It has more in common with water based sailing with 2-3 minute dial-up starts and windward/leeward courses.
Saint Lucia's local brand of beer made by the Windward & Leeward Brewery is named after the Pitons.
Piton is a Pilsner beer brand from the island of Saint Lucia, brewed by Windward & Leeward Brewing Limited, which is owned by Heineken.
All races were run on a windward-leeward course consisting of four legs with legs 1 and 4 being in length, and legs 2 and 3 being for a total of .
Each regatta consists of ten races, a mixture of windward / leeward and coastal courses. A low points scoring system based on the final standings of each individual race rewards consistency among the fleet.
Race one, a windward - leeward course with legs, saw BMW ORACLE Racing's trimaran winning by 15.28 minutes. In race two, a triangle, with legs, the Challenger crossed the finishing line ahead by 5.26 minutes.
Up to six match races were held each day on a short windward-leeward course laid at the entrance to Auckland's Waitemata Harbour, between Rangitoto Island and the city foreshore. Four different courses were used depending on weather patterns.
Compared to the windward-leeward courses, random leg courses tend to be over longer distances, involve a larger number of factors that need to be considered, and require the use of more and a greater variety of skills—fetching and reaching, in addition to beating and running, calculating the true wind angle for each leg, the best sail combination for each point of sail, the fastest route to the next mark, whether the boat will be slower or faster than the main competition on a particular leg, how to take advantage of that differential, etc., making random leg races more versatile than windward-leeward races.
Piton is a Pilsner beer brand from the island of Saint Lucia, brewed by Windward & Leeward Brewing Limited, which is owned by Heineken. The beer was named for the Gros Piton and Petit Piton mountains on the island. It was first brewed on October 7, 1992.
For the Elliott 6m the majority of racing took place on course area N (Nothe), however some racing also occurred in race area P. The location "(50° 36.18’ N 02° 25.98’ W)" points to the center of the Nothe course area. The target time for the course was 18 minutes. All races were conducted on windward/leeward course configurations of 2 laps.
The first illustrations known to Europeans appeared around the middle 19th century in Europe, ushering in a period of interest in the design. Working from the drawings and descriptions of explorers, western builders often took liberties with the traditional designs, merging their interpretation of native designs with Western boat building methods. Thus this Western "proa" often diverged radically from the traditional "proa" to the point that the only shared feature was the windward/leeward hull arrangement.
Among the innovative concepts he brought to sailboat racing was the concept of gates instead of a single windward or leeward mark in large regattas. The leeward gate on a windward-leeward course is commonly used. The windward gate is less often used due to the difficulties in managing right-of-way around the right gate, the subtleties of which are understood mostly by match racers.
The first race, on September 7, 1895, was set to be a windward-leeward course of fifteen miles length. The Weather for the day was described as light and shifting wind. In the first leg of the course the racing was close with "Defender" taking a slight lead by the windward mark. After rounding the mark the wind shifted, turning the running leg into a reaching leg, as a result "Defender" quickly increased its lead against "Valkyrie III". "Defender" crossed the line eight minutes and forty-nine seconds ahead of "Valkyrie III" to win the first race.
Racing is one of the most popular forms of dinghy sailing, and it contributes to the development of sailing skills as well as to improvements in dinghy and sail construction and design. Sometimes the Olympic triangle is used as a course for dinghy races where space permits, particularly for events where there ought be little local advantage such as State and National titles and for classes which are mainly displacement sailing such as the Heron (dinghy). The olympic triangle is the most popular choice for dinghy racing, but a windward leeward course is another popular option.
A random leg course race, also known as a 'fixed course race' or a 'point-to-point race' is a type of sailing race where the race course may require beating, reaching, and running, and where the rounding marks may be chosen by the race committee without considering the actual wind direction or weather conditions. This contrasts with the more common windward-leeward courses, also known as 'buoy races' or, more colloquially, 'sausage races' that are set dead upwind or dead downwind with no reaching legs.
The racing is carried out on set dates in a variety of locations including Hamilton or St. George's Harbours, Granaway Deep, and Mangrove Bay. The dinghies sail windward leeward courses and the number of legs is decided based on the conditions at race time. Boats always finish to windward. The boats, despite their small sizes, are each normally crewed by six people, necessary to handle the large areas of sail, and also to continually bail the dinghies, which have very little freeboard, and which are often capsized by powerful gusts. A unique rule to racing states that the number of crew to finish a race can be less than the number that started. This can encourage boats to have crew dive off the transom during a race to push the boat forward, help lighten the boat and increase performance.
Race seventeen saw two penalties at the start against Emirates Team New Zealand. During the prestart Dean Barker made his move too early, allowing Spithill to hook Barker. Oracle then took full advantage of their windward-leeward right of way, forcing Barker to try and stay out of the way. Due to the extremely low boat speed at the time, Team New Zealand was unable, and there was contact between the two AC72's as a second penalty was awarded against the Kiwis. By the time the penalties had been completed, Oracle had accelerated away to find themselves up by 18 seconds at the reach mark. Oracle built this to a 29-second lead to leeward gate although this was trimmed to 19 seconds at the end of the third leg. Oracle went on to win by 27 seconds and cut Team New Zealands lead to 7–8.
Dinghys typically race around a windward-leeward race course. There is a start/finish "line", set up perpendicular to the wind, marked by a committee boat at one end, and a buoy on the other. At the end of five minutes, competitors are allowed to cross the line and begin to race to the next mark. The next mark is called the windward mark. The windward mark is placed directly upwind from the start/finish line. Competitors must round the mark going counter-clockwise. After rounding the windward mark, the fleet now heads towards the leeward mark. The leeward mark is positioned directly downwind from the windward mark, below the start/finish line. Sailors also round this mark counter-clockwise. After rounding, competitors head upwind to cross the finish line.
Virtual Skipper 5 is the 5th installment of Nadeo's Virtual Skipper series for Windows. It is a series of sailing simulator games targeted at semi experienced sailors rather than normal gamers. This installment concentrates particularly on the 32nd America's cup held in Valencia Spain in 2007. The game allows the user to take the helm of a number of different classes of boat including. International America’s Cup Class, Melges 24, Offshore Racer, Trimaran, Open 60 and even more are available as add-ons from unofficial sources. Single player allows competitions in both match racing and fleet racing, while multi player allows the above two and team racing. The races take place around a number of different types of course in a number of different settings ranging from Valencia, to Sydney, to Rio and many more. The typical race course is a windward leeward course with a gate at the leeward end.
Initially designs were heavy displacement, with a fine, often V shaped stern as well as a fine bow. These were powerful boats for sailing to windward, but had limited performance offwind as well as often having an alarming tendency to broach - designers included Sparkman & Stephens and Dick Carter. Then Ron Holland's quarter-tonner "Eygthene" began the next phase of increasingly lightweight boats with fuller sterns giving more of a wedge shape, and a change from masthead rig to a fractional rig. This dinghy influence gave much faster performance reaching and downwind, and although windward performance was not as good it improved as the designs developed. The ultimate in this stage was the various lightweight centerboard designs with internal ballast, but these were not sufficiently seaworthy for offshore racing and so were penalised so heavily that they were effectively banned. Designs then moved to a more moderate displacement, and as race courses moved from offshore racing with plenty of reaching towards windward/leeward round the cans racing designs became narrower and less powerful but more easily driven.
