The next event is on Wednesday 31 July, followed by the Cawsand special event on Sunday 4 August.  For convenience the Cawsand instructions are repeated below so that Challengers can dig out a chart and get started with passage planning.

The Officer of the Day will coordinate using VHF channel 72.
 
2.       CAWSAND EVENT 4 AUGUST – RETURN  Yachts shall weigh anchor as convenient to start the return event during the time “slot” 1600-1630.  Yachts shall start by leaving Queens Ground Buoy to starboard and when the buoy is in transit with the Breakwater Light.  The course home takes the flood and is:

3.         SAILING IN THE HAMOAZE AND SOUND  Challengers are reminded that warships and merchant ships have absolute right of way in the Hamoaze and in the Sound, and that yachts should not impede the Torpoint Ferries.  Probably there will be yacht racing taking place in the Sound so Challengers should keep a good look-out.
 
4.         STRONG WINDS FORECAST ON 4 AUGUST  If strong winds are forecast on 4 August, the Officer of the Day may arrange a shorter more sheltered course and anchorage eg finish at Battery Point buoy and anchor in Barn Pool.
