Important Information on Seasonal Racing Marks
What you need to know before you deploy your buoy
Every seasonal racing mark deployed for sailing, swimming, or any marine activity requires a Statutory Sanction form to be completed by your Local Lighthouse Authority (usually your local port authority or County Council).
