Organizing Authority: This regatta is organized under the authority of the Birmingham Sailing Club and will be sailed under the management of its race committee.

 

Rules: This regatta will be governed by the rules as defined by the current edition of the Racing Rules of Sailing (RRS) except as these may be modified by this Notice of Race, the Flying Scot Class Rules, the Sailing Instructions, and any amendments thereto.  The Low-Point Scoring System will be used to score the regatta, except that there will be no throw-outs. See Sailing Instructions for more detail. Sailing instructions will be provided at registration.

 

Eligibility:  This regatta is open to all Flying Scot sailboats.  Championship and Challenger Fleets will be scored, all sailing on the same Start. Awards will be presented to the top FIVE finishers in both fleets.

 

Races:  Five races are planned – with three on Saturday and two on Sunday.  If time, wind, and racing conditions permit, more races may be run on either day, and thus more than five races may be held. One race constitutes a regatta. Courses to be sailed will be described in the Sailing Instructions.
