Have you seen the RYA press release about the Merchant Shipping Regulations?

This is madness!

Sounds like it's just a bit of a balls-up. Can't imagine they will enforce it
on us lot. All a bit big brother, really.

That will cost them a fortune to log all the incidents if we follow the letter of the law.

It would be like everyone admitting to the police every time they exceed the speed limit!!

Oh this could be very amusing - if they post an email address for you to register your incidents we could seriously overload them with paperwork and then maybe they would learn not to by-pass the RYA in their decisions.

Can you imagine every sailor in the country writing into report a capsize, collision, grounding, mark hitting....the ~Hunter 707's could keep them busy for a month after just one race!

Sorry for being a little slow, but......

How did this 'slip' through the RYA's far reaching net.

RYA do a fab job this is not a dig at them

Can you imagine if the letter of this was followed at a sailing school and you were sent to prison for every capsise practice session .  Team and match racing would be practiacally illegal as well .  I can understand it to some extent for commertial vessels cut how cann a dinghy be included in a merchant shipping act??? Its just plane stupid (guess that explains it then!)

Besides if noone says anything then the authorities will not know about an incident and people will get away with it. 

Also, will this apply to inland waters?
