SLALOM COMPETITION RULES
Slalom races shall be sailed under The Slalom Competition Rules. The term ‘board’ elsewhere in the racing rules means ‘board’ or ‘boat’ as appropriate. The term ‘heat’ means one elimination race, a ‘round’ consists of several heats, and an ‘elimination series’ consists of one or more rounds.
To improve is to change; to be perfect is to change often.
A windsurfing event can include one or more of the following disciplines or their formats:
Course racing – Slalom – Marathon – Short Track
Wave performance – Freestyle
Standard Offshore Speed Course – Speed Crossings – Alpha Speed Course
In racing or expression competition, boards may compete in elimination series, and only a limited number of them may advance from round to round. A marathon race is a race scheduled to last more than one hour.
In expression competition a board’s performance is judged on skill and variety rather than speed and is organized using elimination series. Either wave performance or freestyle competition is organized, depending on the wave conditions at the venue. In speed competition a board’s performance is based on her speed over a measured course. Boards take turns sailing runs over the course. CHECK OUT the new uploaded file for more details HERE
