Safety cover - please arrive in plenty of time to check fuel levels and ensure that all equipment is onboard.
It is suggested that you are on the water 30 minutes prior to sailing starting. Sailors should not be allowed on the water during organised sessions without safety boat cover being present.
Please have two safety boats available, one for you to drive and another hooked up to the pontoon in case a second safety boat is required for a rescue.
Safety boats are not to be used for joy riding and a passenger should only be onboard if they are able to assist you with a rescue
Please ensure that you have a two way radio with you at all times
Duty Hut – Please ensure that the following information is written down on the sailing sheets:
1. Class of boat for example Laser, Laser Radial, Laser 4.7, Laser 2, Comet, Comet Mino or Comet Duo. This information is required as results are calculated on the type of boat sailed check out the PY Ratings of the RYA Portsmouth Yardstick
2. Sail number
3. Name of sailor and name of crew if in a double handed boat
It is important that this information is written down to enable us to calculate the day's race results as without a name and class of boat a sailor will not be given a race time.
All the information you require to record the races and set the course are in the duty box in the club house
Please ensure that you have a two-way radio with you
It is your responsibility in consultation with the safety boat driver to cancel a race/sailing session if weather conditions are such that it makes sailing dangerous.
