Updated July 2023:
There has been some confusion about the SI's for the Locke Trophy series, and the need or not for racers to go through the line on each lap. From now on you do need to!
Up until now, the SI's have not required passing through the line for each lap. However, to provide clarity, and to make it easier for the RO, these have now been amended (Annex A) to 'All boats to pass through the line on every lap'.
Changes from 2022:
If flag 'S' is flown from the organising Club's signal mast, a patrol boat may position itself at a mark of the course displaying flag 'S'. Competitors shall round that mark and proceed directly to the respective Club finish line, crossing the line in the direction from the last mark. If a red or green flag is displayed on the patrol boat with flag 'S', competitors shall round the mark in the direction identified by the coloured flag,(which itself maybe different to the direction on the course card) and proceed directly to the respective Club finish line, crossing the line in the direction from the last mark. This amends Rule 32.2.
Added to end of 18.3
Helms that have served as a race official for a given day of racing, are entitled to claim average points for a day of racing they would have been eligible to otherwise compete in. Average points may only be claimed in regard to a single day of racing during a series.
