Sail Purchase Window Has Opened

The Fleet 1 approved sail purchase window is October 13th to December 31st, 2017. This is your only opportunity to buy new sails until after the 2018 Fleet 1 Championships!

According to the Fleet 1 bylaws:

III.C.4. Sail replacement procedure is as defined in the Class Rules.

 

III.C.5. The Fleet 1 Board may establish by majority vote a “fall order window” during which time new sails shall be ordered. No replacement sails may ordered at other times of year except as allowed by the Class Rules.

 

III.C.6. A sail’s age shall be determined by the delivery date as recorded by the W.D. Schock Corp. For replacement sails, the age will be determined by the Measurer’s dated approval.

 

III.C.7. The Fleet has appointed Elliott/Pattison Sailmakers as its sole permitted sail maker for new mainsails, and Ullman Sails as its sole permitted sail maker for new jibs. No other sail/sail maker combinations will be allowed.

After purchase, the Fleet 1 Measurer will inspect, measure and sign the sail before it may be used.

According to the Class Bylaws:

III.H.8.   For a Class Yacht, the Owner may purchase one jib sail in each calendar year and one main sail in every second calendar year. The calendar year for sail purchase begins on the date the sail was officially measured.

 

III.H.9.   The Owner of a newly purchased used Class Yacht inherits the sail purchase rights of the previous owner, and may petition the Class Measurer to obtain new sails at the time of purchase.

 

III.H.10. If a sail is damaged beyond reasonable repair, lost, or for some reason is unusable, the Owner may petition the Class or Fleet Measurer for permission to purchase a replacement sail.

The cost of a new mail sail from Elliott/Pattison Sailmakers is $1,528 (lower than last year).  They are offering a 20% discount to Fleet 1 members: $1,222.40.  Call (949) 645-6696 and press 1, or (949) 275-3302 direct. More details can be viewed here.

Fleet 1 Championships

The Fleet 1 Championships are being held Saturday and Sunday, September 30th and October 1, 2017.

Here are some of the eligibility requirements for those that wish to participate in this two-day, high-point regatta. (Note some of the deadline dates which is only days away)

  • Your boat has to be in the water continuously from August 1, 2017 until the start of the race.

You can check to see if your boat has a certificate by going to the membership roster under the “Members” menu on this website, and clicking on your boat name. If you have a certificate, you will see it. If you don’t, contact the Fleet 1 Measurer to get a weight certificate for your boat.
  • Skippers must be an equal owner of the boat. That means, the Skipper’s name must be on the boat title as of August 1, 2017. Keep a copy of your boat’s registration in the event the Measurer wants to verify the ownership.

The full text of the Fleet ByLaws can be found online here.

From the Class Bylaws:

III.A.   Class Yacht

 

 

III.A.1.   These Specifications define and control the Class Yacht that is the only boat permitted to race in Class Races.

Schock Corporation (Builder) are implied to be a part of these Rules.

 

 

III.A.2.   Any changes to the specifications of the Class Yacht must be communicated to the Class Measurer prior to their implementation, and subsequently approved by the Board.

 

 

III.B.    Measurement

III.B.3.   In the absence of the Class Measurer, Fleet or Assistant Class Measurer, the Class President may serve as Measurer.

 

 

III.C.    Registration

 

 

III.C.1.   No boat shall be deemed to be a Class Yacht until it has been completed with a building number assigned by the W.D. Schock Corporation and molded into the transom. Any alteration to the hull, keel, rudder or spars may invalidate the yacht.

The full text of the Class ByLaws can be found online here.

 

It is intended that strict adherence to the rules be maintained. However, a member with special circumstances, may petition the Fleet Board for a variance in these rules. This should be done well in advance of the event.

It is the responsibility of the competitor to conform with these rules. The Fleet Measurer may perform inspections before or after the race to validate rule conformance. Questions should be directed to the Fleet 1 Measurer.
