------------------------------

The Club runs three series throughout the season using various courses (see below):

Common Courses - Olympic Triangle with Port Roundings (Red Flag) (as shown in diagram); Starboard roundings can be used (Green Flag)


The courses for the three events run by the club are:

Championship (scratch start)
=> Start-Triangle-Sausage-Triangle-Finish

Sprint (scratch start, several races each day after Championship)
=> Start-Triangle-Sausage-Finish

Pointscore (handicap start - minutes advantage)
=> Start-Triangle-Sausage-Triangle-Sausage-Finish
----------------------------------------------------

Amendments to the Pointscore Handicap Systems

Note: For the Pointscore the slower yachts are given several minutes start ahead of the faster yachts ('Catch me if you can'). Ideally all yachts should finish very close together.

The handicaps are adjusted after each race according to the following scheme:
1st place => loss of 2 minutes
2nd place => loss of 1 minute
3rd place => no change - stay as you are
4th place and all other starters (including DNF) => plus 1 minute
All non-starters have no change to their handicaps, except when all the scores need to be adjusted to avoid negatives. For example, when the winner has a Minutes Advantage Handicap of 1 minute and would lose 2 minutes, to a -1 minute handicap for the first place, ALL handicaps are increased by 1 minute so that the winner's new handicap is 0 (zero).
Note: The committee and handicapper will make periodic adjustments to the system to keep it as fair and functional as possible, and to assign handicaps to new members and visitors.
