1. Race start times usually begin at 1.30pm, the start will usually be at the Grass Beds.
Racing will not commence if a gale warning has been issued for the race day, or if, in the opinion of the sailing committee prior to the commencement of the race, wind gusts are in excess of 25 knots.
2. The start line will be between "Swan Rescue" and a laid buoy.
3. Briefing time is usually 12:00 noon; at any rate one and one half hours before the advertised race start time, at Queenscliff Harbour, in front of the office.
4. The decision to participate in a QLYC Inc. organised event is the responsibility of the skipper and crew of a vessel.
Skippers, it is your responsibility to be aware of any circumstance affecting the safety of your vessel and its occupants. These circumstances include but are not limited to knowledge of predicted tidal flows and of the forecast weather.
You are expected to carry a chart of the waters where the event will be conducted.
