FAQs

Required Equipment

  • We suggest yachts are equipped to ORC CAT3 standard. We will offer advice on how to achieve this. It is not onerous and a sensible yacht should already be similarly equipped.

A Risk Assessment document will be available. However, we are mitigating risks by:

  • We are not racing.
  • Only sailing in daylight.
  • We will not go if the forecast indicates winds above F5.
  • We are providing regular VHF monitoring with supporting yachts within a few miles
