Sailing Instruction 13 is amended to read as follows:
13. LATE STARTS
Five minutes after the last group has started, the starting pin will be removed. Any boat that has not yet checked in and started may start after the starting mark is removed, so long as the boat was entirely on the pre-start side of the starting line at or after her starting signal. She shall notify the Race Committee of her late start via VHF Channel 72. In the event the Race Committee does not respond, she shall contact the Principal Race Officer via telephone at 832-457-5154.
