IN THE BALANCE OF A YACHT RACE, PERFORMANCE MAY ODDLY ENOUGH BE THE LEAST DIFFICULT PART OF THE WHOLE VENTURE.
Just to show up on time on the starting line means that someone has taken care of everything before that moment, from the enrollment for the race to different measurements of the hull, sails etc.
To broaden the concept: boat transfer, setting up, crew trips, hotel, food and beverage, technical assistance and an endless series of unforeseen events (and the consequent solutions devised by those who have to manage them) have certainly been the focus in the weeks leading up to the sporting event.
WE OFTEN UNDERESTIMATE THE TEAM MANAGEMENT
The management of everything that happens before and after the race; in other words, team management is sometimes an overlooked aspect.
Poor organization can affect performance. Usually either the crew itself will take care of these aspects, or the owner himself is responsible for them, or else the boat will never be tuned up as it should be.
