There are two days allocated for measuring boats. This includes all day Saturday (4th) and the morning of the Sunday. Each boat is required to reserve a timeslot below (only one please) of when they would like to have their boat measured. If the boat is not available at that time, it will be offered to any other boat ready to be measured.
Boats will be required to confirm their sail numbers, and have their hull weighed. If the measurers decide to measure any other piece of equipment, they will notify you when you arrive for your time slot.
If you appreciate the work done by your measurers, please shout them a beer for their time and effort. Note that they will not be told who shouted them the beers for the sake of transparency.
There will be measuring conducted on Saturday 4th January from 9:30am to 4:30pm and on Sunday 5th January from 8am to 11am. Sails must be nominated in the RaceHub Registration form.
Any skiff which is not ready for measurement at their booked time will forfeit their booking and will be added to the end of the overflow queue.
Skiffs will be presented for measurement in compliance with rule 6 of the Class rules which states:
6.1 The minimum weight of a skiff shall be 72 kilograms.
