1. One start if there are limited numbers at Open Meetings
If a situation occurs when there are less than 20 boats or less than 8 boats in one fleet, then we race together with one start. There would still be prizes for red and blue fleet boats. The ultimate decision would be down to the Yacht Club and it would depend on the state of the tide, how busy the harbour is, strength of wind, etc. The idea being that it would be good to race together as one fleet, give less pressure on the watch house and rescue boats, provide better integration in the bar afterwards and generally unite the fleet on and off the water.
