Team Race Monday

Today we will work on Team Racing: PINNING & PASSBACKS
–Boathandling: accelerations, slowdowns (how to), basic Pins & Passbacks. Here is a basic Mark 1 Passback

— We will do simple boat vs. boat pins, then 3 boat drills, then maybe 4 boat drills, then maybe a team race.

PIN DRILL UP— FTL in pairs. Round a leeward mark with one boat clear ahead. That boat will attempt to PIN the other boat and not allow that boat to sail through the finish line, or delay as LONG as possible.
PIN DRILL DOWN — FTL in pairs. Round a windward mark with one boat clear ahead. That boat will attempt to SLOW and maybe even PIN the other boat and not allow that boat to sail to mark 3, or delay as LONG as possible. The longer the better!

PIG IN THE MIDDLE— Same thing, sail around a leeward mark with an opponent in the middle. Make sure that the opponent crosses the line in 3rd.

TERMS

Pin 
Term used to describe preventing an opponent from maneuvering in a given direction.  Normally this is done to prevent an opponent from tacking or gybing to get to a mark, or to hold them outside the starting line in an effort to prevent the opponent from starting.

Passback 
Term used to describe slowing an opponent in open water in an effort to pass a trailing teammate ahead of that opponent.  Normally this is accomplished by Ragging or Pinning the opponent during the Passback.  Types of Passbacks include: Straight PassbackTack Out Passback, and Speed Passback.
