    Default NCORC and SAS course

    I'm still confused about the SAS requirement for a doublehanded entry:

    4.3 At least 30% of those aboard, including the person in charge, shall have attended a US Sailing sanctioned Safety at Sea Seminar within the last 5 years, or other course accepted by the NCORC.

    Does that mean both have to do the course or just the skipper?

    I'd say just the skipper alone was enough to satisfy the requirement.

    Regulations aside, it is problematic to sail with a crew who cannot handle the boat by themselves. If the skipper goes overboard, both are in serious trouble.

    In an e-mail at the beginning of the season, Andy Newell (OYRA chair and a NorCalORC guy) said they round up at .5 (people). So in his case, with 8 crew he needs 2.4 (so 2) to attend the seminar.

    For doublehanders, .6 people need to attend, so just one.

    That's also why it says 30% "including the person in charge." Since we know Chris is in charge, she needs to attend.
