They may have made route decisions relative to other boats or the wind conditions at the time which would be different by the time you reach the same position or on the next lap At inland venues just because something worked on lap one it will not necessarily work on lap two. Whilst it is good to watch what others do, try to work out why it worked to help you make your decision. Finally, remember: if you have not been able to understand what was going on, go and ask the experienced sailor after the race - they are usually more than willing to help!"
