Re: New Safety Rules?

Try complying with the offshore regs for a Catagory 1 race:

The race committees want more participants but the cost of compliance gets more burdensome. I'm getting ready to build my emergency rudder, added AIS, had a second manual bilge pump operable from the cabin already aboard, bought an EPIRB, rented a life raft, am borrowing SOLAS flares and an offshore medical kit ... Don't ask me to translate that to dollars!
