Offshore Sail Numbers
Sail numbers are required for boat identification while racing and are useful for safety purposes. Sailboat owners must apply to the CYA for a sail number unless the boat is affiliated with a CYA member class association that issues its own sail numbers.
Offshore sail numbers may be obtained by applying to the CYA. BC and Alberta residents may contact BC Sailing to purchase their number.
