Summer Handicap Series
The Summer Series is run on Sundays in May, June and July. Two races are planned for each Sunday afternoon of the series, these races follow the RNLI Pursuit Series race in the morning. The first race will start after lunch, commencing no earlier than 13:00hrs. There will usually be a short the break between the two races (for tea and cake). Racing is in four fleets, three handicap fleets (Fast, Medium and Slow) and a separate fleet for Streakers.
The Race Officer may run four separate starts, at three-minute intervals, or combine fleets with small numbers. The results for the three handicap fleets will be calculated based the PY of each dinghy in that fleet.
The trophies for this series, and a record of recent winners, can be viewed in the Trophy Cabinet on the Club's website. The Streaker Fleet Trophy here, Fast Fleet Trophy here, Medium Fleet here and Slow Fleet here. You are required to be logged in to view the Trophy Cabinet.
The Summer Junior Hart Cup Series runs alongside the Summer Series. For this series junior sailors start with the Summer Series Slow Handicap Fleet and finish after one lap. Those wishing to also compete in the Summer Series are able to continue racing until the Summer Series Slow Fleet is finished. Junior Hart Cup Trophy here.
