Format: Races will be held on a course set up by the race committee. Windward, Leeward format, twice around. If there are 3 or more of any type of boat, a separate start will be held for that class, otherwise all boats start together. This will be determined during a short skippers meeting at 5:30 on Thursdays and 1pm on Saturdays at the dinghy ramp. Scoring will be one design for lasers and any other class that has 3 or more participants. For classes with less than three, PHRF will be used with the larger fleet. Laser is the recommended class. The Race committee will target two races of about a half hour each, with an on water determination for additional races. Club lasers may be available for members providing there is availability and an instructor to assist with boat preparation. The long distance race will be an East Club racing course determined on the day of the race. After completing 12 races, each racer will have 3 drop races. Any additional races held will add a drop race at the rate of 1 drop per two races sailed (eg. 13 races sailed - 3 drops, 14 races sailed - 4 drops)
