It's still available, and still free...




There is also a copy of the inspector checklist which you can download, here:




According to this, BP doesn't need a stability certificate to get Cat 1, but rather,


"For non racing yachts the inspectors may use their discretion regarding stability, providing that they are satisfied the vessel is self righting from a knockdown that submerges the masthead."


- YNZ Safety Regulations of Sailing 2017-2020, Page 24, part 6.0.


I thought this was previously a sticking point?

That's correct. Currently. But until recently I didn't have to do their pointless how to get rescued course either. Now that has changed. I don't trust them not to include this in future. Meantime racing is out for me.

Oops, my bad, didn't think to look under "Racing".  Best I buy something made from carbon fibre, paint it a shade of fluorescent and get with the program....


I have gone ahead and added links to the Recreational section, which should hopefully help people find the information easier.
