Everyone knows it's windy
RE: Why are "point-to-point" courses not record eligible?

Ahem, it is near impossible for wind to remain steady over a long course. It can come from any direction, even if predominantly from one direction -- current eddies. And, on the track winds under 2 meters/sec are okay for record purposes. Rather than a silly ban on point-to-point, make it a not record eligible if the average wind speed along the course is greater than X meters/sec in the direction of travel. Actually, a wind speed rule should be applied to all courses, yes, even the loopy courses.
