RESULTS 

ALL COMPETITORS MUST COMPLETE THE ENTRY FORM AND WAIVER IN ORDER TO PARTAKE IN THIS SERIES. 

Prior KSSS entrants have been automatically registered- please check/ edit your entry

ALL COMPETITOR PARTICIPANTS (skipper & crew) ARE REQUIRED TO COMPLETE THE WAIVER

waiver should be completed by a) the yacht owner and b) any and all crew members that will participate on the same yacht in KSC regattas. In the event a crew member has not signed the waiver, that crew member will be deemed to not be a participant in the regatta at the liability of the owner. It is the yacht owner’s responsibility to ensure that waivers are completed by all participating crew members. A yacht that appears in the vicinity of the course whose owner has not completed a waiver will be deemed a non-participant.

Race committee will attempt to identify recalled yachts and broadcast sail numbers on Ch69. Failure of a yacht to see or hear their recall shall not be grounds for redress.

Finish will be sailing back through the starting line.

Time limit 

If 1st boat in a class fails to cross the Start-Finish line in the first full lap within 2 hours of the start, the race will be considered abandoned for that class.

If the 1st boat in a class fails to round the windward mark on the 2nd lap within 2 hours of the start , then that class will be scored as they crossed the Start Finish line after the 1st lap .

 Yachts failing to finish within 30 minutes of the first place in each division will be marked Time Limit Expired (TLE)

Scoring Division  1 will be adjusted by PHRF rating. In order to qualify for the season standings, a yacht must compete in at least 50% of the events. Boats that do not finish will score 0 points but will be counted towards the number of qualifying races. Each yacht is required to provide one crew member to committee at least once during the series.
