The day before competition starts is normally a preparation day and to assist competitors, at this years VOLVO Cork Week the race committee are arranging a practice session for the various fleets. The format will be as follows:
- Your Race Officer will set a starting line in the area advised in the Volvo Cork Week 2014 Sailing Instructions. A standard 5-minute starting sequence will follow with all classes starting in the same sequence as published in the Sailing Instructions.
- A windward mark will be positioned approx 0.5nm upwind.
- A series of practice races – FG Race 1 at 14.00 hrs – will follow with the course being a short beat with a port rounding of the weather mark and a run back through the starting line to finish.
- The training session will continue for approx 90 minutes.
Your RO will communicate on the VHF Channel for your Fleet as follows:
Fleet A. 71
Fleet B. 69
Fleet C. 72
Wishing everyone a successful regatta
