    Kiwis lead JJ Giltinan

    only 3 sails per season, and you need six sails across the two rigs, as mentioned they must be stamped in about 4 months prior to the JJ Giltinan If you sail a US, NZ or European regatta in the aussie off-season you can gain an extra sail or two, an aussie main might be a little heavier because its built to be reefable? Maybe Frogman can expand on any other differences?

    1. Comanche are expected and obliged by the rules to ENFORCE them, e.g. protest 2. the gentlemanly option was for the infringing party to RETIRE after the incident. RRS Basic Principles. SPORTSMANSHIP AND THE RULES Competitors in the sport of sailing are governed by a body of rules that they are expected to follow and enforce. A fundamental principle of sportsmanship is that when competitors break a rule they will promptly take a penalty, which may be to retire.

    yet to be finalised also the scoring can't 'do' the averaging, which won't be known till the series completes your prediction may be realised, or .....

    ha ha, no, yes, kinda fact is the League rolls a huge percentage of it's budget into the fleet/ racing, more than any other sporting club i'd say. Probably the only reason there is a quality fleet of 18s racing. Woody was a steady hand in directing and managing the club to this position. As Ate mentions the 16s have quite large and vibrant community clubs and support the fleet, the association , basically the combined clubs, have set up a new boat package, and sails/rig package that is a huge saving
