Race Course

 

 

  • The course consists of 9 marks, 8 of which are radially spaced on the cardinal and inter-cardinal points, approximately one nautical mile around the center mark “0”.
  • The first leg of each race will be sailed to weather (the first mark to be sailed to is the first number posted on the Committee boat).
  • The course will be displayed prior to the warning signal. For example, a course starting at mark 4 (wind from the North): 8 6 4 8 4 8 will be posted on the Committee boat.
  • Windward Leeward courses may be set in place of the traditional Triangle Sausage.
  • The configuration of the course shall be at the discretion of the Race Committee as conditions warrant.
  • The Race Committee reserves the right to start/finish a race at any mark as conditions warrant.
  • The Race Committee will attempt to post changes on the Race Notice Board before any race. However, skippers are obliged to listen for any hail and/or watch for any signals from the Committee boat regarding course changes.
  • Failure of the Race Committee to set proper course in accordance with the foregoing instructions shall not constitute grounds of protest.
