Magic Marine Starting Points Challenge

Starting is such a critical skill for success in sailing.  To highlight the skills that are successful on the start line we have created a points scoring format at the 2013 SAP 49er European Championships to see if we can make some links between a good start and a good race finishing position.

Points will be awarded in 6 categories

  • First mark round positionEnds
  • Distance to the Line at the STart
  • Winning the pin end
  • Winning the  committee boat end
  • Having a lane 1 min after the start
  • The port tack flyer!

The points will be awarded after the racing from the SAP analytics system every day and the winner of each day will then be given a green jersey for the next days sailing.
