  1. Leeward gates are becoming more and more common, and are already ubiquitous in most big regattas, but as far as I know race committee's don't have a best-practice for setting them, especially for asym boats and other fleets sailing hot angles downwind. Can anyone make suggestions on good resources or give their own two cents? I've always assumed 6-8 boat-lengths is a good standard, but in practice, that can be ~200 ft for a J/80 fleet. This seems very large and prone to error, and so I'm writing to ask on theory, but considering boats like A-cat's, 80's, Vipers, etc. Thanks, Niko
