There is discussion on two potential equipment rules changes that have been posted on the J/109 Class forum. These changes include the addition of a Bob Stay to provide support for the Bow Sprit when extended, and the use of Inhaulers to barber haul the jib. You may read the details and are encouraged to post your comments on the forum so that voices are heard before the class votes on a formal proposed rules change.
