RANSA today released Notice of Race for Twilight season commencing 2 November until 22 March. A feature is a new Sport Boat Division 1S which will start 5 minutes behind div 1 in a separate start. Div 1S will sail its own course, with top mark probably Obelisk instead of Lady Jane which will remain with div 1.

This will ensure better downwind angles and more competitive racing in nor'easters. Expect majority Flying Tigers. A new perpetual trophy will be dedicated.

This initiative has been designed to provide close racing in a competitive division on Sydney Harbour.

Entry form online.

why split em up at all, if it is non spinnaker? Friday arvo beer can races, right? Snag on a roll back at the club and a few cold ones sort of way to end the week and welcome the weekend.

What is a great name that you suggest should be used? Division 1S is the official name of the division, but a descriptor would be good. Weekly prizes back at Rushcutters.

It will be non-spin, basically beat out, run home about 6nm total distance.

Im guessing to help alleviate startline chaos with a growing fleet
shame to split the tigers and the 38s though, good sparring partners

You will have to fill me in

Hope I can swing by sometime soon. Maybe I should look for a SH ride and spend some time in Sydney.
