Just a reminder to those attending the Nationals
- In order to comply with Racing Rules of Sailing (RRS) rule 78.1, you have to have a measurement certificate for the boat with the correct owner's details on it (except Bronze & Regatta fleet).
- Both helm & crew need to be a member of the UK Class Association
- You need to have sails that carry a certification mark (except Bronze & Regatta fleet)
- The boat's buoyancy needs to have been tested or inspected within the last 12 months (except Bronze & Regatta fleet). Steve Bland has kindly agreed to help me with buoyancy tests for the untested again this year, but it would be helpful if you came with it already done, or at least checked that it will pass (no leaks, no missing 'O' rings,......etc.)
More details on testing buoyancy here.
If you are trailing your boat any distance, it is also worth checking your trailer bearings.
