TRIANGLE, OLYMPIC
This is the name given in sailing to the competition course used for all boat and sailboard events.Contestants must keep the three buoys marking a triangle, the longest side of which is in the leeward axis, to port as they sail around them.In the case of a super-Olympic triangle, contestants must do an extra return lap between the first two buoys. The distance between these varies according to the class of boat race, from 0.75 to 3 nautical miles for multi-hulled boats (a nautical mile is about 1600 m).
