RNLI Pursuit Series
The RNLI Pursuit Series is run on Sunday mornings in two phases, the first phase is alongside the Summer Series in May, June and July and the second alongside the Autumn Series in September and October. The Series is composed of a 60-minute pursuit race each Sunday morning, split across the Summer and Autumn Series. The racing will start at 11.00hrs promptly.
A Pursuit Race Start Times document (specific to Ripon SC) can be found on the Classes and Fleets page of the Sailing Section of the Club's website.
The principle of Pursuit racing is that the slowest dinghy (as determined by their Portsmouth Yardstick (PY)) starts first, followed at intervals by all other dinghies, depending on their PY; against a formula which should ensure that after 60-minutes, if all dinghies were sailed equally well, they would cross the finish line at the same time. This type of racing is ideal for newcomers to racing as it reduces the number of dinghies on the start line at any one time.
The trophy for this series, and a record of recent winners, can be viewed here in the Trophy Cabinet on the Club's website. The Junior RNLI Trophy here. You are required to be logged in to view the Trophy Cabinet.
