Six Regular Race Days are scheduled for the NYRA Winter Series and one Makeup Race Day is scheduled. Racing will occur on the Makeup Race Day just as it does on Regular Race Days if, and only if, there have not been 8 or more races scored in the Winter Series (including the Halloween Regatta) after the completion of racing on Day 6. If, due to cancellations of any kind, only 7 or fewer races have been scored after the completion of racing on Day 6, racing will continue in the same manner on the Makeup Day.
