Mainsail Colour Patches

Urgent attention required to have your colour patch approved and registered


Your urgent attention is drawn to F11 Class Rule 10.1

10.1 Colour patch is optional. If used, it shall be positioned in approximately the centre of the mainsail. The colour patch shall not occupy an area greater than 1500cm sq. and it's design must have the prior approval of the registrar, who after approving, will register it.

If you have a colour patch on your mainsail it is probably not approved and therefore not registered. 

For the upcoming NSW 2005/6 State Titles, if your colour patch is not approved and registered, you will be required to remove it from your sail prior to being allowed to compete in the event.  It is your responsibility to ensure your boat is class legal. 

What do you need to do?

  • Notify your club measurer that you want your colour patch checked for compliancy with class rule 10.1
  • Provide a description, drawing or photograph of the colour patch to your club measurer to be past on to the Registrar.
  • Ensure your club measurer contacts the Registrar at to have your colour patch approved and registered.
