Vessel Compliance Responsibility
It is the responsibility of each vessel to ensure they continue to comply in every respect with the category the boat is competing in. 

The Organising Authority, the Club or the Equipment Auditors will not perform ongoing checks or confirm compliance. The responsibility remains with the vessel – the audit only verifies that the equipment is on board at the time of the inspection.

Vessels should refer to the Australian Sailing Special regulations and ensure that all equipment remains on the boat, is kept in good working order and that equipment is replaced or repaired as necessary.
