12-Mile-Island Regatta – Notice of Race

Notice of Race: Kanata Sailing Club 12-Mile-Island Regatta, Sunday 11 August 2019

The annual 12-Mile-Island (Harry Adderly) Regatta has been held since 2011. It is KSC’s longest distance race. Depending on boat used and wind conditions, the rounding of the island can take from 2.5 to 5 hours (with 3-4 hours being typical). Participating in the 12-Mile-Island Regatta (and completing the rounding) counts as a rounding for the Harry Adderly and Ken Eaves sponsored 12-Mile-Island Challenge.

Eligible Sailors/Boats

KSC members with boat sign-out privileges and their guests and members from other clubs with their own sailboats are welcome to enter the event. Classes and Starts All dinghy classes including monohulls and multihulls are permitted to race. Portsmouth Numbers will be used to determine the handicap rating for each class and to calculate the Corrected Time (CT) for each boat’s Elapsed Time (ET).

There will be one start — monohulls and multihulls will be required to start between 11:00 and 11:45. This is intended so that competitors will finish at closer to the same time. A self timed start and finish using the honour system will be used for this event.

Entry Fee

There is no entry fee.
