Close the door

Hi all !

Have a sweet Christmas fest.

One can find a quiz in the Finch web site : http://game.finckh.net/situat/tit_gbr/leeb04_e.htm. Choose the lefter icon. I wonder if the proposed answer (no pen) is correct or is it because there is a difference between fleet and team racing there ? Also, because Blue didnt close the door so no pen ? What do you think Harald ?

Hi Jean-Luc,

I clicked the left icon and got this one.
Is it the right one?

Answer is that red can't go in, which is correct.

But I also clicked the other situations, and the one to the right fits more your descripion.

It's correct that Blue can't close the door in the end of the situation, because her proper course is not to sail close to the mark (above close hauled).
But she can close the door earlier, for example when she starts turning slowly.
