Proposal 1


Rule 17.4
Change from:
... The sail number and letter(s) shall be of the minimum dimensions:

Height 300 mm
Width 200 mm
Thickness 45 mm


Change to:
... The sail number and letter(s) shall be of the minimum dimensions:

Height 300 mm
Width 200 mm
Thickness 40 mm


___________________________________________________________
Reason:
Sailmakers commonly purchase numbers and letters in standard sizes. The change in thickness from 45 mm to 40 mm permits using more standard and more available numbers and letters.


This is strongly supported by International Measurer Ron Duffield.
