Arizona Yacht Club practice race at Lake Pleasant, September 20, 2008

Bow of committee boat and boats racing a few minutes before their start. (In a standard RRS 26 start without special starting penalties, the blue-and-white Prep flag is raised four minutes before the start and lowered one minute before the start. For AYC races at Lake Pleasant, a course board, such as the yellow "PHRF" board, serves as the class flag and warning signal. At Tempe Town Lake, the Arizona Yacht Club flies class flags, and uses a three-minute starting sequence, so the prep flag is only up for a minute.)

Merit 25 no. 1111 "Circuitous"
