The Format

The Start

  • All starts are reaching starts
  • Schedule a start every 5 minutes
  • Short postponements might be necessary depending on time required by riders to go upwind again to be in time for their next start.
  • Start on the outside with sufficient space to line up. Mark 1 ideally shall be set close to the beach to create picture opportunities and easy viewing for judges/umpires and spectators.
  • With onshore or offshore wind, preferably equal number of legs on each tack

The Start Line

  • Small RC boat on the windward side of line, displaying heat numbers and flags
  • Starting line is set parallel to wind. Depending on the line length, there should be up to 10° bias for the pin (referring to direct line to mark 1) – look for bunching on either end and adjust. The best place to start should be the middle of the line.
  • Line length: number of competitors x 10 meters
  • The angle to the first mark (i.e. 105°) shall be measured from the pin-end

  • Black flag rule on all starts.
  • Competitors must be informed on the finish line about BFD scores.Starting signals:

Rabbit Start

For full fleet races and depending on the number of riders, a rabbit start may be used.
