INTRODUCTION
_____________________________________________________________________________________________________


The text of the ISA Standard Notice of Race is attached on pages 2 and 3. It is intended that host clubs should use the standard wording in full with the local information inserted. Note that wording in italics is advisory only and should be omitted from the published Notice of Race. When completing the Notice of Race host clubs are also advised to refer to RRS 87 and 88 and Appendix J, Notice of Race, and ISA Championship Rule 5, Notice of Race. If any host club finds difficulties in completing the Notice of Race or wishes to significantly change the wording from the standard they should contact ………………………….. to discuss the matter further.

The Notice of Race must state the amount of the entry fee, in what form it will be accepted and what it includes - e.g. social functions, mooring, craning in and craning out before, during, and after the Championship. Please note that ISA Championship Rules state that the entry fee per boat shall be at the discretion of the Host Club, but shall not exceed Euros 450, included in this fee the OA is required to send the ISA Euros 75 for each entry – the Championship Fee. Please note also Championship Rule 5.42 which states that Host Clubs may not charge any fee in addition to the entry fee prescribed in Rule 5.4 unless decided otherwise by the ISA Committee in the case of a particular regatta.

The document containing the Notice of Race should also contain general information about the venue such as weather information and surrounding sites of interest, together with information regarding storage, launching and mooring, prices and availability of accommodation, etc. (as per Championship Rule 5.12), and details of any social activities (Championship Rule 5.134). However, this information should not form part of the Notice of Race itself.

Finally, please note that Championship Rule 5 requires that the host club submit a draft of the Notice of Race to the ISA Secretariat for its approval not later than six months before the first race.
