Sail Flags, Letters & Numbers
With our main Championships of the RS Aero Worlds, Youth Worlds and Eurpeans fast approaching it is time to make sure our sails are all correctly dressed in accordance to Class Rules C.10.4 and Annex 2.

National Sail Flags
These will be provided by the Class Association at each events' Registration with plenty available for each of the countries entered. 
1 flag is required on the port side for these events, at least 60mm under letters and from leach. A second one is optional on starboard, positioned back-to-back with the port one.
1 flag will be supplied free to each Youth Worlds competitor. Flags for the Worlds and European Championships entries can be bought at the event Registration for $5 and £5 respectively.
They look great and add a nice splash of colour to the otherwise white RS Aero!

Numbers
Numbers need to match the four digit sail number aplied to the the hull.
They need to be black, 
RS Aero 5 & 6 needs 230mm tall with min of 45mm spacings
and 
RS Aero 7 & 9 needs 300mm tall with min of 60mm spacings
Spacings are minimums, so go for a good safety margin! Remember the spacings also apply to opposite sides and the distance from the leach too.

Country Letters 
Three digit country letters are required at international events, which includies these three main chamionships. 
Letters can be either digital or rounded. Digital is preferable to match the appearance of the numbers. 
Again they need to be black with same size and spacing as the numbers. 
Digital letters can be formed from buying digital 8's. See page 39 here; https://www.rsaerosailing.org/docs/RSAeroRiggingManualOverdeckV10.pdf
