Flushing Sailing Club

Courses

The Club publishes set Inner Harbour (Clubhouse) and Committee Boat (Carrick Roads) courses which are classified by prevailing wind direction. North is Group 1, North East is Group 2, through to North West, Group 8. Each of these groups has about a dozen or more possible courses, of distances between about 1.5nM and just over 10nM. The RO will select a course appropriate to wind direction and speed. The Inner Harbour and Committee Boat courses are quite different.

In some circumstances, when constrained by commercial shipping movements, a ninth Group of 16 potential courses may be used.

Courses end on the clubhouse line; on the Harbour ‘line’ (between the committee boat and the easternmost end of the Northern arm of the docks), or when shortened by the RO, at a buoy of the course.

Caveat: the courses in the SI booklet are definitive: those given here are for guidance only.

This list of potential courses is also available to download. The printable list is taken directly from the SI handbook and includes Group 9 (for use when constrained by commercial shipping)..
