A note from your Race Management team:
Please ensure you contact the Race Officer (Tower, Committee Boat etc.) if you retire from a race for any reason.
The squadron was running the regular Classic Yacht Association race over the weekend when 19 boats started, and only 18 finished (with one RMYS-based boat missing).
It’s an easy mistake to make, having a tough day on the race course and thinking a better outcome would be a trip to Williamstown or a sail for a bit, but it's very important to advise formally – even if you think that race officials have seen you head off or head home.
Please radio/phone in and advise of your intention to withdraw (and the reason why) and ensure you get an acknowledgement.
