We take integity seriously because it's the right thing to do.  You can read our policies here

We would also like to bring to your attention the Code of Conduct for this event.

Parent/Guardian Code of Conduct

Parents should: 
•    Remember that children participate in sailing or boating for their enjoyment, not yours. 
•    Encourage children to participate, not force them. 
•    Focus on the child’s efforts and performance rather than winning or losing. 
•    Encourage children to sail or boat according to the rules and to settle disagreements without resorting to hostility, violence or abuse. 
•    Never ridicule or yell at a child for making a mistake or losing a race. 
•    Remember that children learn best by example. Appreciate good performances and skills displayed by all participants. 
•    Support all efforts to eliminate verbal and physical abuse from sport. 
•    Respect officials’ decisions and teach children to do likewise. 
•    Show appreciation of the efforts of volunteer coaches, officials, administrators and other helpers as without them there would be no sport for your children to participate in. 
•    Respect the rights, dignity and worth of every person regardless of their gender, ability, cultural background or religion.

Sailing Participant Code of Conduct

Competitors are expected to comply with the Basic Principle outlined in the Racing Rules of Sailing. 
As a competitor you shall: 
•    Be tolerant of other users of the waterways and surrounding environs. 
•    Never argue with an official.

•    Not abuse other crew members. 
•    Abide by the Australian Sailing Anti-Doping Policy. 
•    Work equally hard for yourself and/or your crew. Your boat’s performance will benefit and so will you. 
•    Be a good sport. Applaud your opponents when they get one up on you. 
•    Treat all participants as you like to be treated. Do not bully or try to take an unfair advantage of another competitor. 
•    Cooperate with your fellow sailors/boating participants, without them there would be no competition.
