The RYA are running Sail Measurement Courses over the winter that might be of interest to existing Class Measurers in need of re-validation or prospective measurers.

The Course at Carsington Sailing Club happening on 2nd December 2017 closes this week, so it would be great to confirm any other attendees as soon as possible.
