Water Drill 19-Windward Mark Sprint

Racing Course

Goal: Mark rounding rules and tactics

Skill Level 5




Use reaching start to create congestion at the windward (offset) and leeward marks. Pin should be slightly ahead to favor the leeward boat. Downwind leg should be very short. Emphasize zone, overlap, pinwheel, wide/tight concepts. Combine with weight-balance, steering, trimming techniques. Return to start/finish should be single tack to clarify winner.
