Thank you for choosing a Farr 40 One Design. The quality of our racing concept is totally reliant on Boat owners using the same equipment to place emphasis on sailing ability rather than expensive equipment. The success of our Class can be attributed to the collective belief from all owners to comply to our rules and constitution.

We encourage you to read and understand these rules and urge your representative and crew to become familiar with them. As a boat owner you will be responsible, through the Owners’ Association, with guidance from the Management Group, for further development of the rule, which in turn will maintain a healthy future for the Class. The rules state that the Owner (or charterer) must be a member of the Farr 40 One Design Owners Association to race in any Farr 40 One Design Class event.

A One Design Certificate will be issued to you by the Chief Measurer and you will be required to renew this annually as outlined in the Class rules. It is also required that a copy of these rules and a current One Design certificate be on board the boat at all times, whilst racing One Design. This is to ensure the One Design status is kept at the forefront of all competitors’ minds.

As a new Farr 40 Owners and/or Owner that need refreshing we encourage you to know the rules and if you have any queries, please contact the Australian Class Administrator, Jennie Hughes on 0407 387 302.
