Reply To: Open meeting format
We have tried a couple of meetings at South Staffs this year with a four race format – GPs and Lark youths. We wanted two in the morning – back to back- and two in the afternoon. The race length was 45 mins instead of 55-60 and the time limit for finishers reduced to 15 mins.
We had no wind in the morning for the GPs but still managed three races after an early lunch. The Lark event was quite well received.
I am considering this for the OKs next year – Youths and Open. Five races could be a bit of a rush – running four was reasonably busy.
