NOTICE The event information below, used in conjunction with the General One Design Notice of Race, comprises the complete NOTICE OF RACE for the event.
DESCRIPTION This is a single day of racing. If we can't be in the Caribbean, we might as well be on the Chesapeake! Join us for a Caribbean-themed regatta. Ability grouped fleets (A and B fleets) will be in effect during this race for classes that elect this option prior to the start of the event.
REGISTRATION Advance registration is expected at www.fbyc.net.
CLASSES Flying Scot, as well as any One Design class of any three or more like or unlike boats. The Portsmouth Number (D-PN) handicapping system will be used to score classes of unlike boats. If there are fewer than three Portsmouth class boats they may participate in a parent class fleet (eg. Flying Scot) and race against them under the Portsmouth system. They will receive a Portsmouth score for this race day but will not be counted towards series scoring. The parent class will still maintain the own separate class scoring.
