WASZP is determined to control the strict one-design nature of the WASZP meaning that every boat has the same performance. Of course, there is slight tolerance for personal preference on systems however these are still tight and articulated in the Class Rules. As per the Perth WASZP Games, we will be performing equipment checks on the boats at the European Championships. We have attached the Equipment check form so you can make your customers aware of how your boat must be presented. This is incredibly important for the integrity of the class.
