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.

 Could any existing sail measurers in need of re-validation or prospective sail measurers please come along if possible?

Passing the test will allow candidates to be approved by the RYA as an Official Sail Measurer. Attendance to the course is also a prerequisite for approval as a class measurer. The Course serves as both a re-validation course for current Sail Measurers and a qualifying course for new Sail Measurers.
