Yacht design category and sailing area
When you buy a yacht of your own, it does not mean that you can drive your yacht anywhere. Whether it is from a regulatory perspective or your own safety considerations, a yacht must have her specific sailing area. China's maritime regulations divide the waters into two parts: the sea and the inland river. Considering that the yacht is small, the navigation area that can be involved in the sea is only the coastal navigation area; and the inland rivers are divided into Class A, Class B and Class C navigation areas according to the level of wind and waves. The ISO standard divides yacht design categories into A, B, C and D, corresponding to different sailing areas. Therefore, before buying a yacht, you should know the sailing area of your waters and choose a yacht that meets its sailing area requirements. Attachment: yacht design category and its corresponding sailing area Class A: refers to yachts sailing on the sea not exceeding 20nm from the shore (the Taiwan Strait of China and similar waters not exceeding 10nm from the shore). Category B: refers to yachts sailing in the following waters: (1) Coastal coasts and islands, and sea areas surrounded by islands and islands with better shelter conditions and smaller waves. The distance between islands and the coast within the sea area is no more than 10nm; or in waters no more than 10nm from the shore, and restricted to sea conditions where the wind level does not exceed 6 (Pu's wind level) and the visual wave height does not exceed 2m Navigate down; (2) Inland river A-level navigation area. Category C: refers to yachts sailing in the following waters: (1) Waters not more than 5nm away from the shore, and restricted to navigation in sea conditions where the wind level does not exceed 6 (Pu's wind level) and the visual wave height does not exceed 1m; (2) Inland river B-level navigation area. Category D: Sailing and yachts in the C-class navigation area of inland waters The distance to shore, wave height and wind level specified by each category indicated by the international general standards are different from the Chinese regulations. Shipowners are requested to pay attention to the differences in their certificates in the process of purchase and use to ensure the safety of navigation.
