Each event consists of 4 races, one loop, two M Courses and a handicapped race with the slower finishing boats starting with a time advantage in the fourth and final race of the day.
Note: Club 500 racing whilst not a contact sport does involve a little 'bumping and banging' so we highly recommend your boat has additional floation aids fitted.
Club 500 Racing Course Detail
The first race of each event is a simple loop (clockwise or anti clockwise) which gives everyone to get a feel for racing and get your eye in.
Following the traditional 'M' course in a clockwise direction.
The third race of each meeting is an anti-clockwise 'M' with the finisihing line between the starting gates and the centre of the course.

Points are allocated based on the number of entries, with one point awarded per boat that entered an event e.g. 1st place would earn 6 points if six boats entered. A single points is allocated for not finishing a race, zero points for not starting the event, and if you are disqualified minus 1.
