I'm not seeing it.... Might be more fun though! Clearly if it makes gybing downwind necessary and downwind legs more tactical it would be a good thing. The takedown shrimp factor could be ugly though!
Thank Dan. I hope you noticed that I posted videos for the full event, all 7 contest days plus this practice day! Good luck in your training and I look forward to seeing you at a contest one day. Its an amazing puzzle this sport. Very satisfying to improve and understand nature better.
