Once my J/105 team got its crew work down and modified each and every position, we then applied it to match racing. We took the same approach as we did the crew work. We created a choreographed step-by-step plan for each common match-racing move. For example, upon entering the starting box on port, we had choreographed a move such that, if we had enough windward separation during the dial-up, we would swing behind the starboard boat and sail past its transom. It might sound easy, but it requires precision crew work. First, you enter, then you slow down while dialing up, then the bowman backs the jib to port, the trimmer then takes over the back, the main gets eased all the way and the entire crew gets onto the windward side of the boat. All this must be coordinated for the move to work.
