GWSC Fabulous Fizz 03-01-2021

The new year in Fizz racing started with 9 racers, which caused some to complain about lag You never know of course, lag, or whatever it is that we sometimes call lag in SL can be quite personal. We had Justin back at the races for the first time in months and a few other familiar faces who joined in. The first course was on the infamous PITARAC course. No one understands this acronym, but since I won race 1 I will say what it stands for: β€˜Pain In The Ass Reach Angle Course’, named so by Giulia. Pain In The Ass refers to the first beam reach angle, which is a little technical. I find the following broad reach a bit harder actually, as it has the gennaker always near the point of collapsin or beyond it.
Anyways, one of these days I will make a T-shirt: β€œI <3 PITARAC”
The second race was on the much longer Left Ear course, the ear that Vincent van Gogh chopped off. This race was won by Paul. I didn’t know much of what was going on in both races as I was involved in cluse duels with Bianca, who’s overcome some initial setbacks and certainly has become a top Fizz sailor now.


9 boats. And yes, I lowered my draw distance as soon as I saw the fleet size.
