Yes. Even though your are registered in another country (outside NZL), you are required to have a current Yachting New Zealand Category 1 certificate. YNZ approved the NOR which included a requirement for all yachts to have a current certificate. This inspection along with the certificate must be completed no earlier than 30 days prior to the start of the race. A foreign registered vessel does not need a Maritime New Zealand Safety Inspection Certificate Number 12409.
