Questions about your own boat and measurement?

For information about your own boat, please contact your class association.

Do you have class measurers??

Sail Canada encourages class associations to send along the names of current provincial, national and international class measurers to Sail Canada. Please touch base with racing@sailing.ca.

Report on Measurement Discussion, January 20 2002: What is measuring all about?

David Sprague (Vice Chair of ISAF Class Committee, Chair of International Measurement Subcommittee, Sail Canada Senior Vice President) led this discussion which focussed upon the role of the ISAF Equipment Rules of Sailing, measurement activities occuring in Canada currently, as well proposed ways measurement could be improved in Canada. Attendees included an international Jury Member, one- design class measurers, a PHRF rep and Sail Canada staff.

A general consensus gained included a)ensuring Sail Canada has accurate info at the office with regards to measurers for each class/as well as other "measurement people resources", b)need to expose more people (and youth) to measurement prior to international competition at domestic regattas, c)need for a basic/how to document for people starting out with measurement, and d) general mentorship opportunities.
