Pursuit Regatta : Outrigger Yacht Club

About Event

The pursuit regatta provides a fun way for those new to sailboat racing to get started. The key difference with a Pursuit Style format is that the boat with the highest PHRF rating (theoretically slowest) starts first, and the boat with the lowest PHRF (theoretically fastest) starts last. The intention is to overtake the boats in front of you to cross the finish before them. Scoring is based by order of boats crossing the finish line. The staggered start eliminates the normal stress of a group start across the line, and makes the chase fun.

    All - Looks like a GREAT day for racing on Lake Norman tomorrow! I look forward to seeing everyone out there on the water. Attached is a table with the potential courses and starting times. Any questions please don't hesitate to call me at 828-446-5831. We cannot predict the wind so I have set up multiple potential courses in the document listed as Sailing Instructions under Race Documents. Per the NOR section 9.3 there will be one starting sequence for all fleets. The Class Flag will be the Numeral Flag 1. We will fly the course letter (A, B, C, etc. ) below the Class flag to indicate course. Your individual starting time after the starting horn can be found by looking at the intersection of the column under the course, and the row with your boat. Be sure to bring the attached table with you so you know your starting times based on the course we set! And we may changes courses between race 1 and 2, so don't let it blow overboard! Example: Course flags flow show the #1 Flag with the C flag under it. That means we will sail course C, and if you are 'Impunity', you will start 49 seconds after the starting horn. See you tomorrow!
