At the A.G.M. it was decided to allow any type of clew tie down (rope , Velcro etc) other than a metal ring.
One sailor at the Nationals admitted to using a Velcro tie down throughout the event claiming he did not know it was illegal – no names, no pack drills!
Moral – read the Measurements rules to check if your boat is legal to enter Comet Class Association events.
The Rig Debate
The Association would like to hear your opinion on the rule that a change of rig during an event is not allowed.
Please e-mail me with your opinion(s) and I will add it (them) to “The Rig Debate” in the member’s area.
