From the Class Secretary – Voting for the proposed rule changes brought forward by the Technical Committee in July closed after 30 days on November 12, 2017. The proposal received more than the two-thirds votes necessary to be adopted. These changes were mostly administrative and included replacing references from the defunct ISAF to the new World Sailing entity, updating references to relevant rules including new references to the Class’s safety rules in World Sailing Offshore Special Regulations Appendix B, and a minor change to Rule 6.1.
The updated class rules and constitution are now posted on the website and take effect January 1, 2018. The new rules are available via the menu by mousing over Class and clicking on Constitution or Rules to view as desired. Previous versions of the Rules and Constitution are available via the menu by mousing over Class and clicking on Other Documents.
