Sailing Instruction Notes

Competitors must have sailed one event (using the result) away from their own club to qualify for the Northern Series

N.B. All Northern District RC Laser races are now run to Standard Sailing Instructions, see UKRCLA site for a full listing.

The races that are specifically for the Northern District have an additional caveat - This is, in effect, an encouragement to persuade you to lend your boat. 

If you lend your boat while a race is taking place, whether to race or simply to introduce a spectator to RC Laser sailing, so long as you tell the Race Officer, you will receive either the actual score for that race if the borrowing skipper is good,  or an average points score of your races up to that point in the proceedings, WHICHEVER IS THE BETTER. In other words, you do not lose out.

And no, you have to be reasonable, you can't win the first race and lend your boat for all the others!


Venues

In the past event venues have been tried at :- Glasson Dock (Weed), Preston Dock (poor 

attendance). 

If you know of a potential NW venue good sailing water, central for travelling 

Please contact Robert on 07977 302696.


Northern Series and TTs how to qualify.

Where events are marked as  Northern District (TT) Event and TT then the results are also fed into the National RC Laser series called the TTs.  

Association membership is required for a TT result to be entered into the National Series, where 3 TT results need to be recorded to qualify, but we are fortunate that in the North West we have four (plus the Sunday of the Nationals if you have entered the Nationals) TTs so we can qualify locally. 

If you are not a member of the RC Laser Association then your Northern Series results are not affected and your results count towards the ND series result.
