    ^Why odd? There seems to have been consultation right through, even when decisions were solely at the discretion of the COR/D. There was a bit of 'We haven't been included' from IBAR early on, but it has been (publicly) harmony and brotherhood ever since - regardless one shocking iniquity after another being pointed out here

    You conveniently fail to mention the little clause stating that the rule couldn't be changed without unanimous consent - the basis on which they entered But spin it your way......if you are lucky no one will notice.

    Think of it as an ACC-like collegial effort - as opposed to the self serving and contentious rules under the last 2 trustees......

    ^ That's awkward ....... Is this true? These guys say that RM from the WW foil now ~is~ allowed? They don't actually. They say that the rule will soon be changed - in light of experience and concerns expressed in an attempt to give a more stable and controllable (safer) result Sounds perfectly likely...
  7. my 2c Maybe it's just time to rethink your definitions, rather than whine about them - I mean wasn't the last cat really a thinly disguised tri? But if the AC75 is a 'tri' after all - so much the better, a nice continuum from AC35 then and one that should be comforting to those who cry "Back to a mono? - All is lost!"

    Sure, it is partly a matter of which point in the past 160+ years you want to declare 'traditional'. There will always be some aspect you can use to beat on the COR/D if that is your aim I agree in general that the defender supplying 'a package' to anyone is not ideal. Obviously they are hurting for numbers - they have out-teched almost everybody But applying sportsmanship and transparency as the basis for competition is still a huge step forward IMO Trying to fit traditional, cutting edge, affordable, great match races, performance, fair, best in the sport, multiple teams, DOG legal, international, 'popular timezone', wide distribution, sponsor friendly, elitist, non-elitist etc etc all under one umbrella is a big ask....... better is a start - 'cause perfect for everyone it can't be.....
