Luca and Thilo were second and third with conventional C-boards and Eugenio Calabria was very fast on his C-board DNA too.
Mischa did win the way he did in Islamorada: pure sailing skills and some extra bodyweight. It is good to see a 90+kg guy go this fast.(see one of his excellent starts at Youtube)
Helmut Stumhofer sailed an excellent regatta and finished fourth on this Scheurer with J-boards.
Bob did hang in on his Exploder with J-boards but clearly missed practice in those circumstances.
At least 7 of the top 12 were foiling boats.
All foilers struggled in the leg to the offset mark. Sailing a reach is still challenging as you launch yourself quite easily. The sailors still do not know how to push the boat in a reach and are unaware of the limits. It is hard to sail a foiling boat if you cannot push it. Downwind the C-board boats got in a skimming mode sailing very effectively over the short waves. The foilers had some difficulties as he steep waves tend to change the angle of attack of the boards which caused many 'wheelies'.
In the 10-16 kts range the foiling boats clearly outpace the rest. It is good to see foiling Exploders, Scheurers and DNA's (and the Askell in France!, where is Bimare??)
