Default Can someone explain wing chord?

Hi all

Can someone explain wing chord to me please? Specifically where and how can I measure it?

I'm racing in a class which stipulates a maximum wing chord of 50mm.

Many thanks

And here I thought "wing chord" was one of those cool chords Jimi plays on Little Wing.

PS. It's Jimi's birthday today. Enjoy.
