    West Country Boat Repairs Millennium Series 3: Keyhaven YC

    Sailing in the Solent directly opposite the Needles, but located on the mainland. Keen home fleet, so a warm welcome assured. Fantastic event in 2020, so don’t miss this one in 2021, where the club is ideally located for summer sea breezes.

    10th May 2021 Update from 2000 Fleet Captain Matt Wright::

    11 entries so far. Myself and Cy are the best contacts, we are jointly organising our end. Cy is down as the club contact for specific queries from visitors or those that might want to try and park up at the boatyard etc.

    The club will be following the covid rules and RYA guidance at the time, so we will be able to seat people inside and out in groups of up to six or two households of any size. Face masks have to be worn inside when not seated. Changing rooms should be open to use. Domestic overnight stays should also be open, so generally looking good.

    Snettisham Beach SC Norfolk: Coached Open Weekend

    Please come along to our coached Open meeting at SBSC 19 – 20 June 2021. An open meeting where you can learn. Coaches will be on hand to give advice during racing.

    Here below are some Welcome Notes, Notice of Race, and Sailing Instructions.

    Welcome Notes.

    Sailing

    This is not an event that counts for the 2000 Class 2021 Millennium Series. Its the mid – summer weekend so there will be lots of daylight for travel to Norfolk, some Saturday night socialising, and travel home on Sunday. The club faces west across the Wash so when the sun shines, the sunsets are exceptional!

    There should will be some high quality racing – its 2019 National Champions Jasper and Laura Barnham’s home club.

    There will be coaches in ribs on the water calling out advice and encouragement, and as usual the boat park will be the fount of all wisdom for set up, tuning, tactics, boat handling etc. etc.; just ask your 2000 Friends. In the evening we’ll be de-briefing using video.

    Sailing at Snettisham Beach revolves around the tide times. High water times are:

    13.40 Saturday

    14.40 Sunday

    6 races planned, 3 each day.

    First race start on Saturday not before 12.00

    Last race start on Sunday no later than 14.20

    Entry and payment

    Entry fee is £35.00 . Reduced fees for students. Please enter and pay online at

    https://www.snetbeach.co.uk/open-meetings/2021-coached-open-meeting-at-sbsc-19-20-june

    and note the Notice of Race and Sailing Instructions.

    Hospitality

    The bar will be open at the club. We aim to have food available on Friday and Saturday evenings but at the moment we are unable to confirm it at the moment. Food will also will be available locally. We will be preferring card payments on the day for food and drink.

    The club has a large car park, boat park and beach frontage which should enable competitors and spectators to avoid close contact. Please park where indicated on arrival to maximize the use of the space.

    Accommodation

    Please contact the club for information on camping at the club. There is enough room for both tents and camper vans. Being mid-summer, it will get light at 4.00 am and dark at 11.00 pm so to ensure a good sleep its wise to have very good curtains or a sleeping eye mask. There is a lot of bird life and it can seem very noisy at 5.00 am so ear plugs can be useful too.

    Subject to covid guidelines members are usually willing to accommodate visitors. Feel free to ask! Otherwise this is a good place to look www.visitwestnorfolk.com/where-to-stay

    Covid 19

    The organisers draw competitor’s attention to their inability to socially distance in a two man sailing dinghy. As a result competitors should endeavour to ensure that each boat is sailed by competitors within a household, group or social bubble as defined by the government guidance at the time of the event. At the time of writing the COVID lockdown relaxation stage is anticipated to be stage 3, applying from 17th May to 21st June. For details of those rules see https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/explainers-52530518

    Competitors are expected to adhere to any then current government guidance.

    Changing rooms and showers will be open during the event. PLEASE NOTE these are areas of increased risk, and we would encourage participants to avoid or minimise use where possible (for example, by arriving in kit and showering at home) and to minimise the time they spend in the changing area. Participants should social distance whilst in changing rooms. More than one household can use changing facilities at one time but they must not mix and must adhere to capacity limits.

    Sailing Instructions

    1. RULES

    The regatta will be governed by

    Competitors shall wear personal flotation devices at all times when afloat, except briefly while changing or adjusting clothing or personal equipment. Wet suits and dry suits are not personal flotation devices. This changes the rule in that the rule is always in force during racing and code flag Y need not be displayed to indicate this.

    2. NOTICES TO COMPETITORS

    2.1 Notices to competitors will be posted on the official notice board, located outside the bar.

    3. CHANGES TO SAILING INSTRUCTIONS

    3.1 Any change to the sailing instructions will be posted not less than 60 minutes before the advertised start of any race or races concerned, except that any change in the schedule of races for Sunday will be posted by 7pm on Saturday.

