Alert for Three Bridge Fiasco Racers
If you’re one of the 686 sailors signed up to race in tomorrow’s SSS Three Bridge Fiasco and you didn’t make it to the skippers’ meeting on Wednesday, this alert is for you. The race is a pursuit, meaning that the slowest boats start first and the fastest start last. Whichever finishes first wins. Boats are assigned a start time based on their handicap rating. The start time sheet is posted on the race’s Jibeset page.
We downloaded the sheet on the left on Wednesday morning. But by Wednesday evening it had been replaced. The (highly theoretical) distance of the racecourse (21.67 miles) had been recalculated, changing the start times. Be sure you have the current start time sheet, and read the Notice of Race/Standing Sailing Instructions and the Sailing Instructions for the 2018 Three Bridge Fiasco. This race is unique, and the SIs include many, many changes to the RRS (Racing Rules of Sailing). Most importantly, have fun, sail clean, and we’ll see you out there!
