        I don't think there is one , but from experience, I
would say

        DIN        ICMS
         6.6         22
         6.8         25
         7.0         28
         7.2         30
 Don't take as gospel. This is a guestimate. And from what I
can remember the DIN rating only rated the bend of the top
of the mast. If you want to use a mast with a DIN # with your
sail/sails I would RIG the sail on the Din mast.
