CORA is cracking down on ineligible boats, but we do want to be reasonable. Here is the policy effective immediately:
- Boats that have expired or do not have current waivers will be scored DNS per Sailing Instruction 2.2. Please note you must give CORA a new signed waiver every year with your membership renewal.
- We will be available to accept payment/waivers before the trophy presentation, and will gladly renew you then so you can get your trophy. We will also have waivers available for you to sign. Otherwise you will not receive a trophy if you would have otherwise placed. Everyone will move up a "slot" and your trophy will go to someone else.
- For purposes of your series score, you may renew/sign a waiver for up to two weeks after the race and be scored retroactively. Trophies will not be exchanged.
- You can check on your eligibilty online using the status column of our scratch sheet. If you're listed with a status or not listed at all, please contact a board member immediately.
We want to provide a responsible racing environment for all competitors. We want to ensure that each boat is insured up to the limits described in the wavier.
Just like any other regatta, you have to pay to play. Boats who do not pay cannot win. CORA is no different (just a heck of a lot cheaper!).
We hope you will appreciate our efforts to make things fair and ensure that the people you are racing with are insured.
