Special Regulations July 2021 and Equipment Audit forms

As part of our Sailing Program, we conduct two Equipment Audits  each year, however due to Covid-19 restrictions, 2021-22 Equipment Audits have been postponed and dates will be advised.  SASC will recognise 2020-21 Equipment Audits for Categories 4-7 until 30th September provided that yachts maintain compliance with the Australian Sailing Special Regulations.

It is important to make sure you have serviced your inflatable life jackets – you will need to provide documentation confirming annual servicing.  Maritime have posted a video to show how to self-service your lifejacket:

You can leave your fire extinguishers at the clubhouse from 14th August to 29th August.  They will be serviced and ready for collection after 1st September 2021  – replacements will be available for purchase if required.

An Equipment Audit form can be downloaded below and should be completed prior to booking an audit with the office.  The Special Regulations will help you with completion of your audit form.

If you are not able to complete your audit on the scheduled days, you can contact one of the club auditors listed below.  There is a charge of $25 for Cat 7 and $50 for Cat 4 for audits requested outside the organised audit days:
