HISC Centenary Race
The Centenary Race will take place at 11.00 on Sunday 29th August and will be different to anything we have ever previously run – so please take note and please read the NOR and Sailing Instructions available here.
Although a serious race, it will be fun and inclusive, and to be successful will require members to take part in the spirit in which it is intended.
Entry to the race is for all members in cruisers, keelboats or dinghies with boats with a HISC Handicap of 1450 or lower.
Entry WILL NOT BE TAKEN ON THE DAY to allow for the preparatory administration; entry will ONLY be by Sailevent and will close at 23.59 on Wednesday 25 August.
The brief description given here is not a substitute for reading the Notice of Race or Sailing Instructions!
The start will be in fleets from multiple lines, all starting at the same time, and heading out into Hayling Bay; each fleet will sail a different course of a nominal measured distance, with the intention that boats will finish on the club line in a relatively tight window.
All results will be amalgamated to identify a single winner of the Centenary Trophy.
Which classes will sail in which fleet, and the courses to be sailed will be published on Thursday 26 August on the event noticeboard (as defined in SI 5.1(c)).
Note that the course may be amended up to 60 minutes before the scheduled start time.
If the weather is unkind, we will try to run a more conventional, but still memorable, race in the harbour.

Looking forward to seeing you for a memorable and challenging race, worthy of the title of Centenary Race!
