The next Pinhey’s Point Time Trial is scheduled for June 27, 2021; start window is 1200-1205.
The first event was held June 5 — see the results. Conditions varied from dead calm to 20+ knots, but all in all, it was a great day to be on the water.
The World Sailing 2021-2024 rules shall apply.
Any boat from NSC is eligible to participate. Boats may sail with flying sails (aka PHRF) or without (aka JAM).
Boats may start any time between 1200 and 1205 EDT. The start line will be between yellow mark P (45.364°, -75.821°) to the North, and a point 100 m to the SSE of P Mark, in line with the Camp Fortune Tower. The photo shown below was taken from the port end of the start line. I.e. boats must pass on the south side of P mark, and will generally want to pass close to P Mark. Boats shall record their start time at the moment they are aligned with P Mark and the Camp Fortune Tower, as shown in the photo below.
Boats shall start at P Mark, leaving it to starboard as outlined above; round the yellow mark approximately 350 m Southeast of Pinhey’s Point (at 45.440°, -75.947°) to port; and finish at P Mark, leaving it to port. Boats shall record their finish time at the moment they are aligned with P Mark and the Camp Fortune Tower.
