 boats in the Top 50, 2 boats in the Top 20 and 1 boat in the Top 5 - not including Easton/Burd who had equipment failure, but were looking like Top 10/15. Is the US F18 sailor talent the deepest it has ever been?

What were the best finishes for Team USA at the H16 Worlds or Tornado Worlds (historically)? I know there have been some good finishes, but don't know specifics.

Tom, the short answer, yes. Excluding the 2012 F18 Worlds in Long Beach, CA this was the deepest and best showing of US F18 teams. The F18 fleet has come a very long way in the last 10 years.

So if you're getting beat by an F18 in a handicap race it's probably not the F18 number that's beating you, right Mr. Hart?
