You must present new boats, or in the case of major re-construction, for measurement to a State Measurer to obtain an "A" class measurement certificate.
The cost of measurement may vary by State...it is $100 in Victoria.
The State Measurer will submit measurement documentation to the National Measurer who will subsequently issue the "A" class measurement certificate.
An "A" class sticker is required to be placed on the bulkhead.
It is mandatory for sails and foils to be measured to competie in National or State championships.
The State Measurer will sign sails and foils as evidence of compliance and this is checked when registering at National and State championships. Please refer to State calendars for dates and locations of sail and foil measurement events.
Note - if you currently own a Sabre and do not have a copy of the building notes, these maybe obtained from Barry Eastgate (Australian Secretary refer contact info page). Price $30 for current members ($60 for non-members) includes return postage.
Please contact Barry directly for more information.
Extended Centrecase Ruling
Some recents concerns have been raised in regards to the construction of Centreboard cases that may not be in line with the current class rules.
To assist in providing a ruling, the Sabre association sought advice from Andre Blasse, current OK dinghy and Olympic Finn measurer.
