Cavalcade - Special Edition!

When attending the Cavalier 28 Annual Dinner/Prize Giving at the Royal Sydney Yacht Squadron on Friday, 6 May, a couple of people mentioned to me that they enjoyed reading the Cavalcade Newsletter. I was happy to hear that as having been the editor of the newsletter for the last 16 years, I must say I am finding it difficult with each new edition to say something interesting, newsworthy or amusing.
During the night, it also struck me that when a couple of the crew members from the various boats were asked to give a brief comment on the highs and lows of the last season, a couple of people, myself included, made comment about the last race held on 2 April.
This gave me an idea to do something a little different, a Cavalcade about just one race from a very personal perspective, a view from the nut behind the wheel...[more]

Racing Rules - Did You Know

Did you know that the only time a 360 turn is appropriate as an exoneration is for touching a mark (unless varied by the SIs, as during the SHR)?  In all other cases (including a port/starboard offence), you are exonerated (if it is possible at all) by a 720 turn.

In fact, the terms 360 & 720 are not entirely appropriate.  All that is really required is one (or two) tack and one (or two) gybe in the same direction.  It is not required to complete the full 360 (or 720) degree turn!

If after taking your penalty turns you are still at an advantage having infringed the rules, your only remaining option is to retire!
