There could be some confusion about the finish location.  This arises from the (rather abrupt) discovery a couple of years back that a submerged tree lurked in the water near the Villa Capri dock.  We decided to avoid further problems with boats getting hung up on the tree by setting up a floating flag off the end of the dock to be one end of the finish line, until such time as the tree can be removed.  Because the situation was temporary (only 2 years now) the SI description of the finish has been a bit fluid. . .  This is your notice (of something you all know already) that any space between the flag (floating or otherwise) and the end of the dock is an obstruction.  The RC is not armed, but does have the right to damage your position in the race if you even touch the flag.
