THE TAHOE CUP SAILING INSTRUCTIONS

The Tahoe Cup is a race series of designated races thru one season of the LTWYC races. Designated races this season have a star.. See LTWYC Race Schedule. A contender races their boat in the LTWYC races and must be a regular member of the LTWYC. The series is scored to the boat and the same contender should skipper the boat. Alternate skippers may be designated if the regular skipper is not racing.

Racing is under the Racing Rules of Sailing and the Standing Sailing Instructions of the LTWYC.

Scoring is under the Racing Rules of Sailing with exceptions as listed: (1) One throwout is permitted. Throwout may be a DNS. A boat serving committee boat duty may use that race as a throwout or (2) may take an average of her other scores for that race. See rule 90.3 and Appendix A. Low point system will be used.

Scores for Tahoe Cup points in races where non LTWYC members compete shall exclude non LTWYC member boats, for the purpose of scoring the Tahoe Cup.

Boats are scored in overall corrected time for all boats. Winner may be from any division. Recognition will also be given to top performing boat in cruising/nonspinnaker divisions.
