Compulsory sling inspections

As part of your 2019/20 equipment audits, the club requires that the lifting slings for RSYS hardstand boats must be inspected and tagged at least annually, by an approved sling servicing agent.

On Saturday 24 August (only) 9am to 12pm, the Sailing Office has organised a representative from ‘All Lifting’ to be onsite to inspect and tag slings as proof of inspection. This service is free of charge.

If you or a representative from your boat, are unable to attend the equipment audit on this day, you have a few options:

- Organise someone else on 24 August to have your slings inspected and tagged on your behalf
- Take your slings to an approved sling inspector and have them inspect and tag your slings. 'Sydney Lifting Equipment' in Brookvale is able to inspect slings. Please note SLE will charge you for this.
- For new slings, auditors will accept a purchase receipt not more than 8 weeks prior to the date of your audit in lieu of a sling inspection. You must present this receipt at the time of the audit.
