Definition of short, medium, and long will be at the PRO's discretion depending on what boats are represented at the skipper's meeting. Verbal SI's at the skipper's meeting.

No awards - other than bragging rights, a drink on the house and a championship photo.
Sail the afternoon away. Maybe a hull flying contest or steeplechase.
Back on the beach by 5pm, so you can relax and have dinner at the club
May the winds be double digit and your hull in the air,
