Additionally, could Split Start sailors please note that all split starts will be published with sail numbers written on whiteboards on both the NPC Pontoons and the Starting Raft (when being used). These will be published an hour before the first race in the series, and will not change after this point (any additional entries will be added where applicable). If you are unsure as to which start you will be in, please come to the pontoon and look/ask. Starting before your published start time will lead to immediate disqualification from your race.
Areas marked in Red are especially important as they are changes to previous years, or clarifications on previously questioned points.
