    Default Corinthian Race Update

    The Corinthian NOR and SI documents have been posted on Jibeset.

    There are several COVID-related changes to the race this year:

    1) The traditional start/finish line off the namesake Corinthian Yacht Club is not possible this year due to the closure of the CYC race deck. Instead, the "Corinthian" race will start/finish off the Golden Gate Yacht Club, where there is sufficient space for the race committee to exercise responsible social distancing practices.

    2) We have tried to preserve the spirit of the Corinthian race with the new course consisting of:
    - Start to Blackaller
    - BH to Southhampton Shoals
    - SHS to Little Harding
    - LH to Blossom Rock
    - BR to the Finish

    3) We restricted the registrations, originally to 150 boats. Because several pre-Corinthian SSS members were not able to register during the original window, we opened up a second window to allow these members to participate. The registrations are now closed with 182 boats total.

    Note that we are attempting to separate the singlehanded and doublehanded fleets as much as possible by having the doublehanded boats start first, followed by the singlehanded boats. With 182 boats on the course, we strongly encourage everyone to give room to your fellow sailors, particularly to the SH boats on the course.

    We are also looking for race deck volunteers. ~3 hrs shifts in the morning (8-11) and afternoon (4-7). Send me a DM or an email at: tboussie at gmail dot com if you are available.

    Looking forward to another great race!

    21 boats in my start, all singlehanded, followed by an almost certain pinwheel of death at Blackaller.

    Not excited about this one.

    That's better - thanks for the extra work, Tom and Jim. The solo sporties may over-run the slower DH'ers a bit, but then the boats will spread out on the long run down to Southampton.

    BTW, that long downwind from Blackaller to Southampton in the SSS Corinthian is my favorite leg to sail in any race on the Bay.
