SAILING INSTRUCTIONS

I. GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS

Rules: Racing shall be conducted in accordance with the Racing Rules of Sailing (RRS) for 2001-2004, as amended, the US SAILING’s prescriptions thereto, these sailing instructions and any amendments thereto, and the respective series notice for each event. This is a Club event- other Yacht Club or sailing association members are invited to participate. Therefore, all the JYC races are Category A Events (see Racing Rules of Sailing Appendix 1, Advertising).

Scoring: The low point scoring system, Appendix A, A4 (Low Point and Bonus Systems), will be used and is modified by the rest of this paragraph. The first place boat shall receive point. The following results, DSQ, RAF, DNF, DNS, OCS, and DNE (see Appendix A, A11 Scoring Abbreviations), will be scored points for the finishing place one more than the number of boats started (including those scored as OCS and DNS) in that boat’s race. DNC is not scored. Each boat’s score for each series shall be the average of the boat’s best N races (where N is the number of qualifying races as defined in each Series Notice). Worse scores are not discarded when prohibited by Rule 88.3 (b) of the Racing Rules of Sailing. Only one DSQ may be thrown out per series.

Protests: In addition to the requirements of The Racing Rules of Sailing, Rule 61.1, Informing the Protestee, the protesting boat shall inform the Race Committee of the protest and of the boat being protested, as soon as possible after finishing. Protests and requests for redress shall be made in accordance with The Racing Rules of Sailing, Part 5, Section A, Protests and Redress. The protest shall be written on a copy of the protest form found in the The Racing Rules of Sailing (a copy of the Protest Form is provided in the back of this circular) and shall be handed in to the Race Committee or mailed and postmarked, either of which no later than 24 hours after the race. Parties to the protest will receive notification when and where a protest meeting will be held. Video/audio tapes are not admissible evidence in protest hearings. Mail written protests to:

Steve McInnis

38 Bellevue Avenue

Newport, RI 02840

841-8480(o)

841-8555(fax)

293-0600(h)

Pending protests and results may be displayed on the JYC Bulletin Board at the Conanicut Marina as well as on the JYC Home Page (http://www.jyc.org). Typically protests will be heard within two weeks.

Communicating With the Race Committee: Except for checking in, there will be no conversation with, nor transfer of paperwork to, the race committee at the starting line.

Checking In: As a courtesy, each boat should sail by the race committee before the preparatory signal to identify by voice the boat sail number and class in which it will be racing.

Withdrawal from a Race: Boats withdrawing from a race shall so inform the race committee by the race time limit.

Changes to these Sailing Instructions: Any changes to these sailing instructions will be displayed on the JYC Bulletin Board at the Conanicut Marina and on the JYC Home Page (http://www.jyc.org) at least 24 hours before the race that the changes take effect.

Right of Way Vessels: All deep draft vessels and tugs/barges have right of way over sailing vessels. Respect of these rights is mandatory under the rules of the road.

II. RACE COMMITTEE SIGNALS

Course Signals: Course signals will be displayed by the Race Committee as numbers or letters to be read left to right where the left most digit (letter) designates a class and the following digit(s) identifies the course for that class. The Race Committee may shorten a race, The Racing Rules of Sailing, Rule 32, by stationing themselves, or another Race Committee boat displaying code flag S, at one of the marks of the course. The finish line shall be between the mark and the Race Committee with the mark to be passed on the side as called out by the course.

Fixed Courses: The course to be sailed is identified as a number to the right of the class designation. This course number translates to a set of marks to be rounded, the order in which they shall be rounded and the side to round each mark. These courses are defined in the course list at the back of this race circular. DO NOT USE THE COURSES ON THE 1992 OR 1998 SOUTH BAY CHART! USE THESE CHARTS FOR MARK IDENTIFICATION ONLY! A number in parentheses after a course number indicates the number of laps to be sailed, one (1) being understood. For example, the order of marks to be taken using the designated course of "9" would be: Start, Zp, 13p, Finish. For a designated course of "9(2)" the order of marks would be: Start, Zp, 13p, Zp, 13p, Finish.

Special Courses: The turning marks (to the right of the class designation) are identified in the order in which they shall be rounded and the side to round each mark. A number in parentheses after a course string indicates the number of laps to be sailed, one (1) being understood. For example, the order of marks to be taken using the course string of "Zp13p" would be: Start, Zp, 13p, Finish. For a designated course string of "Zp13p(2)" the order of marks would be: Start, Zp, 13p, Zp, 13p, Finish.

