Re: New Safety Rules?

The changes don't seem very different from what has already been in effect for races around here. Based on the OP's link, it looks to me like we'll need to get a lanyard to attach the pump handle to something in the cockpit, ($0.75?) lash a sheath knife to the binnacle somewhere ($49.50?), and get a new handheld radio a year from now.($125.47, what with inflation?) If I'm going offshore and need to buy an 8-man liferaft - that's another story.
