    Measurement Discrepancy

    They can be adjusted. Usually to read zero at the point of contact, or for the faint of heart, some place just before.

    After years on race boats, I finally got on to a biggish comfy boat 6 races ago, AND I'm still waiting for the hard on the wind race to make it worthwhile! Ahh but X Boats do have good fridges so at least there is a cold beverage each afternoon.

    If you check 2019 map you will find 4 start lines & 5 rounding marks!

    Never been a huge fan of this requirement, but it is probably a bit hard to declare, "(a) its HF Radio is fully operational and fit for purpose;" if you can't get through on said HF! Yes I understand the limitations of HF, but if you can't get a transmission to any of 3 possibilities spread over about 300 miles, can you be sure enough to declare it is fully operational? Should we dump HF all together? Another argument.

    Just a small point Bundeena is on Port Hacking, just a little south of the main starting area.

    Needs more oomph in the South bit, and maybe another one in a day or so.
