This is a simple start of season guide and is intended as an aid only to assist with the setting up of your yacht for the ISORA Offshore series.
Are you familiar with the requirements of Category 4, Category 3 (with life-raft) and Notice of Race and General Conditions - read more here.
Have you applied for your IRC certificate?
When is the next service date for the life-raft, have you serviced your life jackets and checked your flares and fire extinguishers?
Is the engine serviced and ready? Are the ship batteries in good condition? Have you checked the electrics, instruments and the navigation lights? Torches and spare batteries?
Update your safety equipment list and position chart. Check sea cocks and are the bungs secure next to each sea cock?
Another item to check is the sail bag zips - are they runing free? (written by a formed foredeck crew!)
