Junior Classes – Pursuit Race this Saturday for the Miss Betty Cup

Saturday will be the last day of Junior Sailing before
AccBankCorkWeek and we are expecting a big turnout for the "All
in" Miss Betty Cup.

All Junior Classes are eligible and this year the event
is being run as a pursuit race, ie the boats all start at different times
depending on their handicap.

Provisional start times based on the Portsmouth Handicap are
as follows:

Oppie Bronze

1430

OPTIMIST Silver

1435

Oppie Gold

1438

MIRROR

1448

TOPPER

1452

TOPAZ UNO

1456

RS FEVA

1457

LASER 4.7

1458

FIREFLY

1459

LASER RADIAL

1501

420

1502

LASER

1503

TOPAZ OMEGA

1503

 

Racing will be around a number of marks on the Curlane Bank
and the finish will be at 1555 when a line will be laid in
front of the leading boat.

The whole idea is to catch the boats in front of you (or
just stay ahead if you are in the Oppie Bronze) and if the handicaps are
accurate the finish should be close.

 

Good luck to everyone and if you have a type of boat that is
not listed here please let us know and we will advise you of your start time on
the day.
