Entries open
We have added a open division to the small boat course, aimed at first timers or been there done that, extra allowed but only shortest course.
The committee has given it lots of names I can’t mention here, but it should appeal to quite a few I’m picking, Don’t enter your Fast 50 or the likes as you may be called out if you do.

Great idea to split the smallboat division!   :thumbup:

 

It used to be strictly 26 feet and under, but lately has included bigger and bigger boats making it pretty tough on the real smallboats, and a bit of a mismatch.

New sailing instructions: Looks like they now have the ability to move the start line, it is not fixed at Northern Leading.

 

8.6 iv) looks like a typo: "Emu Rock Iliomana Rock Beacon" - 2 marks merged, and one spelt incorrectly.

8.5 Lewmar Doyle Sails Short course "Haystack (Orapapa) Island," no rounding is given, presume it should be starboard.

That’s why they are drafts, keep up the good work thanks Elly
Used to be under 26ft or something like that from memory, the problem is there are some 30ftrs that fit and some 25ftrs that don’t so trying to work off a RaceTrack rating, and if a yacht is a real outlier we will try and encourage them into the div that’s the best fit

As for the start yes now moveable
However this is only likely to happen in extremes of weather like last year, so expect startline to be as per normal, however if there was a incident in the vicinity or conditions that made it unfair we now have the options stated in the SIs to be able to up and move.
Another change is we can now change a course up until the preparatory signal for a division
, ie if we found out that Shearer’s Rock buoy had sunk we can substitute it with say Tiri Navy Buoy, or drop it altogether if the conditions looked like boats weren’t likely to finish within the time limit without having to put the division onto the short course.
Effectively opening up some more options
