2017 Safety Equipment Requirements for Nearshore & Offshore Races

The five founding member clubs that make up CASRA place safety at the forefront of sailboat racing.  Since the day CASRA was formed, safety has been integral to all work that commenced on improving and growing sail racing along the Chicago waterfront.

For the 2017 racing season, the five founding member clubs of CASRA have developed and adopted broad requirements for both nearshore and offshore races for which the clubs are the Organizing Authorities (OAs).  The 2017 Nearshore Safety Equipment Requirements and the 2017 Offshore Safety Equipment Requirements are now available.

These safety requirements must be adhered to by all competitors participating in the races that are organized and administered under the Common NORs and SIs.  Official documents will be published on yachtscoring.com with courtesy copies available at chicagosailracing.org/documents.

Enjoy the 2017 season that is about to commence, and above all, sail safe.
