Despite plenty of organizational touting of ‘a new world record’ fleet of nearly 200 F-18s for this week’s Kiel Worlds, the actual fleet fell far short, but you’ve gotta love the strength of a fleet that’s disappointed by ‘just’ 167 entries.

Meanwhile, it’s a real battle royale at the front between 7 different nations, but after 6 races, it’s the Spanish-flagged father/son team of Mitch and Ruben Booth leading reigning World Champ Gunnar Larsen on the tiebreak.  The Booths are on a fresh-from-the-factory Wildcat; if you’re looking for a fast fleet that allows out-of-the-box boats and decade-old designs to race competitively, this is the one.

There’s live tracking here, decent but low-res photos over on the event Facebook page, and some truly awful videos here.  Find our title inspiration over here, and if you have daddy issues, bring a tissue.
