Short Track is the progression of the Theatre Style concept pioneered by the 49er class last decade. Each race is eight minutes long in a windward-leeward course, bounded on each side to keep the racing close and the fans closer. Here is a look back at the best moments of Short Track. 32 men’s and 32 women’s teams will qualify and compete for their share of the Prize Money. The competition will start at the quarterfinal stage, so that is four flights of eight boats each. 32 men’s and 32 women’s teams will qualify and compete for their share of the Prize Money. The competition will start at the quarterfinal stage, so that is four flights of eight boats each. (Insert Graphic) Each flight will consist of three races, and the top four boats from each group will advance to the Semi Final based on low point scoring. Likewise, the top four teams from the Semi Final will advance to the final. Consistency over a three-race series is thrown out the window for the final, where it will be the first team to win two races that wins the Championship. Each Semi-Final winner will carry a ‘win’ into the final, and each race the bottom two teams will be knocked out. Every race will matter, ever moment could make the difference!
