    Olympic Classes for Paris 2024

    Much better with 4 boat team racing in laser radial - boats are ready - 2 of the sailors ready - 2 additional sailors can be from fx, nacra etc - 4 boat team racing with 1-2-7-8 as loosing combination is much more challenging than 3 boat
  2. Seriously, I don´t even know how you would do this within RRS. It is very similar to pumping and the use of the O-flag. But that has it's own appendix:http://www.racingrulesofsailing.org/rules?part_id=41 And it must be policed by judges on the water, just like rule 42, since it would in effect be illegal propulsion using the kite upwind.

    Bora gulari nacra 17 incident

    .. and it shows the seriousness of foiling. Someone WILL be sliced in two. Mark my words.
  4. Suggest the sailors wear full PPE when sailing to the racecourse. Goggles, disposable coveralls and facemask. Get a few headlines with that and case will be solved.

    Lasers - Applying a Blow Torch

    I guess there are more lasers built every year than Bavarias... Looking at the LP video I now know why a significant part of new boats leak.

    Lasers - Applying a Blow Torch

    Easy. Trademarks were transferred so that the offshore company could invoice LP for using the trademark and thus avoid taxes.

    Well, Clark Mills that designed the optimist donated the design.BK should do the same. To ILCA

    Lasers - Applying a Blow Torch

    I think this shows the lack of understanding of what constitutes the ´brand´. Kirby understands that the brand is the boat, the design. LPE does not understand this. Take Rolex as an example. To change the name would be impossible. And it would take many useless watches before people understood that the brand had changed if other watches were sold as Rolex. Sell another singlehander as laser and no-one will buy it.
