Thistle Measurement Certificates 

Part of the success of the Thistle Class can be attributed to our strict enforcement of one-design concept. Each new boat owner is asked to measure the boat. Boats must be registered (measured) and dues paid before they are eligible to compete in sanctioned events.

Download the Measurement Certificate and view helpful tips on how to measure your Thistle on the Official Documents page. You will need a skipper of a registered boat to assist in measuring, and then send two signed copies of the measurement forms along with $10 to the class secretary.
