VRC Remembrance Day Pursuit Race
Saturday, November 11th, 2018
Two Minutes of Silence: 11:00 a.m.
Scheduled Warning Signal: 11:05 a.m.

Join us for the 2018 VRC Remembrance Day Pursuit Race.  This tradition, started by FCYC, and carried on by VRC is in remembrance for the men and women who have served, and continue to serve our country during times of war, conflict and peace.

There will be two minutes of silence observed at 11:00 a.m. including all motors off in the fleet.  The starting sequence will begin at 11:05 a.m.  The format for the race is different from any other VRC event and an enjoyable change.  A start schedule with boats starting according to their PHRF rating will be created and posted to the website and in the Sailing Instructions.  Slower boats will start first, with the faster boats starting later.  Potentially the entire fleet could end up finishing together at the same time.

All boats with a valid PHRF certificate, proof of insurance and meeting all other requirements in the Sailing Instructions, are invited to participate.  Boats without a PHRF certificate may ask for a “club rating” from the race officer.

Registration is FREE! All boats must register by completing the form below to partake in the event. No registrations will be accepted after 7:00 p.m. on Saturday, November 10th. Boats that have not registered will not be scored.

This event is part of the Polar Bear series in 2018.  Polar Bear race day #2 falls on Remembrance Day this year, so all boats registered for the Polar Bear Series will be entered automatically to participate. The Remembrance Day race event will be scored as a single fleet and will also be incorporated into the Polar Bear Series results scored by division, with boats’ relative finish position used.

Notice of Race: coming soon
