New Mainsail Batten Proposal

Thursday, 07 June 2012 22:32

As many of you are aware, last year the Board of Governors passed a change to the rules to allow a “full batten” on the main and to lengthen the other two battens to what makes sense. The Rules Committee was asked to query the sail makers and devise the details of the new rule for next year’s rule book. Many sail makers provided feedback and the committee has been working with this year’s Board on this and the other changes approved last year. It has been ten months now and the following is the message from Steve Stewart, our Chief Measurer to the Board that I would like to share with you all.

Don Bedford, SCIRA Conmodore.

From the Technical Committe

I need circulate some important news concerning the proposals voted and passed during the Board meetings called during the last Worlds at Rungsted/Danmark.

The Technical Committee is informed that at least four sail-makers have modified the Snipe main sails adopting the top full batten and longer middle and lower battens.
