Race Committee and Rules

Races start precisely on the published start times.

Please do you best to be on time.

Lifejackets are mandatory for all races.

The race location will generally be in the vicinity of the host rendezvous for that weekend.  Please see schedule for locations.  Two races are attempted each race day, with a duration of approximately 45-60 minutes each.  A mandatory safety and recovery vessel will be on course for all races.

Races are run as best we can to the ISAF Racing Rules of Sailing 20013-2016.  A low point system is used to determine scoring with 1.0 for a first place, and other scoring your place.
