Hi Brendan,

Thanks for the info. Very helpful. I am all about compliance but I wasn't sure how hard core/strict these rules were enforced. From prior experience it seems to not be very strict but I am usually wrong when i assume :-).

The sailmaker is very familiar with the class and I don't suspect there will be any issues with measurements.

Thanks, Jason

:: 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.
