Sailing Instructions & Race Calendar

This page will eventually become the “SI” page in 2019.

Expect the SIs to be published 1-2 weeks before the first race. In the meantime, check out the NSC Google Calendar for scheduled events, or last year’s Sailing Instructions.

Pre-season text:

During Season text:
The 2018 Sailing Instructions & Race Calendar are now available as a pdf. See below for a list of the major changes. Page 2 of the SIs shows the Series calendar, and pages 3 & 4 show the Weekend and Special Events calendar, but this information is also available on the NSC Google Calendar.

The NSC SIs have been coordinated, and are aligned, with the BYC SIs, both of which address our Interclub racing program.

For reference, older copies of the SIs are available – see the 2018, 2017, 2016, 2015, 2014 and 2013 versions, or the pdf versions for 2005-2013 are available in Box.

Notices to Competitors / Sailing Instruction Amendments:

  • Amendment #1, 2019-XX-XX: nothing yet …

Main changes made to the SIs for 2019:

  • As is customary, the start order of the Sharks and Tanzers switches; in 2019, the Sharks start ahead of the Tanzers. See Part E, 1.1.
  • The calendar has been updated, though there is relatively little shuffling of events this year.

In addition to reading the Sailing Instructions, every racer should obtain and read the 2017-2020 version of the World Sailing Racing Rules of Sailing, and the Sail Canada Prescriptions. These “Rule Books” are available for purchase at the club office.

If you have changes you would like to propose for next year, feel free to discuss these with, or e-mail them to, Hugh Morrin and/or Dominic Goodwill.
