TO COVER OR NOT TO COVER
The semi-finals have seen some strange attitudes in the strategic decisions by the competitors, resulting in place changes. The strangest, perhaps, was in the second race between OneWorld and Prada. OneWorld led Prada going up the third windward led, but the Italian boat closed slightly with a shift from the left. When OneWorld came back to cover, it was in such a manner that Prada immediately went back, and the result was that by going deep that way, she picked another lefty and was ahead at the windward mark, going on to win the race.
