SAILING INSTRUCTIONS

Date & Start Times: Sunday‚ August 15‚ 2021• Registration Fee $20 per boat pre-race; $25 per boat race day
9:30 a.m. Skipper’s Meeting at MCSC Dockhouse
Starts will be signaled in the following sequence:


Starting Sequence:
Signal Flag and Sound Minutes before start
Warning Class Flag; 1 sound 5 minutes
Preparatory Preparatory Flag; 1 sound 4 minutes
One Minute Preparatory Flag removed; 1 long sound 1 minute
Starting Class Flag removed; 1 sound 0 minutes
Division 1‚ Start 1 = Ensigns
Division 2‚ Start 2 = PHRF yachts. Division 2 Warning signal is the Division 1 starting signal‚ unless otherwise indicated by Race Committee on the water.

Race Course: The Regatta will consist of 1 race. The course is diagrammed on page three of this SI‚ and will be sailed from a starting line inside the break wall‚ to a windward mark‚ through the north gap of the harbor‚ to the green can “bell buoy”‚ through the south gap‚ finishing through a finish line set inside the break wall near the north gap.

Eligibility: All MCSC skippers that are Medium or Heavy Air certified with a MCSC race skipper certification and any privately-owned yacht racers are eligible with proper entry fee paid.

Handicaps: Ratings will be based on PHRF ratings and One Design scoring. Boats (both centerboards and keelboats) not having a PHRF rating will be assigned a rating by the MCSC Race Committee and its decision is final. Rating must be submitted at time of registration.

Spinnaker Adjustment Factor (SAF): For purposes of clarification‚ MCSC uses’Spinnaker’ handicaps (HCP). Available databases do not provide sufficient informationto fairly handicap all yachts in our fleet with ’non-spinnaker’ handicaps. Boats may fly a spinnaker in this regatta. Boats choosing to fly a spinnaker will be penalized 13.848 sec. for each 10 minutes sailed. Boats must decide before the start sequence for their division and notify the Race Committee if they *WILL* use a spinnaker. The default assumption is that boats will not use a spinnaker. Spinnakers are not allowed at the start line.

Rules: The rules governing the regatta will be those of RRS except where modified by these instructions. Scoring will be the Low Point Scoring System - Appendix A of the racing rules (1st – 1 point; 2nd - 2 points; 3rd - 3 points etc.)
Trophies will be awarded based on turn out in each division.

Give way to all commercial vehicles (Lake Express uses the south gap).

The 720˚ Alternative Penalty Rule – 44.2 of the racing rules will apply.

If any part of a boat’s hull is on the course side of the starting line at her starting signal‚ she shall keep clear of other boats and sail across an extension(the start line extended beyond/outside the pin or Committee Boat) so that her hull is completely on the pre-start side before she starts (i.e. she must re-enter the starting area from outside of the pin or Committee Boat to in order to start).This modifies RRS rule 29.1.
Boats that are over-early at the start and do not (re)start will be scored OCS.

The "One Minute Rule" will be in effect. Any yacht crossing the start line one (1) minute before it’s’ start‚ shall re-round the start line around one of its ends.

Protests must be submitted orally to the RC as soon possible by the protesting yacht. The RC will hear protests in approximately the order of receipt after the last race has been completed.

REMEMBER‚ THIS IS A FUN RACE. ALL CAUTION AND CARE SHOULD BE TAKEN AT ALL TIMES; COLLISIONS ARE TO BE AVOIDED; SKIPPERS MAY BE HELD LIABLE FOR DAMAGE CAUSED BY THEIR BOAT. PLEASE COMPETE IN A SPORTSMANLIKE MANNER.

Time Limit: Time limit will be 3.5 hours for the race
