HOW LEAGUES ARE RACED

Boats are provided so teams simply #rockupandrace

The Marconi event will use a fleets of 5 SB20 boats which will be raced by 10 teams who rotate around the boats so that every team sails on every boat multiple times throughout the weekend.

Races last no longer than 15 – 20 mins on two lap windward leeward courses. Turn around between races is swift and as many races are sailed as can be fitted in during both days.

The race area will be supported by a hospitality boat.

Races are umpired and protests are immediately settled during the race.

A high points scoring system is used and league positions are immediately known.

The team with the highest average score per race wins the league.
