Red face Beneteau First 36.7 - Sail Measurements

I purchased a new Beneteau First 36.7 last year and love it. Did some club racing and would now like to 'officially' register, hence need to apply to the local association for a PHRF rating.

I'm filling out their application for BC Sailing but to my surprise, I'm not able to find the sail measurements. I scoured websites of Beneteau, the class site, Neil Pryde, Quantum, and North Sails. The sails are described usually by name such as 'class headsail', or 'Deep Runner' symmetrical spinnaker, with lots of details of design and materials, but not the specs.

With all humility, I don't know what the measurements are. The sails are the standard Neil Pryde class sails that came with the boat brand new (2011 model).

Can you help me please with the following: (in decimal feet)

Headsail:
LP
LLJ


Main:
HB
MGU
MGM


Spinnaker Pole:
SPL

THANK YOU very much.
John

The PHRF committee will either figure it out or send someone to measure them. Tell them they are 'standard'. They have a big book with all the numbers.

Here is a link to a site that has the measurements. BeneteauOwners.com Sail Loft Its been a long time but I think that the spin pole length is the same as the J or in your case 12' 9"
