Ahoy Monday Night Racers,
We are sure that you are aware that Monday is forecast to be an all time high temperature for Seattle. Ballard Cup Series 2 Race 4 will take place but without a race committee boat on the water. Participation in all of our events is strictly voluntary. As always, it is the skippers responsibility to judge the safety of the event for your crew.
The course will be NUN. There will be no horns or flag signals on the water. The start/finish line will be between the N buoy and the Yellow Painted Rock approximately due east from the buoy. Use your designated time to start as usual, using GPS time. We will attempt to make time calls over VHF for each class along with a repeat of the course at 5 minutes, followed by 5 second countdowns at 4 minutes, 1 minutes and start. You must take your own finish time including the seconds and report it along with the name of the boat in front of you and the boat behind you if possible. The website to submit your finish time information is here: Ballard Cup II Take Your Time Form.
If you have not seen the U buoy before, here is a picture of it thanks to Paul Viola.
Stay cool, bring sun block and ice cubes, and send us your finish time!
