Mobile App for Hearing Requests, Scoring Enquiries and much more
After its successful introduction in 2021, we will again be using the RacingRulesofSailing.org App. This mobile App allows you to submit a Hearing Request (Protest) and other enquiries to the OA without the need to go to the Race Office or Reception. Paper forms will still be available for those who prefer the traditional system.The App also allows you direct access to the Official Noticeboard, time limits, jury decisions and notifications.
The Official Noticeboard will go live on the 15th August, and competitor information will be uploaded a few days before the start of racing. But we suggest you download the App ahead of time, and take a look at some other on-going regattas to familiarise yourself with its layout.
Classes and Ratings
Please be aware a wave monitoring buoy is positioned in Start Bay at: 50° 17.53’N 003° 36.99’W. The picture shows the buoy which can be hard to spot in some conditions. Below the water it is surrounded by a 1 metre defensive frame. Boats should keep well clear of it, both while proceeding to their starting area and while racing.
RDYC’s guide to “Avoiding Rocks” is also well worth a read.
