The starting sequence for Main Points has changed for 2017.
The sequence will be as follows:
- Lasers & Juniors
- RS200s & Fireflys (Fireballs)
Russell is trying to decrease the numbers of starts to give more racing time.
There will be a manual calculation of handicap results between Juniors in Toppers and Juniors in Laser Radials while also allowing Juniors in Laser Radials to compete in the Laser fleet. Russell has promised that the situation will be monitored closely, and in the event of issues the start sequence can be altered in the RMS to accommodate alternative start sequences and amended through a change to the sailing instructions posted in the clubhouse.
