Just dredging this up because I need to replace my old plate-hook tether..
(It's a PITA that AS aren't aligned with WS.. )
Each crew member shall have:
5.02.2 A tether that shall:
IPRCS is just a straw man, let's assume there's some other set of rules for the sake of discussion, please.
btw - pittwater club in question now states races are under RRS. AS still avoiding the conflict, preferring to strong-man smaller less well resourced clubs?
right - but the case you cited specifically says
Rule 89.1 specifies the types of organizations that are authorized to be the organizing authority for races governed by The Racing Rules of Sailing.
.. and it came about due to someone wanting to appeal a protest to the MNA, of which the OA was...
The wording is "A ‘Prohibited Event’ means an event"
WS Definitions for 'Event' list the following:
Event, Class; Event, Graded; Events, International; Events, World Sailing; Events, Major; Events, National; Events, Recognized
25.8.12 has some more words as to what things like 'major' and...
I can't see how RRS 89.1 (or any part of the RRS) applies to races if you're not using the RRS.
RRS 89.1 applies because of RRS 3 - acceptance of rules.

Australian sailing fees are about 6x those numbers in the band I live in.
My dinky club pays 20% of our membership subscription (or ~ 10% of gross income excluding capex grants) to AS.

I know of an unaffiliated club (maybe same club you mentioned previously?) which often has some reasonably high profile sailors participating in its events.
One way to break the ridiculous anti-trust stranglehold is to call out AS on those sailors, or encourage even more visible and larger...
Is this (shudder) optis?
The following fittings are permitted

Just like here in Oz, YNZ's majority of funding (~$5.7M in 2022) is from government for the 5-ringed circus, not affiliation fees ($0.6M). See the annual report at https://www.yachtingnz.org.nz/resources/annual-report
So just like in Oz, YNZ's focus is driven by...
Serious question - does anyone actually see this happen in the US or anywhere else?
Here in Aus, it is overwhelmingly the class associations that drive inter-club events, states, nationals, etc.
Further up - it is the international class associations which drive at their level.
Electrolyte supplements are best
Hydralyte works, but is exxy. I use the local ALDI brand - they look the same to me.
Who in their right mind uses plastic bottles only once? Put a couple of bicycle bottle cages in their boats and use bike bottles. Easy to fill.
Honestly - for kids, what's...
