Solent Mark Designations

In recent years, SCRA and Cowes Week have published a list of 90 of the main racing marks in the Solent area using 2-digit identifiers. For 2011, we have agreed to replace the 2-digit list with a new Solent Mark Designations list with over 150 marks, so including far more of those that are commonly used. Each mark is now described by two characters - either two digits or one digit and one letter. The list is recommended for use by all clubs and race organisers where courses are given on the radio, and may be used for course boards if desired.

Details of the new Solent Mark designations are contained here.
