Match Race Academy on the Course: Trap at the finishing line 2


Our friend Eric has posted 2 new cases, again finishing line situations.
The main question how can I make a trap working, specially when leading close to the finishing line and having an outstanding penalty.
How much can you open the up a finishing line vessel in ordre to get the opponent in and the close the hole by still respecting the rule 16 (changing course).

Thank you to leave a comment at the end of the post.