    4. SIGNALS MADE ASHORE

    4.1 Signals made ashore will be displayed on the flagstaff outside the front of the clubhouse.

    4.2 Flag L with a sound signal means: ‘A notice to competitors has been posted’.

    4.3 When Flag AP is flown ashore, race signal AP is changed in that ‘1 minute’ is replaced by ‘not less than 30 minutes’.

    5. SCHEDULE OF RACES

    5.1 It is intended that there will be three back-to-back races on Saturday 19th June with the warning signal for the first start of the first race of the day at 11.55 hrs. Three back-to-back races are scheduled for Sunday 20th June with the warning signal for the first start of the first race of the day to be advised, but likely to be 12.55.

    5.2 Six races are scheduled.

    5.3 For the purposes of Rule 30.4, a race that cannot be completed on Saturday will be deemed to be restarted or resailed as the first race on Sunday.

    5.4 For back to back races, flag AP will be displayed before the end of the previous race and lowered with one sound, one minute before the Warning signal. The timing of raising flag P will not provide grounds for a competitor to seek redress

    5.5 The race officer may indicate that the next race sequence is about to start by repeated short sound signals.

    5.6 At the discretion of the Class Representative and the Official Race Officer Race 4 may be brought forward to allow for any inclement weather forecasts. This decision will be announced at the briefing.

    5.7 No warning signal will be made after 14.20hrs on Sunday.

    6 THE START

    6.1 Races will be started in accordance with rule 26.

    6.2 The starting line will be between the staff on the Committee Boat and an outer distance mark or boat, each displaying an orange flag.

    6.3 An inner distance mark between the committee boat and the outer distance mark may be used. No boat shall pass between this mark and any part of the vessel it guards after the preparatory signal.

    6.4 A boat starting later than 5 minutes after her starting signal will be scored Did Not Start.

    6.5 In the event of an individual recall, flag ‘X’ will be lowered no later than two minutes after the starting signal. This changes RRS 29.1.

    6.6 Rules that may be applied at the start when the appropriate flag is displayed. Rules applying will be announced at the briefing:

    I Flag Rule - RRS 30.1

    Flag I may or may not be displayed.. Unless the black flag rule described in 7 is introduced, the following rule will apply to all starts:

    Except where there are no navigable extensions at either end of the starting line, no yacht shall race within the triangle formed by the starting line outer limits and the first mark during the last minute before her starting signal unless she subsequently passes outside, round to leeward, of one of the marks or the committee boat at the end of the start line where these marks are surrounded by navigable water.

    U Flag Rule – RRS 30.3

    The provisions of this rule will apply to all races, Flag U may or may not be displayed. ‘No part of a boat’s hull shall be in the triangle formed by the ends of the starting line and the first mark during the last minute before her starting signal. If a boat breaks this rule and is identified, she shall be disqualified without a hearing, but not if the race is restarted or resailed.’

    Black Flag Rule – RRS 30.4.

    If a black flag has been displayed before the class warning signal no part of a boat’s hull shall be in the triangle formed by the ends of the starting line and the first mark during the last minute before her starting signal. If a boat breaks this rule and is identified, she shall be disqualified without a hearing, even if the race is restarted, or resailed or rescheduled, but not if it is postponed or abandoned before the starting signal. If a general recall is signaled or the race is abandoned after the starting signal, the race committee shall display her sail number before the next warning signal for that race, and if the race is restarted or resailed she shall not sail in it. If she does so, her disqualification shall not be excluded in calculating her series score.

    7. COURSE

    7.1 The diagram below shows the course, including the course letters, the order and side in which marks are to be passed.

    7.2 The Race Committee boat will display the number of laps to be sailed on a board on the committee boat.

    8. MARKS

    8.1 The marks to be used will be announced at the briefing.

    9. THE FINISH

    9.1 The finishing line will be between the staff on the committee boat and a dan buoy displaying a blue flag.

    9.2 On any lap, the course may be shortened if the leading boat in the class has rounded its windward mark. Flag ‘S’ will be displayed on the committee boat (and may be repeated by mark boats on the course area) with two sound signals. Boats shall then sail through their leeward gate, round mark 2a to port, then sail through the finish line.

    Failure to repeat the flag from mark boats will not be grounds for redress. This replaces RRS 32.2 and changes rule 62.

    9.3 In order to reduce delay between races, the Race Officer may finish boats at the back of the fleet by recording their positions from a RIB, which will motor down the course. The decision of the Race Officer is final and will not be grounds for a competitor to seek redress.

    10 PENALTY SYSTEM AND TIME LIMITS

    10.1 If no boat has reached the first mark within 20 minutes, that race will be abandoned, although it may be restarted.

    10.2 Rules 44.1 and 44.2 are changed FOR ALL COMPETITORS so that only one turn, including one tack and one gybe, is required for an infringement.

    10.3 A boat that Did Not Start, Finish or Retired After Finishing shall complete an acknowledgment form at the race office within the protest time limit.

