Questions from Competitors;
 

Vicky,
In response to the two e mails from Stuart Duffin I advise as follows.
VHF 72 is not used to give the course.
SI 2.4 states "The following communications may be made to Competitors by the RC on VHF 5. Competitors may communicate with the RC on VHF 72".
It then goes on to list a number of communication from the RC including courses.
Attachment A 6.1 states "Courses will be broadcast on VHF 5".
 
The 2/3 requirement for crew or weight is using the lower full number in line with IRC.
 
Regards
John (PRO)

Hi Vicky,
The SI’s state VHF 72 and VHF 5 will be used to give the course. Surely, we need all communication on one channel.
Sorry to bother you again.  The crew limits says 2/3 IRC crew limit.  Is this rounded up or down.  i.e my limit is 7 can I sail with 4 or 5?
Regards
Stuart
