FINISH

The order of finishing will be determined by the positions of the boats on the race course at the prescribed time of finish of the race. The Race Officer will endeavour to arrange for a patrol boat to determine the positions of the leading boats at the time of finish of the race, and thereafter to proceed back though the fleet noting positions.

In order to facilitate the process, boats shall comply with the following:
- In the ten minute period prior to the time of finish of the race, boats shall sail as closely as practicable to the lay-line to the next mark.
- In case a patrol boat is not available to record positions, each competitor shall note the identities of the boat immediately ahead and astern at the prescribed time of finish, and on coming ashore shall pass this information to the Race Officer.
- In the period immediately after the time of finish and until the finishing positions have been recorded, a boat shall not overtake another.


If the Race Officer cannot determine the winning boat with certainty from the information provided, he/she may declare the result to be a tie.
