STARTING TIME:  Staggered starts, beginning at 1300. (Fastest boat starts last!) See below.

INSTRUCTIONS: The start time for each yacht will be posted at the registration table in the HYC lounge.  Starting times are established by applying a PHRF handicap allowance (CR) plus a Non-Spin credit (if applicable). Boats with Non-Spinnaker credits may fly double-headsails if they choose. Starting on-time is the sole responsibility of the skipper.  Time signals will be announced on VHF-72 at 1255 and again at 1300.  Boats starting prematurely will be hailed via VHF-72 and required to restart. No Flag “X” will be displayed. After starting, racing is boat-for-boat (first to finish wins!).  The RC will record and post the order of finish. To relieve congestion and facilitate identification of premature starters, a yacht may not maneuver within 100 yards of the starting line until 4 minutes before its starting time.

CLASSES: All boats must meet PHRF of the Chesapeake Near Shore Safety and Equipment Requirements and have a current, valid PHRF certificate. Crew limits do not apply.

START/FINISH LINE:  Between orange flag on HYC dock and blue painted rock on opposite shore.

COURSE:  CCV Harbor Marks A(s), E(s), D(s), B(p), A(s).  (8.0 nautical miles)

Drop Mark “D” will be located at approx. 36°59.00’N, 76°22.65’W. Mark will be removed at 1600.

TIME LIMIT:  First boat must finish before 1630. Boats not finished by 1700 will be scored DNF.
