NOTICE ON BEHALF OF RACE COMMITTEE FOR SANDHOPPER NATIONALS 2016 CREW SUBSTITUTIONS

  1. Regarding crew substitutions, the Race Committee is aware that in some cases crew may not be available on all three days due to work commitments. At the same time we are conscious of the risk of suspicion that crew is varied to suit weather conditions.
  1. For these reasons we are giving notice that there will be a cut-off date for substitution requests due to non-availability of crew. Such requests must be received no later than noon on Friday 12th August. This date is chosen to give helms time to confirm their crewing arrangements, whilst being far enough ahead that the weather cannot be reliably predicted.
  1. Of course the default arrangement should be that the same crew is used throughout the meeting, but if you know you will have to substitute due to non-availability a request should be submitted to the Race Officer, alanrwillis@aol.com no later than noon on Friday 12th August. Please state the reason the substitution is needed and the names of crew.
  1. Substitutions requested after this cut-off will be dealt with in the normal way, taking due account of the reasons.

If you have any questions regarding the event please contact Mark Robinson on 07957 801 099 or mark.robinson3@vodafone.com
