Safety Equipment Declaration: New forms now due
All RMYS boats wishing to race must provide an up-to-date Safety Equipment Declaration. The forms can be found on the RMYS website. Please complete the appropriate form and email it back to Colin. This will cover you until June 2022. Once your form has been received you can collect your safety sticker from the office. An extension until the 9th now applies so get your new form into Colin, after that you may be scored DNC without a hearing (see SI’s section 4.1)
There are still a number of boats not doing a crew sign on/declaration. This is mandatory and failure to comply will result in a DSQ from the race in question. The declaration shall include an emergency contact person and phone number for each crew member including the skipper on board that day. Please note, an emergency contact person for a crew member should NOT be on board the boat that day.
If a crew declaration is made or adjusted post the race, that does not fulfill the requirements.
We are still looking for boats to get on board with this. It is getting traction around the bay and we would like to see how it may work for RMYS. To do this we need boats to sign up so we can see how the results pan out. This is an ideal handicap for those boats that current only race on PHS. Its low cost and simple to get especially if you have a production boat. Use this LINK for information and online application.
MemberPoint: Finding Crew
Just a quick reminder that one of the key features of the MemberPoint app is its ability to connect boats and crew in a simple and easy manner.
To take advantage of this feature – and to help people find boats to sail on – can you please complete the Boat Profile under “My Account”.
Complete each line and then when you are looking for crew for a race set “Enabled” to Yes. If you do not need crew then set “Enabled” to No.
NB: The details of your boat will not change unless you update them so you can go in, and change “enabled” as many times as you need/want.
Even if you do not often want crew, it would be helpful for you to do the boat profile, that way it is easy to quickly update the “Position” and “Availability” and make you visible to those looking for a ride.
An easy-to-follow video on how to do this can be viewed via this LINK
Any question on how to do this please contact Colin
