Thanks for doing the start this morning. Bravo!
Michel: Thanks for kicking this off. I was a bit confused after I made the turn to port at WR87 and all I could see was a tanker. For a minute I thought, “What an odd vessel to use for the RC boat.”
For those racing from Herring Bay tomorrow, I tried to get clarification as to what was meant in 12.1 of the SIs by "the course side of Severn River lighted buoy "R 2 Fl R, 2.5s."
I really didn't get it super clear but I suspect it will be quite obvious as you approach the line. In any event, below is my conversation with EYC (read from bottom to the top):
The finishing line will be between the R2 and the adjacent Signal Boat.

Will you communicate the final location to the Herring Bay racers on Friday as well, folks are puzzled by the meaning of course side for R2.

Excellent question regarding the finishing line. The Signal Boat near R2 is doing 'triple duty' as the Signal Boat for the Pursuit Race as well as the Finishing Boat for the Rock Creek & Herring Bay races. It will be anchored on a bearing for the Pursuit Race which uses fixed government marks. We will pick the Pursuit Course on Friday. So it will not be anchored on a bearing for a Windward/Leeward course.
Hence the wording in the SIs. So no, please do not assume the "Vessel on Port and R2 on starboard".
I hope this makes sense. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.

I am the PRO for Herring Bay indeed: 301 536 8040
I will be sending you the photos as per your request.
I received one question from a racer regarding the SI. On the finish it states : the RC Finish Vessel and the course side of R2 Fl R, 2.5s We understand this to mean Vessel on Port and R2 on starboard, please advise if we didn't get that right.
Do we know which division will start first Saturday for HHSA?
If someone going up on Thursday or Friday before the race could pick up my skippers bag that would be great. Thanks very much! Roger
After what turned out to be beautiful evening yesterday (Thanks again to Doug and crew), next weekend is the Leukemia cup.
We currently have 6 registrants for the Herring bay start. Weather forecast (still quite a bit of time left) looks quite good with nice wind which should be lovely for flying chutes.
Delirium just registered for the Herring Bay start.
We're in! Just registered.
Disregard, the individual behind the little chat bubble thing at the bottom is actually helpful!
Thanks for the offer. I think I may need to take you up on that. I'm registered but I believe I picked the wrong option and ended up with a team of myself.
Stella Maris is working on signing up now. I live in downtown Annapolis so I can pickup if needed as well.
John: Will you be picking up the bags? EYC sent an email saying a LLS rep will be at EYC after the race with our stuff. I hadn't planned on docking at EYC.
Ah, OK, thanks. Yeah, I can't remember how it was done last year. Heck, I can't remember what happened yesterday.....
