Sunday the 5th of May 2013
Thank you for
entering Liverpool's BDA National League Race. Amathus will be hosting
this event and we hope that you will all have a good day of racing.
Should you wish any help or advice during the day please feel free
to ask any Amathus Club member.
We will be using
the Queen’s Dock Watersports centre, which provides a reasonable
number of toilets and shower facilities.
and hot drinks will be available from the centre but the are a large
number of shops and restaurants in the Albert Dock shopping area
which is only a short distance from the race course.
To add an extra
element of variety, we will be running a series of 250m races to
start the day. These will follow a slightly different plan to the
standard system in that there will only be two rounds of races.
The main 500m
races will follow the 200’s running over a different course. Be
aware that this is a deep saltwater docklands course and that the
water is of good quality
The actual course
details will be displayed at race control and we advise that your
helms are made aware of the course plan.
There will be
tethered starts on the 500m course, from fixed buoys at the beginning
of each lane if the conditions require it. The races will be three
boat races to an indicated finish point on the dock walls. All races
will be covered by a video camera.
will be available for any participants that require them, these
will need to be requested from the boat marshals.
Details of how

personally to the boat loading area as this is on a different car
park from the centre.
