Sail numbers are an important way of uniquely identifying a yacht for a variety of purposes. They are a requirement for racing, and could be critical in a search and rescue situation. For these reasons, the RYA recommend that all yachts have a unique sail number.
When applying sail numbers ensure that the port side numbers (left) are below the starboard numbers (on the right) of the sail. Numbers should be applied on the top third of the sail.
The area of the sail that you intend to apply the numbers to should be cleaned with soapy water and left to dry.
Lay the sail on a smooth flat surface and use a measure and some masking tape to mark out some guidelines. This will ensure that you put the numbers on straight.
Sail numbers/stickers may be supplied with clear application tape - leave this on for the time being and just remove the backing paper from the numbers/stickers.
Carefully apply the numbers/stickers to your sail making use of the guidelines. Use a credit card or flexible squeegie to smooth out the number/sticker working from the centre outwards to carefully remove any air bubbles. Finally, peel of the clear application tape.
