Re: Planting Accident Report-Final

The verbiage appears to indicate that this will only apply to YNZ Sailing Club Members or those that seek a Category 1 Safety Certificate from a YNZ Sailing Club.

From what I can tell YNZ is a small non-profit organization with about 25 employees and has about 250 affiliated Sailing Clubs but is not a governmental authority.

Here is what their WebSite has to say about them:
About us
Helping New Zealanders access, enjoy and succeed on the water for life.

Yachting New Zealand is the national sports body in New Zealand for the sport of sailing at all levels. We are a non-profit organisation of approximately 20 employees around the country and 250+ member clubs, classes and organisations.

These changes only appear to apply to the rules that YNZ and their affiliated sailing clubs operate under of which the Platino appears to have been a member and certified by:
YNZ introduces changes to the Safety Regulations of Sailing.

Since the time of the Platino accident, YNZ has made changes to
Changes to Safety Regulations of Sailing with the learnings of the
Platino accident in mind. These changes are listed below:

1. All vessels must have the required ratio of crew with an Advanced Sea
Survival qualification 51 (SR APPENDIX 6).
This requirement had previously been applied only to racing yachts. However the
requirement is now being applied to cruising yachts which may be lightly crewed
but are undertaking a long voyage.

2. All vessels seeking a category 1 safety certificate are to have a written
manual available to all crew.

3. Yacht Inspectors who have not attended the last conference or have not
completed an inspection in the 12 months immediately prior is to
be accompanied by another Inspector

As far as I can see those who are not YNZ Sailing Club Members should have little to worry about.
