Teams making final preparations...

For the intrepid teams that are currently making their final preparations for the race, please keep in mind that both F18s and N20s need to be prepared to demonstrate that their boats and sails meet class rules.  For F18s, that can mean certificates.  In addition, it is important to note that the SIs will be updated in the next day or so.  With regard to PFD requirements, the SIs are quite clear.  Modifying a USCG-approved PFD for the purpose of securing safety gear or Camelbak-style bladders does not, in the opinion of the Tybee 500 management, nullify the USCG certification for the purposes of meeting the rule.
