SATURDAY BRICKS AND CRUISING COURSES:


COURSES:

The courses for all club races and cruises are set out below.  The RO will decide which course to use to suit the conditions of the day and will advise competitors by displaying a letter together with a number for each division on the committee boat. The letter will designate the relevant sailing division (A or B) and the number will designate the course number for that division to sail.  e.g. If A3 and B4 are displayed, Division A is to sail course 3 and Division B (cruising) is to sail course 4. If no letter is displayed, the race will be competed in one division only.


Note:  (p) means take the mark to port and (s) means take the mark to starboard.
