The race will start at 1100 in Shipyard Cove.
The starting line is between the day marker off Brown Island and the mooring buoy that is approximately 200 yards to the south of the marker.
Skippers who are over the line early should re-round the buoy and start again.
 
“Talpa” is the Race Committee boat.
 
Racers are asked to listen and communicate on VHF Channel 72 before the start and during the race.
The course will be announced 15 minutes before the start.  Because of the nature of the race, precise timing horn blasts are not guaranteed.
