Commentary

Sailonline expresses their sincere condolences to the Qingdaonese as Typhoon Muifa quite literally struck the city of Qingdao. From a Timed Race perspective however, the winning run was almost certainly going to be set by using the winds and wind shift of Muifa. Apart from Muifa and 18 September PM UTC, the winds were light and variable during the 2 week window.
A total of 173 completed attempts of this course were made by 80 skippers in the allotted 2 weeks; a summary of attempts is provided here. As Typhoon Muifa approached Qingdao, it was necessary to pay attention to its movement, as each Wx showed a significantly different typhoon path and hence optimal run to make. With rapidly changing conditions, all the eventual top 10 runs started in a 30 minute window centered on 15 September, 11.30am UTC and much depended on how well the roundings were made. But it was Pit8008 who not only perfected those roundings, but even slightly tweaked their path between wp1 and wp2 to gain those precious few seconds over the other podium sitters calmxy and Kipper1258. Congrats!
