Instructions are here!

Yeah! Now we're rolling!

You can get your own copy of the sailing instructions >here<

What's new? Not too much of a change from last year. We did change the scoring penalty so that you can take 30% (instead of 40%) You will see that in Section 12. Still better to do your turns on the course.

We'll probably have a few new things this year, but those things are probably too small for the SI. Like maybe more parties! We'll send you emails about that when we get closer.

Two weeks to go and we're sailing!

Still need to register?
