All courses will start to windward per the diagrams below. Yachts shall not re-cross SF downwind.
Division 1: S-A-B-SF-B-F
SF is a gate, S being the pin (yellow inflatable mark) and F the boat end. All other marks round to port.

Course description for our newcomers!
You will start between the boat and pin end of the line SF heading to wind.
Round A to port and head down to B
Don't sail back through the start finish line downwind
SF is a gate- round either end from inside- S would be a port rounding, F would be a starboard rounding
Sail back downwind rounding B to port, then upwind through the finish line.
Start line will be in the vicinity of Hunts Point with the pin end represented by an inflatable yellow racing buoy and committee boat end either Catalina 30 "Earth's Edge" or other boat.
Prior to the start of each race at 1:00pm, each competitor will sail past the race committee hailing the boat name and sail number. Check in by VHF radio is not permitted and will not be acknowledged.
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.
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.
Withdrawals/ retirements shall notify committee on Ch69
Protests- there will be no protest hearings.
