SYC Sea Race
August 24, 2019
Today: Sundowner Race Handicap start at 17.00hrs
Friday : 23rd Sundowner Race Handicap start at 17.00hrs
Saturday 24th : Sea Races as below
Subject to there being sufficient wind, but not too much wind; my intention is to run Bucket and Spade Races 4 & 5, back to back in the range.
The races shall be windward – leeward; using the SYC Orange pillar buoys;
start between committee boat and leeward mark;
finish between committee boat and leeward mark (unless shortened);
marks to port;
number of laps to be displayed on a board on the committee boat;
2nd race ASAP after 1st race finish.
I understand from Jules encyclical that the 1st start is advertised for 12.00; so I propose the following sequence;
11.55 First warning signal
12.00 Cadet/Juniors Start
12.10 Handicap Start
12.20 Yawls Start
If we are to race at sea; flag C will be flying from the Watch House at around 11.00 AM (as will most likely be a lifejacket flag).
