  1. Gouv, my comment was in regard to YOUTH Worlds! What grown-ups or Olympic hopefuls (or their countries) do with their money is up to them.
  2. Wow! Is Laser sailing now for kids with rich parents? Going from other parts of the world to this regatta will easily set you back a couple of grand. What for? Those from so called emerging nations are better served by saving money, buying their own boat and having fun at home.
  3. It is a Russian National class now. Judging by the information on this site it is going strong. http://www.parusniy-sport.org/klassy-yacht-shvertboty/luch http://www.parusniy-sport.org/klassy-yacht-shvertboty/luch/Events
  4. Or a new class name. All boats will be black. And the logo on the sail will be helmet, you know, that black one.
  5. I found the part about the trials most interesting.

    "fu ws" (from the front page)

    Speaking of RS Aero.. Who is the current licensed builder of it Down Under? 10 years ago it was the company that a few years later was involved in Laser class / Kirby fustercluck. https://www.sail-world.com/Australia/Australian-Laser-builder-expands-range/-50063 If builders are still the same people - Spencer family/Global Sailing Limited/Performance Sailcraft Australia, then, in my opinion, this isn't a plus for selecting RS over others, Laser including.
  7. The sailor search function hasn't been forking properly for at least a month. Right now I can't even log-in with my own sailor ID. That's not good. Did WS burn all the money on fancy-shmancy things and forgot to pay the ordinary people in charge of the web?

    2017 Rules Rule 69

    It's in the Rules -> Definitions Keep Clear A boat keeps clear of a right-of-way boat (a) if the right-of-way boat can sail her course with no need to take avoiding action and, (b) when the boats are overlapped, if the right-of-way boat can also change course in both directions without immediately making contact. As to the vid you've posted.. Being a judge myself, I actually had a good laugh. That doesn't mean that I'd support such actions (as a judge ) Did I also see a smile on W crew's face in that video?

    FP - old news

    I'm wondering why is this year's Kieler Woche that took place in June is on the FP as if it was sailed just recently. Someone forgot to check the facts? It's one of the major events in WS circus and biggest event for other classes in Germany, but why now? This regatta is already forgotten..

    J70, cheating and pros

    I wish people would consult J/70 Class Rules, Builder Specifications and J/70 FAQs before defending Carlo's actions. All are available here, btw: http://www.j70ica.org/class-office-rules Was Carlo's keel changed by licensed manufacturer or with the approval of the licensed manufacturer and his boat’s Manufacturers Declaration re-issued? Most probably not. The emphasis here is on words 'licensed manufacturer'. The Technical Committee for the event has no saying in this matter, I'm afraid. From FAQs

    If you're perfectly honest, use calibrated load cell. It's that simple.
