Micro Class Rules
Appendix 4 – Test Rules
                        these rules are in a test period and may be modified yearly. IMCCA is not responsible 
                        for sails becoming obsolete due to a change of test rules.
A4.01.00
(05.04.00) Asymmetrical Spinnakers Refers to Class Rule 05.04.00 This rule was introduced in
                  2005for a test period of 5 years extended by 3 years in 2010, ending on December 31st, 
                  2012
A4.01.01   Asymmetrical spinnakers are only allowed in Divisions "Racers" and "Cruisers".
A4.01.02
(05.04.01) a. Spinnaker Luff (SLu): is the distance from Head Point to Tack Point.
                  b. Spinnaker Leech (SLe): is the distance from Head Point to Clew Point.
                  c. Spinnaker Half Width (SMG): is the distance between the Half Luff Point, equidistant    
                      between the Tack Point and the Head Point, and the Half Leech Point.
                  d. Spinnaker Foot Length (SF): is the distance from Tack Point to Clew Point, measured
                      on a straight line.
A4.01.03
(05.04.03) The Half Width (SMG) shall not be taken as less than 75% of the Spinnaker Foot Length
                  (SF).
A4.01.04  NEW
                 The Foot Length (SF) shall not be taken as less than 1.5*STL (Bowsprit End Distance, see
A4.02.02.b), and the Half Width (SMG) shall not be taken as less than 1.125*STL.
A4.01.05
(05.04.04)  Sail Area of Asymmetrical Spinnaker (SMAS) is given by:
                   SMAS = (SLu+SLe)*(4*SMG+SF)/12
A4.01.06
(05.04.05)  SMAS shall not be greater than 19.60 square metres.
A4.02.00
(05.05.00)  Spinnaker Poles and Bowsprits Refers to Class Rule 05.05.00 This rule was introduced    
                  in   2005 for a test period of 5 years extended by 3 years in 2010, ending on December 
                  31st,   2012
A4.02.01
(05.05.01) A spare Spinnaker Pole or Bowsprit may be carried on board and used for replacement of a
                  broken Spinnaker Pole or Bowsprit whilst racing.
A4.02.02
(05.05.02) a. The Spinnaker Pole Extension (SPL) shall be measured from the forward side of the
                      Mast to the extreme outboard end of the Spinnaker Pole, set on its fitting on the Mast in                   a horizontal position on the centre line of the Boat. This changes ERS F.14.1.   
                      An automatic Spinnaker Pole shall be set from the cockpit in its outermost position and
                      measured with no other tension applied.
                  b. The Bowsprit End Distance (STL) is the distance measured from the forward side of the
                      Mast to the forward end of the Bowsprit.
                  c. When not used for setting an asymmetrical spinnaker, a Bowsprit shall be retracted    
                      within the limits of the Hull template (see figure 1).
A4.02.03
(05.05.03) a. The Spinnaker Pole Extension (SPL) shall not be greater than 2.25 metres.
                  b. When the Bowsprit End Distance exceeds 2/3 of Spinnaker Foot Length (SF), 1.5* 
                      the value of STL shall be used as SF for Spinnaker Area calculation.
                  c. When the Bowsprit End Distance exceeds 8/9 of Spinnaker Half Width (SMG), 1.125*
                       the value of STL shall be used as SMG for Spinnaker Area calculation.
A4.03.00
(05.03.00) Headsails Refers to Class Rule 05.03.05 This rule was introduced in 2005 for a test period
                 of 4 years.  It was modified in 2008 to apply until end of 2009. This rule is extended by 3
                  years in 2010, ending on December 31st, 2012

No board is
allowed in
Headsails. No
more than two
battens of any size
are allowed in
Headsails except

the top inside
edges of the
Batten Pockets
are totally within
20% of LP from
the Leech. The
