Finish Line: The Finish Line runs 120° magnetic from Race Hut Flag Mast to the North Quern Buoy. Number 6 which may not be on the finish line is an inner distance mark. Yachts should take their finishing time when North Quern bears 300° magnetic (reciprocal of the bearing above – although this is immaterial as the boats will finish as soon as their bow reaches the mark).
