This is why you don't use a RIB as the pin.

Amateur hour.  Yikes!  I love the boats that flop onto port and then force the starboard boats away.  Unreal.

My thoughts as well!  Thankfully these guys aren't approaching the line with any serious speed...

 

Pretty obnoxious looking fleet, flipping onto port tack knowing the start was recalled...

Ridiculous.  Next year the committee boat will have a steel hull outlined with razor wire.

Was it the 'Special Sailing' Worlds? I thought the Shit Box 20 fleet was supposed to be better than that.

Result of too many fleets that "don't like to protest."    People forget how to race properly.  So we're basically just sailing around buoys, not racing.

This is crazy!  Everyone just sitting in their boats acting like it was perfectly normal to ram the boat.
