TYC Sailing Instructions 2018                                                                                             11
13 STARTING PROCEDURE
       13.1 All races shall be started by using the starting system as per Rule 26 of YA Racing Rules of Sailing 2017
            -2020. The procedure is outlined in Appendix III of these sailing instructions. If three or more Multi-
            hull or Cruising Division Yachts intend to start the race on the day, there will be a separate start for
            each division (Racing, Cruising and Multi-hull). In the event of the start boat being unavailable, a gate
            start will be conducted under the direction of the Race Director.

       13.2 Standard starting line: The standard starting line shall be an imaginary line between the signal mast
            on the committee vessel displaying the TYC burgee and a TYC buoy set at approximately 90 degrees to
            the direction of the first mark. For buoy and round Magnetic Island events the direction of rounding
            the marks or island respectively will be indicated by the committee vessel displaying either a green
            (starboard rounding) or a red (port rounding) flag prior to and during the start sequence.

       13.3 Gate starting line: At the discretion of the Race Director, the starter may use a gate start. The rabbit’s
            boat name and/or sail number for the race shall be designated on the white board at the club. This
            boat will be the rabbit for all races on the day unless otherwise instructed by the Race Director/Officer
            of the Day. The rabbit will do a count down over the radio for the 5 minute signal, the 4 minute signal
            and may do the 1 minute signal. Within 20 seconds of the starting signal, the rabbit shall round behind
            the starting line pin end mark on a close-hauled port tack course and raise the ‘Y’ flag or make a sound
            signal. The other boats shall start on starboard tack between the transom of the rabbit and the starting
            mark, after the starting signal. All boats starting must keep clear of the rabbit. Any boat failing to do
            so shall be scored DSQ for that race and any subsequent re-starts. After 2-4 minutes the rabbit will
            lower the ‘Y’ flag or make a sound signal, this releases the rabbit that is then free to tack.

       13.4 An inner limit mark (barging buoy) may be laid, in which case vessels are required to pass the inner
            limit mark to starboard. Such an inner limit mark might not be positioned exactly on the start line.
            Yachts will start in accordance with the definition of "starting" contained in the Rules.

       13.5 Before actually starting, all competing yachts must notify the starter of their intention to start, the
            division entered and the number of persons aboard for that race by calling the starter on VHF channel
            77 (before the five minute warning signal) and be acknowledged by the starter. Any yacht not
            complying with this requirement may be given a scoring penalty calculated as stated in Rule 44.3(c).

       13.6 For pursuit starts, yachts will start at times published on the official notice board and may be signalled
            by start boat.

       13.7 A boat starting later than 30 minutes after her starting signal will be scored DNS unless contact has
            been made with the officer of the day prior to the starting signal.

       13.8 Boats whose warning signal has not been made shall avoid the starting area.

       13.9 The start area for Races started away from Townsville will also be designated as ‘S’ in the course.

     14 RECALLS
       14.1 Individual recalls will be signalled in accordance with Rule 29.1.

       14.2 General recalls will be signalled in accordance with Rule 29.2. The warning signal for a new start shall
            be made 1 minute after the 1st substitute is removed (one sound).

       14.3 14.3 For both general and individual recalls, the starter may notify offending yachts on VHF Channel
            77, however the onus is on the skipper to ensure he starts correctly and the absence of a radio recall
            for any yacht will not prevent a yacht from being scored as a premature starter.




TYC Sailing Instructions 2018                                                                                        12
15 CHANGE OF COURSE AFTER THE START
       15.1 To change the position of the next mark, the race committee will lay a new mark (or move the finishing
            line) and remove the original mark as soon as practicable. Any mark to be rounded after rounding the
            new mark may be relocated to maintain the original course configuration. When, in a subsequent
            change, a new mark is replaced, it will be replaced by an original mark.

