Race schedule for Blue and White Series Races Summer 2022

We have developed Sunday racing with the opportunity for two races for all. All races will be “lap” races with competitors finishing when they next cross the finish line after the lead boat has finished.

We will continue the race schedule trialled during March.  This will remain provisional during April 2022.

 

There will be a 45+ minute race each week which counts towards the Summer Series points and handicap trophies.  This will be called the White Race Series.

The Club will also run another series of shorter fleet races (30 mins lead boat) which will form a Blue Race Series.  There will be prizes for the Blue Race Series.

For the Summer Series, the combined results from the White and Blue Race Series will additionally count towards the award of a new set of trophies (one each for the Merlin Rocket, Laser and N18 fleets).

 

09:30 OOD and Team arrive to set up.
