Jib Clews - how to measure them consistently

Hi All, Here's a topic that should generate some healthy discussion... Several but not all of the national class measurers were in attendance at the recent worlds in Toronto. After the opening ceremonies, we met in the RCYC bar and discussed the challenge of consistently measuring the sail area of h...

Re: Measurement Certificate & Joining the US Class

Just a head's up - if you are coming to the Worlds it would be best if you got all your sails measured and your certificate updated before you arrive by your official country measurer. The organizing authority for the 2013 Worlds will not be providing measurement services at the worlds. We will be c...

Toronto Update

We kicked off the Fourteen season in Toronto last night with the practice race for the RCYC Thursday evening series. Wind was 10-12 knots from the east, air temperature was 17 C but the water in the harbour was still about 9 degrees C (that's about 48 F for our American friends). It's hard to believ...
