Since SYC does not use the Blackett mark I never paid attention to that situation. However, if you will notice, all the marks on SYC courses can be seen up to two sims away (maybe more?).
Here is the trick. the SL engine draws objects based in part on the "weight" of those objects. Small low prim objects such as marks are low on the draw list and get drawn after "larger" objects. What I have done with the SYC marks is create a 10m cylinder (you can use any shape), make it invisible and phantom, sink it under the mark, and link it to the mark.
Presto. You mark can be seen "miles" away.

If you know a fizz runs 10-20 m/s at novice mode.. this is no fun. I was happy to have sailed those courses many times in the past to avoid total loss of direction.
