Boats will not be penalized for crossing the line during maneuvers prior to the designated start time, but must cross to the course side of the line at or after the designated time of the race. Boats should communicate with one another in order to synchronize to GPS time. One boat can be a designated timekeeper, signaling all that the race has begun. You must record your own time, announce your time on VHF 68 and report your time to the club scorer (email preferred) within 24 hours.
  13. For the Mattituck Race/Cruise record your finish time at the green can of Roanoke Shoal C "5". You must come within two boat lengths of the buoy, keeping it on your starboard side.
