Well, certification control and equipment inspection are to achieve different things. Certification control gives approval for equipment to be used for racing. That equipment is certified is however not proof that the equipment is legal, only that the official measurer carrying out the certification...

New ERS terms

Dont confuse Event Measurement with Fundamental Measurement. Sorry, my mind missed the "event" (not the first time!). It is certainly easy to confuse these terms and this is the reason why these, and other related terms, are amended in the current Equipment Rules of Sailing. The concept of "measure...

Hi again Eric,
Eric wrote:And if I take part in the "Micro-Magic World Championship" ? What happens then?
Then you risk loosing your ISAF eligibility. And if you loose your ISAF eligibility you cannot take part in any event - not only IOM events - covered by ISAF regulation 19.3 quoted below.

As has been explained, the issue is not that a Naviga event is "prohibited" (ISAF has no power to do that!), but only that a sailor must choose whether to sail under an ISAF umbrella or a Naviga umbrella, because ISAF does not accept that a sailor can do both at "world championship" level. I agree ...

Hi Roy As far as I know, there is absolutely no way that a race committee in one country can know if the marks on the sail were placed there by an official measurer of another country.

Registration, certification control and certification are territory issues. ISAF regards the MNA as the sole authority for what happens in the MNA’s country and the ERS definitions and rules reflect this. To carry out certification control the measurer has to be appointed or recognised by the MNA....

The difference with gauge measurement is not a problem to check but that different hull forms will permit different actual hull and boat draught. A gauge rule will thereby drive design development. Measurement from waterplane and measurement with a gauge are not compatible methods and only class own...

Re: How to get recognized as an IOM fleet?

1. Do the IOM fleet have to pay a fee to the NSA? (if so how much?) This is up to the Member National Authority – using ISAF nomenclature – to decide. Usually MNAs require a national class association – which your fleet probably will be recognised as – to pay a class association fee. 2. Doe...

Yes, but I would be surprised if an interpretation would find metal as an allowed material within glass fibre reinforced plastic.
