Sail Measurement Courses

The World Sailing Sail Measurement course is run in the UK by the RYA, typically between 6 or 7 courses are run per year around the UK with normally two of these at RYA House. The course follows the World Sailing method to sail measurement and covers principles of the Equipment Rules of Sailing.
