Good night of racing in slightly lighter winds! At the 5:00pm skippers meeting the whole fleet was convinced 9M was the kite, but by 5:15 it was 11M or even 13M. It was a nice break from the winds we have seen since the beginning of June.
Johnny Heineken and Daniela Moroz were notably absent tonight giving a chance for some others to be at the top of the pack. Will Cyr (1,1,1) convincingly took the bullet baton from Johnny taking all three races.
Air Games Tarifa Men – When Nicolas Delmas and Maxime Chabloz both unleashed massive kite loop front blind mobe attempts merely 20 yards from the shore with the first 20 seconds of their heat, it was clear that the boys had built up a lot of anticipation as they’d been made to wait two days to complete their last heat of round four.

The best way to describe the ensuing ten miles is side-chop. The first half of the race was 90% right side paddling and the second half 90% left side. The wind was southwest. There was chop from that combining with a south swell combining with a northwest wind swell combining with backwash. Pretty sweet. So sweet, in fact, that during the race the safety team decided to shorten the race.

Race One started with all but Johnny Heineken (1,1,1) and Joey Pasquali (3,4,3) starting on starboard. Johnny and Joey just squeaked across the fleet and headed out. As the fleet tacked out Joey and Johnny were looking launched, but as we got closer to the lay line the fleet inside clearly had more pressure. At the windward mark it was Joey, then Johnny but followed by Daniella Moroz (2,2,5) and Kai Calder (4,7,9)
Joey Pasquali (8,2,3) reached the lay line first coming in fast on the starboard. Daniella Moroz on a 19M kite went to tack inside but she got lofted and Joey couldn’t avoid quickly enough. Both Joey and Daniella ended up swimming. Next came Johnny Heineken (4,1,1) and Gabriel Wicke coming in as the carnage was unfolding.
