Scott Young took the left end of the starting line in race 2. In this video you can see his start strategy, he is sail #177033 just past the orange chase boat. Sitting on the line, at 2 seconds before the start he leans his boat to leeward. At the start he pulls it back to accelerate acrose the line, then as soon as he's across he bears off a bit and does a quick roll tack to cut in front of all the racers still on starboard tack. A beautiful start to go on to win the race. Click the play button to see the video.