       15.2 15.2 A change of course will be signalled before the leading boat has begun the leg, although the new
            mark may not yet be in position. The change will be signalled by an official boat or a buoy displaying
            code flag "C" and the approximate compass bearing to the new mark, and will be situated near the
            mark beginning the leg being changed. A repetitive sound signal may be made if practical (note this
            alters the provisions of the Rules).

     16 SHORTENED COURSE
       16.1 The starter may shorten any course at a rounding mark, or at any point of the course for around
            Magnetic Island and Offshore races, by displaying Code Flag "S" and making two sound signals. An
            announcement may be made on VHF Channel 77. The starter will also display the "on station" blue
            finish signal. Yachts will finish between the rounding mark and the finish boat in accordance with the
            definition of "finishing" in the Rules.

     17 THE FINISH
       17.1 In all races having a designated finish at X when the finish boat is in attendance the finish line will be
            between the signal mast of the finish boat and a TYC buoy. When the finish boat is not in attendance,
            yachts must take their own finish time when they cross the imaginary line between either the TYC
            Buoy or within 100m west of the transit line between green outer channel marker and the red outer
            channel marker of the Breakwater Marina. Where a yacht has taken its own finish time, it will place a
            declaration as to its own finish time in the nomination box within twelve (12) hours of finishing.

       17.2 For all buoy courses the finish line will be between the signal staff on the race committee boat and a
            TYC buoy. Yachts will finish in accordance with the definition of "finishing" contained in rule 11.1.

       17.3 Competitors should confirm their finish time with the finish boat. When finishing at night, crews shall
            illuminate the yacht’s sail number with a torch while crossing the finishing line. When finishing at
            night, yachts shall call the finish boat on VHF Channel 77 when approximately one mile from the finish
            line. Similarly, when crossing the finishing line, yachts shall again call the finish boat and identify
            themselves as the yacht crosses the line. If the yacht is close astern or just ahead of another yacht,
            this information should be included in the message to the finish boat. The finish boat will monitor VHF
            Channels 77 and 16. Yachts finishing should attempt to call the finish boat on VHF Channel 77 first
            before using Channel 16.

     18 PENALTY SYSTEM
       18.1 For all Buoy, Fixed Mark, Lady Skippers and Magnetic Island races, rule 44.1 is changed so that the
            720-degree penalty turn is replaced by a 360-degree penalty.

       18.2 For all Offshore races rule 44.1 shall apply.

       18.3 18.3 A boat that has taken a penalty or retired under rule 31 or 44.1 shall advise the committee vessel,
            the race director or the officer of the day within the protest time limit.

       18.4 As provided in rule 67, the protest committee may, without a hearing penalise a boat that has broken
            rule 42.




TYC Sailing Instructions 2018                                                                                        13
19 TIME LIMIT
       19.1 The time limit for Buoy, Magnetic, Fixed Mark, and Lady Skipper’s courses will be the nautical sunset
            on the day of the race. This excludes Saturday Magnetic Island races, when it will be 2100 hrs. The
            time limit for Category 5 Offshore Races will be 18 hours after the start time. The time limit for
            Category 5+ Offshore races shall be as stated in the sailing instructions for that Race (if issued). If no
            sailing instructions issued, time limit shall for a Cat 5+ shall be 28 hours after the start time.

       19.2 At the expiry of the time limit, the finish boat will signal the expiry of the time limit by raising the
            appropriate class flag and making three sound signals and signalling all participating boats individually
            on VHF Channel 77. If no yacht finishes within the time limit for the race the race may be abandoned
            or resailed at a later date.

     20 PROTESTS
       20.1 Protests must be lodged in writing and in accordance with Rule 61 and handed to the officer of the

21.2 Any yacht that does not compete in a race shall receive a score of the number of yachts started in that
           race plus two (2).
     22 RESULTS
       22.1 Every effort will be made by the race committee to calculate race results for inshore races and display
            the results on the official notice board at the clubhouse as soon as reasonably practicable after the
            race.

       22.2 Every boat shall provide a start crew and be scored first place for that race. Once start boat crew
            requirements have been met, that yacht may choose to race for the day but will forfeit the first place
            and accept the place achieved on the day.

