Measurement Training Session in Travemünde

Pierre-Charles Barraud, IF18CA Chief Measurer, delivers measurement training

IF18CA started implementing new certification process early 2023, in order to ease sailors life, final aim being to implement the “I buy it, I use it !” principle through self-certification by builders and sailmakers.

To achieve this, a measurement training session has been held on Worlds spot in Travemünde, where Pierre-Charles Barraud demonstrated the way sails have to be measured prior to be possibly certified by accredited sailmakers.

Random inspection checks will then be conducted among self-certified sails during events, in order to keep the system robust and to preserve fairness among sailors and builders.

Definitely a big step forward for the Class !
