The final process in completing the SCR conversion for the Class Rules is taking a little longer than expected. Since the decisions at the AGM there have been many other modifications and changes. These are mainly rewording and reformatting. Some new rules have been introduced but the majority of the rules will have retained their original meaning.
Last week in Barcelona representatives of the OKDIA met with World Sailing technical staff to talk through the few remaining issues. Most have been solved and will be incorporated into the latest draft.
The plan is still to have these new rules come into effect in the new year.
There will be some errors in the draft of the rules. To avoid the same error being submitted many times we will list them here as they are found. The error will be underlined and the modification will be in red.
- Diagram 9 (F 3.5 Spars Dims.) Boom outer band is shown as being measured from the aft face of the mast (‘extended sail track’ aft face) 2640mm Max. Rule F.4.4 gives boom outer band being 2640mm from ‘gooseneck hole centre’. (drawing will be modified)
- F.3.3 (b) The spar extrusion shall include a fixed sail groove or track which may not or may not be integral with the spar. (….may or may not…)
