To embrace the enthusiasm of all our developing sailors, we will be running novice starts throughout the Autumn series. There will be a second start for novice racers 3 minutes after the main fleet start. We propose that the novice fleet follow the same course as the main fleet. This will avoid any "crossing paths" and make the OOD's task simpler.
Novice racers....Please remember to sign out on the sheet inside the clubhouse door, marking yourself as NOVICE FLEET. Please endeavour to keep clear of the main fleet start. If you are a long way behind the fleet, you will be given an estimated finishing place.
Main Fleet sailors....Give a safe, wide berth to these guys and be as encouraging as you can be!
OOD s....Please note finish times, simply subtracting 3 minutes to calculate results. If there are any "stragglers", give them a visual finish palce, and proceed with the next race. We are keen that the main racing is not delayed.
