During recent championships many boats were presented for measurement and inspection that were not in accord with ILCA class rules. This is a frustrating experience for all concerned and causes delays in the measurement queues. Often these non-compliances involve significant effort and are difficult to correct away from home.
The placement of sail numbers and letters, Laser 4.7 mast bend, location of radial mast bottom section inner sleeve and boat signage are things that can be checked and corrected before arriving at the Laser Championships. The following user guides will be used by the measurers at Devonport, Tasmania.
Consequently, entrants are advised to check and correct if necessary their sail signage and masts. Should any additional issues arise refer to ILCA 2018 Handbook, the ILCA website or your district measurer.
