The Mini Rules and Mini Rules for Production Boats include information on measurements and what in general is checked during the measurement sessions.
In case of a discrepancy between the French and the English version, the French version of this Guide shall prevail.
MINI RULES – MEASUREMENT 2016
APPLICATION OF THE RULES
These rules are applicable from January 1st in the race year, to all Mini boats. The Administrative Council of Classe Mini has full and exclusive authority to modify and interpret the rules. The official measurer is responsible for the application of the rules and can insist on a demonstration if necessary.
The ongoing ISAF rules (ERS and OSR categories 1 to 5) apply. These rules are changed as follow:
- 3.02.2, 3.02.3: “daggerboard (and keel) boxes” does not apply, is replaced with the obligation of having a resistant cover perfectly waterproof in all points.
- 3.03: is replaced with article R-2
- 3.08.1: is replaced with article J-11-f of the Guide Mini.
- 3.08.3: “companionway” does not apply, is replaced with the application of the minimum standard of ISO 11812, article 8.2.2, table 5, category of conception B, “semi-fixed coaming” and article 8.2.4., the companionway hatch being the “mobile part”. For the application, see article J-11.
- 4.01.2: “Sail letters and numbers” changed, see article J-22 of the Guide
- 4.26.4.f: does not apply.
- 3.14.3.g: may not apply to the pulpit and first stanchions starting from the front if necessary so that once folded, spars are within the beam determined in J-3.
- Appendix K: does not apply.
The Mini Rules are designed to encourage offshore racing on small, moderately-priced monohull racing boats with short-handed crews.
The rules are intended to promote the research and development of security and performance of these sailboats in offshore racing.

PRODUCTION BOAT MINI RULES
Unlike prototypes, production boats must remain a boat easy to produce, to operate, to maintain and to fix. The idea of the production boat mini rule is to allow participation in races of the official Mini calendar with a controlled budget.
1) Production boats must be in accordance with Mini Rules and Production Boat Mini rules. In the event of a conflict between the two rules, the specifications of the Production Boat Mini Rules shall prevail.
2) The structural integrity must be kept such as the shipyard delivered it. This obligation applies to the following points:
- rigging chain plates,
Classe Mini association can accept changes if proposed by the project manager or the owners association.
Generally speaking, it is not possible to remove any material from the shipyard’s standard equipment. It is also not allowed to add some.
3) The following equipment must remain identical to the standard from the shipyard equipment, to maintain safety:
- pulpit, pushpit and stanchions,
- hatches and portholes,
- safety hatch,
- hatch board for the companionway,
- steering system.
4) On January, 1st 2016, Classe Mini has ratified the following boats as production boats: Pogo 1, Pogo 2, Zéro, Super Câlin, Tip-Top, Naus, Dingo, Ginto, Dingo 2, Mistral, Nacira, Argo 6,50 (Mini sails numbers 835 – 836 – 844 – 848 – 857 – 858 -859 and 860), RG 6.50, Ofcet 6,50 and Pogo 3.

S-7-a-1 All boats of the same production must be built by the same professional shipyard. Classe Mini is the only one that can accept a possible change of shipyard.
S-7-a-2 The construction of the boat can only be under the shipyard’s responsibility. However, the owner can take part in the construction of his boat in the shipyard, but cannot build her entirely.
S-7-a-3 The construction must be made on the basis of a female mold (glass monolithic) or a plug (plywood).
S-7-a-4 The minimum construction configuration to deliver a boat is: hull with deck and keel box/trunk ready to receive keel if keel is not installed. Appendages can be delivered separately but must be finished and ready to install.
S-7-b Boats must be identical in regards to their components’ specifications and scantlings.
S-7-c The geometry of the various parts of the boat must be strictly the same (except the sails).
S-7-d Concerning the standing rigging, the boom, the spinnaker pole, the bowsprit and the mast, boats must be in accordance with the nomenclature or the measurement book the architect provided.
S-7-e The architect and/or shipyard and/or class association must pro- vide Classe Mini with the limitations detailed in article S-6.
S-7-f A ratification file must be sent to Classe Mini who is the only entity entitled to let a new boat race according to the ongoing Production Boat Mini Rules. This file has to be sent to Classe Mini when asking for the first sail number.
S-7-g-1 For the first boat:
- identification number of the boat,
- certification that the boat respects the European Rules regarding the stability, the freeboard and the buoyancy,
- designs, including:
. sail plan,
. rigging plan and nomenclature,
. deck plan,
. inside fittings plan,
. hull and deck structure plan,
. nomenclature of the materials for the rudders,
. keel plan,
. bowsprit plan.
- all the specific limitations detailed in S-6.
S-7-g-2 For every one of the nine following boats:
- copy of the certificates of conformity to the rule for leisure production boats,
- date of construction,
- hull number.
S-7-h The boat will be declared a production boat once:
- the ratification file specified in S-7-g-1 and S-7-g-2 is sent to Classe Mini and the Measurement Committee proposes the file to the Administrators’ council who validate the boat,
- the shipyard has built 10 strictly identical boats,
- Classe Mini has measured at least 3 boats,
- Classe Mini and the class measurer have visited the shipyard (at the shipyard’s expense) in order to check the conformity of the building methods. The visit has to occur during the building of the first two boats and before the third one, the keel fin and bulb have to be shown before and after surfacing.
- the same boat has sailed without major incident:
. 2 000 NM in official Mini Races with at least two 500 NM legs non stop,
. one of the 1000 NM single handed qualifying courses specified in article R-8-c, non stop.
S-8 RATIFICATION MONITORING
For all production boats in production beyond the tenth boat produced, one unit per ten can be randomly drawn by Classe Mini at the end of its construction for a full measurement (fees charged to the shipyard).
In case of non-compliance, inspections of boats in production but not yet measured can be elected by Classe Mini (fees charged to the shipyard).
Inspection meetings will be scheduled during the year. It is incumbent upon each skipper to ask Classe Mini for the dates of the inspection meetings and to book an appointment for one of them.
All unmeasured boats or any boats measured but modified on any inspection point effecting the measurement (especially prototype boats) must be inspected at one of these meetings, particularly in the event of significant lightening of the batteries or life raft.
Measurement meetings can be possible for boats competing in an A level race, after the last official race occurring before the A level race, but only under specific conditions as defined by the Administrative Council.
Every boat must comply with the measurement rules to be eligible to participate in any official event published in the race calendar.
The cost of measurement is € 150 for a boat Classe Mini has never inspected and € 90 for boats already measured but with a modification which requires a new measurement.
A € 20 penalty payment will be applied for each nonconformity point that needs to be re-checked.
It is the skipper’s responsibility to ensure that his or her boat remains completely in conformity with the latest measurement requirements. Penalties will be imposed if the boat does not comply.
PRESENTATION TO A MEASUREMENT SESSION
The skipper must book an appointment with Classe Mini before a prescheduled measurement session. He or she must be present at the place of measurement and date decided upon with Classe Mini to assist the measurer for all the measurements of the day.
Registration for a session will be valid once paid. An unjustified absence will result in loss of the payment.
The boat must be presented such as defined in article J-15.
Documentation to be provided to the measurer is:
