Course Layout....

....or specifically, how long is the starting line suppossed to be?

I'm racing with a club that seems to set the length of the starting line a bit on the short side, depends on who is "Race Committee" for the day, some are very short others are OK at best.

I've heard rules of thumb such as "add all the competing boat lengths and multiply by 125%" but all my Google searches turn up nothing.

Is there a rule, regulation or convention that prescribes the length of the starting line?
