6. What is the maximum wind speed in which racing should take place in protected waters such as the bay in Yalikavak? [Remember: your answer should be the maximum average wind speed. Gusts will be higher, lulls will be lower... The maximum gust we had in Yalikavak was 25knots. The max average was 20 knots approx. The Yellow/Gold Fleet sailed 5# races in less than 10 knots, 5# in less than 15 knots and 3# in less than 20 knots with a max of 18 knots on the start line]

9. If a class is split into groups, what is the maximum number of sailors to be assigned to one group? To state the obvious, more windsurfers in one group means a longer start line and a longer beat and consequently races that take more time to complete so think carefully before answering
