Race Management
Under normal circumstances, and as a general rule, each Race Committee should make their very best effort to be on the course and prepared to start races on time. There are a couple of exceptions: clear and present/impending danger (e.g. lightning, extreme wind/squalls) or no prospect of sufficient wind to start a race. In the case of the former, safety for the racers is the overriding consideration. In the case of the latter, it's a practical consideration for racers (i.e. not having to rig their boats, go out to the course, return the the club, un-rig, etc, unnecessarily). An on shore abandonment recently occurred for safety reasons. The majority of racers thought the overall process (on shore consultation by the RC with a large number of skippers from each fleet) worked well and the decision to abandon correct.

1 D Sailing Cup
KYC is building a team to race in 1 D Sailing Cup in late September in Bronte Harbour. There's $1,000 in prize money. For more details, check out you are interested in participating please contact John Curtis at
