What safety category is this race and how are these categories determined?

We cannot direct the wind but we CAN adjust our sails

It’s Cat 3 plus
You must carry a life raft (dinghy on deck is NOT acceptable)
33% of your crew must have a current advanced sea survival certificate.
Sat phones I think are recommended but not mandatory

The catagory classification is usually determined by a conversation between the organising committee, YNZ and maybe the solas(?) committee. There are broad guidelines but you can make tweaks like this race and the coastal have done.

Thanks Ed, it can get pretty rough out there and it's good to see that sort of consideration being enforced. I hope everyone has a nice trip

Any finishers yet. Would be tough coming back up to Colville and not pleasant in the channel.

Bit of carnage at the start this morning, blown sails, one dismasting (start me up). Fresh breeze well aft going down, might not be so good coming back, likely upwind.

There is nothing, absolutely nothing, half so much worth doing, as simply messing about in boats
