Islander 36 Association
2018 Racing Schedule

Here's your fist pass at the 2018 Racing Schedule from Fleet Captain Eric Mueller, & Measurer Kit Wiegman. Plan to join us for a fun year of racing. This year we're going to have both Spinnaker and Non-Spinnaker Divisions for all races. This takes us back to include the great years of lots of colorful Islander blasting along under spinnerkers, and still gives the no-spinnaker boats a chance to join the fun ad win the Buster Hammond Trophy! Everyone is encouraged to join us for some or all of the races. If you're interested, we may be able to provide a "racing coach" to help you get started - just ask.

The season races are listed, followed by the Islander 36 Sailing Instructions for the 2018 season.

Thank you,
Eric Mueller

Islander 36 Sailing Instructions

For the Islander Fleet, the 2017-2020 Racing Rules of Sailing will be used, but modified as noted below.
The 2018 season will consist of xx races.
For all I-36 Season Championship races, a 135% jibs will be standard standard.
All of the races will be raced with both spinnaker and non-spinnaker scoring.
That means for all races, there can be two boats that are scored 1st, 2nd, 3rd, etc. for the Season's Championship. The Ormand Cup will be awarded to the boat with the highest Season Standing that flew a spinnaker. If that boat happens to also be 1st in the Season championship standings, the Buster Hammond Trophy for the Non-Spinnaker championship will go to the highest scored boat that did not fly a spinnaker.

The standard I-36 PHRF rating of 144 will be the base rating. Ratings will be adjusted as follows, based on the data for that boat on the I-36 web page I-36 PHRF Measurements Input. If your boat is not listed, or the data needs to be updated, email Measurer Kit Wiegman.

Rating adjustments:
Fixed 2 blade prop = +10 sec/mi
Fixed 3 blade prop = +15 sec/mi
Largest headsail greater than 135% will be rated as -x seconds per mile, depending on the size of the headsail.
Standard Tall rigs = -6 sec/mi. Non-standard tall rigs will be rated per standard PHRF adjustments.
Non-Spinnaker - no adjustment
Roller furling - no adjustment
Boat weight - no allowance for weight differences

We are using a modified low point system to encourage more people to join us with one point for first two for second, on down the line. Did Not Finish (DNF) is equal to number of starters for the race plus one. Did Not Compete (DNC) is equal to number of boats entered plus two.

Each participant is allowed three throw outs for the season. For scoring purposes, the first throwout will be counted after 5 races, the seocnd after 7, and the third after 9.

The Season's Championship entry fee is $TBD, plus, you need to join the YRA (Yacht Racing Association) if you're not a member - $50. To be confirmed.
