Bank Holiday Experiment

We are intending on running a windward leeward experiment for the Wythop 5 race series held on the 26th and 27th of May. The handicap fleet will start as normal but a specific course will be added for boats within this class with an asymmetric spinnaker. This course will be a windward leeward and use the 1st mark of the course as the windward mark and then the leeward mark would be the penultimate mark prior to Y/Z with the requirement to pass through Y/Z each lap. These boats if individually shortened would be under specific class flag ‘numeral 9’. Y/Z has not been mandated for this windward leeward course as we are not sure a third Y/Z plate is available on the committee boat. 

Results for handicap will be calculated as two separate fleets and results used for club championship. This is a single weekend experiment which will be followed up by a general members survey for consideration over the winter. The above wording is an addition to section 5, courses of the sailing instructions. 

Any questions feel free to catch me at the weekend.
