Updated Sailing Instructions

Luke Parker

the Sailing Committee has reviewed and updated the Sailing instructions.  They will be posted on the website shortly, but here's a summary of few important changes.  Comments in italics 

 

  • If there are fewer than six (6) boats sailing a 4.7 sail size during any race the radial and 4.7 fleets may be combined into one fleet and start the race together. (Ie Radials need to be alert and don't assume anything because your count might be different to the PRO.)

 

  • Where a course is shortened by removing a leg of the course, a Race Committee boat near the leeward mark (mark 3 on Annexure 1) will display Code Flag C with repetitive sounds. Boats shall then finish by sailing to the original finish line -- between the Committee Boat and blue cylinder mark.  (ie Allows us to drop one full lap and finish through usual line)

  • Competitors are encouraged to not pass through the finish line during the race, except when finishing. There is no penalty for doing so, but avoiding the finishline aids the Committee in recording finishers. (Good manners.  Not so vital early in the race, but very  important if boats are finishing)

 

  • if a boat looks unlikely to finish within 15 minutes of the first finisher, the PRO may elect to finish them on course to expedite the race. (Slower boats can be officially finished and the PRO can get on with starting the next race)
