Each regatta will consist of a series of upwind and downwind loops. The boats will be drawn at random, by a representative from each team on the first day of each stage.
If the number of crews present for a stage exceeds 10, the teams will be split equally into two groups, one called the Alpha group and one called the Bravo group.
The regatta consists of a qualification timeframe, and a final series, in April.
After registration for the qualification series, the teams will be divided into two fleets, Alpha and Bravo, once more through a lottery draw.
According to the results of the qualification series, the fastest teams from each fleet (half of each fleet) will race in the final series under the titles “The Gold Fleet” and “The Silver Fleet”.
Updates about the distribution of yachts into these said groups will be posted in the “Sailing Instructions”.
Racing will be held on our J80 class yachts, with crews of 4-6 people.
