        How does the change of course procedure transpire?
        Thanks for asking. 2 ways.
        Before registration is closed the racer can change it in jibeset on their own. You select the desired course on entry.
        The equipment list, roll call, time limit, turning mark are different for the different courses.
        The waiver says you are going to do what you selected. Racer can update entry including course as necessary.

        On the course, you withdraw from the course you checked in- as you would in DHF in the past. Once that is acknowledged by RC (as DHF in the past) you can then inform RC that you are entering the desired shorter course. Equipment is downward compatible so you already meet the shorter course requirements. RC updates Jibeset real time so CG is up to date.

        From SI
        >
        23. WITHDRAWALS
        Any yacht withdrawing from the race for any reason must
        contact the Race Committee via VHF Channel 16, 71, or via
        telephone 650-394-6343 as soon as possible, and then again
        once on the bay side of the Golden Gate Bridge. If retiring by
        radio, make sure the race committee acknowledges your
        withdrawal. Yachts identified as having started, but not
        finishing or withdrawing will result in phone calls to the skipper
        and crew emergency phone numbers, and then if not found,
        will result in a USCG response. Withdrawing yachts that fail to
        comply with this provision shall be denied entry in next year’s
        race. Once withdrawal is confirmed DHF racers may confirm
        entering the DHWB, DHG7 or DHBL races, a DHWB racer may
        confirm entering the DHG7 or DHBL races, and DHG7 racers
        may confirm entering DHBL race.

          When will nap time for RC happen if no mid day break?

            Sounds like a reasonable idea, given all the variables.

                  No. See SI. Gives people a chance to race back and join those in that race already.

                          Curious as to whether a radio signal from a boat outside the gate can get back to the race deck?

                            Assuming VHF not cell
                            Assuming fixed mount 25W VHF
                            Assuming mast head antennae

                            To the remote race deck yes. We have talked to boats after rounding SE Farallones/Maintop
                            To the CG yes
                            To GGYC- yes if line of sight
                            To berkeley and richmond- a lot more than you think

                            DSC Alert even better
                            What is the concern/issue?
