Class rules

Etchells hulls, hull appendages, rigs and sails are measurement controlled.

These rules are deemed to include the Sail Measurement Certificate, Measurement Templates and Measurement Diagrams.

Etchells hulls, hull appendages and rigs shall only be manufactured by ISAF approved builders– in the class rules referred to as licensed builders. Equipment is required to comply with the International Etchells Building Specification and is subject to an ISAF approved manufacturing control system.

Etchells hulls, hull appendages, rigs and sails may, after having left the manufacturer, only be altered to the extent permitted in Section C of the class rules.

Owners and crews should be aware that compliance with rules in Section C is NOT checked as part of the certification process.

Rules regulating the use of equipment during a race are contained in Section C of these class rules, in ERS Part I and in the Racing Rules of Sailing.

If these rules do not say you can, then you cannot.
