PostHeaderIcon Dip Start

a starting maneuver where a boat remains on the course side of the start line and then dips behind the line just before the starting gun sounds, taking advantage of midline sag. If certain flags are displayed, this tactic will result in having to restart, getting a 20% scoring penalty or being disqualified. For penalties that are applied for rule violations at the start, see: Racing Rules of Sailing for 2013 – 2016 I Flag Rule 30.1, Z Flag Rule 30.2, and Black Flag Rule 30.3. See also: ZFP.
