Anders,

FRA NCA will be represented at AGM by Remi Bres and Achille Chatin, who leaves France this Saturday.

Should I give them FRA vote just on a mail or will you define a document before ?

Thanks

Hello,

On Barbados application form for these worlds, there is written :
" Battery Charging facilities will be provided (110 volts Two pin American type and UK three pin 220 volts ) "

Could someone from Barbados organisation confirm that 220V will be available ?

The good news is that I think we are all agreed that the rule needs to be changed, so that corrector weights should be fixed for an event. Why not make a proposal to the World Council to return the class rule to what it said during 2005 -- that corrector weights shall be fixed during an event? I ag...

Roy I have to tell that many boats in Europe use Velcro to fix their corrector weights. As a boat gets older it gets heavier and you need to remove some weight to get to the 4kg and still be competitive, velcro is great for this. If it is glued with so much epoxy that you seem to use, it's virtually...

Unfortunately, I can't attend this WC, Barbados is too far for me. But next year there will be an EC!

If a measurer requires something, I will glue my corrector weights, but as Alfonso asks earlier, what is fixed enough for you?
1 point of glue, or 20 grams of glue?

Roy, I'm sorry if I disturb your logic, but if I need to add 200g of lead in my hull, I don't want to put lead + a certain huge amount of resin to be sure it stays in place. I was in Marseille and Dubrovnik, and no measurer had ever discussed anything on my corrector weights fixing. The example of a...

I have now a light mast (below 100g) on my boat, with weights in the hull to comply with the 4 kg limit. If I change my mast for an heavier/stiffer one, how may I remove part of my corrector weights if they were permanently fixed? I use velcro to fix those weights, and it is my responsibility as own...

The battery is not remote control equipment. It is related equipment (i.e no battery = no radio :D ) which is also defined under rule C 5.3 (d) and therefor may not be moved around the boat to change trim. If you have evidence of skippers doing this during a race you have a valid protest. :twisted:...

Certainly, I've got the same for B and C rigs, but for A rig with light wind, if you want a jib boom as low as possible, that system doesn't work.

I am sorry, maybe I don't understand english as well as I would like, but do you mean that the solution applied on hundreds of IOM, a line attached at the bottom of the hull, is not a good solution, and should be forbidden in the rules?
