Reply To: Sail Labels
hi bill . I absolutely agree.I’m new to the class and I just want to get it right. Rules is rules- i saw the post and thought ‘ oh that’s new’
back in the 80’s when GP 14’s had a price cap on sails and sailmakers were’TOLD’ how much they could charge by the association – they introduced labels and made it clear the sailmakers had to buy them . along with some other sailmakers I listed the labels as a fitted extra in our price list – I remember well the ‘ discussion’ with the deputation from the GP association on my stand at the Dinghy exhibition which resulted in me being told they would never measure any of my sails as they were considered ‘over priced’ – never did make any more GP sails- SO when I see the phrase ‘sail labels’ my light comes on ( ha ha).
By the way whilst I’m playing Devil’s advocate for the fun of it I’ve yet to see an OK sail that measures as I interpret the rules. (2015 rules )
