From 1st October 2019, club Sailing Instruction 9.2 will change to:
9.2 A general recall will be signalled by the displaying of the First Substitute flag (two sound signals) as soon as possible after the class start. The First Substitute flag will be removed (one sound signal) one minute after the class start. The warning signal for a new start for the recalled class shall be made one minute after the First Substitute is removed. Subsequent classes will still start at their scheduled time. This changes RRS 29.2. An explanatory document with diagrams is available HERE for more details).
An email has been sent to members describing the change, the reason for it, and the implications to OODs and competitors. If you haven't received this email, you can find the content of it HERE.
