 PART 1 – GENERAL

 1.    ORGANIZING AUTHORITY

 Black Sea Sailing Association in association with C.S. Black Sea Competition, Clubul Nautic Roman and Fapt Sailing Club is inviting you to take part in the CALLATIS REGATTA (28th-30th of August) which will take place in Marina Eforie. This Regatta is part of Romania Cup 2015 and marks the end of the 4th edition of the traditional Black Sea Sailing Trophy.

 2.    RULES

 2.1.    Regatta will be governed by the rules as defined in the RRS.

 2.2.    The following rules will also apply:

 a)    IMS Rule

 b)    ORC Rating System Rule.

 c)    ISAF offshore special regulation for category 5.

 d)    The International Regulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea (IRPCAS) will replace the rules of Part 2 of RRS from the actual sunset to the actual sunrise.

 2.3    No national authority prescription will apply.

2.4    Automatic, mechanical and wind vane devices for steering shall be prohibited.

 2.5    To alert boats that a race or sequence of races will begin soon, the ORANGE starting line flag   will be displayed with one sound at least five minutes before a warning signal is made.

 2.6    In case of a triple-number scoring method, before the warning signal of each race the RC will be display one of the following flags and/or may display on a board {L, M, H} to indicate the provisional scoring method:

 Wind    Flag    Notice on board

 Light    Numeral one          L

 Medium    Numeral two         M

 High    Numeral three       H

 If there is a substantial change in wind speed during the race, the RC may decide to use a different time correction. This will be indicated by displaying the appropriate board on the finishing vessel. Any decision by the race committee in connection with the application of the Triple Number System will be no ground for redress. This changes RRS 62.1(a).

 2.7    If Flag U   has been displayed as the preparatory signal, no part of a boat’s hull, crew or equipment shall be in the triangle formed by the ends of the Starting line and the first mark during the last minute before her starting signal. If a boat breaks this rule and is identified she shall be disqualified without a hearing but not if the race is restarted or re-sailed or postponed or abandoned before the starting signal. This changes RRS 26 and A5. When flag U is used as the preparatory signal, RRS 29.1 does not apply. The scoring abbreviation for a flag U penalty is UFD. This changes RRS A11.

 2.8    If Flag F   is displayed (no sounds) at any mark, that mark shall be left on the required side and boats shall then proceed directly to the FINISH, leaving out any further marks of the course.

 3.    CLASSES [NP]

 The division of the boats will be ORC-A (RACER) and ORC-B (CRUISER).

 4.    NOTICES TO COMPETITORS

 Notices to competitors will be posted on the official notice board located at Marina Eforie.

 5.    CHANGES TO SAILING INSTRUCTIONS

Any change to the sailing instructions will be posted before 09.00 on the day it will take effect, except that any change to the schedule of races will be posted by 20.00 on the day before it will take effect.

 6.    SIGNALS MADE ASHORE

 6.1    Signals made ashore will be displayed at Marina Eforie at the official flag pole.

 6.2    When Flag AP   is displayed ashore, ‘1 minute’ is replaced with ‘not less than 45 min.’ in the race signal AP.

 6.3    When Flag Y   is displayed ashore, rule 40 applies at all times while afloat. This changes the Part 4 preamble.

 7.1    Times of the first warning signals are defined as follows:

 30.08.2015    10.55    Inshore races (possible 2 races). First possible warning signal.

 The Organizing Authority and/or the RC reserve the right to modify the above program according to weather conditions and/or other unforeseen reasons.

 7.2    Three (3) races are scheduled including one (1) offshore race and two (2) inshore races.

 9.5    A boat starting later than 15 minutes after her starting signal will be scored Did Not Start without a hearing. This changes rule A4.

 9.6    Individual recall will signaled as soon as possible after the start signal. After signaling an individual recall, the RC will attempt to broadcast the sail number or bow number or name of boat that is identified as OCS on VHF but not earlier than 60 seconds after the starting signal. A failure or delay or the order of the broadcast will not be grounds for a request for redress. This changes RRS 62.1(a).

 10.    PENALTY SYSTEM

 10.1    The penalty for breaking a rule of RRS Part 2 will be One-Turn penalty. This changes RRS 44.1.

 10.2    For minor breaches of the Offshore Special Regulations and Sailing Instructions, 14, 17, 18 or 19.2, the jury may impose any penalty different from Disqualification, or not impose a penalty, at its discretion.

 11.3    Notices will be posted no later than 15 minutes after the protest time limit to inform competitors of hearings in which they are parties or named as witnesses. Hearings will be held in the protest room, beginning at the time posted.

 11.4    On the last day of the regatta a request for reopening a hearing or request for redress for a jury decision shall be delivered within the protest time limit if the party requesting reopening was informed of the decision on the previous day no later than 30 minutes after the party requesting reopening was informed of the decision on that day. This changes RRS 66.

 12.2    Offshore race results will be determined by corrected times calculated by Time-On-Time method.

 12.3    Length of course, directions of leg and wind will be decided by RC and will not be grounds for seeking redress. This changes RRS 60.1(b).

 13.3    Any use of the engine for propulsion purposes for rescuing people, giving help or any other reason shall be reported after arrival in written form to the RC stating reasons for such procedure. If a boat does not gain a significant advantage in the race, the jury may impose a penalty different from disqualification, or not impose a penalty, at its discretion.

14.1    The jury may approve crew changes (adding new crew members, replacing or disembarking crew members) by written skipper’s request made no later than 2 hour before the scheduled time of the start of the first race of the day.
