THE OBJECTIVE:

The object of the race is to cover the maximum (PCF corrected) distance in the time allowed and the winner is the yacht that achieves this. Distances will be calculated from the Start by the shortest navigable distance to the GPS Turn Around positions and back.

NOTE:

Boats shall not cross or enter the main shipping channel.

TURN AROUND PROCEDURE:

All competitors will mark their turn around position with a GPS Mark.   This position will be relayed to the OOD by VHF Channel 72 within 2 minutes after turning around.
FINISH PROCEDURE:

Competitors will endeavour to finish exactly on the 1530 finish time.

Early finishers will have no penalty applied. They will have already been penalised by covering less than the maximum possible distance.

Competitors unable to finish by 1530 will mark their GPS position at exactly 1530 hrs and relay this to the OOD before 1535. The navigable distance to go to the finish will be calculated and this will be subtracted from the actual distance covered. The resultant distance will be corrected by the PCF for the final result!
