In addition to the amendments outlined below, the Class Flag will be replaced with a starting board on the Race Committee boat.
NoR/SI amendments 5 June 2015:
14.4 Races will be started using the following signals. This changes RRS 26 and Race Signals.
|Minutes before starting signal||Visual signal||Sound signal||Means|
|5||White or Black flag with number 5||One||Warning Signal|
|3||Blue flag with number 3||One||Preparatory Signal|
|2||Red flag with number 2||One||Two Minutes|
|1||Yellow flag with number 1||One long||One Minute|
|0||Green flag||One||Start signal|
14.5 When the warning signal is a white flag, no part of a boat's hull, crew or equipment shall be in the triangle formed by the ends of the starting line and the first mark during the last minute before her starting signal. If a boat breaks this rule and is identified, she shall be disqualified without a hearing but not if the race is restarted or re-sailed. This changes RRS 26, 63.1 and A5. RRS 29.1 Individual recall does not apply. The scoring abbreviation under this rule is OCS. This changes A11 Scoring Abbreviations.
14.6 When the warning signal is a black flag, RRS 30.3 shall apply.
14.7 To alert boats that a race or sequence of races will begin soon, the orange starting line flag will be displayed with one sound at least five minutes before a preparatory signal is made.
