2017 – Races & Competitions

Early Racing
With the constant addition of new races to the calendar (Jersey to Sark, Inter Insular, Corbiere, Sunset Series etc) we feel it would be helpful begin racing as early as feasibly possible. Having researched all of the suitable tides for next year it was concluded that we can start racing from mid March, weather dependant. This allows us a little breathing space during August/September to reschedule any postponed races.

GinD, Sunset, Baywatch
To add a little variety and give them their own identity, it is proposed that each series follows a different format. The GinD’s will remain as wave starts with results calculated on time to complete course. The Sunset Series, following on from previous years, will follow a handicap start format with points scored on finishing position within your particular class. The return of the hopefully popular Baywatch Series will see crews race to Portlet and back, Beauport and back and Gorey to Town. These three races will be mass start, as to provide much needed experience prior to the S2J and Carteret. The scoring will be reverse handicap format, meaning a predetermined handicap time will be deducted from your finishing time. This will hopefully encourage crews to push themselves throughout the entirety of the race as every second could potentially count.

Corbiere Cup
Following the much enjoyed Corbiere row/race that was completed this year I would like to create a standalone handicap race which has it’s own trophy. The race would be course handicapped (as it was in 2015) with crews having to negotiate a varying selection of bay marks based on their speed, prior to setting sights on Corbiere. The race will start and finish from the Elizabeth Castle Harbour arm with the turn point at Corbiere signalled audibly by a race controller.
