Changing from:-

Fail Safe Requirements[/b]

Radio Control systems with an integrated Fail safe must use and demonstrate the operation of the Fail Safe during scrutineering with the engine running.
o Effective January 1st 2017, all Petrol powered boats running in Offshore events must be protected against zero voltage receiver failure by using an ignition coil disabling system.

 The effectiveness of the Ignition coil disabling system must be demonstrated during scrutineering with the engine running.
o Effective January 1st 2018 all Petrol powered boats running in either offshore or oval events must be protected against zero voltage receiver failure by using an ignition coil disabling system.
 The effectiveness of the Ignition coil disabling system must be demonstrated during scrutineering with the engine running.

[b]IT HAS BEEN BROUGHT TO THE COMMITTEE’S ATTENTION THAT ON ONE OCCASION A COMPETITOR WHO HAD KILL SWITCH ISSUES , DISCONNECTED HIS IGNITION KILL SWITCH IN ORDER THAT HE COULD CONTINUE RACING.
THIS WAS NOT MADE KNOWN TO THE RACE OFFICIALS UNTIL AFTER THE EVENT.

As this is a health and safety issue and breaking the NZMPBA rules It is the committee’s unanimous decision that in future should any competitor be found guilty of doing this they will lose all points gained at that regatta and as well be stood down for the following two sanctioned regattas on the NZMPBA Calendar for that year.

Fail Safe Requirements

Radio Control systems with an integrated Fail safe must use and demonstrate the operation of the Fail Safe during scrutineering with the engine running.
All Petrol powered boats must be protected against zero voltage receiver failure by using an ignition coil disabling system.
The effectiveness of the Ignition coil disabling system must be demonstrated during scrutineering with the engine running by turning the receiver off, then the receiver must be turned back on, engine to be restarted and then the engine must stop when the Transmitter is turned off.

As this is a health and safety issue and breaking the NZMPBA rules , should any competitor be found guilty of disconnecting an ignition disabling device, in order to continue racing, they will lose all points gained at that regatta and as well be stood down for the following two sanctioned regattas on the NZMPBA Calendar for that year.
