of the four clubs are organising and hosting one of four
races to be held this season, starting and finishing in
the River Orwell. Entries are restricted to members of
the Organising Clubs. As in previous years, these are
fun races to attract new and past participants. We continue
to have the support of the “Evening Star” newspaper,
which is awarding a special trophy to the winning club.
Awards may also be made at the discretion of the Race
Committee for individual achievement.
The first three boats from each Club to complete
each race in the series will attract points according to their
overall position on handicap. Points will be awarded as follows:
1st – 1 point; 2nd – 2 points; 3rd – 3 points,
and so on. All races count, this changes RRS A4.
The Club with the smallest total number of
points will win each race. The Club with the smallest total
cumulative number of points over the series will be the overall
winner. Ties in scoring will be resolved as per RRS A8.
Where fewer than three yachts enter from any one Club in any
race, the absent yachts will be scored as, the number of entries
on the day plus 1. The same applies for a yacht that does
only one vessel enters any race, the race will be void.
Races will be sailed under the “Racing
Rules of Sailing 2005- 2008” as amended by the Three
Clubs' River Series Sailing Instructions.
Races are open to all mono-hull cruising
yachts of 17 feet waterline length and over, owned and helmed
by members of any of the 3 Organising Clubs.
The organisers anticipate all competitors
will attend the Host Club after racing for Afternoon Tea.
Bar facilities will also be available.
Prizegiving for individual races and for
the overall series will be presented at Pin Mill
SailingClub on Saturday 20th September 2008
at 20:00 hrs.
All Races will start
in Buttermans Bay, on the River Orwell and will finish on the
finish line of each respective Club, on the day of their hosting
the event. Details on the Course
