Start and Finish Lines

The continuation of a line between two white poles with orange triangles mounted on the wall of the quayside. A yellow buoy acts as an inner distance marker at the start and finish of races: boats must pass on the Conwy (western) side of this buoy at the start and end of the races, but may use the full width of the river otherwise.


All marks are to be left to Port unless specified by (s).
