SUNDAY 26th AUGUST 2012
The course will go from the start off the Needles at 10.00 towards Portland and then to Diffusers/Teignmouth Outfall Buoy. The boats will turn at this mark and head towards the Exmouth DZ SE buoy. From there the boats will return to Portland and back to the Isle of Wight.
We expect around 20 boats to take part. We expect the leading boat will be in your area around 11.00 hrs, with the rest of the fleet following over the next two or three hours. If you would like further details, this is the link to the racing instructions http://cowes2012.co.uk/ri.pdf
We will have a fleet of safety marshal and observer boats at both buoys and will have a dedicated Safety Officer, taking responsibility for this part of the course. For your information, I have also discussed this race with the Harbour Master.
In the meantime if you have any concerns regarding our proposed event, please do not hesitate to contact me.
