3. Short course finish.  This is a bit "cartoonish" as the real finish is not quite this large or exaggerated.  But it gives you the perspective of being in water approaching Cinnamon Cay gate (right hand turn).

04 Long view to Windswept

4. Long View to Windswept.  This is the one of the most important features you can find. If you can..... stop by the beach at Cinnamon on Saturday when you get in and take a look from the beach just east of the ruin of the archeology building on the shore.  THIS MARK WORKS VERY WELL if you know it, see it and navigate to it.

5. Around Windswept.  this is just a further out in the course view of that notch. Again, the real buoys are smaller than this. In the picture, the triangular buoys I put there are a little too far "out" from shore. TRUST THE NOTCH as a navigational point to swim to.

6. Into Trunk. Again, a little exaggerated but you see what it looks like. Race flags, buoys and banners are smaller in real life.

7. Long view to Perkins - this is another critcal mark to see and follow.  It works very well to define a straight line.

9. Entering Hawksnest.  Just remember not to go across this bay, but head 'into' the bay, like you are going to Oppenhimer Beach.  The video shows this well.
