Personal Sail Numbers
The Association offers the option of personal sail numbers to members.
Rules that control identification on sails may be found in the Racing Rules of Sailing – Appendix G – Identification on Sails as modified by Appendix E – Radio Controlled Boat Racing Rules paragraph E8.
These rules allow owners to have their own personal sail number (two digit numbers).
The ISAF Identification on Sails rules apply to recognized international radio yacht classes and may also be used for classes recognized by the CRYA.
An owner may use a PSN for any class which the owner sails.
It should be noted that having a PSN does not bestow any privileges in the event of a sail number clash at events. This is based on a first come basis. The race committee have the responsibility to resolve the clash as found in RRS E8.(b).5
