CHASE RACE

Saturday September 24, 2022

SKIPPERS MEETING: 0930 hrs                          FIRST SIGNAL: 1035 hrs

 

GENERAL: The Chase Race is a 'Pursuit Race'. This race differs from others by having boats 'pay' their handicap before they start. In theory, if each boat sails to their handicap, all boats should finish at the same time. The crew that sails closest to their rating will win. The payment system is based on a 15.0 nautical mile race and the PHRF-LO 'time on distance' ratings.

START PROCESS: The sequence will follow RRS 26 with the following modification/s:

At or before the Preparatory signal, the time of the first start (e.g. 1040 for a 1035 preparatory signal) will be displayed from the RC vessel and remain on display for all starts. The first start will be signalled by the normal sequence. Each subsequent boat will start 15 seconds after the first start for each PHRF point in their rating less than 230. (e.g. a boat rating 170 will start 60 x 15 = 900 seconds after the first start. See the Start Times Spreadsheet for details.) No signals will be made for subsequent starts. Boats starting prematurely will be signalled in the normal fashion, and will have to return to the pre-start side of the line before starting.

COURSE: The START will be between the KYC Mark V and the flagpole on KYC’s outer breakwater.

Marks of the course are:

Mark No.
