So all the votes so far are for "Don't ever abandon the race" then.

My thoughts -

Are you using permanent marks or marks laid specifically for the race?

Do you have the ability to move the marks without disrupting the fleet?

If you are using permanent marks then don't abandon.

If the marks are laid specifically for the race and you can move them without disrupting the fleet, do that and don't abandon the race.

If you are using marks specially laid, and they cannot be moved without disrupting the fleet then you have a difficult choice. 

However, abandonning is in my humble opinion a sop to those who believe that luck shouldn't be part of sailing - and these people will moan anyway.  But the more I practice the luckier I get, so personally I say race on!
