Finding A Measurer

Finding a Measurer

Owners and competitors will need to be sure their boats have a valid certificate and all their sails are measured before the start of the Europeans in Falmouth.  The Event Measurer is there to check that certificates are valid and that sails have been measured, and competitors must not assume he will have the time to carry out any initial measurement of sails that are not already measured. Note that for a valid measurement, the Class Rule requires that any sail first measured after 1 May 2010 must have an ISMA sail royalty label.  Labels can be obtained from the ISMA Treasurer Matt Brooks at

The Royal Yachting Association has approved a number of measurers for the class, any one of whom is authorised to measure Six Metres in the UK.  Their details are shown on the RYA’s website.
