Starting from HISC competitors will be required to sail through four gates on the course. One will be positioned in the area of Northney Marina (gate 1) at the top of Chichester Harbour, one near the Ferryboat Inn (gate 2) on the west side of Hayling Island. One directly to the south of the Inn on the Beach on Hayling seafront (gate 3) and one to the south of the HM Coastguard look out on the seafront (gate 4). Failure to pass through these gates will result in disqualification.
There will be options to finish at Gate 1 or 2.
