2018 District Championship Results

20180923-005

The 2018 District 11 Championship was held at Severn Sailing Association in conjunction with the Crab Claw Regatta.  27 Standards and 16 Radials took to the waters of Annapolis under overcast skies and good wind out of the North.  5 races were sailed on Saturday and David Grace won 2 of them to lead the Standard Fleet while Kim Couranz also won 2 races to lead the Radial fleet.

Saturday evening a feast of crabs was prepared and all enjoyed.

20180922-022

Sunday saw rainy/misty skies throughout the day and included a little less, but still good wind for sailing.  Another 4 races were sailed and David and Kim both sailed well to solidify their lead on their fleets.

Big thanks to Scott and Dorian for organizing the event and Steve P as PRO and all of the other folks at SSA who made it happen!

Proposed rule change: Proposed rule change: Delete current Rule 22 (a)-(d) shown below in strikethrough text and replace it with new Rule 22 (a)-(e) shown below in RED text.

Add new rule 22:
22. COMPASS, ELECTRONIC EQUIPMENT AND TIMING DEVICES

(b) Timing devices are permitted.
(c) A timing device and electronic compass may be integrated in the same device.
(d) A compass or timing device must not be capable of displaying, delivering, transmitting, receiving, calculating, correlating or storing information about wind speed, wind direction, boat speed or boat position.
(e) Any use of electronic equipment not specifically allowed in the rules is prohibited unless the rules are modified by the sailing instructions.

Delete Old Rule 22:
(a) One compass is permitted mounted on any part of the deck or the cockpit, provided that the hull cavity is not pierced by anything other than the fasteners. Compasses shall not be fitted to inspection ports. Electronic and digital compasses are prohibited (see exception in part d).
