Reply To: Boom Rules Anomaly
Thanks Alistair that’s very clear.
A pity the Rule had to be changed in the first place, but I see the point about being able to make and measure Booms to a ‘standard’, easily.
I guess the idea was to bring the OK’s into line with the Finn and Europe methods.
The Finn rules seem quite similar to the Ok’s, while the Europe, (if I’ve understood it correctly!) is a fixed position for the bolt.
Perhaps a ‘grandfather’ clause should have been used for us, with older (pre new rule) boats being measured from the ‘sailtrack extended’ position, but it does make things more complicated during measuring, that’s granted.
