Inspection day and check list make Cat 3 process easier


Yachting New Zealand and the New Zealand Multihull Yacht Club have teamed up to organise an inspection day for boats seeking to reach safety standard Category 3 for the Great Race on Friday 20 October.

The Cat 3 inspection Day will run on a new date of Monday 9 October.

An inspector will be available for boats berthed at Westhaven Marina. The cost of the inspection will be $150 (inc gst) - around a $100 saving on average. (Note that If the boat fails the inspection it will go into the regular system and the boat owner or skipper will need to rebook an inspector)

The aim of the inspection day is to ensure that boats are well prepared and the need for reinspection is minimised.

Yachting NZ have also prepared a Cat 3 checklist to assist with obtaining your Cat 3 certificate. Please consult Yachting New Zealand Safety Regulations for a full list of design requirements and description of items.

To register your interest in booking an inspection please email ccinfo@coastalclassic.co.nz advising your boat name, location at Westhaven and preferred time or phone Phone Angus Willison Yachting New Zealand 021 560 011 to make bookings.
