Boat Scrutineering

Spars, foils, and boat weight will be "scrutineered" for this contest.

For spars and foils, it is expected all entrants will have ensured their foils and spars measure by utilising their local regional measurer to carry this out. The measurer will apply the ZOA sticker on each of the items showing they measure, and these will be taken as done at the contest. Boats will be weighed at the contest. Those already holding ZOA stickers for their spars and foils do not have to get any measuring carried out (unless they have replaced or modified the equipment in any way.)

It is hoped this approach will streamline the process for us all, organisers and entrants.
