Barnes Cup Pursuit Race - this Sunday 2nd July


Calling all racers! This is your final call for the pursuit race this Sunday. Your race team aims to put on a good course that is fair to all classes of dinghy and keelboats should they appear. For those that might be unfamiliar with this type of racing the very basics are that the slowest boat on the day begins first with a count down every minute thereafter to release boats onto the course in order of speed leading to the last boat entering the race being the fastest on handicap. All boats race for 100 minutes. Should all boats be sailed well to their handicap we should see a grandstand finish of the whole fleet arriving at the finish together.
This is a fun, easy to understand race format. If you are in an Optimist and don’t see anyone else for 100 minutes…and you sailed the right course then you are the winner!
See you at the club for the briefing at 10.00am. Food afterwards in the clubhouse.
