The General Rules state that "The race begins annually on the weekend following St. Valentine's Day..."

Competitors are reminded that this may be as early as 0000 UTC, Saturday, February 21st, 2015

In common local times this translates as:
US PST Friday 1600; MST 1700; CST 1800; EST 1900; AST (Atlantic) 2000;
NSW Australia - Daylight Saving time 1100 (AM) Saturday

The actual start time will be announced in the upcoming days (well prior to the race) but this notice should alert teams that it could be earlier than has been the norm in past years.
