● New Short-Handed Certificate Application

A Short-Handed certificate can only be issued to boats holding current year valid primary, i.e., “full crew”, certificates.

Short-Handed Certificates are for those who participate in events for which the Notice of Race has designated short handed classes for no more than two crew. The Short-Handed Certificate reflects changes to the boat’s configuration more appropriate for short-handed crew. See Rule 8.2.1.

The Short-Handed Certificate will only vary from the primary certificate with respect to mainsail widths, headsail dimensions, single furling headsail allowance, SPA, STL/SPL, spinnaker pole/bowsprit, moveable ballast and variable ballast. In other words, if no configuration changes as above are made, the TCC on the short-handed certificate would be identical to that for the primary, full crew certificate.
