DEFINITION OF SAIL PURCHASE DATE [revised 04/11/22] (2002-02-12)
Q1: What is the date of purchase of a sail for purposes of Rule 6.8?
A1: The date of delivery to the Owner is considered the date of purchase of any sail. This date should be shown on the sail tag certificate (see Rule 6.9). An exception is granted to this for 2021 sail tags. Due to world supply chain issues delaying delivery of sails, sail ordered in 2021 but delivered in 2022 may be assigned to the sail purchase limits for the boat for 2021. The sail tag list shall reflect the actual delivery date (in 2022) but note that the sail is being applied to the 2021 purchase limit.
