Default OPA Registration

So, Dee has been very nicely reminding everyone via Email to get your paperwork in. Hopatcong is going to have a ton of boats there, Registration will take you all day, if you dont get it in prior.
There are currently Three teams registered in Saris, Tug It, Mark Henderson. Now, I am no fan of threats or fines or all of the other possible solutions to getting your undivided attention.
So....Whatever teams are not registered in by April 20th. Will be involved in what we are going to call the bucket brigade. Post race, you will be washing all of the other boats, and waxing Franks trailer.
If you think I jest, some will remember Sponge Bob Ron. Or ask Ron P, Have a great Day. Smitty

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION FOR THE 2014 OPA RACING SEASON!

OPA will continue to step up our safety program this year to make sure that we have the safest racing events in the United States. Our Safety Director for OPA has asked that we check our Life Jackets for dates of last certification and if it is less than 3 years certified then you are good; but if you are past 3 years, then you should get them recertified ASAP.

In regards to Swim and Dunker tests this year, OPA will be the only certification that we will accept for you to race with OPA. Our Safety Instructor for OPA will be available to do Swim Tests and Dunker Tests throughout the OPA racing season. If you come to race with OPA you must have the certification prior to racing any race. The OPA Safety Instructor will at all the OPA races this season, you can check the Schedule of Events for dates and times for times at the pool for the Swin/Dunker testing. You must pay for the service (cash only) and you must hold onto your copy of Certification. OPA registrars will have a copy in their files, also along with our Safety Staff. Your certifications will be logged and recorded this year and there will be no exceptions. (Certification expires at the end of the calendar year).

In regards to Physicals, you need to have a document stating that you are fit to race this year with OPA. The only documents that are acceptable will be a medical note from your doctor on their prescription pad staing that it is ok for you to race with OPA for the 2014 season, a complete copy of your physical or CDL documents that are within 2 years from todays date. You MUST make a copy of the phycial to hand in to OPA registration for their files. We will not accept a copy of the card anymore, we need the documents that you were given when you did the medical exam. The only other document that is acceptable from OPA is a Class 3 license or better acquired from airports.​​ If your any of the above expires during to the 2014 race season you will be required to submit a new copy of your physical, CDL documentation, etc in order to complete the 2014 race season.

2014 OPA Official GPS Unit

We have been working very hard at making sure we have the latest in technology for reading speeds for breakouts in our 7 official OPA GPS classes. (These classes are Class 100 to Class 700.) In these 7 classes that OPA runs, we are making sure that everyone understands the rules of engagement with GPS units. It is the racers responsibility to make sure that the ATTI GPS unit is working properly at all times. We are allowing a second GPS as a backup in case your PRIMARY unit fails. It is at OPA's discretion to examine a boat when it comes out of the water after the race to inspect what was initially setup before you hit the water at the beginning of the race. Anyone deciding to not get that check if OPA has decided your boat is in question will be given last place with last place points. So please pay attention for when Race Control or an OPA Official asks you to remain with your boat for inspection.

GPS units available for use in OPA are the Shadow Tracker J2 and ATTI Premier Wireless GPS Unit. The Shadow Tracker J2 is the only unit that can be purchased as new. You will also need to put this unit into a pelican box so that it can be protected and permanently mounted in your boat.

GPS units will not be allowed to be moved from boat to boat. You will have the option to buy a Shadow Tracker J2 unit from the OPA GPS Official. The cost to purchase a Shadow Tracker J2 GPS unit is $400.00 plus $20.00 for the cost of a Pelican Box. You must contact Frank Vecce for all purchases regarding GPS units. Shadow Tracker J2 GPS units are also available to rent, contact Frank.

On site GPS registration will continue to be held at the race sites. This will also be the same place to hand in you GPS units to be read after the race. GPS registration times & place is available on the Schedule of Events for each race site.

To contact Frank Vecce, call 516.429.9858
