I have found that winning includes in order of priority:

1. showing up
2. finishing all the races
3. not crashing
4. not having a mechanical problem (like a broken shackle, rivet, or pin that disables your boat)
5. not doing something tactically stupid (like going around the wrong mark or sailing the wrong course)
6. going fast

1.5 Not doing something tactically stupid that takes out the front runner for the rest of the day, ruining his day.
