The RORC Transatlantic Race Sailing Instructions ensure that all yachts comply with World Sailing's Offshore Special Regulations Category One for safety at sea. In addition, all yachts must comply with RORC Prescriptions and carry a Satellite phone. Anthea and Stephen Weekes have inspected the yachts prior to departure for all four editions of the race.
“The standard is very high and they have all thought through their safety procedures very carefully,” explained Anthea Weekes. “There are professional crews and amateur crews in this race, but they all appreciate going through the checklist. The important thing is that they have all thought about scenarios and they all have a plan.”
