Race Course

The race course will be based on what can be setup at the event. Typical these will be based on a figure eight or a downwind M type course. Prior to each race a race briefing will held.


Divisions

Slalom – dedicated slalom board and/or 4 cam race based sail 

FreeRace – dedicated free race board and/or 3 cam or less sail 

Freeride – any non-Race orientated board, with a non-camed sailEquipment

If you would like to join in the fun and you don’t have the gear mention in the divisions list there is number of ways to get involved. These are;

Use a long board (Inc. Wally), SUP, beginner board and any windsurfer 


Rules

The entrant must be registered with AWA (e.g. Windsurfing Victoria member); if not, WV membership can be obtained at each event during sign in.

WV entrants are encouraged to present their WV membership card when registering for each event.

All series entrants will receive a WV Sail Sticker. 

The entrant must sign an entry form for each round and pay any entry fees required by the host club if not a member of that yacht or sailing club (e.g. $10). 

The entrant must sign in and out of each race as per the host yachting/sailing club requirements. 

The entrant must nominate which division they will be entering via the sign in/out register. 

An entrant can use different division equipment per race, but only points for the

division the entrant sails in will be accumulated. Overall points will still accumulate

regardless. 

The entrant must wear a suitable PFD as per water authorities’ guidelines and rules. 

The entrant must show their registered national sail number on the sail by any means possible. Tape will be available at the event. 

All standard sailing racing rules apply (e.g. starboard, buoy room, etc.)

Costs

The only costs will be;

if there is a cost to enter the major event 

if the event is being held at a yacht/sailing club and there is a required fee for non-yacht/sailing club members (e.g. $10/day) to be paid to the club

Results

How race results will be calculated will be based on placing and the number entrants for the season. An example of how the result will calculated is shown below.

1st Place = 1 point 

2nd Place = 2 points 

Did not Finish (DNF) = number series entrants 

Did not Start (DNS) = number of series entrants + 1

As the series will have number of events and races, at end of the series a set number of race results will be removed (e.g. worst results).

In addition all race results will contribute to the Victorian Windsurfer of the year award.

Awards

During the WV End of Season Party all division trophies will be awarded.
