Racing Area:

The racing will be on the water of Pewaukee Lake.

Radio Communication:

Flags will be the primary means of communication on the water; however, the Race Committee will attempt to make VHF radio contact regarding OCS, weather issues, safety concerns, and other actions of the RC where clarification might be helpful to the competitors. The competitor channel will be posted.

Spectator Boats:

Spectator boats are available on a limited basis. Your best chance is to make yourself available on one of the PYC piers at least 30 minutes prior to racing.
