Please find below documents for downloading regarding Notice of Race, Sailing Instructions and Amendments, scoring, handicapping etc. Note that the 2017-18 SCYC/MYC Combined Clubs' Series will run concurrently with existing SCYC calendar events. For SCYC events which run concurrently with CCS races, the CCS Sailing Instructions replace and over-ride all relevant clauses of the SCYC Sailing Instructions.
The current handicaps can be found on the latest Race Results sheet for the relevant race series.
SCYC WAMS races are currently run as pursuit races based on a handicap start system. Each boat is allotted a start time when signing on for the race. No allotted start time shall be before 12:00h on the day of the race. Start times will depend on the predicted elapsed race time on the day and each boat's handicap as calculated by TopYacht. First across the line wins and TopYacht uses the finish times to calculated the handicap start times the following week.
An example of the allocated Start times can be downloaded below. Actual Start times are advised at log-on.
