stars, rising and falling

starWe have a ton to say about this thing called the Star Sailors League. You probably know something about it, and while we find it sort of interesting, we also are sort of horrified by it as well. Our full analysis later tonight, but two things jump out at us right away: One, that Robert Scheidt (left with Bruno Prada) , fresh off his Laser World Champ title, is dominating the event, completely. Probably no real surprise, given the absolute talent that he clearly is.

Second is the absolute drilling that the sailor formerly known as Paul Cayard is receiving. Tied for last with 70 points after seven races, he seems to be a shadow of his former self, both literally and figuratively. We all hit the wall at some point, but we’ll bet Cayard didn’t see this one coming, this soon, this fast. We’d guess the residual failure of his performance, or specifically, the lack thereof, as (now fired) “CEO” of the Artemis AC team is going to linger for a long, long, long time. Oh well, they say old sailors don’t flame out, they fade away. Cayard may be one of the very few to actually do both…

Oh and for the record, we don’t hate Cayard, we’re just calling bullshit on the arrogance, the lack of actual results and the false idolization.  His fail and disappearance at Artemis ought to be enough for anyone to question him. That some of you don’t get it is kind of par for the course.
