Question 1


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.

    I have no problem both fleets racing together, it’s more exciting and more interesting. It ups everyone game. I agree they should all be in the same race.

    I would be happy with this. My only concern would be that I think all boats that start together should be racing against each other, otherwise rules and etiquette can get confusing.

    Wholly agree, the only reason that the fleet split was due to large numbers on the start line.
