COMPETITOR ANNOUNCEMENT NO. 4 : Gold Cup Regatta - Practice Racing Update

6 November 2014

On behalf of the Melges 32 Class Association and the Coconut Grove Sailing Club, I would like to welcome you to the 2014 Melges 32 Gold Cup. Just a reminder to all competitors that we will be hosting a practice racing session tomorrow (Thursday) afternoon with an initial warning scheduled for 1330. We will be running the practice races using one of our mark boats as signal and a buoy as a pin. This will not be the setup used for the remainder of the weekend as our signal boat, Blue Yonder, will be back with us on Friday and we will proceed with a two boat starting line thereafter. Our intention is to have two practice starts prior to the first practice race. All communications for both tomorrow and the weekend will be via VHF 73.

Additionally, our Skippers’ Meeting for tomorrow evening is scheduled for 1800. This will take place inside Monty’s.

Throughout the entirety of this event and the upcoming World Championship, should you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please feel free to reach out to me directly at any time.

Best of luck this weekend.
