Further to the last skippers meeting held on 31 January, there was a suggestion to split Twilight Division 3 into two separate divisions.   This matter was discussed at the last Sailing Committee meeting where it was agreed to trial this for the month of March, after which the outcome will be reviewed prior to a final decision.

 

As a result the following Division 3 boats, and any other non-trailable boats, will start with Division 2 (Purple class flag), but sail only two laps (exception – An Average Day and Suzanne Marie sail only one lap): 

  • Amadeus
  • An Average Day
  • Annie T
  • Anthea
  • Fargo
  • Infarrction
  • Island Time
  • Pacific Phoenix
  • Riff Raff
  • Suzanne Marie
  • Victorious

 

The balance of Division 3 (Trailable Yachts) will continue to start 5 minutes later under the Pink Class Flag.

 

Please note that this is a TRIAL only in accordance with the wishes from the skipper’s meeting.  While results will be merged for the purpose of the Twilight aggregate, separate weekly prizes will be awarded for corrected time results, but not for best start.  Also note that this applies to TWILIGHT races only, and does not affect weekend racing.
