Round the County

Radio reports at the halfway finish lines.

It can be difficult to see the sail numbers a the halfway finishes. The Race Committee will rely on your sail number radio calls as you cross the line. Be brief and understand it is a one-way call. The RC will not answer.

BAD:

"race committee, race committee, race committee, this is Silver Dart"

and then in 10 seconds after RC doesn't answer

"race committee, race committee, race committee, this is Silver Dart"

They don't understand that the RC will not be answering their calls.

GOOD:

"This is Silver Dart sail number 48231 sail number 48231 black hull now crossing the halfway finish".

ALSO:

Don't call in to the halfway finish when you are two minutes out or 5 minutes out. That has no value to anyone and it will only pollute the airwaves.

Please be sure that your boat's radio operator has been informed.
