Course Guide, New Mexico Sailing Club Racing
In the version of the Olympic Circle that many sailors are familiar with, the races begin and end in the middle of the circle. We are establishing a small Olympic Circle and will be racing from one side to the opposite side, so the courses are adapted from the traditional courses. In a larger Olympic Circle, course G would go from the center to the windward mark, then down to a leeward mark, and back upwind to the finish. Here we have no leeward mark, so the start/finish pin does extra duty as a rounding mark between the second and third legs of the race for course G.
Course W takes advantage of a popular geographic feature of Heron Lake and Course T is reserved for special distance races.
