Watcheye AIS Products
An important supporter of the 1000-Mile Race (as well as the 500-Mile Race last year) is the Dutch company Watcheye. Watcheye is a new brand of high class AIS products for yachts. They specialize on AIS systems for yachts with a length up to 20 meters.    
For their AIS products (receivers, transponders) are a deviation of class A AIS systems which are being used in Commercial shipping, Inland shipping, large yachts, etc. the basic design, set-up and look-and-feel of their product line  is basically the same as the Class A systems, although the class A systems have a slightly different configuration. All this results in very high quality AIS products!Check these innovative AIS products out!
@Watcheye: Thank you for your support!!

SAILING INSTRUCTIONS 2013
We are pleased to announce the publication of the 1000-Mile Doublehanded Race Sailing Instructions 2013. They will be presented in depth at the skippers briefing next week in IJmuiden, so plenty of time to read them carefully.
Save your questions or remarks for the general meeting if you think your fellow competitors could benefit from them, otherwise feel free to e-mail us your remarks.
They are available now at the RACE DOCS page
[Updated to v1.1: change of VHF ch in IJmuiden]

Important change of NoR
We added a procedure in case a competing team doesn't comply with Rule 3.1 and 8.1          
In brief, it describes  the situation when a competing boat doesn't have a valid IRC certificate in time nor a doublehanded crew. Fortunately most boats do comply with these rules already! 
To read the updated Notice of Race and about the introduction of the 1000-Mile Race Yardstick, visit the RACEDOCS page.

View to the north from Finish line control. The WP Gate is approximately located at the arrow.
 

In anticipation of the soon to be released Sailing Instructions, charts* with details on start, finish and course are ready to be downloaded from the RACEDOCS.

Minor update NoR




We applied a few minor corrections and removed  typos in the Notice of Race.
Also added the declarations every skipper need to sign, as well as the ISAF equipment checklist. We are expecting the Sailing Instructions to be published next week. Check it out at the RACEDOCS
In the meantime we present you Bjørski 2, a Humpries 30, crewed by Rasmus Tørnqvist and Eirik Larsen from Stavanger.

Safety inspection
As written in the Notice of Race, Safety Checks will be held prior to the start. Inspectors will visit you the day before the start (12th June) and will check equipment and papers.
Though it's a bit early in your planning perhaps, you could request an earlier safety check the week before the start. Just e-mail us..
ISAF has issued a handy check list, which might help with your preparations. Download it from RACEDOCS.
