Wet & Forget Race 5 and Series Table to Date
A great turn out for race 5, after the weather kept some of our regulars indoors last time round. Excellent result and prizes from Wet and Forget for Titan 1st with Cut Lunch 2nd and Overdraft 3rd. For the results click here. Thanks to the good turnout from our RBC representatives yet again. The light conditions made the race a bit of a lottery for most of the trailing fleet.
OCC Sailing Instructions and Your Rights
OCC Sailing Instructions are available on the website or from the Race Office. Please read them, and refer to the YNZ Racing Rules of Sailing 2009-2012, as they clearly state your rights as a contestant entered in an OCC Race or Series. Should a yacht feel their result or points have been made significantly worse by the actions of another competitor, or by the actions of the Race Committee, please pay special attention as to how to protest or ask for redress. Please also note that any request should be justified by a rule. A plea from the Race Committee – please note the time limit for any protests and requests for redress, as it is there for a reason.
We have found that it is difficult to find starters for weekends, as many of us have lots of things on. We have great support from those who are doing this job for us, and we continue to be extremely grateful for your efforts. Unfortunately, our regular starters are not always available on weekends and the Race Committee is seriously considering a roster system for OCC weekend entries. This is likely to require each regular yacht racing weekends to make available a starter for a roster. This will take effect for the summer season onwards.
