MYA Measurers – How to Become One

From 1 January 2020 the MYA has entered into a formal agreement with the RYA for the appointment and training of MYA Measurers.

The full formal agreement is attached below. It regularises the requirement that Official Measurers, who are required to measure the majority of the classes we sail, shall be appointed or recognised by the World Sailing Member National Authority in our country.

Applicants to become a Sail Measurer will need to take and pass the RYA Sail Measurer course. These are one day sessions run at regular intervals at various locations around the UK. Costs for the course fees, travelling, and RYA membership for the first year will may be claimed from the MYA funds. Interested parties should contact the MYA Technical Officer for further information.

Once appointed as a Sail Measurer they may apply to become a MYA Class Measurer. This will entail passing general and class specific training demonstrating satisfactory ability to the Class & MYA.

Current MYA measurers retain their appointment until the end of 2022 but will need to re-train, as above, if they wish to become an Official Measurer.

List of current measurers and their Clubs can be found in the Members Area of this website.
