Re: New Nylet Spirit is here! Progress at last!

A few question based upon your photographs:- 1/ Why do you have two sets of shrouds on each side… I was under the impression that the IOM class allow only one set. If you are classing this additional shroud as a check stay it may NOT be attached to the mast above a point 100 mm above the heel of the...

Re: Fundamental measurement

No I have not missed your point at all. One might suggest that it is you that has missed the point. The passage below has been extracted from the CERTIFICATION MEASUREMENT FORM. DECLARATION BY THE OFFICIAL MEASURER I confirm that I have checked the boat for compliance with the IOM Class Rules utilis...

Re: Wording of rule changes

Steve I wish I had read this first before reading your tank posing. And I am again intrigued – just how long have you been a RSA NCA Officer. ? One might suggest not very long. Hang in there for few months – you will see it happening as it always does. There is a lot of back ground discussion taking...

Re: Fundamental measurement

Steve, I was intrigued by your question and wondered if you actually are a Measurer. There is nothing historical or sinister about this and nothing has in reality changed. Whilst a tank test is not specifically stated the boat has to be measured and the overall draft 370 to 420mm and hull depth and ...

Re: hailing boats over early under the 2013-16 rules

How about not worrying about how your number is called and simply making a point of not being over the line. In full size sailing no numbers are generally called, only a signal that someone was noted as being over. You know when you are over, all you are doing is waiting to see if anybody else notic...

Re: anti-bickering sugggestion

Good manners and fairness have never been traits one could ever associate with sailing whether it be full size or radio sailing. After all there is much at stake here, there is much to prove. Doing the walk of kings along the bank ahead of the fleet is a priceless and an exhilarating experience. The...

Re: IOMICA measurement interpretation

Lester, Forgive me answering your question so clearly intended for the MYA Technical Committee as to whether you have missed something, for it would seem that you have indeed missed something quite vital. This is the IONICA website and if you were expecting a reply to your question from the MYA Tech...

Re: Data transmission from the boat

Whilst we are in the process rule changes to allow telemetry give some serious consideration to Bandwidth. In Model Air applications one would seldom see more than 5 planes in the air at any one time. Most model air users are disciplined to shut down their transmitter and receiver between flights wh...
