2020 – 2021 Polar Bear NOR Amendment #1 Posted


The 2020 – 2021 Polar Bear Series NOR has been amended, as specified in the Amendment #1 document: https://vrcracing.ca/wp-content/uploads/PolarBear_NORA1_2020-2021.pdf

  1. Winter Series dates have been corrected to reflect that they occur in 2021 rather than 2020.
  2. The Polar Bear Race Committee will be presenting the daily results on a Facebook Live Stream following racing. North Sails “door” prizes will be awarded by a draw of recipients selected from Facebook Live attendees present during each Facebook Live event. Results will be posted on this website following the presentation.
  3. 7.1(b)(iii) is reworded to more clearly represent its physical distancing intent: Boats that frequently and aggressively cannot keep their crew at least 2 metres away from other crews while afloat will be requested to stop participating in the series.
  4. Boats are no longer required to collect signed Attachment A pages from each crew member, but they should ensure that crew members understand COVID-related risks and abide by the series safety rules while afloat.

[Not amended, but a refresher: Boats may not bring a protest against another Boat based on any rule in NOR 7.1, as specified in NOR 1.2(d)]
