Re: The new ISAF RRS 2013-2016 are out

So, first the prefix and then the suffix.
Thank you, Jhon and Olibier

Re: The new ISAF RRS 2013-2016 are out

Hi, Jhon:

The problem is with a friend. His personal number is 100 and he should show 0 in its sails and, with a suffix (4 for example), would be 04.

Re: The new ISAF RRS 2013-2016 are out

I guess a problem with rule E8(b)(6): Any changed sail number shall become the sail number for the event . Does not that create a loop with Rule E8(b)(3)? ( When the sail number is in the range ‘00’ to ‘09’, the initial ‘0’ shall be omitted and the remaining digit positioned to allow space for both ...

Re: The new ISAF RRS 2013-2016 are out

E8(b)(3) When the sail number is in the range ‘00’ to ‘09’, the initial ‘0’ shall be omitted and the remaining digit positioned to allow space for both a prefix and a suffix. E8(b)(4) ‘0’ shall not be used as a prefix. Question: Is it possible to use a suffix without a prefix if the sail number is 0?

Re: The new ISAF RRS 2013-2016 are out

because pauses between digits (when spoken) will probably be sufficient... I also agree because, without considering pauses, I can also claim that when one hundred ninety-six is called, those who do not know well the language (like me) can understand 100 and 96 or 100, 90 and 6. And French is much ...

I agree, but it is uglier the umpire call 81 for a penalty turn instead 18.

Re: The new ISAF RRS 2013-2016 are out

I know my bad English is a problem. My idea is to put 81, with a line, to distinguish from 18, 08 from 80, 51 from 15, 188 from 881, etc.

Re: The new ISAF RRS 2013-2016 are out

Problems may occur when in a race one of these numbers is repeated and should put a prefix. I think it would be better if everyone put a stripe just under the last digit of the sail number in all sails.

Good idea, Jhon. But remember that E8(b)(3) says the range is from 00 to 09 (do not forget 00)

Re: The new ISAF RRS 2013-2016 are out

My opinion is that ALL non english speakers going to an international event know how to say their number in english. And they learn quickly how to hear it ! The problem is that there are other languages ​​than English and French. I will propose that, in the races that take place in the Basque Count...

For those who do not speak English (like me) it is much easier to understand 'five three' than 'fiftythree'.

Re: The new ISAF RRS 2013-2016 are out

Under the 2008-12 rules, at a start line, the RD hails ZERO FOUR, ONE FOUR ONE over early. To me that is clear, and two boats are hailed, 04 and 141. Under the new rules, the RD hails FOUR, ONE FOUR ONE over early. Given slight pauses, that hail could be interpreted by the skippers as two boats, 4 ...
