Fleet 1 Championships

The Fleet 1 Championships are being held Saturday and Sunday, September 30th and October 1, 2017.

Here are some of the eligibility requirements for those that wish to participate in this two-day, high-point regatta. (Note some of the deadline dates which is only days away)

  • Your boat has to be in the water continuously from August 1, 2017 until the start of the race.
  • Your boat must have a valid weight certificate issued by the Measurer. You can check to see if your boat has a certificate by going to the membership roster under the “Members” menu on this website, and clicking on your boat name. If you have a certificate, you will see it. If you don’t, contact the Fleet 1 Measurer to get a weight certificate for your boat.
  • Skippers must be an equal owner of the boat. That means, the Skipper’s name must be on the boat title as of August 1, 2017. Keep a copy of your boat’s registration in the event the Measurer wants to verify the ownership.
  • All members must be current with their membership dues. You can see when your membership expires by viewing your profile on the Membership Roster on this website.
  • Your crew must have crewed for you a minimum of twelve (12) races since the last championship. Also, the crew cannot be a paid-pro or full-time instructor for the past three (3) years.

The full text of the Fleet ByLaws can be found online here.

From the Class Bylaws:

III.A.   Class Yacht

 

 

III.A.1.   These Specifications define and control the Class Yacht that is the only boat permitted to race in Class Races.

Schock Corporation (Builder) are implied to be a part of these Rules.

 

 

III.A.2.   Any changes to the specifications of the Class Yacht must be communicated to the Class Measurer prior to their implementation, and subsequently approved by the Board.

 

 

III.B.    Measurement

III.B.3.   In the absence of the Class Measurer, Fleet or Assistant Class Measurer, the Class President may serve as Measurer.

 

 

III.C.    Registration

 

 

III.C.1.   No boat shall be deemed to be a Class Yacht until it has been completed with a building number assigned by the W.D. Schock Corporation and molded into the transom. Any alteration to the hull, keel, rudder or spars may invalidate the yacht.

The full text of the Class ByLaws can be found online here.

 

It is intended that strict adherence to the rules be maintained. However, a member with special circumstances, may petition the Fleet Board for a variance in these rules. This should be done well in advance of the event.

It is the responsibility of the competitor to conform with these rules. The Fleet Measurer may perform inspections before or after the race to validate rule conformance. Questions should be directed to the Fleet 1 Measurer.
