6. Availability for Judging and Test Sailing: Participating boats must be available for test sailing by the judges on one or more of the four, or possibly five, days (Oct. 9 - 12) immediately following the U.S. Sailboat Show in Annapolis (Oct. 4 – 8, 2012). They must also be available for dockside inspection before and during the show. This is necessary for the judges to have adequate time aboard, both at the dock and in sea trials, to give your boat the attention and thoroughness of consideration it deserves. Entrants will be notified of their dockside-inspection and test-sail schedules, as established by the magazines. We will reserve time on Saturday, October 13, to retest boats selected by the judging team if, in the judges' opinion, these boats did not receive a fair sailing opportunity because of weather and if, in the judges' opinion, such retesting could prove relevant to the outcome of judging decisions.
