A Line between the main mast of the Committee Vessel and a designated Buoy immediately outside the Oostende Harbour entrance. This Buoy position will be broadcast on VHF72 at least 1 hour prior to the start of the race. Yachts should start in a direction indicated by the Committee Vessel. The Committee Vessel may set an inner limit mark in which case this must be similarly observed as part of the said Committee Vessel.
FIRST MARK (?), BT Ratel (P), Ruytingen NW (S), South Falls (S), Goodwin Knoll (P), Channel Buoys No. 2, No.4, No.6 (S); North Quern (P), Finish (59 miles) The First Mark will be provided by the Race Officer at Oostende.
This course will be provided by the Race Officer at Oostende – please ensure you contact the committee boat prior to leaving the marina.
The Finish Line runs 310° magnetic from North Quern to the Race Hut Flag Mast. Number 6 which may not be on the finish line is an inner distance mark. Yachts should take their finishing time when the North Quern bears 130° magnetic (reciprocal of the bearing above – although this is immaterial as the boats will finish as soon as their bow reaches the mark). Please take note of how close the North Quern is to the Quern Bank.
