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. Social distancing pre-cautions should be undertaken during the event including but not limited to masking as necessary and not congregating in groups.
DESCRIPTION This is the first of a four-day One Design Spring Series. As this is the first One Design, the Skippers' Meeting will involve additional discussion at the discretion of the Fleet Captains and PROs to get folks current and ready for the season. The series is intended for One Design racing generally short, 30 minute, windward/leeward races held in the Fishing Bay general vicinity. Practice starts may be held before starting any real races, and races may be shortened in either duration or number. Ability grouped fleets (A and B fleets) will be in effect during this race and series for classes that elect this option.
REGISTRATION Advance registration is encouraged at www.fbyc.net.
CLASSES Flying Scot, Front Runner and any class of any three like or unlike one-design boats is also invited to race. 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 their own separate class scoring.
