New for 2016: Spinnakers may be used!
Season’s Challenge 2016 is open from 1st May to 30th September (extended to Liftout).
What’s it all about?
In recognition of the popularity of Top Gear for ‘petrol-heads’ there will be a competition for the fastest rounding of the islands in the Forth Estuary by RFYC yachts during the season.
The islands are:
via Mortimers Deep buoyed channel & passing west of Ch Buoy 15
via a rounding south of the Little Herwit Green Buoy in the Narrow Deep.
Isle of May
stopping overnight if required by taking times at a near point off the island lights
Yacht skippers are open to choosing the most favourable wind and tide conditions for their passages.
Prizes may be awarded for this challenge if sufficient yachts compete.
For rules and more information, see the current year’s Sailing Instructions 2016.
Forms for recording your passage are available in the clubhouse or can be downloaded and printed off here.
