Kennedy Slicks, Cape Cod. Falcon 89, RB 5.0, BPWS 28. Rigged just before the wind dropped, so underpowered for a while until I released downhaul and outhaul. Fun session.

Kennedy Slicks, Cape Cod. The 6.3 was a bit small at times, but fine in gusts, and having a small sail worked beautifully for alphas. Kennedy Slicks may not be perfect for top speed, but they sure are nice for alphas in a a WSW. Went out to improve the team alphas for the month, ended up with a PB - nice!

Thanks, Al. Relative to top speed, your alpha today was better than mine Smile. And you've done quite a nice job collecting jelly beans this month!

Always good to see a Yankee PB, making speedsailing great in America again!

... says the Australian to the German, while the other jelly beans for the month go to windsurfers from four other European countries; the top spot in the "USA" rankings in 5 of the 6 categories (including top speed) is held by a Croatian; and all the top spots for 2017 in all 6 categories are held by immigrants. Looks like a "great America" just needs more immigration.

So what if an immigrant or American get's a PB and promotes speedsailing in America. There used to be over a 1000 people attending speed events in the USA back in the early 1990s, now there's a dozen at best. Why make it political about whos participating, it's more important there are participants. It's small minded comments that do little to advance the sport.

Not bad Peter! Not bad! I bet you can improve on that on Saturday or Sunday Wink

Boro, you'll probably loose that bet. Saturday's forecast has just 17-18. Could end up not reaching the shore, or could be decent if it turns a bit more west, but won't be strong enough for PBs. Sunday will be windier at the "elbow pit" (Cape Cod Bay in Brewster), but it's choppy there - fun, but more B&J and waves than speed. Barnstable Harbor is flat, but gets 5-10 mph less wind that's gustier, and the flat areas work for about 30 minutes when the tide levels are just right. Fun on slalom gear, but I have never even gotten close to a PB there. Monday is WNW which is even worse for speed (not really flat in BH). Tuesday should be nice again for Kennedy Slicks or Egg Island. Plenty of wind these days!

Saturday and Sunday, we'll be sailing with an enthusiastic young French guy who lives near Montreal. He likes slalom (back from when La Franqui was close for him) and wants to start a GPS team in Canada. But maybe I'll convince him to join team USA first.
