NOR and SER amendments

We have amended the Notice of Race (NOR) and the Safety Equipment Requirements (SERs). These changes will clarify several potentially ambiguous points and in the SERs, specifically, have either eliminated duplicate or unnecessary requirements or, in the case of the AIS, changed it from a requirement to a recommended item. The links on this website have been updated with the amended documents, and a new link, "Notice re: Amendments", has been added that contains a short summary of the changes to both the NOR and SERs. Lastly, the PDF of the entire Entry Packet and all documents at RegattaNetwork have also been updated. If you have already previously downloaded these documents, please download the new versions to ensure you have the latest information. If you have any questions, please contact me at
