Re: Another query

Hi Don


Your question may well lead to more clear ISAF rules and in turn to easier to understand IOM class rules. Absolutely no reason for you to say "sorry"!


Best regards

Hi Bruce I think the IOM class rules are ok as they are and that an IOMICA request is not needed, but Don Case raised an issue that could help to improve on the ISAF Standard Class Rules and the ISAF Equipment Rules of Sailing.

Hi Don A few comments: Class rule C.7.5: " Boom spar curvature measured between points on the top of the spar 10 mm from each end ..." Class rule A.5.2: "... when a term is printed in “ bold ” the definition in the ERS applies." So there is a sort of a "search engine" built into the class rules. ERS...

Sixth, and finally, I'm also not exactly sure what you are saying about RSD. I have always argued that while RSD does not currently have properly elected officers, RSD's agreement with IOMICA is still valid.

Fact is R/C sailing is different from other forms of sailing. And so are all other special disciplines of sailing and this is reflected by the RRS Appendices of which Appendix E is one.
