***SPECIAL NOTICE OF NoR AMENDMENT***
Due to recent refinements in the ORR-EZ Rule, some boats that had a 2017 GPH rating of higher (slower) than the Shore Course speed limit cutoff of 655.0, now have a 2018 GPH rating lower (faster) than 655.0, which would make them ineligible for Division-II Shore Course this year.
To correct this unintended consequence, we have posted an amendment to the Notice of Race (NoR). Please note that this amendment only impacts the boats who sailed on the Shore Course last year and have made no changes to their boat or sail configurations. New sails are permitted under this amendment as long as they are the same size as the sail they are replacing.
While we may assume that everyone affected will want to stay on the Shore Course, you must contact the Race Chair or Technical Chair to apply for this exemption.
