As the countdown continues towards to 2019 race, we wanted to share a little reminder of some of the important upcoming dates, to help you along with your preparations.
We hope you will all have seen these dates in the last newsletter – please get in touch if you don’t appear to be on the list and we’ll ensure you are added. As you can imagine, there is going to be more and more information to share as the weeks go by and we approach 1st June, so please do keep an eye out for our communications.
15th April 2019 – Last date for IRC Certificates to be emailed
1st May 2019 – Qualifying passage self declaration and Declaration of Compliance
We will have sent to you a form for completion for you to self certify that you have completed the required qualifying passage and that you, your boat and other crew member (if appropriate) are compliant with the race requirements stated in the NOR. We need it back by this date.
If there are some details that you have not yet achieved or know by this time they can be noted as accepted information deficiencies on the form and the information provided by the next due date.
28th May or at Registration – Accepted information deficiencies provided
We are anticipating that this will only be information such as sat phone details, hire life raft details, etc. Possibly some last minute unforeseen changes due to unexpected events – sickness, gear renewals, etc.
As ever, if you have any queries or require any other help at any stage, you can take a look at the FAQs where you question may have already been answered, or get in touch with the Committee. Good luck with your pre-race activities!