Starting Signals: Starting Signals will be made in accordance with The Racing Rules of Sailing Rule 26. Times of signals and signal intervals are identified in the appropriate notice of race series announcements. REMEMBER, THAT WE WILL BE USING THE SAME SEQUENCE AS IN 2001, WHICH WAS A SIGNIFICANT CHANGE FROM THE 1997-2000 RULE BOOK. PLEASE ALSO NOTE THAT EACH STARTING SEQUENCE FOR EACH CLASS IS INDEPENDENT OF THE PREVIOUS CLASS AND THAT THE TIMING OF THE WARNING FLAG FOR EACH CLASS IS ONLY APPROXIMATE RELATIVE TO THE CLASS BEFORE IT. THEREFORE, EACH CLASS SHOULD BE TIMED INDEPENDENTLY AND NOT BASED ON THE SIGNALS FOR THE PREVIOUS CLASS OR CLASSES.

General Recalls: The last sentence of The Racing Rules of Sailing Rule 29.3. is replaced by this paragraph. A recalled class will not start until after all subsequent classes in the original starting sequence. The warning signal for the recalled class will be sounded APPROXIMATELY one minute after the start of the last scheduled class. If there is more than one general recall, class order will be maintained with the warning signal of each general recalled class being sounded APPROXIMATELY one minute after the start of the previously recalled class.

Signals Made Ashore: Abandonment/Cancellation may be made ashore at the Conanicut Marina due to fog, severe weather or no wind. The Abandonment/Cancellation will be announced on Channel 72.

III. COURSE INFORMATION

Course Chart: The 1998 South Bay Race Chart designates the marks referenced on the course list in this book. Copies are available at each participating yacht club. Note: The Jamestown courses on the 1998 South Bay Race Chart DO NOT match the courses in this race circular for 2001 racing. Use this circular for the course identification and use the South Bay Race Chart for the identification of the marks ONLY.

Starting & Finishing Areas: Starting and finishing areas to be used for the series using these instructions are:

The Starting Area is bounded by special race Mark 3 (NE of Conanicut YC) to the North, Buoy F (not shown on chart) to the South and the Bay channel to the East. Typically the Starting Line is at Mark 3. The finish line is between Buoy F and the Conanicut Marina main gas pier. Buoy F is located approximately 500 feet East of the marina pier. Buoy F shall be the eastern most red channel buoy. If for some reason we do not have a Race Committee Boat, we will be using the Finish Line for the Start Line also.

The race committee may display code flag "L" and lead contestants to another starting area if racing conditions so require.

When the course signal postscripts the last mark as the finishing mark (fin), the finish line will be at the last mark.

Starting and Finishing Lines: The starting and finishing lines will be between the Race Committee Flag and the nearby mark.

Turning Marks: Turning marks will be designated as noted on the course chart. Special racing Marks 1 and 8 are yellow plastic barrels. Marks 3 and 4 are yellow spherical buoys. Mark Z is a yellow cylinder with the letter "Z" thereon, located just northeast of the rock off Clark’s Boatyard in the Dumplings area, approximate position 41 29,211N/71 21.351W. Mark 15 is a yellow cylinder located in Potter Cove, approximate position 41 30.90N / 71 21.62W, with "15" painted on two sides.

Special Instructions: A boat shall not sail between Rose Island and the Newport Bridge or between the Dumplings and Conanicut Island. When sailing under the Newport Bridge, a boat shall use one of the three (3) center spans of the suspension section of the bridge. Boats shall pass through only the center span of both Jamestown Bridges.

Marks T or 6 as the Last Mark: Notice is hereby given that Mark T lies to the northward of the extension of the finish line at the Conanicut Marina dock and that Mark 6 lies to the southward of such extension. You should use this information in determining which way to cross the finish line in accordance with the Definitions contained in the Racing Rules of Sailing.

All government aids to navigation must be observed, except in the leg of a race where it is used as a turning mark and the following: Mark 13 (C"13") North of the Newport Bridge, and Mark V (G"17") Southeast of Gould Island. REMINDER: Narragansett Bay is a restricted waterway for commercial shipping.

