Race Rules

There will be two competitions within the 2019 Marathon for the following classes:-

    - Spinnaker
      - Non Spinnaker

      Within the classes, boats will be rated according to a handicap system prescribed by the committee. There will be a daily winner for each class competition, and two classcwinners at the end of the event, based on shortest elapsed time corrected by handicap. .

      Boats will normally start from, and end on, a beach - but safety will be paramount and may dictate a water start on any day. Special timing arrangements will be made by the Bridge for boats that cannot start from the beach.

      More information will be given during the daily ‘skippers briefing’.
