Download: Australian Sailing Special Regulations

 

The sport of sailing in Australia has a strong reputation for self-management of safety. An important tool for this is the Special Regulations, whose purpose is to establish uniform minimum equipment, accommodation and training standards for racing boats.

The Special Regulations can also act as a guide for cruising boats. Special Regulations do not replace, but rather supplement the requirements of government authorities, the Racing Rules of Sailing and the rules of class associations and rating systems. We suggest also checking your local regulatory guidelines here.

All Burke safety equipment is designed to conform to all special regulations where required.
