Great idea and a perfect chance to get everyones records up to date and fill in any measurement certificates not yet done.

Likewise, I should have some goodies to measure, also more than happy to be a pleb on the end of a tape measure.
I will try to bring the class scales too!

Good point Robin, that hadn't even crossed my mind.... but there are a few museums to do as well.....

I think its a great idea. Have a few sails I need to get measured, and would be happy to give a hand with other peoples kit too.

Do you know if WPNSA would make us pay to use the boatpark for the day? I was going to be paying a daysailing fee anyway, so it makes no odds to me.

It has been pointed out to me that the lay day between nationals and Weymouth would be a good opportunity to get weights/measurements done on the boats in the fleet without messing with a sailing schedule!! Of course this requires the co operation of boats and sailors so I wanted to see who is up for this sort of thing? I guess most of us won't be heading back to work for the one day so let me know what your thoughts are!!!

We are currently in talks with a number of companies regarding sponsorship of our Big Birthday Nationals and would like to hear from you.

Do you own/work for/know of a company who would like to sponsor us? We can offer large advertising spaces on clothing, booms and sails as well as top quality photos and press coverage in the run up to and during the event including prize giving.

Please contact me through here or at (admin@uk-cherub.org).

Lets make this our biggest Nationals yet!

Mast weighed 8.33kg
Ctech mast with all the wires, all trapeze lines etc.

But there is a remarkable difference between that and shinys mast, yes; due to the stump the mast is about 500mm shorter, but I have to put a bit of effort in to lift Poppy’s mast.

Toe nails = 1g

Always get your crew to cut them before an event

Winged rudder: 2900g
Stock: 1240
Pole: 1590 (with tack line)
Boom: 2000g (clas mandrel one, with a mainsheet and blocks)
Mast: tba. (Kitchen scales wouldn’t go that high)
Cboard: 2540 (Bloodaxe short board)
Hull: 49kg just with paint.

I’ll try and get the mast weighed when I do poppy this weekend (weather permitting) as I’ll have the class scaled tied up to the engine hoist to do so.
