And the big surprise is Graeme Bird (3rd after day 3). He first sailed a RC model about 8 months ago. I know. I lent him mine. Don't you just hate that.

I think that if I were setting a course I would be tempted to have a VERY shallow trianle as in two spacer bouys about 7-10 mtrs apart at the windward end. I would be tempted to have two more bouys, - perhaps a little closer - at the bottom. This would be to give the umpires less work sorting out th...

The original post asked if there was ANY obligation for an umpire to correct an infringment (the example was a windwd boat leaning on a leeward boat all the way to the finish line. The umpire said nothing. The windward boat is listed as the winner). It seems that the answer is no, none whatsoever. S...

True, but hear no evil, see no evil? Umpires don't have to be baby sitters in any sport. Just spot infringments and act in the interests of fairness. Unless sailing is different to, say, cricket.
