PerCS Instructions and Results
The New Winter PerCS began on Saturday 13 July. We plan to have 3 series of 8 races throughout the sailing year. There will be 2 fleet starts at 11:00 and 11:30. The presentation is to be held in conjunction with the normal SAGS presentation later in the afternoon. This would normally be at around 16:30. Dates are as follows: 27 July,10 August, 24 August,14 September, 21 September (due tides), 12 October and 26 October. Unpack those spinnakers and get out there!
Amended Scoring System 2017/18
The system trialed last season and adopted for the current season gives up to 3% improvement to your penalty if you perform under 100%. This matches the up to 3% penalty for boats that perform above 100%. The effect during the trial gave a much more even distribution of prizes and rapidly corrected any anomalies in handicaps awarded to new boats entering the series or when weather conditions are such that some entrants are consistently advantaged or disadvantaged. Series score is taken from best 8 of 11 races. There are no penalties for extras.
This shows the GPS location of a rock that may be a hazard to deep draft boats at low tide. It is on the line between Scarborough Outer Leads and Reef Point.
