Amendments 11 and 12 to the Special Regulations, issued by YA on 1 August effective 10 August
Amendments 11 and 12 to the Special Regulations
Please see attached for Amendments 11 and 12 to the Special Regulations. The amendments are also on the YA website at http://www.yachting.org.au/specialregs. The amendments are issued today (1 August) and become effective from 10 August.
Each issue has been through a considerable research and consultation process and we thank the states for their respective contributions.
Amendment 11 – Liferafts
This amendments update the liferaft requirements making it easier and hopefully cheaper for boat owners to procure, pack and service their rafts. It brings the contents into closer alignment with the ISAF OSR and should provide for greater international compatibility in the market.
Amendment 12 – Pulpits, Stanchions, Lifelines
The amendment simply deletes the regulation that prohibited the use of carbon fibre in pulpits, stanchions and lifelines. It was found that engineering practices and carbon fibre materials had developed to such an extent since the regulations was initially written, that it had become redundant. The change provides for greater choice and a more permissive regulatory environment.
