Equiptment Audits: Which form do I need?

The minimum category of race for the event you wish to enter will be detailed in the Notice of Race. For example, Keelboat racing on the Swan River during daylight hours is covered by Category 7. As you venture out onto the ocean the more stringent the requirements become up to Category 2 for the Geraldton Ocean Classic. Higher categories will cover lower category requirements, i.e. Cat 2 will also be good for river racing. So you only need to complete one form for the event you wish to enter that has the highest race category.

Please make your selection from the options below:

What happens next?

Once you have completed your Equipment Audit Form, submit it via your registration entry or to the ">On Water Group. Generally for category 7 and 6 races, the form does not require a mandatory inspection by one of the Club’s appointed Auditors. SoPYC Auditors currently carry out random inspections throughout the summer season to assess compliance with the selected race category. If your boat is chosen for an inspection, an Auditor will contact you to arrange a convenient time to meet you at your boat for a quick and friendly inspection. If during the inspection, the Auditor finds any shortcomings, the Skipper is given time to meet full compliance.
