For the 2019 Auckland Laser Champs we are combining two events.

Open and Youth sailors will only be able to compete in the two day event. Masters sailors will be able to compete either in just the one day Auckland Masters OR in both events.
 
There will be an entry fee of $30 for Masters for the one-day event and an entry fee of $50 for all sailors electing to compete in the two-day event, which will cover Masters for both the one and two-day events if they elect to compete in both.
 
On Saturday both the Auckland Masters and Auckland Champs competitors will race together in their rig category with one start for Standards and one for Radials. We intend to schedule 4 races on Saturday.
 
Two sets of results will be produced on Saturday after racing, one set with only the Masters sailors included. Placings will exclude non-masters and overall results will include 1 discard if we get 4 races. 
 
A separate set of progress results will be published for all sailors who have entered the two-day event, including those Masters who have entered the two-day event. 
 
The Saturday results for all Masters will be the final results for the 2019 Auckland Laser Masters Championship. A Masters prize giving will be held after sailing on Saturday.
 
On Sunday we intend to schedule a further 4 races. Results for the 2-day Auckland Laser Champs will be published at the completion of Sundays racing for all sailors who have entered the two-day event, with one discard for the weekend if we have completed 5 or more races.
