New Boat – What to do?

The registration of the Optimists and the sail numbers are managed and issued by the Chief Technical Officer (, see under «Committee»).
In order to obtain a sail number, the following information must be sent:

  • Original certificate of measurement
  • First and last name of the owner (sailor)
  • Birth date
  • Club affiliation
  • Swiss Sailing membership number
  • Exact address of residence
  • Phone number and email address

The Opti is registered using these documents and is given the next following sail number.
The measurement certificate is then sent to the chief measurer of the dinghies.
He checks the measurement certificate and sends it to the secretariat for the official stamp to be applied.
The measurement certificate is then sent back to the owner.
