RULES
The regatta will be governed by the rules as defined in The Racing Rules of Sailing including Appendix E. Sailing Instructions may change Appendix E and protest/redress procedures. Races may be umpired, and if so will be explained in the Sailing Instructions. RC Laser class rules apply; only B and C
sails are allowed.

ELIGIBILITY
The regatta is open to RC Lasers. NYC has 8 club boats available for a $50 charter fee. Boats have B and C sails. (*bring plenty of your own AA batteries).

SCORING
The planned format is to divide the fleet into three equal-size groups, A, B, and C. A ‘set’ of races will be comprised of three races, A&B, B&C, and A&C. If all planned races are not completed, the event will be scored at the end of the last complete ‘set’. The Low Point Scoring System in Appendix A will be used. When a boat has sailed 6 or more races her worst score will be excluded. When she has sailed 12 or more races her worst two scores will be excluded.

ABOUT THE BITTER END FOUNDATION
We are committed stewards of our planet’s oceans. We support the continued success, unique needs, and wellbeing of seaside communities by providing in-kind, financial and educational support, protecting sea life, undersea and surrounding habitats, and encouraging conservation efforts. We are the non-profit affiliate of the Bitter End family of companies including Bitter End Yacht Club in the British Virgin Islands and US- based Bitter End Provisions. We started out in September of 2017 as the Bitter End Irma Relief Fund, responding to the catastrophic impact of Hurricanes Irma and Maria. These storms decimated our 50-year old resort, and devastated the lives of the people who live and work in Bitter End’s home, the British Virgin Islands.The response to our fundraising efforts made us realize that Bitter End should have a much larger philanthropic mission. Our goal for the Bitter End Foundation is that it become a meaningful and long-term force for positive change in communities like ours that are inextricably connected to the sea.

THANKS TO OUR SPONSORS!
