    Corley, I found the boats I'm interested in. I followed this a year or two ago when the Quant 28 was racing. Thanks for starting this thread-I'm concentrating on a project and probably would have forgotten! Where did you find the wind forcast? Good wind=foilers win!
    Start: 7am EST
    in no particular order:
    1) MLX --Mirabaud the monofoiler-- Class: NJ-TCFX
    2) Alianz_Hirstanden Klinik--Quant 30--Class:TCF1+2
    3) Alinghi 1 and Lady Cat- D35's--Class: M1
    4) MARWIN--GC32 foiler--Class: M1
    5) RSmdtm Hungary--GC32 foiler--Class: M1

    This is interesting:

    -Article 18 of the Racing Instruction (previously entitled "Heeling Compensation Systems") has been radically changed. Trapezes are still allowed for NJ, M1, M2 and other classes that permit them. However, it is now prohibited for any boat not belonging to class NJ to be equipped with any system using non-manual energy to trim standing or running rigging, including spars and movable hull appendages (per Article 52 of the ISAF Racing Rules of Sailing), as well as movable ballast. Thus, no electric or hydraulic systems are allowed. For example, powered winches, powered swinging keels or powered movable ballasts are prohibited. All BOM participants in the SRS classes with such equipment must prove that its use has been deactivated and rendered unusable during the race.

    If you click on the meteo tag on the map it will take you to the weather prediction.

    "They are in for a sustained Kiss." Microsoft translator! Looks like strong to very strong wind......

    Ladycat 1st overall, her husband 3rd. No sign of the GC32's!
    UPDATE-- first GC32 was 1hr and 12 minutes behind Lady Cat(Decision 35) ! No sign of the second GC32 from Hungary.

    I'd like to know the story-seems like a disappointing result for the foiler. And I can't find Mirabaud anywhere so far. And my friend on the DSS boat did very poorly.......

    Halfway the lake going up, MARWIN was with the front of the M1 pack. RSmdtm was already way behind. When de D35's were battling it out at the finish, MARWIN was only about halfway the lake, coming down. Couldn't find the track of RSmdtm by then.

    A little correction, Ernesto is Dona's brother not her husband.
