    If you have any pull with the person doing the live updates, it would be great to know what the wind strength is when they give the direction.

    Good point, will send that request along.

    In the meantime, if I believe iWindSurf's Clearwater Beach graph, looks like wind was in the mid to upper teens around the start of racing, dropping to around 10 or so by now. Starting from North and shifting to Northwest.

    Thanks for asking them on the wind speed and thanks to them for including it - much better mental picture now (not that it's a good looking picture today)

    John B is having a fantabulous regatta. Maybe there's hope for Old Geezers like me....

    Kudos to JB for showing all the youngsters a thing or two. But the problem is that when some old geezer like him performs at such a high level it stops the rest of us from using the excuse that we are only slow because we are old. Slow down old man!
