From World Champs 2009 Roy648, I have struggled with this as well. While I would like to believe I know the intent of the class rules, it is possible that ply thickness was never intended to be controlled. It is possible they intended to make legal a sail that had a 3mil head panel and a 1.5mil foo...

Thank you Roy. I'm afraid though that kind of "overseer" statements scare the hell out of me. One can see the logic from an ISAF point of view "keep things as standard as possible across all classes". But from the IOM point of view, and in fact the RSD future discussion, it does somewhat appear that...

Sail Materials

I am starting this thread so that the discussion can be moved from the World Championship 2009 thread where it is no longer particularly relevant. Barry suggested simply inserting one word - Specification, and when I saw it thought ahha - thats what was needed to replace "type and thickness" which I...

While sorting out the ISAF-RSD issues it would be very much appreciated if IOMICA would try to avoid rocking the ISAF-RSD boat. With respect Jan, the issue affects the IOMICA as much as any other class currently under RSD. Are you saying stop rocking the boat so we can hijack the whole operation qu...

I am afraid Roy that the last post has gone somewhat off point. If I were to expand on your justifications I might well say Might is Right and that killing for possible deprevation of oil was justified. The situation is clear, we have rules that are wide open to individual interpretation, something ...

Lester, Your proposal for the two rule changes to specify during an event is the obvious solution and would be supported by NZL. I do not see any serious argument here that this is not the intention, the removal from Appendix E seems to be the problem in that the Class Rules were not changed to acco...

Roy Did not the rules at some stage in fact state that corrector weights be attached as you suggest - with an epoxy or resign cover. My mid 1990s hull has the weigths like this. At local level there has been much discussion on this. I am of the opinion that if a boat requires corrector weights to co...