     23 SAFETY
       23.1 All yachts shall comply with MSQ and YA Special Regulations Part 1 for the category of race they intend
            to compete in.

       23.2 Owners of all registered yachts shall complete and sign the appropriate Australian Sailing Special
            Regulations Equipment Compliance Form before competing in any events in the program. The Special
            Regulations Equipment Compliance Form need only be delivered once prior to the first race
            undertaken by the yacht. A copy should at all times be kept on the yacht. Inspections will be carried
            out in accordance with Rule 2.02 of the Special Safety Regulations. Visiting yachts will be required to
            comply with these requirements.

       23.3 All competing yachts shall comply with Australian Sailing Special Regulations Part 1 Category 5 for all
            Round Magnetic Island races, Fixed Mark, Buoy Course and Lady Skippers.

       23.4 All competing yachts shall comply with Australian Sailing Special Regulations Part 1 Category 5,
            Category 5+ Offshore races and Maritime Safety Queensland Requirements.

       23.5 In all races excluding Category 5+ Offshore Races, a waterproof handheld VHF radio capable of
            transmitting and receiving on Channels 16, 22, 67 and 77 is a suitable replacement for fixed mount
            radio.

       23.6 The committee may conduct races in a strong wind warning. They will, however, cancel should a gale
            warning be imminent or forecast. Owners should check their insurance coverage under these
            circumstances before and during the race. Competitors are reminded of the fundamental rule 4
            (decisions to race) and the owner’s responsibility in paragraph 26 of these Instructions.

       23.7 No part of any anchor may project forward of the bow at any time whilst racing.

       23.8 Any incident causing damage or serious injury to persons or vessels requires an Incident Report to be
            completed and submitted to the Officer of the Day and MSQ as soon as possible after racing has
            finished. See appendix V for report template.

       23.9 Any contact with “Aids to Navigation” must be reported to MSQ.

       23.10 Boat Beacon must be used for all Offshore races and Magnetic Island races.

       23.11 It is strongly recommended that a lifejacket be worn by each member of the crew at times such as,
             but not limited to:
             (a) Between sunset and sunrise
             (b) When alone on deck
             (c)     When the true wind speed is 25 knots or above
             (d) When visibility is less than 1 nautical mile.

       23.12 A lifejacket complying with AS4758-2015 (minimum Level 50) or AS1512-1996 Type 1 or Type 2, or
             equivalent or more stringent overseas standard. On a boat without lifelines complying with 3.12, a
             lifejacket complying with 5.01.1(i), shall be worn by each member of the crew while on deck.

TYC Sailing Instructions 2018                                                                                     15
24 RADIO SCHEDULES
       24.1 For the Offshore races, a VHF radio schedule will be conducted. The Officer of the Day will nominate
            the vessel/person/authority to which schedule reports are to be made (Race Control). Race Control
            will call all yachts on Channel 77 at the times listed below. Yachts shall be called in alphabetical order.
            Each yacht should call Race Control for a radio check to attempt to eradicate problems in
            communication before they arise. Call times will be:

               Category 5 Offshore and Category 5+ Offshore
               1603 hours;
               2003 hours;
               0003hours;
               0403 hours;
               0803 hours; and so on at four (4) hourly intervals until the race finishes.

       24.2 Competitors are reminded to be brief and specific in their reports. The information required is the
            name of the yacht, the position and relevant time.

       24.3 Yachts deriving their position from GPS should advise that the position reported was by a GPS fix.
            Yachts not using GPS may (if they wish) give their position as a distance and bearing to (not from) a
            major land feature or navigation beacon (e.g. yacht “Petal” Cape Cleveland light bearing 140 degrees
            true distance four miles at 1133 hours

       24.4 If a vessel has not confirmed her position during the organised radio sked time on Channel 77 , or has
            been unable to give her position by relaying through another boat, she will call Race Control using
            Repeater Channel 22 thirty (30) minutes after the nominated radio sked time.

