richard, I am a mere novice of just 45 years sailing and have seen plenty of these tactics in use. I agree that their use in club events is out of order but then neither you or I are serial Olympic gold medallists and to get there (just like being an F1 champ) means you exploit every advantage you can to win. Plus, when the rewards are measured in millions rather than in a few tins of beer, the attitude of the competitors is often very unsporting to we mere mortals.
