Re: The Sausage Smuggler

Just give them to a rescue boat at the end of the day if you break a extension you are more then likely going to need a rescue boat especially in chop If we as a class make a agreement among sailors to throw all spares in a boat and use them if the situation occurs I am worried that say weymouth you...

Re: Broken luff track?

Another thought is did this happened with the old bolt rope on the older sails wondering weather because we are now using a plastic bolt rope rather then a actul bolt rope there maybe less give so hard plastic in a track that's hard plastic +the batten pocket as a lever effect equals track breaking ?

Re: Broken luff track?

Looks to me as if the leeward battern pocket is just acting like a lever ?

Re: Broken luff track?

Re: 2017 - World Championships skippers meeting

Ok
Why is the rig out dated ? Numbers are not dropping the class is booming boats are good value for money second hand market is strong and it's enabling youngsters into the class
So why is it out dated ?

Re: Proposal to put a national flag on the sail

So scanning the pics from the worlds I see barely anyone with a flag also no gold silver or bronze stickers on the head of the sail
Does this mean I can have my union flag at the head as no one else seems to be using it :-)
