TECHNICAL International Measurers
Racing of all classes of sailing boat under the Racing Rules of Sailing (RRS) and Equipment Rules of Sailing (ERS) is based on the assumption that each boat complies with its Class Rules, the class rules complementing the RRS-ERS by defining the boat and equipment that may be used. Normally it is necessary to measure the physical dimensions of a boat, its equipment and sails to establish if it complies with the class rules and this is the principal role of the "measurer".
Measurers therefore play a fundamental role in the organization of sailboat racing, and their ability to apply the class rules correctly and accurately is essential. Equipment must be measured for certification before being used for racing, but it is normally inspected at events as well.
The following measurers are World Sailing International Measurers, which means they are appointed by World Sailing and their role is to lead the inspection at the Class major events and also to measure new mould prototypes for approval:
