Hmm-  not explained that very well have I!?

An example of what I mean is at the start of  this video of a Sunfish apparently passing a fast looking trapeze boat while going about twice as fast!!

You should call Charlie and see if he can weave you a deal,
you'll have until September to save up... you're not that
far off are you.

The 'Viking' contingent is hotting up.. there's RS100s on
order for Denmark, Sweden, Norway and Finland on the
Scandinavian front and they're all talking together about
doing some joint racing (thus the DEN letters on some of
the press shots). Could be a recipe for Brit RS100 sailors
to nip over and 'pillage' perhaps..

I think your explanation was far more understandable than Wikipedia! Wikipedia really suffers from geeks trying to show off how clever they are by going into far much detail.

Far too busy partying and going sailing !

Isn't that what student loans are for ?

Managed to buy a complete quiver of Neil Pryde windsurfing sails and some
nice boards with mine - actually it was a grant in those days (same thing but
you didnt have to pay it back !).
Not now Kato (you fewl) !
