    There will be one start for this race with two one design classes, Martin 24 and J24. The Race Committee boats will be monitoring VHF channel 72 and make race announcements over that channel.

Boats that find themselves to windward and unable to cross behind the Rabbit as boats that did not start before the Rabbit tacks to starboard, will be considered OCS and must round the pin end of the starting line (keeping the mark to port) in order to counted as a starter. 5. Standard starting sequence sound signals will be used but NO signal flags will be displayed. Finishing: All boats are responsible for recording their finish time. Handouts may be distributed in the starting area prior to the start. ...
