Winterfell's Tall Ship Race and Privateers Ball SFL Edition

Saturday June 29th @ 11:30am - Winterfell's Tall Ship Race

The Tall Ship Race is part of the Swashbuckler for Life multi-team RFL Event, organized by the Winterfell Privateers

The race will start South of the Nepenthe Gate, the border between Winterfell and Caledon and will end under the gate itself, after a tour of the Southern Winterfell sims.
The race field is shown in the included image.

Eligible ships are 2 or 3 masted sailships propelled by SL winds, usually used in naval battles and belonging to the SPD, TSS, SCS, SSS, JRS, AT, BRS classes (any ship usually approved for naval battles is eligible, even if not listed here). There is no other limit, but keep in mind that not all the ships fit under the Nepenthe gate. Even if the bridge will be opened at the required moments, the opening is rather narrow and ships that fit under the gate will be able to get more room to maneuver and will find themselves at an advantage (an SPD Frigate, for instance will require the gate to be opened)

Each race will be one go through the race field once

If 2 ships will enter the race we will have a direct final
If 3 ships will enter the race we will have a round robin (each ship will compete against the other two). In case each ship wins one  race we will have a 3 ships final
If 4-5 ships will enter the race we will have 2 semifinals (one with 3 ships and the other with 2 ships) and the winners will meet in a final
if 6-7 ships enter the race we will have 3 semifinals and one 3-ships final
If 8 or more ships will enter the race we will have quarterfinals, semifinals and final

The Race will take place on Saturday 29 from 11:30 am to 1 pm SLT.
