Ultimately I would like to qualify for Cat 2 coastal racing. From what I can make out to meet the safety regs I will need a bright colour with a min area of 1m2 that can be seen when the boat is upside down. The boat would be rather slow upside down for that and several other reasons I hope that I never find myself in that position. Given that I will be keeping the boat at home under cover rather than on a mooring I have decided that I will not anti foul the bottom so I thought this may do the job. It has an area of just over 1m2. I will also paint the lower section of the dagger board with this colour.
