According to the Racing Rules of Sailing (RRS- 75), boats shall be entered in a race by a member of a club or other organisations affiliated to a World Sailing member national authority; such as a club or organisation, or a member of a World Sailing national authority.
With immediate effect, Singapore Sailing Federation (SSF) will begin checking for proof of club membership (eg. valid membership numbers and membership cards etc) from January 2023. From July 2023, SSF will reject entries to events if they are unable to establish proof of compliance with RRS 75.
In relation to this development, the Ministry of Education (MOE) has informed Singapore Sailing Federation that they are not in a position to enter boats for a race even though they are affiliated to SSF. As such, students belonging to schools under the MOE will need to join as members of other clubs or organisations affiliated to SSF to be eligible to race at events sanctioned by SSF. To facilitate sailors and parents, a list of SSF affiliates can be found here: https://sailing.org.sg/affiliates.
