Viewing every one of those pics, here at a boring day at work, was awesome.

It looks as though most of them had a turning block attached to the front trap line, that the jib sheet runs through, right?

More likely to be the downhaul (cunningham), routed from the cleat at the mast base to a turning block of the crew trap and then back onto the boat with the end kept under control with a bugee (e.g. in the front cross bar). This lets the crew and/or skipper have ready access to the downhaul when going to weather.

Well, that would make sense. A good crew would 'trim' the downhaul going to weather on my last two former boats.
Thanks Chris

PS, can I help in any way with the new server for our 'Cat' club, the "Texas City Dike Yacht Club"?

Second That, Eh! <img src="http://www.catsailor.com/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />

"The Canadian duo of Oskar Johansson and Kevin Stittle impressed today with a third in race 3 and then winning race 4 to move from eighth overall up to fourth place clearly signalling their determination to earn one of the final Olympic berths on offer. They are now the best placed of the ten countries fighting for four places."

I would like to point out that the driver in the above link is still a TEENAGER!
Whilst Tom is set for great things in catamaran sailing, i know that he is gutted that it may not be in the Olympic context.
Marcus is the Junior cat [Dragoon] national coach, so he can expect lots of input on windward mark roundings at his next session.

Good luck Tom and Marcus

Looked like a fantastic rounding until what I think is a gust hit. Look at PUR1 in the background of one of the images..
Full turtle, not good, even if it looks like it was coming back up in the later pictures.

They did finish that race, so yes, it was righted.

Yeah, it looks like 'Quique and Jorge were having control problems, too. They didn't even beat the Brits in that race.

Can you say that a Tornado is now 100% right-able with the new lighter rig?

Considering how they started (14 + 23), that's pretty amazing.

Bundock and Ashby win 2008 Tornado World Champions
1:42 PM Sat 1 Mar 2008

Building winds with gusts approaching 40 knots and driving rain on the Hauraki Gulf today. When the abandonment signal sounded at Takapuna Boating Club this afternoon, Australianís Darren Bundock and Glenn Ashby became the 2008 Tornado World Champions.

The win puts the Australians on the board as potential Olympic medallists
and is the third World Championship victory by members of the Australian
Sailing Team in the past eight weeks. Bundock and Ashby's victory comes hot
on the heels of Laser sailor Tom Slingsby's back-to-back World Championship;
a win at the 49er Worlds for Nathan Outteridge and Ben Austin in January; a
Worlds bronze medal for the Women's 470 team and a Worlds silver for the
Yngling team.

Tornado skipper Darren Bundock and crewmember Glenn Ashby went into
yesterday's racing second overall, mindful they had to finish on top of the
leader board because the weather forecast made it unlikely there would be
racing on the final, scheduled day of the regatta. They won the first race
of the day and placed sixth in the second race, giving them the overnight
lead.

When the winds gusted to 36knots this morning with an average of 27-28
knots, racing was cancelled and the Australians were declared winners with
34 points, just five points ahead of Canada and France who were tied at 39
points. Canada claimed second place and France dropped to third on
countback.

While disappointed there was no opportunity for a final tussle on the water,
Bundock and Ashby were pleased with the win and their performance in a
regatta that saw them claw their way back through the field from a 19th
placing early in the event.

"We'll take a win any way it comes," said Bundock.

"This win means a lot to us as we've now won the last four ISAF grade one
events."

Bundock is the only member of the Australian Sailing Team competing at the
Beijing Olympic Games to have previously won an Olympic Medal and, with the
Tornado class currently not included in the London 2012 Olympic Games
schedule, he and Ashby are focused on success in China later this year.

"We've got the boat going very good in light winds and now in strong winds
as well so we're ready for anything, said Bundock.

"Our focus is firmly on gold in Qingdao - I've got the silver from Sydney
and now we're going for the gold."

Bundock and Ashby have been sailing together since 2005 and have won six
World Championship titles together, including two in the Tornado class. For
Bundock, this is his sixth world title in the Tornado, having won in 2006,
2003, 2002, 2001 and 1998. Ashby is a champion A-cat sailor, having won five
world titles and his skills have combined with Bundock's Tornado experience
to create a formidable representative team in the fast and furious,
multi-hulled Tornado class.

At 36, Bundock says he's as fit as he's ever been and sailing at his best,
but the addition of Ashby brought new energy which they hope will pay off at
what could be his last Olympic campaign.

"As everyone knows, China is going to be a completely different kettle of
fish with the light conditions in Qingdao, but we've been preparing for that
for the past two years and we're confident about our potential there," said
Bundock.

The pair's success over those past two years has also brought the pressure
of expectation.

"Everyone is getting used to being beaten by us now and I guess people are
starting to see us as favourites, but I don't know if that's a good or bad
thing," laughed Bundock.

Australian Sailing Team Director Michael Jones believes the team's
consistency is what puts them at the top of their sport.

"These guys really are at the top of their game with the worst result over
the past three years being a fourth at the ISAF Olympic Classes World
Championships in Portugal last year," said Jones.

"This win is particularly pleasing in light of the tricky conditions at
Takapuna, because while the team has always had good speed, this result
shows their ability to race in more challenging conditions.

"Coming back after a bad start to the regatta, sitting down at 19th after
day one, shows their maturity and proves they are strong contenders to win
in Beijing."

Three Olympic class world champions isn't bad for a small country with a population base less than that of Texas. However, I fear Qingdao will be a real light wind lottery and it wouldn't surprise me if Australia finishes with no sailing medals as happended in Athens. And I don't think we can rely on our swim team to keep us at 4th ranked Olympic nation overall.

Here's a link to the press conf. audio with Team Canada.

At near the end, Oskar says he now has lots of ammunition to fire at the Canadian Yachting Assoc. to get them to change their voting for 2012.
