Pursuit Race II 25 July 4:00 pm - Start Times Below

The forecast still looks good, so we are a GO for tomorrow. 

The RC enjoys these races the most and only partly because we’re drinking beer and champagne while you’re all sailing.

Predict Wind is saying a quiet morning (3 to 5 knots out of the north, more-or-less) will miraculously give way - - between 2pm and 4pm - - to a 10 to 13 knot wind that will be out of the South South West to South West.  Wonderful.

We’re going to use course F1 as we did for the first Jackrabbit race.  Reminder: Start - C1(S) - R22(S) - R24(P) - R22(P) - C1(P) – Finish.  It’s 8.28 NM.

The race will start on the tail of the flood; and then the ebb is forecast to start in the South Race at 4.56pm.  So current really shouldn’t be too much of a factor.

The start times are below.  If your boat isn’t listed, let me know (but if there’s a boat of the same type and rating, just start with them); if there’s an error, let me know.

In the HDCP APPLIED column you will see the boats that are carrying a handicap from their recent successes in the Legends Cup.  The start times already reflect those handicaps.  That’s why, for example, Hocus Pocus has a slightly later start time in the Cruising Division than the other J80s.  And, in the Spinnaker Division, why all 3 J80s have very slightly different start times (2 are carrying handicaps - - different handicaps).

First away will be Simpatico at 4.05pm (unless Willie shows up on Shadow, in which case he will be first out of the gate at 4:04:26).

The biggest individual start will be the 4 Alerions, so we will still set a pretty short line, but keep it just long enough for 4 28-footers to duke it out at their start.  Maybe 50-60 yards.

Last away will be that beautiful J100, Gracious, at 4:31:29.   Everybody should be back by around 6pm.

See you out there.

Please don’t try to check in until the RC has announced that we are “on station”.  It’s surprisingly easy to make a mistake with check-ins for the Jackrabbit - - we have to check everyone in, make sure we are clear whether boats are Cruising or Spinnaker, select the correct start times, and then rewrite the fleet in the proper start order. And still start on time.

One last thing: when you check in, please declare your start time.  It’s one way we can check that everybody knows what’s what.

See you tomorrow,

Peter
