2015 Racing Calendar

Racing Calendar 2015

Revised Friday, 26 December 2014

Key:

Format: NFS No Flying Sails
Format: RH Reverse Handicap
Format: SH Single-handed
Note: KC Kibble Cup race
Note: IOM International One Metre event
Note: VIRS Vancouver Island Racing Series event

The racing events for 2015 have been divided up into three series of races that are counted toward the Total Points. Other races are “just for fun”. Actually, all races are just for fun. Some just don’t have points associated with them.

Series A (Spring) has 7 races. Series B (Summer) has 17 events, but many of them are combined into a single result, which results in 7 races. Series C only has 5 points races, which leaves room for re-running other abandoned races or initiating some new racing ideas.

Each series has two throw outs. New for 2015, the Kibble Cup 5-race series now has one throw out.
