Prince Henry AMENDED SI Posted 19 August

An amended SI was posted for this year’s Prince Henry race.  It may be viewed/downloaded at this link.

Changes from last year are highlighted in yellow.  The most significant among those is the creation of 200 foot “arrival circle” around each mark.  You may of course round your selected mark as in a typical race, but new this year is the option to pass the mark without regard to the next leg so long as you are within 200′ of the mark.  Members had noted that several of our marks are adjacent to shoal water and thought it prudent to provide a safe option and as well we had noted that some Prince Henry mark-pair roundings are ambiguous when one considers the traditional “pull the string” concept in a traditional race.  Creating a 200′ circle around each mark which constitutes “arrival” eliminated those issues.  Should you have any questions please feel free to reach out to me or any member of the board.

Lastly, it isn’t too late to register for this unique race.  We will close entries on Wednesday at the end of the day.  A scratch sheet will be provided Thursday.
