NCORC posts draft Minimum Equipment Requirements

After a few months of preparation and procrastination the Northern California Offshore Racing Council Safety Committee has come up with a draft of the Minimum Equipment Requirements to be used starting with the 2013 season.

It is our hope that these MER are adopted by all organizing authorities that conduct ocean races within the Gulf of the Farallones. We think it is a pretty basic list.

The current members of the NCORC Safety Committee are:

Michael Andrews, Vice Commodore of Encinal YC, ran the Coastal Cup in 2012
Jim Antrim, Naval Architect, Pacific Cup YC
Max Crittenden, newly former Commodore of SSS
Chuck Hawley, US Sailing (and West Marine)
Andy Newell, OYRA President (and committee cat herder)
Jim Quanci, New SSS Commodore, OYRA board member

We think this is a good list, but we decided to publish this draft prior to calling it final because although we all sail here, you do too. We want your input and constructive criticism. Please use this forum to begin that discussion.

The second file on the page is a draft of our inspection policy. Yes, there will be inspections.

Thanks,
Andy
