Change to Safety Category - Arafura Short Offshore Series

Sailing Committee has reviewed the safety category of the Arafura Short Offshore Series races, with these to now be sailed under modified Category 4 requirements.

The review has taken into account the predominantly shorter courses being set for these races than was the case several years ago and is aimed at making it easier and more economic for boat owners to be able to enter.

With thirty-six areas that are different between the two categories, Sailing Committee has stipulated that above Category 4 requirements, only Special Reg. 3.25.4(b) shall apply "Have a mast head antenna." An alternative antenna, which has the same or superior range will also be acceptable.

The Amended Notice of Race is available HERE or from the Arafura Short Offshore Series page.
