Regulations & Equipment Audit
Welcome to the Alfred
Royal Prince Alfred Yacht Club
Regulations & Equipment Audit Forms
At the Royal Prince Alfred Yacht Club the safety of all competitors and waterway users is key. This starts with ensuring all boats participating in a club organised event meets the regulations of Australian Sailing and Club regulations. The Club actively encourages safe sailing. Think safety, sail safely. The Club is very proud of its excellent safety record, however we believe this can only be maintained if we actively pursue a range of initiatives aimed at minimising the risk to the sailors and boats.
The Cruising Regulations are also referred to as the Green Book. All boats participating in Club cruising events must comply with these regulations. There are several special regulations categories and these apply to different types of cruising events. These categories are Inshore, Short Coastal, Long Coastal and Ocean. For full details and information on the Cruising Green Book Regulations see below.
Competitors are reminded that, all Australian Sailing (AS) Special Regulations Equipment Audit Forms expire annually, on 30th June each year. Additionally, any RPAYC Green Book (Cruising) Equipment Audit Forms, expire 12 moths from the date of validation.
A boat is not eligible to compete without a current audit on file with the club. A completed audit form is one signed by a club auditor and submitted to the Sailing Office.
Competitors who will be entering a club Series (to race) or a Cruising event are required to submit a completed audit form (all expiry and supplementary documents; these may include EPIRB / PLB details as per AMSA website, Purchase receipts for Fire Extinguishers, Radio Inspection Forms, Liferaft Certificates) to the Sailing Office.
