The CHPSC Tremadog Triangle is a 'Top Gear' style challenge - which you can attempt at any time in the CHPSC racing season - from 1st April to 12th November 2017.
You can enter the IRC Class (for Racing Boats) or NHC Class (for Cruisers) see definition below. There will be prizes for both Classes.
There is no limit to the number of attempts on the Challenge - why not see if you can beat your own time!
The course can be sailed clockwise or anti-clockwise (the choice is yours) using the club marks as follows:
- Anti-Clockwise - Start, 2p, 8p, 10p Finish
- Clockwise - Start, 10s, 8s, 2s, Finish
The start and finish lines are not as defined in the CHPSC Sailing Instructions which are amended below for convenience.
The start line is defined as follows:
The Start Line is a transit between the white mast with an orange top section on the foreshore and the ODM (mark O). The seaward end of the line is bounded by an ODM (mark 0). Boats shall cross this line in the direction of the first mark of the course, to start.' This amends CHPSC SI's 10.2
Take a note of time past each Mark in case of disputes!
The competitor with the best corrected elapsed time at the end of the season will be the winner.
We look forward to seeing lots of boats attempting the challenge!
Note the CHPSC Tremadog Challenge is governed by the rules as defined in the Racing Rules of Sailing . (RRS) and the CHPSC Sailing Instructions which is available here. By attempting the Challenge all competitors have read and understood the Risk Statement in the SI's (17)
Ella Trout III is now leading the Tremadog Bay Challenge with a corrected time of 58mins and 33 seconds
There is pleanty of time to record your time around the course: start 2, 8, 10 Finish - or the other way around if you want.
