 Rules
The organizing authority (OA) for this regatta is the MC Sailing Association (MCSA) in cooperation with the Lake Lanier Sailing Club (LLSC).

The races will be governed by the rules defined in The Racing Rules of Sailing (RRS).
  1. The racing area is Lake Lanier.
  2. The sailing instructions will consist of the instructions in RRS Appendix S, Standard Sailing Instructions, and supplementary sailing instructions that will be published here, and be posted on the official notice board located at the club.
  3. Racing rules 30.1, 35, 41, 62.1, 62.2, A2, A4.2 and A11 will be changed.  The changes will appear in full in the sailing instructions. The sailing instructions may also change other racing rules.
  4. Courses to be sailed are all windward leeward courses as shown in the Sailing Instructions.
  5. VHF Radio (72) will be used by the RC to communicate with competitors on the water. Additional instructions regarding radio communication will be included in the SI’s.
  6. Electronic Equipment: Use of electronic timekeeping is permitted. Digital compasses and/or devices, which offer functions not exceeding timing, heading and directional memory, which may include a user programmed reference heading are permitted. Any electronic device shall not provide wind information, boat speed, GPS-related information or compute correlation between time and bearing (such as used to ping the starting line).
  7. Competitors give absolute right and permission for video footage or photographs of themselves or their boat generated during an MCSA event to be published in any media authorized by MCSA for press, editorial or advertising purposes.
  8. Safety Suggestion: MCSA encourages but does not require the use of masthead flotation panels when conditions warrant their use.
