    SSS Race committee update on rescheduled SH Farallones and Round The Rocks races

    Two updates from the SSS 2020 season race committee:

    1) We have tentative approval from the USCG to run the rescheduled 2020 Singlehanded Farallones race ‪on Saturday June 27th.‬ Please note that we do not yet have final approval, but we wanted to give skippers as much time ahead of the race as possible to allow for boat preparations and compliance with safety requirements. We will share final USCG approval as soon as it is confirmed.
    You can register now here:

    2) We are currently planning to run the rescheduled 2020 Round The Rocks towards the end of July begging of August. We will confirm this date at the earliest possible opportunity.

    An updated 2020 season NOR will be posted to the SSS website detailing the revised schedule and providing guidance regarding relevant social distancing practices.

    There should be only a few changes to the standard SH Farallones SIs, most notably the requirement for skippers to record their own finish times as a back-up to the race committee record. We are planning a Zoom-based skipper’s meeting ‪on Thursday June 25th at 7:00 PM‬ to review the SHF SIs and to answer any questions. Log-in details will be published on the SSS Forum and on Jibeset.

    Depending on the relevant social distancing regulations in place in mid-July, there may be more substantive changes to the standard Round The Rocks SIs, designed to enable appropriate social distancing for the race committee. We endeavor to share these modifications to the standard racing format as soon as possible.

    Thanks for your patience as we work through all of this.
    The SSS Board
