The Skippers meeting is on the Douglas Harbour wharf at noon (1200h) and the actual race event will start around 1300h. It’s a staggered/Bermuda style start, so everybody starts by themselves at a predetermined time – slower or higher handicapped boats go first.
- Generous handicaps applied to boats not normally racing (maximum golf).
- Generous handicap applied to boats racing with non-owner helmsman (maximum golf).
- Individual start times based on handicap so no congestion at the start line.
- Two or three short races depending on the wind.
Come out and give racing a try.