       24.5 If a vessel fails to communicate either directly or indirectly via relay for two (2) consecutive skeds
            (including via repeater Channel 22) then:
                (a) At the end of the second missed sked all competing vessels will be asked if they can confirm the
                position of the vessel.

                 (b) If no yacht can confirm their position, the vessel closest to that vessel based on tracker position
                 OR if the tracker is not working, the vessel closest to their calculated present position of the vessel
                 who has missed the skeds, will be asked to try to contact them report back to Race Control via radio
                 or mobile phone within 10 minutes.

                 (c) If there is no response then the vessel will be deemed as being missing.

       24.6 Yachts missing two (2) consecutive schedules may be protested by the Race Committee and may also
            be subject to a Search and Rescue event.

       In this regard, yachts that can hear another competitor attempting unsuccessfully to contact Race Control are
       required to relay the Competitor’s position to Race Control.

       24.7 Retired boats shall continue with the schedules until they confirm with Race Control of their arrival at
            a safe port or haven.

     25 CREW LIMITATIONS
       25.1 For Category 5+ Offshore races the minimum number of adult persons (i.e. over the age of eighteen
            (18) years) on board shall be four (4) except with specific exemption from the Race Director. For
            Category 5 Offshore races the minimum number of adult persons (i.e. over the age of eighteen (18)
            years) on board shall be three (3) except with specific exemption from the Race Director.




TYC Sailing Instructions 2018                                                                                         16
26 OWNER’S RESPONSIBILITY
       26.1 Competitors are reminded of fundamental rules (in Part 1 of the Rules) and the owner's responsibility
            specified in Rule 1.02 of the Special Regulations. The safety of the yacht and her crew is the sole and
            inescapable responsibility of the owner or owner’s representative who must do his/her best to ensure
            the yacht is fully sound, thoroughly seaworthy and manned by an experienced crew who are physically
            fit to face bad weather. He/she must be satisfied as to the soundness of the hull, spars, rigging, sails
            and other gear. He/she must ensure that all safety equipment is properly maintained and stowed and
            that the crew know where it is kept and how it is to be used.

     27 IDENTIFICATION
       27.1 Each yacht’s sail number shall be registered with the TYC Sail numbers shall be displayed at all times.
            Sails with the wrong sail number should not be used. Alternative sail numbers must be registered with
            the race committee.

       27.2 Yachts of the TYC shall fly the TYC Club Burgee prior to and during all races as identification to the
            starter and other competitors.

       27.3 Visiting yachts shall fly their Club Burgee to signify their participation in the event.

       27.4 Yachts not complying may incur scoring penalty of 20% as described in Rule 44.3 of the Rules.

     28 HANDICAPS
       28.1 Performance Based Handicap (P.B.H.) system shall apply i.e. a handicap system based on past
            performance of each yacht. The handicapper will have the right to make any adjustment to any
            handicaps, which the handicapper sees fit.

       28.2 Handicaps may be altered after each point score race using the following method - the first placed
            yacht on handicap will have their handicap increased by 0.15. Thence handicaps are increased
            proportionally upwards to the middle placed yacht. The middle placed yacht’s handicap will not
            change. From the middle to last place the handicaps will be altered proportionally downwards, in a
            similar manner (last boat decreased by 0.15).

       28.3 Yacht owners and/or skippers are reminded of their responsibility to notify the handicapper or the
            measurer immediately of any adjustments to their yachts, sails or rigging or ballast which may alter
            the yacht's performance. This includes the addition or removal of heavy objects such as spare sails
            and anchors and chains. Failure to do so may result in disqualification from the race. If, after a proper
            hearing, the committee is of the opinion that a deliberate attempt has been made to improve the
            boat's performance in breach of the fundamental rules, it may disqualify the owner, skipper, or crew
            members from sailing with the club for a period of time. The measurer or handicapper shall have the
            right to inspect any vessel at any time without notice in order to enforce this rule.

