Event Start Times Unless stated otherwise in the NOR or posted on the notice board, for regular series events the scheduled time for the skippers meeting shall be 1200 and the first signal shall be 1300. For two-day regattas, on Saturday the skippers meeting shall be at 1200 and the first signal shall be at 1300 and on Sunday there shall be no skippers meeting and the first signal shall be at 1100. Four (4) short blasts will be given not less than one minute before the first signal of the start sequence.
Penalties and Protests RRS Rule 44.1 and 44.2 shall apply, except 44.2 is modified to require only a 360* turn. RRS Rule 61.1a is modified to remove the requirement to fly a red protest flag. Scoring penalties will not be used. It is important to note that anyone who breaks a rule, even if by accident and even if the other boat does not protest, is expected (and required by the rules) to voluntarily take a penalty in the spirit of fair play.
