This competition is open to all 12 Metre yachts with valid Measurement Certificates (including Appendix E Certificates) and current ITMA Membership status at the time of each Waypoints event in which they participate. All 12mR yachts worldwide may compete at any Waypoint event, whether within or outside of their home fleet.
