  1. RACING PROGRAM

– Windward-leeward course, once around. (start, weather mark, spinnaker set, finish)

– 2/3 nm legs. Total distance = 1.3 nm (Don’t blink…It happens fast!)

– Small fleets of 3-5 tightly grouped boats. Lots of tight racing and close finishes.

– Multiple rounds of races. (5-6 races for all fleets…wind and weather permitting)

– Continuous starts/finishes with finish line opposite starting line. The action never stops!

– “Special” rules to keep things interesting…including:

            – Shorter starting sequences to move things along…no long wait between races.

            – PORT/STAR roundings alternated for each set of races. You gotta pay attention.

            – One-turn penalty vs two…so you’re still in the game.

            – No throw-outs. (They all count!)

** This regatta counts toward the HYC CUP Championship.
