Yes, I agree that rule A.14.1.(a) will need to be amended. It should not be necessary to put this to a vote as the GBR motion which was passed by WC is clear in its intent. The further change required is housekeeping.

I don't see any problems provided there is provision for rig weights on the certificate.

We should also look at a rule revision to have the weight of correctors and their precise location in the hull included on the certificate.

The RMG Flash unit is a visual reporting unit and thus one needs to be close to the boat to be able to see the LED unit. Let's not complicate the issue by discussing other reporting systems which, to be of any use, would require an electronic link to the boat and purely on a cost basis should not be...

Mast Bend

If you refer to the TS3 manual at http://www.tsdesigns.com.au/ts3Instruct ... al_1_0.pdf Page 7 will describe how to go about applying pre-bend. My high tensile aluminium jig is 800mm not the 650mm shown in the manual, I find this works better for me.

I agree with Richard in that I lucked onto the additional nomination for Chairman as I was finalising the member voting form for AUS so it was not a major issue to amend the form. A last amendment date against the AGM link on the IOM site flagging any changes would have been helpfull.
