play / setup / match racing
Match racing involves two boats racing against each other in a one-on-one duel. The course is simple but the aim is not only to sail fast but also make the other boat go slow. Renowned match racing events include the America's Cup, the Congressional Cup, the Prada Cup, Sail GP and many more. The general rules of sailing hold, but there are some significant amendments due to the considerable size and speed of match sailboats.
