Why shouldnt the fastest boats get the best line at the start?What other motor sport start racing when the smoke stops.Its like musical chairs when you were a kid racing for a chair.And someone always got f#$%#ed. Mike you have to mill in a counter clockwise rotation even after the smoke stops.The smoke is only to let you know there is 3 min. or less till start time.YOU ARE NOT ALOUD TO BREAK THE MILL UNTIL THE PACE BOAT MOVES TO PICK YOU UP.
I agree with crash boxes and big seas you couldnt just sit there.
maybe you start a half mile back and all idle in gear to get your position.
Ive been in to many races that at the end everyone was pissed at how we were started.If they raise the flag to early and you arent there your beat.Its not the norm but it happens.
