Regarding sail measurements--we have not been marking old spinnakers as "USED" for quite some time, as there hasn't been a problem in the fleet of anyone buying lots of new or specialty spinnakers. We could reinstate this practice if it becomes an issue.

Likewise, if ordering sails from a local reputable sailmaker, just remind them to ensure the sails are class legal and for them to refer to class rules or ask a fleet measurer if there are any questions.

Typically we only remeasure / re-weigh a boat if it has been modified or considerable work done on it. We can measure at request as well. At nationals, there are often spot checks for lifelines, minimum equipment, etc. The intent is to have everyone racing, so minor infractions are just brought to the attention of the owner.

If anyone has any questions about measurement, feel free to ask Will or Brendan.
