There seems to be some unanswered questions about the Kerr Lake Kup. So please see the responses below.
It is the responsibility of the captain to recruit the crew.
The captain must be present on the boat, but he does not have to be the helmsman. The captain is alone responsible for the safety of his/her crew and boat.
Trophies will be handed out in the following weeks with inscriptions. I plan to have really nice ones, perhaps as perpetual trophies.
A minimum of at least 3 knots and a maximum of no more 20 knots sustained for 15 minutes is required to start the race. Brief lulls or gusts are not be counted. If wind conditions are not met by the starting time window, the race will be rescheduled.
10:30. All challenges and acceptances should be made known by the end of the skippers' meeting. The format is match racing, which I will discuss at the skipper's meeting.
Between 12:00 and 2:00 PM depending on the wind.
See ya on the 27th.
