10th Annual SCSC Pursuit Races
Saturday, July 16th at 11:00 hrs
Notice of Race – Sailing Instructions
Competitors List – Start Times
The Pursuit Race is an exciting twist on our traditional races!
Boats will start based on handicaps – High-PHRF boats first, Lower-PHRF boats later. Each class of boat has their own start time. Hence, faster boats will PURSUE the slower ones. The idea is to have everyone finish at the same time (and scare the heck out of the Race Committee). The first boat across the finish line is the winner!
Start times are created for all boats registered with SCSC. These times will dictate when your boat starts after the conclusion of the initial start sequence. The final start times for registered boats will be posted on Friday evening.
Boats trailing behind may be “scored in place” to keep races rolling. The Race Committee will notify boats via VHF if they have been scored this way.
There is talk about turning this into one big, huge, long race in which boats will record their own finish times… Stay tuned for details if we go this route.
If you intend to race in a configuration not listed in the “Competitors List” document above (ie: spinnaker or non, different headsail size, etc) you must let the Race Committee know by NOON FRIDAY. You may also request optional configurations – ones you may or may not sail with. The R/C will add all requests to the Start Times form, and you may choose your configuration by announcing at your start.
Sign-up is not required unless you have a configuration change which affects your handicap.
The Pursuit Races are open to all members of the club, and all boats with an assigned handicap.
For questions or to submit handicap changes, use the following form by Friday at Noon:
