Presumanly your point is that this is just another example of that all encompassing value for money represented by a well made laser sail?

Well said Poesje. I did indeed notice that Mr. Barshi's sail (I think it's him) does appear to be a little tired.

But no, that wasn't really my point. I was really wondering how the Racing Rules of Sailing (or even the COLREGs) applied in this situation of a kitesurfer crossing a starboard tack Laser. Can we even work out what tack the kitesurfer is on? Is he windward or leeward?

This is not a trivial issue when sailing at Cabarete!

Don't think a Laser sail would be tested this way, but a coworker who races catamaran was crewing for someone, and the someone let a hull lift too far and my coworker fell thru the main.
