This is just a notification that the Sailing Instructions have been amended.  If you participated in the first Nippert race of this year, and attended the dirt up, there was discussion about this.  The amendment addresses the short finish procedure and has been highlighted in the SIs. The short finish will be used to score each fleet in which the first place boat does not reach the short finish mark by the pre-determined time.  Also, for at least the last year we have been using a throw out in our series.  I have amended the SIs to make this legal.  We will be throwing out 20% of the scored races (rounded DOWN to the nearest whole number).  This way if you can not make it out for one race it is not necessarily the end of your series.  These changes are effective immediately.  If there are any questions please contact me.
