Caspian Cup


Team Senior

Ship crew (60 men max.)

Coaching crew (2 men)


LOCATION

Caspian Sea water zone


STAGE


Competitions between ship crews with combat artillery firing exercises


Route

1 lap.

Speed

12 knots

Start

Start: in different time with 2-hour interval.

Route sections:

− waiting area
− start and finish frontiers
− combat training areas
− penalty water zone sections are after every artillery firing range

Artillery firing ranges:

− initial lines
− fire/no fire lines

Targets

- artillery firing at pinpoint sea target (1-2 small shield(s) 455)
- artillery firing at aerial target (meteo sounding balloon, parachute target M-6– upon the number of participants, taking into account reserve)
- artillery firing at buoyant mine (buoyant mine models upon the number of participants, taking into account reserve).


Maritime training competition


Route

10-15 miles.

Speed

12 knots.

Start

Start: in different time with 30 minutes interval in priority on the results of the first competition day.

1 section

Participants compete in speed of receiving and transferring signals with the use of dressing flags according to MSS-65. Every ship crew receives coordinate of the point where it should make a ship identification with the Contest administration to receive the next task.

2 section

Ship crew receives coordinate of the point where it should bring a ship to an anchor with the prescribed course.

3 section

After unanchoring ship goes to the reference point at the speed of 12 knots, identifies the Contest administration ship (vessel) and receives coordinates of “small-sized vessel suffering distress”. In the framework of this episode ship crew trains people sea rescue. The episode ends with lifting human analog on ship’s board. After this episode ship goes to the finish frontier. When second Stage is finished, the scores are summarized and winners are determined


Penalties

If the target is missed, “penalty lap” is set by Referee (it means deviation from determined main route to penalty buoy, its bending and returning back to the end point by the route of the episode being fulfilled). If a penalty buoy is touched by ship’s body while going by “penalty lap”, total penalty time increases in 1 minute.


SUMMING-UP

Results of the “Caspian Cup” are based on the scores in first and second stages. Team with minimal total time for distance and minimal time added for notfulfilling estimated figures when overcoming obstacles (a penalty lap), takes the first place in the rating table with 5 rating points, for the second place – 4points, for the third – 3 points and for the forth – 2 points.
