Annual Keelboat Weighing Day – AMS and IRC – Sunday 15 September

Thursday, 1st August 2019

Yacht Racing Services Association Inc. have been weighing boats since 1998 and through the fantastic support of Hydralift Cranes and Sandringham Yacht Club, we have been able to provide to Victorian Owners, the best and most cost effective weighing service in Australia,.

With the support of our Volunteers, Owners and the Keelboat Clubs we are able to organise the day in a very efficient manner and we plan the event on the basis of weighing six boats each hour – one every 10 minutes. This reduces the costs to Owners to a fraction of the cost incurred in other States.

The cost of the weighing per boat will be advised by email after registration closes, as it depends on the number of boats involved. We expect that it will still be less than $200.

We weigh all boats in “empty” configuration and this means that the IRC weight is provided as well. The AMS weight is the empty weight plus the weight of the AMS permitted gear, which is weighed in a basket on the club crane.
