Top 10 Favorite Phrases on the Racecourse

Roman_140727_2191If you’ve ever been sailboat racing, you know that things can get pretty intense and people often shout incomprehensible phrases at each other. Here are my top 10 things to say to someone else when racing, or I suppose it is also the top 10 things I don’t want to hear someone else say to me on the racecourse!

  1. You can’t be there!
  2. No Overlap
  3. STARBOARD!
  4. LEEWARD!
  5. Coming Up!
  6. We are ladder rungs above them
  7. We are making trees on them
  8. AUTOTACK!
  9. Coming Up!
  10. I have no room to keep clear!

Hopefully, you will have some of your own to contribute in the comments below!

One of my favorites and it always gets the person on the receiving end of the comment flustered: “Does your Mother know you’re driving her boat like that?”
