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.

A big thank you to Ron Hunt and his team of measurers for their dedication and fantastic efforts at the National Championships in Sidmouth this year. Those of you who have been to recent National Championships will have noticed increasing quality and strictness in measurement.