JAMESTOWN YACHT CLUB SAILING INSTRUCTIONS

SUPPLEMENT

1. Conflicts: In the event of conflicting sailing instructions, these sailing instructions shall have precedence.

2. Eligibility: Entrants must be a current member of a yacht club or registered fleet and submit the Entry and Waiver forms (in the back of this circular), PHRF rating certificate by PHRF of Narragansett Bay and the appropriate fee to the JYC as described in paragraph 4 below. Mail the above forms and fees (see paragraphs 3 and 4 below) to:

Steve McInnis

38 Bellevue Avenue

Newport, RI 02840

PHRF forms can be obtained from PHRF-NB at:

PHRF-NB

P.O. Box 73

Bristol, RI 02809-0073

Phone: (401) 253-0207

Fax: (401) 254-1495

Home Page: http://www.phrf-nb.org/

3. Forms: The forms provided herein may either be copied or pulled from this booklet. We need all the forms and the fee in order to classify a boat as registered. The Race Committee can not accept the forms and fee while on the starting line. Remember, NO FORMS, NO RACE, NO KIDDING!!! Do not participate in the racing if not registered; this can have an impact on the registered boats and is not fair to the registered boats. It is possible for non-registered boats that impact registered boats that are racing to be protested (see The Racing Rules of Sailing Rules 22.1 and 64.1c) and possibly even barred from all racing.

4. Entry Fees: For members of the Jamestown Yacht Club, the fee is $25.00 per series or $45.00 for all series and specialty events. For non-members, the fee is $35.00 per series or $65.00 for all series and specialty events. Specialty events only (e.g., Crew Rotation Race, Night Race) are $15.00 each for members and non-members alike. There will be a $5.00 fee credit for US SAILING members. A late charge of $10.00 will be added for all boats registering less than 24 hours before the first race of each series.

5. Results: After each Tuesday night race, the results will be posted in the downstairs restaurant of the Jamestown Golf Club Caddy Shack, on the JYC Bulletin Board at the Conanicut Marina and in The Jamestown Press and on the JYC Home Page (http://www.jyc.org).

6. Overboard Discharge: Discharge of sewage and/or non-biodegradable materials during a race will be grounds for disqualification.

7. JYC Member Qualifiers: JYC boats that participate in the Cruise Week at the same time as a Summer Series Race shall get a qualifier for that week's race. Any JYC skippers that participate in a yacht club team race supporting the JYC at the same time as one of the JYC races shall get a qualifier for that race (as long as their boat does not race in the JYC race). A qualifier will be used as follows. If the boat with the qualifier has one less race than the minimum required, then the qualifier will give them the minimum required for the series and the scoring will be computed based on the boat’s actual number of races vice the minimum (e.g., a boat with a qualifier that has six races and seven are needed to qualify, then the boat will qualify and be scored based on the average of the six races vice seven).

8. Changes in Class: A registered boat will not be allowed to change classes in the middle of a series if at that time the number of races left in the series is less than the minimum required for a boat to qualify.

9. Change of Boat: A boat and owner combined is the registered entity. A change of boats by an owner within a series will constitute a new entry. The new boat may or may not qualify depending on how many races the owner’s new boat races. This will require a new Racing Entry Form, etc. and only a $10 fee will be levied. Change of boats by an owner between series will also require a new Racing Entry Form, etc. and a $10 fee will be levied. In order for the old boat to race, a new Racing Entry Form, etc. must be submitted along with the regular entry fees as itemized on the Racing Entry Form and will be considered a new entry effective upon receipt of all forms and fees.

10. Race Committee Communications: As a courtesy, race committee communications will be made on Channel 72. Boats may be identified for Individual Recalls. General Recalls, Postponements and Abandonment/Cancellations may be announced. The Race Committee will also announce, before the Warning Signal, that races will be held by the Jamestown Yacht Club and the location of the racing on Channels 13 and 16.

11. Handicap Scoring: Time on Time is used to calculate corrected elapse times. The following equation is used:

Corrected Elapse Time = (Actual Finish Time - Start Time) * (650 / (550 + PHRF)).

12. After Clearing the Finish Line: After clearing the finish line, do not recross the finish line. This may hide other boats finishing from the Race Committee. CHERYL MAY BE ARMED FOR PUNISHMENT OF TRANSGRESSORS OF THIS RULE.
