Safety & Race Regulations



AOCRA has an extremely strong safety record Australia wide - which we are all very proud of and as a Zone, very proactive in maintaining.

At all times, whether training or racing, all members must adhere to the Maritime Safety regulations.  In addition, AOCRA's rules have provided further stringent regulations to ensure the safety of our members.  

Full details of AOCRA's safety procedures and training/racing rules can be found in the AOCRA Rules - Version April 2021.  We strongly recommend that all members and volunteers read and become familiar with these rules.

All NQ Zone clubs are reminded that it is a Qld Government requirement that their Member Protection Policy be reviewed annually. Click here for a copy -  AOCRA Member Protection Policy - October 2022.

The Zone has made certain zone-specific rules to cater to the unique racing conditions/club structures in North Queensland.  Click here for details of these additional rules (Matters for Attention 2023).
