This was an excellent regatta with courses for keelboats, Optimists, mixed dinghies and the new SV14 Parasailing class. Winds varied from good to very light. The SV14 generated a lot of interest as a low cost two person disabled sailing boat, and comments on it were very favourable(this was its first regatta). The jury admin system from 'racing rules of' was trialed and generally worked well and integrated with the event website. Courses and race management were excellent, except that there was no way of shortening two of the long races which overran the time limit due to wind drop out. Perhaps a virtual GPS bounded finish line where physical marks are not available would save races. As always at this event onshore organization and hospitality was perfect. - HKGTS1
