      5. SAILING INSTRUCTIONS.  Sailing instructions will be available at registration which will be from 12-1 PM September 4 at the Registration  Table and will be available after that on                      porch wall.

     6. THE COURSES.  The courses will be one or more laps of a Windward-Leeward or Triangle course between the marsh island south of the city of  Beaufort and the McTeer Bridge.

     7. SCORING.  The Low Point System will apply less excludable scores as described here.

Throw outs for races completed: none if fewer than 6 races; one if 6 or 7 races; two if 8 or 9 races; three if 10-14 races; four if 15-19 races and five if  20 or more races. This modifies rule A2.                Six races are required to be completed to constitute a series.

Boats that are scored DNS (Did not start), DNF (Did not finish), RET (Retired), DSQ (Disqualified) or OCS (On course side) will receive points for  the finishing place one more than the                      number of boats in that class that came to the starting area; Boats that did not sail to the starting area will be scored DNC (Did Not Compete) and will receive points two more than the                        number of boats in that class that sailed to the starting area. This is a change to Rule A9, sentence 2. “Coming to the starting area” means sailing to the area of the starting line.  One                            boat entering the race will be scored.   Sailors serving on the race committee will receive credit for the races missed and scored an average of all her series races sailed, less throwouts.

  1. PRIZES. Prizes will be awarded based on the number of boats of each class sailing 50% or more of the races, as follows:  1st place for two boats; 1st & 2nd places for four boats; 1st, 2nd and 3rd places for 5 or more boats.
  1. DISCLAIMER OF LIABILITY.
