Equipment Auditing

Equipment Audits

Note that Equipment Audit forms represent a static “snapshot” regarding a boat’s compliance with the special regulations. It is the owner's responsability to ensure that all dated items remain in date.The Club's Equipment Auditor’s may undertake random equipment audits on vessels participating in RANSA events. A vessel that fails to comply with a reasonable direction of the Race Committee or an Equipment Auditor, or that fails to comply with equipment requirements, may be subject to protest by the Race Committee.

 If you want more information on the Safety Requirements and any recent changes to the Category standards they can be viewed on Australian Sailing Special Regulations web site page.
