This is the Sonar selection process for popular events such as Cowes Week and Tuesday Evening Race Series and the ISC Annual Regatta.
Early in the season, the ISC Sailing Committee decide on hire and charter fees for the coming year. The ISC Sonars are regularly in high demand; enquiries for event bookings will not be entertained until 1st January. Thereafter indications of interest will be accepted via email. Please contact the Sailing Secretary firstname.lastname@example.org. Or by telephone to 01983 249431.
If more names than the number of boats available have been received by end of February, the book will close and all names will be put into a hat. If fewer names than boats have been received, those names will be accepted, and the remaining spaces taken on a first come first served basis.
The first names drawn at random will be asked to pay the deposit, on receipt they will have their booking confirmed. Anyone not wishing to continue their booking will be released, and remaining Sonars offered to those remaining in the hat.
Any names still in the hat when all boats have a paid their deposit will be contacted and informed they are on a waiting list, their names will also be drawn at random, to establish the waiting list order.
When final balances are paid, initial boat allocation will take place. Please note, some events may adopt the Sonar Shuffle procedure. Skippers will be informed if this is to apply.
