In addition, personel have to be assigned to be boat measurers that are familiar with the sections of the ACA OCS Racing Rules shown above.

Late Registration

Late registration, at an increased fee level, must have a cut-off date and time. Either a single cut-off or a separate cut-off for each race day in the schedule. These cut-off(s) should be set so as to allow time to integrate the new entries into the race data and create class lists and score strips in timely manor for the effected race day. Class lists should be published on the central 'Information Board' at the race site and by any other means deemed appropreate.
