Updated Yachting Australia Anti-Doping Policy

Yachting Australia Board recently adopted a revised version of the Yachting Australia Anti-Doping Policy, which took effect on 1 January 2015. The key revisions are set out in this letter.

Importantly, may I emphasise that this Policy applies to Yachting Australia and all of its member or affiliate organisations, meaning it applies to all Clubs and Classes including their members and individuals who compete in events, races, training and other sailing activities organised by Clubs, Classes and individuals. 

Therefore to ensure the Policy is given full effect, the Yachting Australia Board has approved an Amendment to the Racing Rules of Sailing so as to be able to enforce this Policy at all levels of competitive sailing as is required by legislation, the ASC and the AOC.
