Auckland Slalom Series 2011-12 Race 1 This Sunday

Sunday, September 18, 2011 - 09:00 - 17:00

Here are the details about the Auckland Slalom Series 2011-12.

There will be 6 fixed weekends set aside for racing. These are the weekends of

18 September, Bayswater Windsurf Race Day 1
2 October, A'nd Distribution Race Day 2
30 October, Carbon Art Race Day 3
27 November, WSP Race Day 4

4 March and 18 March are reserve days and so is each weekend in April and May if needed. A bias will be given to Sunday's for race day.

It will be a 4 day race series so if each of the first four weekends above have sufficient wind, then racing will conclude on 27 November. A decision to race (and on which day of the weekend) will be made on the Thursday before each weekend. A bias will be given to Sunday racing.

On each race day we will run racing for two fleets. A Gold Fleet and a silver fleet. Sailors can elect which fleet they wish to be in but may be asked to move up or down by organisers. This is to ensure a good balance of sailors with similar abilities in each fleet. There should not be a need to run heats within each fleet. So all sailors in a fleet will race each other for each race on the day and for all races of the series. Sailors will stay in their fleet for the duration of the race series. If a fleet has more than 10 sailors in it then we may need to spilt that fleet into heats.

Entry fee is $100 for the series or $30 per race day. A series entry will include a seriously cool Auckland Slalom Series T-shirt. But we will need your entries before 23 September is you want the T. More details and how to enter can be found in the Notice of Race document below.
