DH Farallones? Plan on Having an EPIRB . . .

You’d better have your EPIRB certificate ready for the DH Farallones skippers’ meeting or you won’t get to play.

All skippers planning to do the Bay Area Multihull Association‘s Doublehanded Farallones are required to have a registered 406 MHz EPIRB aboard for the race on April 3. We don’t care if you beg, borrow, rent or buy one of the devices (but please don’t steal one), just make sure that you have it registered and have your certficate in hand at the skippers’ meeting (optional attendance) next Wednesday at 7:30 p.m. at the Oakland YC. You can find full details, as well as updated SIs at the link above. And, if you’re reading this and know someone who might not otherwise get this information online, please take the time to give them a phone call to let them know!
