Sailing Instructions for 2020 – change discussion

Suggested a new cruiser class – Restricted Sail (RS)

This class will start with CII and will not use spinnakers.

Mid- fleet prizes to be discontinued. This reflects that the fleets are small in number and mid fleet may be re-introduced if fleet numbers rise.

Racing prizes will mirror what is easily output by Hal sail software.

A cut-off time will be re-introduced to assist race officers by taking the decision off them  as to when classes should return to moorings or slipway. This is also to increase safety in the evenings.

September Wednesday races will start half an hour earlier.
