    Here is a link to the regatta report from the just completed UK IOM Nationals at Fleetwood, Lancs. - 84 boats - winds from light to 30kts. https://gbriom.com/2018/08/29/fleetwood-delivers-2018-iom-nationals-report/ And take a look at the link near the bottom of the page to the Damian Ackroyd photos - especially pages 2 and 3 for some wild C rig action.

    Rod Carr has been making sails for RC boats for decades - he knows his stuff. He uses PX-75 for Santa Barbara class. http://www.carrsails.com/catalog--price-list.html The SB is a heavy boat and the load on the sails is considerable - so the re-enforced PX-75 is a great solution. John

    In the ROW rules (10 - 13) the keep clear boat must do just that - there is no 'room to keep clear' So we can dismiss R 11from the discussion. Also dismiss R 16 as S did not alter course as the boats converged - S only altered course at the last moment to avoid P. John
