The 36 Inch SHIPMATE ( One Design ) Class
The 36”Shipmate is a one design class and it is the expressed intention that all boats be as similar in all respects as an individual builder can make them.
The Sails for this class are strictly controlled to ensure uniformity.
Only Single Panelled sails are permitted except on the mainsail a panel low down is permitted on older boars.
Battons positions and size have to conform to the approved templates as well as the local reinforcing patched to the three corners of the sails.
Sail Numbers must be the personal Sail number as given to you by SARSA and must conform to Appendix E - Radio Controlled Boat Racing
The one thing that is not restricted in the class is your personal colour scheme and you are encouraged to go and have fun.
Remember in a tight group of boats on the start line it can get confusing unless you can identify some unique feature on your boat.