    11. PROTESTS AND REQUESTS FOR REDRESS

    11.1 Protest forms are available at the race office. Protest forms shall be returned there within the protest time limit.

    11.2 The protest time limit is 60 minutes after the last boat has finished the last race of the day and returned to shore. This time limit will be extended by 30 minutes for all protests by the Race Committee relating to incidents observed in the racing area.

    11.3 Notices will be posted within 20 minutes of the end of the protest time limit to inform competitors of hearings in which they are parties or named as witnesses.

    11.4 Breaches of instructions 1.6 and 13.1, will not be grounds for a protest by a boat.

    This changes rule 60.1(a). Penalties for these breaches may be less than disqualification if the protest committee so decides.

    11.5 Designated Coaches for the event will not be available as witnesses for any protests

    12 ADVISORY AND ARBITRATION HEARINGS; EXONERATION PENALTY

    The Advisory Hearing and RYA Arbitration procedures of the RYA Rules Disputes Procedures will be available. For these purposes an Exoneration Penalty of 40% shall apply, although the final position of a penalised boat shall be no worse than if she had retired.

    13. SAFETY REGULATIONS AND LOCAL ISSUES

    13.1 Tally System / Signing-on. For the Safety of all taking part, a Tally system or Signing-on procedure may be in place.

    This will be confirmed at the competitors briefing.

    13.3 a) It is a condition of entry that a Competitor shall comply with the instructions of Safety Boat crews, whose priority is to help competitors in distress or danger before retrieving boats.

    b) Any action by these crews solely intended to ensure the safety of a competitor, such as recovering crew or separated components of the boat, provided this does not materially advantage the boat concerned, is not “outside help” as defined in RRS 41 and is not subject to protest from another competitor. The competitor may continue to race. This amends RRS 41.

    13.4 A boat that retires from a race shall notify the race committee as soon as possible. This is to be confirmed by completing a declaration on coming ashore.

    14. SCORING

    14.1 One race is required to be completed to constitute a series.

    14.2 When four or more races have been completed, a boat’s series score will be the total of her race scores excluding her worst score.

    14.3 If a different Helm completes a race in the same boat then they shall be considered a separate entry and their results cannot be combined with the results achieved by another Helm.

    15 MEASUREMENT

    15.1 Competitors are required to allow the race committee, the class committee or a duly authorised representative of either body to measure or inspect a boat at any time when she is not racing.

    16 DISCLAIMER OF LIABILITY

    16.1 Competitors participate in the regatta entirely at their own risk. See Rule 4 Decision to Race. Competitors are entirely responsible for their own safety, whether afloat or ashore, and nothing reduces this responsibility. It is for competitors to decide whether their boat and its helm and crew are fit to sail in the conditions that they might find. By launching or going afloat competitors confirm their boat is fit for those conditions and that they are competent to sail and compete in them. Nothing done by the organisers can reduce the responsibility of the owners and/or competitors, nor will it make the organisers responsible for any loss, damage, death or personal injury, however it may have occurred, as a result of the boat taking part in the racing. The organisers encompass everyone helping to run the event and include the organizing authority, race committee, race officer, safety officer, patrol boat personnel and beach masters. The provision of patrol boats does not relieve owners and competitors of their responsibilities.

    17. INSURANCE

    17.1 Each participating boat shall be insured with valid third-party liability insurance with a minimum cover of £3 million.

    17.0 RISK STATEMENT

    Rule 4 of the Racing Rules of Sailing states: ‘The responsibility for a boat’s decision to participate in a race or to continue racing is hers alone.’

    Sailing is by its nature an unpredictable sport and therefore inherently involves an element of risk. By taking part in the event, each competitor agrees and acknowledges that:

    1. They are aware of the inherent element of risk involved in the sport and accept responsibility for the exposure of themselves, their crew and their boat to such inherent risk whilst taking part in the event;
    2. They are responsible for the safety of themselves, their crew, their boat, and their other property whether afloat or ashore;
    3. Their boat is in good order, equipped to sail in the event and they are fit to participate;
    4. The provision of a race management team, patrol boats, umpires and other officials and volunteers by the event organiser does not relieve them of their own responsibilities;
    5. The provision of patrol boat cover is limited to such assistance, particularly in extreme weather conditions, as can be practically provided in the circumstances.
    6. It is their responsibility to familiarise themselves with any specific risks to this venue or this event drawn to their attention in any rules and information produced for the event and to attend any safety briefing at the venue.
    7. INSPECTIONS: The fact that race officials may conduct inspections of a boat does not reduce the responsibilities set out in this Notice of Race

      18.0 INSURANCE

    Each participating boat shall be insured with valid third-party liability insurance with a minimum cover of £3 million per event or the equivalent.
