MRA Members:

If you missed it last week, don't let it happen again!  It's going to be a beautiful night to sail - wrap things up at the office and head to Marblehead for Friday Evening Racing!  Races start at 6pm; 3 boats required for a start.

Sailing Instruction Summary (unofficial!):

  • 3-minute dinghy starts
  • Class flag is end of start line and indicates who starts next
  • Courses are windward/leeward with offset and gate.  The gate will be to windward of start line
  • Course announced on VHF 72 by number - 3=3 legs (windward/leeward/windward); 4=4 legs 
  • If RC flies a green flag during your sequence, go to the green windward mark - otherwise, orange marks
  • Finish line is between RC boat and green tetrahedron

Official (almost too fancy for these races!) Sailing Instructions can be found here.  Be sure to follow SI 13.
