Another way to lose a race

Starting boats

The north wind was fickle. Wind is always fickle, as indicated by the grouchy wind god in the picture. In its attempt to annoy sailors, the wind switched from north to northwest just before the start of a race. Starting on port tack isĀ  OK, except an annoying starboard tack boat (in green) is attempting to sail down the line. Having little bravery and even less rights, the red boat ended up behind the green boat, and never had a chance to catch up.
