The Rating-Measurement of Yachts

The introduction of scientific engineering methods in the measurements of racing yachts is probably a matter in which few of our readers have ever had the opportunity of indulging. First of all, to those who know little of sailing, and still less of the complications of measurement for "rating" of sailing yachts, we should state that before a boat can compete in any but handicap races she must be measured in order to see that she complies strictly with the rules laid down for "class" yachts.
