Each round of racing will be divided into randomly drawn heats such that each entrant will race once per round. The number of sailors in each heat will be dependent on wind conditions on the day.

Racing will be run in accordance with The Rules page of the club’s website  http://www.bopblokartclub.nz/sailing-events/the-rules-1

The duration of races may be for a set time or for a set number of laps.

Race officials will make the decision whether to start a race or not, and may shorten or abandon a race after it has started (including abandoning the race after the designated time for the race has passed). 

Race drops: A sailor’s worst race placing will be dropped after 8 rounds; the second worst placing dropped after 15 rounds; and the third worst place dropped after 21 rounds.
