Sunday Afternoon Pursuit Racing (2018)
We are trying out a pursuit format for afternoon racing over the
three summer series; Spring, Whit and Summer; for 2018.
For the Spring series the pursuit will be purely based on boat class start times to give everyone a chance to get use to these races. Class Start times are displayed on the notice board directly above the sign on sheet for Sunday Race 3!
We expect that races will generally be based on lasting 50 minutes (Standard version) for a British Moth. However there is an option for the race officer to increase the race to 60 minutes for a Mirror (Long version) if there are any slower boats entering. The race officer will display an S or an L in the lap slot on the course board (they will probably announce it for the first few weeks as well.
The intention is to introduce Personal Start Times (in a similar but slightly simpler format than Wednesdays) for the Whit series. Those who have sailed on Wednesday Evenings please be ready to answer questions from anyone else when this happens.
