Explanation of Races

Short Course Time Trials –

Would consist of a 1km course, boats take a flying start and complete one lap of the course up to ten times with fastest time and average speed over the course to be calculated. Course to be set to suit both spinnaker and non spinnaker boats

Handicap Race Series

Would Consist of 2 races to be counted as one race, First race is a beach start and beach finish. Boats return to shore then start in reverse order of finishing times from the first race. Finishing places in the second race are the final results. Doing it this way does away with the hard to calculations of doing a handicap series. Penalties apply for capsizes and foxing or deliberately going slow in the first race.

Teams Racing Relay Race –

Teams are formed depending numbers on the day for example 2 cats and 2 lasers on each team with 4 teams. One boat from each team starts on the beach and completes one lap of the course then returns to beach and tags the next team member as so on.
