Official Notice #2

Deletion of SI 9.3 - Starting Penalties under RRS 30.1


The Menai Strait Regattas have traditionally allowed boats that are over the line at the start (OCS) to "dip" back over the line. This is covered by RRS 29.1 Individual Recall.

SI 9.3 which would require OCS boats to sail round the end of the line before starting (RRS 30.1) is deleted (to be reflected in the next issue).

RRS 30 still applies so in the event that the Race Officer chooses to fly one of the I, Z, U or Black flags it means that the associated starting penalty in RRS 30.1, 30.2, 30,3 and 30.4 applies, otherwise they do not.
