OCC Start at 11am.
The OCC Outer Distance Mark is currently missing, so the transit will be the start and finish line for this race. If by some chance the ODM reappears, ignore it for this race.
Please note in the event the course goes up the Waikare, the F&P rules apply re. keeping clear of the eastern moorings, not the current OCC rules. OCC boats please note the change!
The course number will be on the OCC clubhouse wall on the day. If you haven’t raced at OCC recently – some mark names have changed! You will need the new course sheet and course map.
