Posted On: August 4, 2010

Dear MRA members,

IODs will also race on the combined Tinker's line this Saturday, Aug 7th. As a result, we have made changes and additions to our original 8/3 e-mail communication.  These changes and additions are underlined below.


This coming Saturday, August 7th will be a very busy day for racing in the Marblehead waters. Please be aware of the following changes to the regular MRA SI's:

• The Midway and Tinkers Lines will be combined for this Saturday only. Etchells, IODS, Vipers, Sonars, J-24's and Rhodes 19s will be combined on the Tinker's Line area. First gun (for Etchells) will be at 12:00, followed by IODS, Vipers, Sonars. J-24s and Rhodes 19's. All public communication will be on VHF Channel 71 for this line.

Etchells and IODs will be sailing a long course to green marks; other fleets will be sailing a short course to red marks.

The leeward mark (or gate) for all fleets will be red marks.

Start and finish marks will be green.

IOD scores and times will be sent to the Classic Boat Regatta Race Committee at the conclusion of racing.

• The Town Class National Championship will be organized in the Brimbles Line area, using VHF Channel 72 for communication.

• The J30 National Championship will race in the Midway Line area, using VHF channel 78 for communication.

• The Bowditch Race, a PHRF event, will organize outside of the Tinkers Line, using VHF 69 for communication.

We look forward to seeing you on the water,
