For once and for all...
In the SOUTHERN hemisphere:
The race instructions tell us that 'at least one point of the gate must be left at the south of your course'.
This simply means that each boat must been seen (during at least 1 course refresh (10 minutes)) at the NORTH of the gate, this between the longitudes of the east- and the westside of the gate.
You, thus, can pass the gates in the 4 ways as in the drawing below.
Some will choose not to cross the gates and thus stay north of it over the whole length, this will make them sail a longer course, that's all.

WEST--------------------------------------------------------------------EAST


All the other type of gates MUST BE CROSSED

For the NORTHERN hemisphere: Same principle, but at least 1 point of the gate must be left at the NORTH of your course. Means that at a moment ( 10 minute update ) you must be seen at the SOUTH of the gate between the west and the east longitude of the gate.
The drawing must then be turned upside down!

My Pig of a boat is now available for kindling for anyones fire as I have finally subbornly desperately finished the dreadfully boring ICG race.

I have finished 4 other races in the the to do this one.

Lets not go there again unless its winter and blowing like stink

Hallo Fabrice,

King of the Ice gates Laughing Laughing Laughing

This is a very clear and precise instruction and I think you should give this a sticky , such that is will stay at the top of the Features&Rules and will always be easy to find back.
