- 9.30am – muster in the Basin and keep a listening watch on VHF Ch 77.
- 10.00am – the lead boat will use VHF Ch 77 to make a radio broadcast announcing the activity instructions and notifying when they commence the sail past. This will be accompanied by repeated horn blasts and they will slowly begin following the mapped course.
- The lead boat will proceed at 4 knots. Participating vessels are requested to form a single file, following the lead boat.
- The course will take vessels up to the NCYC clubhouse before transiting along the Honeysuckle waterfront and out toward Nobbys.
- Vessels will be blessed as they pass Honeysuckle Hotel.
*We anticipate that boats intending to race will have ample time to return to the dock to ‘undress’ their boat and collect ‘Race Crew’ if required.
