I have one of these, brilliant boat. Not sure exactly what you mean by rules, the boats were a 'one design' class so all were meant to be raced as supplied. If you are after rig dimensions then I think you are going to struggle as the boats are quite rare now & no longer raced as a class. However they can be raced in the '10 rater class' the rules for that are available on line.

    hi knoby    thanks for your reply . in 1978 oliver lee brought 2 of these boats to setly in the new forest for people to try.   the boat was so nice to sail I sailed it all day but could not afford one. a couple of years ago I decided to try to find one.recently one came up on ebay which I managed to get. imagine my surprise to find it was no 1 which was olivers own boat that I had sailed in 1978. however the boat was minus the mast so to try to keep it as original as possible I need to know height of mast above the deck also height of jib attachment point above deck .

There is some info in this thread

I,m not convinced I have the original mast on my boat, but the sails are. I will have a measure this week & post the results here.


Have to agree it's  a superb boat to sail & incredibly fast in a good wind.
