The next race in the White Sail Series is scheduled for Saturday 25th July, with an 11am start on the normal club line. This race also forms part of the 2015 BCOSS (Blackwater Colne Open Sailing Series), for which different time limits apply.
An amendment has therefore been issued in respect of the West Mersea White Sail Series, and this is attached.
The BCOSS event includes a separate class for White Sail boats, and if you wish to compete in this series (and at no extra cost be eligible to win prizes for the 25th July race!) it is necessary toregister for BCOSS. It only takes a few minutes, and to do so, please go to www.bcoss.org
All WMYC and DSC White Sail starters on 25th July will be given a score in the West Mersea White Sail Series. Two sets of results will be calculated for the race – for the BCOSS race, standard BCOSS (Local Handicap) numbers will be used, whilst for the Mersea White Sail Series, the progressive handicap system already in use will continue to apply.
The full Sailing Instructions for the BCOSS Series can also be found on the BCOSS website, and the amendments relating to the race on 25th July will be posted there shortly.
