Membership of BISMA

There are several levels of membership:

  • Membership of BISMA
  • ISMA fee (Boats are required to be registered with ISMA to be eligible to race in International events including UK events open to International participants - each registration contributes one vote to the block vote of the BISMA representative during ISMA voting. Boats under restoration or not in class need not be registered with ISMA)
  • Associate Membership for those interested in the class or with boats not in class or under restoration
  • Friends of the class - free - to receive occasional newsletters, etc - see here


Full details are explained on the application form which can be downloaded here including arrangements for shared ownership and multiple boats. Then send to the class secretary.

Please note also that a sail tax is payable to ISMA for all new sails purchased - sailmakers should maintain a stock of labels to be affixed to each sail and will be checked during the equipment check at all major events.
