The Sunday Sailing Event

The  fleet will gather at the Stone SC line where the race box will announce the course to be sailed.

The White Sail fleet will set off at 12:30pm followed by the rest of the fleet 5 minutes later. The course is likely to take the fleet out towards North Eagle and the Spitway buoy sailing for 5 to 6 hours before returning to a finish line in sufficient time to ensure the up river boats can return to their moorings at the top of the Blackwater & Colne.

What to Expect

This event incorporates the BJRC Stone Trophy race and will use the BJRC race card that can be found here on their website.

Please be sure to read the series sailing instructions and the safety declaration which can be found on this site. The specific Sailing Instructions for the Stone event will be emailed to everyone who registers 5 days before the event.

All boats participating will be issued with a local handicap number for the purposes of scoring the event and the BCOSS series. This will be a number based on the Byron and RYA PY handicapping system that is drawn from your club handicappers knowledge of your boat. This information is then used by the BCOSS handicapping committee that has representatives from the clubs on it, to generate a number for your boat relative to the rest of the fleet.

Other clubs and associations on the river will be using this event as one of their own, and will extract their own results from it to award their club and series points. in their clubs.
