super fast scores

Post by 30knotwind » Mon Sep 24, 2007 6:32 am

Jerome,
How could you possibly score 1 21 on slalom 2 and 7 23 on slalom 8!
It is very hard to believe!

Hi Chris,

On Slam2 yesterday, everything went perfect: Almost perfect start, Jibes started with plenty of speed to lose a minimum of speed during it, and at the end of each jibe always landing on top of a wave. I was probably lucky with the wind conditions, too. Using Hawaii is necessary for this, as Almanarre is rather flat at the end.
Slam8 was not as "perfect" as this, but use Hawaii is necessary, too.
I only recommend one: Speed, speed and speed. Never go below 45 knots during regular sailing. :P
Anyway, I had to try quite a few times to achieve this, so must have Toy to get his 50.18 knots... :wink:

ok. I trust you, but taking off 4 seconds from my last score seems very unlikely and the method you describe does not seem much different than mine! :? :(

BTW, I don't think you wanted to use 'derogatory' in your reply, I think 'necessary' is better. (derogatory has a negative definition)

Maybe, rather than shattering course records you should be working on WS2008 so that I can win WS2007 in Sept. and do some wave sailing on WS2008 in Oct.! :wink:

On Race1: don't take too extremely upwind-oriented settings, because it will slow you down on the downwind sequence: just what you need to reach the upwind buoy in 1 run! As for the rest, using the swell as much as possible to keep a high speed all the time! :wink:

PS: I am quite frustrated currently not to be allowed to compete with you guys!
