Key West Race 3 video

Blatantly obvious from this video why they did not win!!!



If you look closely(you tube) , there are quiet a few video/tv clips from Key West by an Italian tv crew.

Was fun watching it pan out on Livestream yesterday huh Steve?!! Almost as good as being there, apart from the audio break ups and occasional downlink time! Hats off though to SBI for putting it all together and allowing us to watch at all.....

The larger gentleman needed a better seat or more headroom - a 5 or 6 point harness would also have been a bit of a help!

I think they may have exceeded the operational limits of that suspension seating during that race!

Be good if the RYA did it over hear for Cowes!!! SBI are proud of there Key West event and so should we with Cowes.

Italians disqualified in race 3

Looks like that Metamarine was disqualified for an Course Infraction on Lap 5 in race 3!!!!!

Here is a poorly google translation of an email I received from Metamarine this morning, I don't think they are very happy!

The big joke!
Sorry, disappointed and even a little angry, we learned the news of the disqualification for irregularities ... Key West 2012 final ranking fifth overall ..

Domina go home with the knowledge that you have made ​​a spectacle, be enjoyed and to demonstrate what it means, MADE IN ITALY ... today many teams were Americans and not that sporty appearance or even made ​​us compliments .. .. thanks to all ... italian do it better ... the Italians are good!!

On such a small course I would have thought that was almost impossible! Would be interesting to find out where they allegedly went wrong.
