Answered: Onboard Camera Legality

Hello Karthik,

Is the use of a small onboard camera (Such as a GoPro) used exclusively for recording matches, legal? This question has been asked so many times over the past few years, but I wanted to check again for the new season.

As usual, there would be no streaming and it would have no purpose other than recording for later use (It would not be used as weight/ballast).


This is legal, with the provided caveats.

  • All wireless communication functionality on the camera is disabled.
  • The camera is not excessive large such that it’s acting as ballast. (A standard “GoPro” sized camera is acceptable)
