Kent Martin Winter Series
If the Friday 10:00 PM weather forecast on Channel 4 predicts a high temperature of 40F or higher then the race is on. The official starting time 0:00 hour is 12:00 PM. The competitors are encouraged to gather in the clubhouse before going out since there is no PRO for these races and the racing chair will not always be present. The current forecast for this weekend is a high of 47 F with wind out of the SW at 9 mph. Check the sailing instructions in the clubhouse. The rain kept the fair weather sailors away last Saturday but a couple of boats made it out.
The Sailing Instructions for the winter series have been revised and the revised SI is posted in the clubhouse. The important thing to know is that the SI now clarifies that the upstream turning mark is the next green channel mark beyond Lindsley Light, not the mark abeam of Lindsley Light. That is the mark that most closely approximates a 5 or 8 mile course.
