Orange Severne 9.0 sails?
They were in Berkeley last week, mostly dusted in Sat races in winds 12-20, up in Gorge this week. IQ class?

Hi Gang,

Reports from people on site are that it was the Olympic Windsurfing Team practicing.

Hello All! My name is Colson Zack. Local gorge Foiler, wanted to fill you in on what was going on. I joined in on this event. It was a ODP (Olympic Development Program) Training camp for the 2024 & 2028 Summer Olympic Games. Then followed by a 2 day regatta. Our next event will be in San Francisco. Thanks for coming out to watch.

The Gear:

It is all Starboard IQ Foil One-Design gear set to be used in the 2024 & 2028 games. 9.0 Severne Sail, Starboard IQ Board, 95 X 220 @ 196L with the Starboard IQ Carbon Foil.

See you on the water!
Cheers

Very cool.

Is there a published calendar of events and/or do you know when/where they will be in SF?

9.0 sails, 177 liter boards, add foil= 70% of the fleet exploding.
Crissy would work only if it's fogged in.

9.0 in 25 plus is just terrifying. There may be athletes who can handle it, but fast?
