Race document templates

If you are organising racing and regattas, we recommend you use the following formats developed by our race management committee for both your notice of race and your sailing instructions or Appendix S supplementary sailing instructions.​

Race Management Apps

These free apps, developed by YNZ club members, are useful tools to help make race management easier for race officers and their team.

  • Buoy Zone - This app makes it easy to lay the perfect course in minutes- no GPS required!
  • Voice Sail Start Timer- This app take the tedium out of the timekeeper’s role on a signal vessel and take the mystery out of start sequences.
