Star Race 2 Abandonment -

Sailors-

Due to a very persistant and unforeseen wind shift, the final two legs of the first race today met the definition in the Star Class Race Management Policies and Procedures guide section 16.1, which states in part, "if adjustments fail to correct the course and result in two legs that do not require tacking or jibing, the race should be abandoned." After consulting with Class Officers, due to that reason and many other errors on the Committee's part, the Race Committee's decision to abandon the race was made.

The scorers will take care of the results, and race 2 of the regatta will be resailed as the first race on Thursday, March 9, 2023.

Star Bacardi Cup SI Amendment 2 -

Star Sailors-

Attached please find the Sailing Instructions Amendment 2, changing the schedule for Wednesday, March 8, 2023 and to add the Competitor Breifing schedule.

As we will attempt two races tomorrow, in the interests of time and safety will will most likely be implementing the Vertical Offset windward mark configuration in the slightly shorter races we will use.

The Amendment is attached. We look forward to seeing you in the morning and having some more good racing.
