2. Non-spinnaker, single head sail.

Start: Each boat will start herself and record the time that the helm position is within 100 yards
due north of Piankatank G5 (FBYC C). You may start any time after 7:00am on Thursday,
August 22, 2024.
Finish: Each boat will record their finish time when the helm position is within 100 yards due
west of G “1CC” Fl G 2.5s (marking the entrance of the Cherrystone Inlet Channel and Cape
Charles Harbor).
Wolf Trap Light is not a mark of the course and may be left to either Port or Starboard.

The Social
Each boat is asked to bring an appetizer to share, and one “entry fee” noted above for the contest
within the contest. Also, if you can bring a table or a tent, that would be great.  The club will provide food to supplement the appetizer table, water bottles, tasting cups, voting cups, paper towels, and trash cans.

As votes for the most inspiring brown bagged scotch are being tallied, adjusted cruising elapsed
times will be determined, and the Wee Dram burgee awarded to the boat with the lowest adjusted time.  The winner of the scotch tasting will receive a prized whisky.  There is no obligation for the winner to host next year.
