Boody Posted September 9, 2008 Share Posted September 9, 2008 In reviewing the below rule regarding having slack, I still have some questions.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Does this essentially mean that if you have slack, ski back to the boat guides, take the hit, but hang on you still only get 1/2?Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Even if you ski away?Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â If thats the case, it makes it too subjective for the judges to interpret how much slack is too much.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â They should just make is so if you ski away, you get the bouy, if you don't, you get a 1/2.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Am I interpreting this wrong?ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œ1 point when the skier has crossed the line of the gate buoys before passing the level of the next buoy (or the end gate in the case of the final buoy) with a tight line under the power of the boat without falling.ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚ÂThere is no reason to break your back or hurt the boat crew if you end up inside the first set of boat guides with a slack line.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â It will only be scored a Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â½.There is a slight difference in the wording of the rule between AWSA and IWSF, but the intent is to be the same.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â IWSF rules apply for class L and R events, which are run according to ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œworldÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â rules. Following is the Official Interpretation of this:There are no differences between AWSA and IWSF.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â To receive credit for a full buoy score all of the following must occur: The skier must cross the near boat guide buoy line The skier must have a tight line while crossing the boat guide buoy line The skier must be under the power of the boat (IE being towed by the boat) when crossing the boat guide buoy line The above is true for all buoys except that for six ball, where the skier is permitted to have slack going through the exit gates.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â If the skier skies away then they may continue.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â If the skier does not ski away, the turn ends and the skier scores 6 provided they went through the exit gates with or without a slack lineÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
