Below are updated MBSA instructions, please note that we have had to change the start line
due to the movement of Heysham No2 buoy, also we are going to send the multihulls off
10 minutes before the monohulls to avoid complications,
if possible please print off & hand out instructions to your crews although the course information
will be broadcast on channel 72 as per recent years,
also worth a mention that there is a multihull trophy this year, as well as the usual
Class 1 (PY<1050)
Class2 (PY>1050)
Team prize (best 3 corrected times per club)
Seldom Seen (outstanding effort/cock up)
also that skippers can chose weather to use spinnakers/chutes on day & PY will be adjusted to suit after race
