There are some changes in the way we score points This year

The points you score are the laps you do, i.e. the first in a race with 10 laps will score 10 points

Cutting corners or buoys mean a deduction of 1/4 lap for each infringement

It would be nice to see a few more members with club 500 boat's there are also a few spare boats, so if you want a go let us know.

Club racing rules

All Entries must be booked in to the Adjudicators 30 minutes before the First race.

First race starts at 10:30am

3 heats per meeting.

1 meeting per month.

Scoring as above.

Time between each heat 15 minutes Max after the recovery of any stranded boats and depending on the weather.

4 minutes per race.

If you miss a buoy 1/4 lap is deducted from total laps, DO NOT GO BACK.(keep going on The Same lap)

If the lake is not clear of non-runner boats and Ducks then the heat will be delayed until the lake is clear.

If you are not on the start line at beginning of a heat, you miss the Start altogether.

Graham Sleight and Michael Bondi are the appointed scrutineers for all boats at each meeting.

All boats must be as standard set up - no modifications are allowed and the boat Number MUST be on top of the cabin and readable from both Sides.
