Wednesday Night Racing - Mark Boat Assignments

Every boat (Stars & PRHFs) participating in Wednesday Night Racing is required to assist with the mark boat at least once during the racing season. Bowie Rose has generously volunteered the use of his boat as mark boat. The boat assigned mark boat duty must provide at least 1 able-bodied crew to assist on their assigned week.

Specifically, the crew needs to be able to:

  • Arrive at MRYC no later than 5PM or sooner and meet with Bowie Rose. His boat is docked next to Isabel's Bar in the basin.
  • Locate 2 orange tet marks and 2 anchors in the equipment shed. Make sure you take the anchors with enough line. The key is located in Sail Committee mailbox in the MRYC Office. Please put the key back.
  • Bowie has a 12 volt vacuum to inflate the marks on the mark boat.
  • Assist with departure from the dock (line handling and fending off).
  • Operate a VHF to communicate with the Race Committee. Race Committee will provide instructions on where to place mark.
  • Communicate with Bowie.
  • Drop marks & retrieve at Race Committee's direction.
  • Leeward mark is to be set directly downwind of windward mark. Follow race committee instructions.
  • Be attentive to RC communication throughout the race.

Sometimes, the mark boat will have to take finishes if a race gets shortened. RC will provide all necessary equipment to do so.

The mark boat is expected to be checking in with the RC ON THE RIVER no LATER than 5:30PM to allow sufficient time to set marks.

For PHRF – you may staff the mark boat with one of your own crew or anyone else – so long as they meet the criteria listed above. If staffing the mark boat means you cannot sail your boat, you will receive an average of all your races for the season for the race you miss. If your boat sails anyway, there is no scoring adjustment.

If you need to switch nights, please work it out with an other boat and then send an email to either support@starclassd2.org or Mariana Lesher.
