Pursuit Series » Pursuit Series
The Pursuit Series is a great event for sailors of all abilities and consists of 3 races, with a prize for the winning boat in each race. The first gun is not before 10.25am, subsequent races will be run at times outlines by the race committee / PDO
Each competitor is given an individual handicap (in multiples of 1.5 mins), based on the boat they are sailing and their own personal experience. Starting letters are used to denote the starting sequence (eg A represents 1.5 minutes after the start, E represents 7.5 minutes after the start). You start as your start letter is taken down and you then have to chase the slower boats which have started in front.
The race length is as close to 60 minutes as possible (as this is the duration the handicaps were calculated on).
