Knickertwister June 15

June 15 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Knickertwisters (KT)

Short races, typically start an hour and a half before high tide, lasting two hours or less. All classes race the same course at the same time including dinghies. The handicap system used is NHC that penalises the winners to give the less experienced a better chance of winning. Knickertwisters run either on weekday evenings or late Saturday afternoons. Courses are short – usually around the buoys marking the entrance into the river.  Spinnakers cannot be used.  The final Handicap Time Correction Factor (TCF) is used to create the starting handicap for the second Summer Knickertwister series.

Time stated is the Race Start time, please arrive in plenty of time to prepare your boat.
