Vallensbaek lloks a really cool place to organize the Worlds. Lots of work going on as usual with measurement, and the Class in the future should look to simplify this process. The As have decided avoid onsite massive measurements and delegates responsibility to each sailor. Of course you need to have your boat measured and certificated previously as they can grab any boat during the even to confirm compliance.

For standard measurement procedures , is key to have hard working people, like Charles Pierre Barraud (2nd pic above blue T shirt). In Buenos Aires we were 45 boats, but not many had certificates, and his work and disposition was key. Still I think we need to make his life easier for major event with +100 boats attendance. I would use the 2-3 measurement days for an additional racing one as an alternative.
