Finish Times – Long Distance Races

Per the Sailing Instructions, for up-river races, when the Race Committee is not on station at the finish line, boats shall take their own finish time (actual time, hh:mm:ss) when they cross the line. For Time Trials, skippers are also required to record their start times; recording mark roundings is good practice. Skippers are strongly encouraged to record such times by taking photos, as described here.
