NTC02 - Eligibility for boats under 6.5m

NTC issued 15 December 2020

The existing clause 1.2.e is deleted and replaced with the following:

For small keel boats under 6.5 metres, Part 1 amended to include an operative waterproof VHF transceiver, one “Inshore Kit” (as described in YNZ Safety Regulations Appendix 1). In addition, YNZ Safety Regulations Part V paragraphs 2.1-2.4 and SR Appendix 4 will apply.

The existing clause 1.2.f is deleted and replaced with the following:

All boats shall carry a serviceable inboard or outboard engine and propeller capable of driving the yacht in smooth water at a speed exceeding 4 knots. However, a boat may compete without an engine with the prior express permission of the Race Committee. Such permission maybe given subject to conditions. A decision to give or not give permission will not be grounds for redress. This changes RRS 62.1(a).

A new clause 1.2.g is added:

The Race Committee may direct small keel boats under 6.5 metres not to compete in any given race due to adverse weather conditions. A decision to give or not give such direction will not be grounds for redress. This changes RRS 62.1(a).

The existing clause 3.1 is amended, with the following added:

The Regatta is also open to other small keel boats under 6.5 metres with agreement of the Organising Authority.

The effect of this change is that small keel boats under 6.5 metres, such as the Elliot 6 class, will now be eligible to enter the Regatta.
