CSA Rating Rule

header3

All boats in the CSA Monohull classes must have a valid 2014 digitally-certified CSA rating certificate.  All boats in the Bareboat classes must have a valid 2014 digitally-certified CSA bareboat certificate.

Please note that updates to the CSA Rating Rule for 2014 have concentrated on improving the assessment of sail area and as a result additional sail measurements will be required for a 2014 CSA rating.  These measurements can be taken from reputable sail makers’ documentation for the sails, so where this is available it will speed up the process.  If documentation is not available and for some unforeseen reason the additional measurements are not done, the older estimates of sail area will be used. However, as this may result in a slightly higher rating we encourage yacht owners to make the necessary arrangements to have the new measurements done in good time.

Boats requiring CSA measurement in Antigua should contact either of the CSA Official Measurers listed below by no later than Noon on Wednesday, April 23, 2014.  Measurement of boats in time for Registration cannot be guaranteed after that time.  Full details of CSA Rules, Amendments and Official Measurers can be obtained from www.caribbean-sailing.com or contact your local CSA Measurer or Antigua Sailing Week Committee Desk.
