Finishing

  • Remember the race isn't over till the finish!
  • Don't jam the boat (pinching, over sheeting) keep calm.
  • Sail the shifts (don't get out of synch).
  • Is the committee boat putting out a wind shadow? (take care if it's a large launch or yacht).
  • The finishing line can be biased just as much as a start line.
  • Decide on the favoured end while sailing downwind.
  • Try to push your opposition to the unfavoured end of the finish line.
  • If in front: cover, stay between the competition and the mark. Cover hard if necessary.
  • If behind, make those in front work for their place. Don't just follow them and hope something happens take a risk it may come off but even if it doesn't what have you lost.
