In BOAT RACE, a boat can take the advantage by passing the starting line ahead of all the others.
If a boat crosses the line too early before the needle on the giant clock hits 0, it’s called a “flying start (F)”. If it crosses too late after the needle hits 1, it’s called a “late start (L)”.
In either case, the boat is scratched from the race and the bets on that boat are refunded. Be sure to hang on to your betting ticket.
