PURSUIT RACES (PERSONAL HANDICAP)
An entry charge is made for each boat and a prize is given for each race.
Each competitor is given an individual handicap (in multiples of 1.5 mins).Starting letters are used to denote the starting sequence (eg A represents the first start, B is 1.5 minutes after the start, E represents 6.0 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).There are three pursuit days with three races on each and a prize for each race.
