Hand signals for a bow person

Hey Guys,

can you help me out here. After a year of racing my crew is pretty okay in boat handling and becoming more and more proficient in trim. We're moving up in the fleet so everything is going well. What I am wondering about is what hand signals are you guys using for the bow person to communicate in the pre start to the driver and tactician? I.e. distance to the line, luffing and bearing, accelerating, de-accelerating. We're still working out a system and some tips would be helpful.
