VHF radio will be the primary means used by the Race Committee (RC) for communicating with the fleet about activity on the course e.g., delays, recalls, weather issues, etc. For recalls, following the display of the Individual Recall flag, the RC will attempt to announce by VHR radio the sail numbers of all boats identified as being OCS. (This changes RRS 29.1). Such announcement is a courtesy and failure by the RC to make the announcement, or of the boats to hear or understand it shall not constitute grounds for redress.
