From the RRC's, I take it that there is no requirement for a GPS or category specific EPIRB.

Hello Joe, It must be a 406 EPIRB that floats. PLB's don't count. If you are racing in 2016 in the SF Bay YRA offshore series consider the change in 2016. Here is there rule for reference:

23. 406MHz EPIRB or PLB properly registered to the yacht (EPIRB) or owner (PLB) is required. After
1/1/2016, this device must be self locating.
