Request for Class Rule changes concerning Mainsail Roach and Batten Control.

Request for IOM   Class Rule changes   from Robert GrubiÅ¡a, IOM ICA VC Chairman .

Goals for the proposed amendments:

• To remove non ERS definitions if possible.
• To amend the current, and in practise impossible, leech requirements.
• To permit batten patches and to treat them equal to batten pockets.
• To permit mainsails without any battens/batten patches
• To simplify the current leech control rules if possible.
• To legalize currently used sails which do not comply with the current rules in regard to leech
shape at a batten pocket point and/or have batten patches.
