NOTICE OF RACE


48th ANNUAL GASPARILLA REGATTA – February 4, 2012


SPONSORED BY LEXUS OF TAMPA BAY & HOSTED BY THE TAMPA SAILING SQUADRON


Tampa Sailing Squadron is the organizing authority for this regatta. This event is governed by the Racing rules 


of Sailing (RRS), applicable One Design Class rules and the WFPHRF Class Rules, except as any of these 


may be modified by this Notice and the Regatta Sailing Instructions. The regatta is open to any sailing vessel 


with a valid WFPHRF rating certificate, except that such certificate is waived for (a) class-legal One Design 


boats racing in a One Design Class, and (b) the “Mother Lode” Class (TSS will assign a rating). This race is a 


Category 4 event. 


The following divisions are planned: Spinnaker, Non-Spinnaker, Racer/Cruiser, True Cruising, One Design and 


“Mother Lode”. Each division may be subdivided at the sole discretion of TSS, as the organizing authority, and 


such subdivision is not grounds for a protest or request for redress. 


Four (4) or more entries received by TSS no later than 1900 on Friday, February 3, may constitute a class. 


Possible classes include J-24 and  others. TO FORM A CLASS, CONTACT REGATTA CHAIRMAN KENT 


BAILEY (813-727-1202) BEFORE JANUARY 31.

performance in this regatta will be presented after dinner. The number of trophies will be based on the number 


of entries in each class. 


Any competitor who challenges a vessel confined to the Tampa Bay shipping channels causing them to file a report, or who violates a 


moving or static safety or security zone resulting in the filing of a report will be scored DSQ. This changes Rule 63.1. 


Sailing is an activity that has an inherent risk of damage or injury. Competitors in this event are participating entirely at their own risk. 


See RRS 4, Decision to Race. The race organizers (organizing authority, race committee, protest committee, host club, sponsors, or 


any other official or agent) will not be responsible for any damage to any boat or other property or any personal injury or death, in 


conjunction with or prior to, during or after the regatta. Each competitor agrees to participate entirely at his/her own risk and, to the 


fullest extent permitted by law, waives any rights to sue the race organizers and releases the race organizers from any and all liability, 


in conjunction with or prior to, during or after the regatta. NOTE: It is ultimately the responsibility of each individual skipper to participate 


or not – all factors, including weather, should be considered in the decision to race or continue racing. 


For additional information, call Regatta Chairman Kent Bailey (813-727-1202) or Rumgatta@gmail.com
