Question of the Week: To drop, or not to drop (a race or two in scoring a series)

Thursday, August 23, 2018

NEWPORT BEACH, CA (#1089) – The Class Manager for the 49er, 49er FX and Nacra 17 Olympic classes, Ben Remocker (CAN), has penned a must-read editorial on the pros and cons of having discard (aka drop or throw-out) races. Your Ed. has long since argued that throw-out races should be, er, dropped for whole lot of reasons – ease of scoring, encourages better boat prep, rules compliance and less risky sailing in general, and much easier presenting the sport to non-sailors and sailors alike. Please do read Ben's editorial, and participate in his poll at the end of it if you are so inclined. Read it on the 49er website here.
