Race Information

The warning signal for the start of this race will be made at 1200 There will be only one start for all boats.
Signals will be made from the Floating Dock or the pier. Race shall be started as follows:
-5 minutes Raise X Class Flag (plus one sound signal) -4 minutes Raise “P” Flag (plus one sound signal)
-1 minute Lower “P” Flag (plus one sound signal) -Start = Lower X Class Flag (plus one sound signal)


The Start/Finish line is between a red start pin and a flag on the Club’s floating dock in a line parallel to the pier. (The orange buoys marking underwater hazards to the north west of the float are not marks of the course – please use caution around them). The only other mark of the course is the large red point grey bell buoy, which may be rounded to either Port or Starboard. The final leg of the course is directly to the finish line at KYC. The finish line is between the floating mark and the North East corner of the Club’s floating dock in a line parallel to the pier (same as the start line).


The Race Committee or race official or support boat has the authority to postpone, change course or abandon the race at any time. Vessels are encouraged to monitor channel 73

Race Support Boat

KYC may decide to run a race support boat for this event, however, skippers should use their own discretion when it comes to the safety of this event. The KYC support boat is there to monitor the progression of the race and should not be depended on for towing or other safety measures.
Looking forward to seeing you on the water!
