How the Race is Run

  1. The start area is at C1 which is 45 minutes from the marina.  Plan on an hour with the traffic.

  2. A yacht class is started every 5 minutes until all classes are started.   First start is at 10:00am

  3. Yachts will cross the start line and go to the specified race marks.

  4. Yachts finishing should hail the race committee with their yacht name and size to help with identification.

  5. Race committee will respond with notice of finish.

Note:  This is to be a fun race and not a serious yacht race with all the yacht racing rules and protests. 
The race committee will shorten the course, if needed, to finish in time for the raft up schedule.
