    49erFX Opens Tight - 49er Legends Make Earn Start


    Men’s Skiff – 49er

    Peter Burling and Blair Tuke (NZL) made the perfect start to their competition winning both opening heats in the Men’s 49er. After a long wait for the wind to settle on the Pão de Açucar (Sugarloaf Mountain) race course, it was Jonas Warrer and Christian Peter Lubeck (DEN) who found themselves duelling with the New Zealanders at the front of the fleet. Warrer, the 2008 Olympic Champion, looked to have got the better of the Kiwis on the final lap and was leading down to the finish when he belatedly realised he had missed out the gate mark. The Danes reluctantly but hurriedly dropped their gennaker to resail the course correctly, leaving the way clear for an easy opening victory for Burling and Tuke. Warrer crossed in eighth, an expensive mistake that could cost him further down the line.

    I don't know what "make earn start" means.

    (I also expected to see something about Joe Montana or Jerry Rice when I saw "49er legends.")

    I guess it's a mistake. I found two texts in Google with it. One had removed the phrase:

    http://www.sail-world.com/Australia/...source=twitter

    The other still had it in the title and breadcrumbs:

    http://49er.org/blog/2016/08/13/49er...ke-earn-start/

    News on the internet is written at speed- mistakes are made, and not always corrected.
