XOD Sail Measurers’ Symposium
Fifteen sail measurers and sail makers met, courtesy of the Royal Lymington Yacht Club on 26th January to debate good sail measuring practice in the XOD class. After a week of snow the day proved to be the first day of an early spring and was blessed with blue skies and
sunshine. The day was organised by your XOD Technical Advisory Committee and facilitated by Dick Batt as a senior representative of the International Sailing Federation.
