Radio Sailing and Lightning

The controlling organization for one of our venues wants us to have some direction about how everyone will be instructed to deal with potential lightning strikes. RRS 32 generally covers this but nothing specific. My guess is that we are not the first to have this requirement so I'm looking for some...

Re: 2016 IOMICA Motions

The proposed change to the CCR doesn't make SHRS a fixed possibility for the Worlds or Continental Championship. It actually opens the possibility of using any other scoring system, with the approval, as Miguel properly states, of the Events ESC. The way the rules currently read there are hints that...

Re: 2015 AGM - Topic: Ratify Emergency Class Rule

Even though my little sidebar identification probably says I am Secretary, I am not. But, I believe that very shortly there will a diagrammatic representation of what will be considered the correct way to measure this fitting. If anyone thinks that there is another way then the real option is to lod...

Re: Emergency Class Rule Change - Gooseneck Fittings

Another apology. This time to say that this rule change is not yet approved by IRSA and so that means that its validity is still not in place. A request for approval is going to IRSA momentarily and it is hoped the outcome will be known shortly after that. It is conceivable that the exact wording ma...

Emergency Class Rule Change - Gooseneck Fittings

Prior to the 2015 Worlds and following onto an earlier Class Rule Interpretation, it became apparent that a decent number of fittings that were in use and had been in use for years would be rendered illegal.

Re: 2014 AGM Discussion

I think there are good possibilities. There are also issues but if the organization wants change that all becomes relatively simple. At the moment we require the NCAs to poll their owners for every vote and that has to introduce a delay in results if there are changes introduced through discussion. ...

Hi John, Thanks for your interest in the "meeting" process.

An interesting design exercise and Robert is certainly the right guy to address it in the end. As John Ball has told you below, and you indicate you are doing, the only official declaration comes from asking for an interpretation. Seems like you have started on that path.

2014 AGM Discussion

The items to be voted on this year are not, I think, very controversial so I don't particularly think a separate forum is required to supply discussion space. So I will propose that if there is any meaningful discussion that we just conduct it under this heading and go from there. If we find there i...

Re: Drum winch at lowish price

I'll try to shed a little light. Although the specs sound very similar the two winches are technically quite a bit apart, I think. I have absolutely no experience with that MX winch but it looks to be based on fairly normal servo technology and the RMG is anything but that. I have used a number of t...

I am a little confused about how this can be confusing. For years, the Class Rules concerning sail construction have been primarily quite stagnant.
