    Is there a PDF distribution of the SER document specific to the TransPac to which Bob and Dave referred during the seminar?

    I found this from USA sailing:

    https://www.ussailing.org/wp-content...Categories.pdf

    But I am curious if there are other guidelines specific to the race (i.e. 21 gallons of water per person).

    Thank you in advance.

    See here, Tom: https://www.jibeset.net/show.php?RR=...DOC=X0&TYP=pdf

    These were distributed at the meeting. Brian Boschma, the Race Kahuna, said that these requirements will remain the same for 2020. Sorry if that detail was not captured in the video.The 2018 Race Documents will probably remain the same, with "2020" inserted at the top of each page :-)

    This is an invitation and reminder to join us at the second SSS seminar in preparation for the SHTP. The topic is power requirements, to be presented by Chris Case, an engineer and SHTP veteran from 2018.

    George Lythcott and Joe Balderamma, both Express 27 sailors and recent veterans of the SHTP, will discuss small boat issues: how to stay warm, fed and safe aboard your boat. The Seminar will be held at Oakland Yacht Club Wednesday night at 7:30 pm in the downstairs Regatta Room. We hope to see you there.

    I am working on my sail plan for the SHTP. There have been some non-standard PHRF configurations mentioned at the seminars. What document modifies or controls the sails used in the SHTP?

    The only mention of sail modifications is in the Race Rules and Conditions:

    "One or more spinnaker poles or whisker poles may be used to pole out headsails. The length of the whisker poles may not exceed the LP of the largest rated headsail, and may not be used for setting the spinnaker. [This modifies RRS 50.2]"

    Otherwise, sails used in the SHTP must comply with the boat's PHRF certificate. If the boat is rated with a one-design rating, its sails would also need to comply with the OD class rules.

    What "non-standard PHRF configurations" are you hearing about?

    Yes, non-standard would be twin headsails and poles..... both have been allowed by the SHTP as long as I can remember. "Twins" is the term that I've always heard.

    Mainly the use of two headsails. My recollection was that you are only allowed to have two head sails hoisted at the same time temporarily while changing from one jib to the other jib. I may be wrong on that point and not sure I could quickly find it. I saw the rule change on poles but have not seen anything on "twins", which makes me think there may be a SSS rule or document I have over looked.
