These are the official measurements for my boat which is a standard T500 launched in 1978 (yours might be different!!)

LOA...............8.3m
LWL...............6.76m
BEAM..............2.82m
DISPLACEMENT......2724Kg
DRAFT.............1.45m
FORESTAY..........10.2m
MAIN AREA.........131ft (12.1m)
HOIST.............8.50m
FOOT..............2.74m
GENOA(150%)AREA...297ft (27.6m)
LUFF..............10.12m
LP................5.37m (Longest perpendicular from the luff to the clew)

Let me know if you need any more info. Be aware the RTI is the most congested race in the country, with more idiots who don't know one end of a boat from another, let alone those who don't know basic sailing rules. That's why I don't do it any more! Having said that it's a great experience & if we had our own class race I might consider it again???

Of course this might be an idea for an owners weekend. Meet at Cowes overnight on a Friday & race around next day (without paying 55 entry fee!)

Await further response!
