Miwha and Kaz

In Thursday’s Round Two opener three days ago, Silber Sands emerged the winner in her initial match-up against Cait (Viciously Llewellyn). However, everyone agreed the sims were awful that morning, and the conditions precluded sailors from truly competing at their level of ability. The problem was a grid-wide issue. Hawk, Quirky, Elbag, Equinox and Dennis worked very hard to optimize the race conditions in Fruit Islands, but some things are even beyond their combined, consummate control. 🙂

Saturday the weather cleared, however; the Fruit Islands races were absolutely great, despite a large crowds of spectators! The matches were exactly what they should be: exciting, head-on confrontations between skippers that tested their skill, determination, and raw courage. Here’s how the numbers played out, along with the first-match prestart videos for each pairing, courtesy of Hawk:

At the end of the match cycle, Hawk announced:

“The Fruit island award for the time trial qualifer for ACA cup will be awarded tomorrow at 11:00am SLT at Eden Victoria sim.  Tunes by Quirky while I get my act together!   Top 8 get gold medals, 9-16 Silver and remaining 8 bronze medals.    Silver Platter to the top three times in the ACA 3.0.    Medals to the the Lite racers for top 3.

The match races on Saturday were truly incredible, and I have much more to say about them, but that needs to wait for another day! If you missed the races, make sure to check your schedule and get there to see the Finals next week; they are going to be pretty wondrous!
