White Sail Handicaps

The circumstances where a White Sail, No-Spinnaker handicap can be applied are:

When a White Sail Fleet is planned and announced in advance. Boats electing to sail in this fleet should declare to the OD in advance on the day.

The events where White Sail fleets are planned are

1) Fahan, Rathmullan, Buncrana regattas,

In the event that a White Sail fleet is intended but there are not three or more boats taking part, then a boat which has declared White Sails will sail in Club fleet with a No-Spinnaker Handicap.
