I assume there are regulations on the positioning of sail numbers - it may be somewhere on the MCA website - can anyone point me in the right direction for the measurements please

Hi John,

what is required is in Section 7 of the Class rules. There are "Identification" sections for both main and spinnaker. You can download a copy of the class rules from the ISAF website. Instuctions on how to do this here ukmirrorsailing.com/index.php?option=com...le&id=585&Itemid=329

What the National letters are for each country, how big letters and numbers have to be and where they go is laid down in Appendix G of the Racing Rules of Sailing. You can download a copy, and see latest changes on the ISAF website here www.sailing.org/documents/racingrules/index.php

Generally it's not possible to get them within an arc of 60% leech length (G1.3 (a)) because it's a small sail and sailmakers tend to use numbers and letters which are just over 300mm high (they could get away with ones which are just over 230mm high as the boat is less than 3.5m long). If you look at photos of boats racing with sails made by the top, well know sailmakers (P&B, North, Goacher, Goodwin, Trident, Walker, Q-Mark....) these usually comply and may help you. There is also a section of the Mirror dinghy measurement forms for main and spinnaker (on the ISAF website along with the rules)where I have written down the rules (Class and RRS Appendix G) applying to numbers & letters and this may help as well

Is there nothing simpler to give me measurements of where to put the letters? wading through a 283 page document is rather daunting
