Fleet Race Rules
2017 Fleet Race Sailing Instructions-Revised 4/20/17
Race Committee Assignments
- Yes, you can sail a singlehanded H16 or one without a comptip. Justin and Greg Raybon can calculate ratings for these and many other special cases. Measurement and class rules issues are the responsibility of the measurement committee.
- Always remember, the Racing Rules are enforced by the competitors, not the race committees. As such, race committees do not have the ability to DSQ competitors. If you are on RC and a boat crosses the finish line, record a time. If you think the boat didn't sail the race properly, put an asterisk next to it and look for Justin or Greg on land to deal with it.
- We are going to use US Sailing appendix T protest arbitration procedures this year. This means there will be a less formal hearing prior to a protest hearing where the potential penalties are less than at a protest hearing.
The purpose is to encourage protests and make them less intimidating.
- Skippers' meetings are 1:30 prior to the first start this year in order to avoid postponements. This timeframe may be tweaked if needed.
- We are only using the 5 minute start this year. RC's are encouraged to sound a 10 minute warning horn on the first race of the day, but this is not required per the rules. RC's are also encouraged to sound 3 horns prior to the start of any start sequence
- The formatting of the Sailing Instructions has been modernized, however the meat of the content is the same except as noted above
- For 2017, we will be using a hybrid handicapping system that combines SCHRS and some of the benefits of Portsmouth. The base ratings will be from SCHRS, but we will use the Portsmouth crew weight adjustments.
To be eligible for the Skipper/Crew of the Year series all participants must RC one race. This requirement may be waived at the discretion of the Staff Commodore.
