2021 Weighing Day

 

Annual Keelboat Weighing Day – AMS, ORCc and IRC

 

At last we are emerging from the pandemic (at time of writing) and yacht racing is back in business.

 

The annual boat weighing day for measurement rating certificates will be held at Sandringham Yacht Club

 

We have been weighing boats since 1998 and through the fantastic support of Hydralift Cranes and Sandringham Yacht Club, we have been able to provide to Victorian Owners, the best and most cost effective weighing service in Australia,

 

With the support of our Volunteers, Owners and the Keelboat Clubs we are able to organise the day in a very efficient manner and we plan the event on the basis of weighing six boats each hour - one every 10 minutes. This reduces the costs to Owners to a fraction of the cost incurred in other States.

 

We expect that the cost of the weighing will be $250 per boat.

 

We weigh all boats in “empty” configuration, and this means that the ORCc and IRC weight is provided as well. The AMS weight is the empty weight plus the weight of the AMS permitted gear, which is weighed separately in a basket on the club crane.

 

Please call 0408 400 278 or email us at:  info@raceyachts.org if there are any queries or to make a time slot booking. Boats will be allocated a time slot of one hour during which six boats will be scheduled to be weighed.

 

Thank you for your support.

 

Regards,
