Congrats Sarah!

You worked hard for this and earned it! You single-handedly beat the best teams in the world. That's an extra impressive achievement.

Both French pilots flew exceptionally well except for the one bad outcome on Day 1. However, I would quibble with you that this represented a potentially decisively lucky break for Sarah.

If you look more closely at the scores, Sarah smoked the entire field on Day 1. The French pilots flew as a tight team, as is common. They were typically within 40-50 points of each other each day and the average points spread between them outside Day 1 was less than six points - the expected result of such a tight team strategy. On Day 1 the other French Pilot scored 752 points, so if they had flown together and finished together the French pilot who got a zero on Day 1 would still have come up 112 points short in the end. On only one day did the differential between the two French pilots exceed 112 points - it was 117 points and it cut the other way.

So my conclusion is it its extraordinarily unlikely that undoing the Day 1 zero score would've resulted in any difference on the top podium spot. It would most likely have resulted in a different outcome in 3rd place - which is nothing to sneeze at.

Congrats to all on some great soaring performances.

Sarah had her hands full with those two French pilots. They had practiced a lot together, they flew welded wing and their team coach was world champion Eric Napoleon.

Sarah was the best individual pilot.

Hip Hip Hooray!!!!


There's an F-18 flyby scheduled in a few minutes.
Sarah is truly an individual pilot. We are all really proud of her.
Jason dumped a bucket of water on Sarah as soon as the day was cancelled.
We all got wet from congratulatory hugs.
And my pal Kel (owner of XBY) has received loads of grief about flying slow. (evidently the glider is no longer an excuse)
Well done Sarah!

Aude flew the task on day one and placed second before the penalty. But it's a pointless discussion - Sarah undoubtedly would have flown differently if there was someone hot on the heels. Well done to Sarah.

Congratulations Sarah! And to the rest of the team as well--good Show! Hard to beat a team-flying team with a great coach! But, you did it!
