Ladies Helm 5th August 2018 Posted on 2nd August 2018 by Ray McGinty Ladies Helm 5th August 2018 – first boat start time 14.00hrs The plan of action so far, a brief summary: The start line will be two flags anchored in the bay near Meggies mark position. Synchronise your time pieces from the clock at the race board on the club ship. All boats will be given a starting time depending on your handicap at which point they will cross the gate/starting line laid in the bay. You will then sail at best possible speed a course to be announced on the day, 90 minutes for the slowest boat less for the quicker boats. After 90 minutes which should be 15.30 hrs the end of race will be announced via VHF. Take note of your position who is directly in front and who is directly behind. The best place to be near the end of the race is on the rhumb line to the start/finish line. Low tide is 16.09 hrs communicate with the Harbour Master on channel 12 on leaving and entering the river. Have engines running as you leave/ enter the river.
