    There's nothing in interpretation/ruling 72 that prohibits the backstays being kept tucked away between the mainsail skins. So long as the specified parts (dogbones, ferrule caps, strops and other specified parts) are used and the runners can be adjusted (that does not limit them being adjusted...

    What if they're not removed? Perhaps they just run down the back of the mast inside the twin mainsail skins. There is no weight saving, but there's a fair chunk of wind drag gone...

    I saw a bobby run to an armed robbery with his truncheon in the early 1990's. I'm not sure that was brave or stupid...

    It might have a lot to do with Persico Marine being fucked. Yards at Bergamo & Carrara are closed.

    I'll be happy to read something from "that notorious Kiwi-journo-who-shall-not-be-named" that isn't quoting someone else's work and spliced together with little more than speculation or rumour.  Journalist is a stretch. Story teller is more appropriate...
