Class Rules

  • 1.General Principles
    • 1.1One-Design
    • The H-Boat is a one-design class.
    • Except where variations are specifically permitted, boats of this class shall be alike in: hull, deck and keel form, construction, weight and weight distribution; shape of rudder and sails.
    • All boats shall be built in accordance with these class rules and the plans. Deviations from the plans are permitted for spars, standing and running rigging, sheeting arrangements, rudder stock bearings, tiller and tiller extension, lifting eyes, fittings on deck, details of hatches and certain parts of the accommodation. These items shall comply with the rules.
    • All boats, in respect of hull, deck, keel and rudder form and construction and spars, shall comply with either the current class rules, or the corresponding rules applying to them at the time the first measurement certificate was issued. Any alterations or replacements shall comply with the rules current at the time the alterations or replacements are made.
    • Sails shall comply with the current rules.
    • Interpretations of these rules shall be made by the ISAF which in coming to its decision may consult the International H-Boat Class Association and the original plans.
    • 1.2These rules are complementary to, and shall be read in conjunction with, the plans measurement form and measurement diagram.
    • 1.3In the event of discrepancy between these rules, the measurement form and/or the plans, the matter shall be referred to the ISAF.
    • 1.4Administering Authority
      • 1.4.1The international authority for the class shall be the ISAF which shall co- operate with the International H-Boat Association in all matters regarding these rules.
      • 1.4.2In countries where there is no National Authority or the National Authority does not wish to administer the class, its functions as stated in these rules shall be carried out by the International H-Boat Association or its delegated representative (National H-Boat Association).
    • 1.5Neither the ISAF nor the International H-Boat Association accept any legal responsibility in respect of these rules and/or the plans, or any claims arising therefrom.
  • 2.Administration
    • 2.1English Language
      • 2.1.1The official language of the class is English and in the event of dispute over interpretation the English text shall prevail.
      • 2.1.2The word "shall" is mandatory and the word "may" is permissive.
    • 2.2Licensed Builders
    • The H-Boat shall be built only by builders licensed to do so by the ISAF. Applications for licences shall be made to the International Yacht Racing Union which may issue a licence to a builder considered to have appropriate production facilities, knowledge and experience and to be able to fulfil such other conditions as the ISAF may deem necessary. A licensed builder shall be required to bind himself to comply with the class rules, plans, specifications and measurements.
    • 2.3International class FEE
    • An International Class Fee (ICF) shall be paid by the builder to the ISAF for each boat built. As evidence of payment of the International Class Fee the ISAF shall issue an official plaque.
    • 2.4Registration and Measurement Certificate
      • 2.4.1No boat is permitted to race unless it has an valid measurement certificate.
      • 2.4.2ISAF Plaque. The ISAF Plaque shall be obtained by the builder before the boat leaves his yard. The plaque will carry an ISAF serial number. The builder shall insert on the plaque the builder's name, serial number of plug and mould. The plaque shall be fixed to the hull in an permanent manner in the position indicated in rule 2.7.1 (see also plan no. A.3.4)
      • 2.4.3The certificate is obtained as follows: The owner applies to his National Authority for a sail number giving the ISAF Plaque number and the builder's name. The National Authority shall issue a sail number only on receipt of these details as evidence that ICF has been paid. Each country shall start its numbering from "one", and each number shall be used once only. The boat shall be measured by an official measurer recognised by the National Authority of the country in which measurement takes place. The completed measurement form shall be supplied to the owner of the boat. The owner shall send the completed measurement form to his National Authority together with any registration fee that the National Authority requires. On receipt of this the National Authority may issue a Measurement Certificate to the owner.
      • 2.4.4Change of ownership invalidates the Measurement Certificate but shall not necessitate remeasurement. The owner may apply to his National Authority for a new certificate, returning the old certificate with any re-registration fee that may be required and stating the necessary particulars. The National Authority may then issue a certificate to the new owner.
      • 2.4.5It is the owner's responsibility to ensure that his boat, spars, sails and equipment comply with the class rules at all times.
      • 2.4.6Changes and major repairs to the boat, its spars, or equipment invalidate the certificate and require partial remeasurement as the official measurer may determine.
      • 2.4.7Notwithstanding anything in these rules the ISAF or the National Authority shall have the power to withdraw or to refuse to grant a certificate to any boat.
    • 2.5Measurement
      • 2.5.1Only a measurer officially recognised by the builder's or the owner's National Authority shall measure a boat, its spars, sails and equipment and sign the declaration on the measurement form.
      • 2.5.2Tolerances are given in these rules and corresponding drawings to permit minor building errors or distortion through age.
      • 2.5.3The measurer may take supplementary measurements in order to satisfy himself that the boat is in accordance with the class rules. If the measurer considers that there is a departure from the one design construction or these rules in any detail the National Authority shall be informed. In such a case the National Authority shall not issue a Measurement Certificate until the case has been investigated and any necessary corrections have been made.
      • 2.5.4All boats shall be measured using the official templates supplied by the ISAF.
      • 2.5.5New or substantially altered sails shall be measured by an official measurer who shall stamp affix a licensed button or sign and date the sails near the tack.
      • 2.5.6A measurer shall not measure a boat, its spars or equipment owned or built by himself, or in which he is an interested party or has a vested interest. Sails may be measured by sailmakers licensed by their National Authority.
