Very good point and as far as I am concerned would be a very fair request.  Supprised Booth did not try it on.

I guess no-one ever expected measurement to be such a big issue ... best bit of the games so far as the racing has been dire ...

Well bugger me sideways! Thats a bit of a risk innit!? I've heard its not as quick around the course when there is decent breeze has anyone heard different?

Also I was just thinking unless it gets re-instated who ever wins gold could be Olympic Tornado Champion for ever.


Are you GRF in disguise?

Ummm No!

Ever since hes been banned a couple of people have been accused of being GRF in disguise. Maybe people are just that desperate for him to come back?

Anyway this thread is seriously in danger of going off topic!... Save that sort of guff for banter!

Rick obviously you are not aware of Mitch and his past measurement big issues.... Mitch has this uncanny way of arriving at measurement with something new...this year at the worlds it was his centreboards

Slighty different shape at the head of the board which completley closed up the centeboard slot when in the fully down position.  Something himself and Johny Goldsmith the class measure have been sparing over for some time now.  Day one of the T Worlds was really cancelled when the tryed to outlaw Booths boards.  He then protested the way board measurments were done at the event, resulting in remeasurements......  Hence the practice day was scraped.

 

The boards were then confirmed to be within the class rules.
