On those used spinnakers, a lot fo them are new and designed a long time ago and should have no problem passing as new? That's the way I always played it.

:: Hi Brendan,

:: The sailmaker is very familiar with the class and I

:: :: The intent is to have everyone racing, so minor

:: :: :: :: Hi Everyone,
:: :: :: ::
:: :: :: :: Just curious to know when measurements will be happening
:: :: :: :: for Nationals. I have a used spinnaker or 2 that I would
:: :: :: :: like to get measured/marked as "used" for my boat since
:: :: :: :: I am hoping to make 2017 Nationals with my boat. If
:: :: :: :: someone knows the date(s) for Nationals measurement,
:: :: :: :: that would be very helpful with regards to planning.
:: :: :: ::
:: :: :: :: Thanks,
