Fast Cruise Courses 31 January 2015
Here are the courses for this Saturday's fast cruise - one race only. Cick the link below to download the pdf with full details.
Yachts with an LSC handicap of 1.100 and lower shall sail the short course. Those with an LSC handicap of 1.101 and greater shall sail the long course. Please note that if you retire you are asked to send an SMS to race control, not use VHF - full details are in the course document.
Skippers/navigators especially PLEASE NOTE:
1 - The first mark of each course is the same, however the START marks for the two fleets are different. Make sure you start in the correct place!
2 - The rhumb line of both courses passes over an area of relatively shallow water. Skippers must ensure for themselves at all times that the route they take from one mark to the next is appropriate for their boat. The only requirements of the course are that marks are passed in the correct order and on the specified side.
3 - To avoid what would likely have been a long and tedious beat up Southampton Water dominating the courses, both fleets will finish at Reach SHM. Boats should then make their way by whatever means they prefer to Southampton Town Quay.
Finally, please call "Town Quay marina" on VHF80 on your final approach to be allocated a berth, advising that you are part of the LSC group. Berthing fees are for your own account.