     29 USE OF AUXILIARY POWER
       29.1 Yachts must not motor under auxiliary power after the 5 minute signal, however, if a yacht is running
            late for the start, it may motor after that signal for the purpose of proceeding from its mooring to the
            start line. Before starting, the yacht must shut off its motor and make a 720-degree turn under sail. A
            yacht taking advantage of this concession must satisfy the starter and the race committee that it has
            not obtained any unfair advantage. While making the 720-degree turn the yacht shall keep clear of all
            other boats preparing to start.

     30 YACHTS RETIRING
       30.1 If a yacht abandons the race, the skipper shall be responsible for notifying the finish boat, and or
            Officer of the Day as soon as possible. Failure to do so may result in a penalty.

31 LONE STARTER
       31.1 Subject to any further qualification concerning division or series qualification, where there is only one
            starter in a Division, she shall be entitled to sail the course and thereafter be declared the winner of
            that race subject to complying with all relevant rules.

     32 GARBAGE
       32.1 The disposing of non-biodegradable waste from a competing vessel is not permitted. A successful
            protest based on this rule will result in disqualification of the offending yacht.

     33 DISCLAIMER OF LIABILITY
       33.1 Competitors participate in any Club event entirely at their own risk. See rule 4 Decision to Race. The
            organising authority will not accept any liability for material damage or personal injury or death
            sustained in conjunction with, prior to, during or after the Club event.

     34 INSURANCE
       All racing yachts shall supply a copy of their current racing insurance policy before entering any race. All boats
       competing in any event organised by TYC shall have race cover appropriate to the distance of race you are
       entering and provide at least $10 million of public liability. The insurance policy must be issued by an agency
       or underwriting agent that is licensed to operate in Australia under the Australian Prudential Regulation
       Authority (APRA).

incident has occurred. In the event that the Race Director is unavailable the Handicapper must be notified.

Contact details of the current Race Director and Handicapper are detailed in the current season's sailing
instructions. In the event that these positions are occupied by different persons, an advisory notice will be
posted on the TYC notice board. The completed incident form is to be submitted to one of these officers as
soon as practicable after the Incident.

What is an incident?
The Marine Safety (Domestic Commercial Vessel) National Law Act 2012, Schedule 1 (National Law) defines a

(l) a prescribed incident involving a domestic commercial vessel.

Your responsibilities as Owner or Master (Sections 88 and 89 of Schedule 1 of the National Law)

APPENDIX VI
              TOWNSVILLE YACHT CLUB SAILING CODE OF CONDUCT
This code of conduct is to be read in conjunction with and in addition to the Townsville Yacht Club (TYC)
Participation Rules, Safety Declaration, release and Indemnity and Acceptance of conditions for any event.

Behaviour of Skipper, Crew and Guests

It is the responsibility of all Skippers to ensure that they, their crew and their guests conform to this Code of
Conduct at all times during their participation in any TYC event.
All participants in TYC events shall conform to the high standards of social behaviour which are customary
and traditional at sailing events.

The following behaviour is considered inappropriate and will not be permitted during TYC events:
     •     Participation in any illegal activity
     •     Swearing, abusive language or aggressive behaviour towards another participant or official
     •     Excessive noise which may result in the disturbance of other participants, other marine users or
           members of the public
     •     The display of any material, signage and/or wearing of any article of clothing bearing offensive,
           profane, suggestive or improper words or designs.
     •     Dangerous operation of a vessel
     •     Unsportsmanlike behaviour

Responsible Service of Alcohol

A legal alcohol limit applies to all skippers on the water.
It is the responsibility of the skipper to maintain responsible service of alcohol on board his/her vessel and to
keep crew and guest’s alcohol levels at a safe and responsible level both on and off the water.

Environmental Protection

The environmental protection of our harbour and waterways is of vital concern to the TYC and littering or
discharge of waste material from a vessel is strictly forbidden.

Enforcement

Complaints and/or reports associated with this Code of Conduct may be referred to the Officer of the Day for
consideration and, if applicable, disciplinary action.
