RS21 Class Association
2022 RS21 World Championship Equipment Inspection

At the World Championship we will be checking certain items of equipment for class rule compliance to ensure we have the level playing field you expect from the RS21. To do this, we need some help from you.

Please familiarise yourself with the map shared in yesterday’s email and also on Telegram as you will find all locations are marked to help you navigate your way around. If this doesn’t work, see map at the bottom of this page. 

You have the locations on the map:

  • Race office and Registrations
  • Equipment inspection

When you arrive in Biograd please come straight to Race Office and registrations to be given your craning slot and timing for equipment inspection.

At this point of registration, you will be given a form that needs to be completed, the form will also include stickers. We ask that you have your first aid kit and VHF radio with you ready to show, this will allow us to sign this part off on your form.

At this point of registration, you will have the option to purchase the required country flag stickers for your mainsail, the cost of the flag stickers will be €15. We also have a limited number of protest flags available to loan for a €10 deposit. We can only accept cash for these 2 purchases so please come prepared.

Next, you will be required to take your sails to the pool area close to the Ilirija Hotel, this will allow equipment inspectors to check your sails and ensure sail numbers are correctly applied. At this stage, we will apply your country flag sticker to your mainsail. Please remember you are only allowed to use one mainsail and one jib for the event, two of your stickers will be used to identify which sails you have chosen to use for the event. If there is a need to change a sail due to damage then you must request this from the Technical Committee. You are allowed to carry a spare gennaker on board while racing but can only use it when your primary sail is damaged. To track which sail is which, we will stamp the port clew of your primary gennaker, if you choose to carry a spare gennaker, then you need to get it stamped on the starboard clew to show that it is a spare sail.

When you bring your sails for checking, please also bring your forestay. This will be measured to ensure it is within tolerance and once it has been checked, a sticker will be added to the wire. You may not change this forestay after this point without approval from the Technical committee.

Once your sails and forestay have had their event marks placed on them, you can proceed to the craning area with your boat. Here, we will check the profile of your keel, the number of purchases in your Cunningham and vang, the location of your battery for the motor and the tension of your backrests. We will also check that you have your Personal Floatation Devices on board.

If you plan to launch before equipment inspection, then please contact us to see if it is possible to arrange for keel profiles and forestays to be checked beforehand. There is also the option to have equipment inspection carried out on Monday if you wish.

A brief summary of items to be checked:

•             Forestay length

•             Guardrail tension

•             Keels to profile

•             Battery location

•             Safety kit (first aid and VHF)

•             Personal Floatation devices

•             No of purchase in vang and Cunningham

•             Flag and sail number positions on mainsails

 

Please note, post-race inspections may be carried out on the water and if directed at the end of the day, you may be asked to quarantine before returning to your berth, if you are asked to quarantine, you may not leave the boat without permission nor take anything off or put anything on board.

Equipment Inspection should not be onerous nor scary, we are here to ensure that everyone is playing on a level playing field and should you have any questions then do please feel free to ask.
