New this year from the WYC SIs:
New starting mark will be Lime Green , unless otherwise announced on-the-water by RC. Last year we had 4 protests/requests for redress in champ races and regatta events because competitors confused the orange starting mark as a orange course marks. The advantages of a different colored mark ultimately provides RC flexibility to leave the buoy in the water.
The 2017 racing season is fast approaching. Be sure to consult the master WYC schedule for times and dates.
While not official, the WYC PHRF Facebook group is a great way to keep in touch with fleet goings-on.
