CSA TO NO LONGER PROVIDE MINIMUM SAFETY REQUIREMENTS
Friday 11th July 2014

The Caribbean Sailing Association has made the decision to no longer provide Minimum Safety Requirements for regattas in the Caribbean. It was discussed and recognized at the 2013 Annual General Meeting that this important function is being addressed by several other sailing organizations at a much greater level, and it was therefore voted that the CSA should remove itself following the 2014 racing season. This announcement is being made now so that organizers can include reference to the appropriate rules in their Notices of Race for 2015 events.

Regatta organizers are now encouraged to look at the existing available guidelines and select those that best suit their event(s) and the conditions they will be sailing under. They are encouraged to further customize chosen guidelines as they see fit, to ensure the right level of safety requirements are in place for their particular event.

Two of the leading organizations that have recently addressed Safety Regulations and offer several categories to choose from are ISAF and US Sailing. Their regulations can be found at http://www.sailing.org/specialregs and http://www.ussailing.org/safety/equipment-and-requirements.
