  Sail number dodgers
Posted by Guy OBeirne on Wed Apr 17, 20:08 [3749-12314]
I understand sail number dodgers need to be displayed for IRC yachts approaching the finish and for two minutes after. Is one dodger sufficient providing it is on the side of the finishing committee? Please also confirm that they are not required for the start.

Hello Guy,

Yes I can confirm that one dodger is enough, shown on the same side as the committee boat / finishing station.

They make a huge difference to our ability to get all the sail numbers as boats finish, if there is any sort of big pack of boats all finishing at the same time.

They are not required at the start.

Best regards,

PS, sorry for the delay in replying.
