It appears that only race 5 had BFDs. And you expect aggressive starting at this level...
Current could be the reason for the OCS disqualifications.
PS: It's been awhile, but my old mind seems to remember mostly Black Flag starts at the Worlds that I attended. One hundred boats in those days, which made life a lot harder on the RC (and the sailors).
BFD = Black Flag Disqualification This is over the line within on minute of the start with a black flag flying
OCS = On the course side also known as over early
RAF = Retired after finish Probably fouled someone and thought about it during the race and did not do 720 so did the right thing and dropped out after the race.
Does anyone know what was really wrong witht he center boards, too big can mean a lot. Were they too long or too big front to back or too wide and did not fit the trunk. The pictures of show a black top on the boards, what is this about.
Sure wish I was there but I am working 70 hours a week and was not able to make it.
Results after three days of racing have been posted on the Dutch site. But there appear to be some errors in the ranking. For instance, Ard van Aanholt is listed in 37th place, but should be in third place, I think, with 38 points.
Top five after nine races (preliminary!):
Jonathan Martinetti: 20 pts
David Mendelblatt: 25
Ard van Aanholt 38
Just van Aanholt 40
Conner Blouin 49
The young guys are taking over, but (not so young) Mendelblatt could still win it all...
